Taste Testing Tuesdays (23)

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 sure to steal the hearts of dog lovers (wolves are their close kin), a second sharing the "tangled" stories of several characters, and a third that this sample is my first look in this book as well!
Let's have a taste, shall we?

Before Shunka could jump on the horrified newcomers, David dragged the stinking, filthy wolf outside and thoroughly hosed him down, grumbling and muttering as he fumbled around in the dark.  Now that Shunka had discovered this new tactic of rolling, it was the first of many distasteful baths for the wolf.  Fortunately, he also discovered smells less offensive and delighted in rolling on banana peels, cigars, and people wearing perfume.  -- pg 38, Shunka:  Life with an Artic Wolf by Marika Lumi Morgan

Though she guessed the true reason for Elwood's wish, Drallah did not acknowledge it in what she said next.  "Granashon is showing the way to you, not me," she said lightly.  "And like my mother always says:  Don't behasty, you'll be older soon enough!"  -- pg 79, The Winnitok Tales:  The Hunt for the Eye of Ogin by Patrick Doud (ARC)

Every morning at nine fifteen, Pauline and Bill donned identical raincoats, boots, and waterproof hats, and embarked on a power walk.  Their whole joined-at-the-hip thing was freaky.  -- pg 125, Tangled by Carolyn Mackler


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!

Definitely interested in Tangled, but the second one also looks like it could be really fun. Thanks for sharing!

I like the look of all of them!

Devices and Desires, by K J Parker

p. 356: Her handwriting was even smaller than usual, and for a moment he wasn't sure he'd be able to read it - now that would be a devilish refinement of torture, worthy of the stories of punishments reserved for damned souls in hell, to have a letter from her and not be able to make out what it said.

Gina said... looks like the second and third one caught your attention. Interesting...

Nayuleska: Nice teaser! Creepy yet vindictive....

I've been wanting to read Tangled for a long time...
