Friday Meme’s ~ The Nature of the Beast
Since there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Hardly a day goes by when nine-year-old Laurent Lepage doesn’t cry wolf. From alien invasions, to walking trees, to winged beasts in the woods, to dinosaurs spotted in the village of Three Pines, his tales are so extraordinary no one can possibly believe him. But when the boy disappears, the villagers are faced with the possibility that one of his tall tales might have been true. And so begins a frantic search for the boy and the truth. What they uncover deep in the forest sets off a sequence of events that leads to murder, leads to an old crime, leads to an old betrayal. A monster once visited Three Pines. And put down deep roots. And now, it is back.
I just recently finished this one and really enjoyed it, after the last two books I was afraid this series was going to dive bomb, but it’s picking back up and Gamache seems a bit more himself in this one, thank goodness!
Running, running, stumbling, running.
Arm up against the wiry branche whipping his face. He didn’t see the root. He fell, hands splayed into the moss and mud.
Doesn’t sound like things are going well this person. 🙂
The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday Teaser but you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.
“A stick, patron?” Jean-Guy Beauvoir’s voice had grown shrill on the phone. “Oui,” said Gamache. He stood in his living room and looked out the window, past their front porch to the village green.
That stick is important! 🙂
So I took this from page 58 as I felt page 56 was to close to the murder and didn’t want to spoil what happened. 🙂 I took my teasers from a hardback library book.
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.
If you haven’t read a book in awhile and someone asks about a character or the plot, can you recall the details?
That might depend on how long ago I read it and how much I liked it…lol.
