Taste Testing Tuesdays (30)

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.  Normally seen on Tuesday's, hence the name, this week's edition is being delivered to you on a Wednesday.  Why?  Because I, just kidding....we were celebrating the book birthday of a new release yesterday and so this one moved over to today's post.
On the menu this week ... a book I literally just finished about 10 minutes ago, and one that I am making my way through with a giggle and a grin.
Shall we have a taste?

"Barnacles!" he told her. "Old as barnacles." Besides the merstories, he had taught her how to sing sea chanteys, which she in turn taught Dogie and which none of them sang for Signe, because, well, Signe, they knew, would say, "Is that appropriate?" and if Keeper were being honest, she would have to say that while she didn't think anything was wrong with them, they did, she had to admit, have a few words in them that were even more supercharged than "stupid", so it was highly likely that Signe would fail to admire them the same way that Keeper, Mr. Beauchamp, and Dogie did, so the chanteys were not sung for Signe. -- pg 97, Keeper by Kathi Appelt (ARC)

I spoke to my friend Sophie who had just returned from an afternoon of apartment stalking.  It'a a little like deer stalking.  Only instead of taking place in the woods, it takes place in Manhattan.  -- pg 122, It Could Be Worse, You Could Be Me by Ariel Leve


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 list


Until next time....happy reading!
