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 title coming to a bookshelf near you that's very curious indeed. Ready for a taste?
What stood before me now was no refuge from monsters but a monster itself, staring down from its perch on the hill with vacant hunger. Trees burst forth from broken windows and skins of scabrous vine gnawed at the walls like antibodies attacking a virus -- as if nature itself had waged war against it -- but the house seemed unkillable, resolutely upright despite the wrongness of its angles and the jagged teeth of sjy visible through sections of collapsed roof.
-- pg 79, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Wow...this one is an intersting roller coaster. One minute you think there's no way any of it can be true and the next, leaves you with MORE than a shadow of doubt. Stay tuned....review to come soon.....
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.*
