Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19

First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

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 that I'm both enjoying AND on the fence about.  The final verdict?  That remains to be seen....BUT there are many laughable moments and smile worthy scenes which of course warrant a share on this day of teasers!

The Very First Bite
Cynthia Langston

Instead of the wonder-pancakes, I decide to eat the rest of the tub of cottage cheese for breakfast.  There's a leftover chicken breast, which I can have for lunch with some salad, and maybe some lasagna for dinner - with zucchini strips instead of pasta.  This all sounds very healthy and delicious on the surface, but I'm telling you right now, I'd sell my left book on the black market for a blueberry muffin and a bowl of Cocoa Puffs.
-- pg 142-143

Now, to set the scene straight here....she's cycling through diets and has landed on the Atkins "all meat, no/low carb" plan that many have both had success AND failure with.  She's trying to stay on the bandwagon but needless to say, the carbs are calling.  Will she prevail or will she fall victim to their flour filled cries?  We shall see...just passed the halfway point in the book, so final verdict should be coming soon.  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!

Grief, all of that talk about pancakes, muffins and Cocoa Puffs is making me hungry.

Sounds like a fun read, thanks for mentioning it.

Juju: I know, right? Great combo. ^_^

Petty Witter: LOL. Time for a carb break, no?
