BMR,Friday's MemeSince there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.

What’s your favorite non-bookish website hangout? – Suggested byCornerfolds

Well, this is a hard questions cause I don’t really hang out at any sites, I might browse but I don’t really have a go to non-bookish site….hmmmm. Well I guess I would have to go with Internet Movie Database as I like to check out the trailers from time to time and  it’s the only thing that comes to mind. 🙂

book beginnings memeBook Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.

Ashley Bell

THE MUST-READ THRILLER OF THE YEAR: Featuring the most exhilarating heroine in memory and a sophisticated, endlessly ingenious, brilliantly paced narrative through dark territory and deep mystery, this is a new milestone in literary suspense and a major new breakout book from the long acclaimed master.

At twenty-two, Bibi Blair’s doctors tell her that she’s dying. Two days later, she’s impossibly cured. Fierce, funny, dauntless, she becomes obsessed with the idea that she was spared because she is meant to save someone else. Someone named Ashley Bell. This proves to be a dangerous idea. Searching for Ashley Bell, ricocheting through a southern California landscape that proves strange and malevolent in the extreme, Bibi is plunged into a world of crime and conspiracy, following a trail of mysteries that become more sinister and tangled with every twisting turn.

Unprecedented in scope, infinite in heart, Ashley Bell is a magnificent achievement that will capture lovers of dark psychological suspense, literary thrillers, and modern classics of mystery and adventure. Beautifully written, at once lyrical and as fast as a bullet, here is the most irresistible novel of the decade.

Just started this one last night so I don’t have any thoughts on it yet, but it’s Dean Koontz so it has to be good right. 🙂

The year t hat Bibi Blair turned ten, which was twelve years before Death came calling on her, the sky was a grim vault of sorrow nearly every day from January through mid-March, and the angels cried down flood after flood upon Southern California. That was how she described it in her diary: a sorrowing sky, the days and nights washed by the grief of angels, though she didn’t speculate on the cause of the celestial distress.

Friday 56

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.

Before opening the three volumes that she had bought at the bookstore in Fashion Island, she sat at the motel-room table with a pen and the small spiral-bound notebook that she carried in her purse. Searching her memory, she tried to recapture and write down, as best she could recall, the pertinent things Coy had said. Ten minutes later, they were before her on the page, in neat script.

Since I haven’t read this I am not  totally sure what is going on here but I think she was interviewing a killer because it goes on to talk about a shooting.

book blogger hop

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.

Are you a blogger that only has reviews on your blog or do you feature giveaways and attention-attracting posts such as personal and bookish posts?

I keep telling myself I am going to do some more types of bookish post but then I never do. I need to try discussion questions but I am not good at coming up with questions that haven’t already been discussed a lot. I do some giveaways from time to time and some movie reviews which I need to do more off but that is about it.

  1. I do love how he paints pictures with words! One of my all time favorite authors. Almost finished with this book. And I’m looking forward to what you think of it, Stormi. A friend of mine hated it!
