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 ...
It was the day after she'd seen Lucretia getting the better of a man half bigger than she was that she took a long, thoughtful look at Glarfin, and said, trying not to sound accusing, "You stand like a soldier."

My immersion in this one fluctuates since it can be heavy on the fantasy world side of things at times, but right now...totally into it. Sylvi and Ebon shouldn't be able to...but it sounds like her father can....oh, to have more reading time!

This is definitely a fun and funny little book capturing the meaning behind most of the phrases we use everyday. Some of the meanings are obvious, but others...wow, certainly unexpected.
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.*
