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's finall ypicked up a little steam, another that is starting off with the right ingredients, and a third (...yes a third...) eBook YA readers will be curious to see.
My sullen new friends had read so many books that I hadn’t and had already, by twenty-three years old, become fluent with so many terms, ideas, and words that I had never heard of.And they could put sentences together in class using so many of them that I was sure if I tried to contribute to the discussion, it would be instantly discovered that I had been accepted by accident, that someone had messed up and put my application in the wrong pile.In the world I had occupied before coming to this campus, I was the one with the words. -- pg 96, Blood, Bones, and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton (ARC)
This one was slow to draw my interest but it accomplished it about 30 pages or so ago now just after we learn about the author’s experience at a summer camp…and some wayward lobsters.Curious to see where we go from here….
Myra got up and put her empty soda can in the garbage.“I didn’t say she made puppy coats.I said there were a lot of people who’d just as soon not have Yodel Watson around.” -- pg 11-12, Murder Takes the Cake by Gayle Trent (ARC)
Celebrating its book birthday today, I have to say….so far, so good!I love Daphne’s character (the lead though she doesn’t appear in this quote since she’s being spoken to) as well as all the quirky neighbors as we’ve heard a handful described by Myra, her neighbor.Should be one deliciously fun mystery….
Honestly, I didn't think he'd hang around there for Angelina Jolie's company; El Toro—the TorinoAthleticCenter—isn't the most romantic place in general, and right then? It was the kind of scene that made you glad some smartypants had invented deodorant...and made you realize that not everyone had bought into that concept. Or the whole “showering" idea. Ew. -- pg 45, Hickey of the Beast by Isabel Kunkle (ARC)
This is the full eBook version of the new serial novel being introduced by Candlemark and Gleam this coming month.A serial novel (for those of you that haven’t heard of the concept before …as I hadn’t either) is a book brought to you chapter by chapter on a weekly basis, much like in days gone by when mass distribution was more of an issue as to how fast and far the horse and cart could travel in a day’s time.The new version sees us receiving a weekly bookish dose of goodness electronically…all the sooner to enjoy the reading adventure.Oh and this one…loving it!The character voice is right on for the age and the writing makes it feel like you’re having a conversation with a close friend.
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.*
