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...a book that is surprising me in many ways and reminds me of a classic many of you may have read. Ready for a taste? Here we go....
It may seem obvious to you that my brother Force was not an Arabian prince switched at birth, and that Miss Spivey had indeed made up a story, possibly one that she did not expect me to believe any more or less than I believed in Alaeddin and his lamp. I was eleven, after all, old enough to know better.
-- pg 75, The Cailiffs of Baghdad, Georgia by Mary Helen Stefaniak
If that voice sounds strong for an eleven year old, you're right...it does...but does it not also evoke that classic work of fiction that works its way on the scene during Banned Books Week (as well as many other times throughout the year)? You know the one...initials TKAMB? Another romp through Southern literature, thus far...I'm enjoying it immensely.
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.*
