August 21, 2015 Memes 14

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.

featurefollowFeature and Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.

If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would you pick? Fictional ones count too! – Suggested byBook Cat Pin

dragonIn the fictional world I think I would love to have a dragon! I mean who wouldn’t want to have a pet dragon you could ride on and I am sure nobody would ever give you any type of trouble…lol.

pygmy_elephants_hmed10a.grid-6x2In the real world I would like a pygmy elephant they are smaller than the other elephants, though I would love it if I could just keep it in baby size..they are so cute…lol. I think elephants are so cute especially when they are small.

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

I just finished this book last night and thought it took a while to get into it and the MC wasn’t a favorite I did find it interesting but a bit slow till about 60% in.

The Creeping

Twelve years ago Stella and Jeanie vanished while picking strawberries. Stella returned minutes later, with no memory of what happened. Jeanie was never seen or heard from again.

Now Stella is seventeen, and she’s over it. She’s the lucky one who survived, and sure, the case is still cloaked in mystery—and it’s her small town’s ugly legacy—but Stella is focused on the coming summer. She’s got a great best friend, a hookup with an irresistibly crooked smile, and two months of beach days stretching out before her.

Then along comes a corpse, a little girl who washes up in an ancient cemetery after a mudslide, and who has red hair just like Jeanie did. Suddenly memories of that haunting day begin to return, and when Stella discovers that other red-headed girls have gone missing as well, she begins to suspect that something sinister is at work.

And before the summer ends, Stella will learn the hard way that if you hunt for monsters, you will find them.

I’m the lucky one; or at least that’s what they say. I’m here to squint up at the Independence Day fireworks under an orangehued moon; to fidget in the violet organza of my junior prom dress; to toast under the midwestern sun while sipping peach fizzies lakeside. But sometimes the luck is harder to see.

Sound a bit depressing. Though reading the blurb we know that she is lucky because she came out of the woods while her friend did not.

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.

We sprint through the gravel lot and rush inside the station wagon. I wipe the steam from the window and squint out to where the other two cars were parked. They’re gone.

“W-who would do something like that?” Zoey stammers. Sam fumbles with the buttons on his cell, fingertips slippery and blue. I cross my arms over my face and close my eyes. I try to take refuge in the blackness, but the image of the cat’s rolling head is burned on the insides of my eyelids.

This is from 56% of the eARC on my kindle fire. They just found a dead cat in a circle in the cemetery. So far that is the creepiest thing that has happened so far! I was hoping for creepier and it’s been a little slow but maybe it’s going to start to get interesting…lol.

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.

When you read a book that isn’t for review, do you still feel the need to write a review of it?

I don’t feel like I need to review it, but I review it because that is how I started my blog. I started reading my own books that I had or library books before I started getting books to review. I review cause I like talking about books no matter if they are for fun or review. 🙂

    This one sounds seriously creepy! I do hope you review it because I’m really curious about it. I love the pygmy elephants! We saw a baby rhinoceros one time and my husband has since sworn that if he could have any pet in the world that’s what he would get. I have enough trouble cleaning up after the dog so I think I’m good!

    Sounds good but I am not sure if it would scare me or not. I scare easily.

    Any pet ever, I am like you a dragon of course!

  3. Sandra Nachlinger

    Sounds like a good story, but definitely creepy. I like the cover and the book’s opening. Both of them tell the reader that the story isn’t going to be light and fluffy!
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

    Both great choices! Dragons are so popular right now & very badass! But I do love me some baby elephants, OMG they are so adorable!! For myself, I chose a giraffe because I’ve been obsessed with them for over 20 years! To have a permanent sized baby giraffe would be incredible but I’m not picky so I’d take a full grown one too, I’ll just build a new house to outfit my new pet Lol

    To answer your question, fictional character, Pegasus. I love horses and have two, but to have one that could fly would be awesome. Real one that I can’t have, probably an entire zoo. There are just too many to pick. I love so many different kinds of animals.

    For the last question, I do sometimes review books that I pick up at the library or purchase myself. It just depends if the book is calling out to me to be reviewed. I don’t force myself to review it. If I have a story to tell or share, I will write the review. If it is a book that all my friends are reviewing, then I can talk about it with them in their comments and that is enough for me. If it is a book that I haven’t seen on any of my friends’ blogs and I want to tell them about it, then I will be sure to review it to share the story and hopefully someone else will love the book as much as I did.

    Great topics.

    Someone posted a video of a wombat on Facebook one day and it was the cutest thing-I wanted one immediately. So sweet. I also saw the cutest video of a baby elephant taking a bath and it was really sweet too-but they do grow up! As far as reviewing books that you don’t have to review-I review for two different sites-two a week for one site,RabidReads, and as many as I want to for PureTextuality-so yes I review most of what I read-but definitely not all. Depends on what it was and how good it was 🙂
