Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world!

With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...
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 lingers for just one more day (as in at lunch...it is finished) and another I'll be cracking the spine on later today so you get the first read! Ready...set...go!
Sometimes your tone can change things, I know that. Sometimes in text messages, people don't pick up tones, or they pick up tones that aren't there and completely misinterpret innocent messages. I've had countless arguments with Zoey over what she thought I meant by a five-word text. But this statement I made, it came with a tone, a deliberate one. And Rosaleen picked up on it.
-- pg 150, The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern (ARC)
How true is that?! I mean even with the teasers like this you can get the wrong tone sometimes, hence why the two sentence share turns into a three or four sentence blurb. I know I said I'd be finished last night, but alas...ran out of time, plus I know when to close a book down for the night (when you've reached a really intense part and you've had to reread a paragraph three times to grasp the significance....yep, time to shut it down). Today though...it will be done. (<--said in big echo voice for emphasis.)
In her mind, many times Marylou has said, "No thank you," or asked, "What, exactly, is in this so-called cocktail?" Of thrown the drink in the nurse's face, screaming obscenities, or leaped on the nurse and forced her to drink it, or just jumped up and ran, care assed and barefoot, out of the examining room and down the hall and out of the hospital and into the late September sunshine.
-- pg 8, The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady by Elizabeth Stuckey-French (ARC)
Well it certainly sounds like SOMEONE is regretting a drink they were served once upon a time. Gee, I wonder what was in it? Just kidding...I think I have a good idea what with the title and all but you gotta give her imagination credit for working overtime on possible alternative outcomes had she simply said no. Looks like this will be an interesting read to say the least. This book was released a bit earlier in the month so should you desire to read ahead, check a bookstore shelf near you.
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.*
