Taste Testing Tuesdays


Good afternoon (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 celebrated its book birthday last week, and a second from book two of a FUN-tastic series you should know about.
Ready for a taste?
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 


With a crackle from above as if the fabric of heaven itself were tearing in half, Lizzie's head snapped back, and a bolt of lightning shot from her mouth up into the clouds.  The flash was blinding.
-- pg 33, Wildefire by Karsten Knight (ARC)

So far, so good!  Seems to be a lot of action and from the sound of it, the characters have some SERIOUS powers to deal with.

 












Dear Reader, this may be a good time to think about your worst nightmare.  Is it one where you are being chased down a very steep hill by a million hungry white bunny rabbits and you are holding what appears to be the last carrot on earth?  Or am I the only one having that dream?
-- pg 16, Elliot and the Pixie Plot by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Oh seriously, I love this kid lit series!  It draws the reader in both with the story and the narrator actually addressing them, just like you see above.  Definitely receommend the first book (of which you can sample in my review) and I'm pretty sure this book will follow suit once completed.





 
 
 

 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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!
