Get A Taste: Voyage on the Great Titanic

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 28 for books

18% for ebooks

My book:

I was able to choke out his name, and William must have been crying, too because he blinked a good deal and his voice was thick. He wrapped his arms around me, told me I was his best girl, and promised to come back as soon as he could to take proper care of me. Then, as the sky faded from black to grey, he handed me a piece of toffee wrapped in sticky paper.
"Make it last until the ladies come outside," he said.

Unfortunately I have had next to no time for reading so far this week. Sad face. I want to have this book read and reviewed by Saturday... I hope I manage to fit that time frame!! It's one that I bought as a child and I've read it before but that was over ten years ago. It was high time for a reread and with it being the centennial, it seemed the perfect occasion. It's a book written for a younger audience, which means it tends to be more straight to the point than I prefer, but I think it's perfect for the audience it's aimed at.

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!
