Taste Testing Tuesdays (34)


Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!  Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.  Normally seen on a Tuesday, this week's post has been moved to late Monday to accomodate a wonderful book tour coming through tomorrow from the fabulous folks over at Peachtree Publishers and Wednesday's vampish fun (you'll see). 
On the menu this week ... one book visiting us on a tour coming through next month and another humorous read recommended to me that I shall be just getting into later today.
Let's have a taste!




Hunger and thirst made his head throb.  When he found a wide stream, he celebrated by shouting, collapsing on the soil, and dunking half of his head beneath the surface.  -- pg 70, The Last Track by Sam Hilliard
So this one so far is reminding me in shady bits of author's Patricia Cornwell and James Patterson in story set up and multiple views.  This could get VERY interesting....
 






For a young renter, it's fairly common to receive e-mails calling for roommates and sublets for unreasonably brief periods of time.  Fully furnished bedroom available in three-person apartment for January and February!  Wait - and February?  Pinch me.  -- pg 56, How Did You Get This Number by Sloane Crosley (ARC)
Okay, okay...can I say that this is the first sample I've had of the book as well?  It is...and I cheated and read the rest of this excerpt...laughing all the way.  Can't wait to delve more into it....






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Until next time....happy reading!

Elie: Thanks! So far so good... AS for the title, yup, just my little twist to tie it all together. (Ha! Twist-tie...totally unintentional use there...) ^_^
