Taste Testing Tuesdays (29)

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 book that I technically finished yesterday but couldn't bare to not share (look for the review posting today as we celebrate a book birthday for the author) and another title that is coming along nicely.
Shall we have a taste?

I thought that the dingy gray condo in front of which I was now standing -- discernible as my new home solely by the fact that the movers had propped the storm door open with a cinder block -- was butthole hideous.  Although, on the bright side, it was exactly the same butthole hideous as every other condominium on this particular block of Orchard View condo complex, so at least it wasn't alone in its butthole hideousness.  -- pg 2, She's So Dead to Us by Kieran Scott (ARC)

My anticipation had as much dread as excitement.  I hoped an improved version of my brother would come home with his wife that nighht, but I knew that the arrogant sadist who'd left would probably be the one to return.  -- pg 70, My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares (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!

I love the sound of Shes So Dead To Us. The cover is so symbolic don't you think?

Petty Witter: Absolutely! A perfect fit for the title and the story!

Excellent teasers! I really liked both of them!
