Friday Meme’s ~ Children of Chicago
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.
This horrifying retelling of the Pied Piper fairytale set in present-day Chicago is an edge of your seat, chills up the spine, thrill ride. When Detective Lauren Medina sees the calling card at a murder scene in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood, she knows the Pied Piper has returned. When another teenager is brutally murdered at the same lagoon where her sister’s body was found floating years before, she is certain that the Pied Piper is not just back, he’s looking for payment he’s owed from her. Lauren’s torn between protecting the city she has sworn to keep safe, and keeping a promise she made long ago with her sister’s murderer. She may have to ruin her life by exposing her secrets and lies to stop the Pied Piper before he collects.
I just finished this one and though I mostly enjoyed it I am still digesting the ending to decide exactly how I feel about it. I would consider this a detective novel with supernatural horror elements. 🙂
“You’re going to get blood in your coffee, Detective.”
I think that is a pretty interesting start to a novel. 🙂
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.
“I need to know as soon as she can talk. It’s important,” she told him, but he questioned her when she said this. They did have their suspects in custody after all.
“Right, but what about motive?”
He laughed. “It’s Chicago, take your pick. There isn’t much to over analyze here.”
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.
Is reading a fixed part of your morning or evening routine?
Though I do read in the morning sometimes I do most of my reading in the evening before bed.
