Taste Testing Tuesdays (52)

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
On the menu this week ... one book that I'm almost through with and another that I am taking my time with (sort of).
Ready for a taste?
She glanced at the dashboard clock.  Running out of time.  Two and a half hours.  Nothing's ever easy, Karen, is it? -- pg 126, Velocity by Alan Jacobson
This part is a little inner monologue as out lead character, Karen Vail, realizes a deadline is fast approaching.  The book started off with a bang...let's see if it finishes that way...
Later that night, when Gloria reflected on these next five minutes of her life, she would have no clear memory of them.  She would remember hearing the piano begin to vamp.  But she would not remember singing to the six men in the chairs at the lip of the stage.  -- pg 136, The Flappers:  Vixen by Jillian Larkin (ARC)
Apparently the 1920s are really the new "IT" thing right now, in YA at the very least.  Reading this one in conjunction with the B&N First Look Club...and enjoying getting to know the characters (and from what I've read thus far about Gloria...this scene takes her a bit out of her element...).

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

*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!

Vixen sounds so intriguing! I love the 20s so this book is probably right up my alley! I hope you're enjoying it!
