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 title I've only the broken the spine on as of yesterday and I'm already invested greatly in the read.  Reminds me of Dead Poets Society in a way, hopefully not with as dire consequences, but we shall see.  Anywho, ready for a taste?  Here you go!

J.B. Hickman

The fear never entirely went out of him; he clung to it as a scared child clings to their parent's leg.  This overwhelming instinctive fear that we carried down the stairs eliminated anything in its path:  the shame and humiliation that might have otherwise been part of such an absurd situation; the guilt we collectively shared in bringing him up there.  We might laugh about it later, or beat ourselves up allowing it to happen, but at the time we were too concentrated on the task at hand.  And if our minds wandered, it only took one look at those unblinking fear-ridden eyes to bring us right back.
-- pg 52


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!
