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 book I've been struggling my way through sadly enough.  Ever have one of those reads where you want to immerse yourself fully in the story, you want to be swept away by it all...but for some reason or another, it's slow in coming?  Yeah.  I'm so there right now.  Alas, I will not call it quits because I just know there is something bound to happen that will reel me back in.  In the mean time, a tease for you from me....

An Uncommon Education
Elizabeth Percer

The meal was a kaleidoscope of structural and sensual details, rounded out by the natural, deep colors of raw foods beautifully displayed.  At the end of the meal, though, several pies emerged with a flourish.  The party clapped and laughed, and I was asked to make the first incision.
-- pg 255

Beautifully written...yes.
Unusually phrased...not to those reading the book.
The incision bit is referring to Naomi (assumedly since I haven't reached this point...yet) and her major in medicine.  Matters of the heart will be her focus in life, though little does she know that both forms of this "study" will affect her many times over.  See, I AM getting something out of the read, just not what I had hoped thus far.  We'll see.  I still have about 150 pages to go.

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!

Here's hoping its worth persevering with ..... like yourself once I have started a book I have to see it through to the bitter end.

Petty Witter:'s hoping it's less bitter and more sweet.
