Get A Taste: The Shadow Reader

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!

This week the numbers are:
page 52 for books
1% for ebooks

My book is:

I tear my gaze away from Kyol's shadow-trail. It's been months since we've seen each other but time hasn't dulled my reaction to him. My stomach does a little flip. He looks the same as he did the last time we were together, the same as he did when we agreed that things would be easier if we stayed in our own worlds. We were right. The way he keeps his expression carefully neutral makes my chest ache.

The boyfriend gifted me this book at the start of the week. When I finished Crossing Over (review to be posted March 10th) and my mum was still monopolising my Kindle, I decided to tackle this one next. I started it last night and I'm in the middle of chapter 2 right now. I can't say that I'm completely sold on the style yet. It seems a bit choppy to me. But I do like the idea so I'm hoping that the strength of the story is enough to help me overlook the problems with the style!

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!
