Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19

First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

Taste Testing Tuesdays (5)

Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays!
Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

On the menu this week is a sample of two books I'm currently reading.  The first is a thus far a rather awe-inspiring memoir.  The second promises to be a great chick-lit pick.  Let's take a sample, shall we?

I heaved myself off out of the gate with a massive push, unaware of what the competitors on either side of me were doing.  I got the lead early, and for the entire first quarter, was surprised by the empty course ahead of me. -- pg 116, Double Take:  A Memoir by Kevin Michael Connolly (ARC)

A few minutes later she ceremoniously placed a bowl of oatmeal in front of me, proped her hands on her hips, and smiled.  "I made a special surprise for my sweet little honey-bunny. 
Happy birthday." -- pg 60, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman (ARC)


Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

*Grab your current read

*Open to a random page

*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

*Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Until next time....happy reading!

A great teaser for the first book (Double Take), it makes me want to find out more. Not too sure about the second book though "honey-bunny", sounds rather sickly, don't you think? Still, you can never real tell.

Petty Witter: I can see what you mean on the second, but like I said, it's suppose to be you kind of expect that to a certain degree. From the synopsis and a few other pages I scanned, I probably didn't pick the best section to highlight, but alas...the fates spoke and opened to this passage. =0)

Both sound good.
