Taste Testing Tuesdays (14)

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...we have one ARC that you've probably seen many teasers of on this fine day, but I will venture to share one that has not been posted yet...PLUS one more sampling of an eBook that is lingering by my side just waiting to be finished.
Let's take a taste, shall we?

A fourth note arrives just before class ends.  It's in the form of a miniature airplane, and it literally sails to me, landing with a whisper on my desk just as Mr. Daimler turns back from writing an equation on the board.  It's so perfect I hate to touch it, but I unfold its wings, and there's a message written in neat block letters. -- pg 202, Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (ARC)

She found herself standing on a cliff, overlooking a vast and harrowing sea. The waves surged, throwing themselves at the rocks below as if in battle with the earth. A single dwelling stood like a ramshackle heap of sod and sticks, thrown together by someone half blind. -- pg 86, Dreams of Beauty by Aubrie Dionne


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!
