Taste Testing Tuesdays (73)

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 new book that celebrated its book birthday today and although I'm only about 17 pages in, I'm already loving it.  Ready for a taste? 

Just ahead, he could see the dark swath of the river. And then everything seemed to happen at once: the old man gunned the engine, the last figure attached itself to the door, the roof was ripped open so the night air poured in; perhaps the only thing that didn't change was the children, who slept on, thankfully oblivious.
-- pg 6, The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens (ARC)

Exciting isn't it?  That's not even the BEST part of what I've read so far.  To check out more about this exciting new series that makes its book one debut today, check out the official website.  Trust me, it's worth the click....


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!
