Taste Testing Tuesdays (38)


Good afternoon (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.
On the menu this week ... one book that's up for grabs in a current contest here on the site, another I'm sinking my teeth into (pun intended), and a third, well, you know you love the third.
Let's have a taste...shall we?
  

 Andrea was in some other stage of grief, one not previously documented by the authors of grief books.  She was in a stage that should have been known as Long Periods of Exhausted Stupor Punctuated by Psychotic Episodes.  -- pg 147, The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand

It's hard to get a really good teaser out of this one since the story kind of rotates between characters and events, but it's definitely interesting.....








But as the blood flowed into me, I began to feel my strength returning.  Her blood tasted sweet, not at all salty and metallic like I had expected, and I began to crave it.  -- pg 22, Evin Driscol Series:  The Chosen Historian by Randi Ertz

Thus far this vampire story combines several elements from classic lore and present day ideas....be interesting to see where the author takes it from here.....










What followed was not silence, but more mayhem:  swearing, shouting, and fists hammering into flesh.  I got to my feet and ran in a crouch toward the back door.  -- pg 118, Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick (ARC)

Oh my...hope everyone is okay!  Unless it's Marcie...yeah, that girl is seriously just...Ugh!

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
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!
