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...a classic made over in shades of gray, green, and red (you'll see what I mean)...and a first taste of a YA sequel coming to a shelf near you. Ready...set...taste!
The wedding took place, and no one other than Elizabeth seemed to suspect the bride's condition. Mr. Collins appeared happier than he ever had despite the fact that Charlotte had to be reminded to use her fork several times over the course of dinner.
-- pg 110, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
Uh-oh. Sounds like someone has a condition worth watching...though I don't believe it has anything to do with preparing for the arrival of a little one. O_O Reading through this classic with a twist, but the jury is still out as to whether or not my final verdict will be a "yay" or "nay". Stay tuned...
When Phoebe had arrived in Manhattan four months ago from California, she had wanted her New York to be like the one she had seen in the movies.
Now it was, in a sense.
The only problem was that it was the wrong kind of movie.
-- pg 84, The Trust (A Secret Society Novel) by Tom Dolby (ARC)
This one I'll just be cracking the spine on today, so we're both getting our first official taste right now. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, so my hopes are set high for this one. We shall see what happens, but I have a feeling it'll be GOOD. This book is scheduled for release the first week of February. Mark your calendars!
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.*
