Get A Taste: Clarity

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 54 for books
21% for ebooks.

My book:

If there was anything Cecile Clayworth hated, it was a scene, and she avoided them at all costs. Any time Stephen got into trouble, Cecile dealt with it by pretending that it had never happened.
She took off her oversized Hollywood sunglasses and peered at the small crowd that had formed in response to Stephen's outburst. Her eyes said "move on." And they did.

Honestly, I'm not actually reading this book right now. Due to time constraints, I had to prepare the post a few days beforehand and Clarity just happened to be the closest book at hand at that time. I suppose I'd better get on and read it now!!

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!


  1. This taste was sweet. I want more. :-)

  2. I like this one too. You guys have some good book choices. I feel like I am in a book slump so this shall go on my TBR List! :o) I just wanted to let you know that I was unable to do it this week b/c life got crazy but I do have an INT Giveaway going on. See ya next week.
