Get A Taste: Paraglide

Tara of Basically Books and I often read very different books but sometimes find interesting new books to potentially add to the ever-growing monsters that our TBR piles have morphed into. However, we know that we do not have 100% the same taste and we wanted another way of getting a look at these books...

Do you ever feel like getting a bit of a taster for a book you’ve been thinking of reading but aren’t fully sold on yet? Do you feel like sharing a taster for your current read with the world? Well, here’s your chance.

Each week the random number generator will pick a number between 1 and 100 for books with pages or 1 and 25% for ebooks. We figured that these numbers would keep us out of spoiler territory. Open your book to the specified place and pick a paragraph. Share it with the world!

The numbers for this week are:
Page 7 for books
16% for ebooks

My book:

"No!" said Lionel, crossing his arms over his chest. "No police. We don't want to get the bobbies involved. They're ill-equipped to handle this kind of thing. It would only increase the risk for Genevieve. And I definitely wouldn't go to the embassy. I hate to say this, but it's possible they're involved somehow. Not everyone in the Agency agreed with everything Edward did. I don't think he had any real enemies but we can't be certain."
Peter Anthony Kelley very graciously provided me with a review copy of his book. I was sold as soon as I read "the Alps". Even though it's set in the Swiss Alps and not the French Alps, the Alps are still home and I always enjoy reading about them! So far, this book reminds me of Percy Jackson minus the supernatural entities. I think it will appeal to teens who like adventure stories, but full review to come once I've finished it!

Do you want to join in too? Here’s how:
Step 1: Copy and paste the Get A Taste image.
Step 2: Copy and paste our intro or write your own but it must link back to both of our blogs.
Step 3: Find the designated page for the week.
Step 4: Type out a paragraph or so from your book.
Step 5: Post it and share it!
We would appreciate it if you'd leave a comment letting us know where we can find your post. We'll be sure to pop on by and leave a comment!
Thanks and have fun!

  3. @emaginette I post this every Thursday! Usually at the end of my (Western) European day so probably around the middle of the day on the other side of the pond.

  4. @Sisters Unedited Thank you! I'm gonna go read your post now!
