Taste Testing Tuesdays (17)


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 sampling from three books currently in progress.  First, another animal themed work but with kitties instead of pups this time around.  Second, a look beyond the looking glass (so to speak)...had to slip this one in for a read with all the anticipation for the new movie coming out this weekend.  Finally, a long lost treasure....meaning I bought it when it came out, but one thing led to another and I finally have it in my possession once again to read (in preparation for the second book of which I am an ARC)!
Let's have a taste, shall we......



On those days when you find yourself a little cranky beacuse of too many people, too many demands, and too little time, take a break and demand some time alone, some self-nurturing time, time to be, time to replenish, time to reconnect with you.  Leo does.  -- pg 58, The Tao of Mia and Leo by Jeffra A. Nicolson




To philosophers, procrastination is a puzzle of Carrollian magnitude, even though it is a strikingly common puzzle (kind of like Sudoku, but not as much fun) -- after all, there must have been some reason why the White Rabbit was so late at the beginning of Alice's adventures! -- pg 26-27, Alice in Wonderland and Philosophy:  Curiouser and Curiouser by William Irwin and Richard Brian Davis









On the neighboring shelf sat Alice's "Drink Me" bottle.  Bertie slanted a look at it; Mr. Hastings had let her sniff the contents once, and she'd never forgotten the combination of triple apple, rose, mango, Arabian coffee, cantaloupe, cola, licorice, and mint.  -- pg 74, Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev







 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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!

Love your teasers! All of them look good. I've started to reread Alice and I can't wait to see the new movie. Here's my teaser.

Great teasers. I really like the Alice cover, too. They all sound like good reads. Enjoy them. Thanks for the comment on my page, too! :)

"Confuzzled" Shannon: Yes, Eyes Like Stars grabbes my attention from the cover alone! (the picture I put here doesn't even do it justice) ON the Alice front, it's almost time for the movie!
