Taste Testing Tuesdays (16)

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 ... a final taste of the book I shall finish today (oh yeah, one way or another, it's going down..), plus a sampling of my second current read and the new one about to enter the arena!
  Let's take a taste, shall we?

Mother stood across the room and smiled at us as at two small strangers, and said in a bemused voice that she knew of an old country custom; without an inn nearby and with no spare couch on which a visitor might sleep, she would allow us to bundle.  "I see no reason to keep the fire tonight or waste candles."  I felt the brush of Nehemiah's chin as he nodded behind me. -- pg 148, Angel and Apostle by Deborah Noyes

"Evie! Come over here!" Francesa ordered. "Meet Aunt Bitsy, Aunt Beebee, Uncle Croy, and Uncle Gib." I took a breath and walked over to them and shook everybody's hand. Omigod, I thought. How am I supposed to remember who's who? They don't even have real names! -- pg 122, This is Me From Now On by Barbara Dee (ARC)


Alice began to get rather sleepy, and went on saying to herself in a dreamy sort of way, "Do cats eat bats?  Do cats eat bats?"  When suddenly, THUMP!! -- pg 8, Stickfiguratively Speaking:  Alice's Adventures in Wonderland retold and illustrated by Jamison Odone (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!

Oh! I'm really interested in seeing that review of the stick figure Alice. Sounds very different.

And of course the Barbara Dee book!

Juju: =0)

The1stdaughter: Yes, I'm anxious to start it! The Barbara Dee book is taking priority so I can send it along. =0) (Although she's not the MAIN character, Francesa is a blast! You'll see....I'll be finished soon...)
