Since there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.
Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.
What protagonist is more like you?
First one to pop into my head is Jill from the Tourist Trap Mysteries by Lynn Cahoon. She has one of my dream jobs to own my own coffeeshop/bookstore. She loves to read mysteries. I just don’t have the hunky cop boyfriend.
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Alice’s house stands at a gateway between worlds. Now something has awoken on the other side – and she’s in its way…
378 Collarmill Road looks like an ordinary house. But sometimes, the world outside the windows isn’t the one you expect to see. And sometimes you’ll turn around and find you’re not alone.
The suburb of Crawbeck, on a hill outside the English city of Manchester, overlooks the woodlands of Browton Vale. Alice Collier was happy here, once, but following the end of her marriage and loss of her daughter, she’s come back to pick up the threads of her life.
John Revell, an old flame of Alice’s, reluctantly comes to her aid when the house begins to reveal its secrets. The hill on which it sits is a place of legends – of Old Harry, the Beast of Crawbeck, of the Virgin of the Height and of the mysterious Red Man – and home to the secrets of the shadowy Arodias Thorne.
And now Alice and John stand between him and rest of our world…
This one is next up on my list to read once I get done with Stalked, I haven’t had much reading time this week. 🙁
Higher Crawbeck, Salford, 16th October 2016
They drove out of Manchester across the River Irwell into Salford, where Collarmill Road began sloping uphill in a long straight line, all the way of Crawbeck. [/su_note]
Dad drove. Mum sat between Alice and him; Alice looked out of the window as tinned-up council houses and bleak low-and high-rise flats swished past.[/su_note]
Well, that is not an exciting opening…lol.
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.
The woman smiled, pointed with her free hand.”The windows,” she said. “They show scenes from the life of St. Thomas. Only to be expected, of course, in a church named after him. Hm?
Not real riveting but I am still curious.
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.
What is your favorite holiday beverage to drink while you’re reading?
It’s more of a winter drink that holiday, but I like hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows. 🙂
