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...an ARC I picked up randomly in the store that, well let's just say the hype I've heard about the author is well deserved. Ready for a taste? Here goes....
"It's a mark!" he exclaimed. "The mark of the undead!"
Actually it was the mark of the stupid, which is what you get for sitting under a tree during a thunderstorm.
-- pg 217, Chomp by Carl Hiaasen (ARC)
Hahahahahahahaha HA! ^_^
Yes, as soon as I read that line last night, I knew it HAD to be part of today's teaser. Though only a small part of what's really going on in the story, it goes to show that even in the most serious of situations, humor can be found....especially when dealing with a "survival expert" whose not really living up to either one of those terms. This book has been quite a surprise and my first venture into this author's work....doubtful that it will be the last.
This book was released just this past week from Alfred A. Knopf, an imprint of RandomHouse Kids.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
*Grab your current read
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (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 Lists if they like your teasers!
