QUICK NOTE...Update: 2/19/19

Still working through things. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. Baby steps back into the blogging world and started to grow, so you know, a post here, a post there, and away we go! Hope you stay along for the ride!

Taste Testing Tuesdays (81)

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 YA fantasy book written by a first time author who happens to be....16 years old.  (Yep...I officially feel like an under-achiever...)  Ready for a taste?  Here we go....
"This is my power.  using my mind, I can send messages to anyone I desire.  The message can appear on any surface:  paper, furniture, and even your very skin."
-- pg 74, Journey Into the Realm:  The Elf Girl by Markelle Grabo
First off, yeah...I don't think I'd want messages appearing on my skin....kinda creepy.  BUT...being able to send messages to others, any time, anywhere without an electronic device....COUNT ME IN!  It's like Twitter only amped up with the magics and everything.  So far the story is rather interesting, as Ramsey makes her way to the....well, you'll see.

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!

This one looks scrumptious! =) Kind of reminds me of the magic of the elves in Chris Paolini's works. The cover is very pretty as well.

"I was a queen, and you took away my crown; a wife, and you killed my husband; a mother, and you deprived me of my children. My blood alone remains: take it, but do not make me suffer long. --Marie Antoinette" -page 367 of Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran. It's a wonderful book! I recently posted the review on my blog.


Kathy Martin said...

Interesting concept! I'm assuming the messages aren't permanent. My teasers are from The Twisted Thread by Charlotte Bacon and The Emperor of Nihon-ja by John Flanagan. Happy reading!

Shy said...

Seriously, this is the kind of superpower that I am dying to have! At least we don't have to worry about charging the batteries or what-nots right??

This is the first time I heard of this book/author. Will definitely have to include it into my list!

I'm more and more convinced I have to have a copy of this, it sounds and looks magical.

Juju at Tales of said...

Wow. Cool power and great teaser.

"Confuzzled" Shannon said...

This sounds like my kind of read. I love fantasy!

Misha said...

Sending messages using one's mind would b incredible! Seems like an intriguing read.

GMR said...

Arya: -glances around- I've yet to read his work actually.... *ducks flying objects* Agreed on the cover though....and nice choice of teaser! Will definitely have to check out your review. thanks for sharing!

Kathy Martin: Definitely not permanent. ^_^ Ooh...teasers! Thanks for the links!

Shy: LOL...absolutely. Love introducing my fellow readers to new bookish finds. ^_^

Petty Witter: It is....a few flaws, but the story is standing strong so far.

Juju: Agreed, thanks Juju!

"Confuzzled" Shannon: Then I definitely suggest a read through of this one. ^_^

Misha: I know, right? Interesting power indeed...
