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 week...a fairytale of sorts that has a lot more spunk than your average Tink.  Ready for a taste?  Here we go!


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




Temp:  An Accidental Fairytale
by

Her mind sank into the familiar pages as she retreated into a tale of warlocks and distant lakes and ordinary closets that led to extraordinary places.  The story wrapped itself around her like a blanket, but then there was the ache of longing that always came hand in hand when she read a favorite tale.  She could pretend that she was somewhere else and someone else, but life was not for pretending.
-- pg 28


An interesting tale to say the least, thus far I am rather enjoying Bee's character as she tries to find a better direction and possibly uncovers some hidden talents of her own (wonder where they came from?).  Also, I gotta say that Gilda, her boss, is a hoot!  Unicorn obsessed and dresses like a teenage reject from a bad 80's film...a REALLY bad one; unfortunately for her, her fashion faux pas provide much laughter for all (which is fortunate for us!).  Can't wait to see how it turns out....



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




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!
