Taste Testing Tuesdays...on a Wednesday!



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...the soon to be published sequel to an AWESOME-TASTIC Children's Fiction book that you HAVE to read.  No really...it's THAT good!  Here's a taste of my read in progress....


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



The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland
and Led the Revels There
by
(ARC)


The Duke held his hand to his mouth as though he meant to blow a kiss, and blow he did, but instead of kisses, indigo and holly colored tea leaves spun up from his palm, dancing through the air toward September's cup.  The Vicereine made an outraged noise and snapped her fingers  Out of her hand whirled flaming rose - and tangerine-colored coffee beans, which ground themselves to powder in midair and outraced the tea to hover over the little cup, scorching the blue leaves as it shot by them.
-- pg 73



September thought this a sad, rotten thing to say.  She remembered the awful sawing that cut her own shadow from her, and she might have dwelt on that terrible pain and what it cost her, had not the Revelers struck up their singing and laughing and talking and dancing once more.  They shouted and whooped even louder than before, dancing as if to erase the memory of the Alleyman and his great dark wheels.
-- pg118




"A book is a door, you know.  Always and forever.  A book is a door to another place and another heart and another world...."
-- pg 144





Sorry for the number of teasers; I simply couldn't decide!
Think Alice in Wonderland combined with Peter Pan and....okay, so you're not even close as this is definitely an original, creative, imagination filled series but you'll at least have some semblance of the fun that your in store for.  This is a series great for kids of all ages and I do mean ALL ages because the word play and tongue twisters employed while fun will definitely give you a run for your money.  Guess it's never too early to start the little ones training for the SAT's!  ^_^  Release date scheduled for October 2, 2012....review to come!



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





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!

I, too, am guilty of having the first book still waiting to be read. But I also received this ARC so I seriously need to get started on it. It's quite shameful of me, I know!

Thanks for stopping by Book Cover Justice!

Great teasers, I especially loved that third one.

GMR said...

Tiffany Drew: Oh my...another that needs to start the adventure. Don't worry...it'll be even better with BOTh titles available... ^_^

Petty Witter: I thought you might. ^_^

Wow. How awesome is that last quote? Wow.

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Oh now those are some excellent teasers. I like the imagery of the blowing of the leaves and flaming rose. Then to hear about her shadow being sawed from her. And that about a book! So true! Great teasers.
