Taste Testing Tuesdays (76)

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 deliciously fun book with so much quotability, you can't even shake a LARGE stick at it.  Seriously, it's that much fun.  Ready for a taste?  Here goes....

The Leopard of Little Breezes yawned up and further off from the rooftops of Omaha, Nebraska, to which September did not even wave good-bye.  One ought not to judge her:  All children are heartless.  They have not grown a heart yet, which is why they can climb tall trees and say shocking things and leap so very high that grown-up hearts flutter in terror.  Hearts weigh quite a lot.  That is why it takes so long to grow one.  But, as in their reading and arithmetic and drawing, different children proceed at different speeds.  (It is well known that reading quickens the growth of a heart like nothing else.)
-- pg 4, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente (ARC)

Long quote, I know....but so worth it, don't you think?
Seriously though this is one fantastical adventure that I am enjoying every twist encountered at the turn of the page.


Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
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.* 


Until next time....happy reading!
