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! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. 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...two books that are soon to be finished and another I'll be cracking the spine on later today..
Ready for a taste?
"I never wanted this for you, Michael. I thought that when it was your time that you would be the one to hold the strings...Senator Corleone...Governor Corleone."
-- pg 101, It Came From the 70's by Connie Corcoran Wilson
If you haven't guessed where the movie quote (above) came from.....you DON'T know your classic films! It's from The Godfather in a memorable scene between Al Pacino and Marlon Brando....and is used here as an excerpt within the author's reeview of the first two films in this trilogy. Pretty good stuff....
Everything my brother writes is a lie, including the words 'Dear' and 'Sincerely'.
-- pg 60, 43 Old Cemetary Place: Till Death Do Us Bark by Kate Klise
Okay, so I know that's a small share, but to give too much of this one would ruin a good thing. I've read the first in thise series, missed the second and this is the third. So far, it's lost none of its charm despite the fact that I'm reading it electronically. Definitely recommend this series....you'll love the story as well as the puns. For example, the above excerpted letter is written by "Kitty Breth" about her brother "Kanine Breth" to "Rita O'Bitt". Sides hurt from laughing yet? ^_^
We negotiated mud by walking on palm leaves through trash cluttered areas. The ladies, sitting on the front porch, worked hand looms and performs a repetitive back and forth motion making the cloth longer and longer.
-- pg 42, Borneo Tom by "Borneo" Tom McLaughlin
Grant it, probably not the best quote, but one nonetheless as it is the first time I'm opening the book. It looks like it's going to be interesting with the combined text and illustrations working their magic. Can't wait. Watch for the blog tour next week featuring this title....
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.*
