Taste Testing Tuesdays (31)

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 ... two books I wish I simply had more time to finish!  (The lament heard round the world for bookaholics though...right?)  The first, a spooky tale that leaves you looking over your shoulder when you hear a bump in the night (no seriously, it does!)...the second, the snarky stories keep coming but never get old!
Let's have a taste....

Two hiking boots were planted in front of me.  Two long muscular legs, in jeans.  I gazed up to see the guy from the pines, tousle-headed, bedroom eyes...gazing directly at me.  He caught my gaze and held it. -- pg 78, Possessions by Nancy Holder

Okay, so this part isn't decidedly NOT scary...but I tell you there are REALLY some spooky parts!

There are three elevators in the building but one is continually out of service, so waiting requires patience and stamina.  I have often found my neighbour in the hallway with reading material.  -- pg 14, It Could Be Worse, You Could Be Me by Ariel Leve
It's really hard to pull a two line quote from this one.  The stories are funny but without the sentence before or after, they lose their edge a bit.  This one we can all relate to though being book-a-holics and all.



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!
