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 book that I've just cracked the spine on this morning that features time travel, consequence and danger. Curious? You should be, because even the cover is attention grabbing. You'll be seeing this one featured on the site in full next week via the Tribute Books blog tour, but in the mean time...here's a taste!
I step forward and look down...Into a whirlpool that could eat the Titanic for breakfast. But there's no water, only a swirling tube made of a million pulverized galaxies. Not that my eyes can really latch onto anything inside, except for the man. His crisp dark form shrinks into the faraway brightness.Is this where Dad goes when he drops in on someone? Is the clockwork dude his rival researcher?The sun brightens, and as it does, the hole starts to contract. Sharp edges of pavement eat into it, closing fast. I can't let him get away. Somehow we're all connected. Me, the mechanical man, Sophie, and Dad.I take a step forward and let myself fall.-- pg 11, Untimed by Andy Gavin
Okay, first of all....I know that was WAY more than two sentences, but when the passage was selected, I couldn't simply stop anywhere; it needed to be finished. What a finish too! I mean...who is that mechanical man? Who is stepping into a whirlpool of time? Where does it lead? Shall I continue because well, you know how I am with the questions....
So...what book are you lost in this week?
Oh come on...just a little tease?
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!
