Taste Testing Tuesdays

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 ebook that'll be making the blog rounds via tour in a few days and a high flying sci-fi adventure that I'm still trying to make heads or tails out of.  Ready for a taste?  Here we go!
Our last scene arrives and breaks me more than it ever has.  I feel the end, and I know how it has to end, this weird flirtation thing we've had going on.  It ends with the last show of 'Romeo and Juliet'.  And for the first time I sort of get why Juliet had the courage to do it.  The pain of the dagger is a lot less than the pain of losing Romeo.
-- pg 168, Knee Deep by Jolene Perry (ebook)
Powerful, right?  This one is flying by...and its not often that ebooks do for me anyway.  You can easily get caught up in the story and the emotional connection to the characters is RIGHT there, for better or worse.  Stay tuned for the blog tour coming through in a few days time via Tribute Books!
Star-Knight points toward the broken screen.  "A hole.  An opening that needed to be closed a certain way.  It's why I could act, when others couldn't.  Because I know, you can always do the right thing, the direct thing, especially if you have a few prophets about."
-- pg 146, A Once Crowded Sky by Tom King (ARC)
See?  Confused.  It has its moments and the inclusion of comic panels with the text is certainly a nice touch, but right now I'm not totally convinced on this one.  It's still fairly early in the book for me though, so we shall see what becomes of it.  Anyone else read this one yet?

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!

Until next time....happy reading!

Looking forward to hearing more of your thoughts on A Once Crowded Sky.

Juju at Tales of said...

I love the first one. Poetic and dramatic.

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Wow, that girl in Knee Deep is really bummed. So sad. Thank you for both the teasers today!

V (BookBorne) said...

I can't decide if I absolutely love that first one or if I think she's being over the top dramatic... either way, great teasers!

GMR said...

Petty Witter: It should be interesting!

Juju: Agreed! Just like the story...

Melissa; With good reason! You'll is coming this week....

V (BookBorne): Dramatic yes, but only just. ^_^

Tribute Books said...

Gina, thanks a million for featuring "Knee Deep" in your Taste Testing Tuesday post. Glad the ebook reading is flying by for you, and as always we're looking forward to your review/tour stop.

You always pick such great passages to highlight, by the way :)

Great choices! I'm not sure about the second one either. It could honestly go either way and this is the first time I've heard about it. I'll be interested to see what you think. :)

GMR said...

Tribute Books: My pleasure! It was a great read...and this passage just begged to be shared.

The1stdaughter: too. ^_^
