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 couldn't be more different from each other...whoa, wait a second. Deja vu. *looks at last week's post* Yep. Same sentence and yet it holds true. One is lingering from last week (and coming through on a blog tour tomorrow) but will be finished today. The other is a hefty little self-published title that falls more in line with the YA side of life. Ready for a taste? Here goes.
As selected by SuziQoregon (a great Twitter tweep you should check out after you finish this post..^_^), here are your bookish teasers...
I had been reading to the blind and visually impaired, as a good deed, for over a year, and it had come to my attention that even the blind and visually impaired might be bored to near-death or coma by one hour filled with nothing but grocery prices and/or obituaries. So, during the three-minute break we were entitled to take at the half hour, I would normally bring in something "funny" from the newspaper.

So, this is one of the lighter moments in the book where the author takes her trademark inward facing snark and shares it with the reading world. It's a kind gesture for both the old folks in the story as well as readers seeing as how they are faced with circulars and we are faced with political anecdotes otherwise. This reading journey has been "interesting"...stay tuned as the blog tour swings by tomorrow with a review and your chance to check things out for yourself.
I couldn't even pinpoint the exact moment when I had decided to tell him so many details, but the words just kept pouring our before I could stop them. Phillip's own life was an open book around the office, and there were never any secrets as to what was going on in his personal life after work.

Ooh..now there's a tease loaded with innuendo...I mean can't you just see the narrator raises her eyebrows at the end of the second sentence? I can...okay so since I've gotten to know her character (one Abigail Richards) as I've read, it might make the visual more clear, but trust me....there's either facial ticks or finger quotes going on during this one. Curious who this Phillip is though as I've yet to encounter him...and where's Nick? *curious*
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.*
