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...a book I am steadily devouring with both interest, shock and awe all fleeting across my face at any given moment.  Curious?  If you're an older teen or beyond then it's fair game for you (in my opinion) let's take a taste shall we?

 Laurie Plissner

Snow floated silently past the windows, like feathers from some extraterrestrial pillow fight.  Helen's attic was a cozy refuge from the real world, and Grace and Charlie treated it like a secret clubhouse, sprawling at either end of an enormous and ancient leather sofa.  They talked, read, and listened to music, their feet meeting under an antique, moth-eaten striped wool Pendleton blanket.  It was heaven, and Grace wished they could stay up there forever.
-- pg 185

Now don't be fooled by the supposed beauty and majesty of the scene laid before you. While the writing is at times eloquent, the story is much more "real life" than all of that and the troubles that Grace is dealing with are hardcore in both issue and general reaction from others.  In two words...teen pregnancy; but it'll take many more than that when review time comes I'm sure.  Stay tuned...

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!

Oh wow. I would love to have a hideaway like that. But sounds like maybe a hard life in the real world. Thanks for sharing.

What a great share, this really does sound like the best sleep-over of all times. In a way its a shame the book is overall much more real life like.

I can relate to that feeling. That never wanting something to end. Great teaser.

I'd love to have a hide-away like that! Great passage, but sounds like an intense book.
