Taste Testing Tuesdays (53)

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."
"I was a soldier, lady," said Glarfin.
-- pg 118, Pegasus by Robin McKinley (ARC)

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!

Making a pie is not easy and this expression must apply to the eating of it.  It originates in the nineteenth-century, when sweet pie was a common dish and the word "pie" was associated with simple pleasures.
-- pg 61, Spilling the Beans on the Cat's Pajamas by Judy Parkinson

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, 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.* 


Until next time....happy reading!

Oh these are good teasers! I really want to read Pegasus. I love McKinley's Sunshine, and need to read more of her books!

Gina said...

Juju: YAY! ^_^

Bella: You should! So far, so good. This is actually my first book by this particular author, but I'm told on the whole they are wonderful.

Okay, love the title of the second one, just way too funny! Again, sounds like a great one for my hubby who loves random facts.

And the first...ahh...I've been drooling over that cover since I first saw it. I had no idea that it was so heavy on the fantasy side though, hmmm....

I just took a peak at Pegasus while at the book signing the other night. It sounded intriguing! may be I was in a fantasy state of mind!

Gina said...

the1stdaughter: Yep...definitely quirky but fun read. As for PEGASUS...still not quite finished...blaming HP for that... ^_^

Michelle: Perhaps.... ^_^
