Friday Meme’s ~Optical Delusions
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.
OPEN YOUR EYES WITH “X-RAY” VISION!
Put on a pair of “X-Ray” glasses and things will never look the same! These almost magical specs will make you the hit of the party! Astonishing three-dimensional X-Ray visions of what your friends—and girls—look like under their clothes! And all for just $1.
THE MORE YOU WEAR THEM . . .
Martin Blackstone punishes his son for wasting his allowance on a pair of flimsy cardboard sunglasses X-ray vision . . . yeah, right. Martin tries them on just for the hell of it—and all they do is give him a headache . . .
. . . THE DEEPER YOU’LL SEE.
Until he sees things he can’t possibly be seeing. Glimpses of things on the other side of a wall or beneath someone’s clothing. He wants to believe it’s just his overactive imagination but the “X-Ray” specs actually work. Then the fun novelty becomes a waking nightmare when the glasses burn into his face and he starts seeing horrifying apocalyptic visions no mortal man was ever meant to see. Images that alter his very personality—from a husband and father to a bloodthirsty homicidal maniac . . .
Because sometimes you can see too much..
I know it’s kind of a gross cover and won’t appeal to everyone but I am gearing up for spooky time and in the mood for horror. 🙂
If there was one thing Martin Blackstone truly hated, it was being disturbed during the two hours he allowed himself a night to watch television.
I am not a huge fan of Martin and I think the author meant it to be that way.
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 tiny patch of skin stuck to the arm of the glasses. He angled the rearview mirror down to inspect his head. Right next to his ear was a blood-red circle. When he touched it with a fingertip, a bolt of pain went from one side of his head to the other.
Sounds like something is going very wrong with those glasses. 🙂
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.
Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?
Yes, I do but I think next year I am just going to participate in the ones I host and maybe some of ones that are only a month long. Getting challenge burnout.
