Taste Testing Tuesdays (21)

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 ... one book that someone slipped into the dark corners of my TBR, but no worries, it is being read as we speak (well maybe not literally depending on when you are reading this, but you know what I mean).  The second is one I was sent for review with another by the same author...the other book is going to be part of an informal blog tour coming this May in conjuction with Amy at My Friend Amy.
Shall we have a taste?

Lucy's eyes fell on one older woman whose silvery hair and three strands of good pearls offset her dark velvet jacket as she stood next to a younger brunette with Maria Shriver cheekbones.  The two of them looked vaguely familiar, but then the rich and powerful were New York's particular genre of celebrity.  -- pg 102, The Overnight Socialite by Bridie Clark

When you go walking with Leisha, you walk with style.  You know she'll tell you what she sees from where she sees it, which is up high. -- pg 48, House of Dance by Beth Kephart


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!

Two great teasers, I especially like the one from Socialite.

"Your papa want you to be kind to negroes, massa" July said as she moved a long step closer toward him. - page 205,TheLong Story by Andrea Levy.

I'm rather late...but here we go

Tassie and the Black Baron by Katie Roy

"That revolting guide chappy chased us up here," said Tassie's mum. "Why have you got a candle on your head, dear?"

And I lost the page number. Nooo! Sorry.

GMR said...

Seems like the general consensus is for House of Dance...we shall see how it goes! ^_^

Yunaleska: Nice teaser! Now I need to know why the candle is on her head too!
