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.
If you were to get a tattoo, what would it say or what would the graphic be? Or if you have a tattoo, share a picture and its meaning. – Suggested bySecond Run Reviews
Well, I am pretty sure this will never ever happen as I just don’t believe in getting tattoos, but if I did it would probably be bookish in nature. Maybe a book with the words I read, I breathe or live to read or something like that..lol. Maybe a bookworm with those cute little glasses.
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
The magic and suspense of Graceling meet the political intrigue and unrest of Game of Thrones in this riveting fantasy debut.
Your greatest enemy isn’t what you fight, but what you fear.
Elizabeth Grey is one of the king’s best witch hunters, devoted to rooting out witchcraft and doling out justice. But when she’s accused of being a witch herself, Elizabeth is arrested and sentenced to burn at the stake.
Salvation comes from a man she thought was her enemy. Nicholas Perevil, the most powerful and dangerous wizard in the kingdom, offers her a deal: he will save her from execution if she can break the deadly curse that’s been laid upon him.
But Nicholas and his followers know nothing of Elizabeth’s witch hunting past–if they find out, the stake will be the least of her worries. And as she’s thrust into the magical world of witches, ghosts, pirates, and one all-too-handsome healer, Elizabeth is forced to redefine her ideas of right and wrong, of friends and enemies, and of love and hate.
Virginia Boecker weaves a riveting tale of magic, betrayal, and sacrifice in this unforgettable fantasy debut.
I stand at the edge of the crowded square, watching the executioners light the pyres. The Two men, dressed for work in dark red cloaks and charred leather gloves, circle the narrow wooden platform, their lit torches held high. At the top of each, four witches and three wizards stand chained to a stake, bundles of wood heaped around their feet. They stare into the crowd, determined looks on their faces.
I am almost done with this book and while I haven’t read Graceling or Game of Thrones I think the publishers are hyping it up a little to much with the Game of Thrones thing…lol. I don’t like when they mention really popular books as it always backfires.
I am enjoying this book and curious to see how it ends, but it’s been interesting so far. Has a very intriguing beginning. 🙂
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 laugh, then remember the book he was reading the night he fell asleep in my room. “You’re and alchemist, too?”
“Not quite,” he says. “I thought of studying it at university next year, though.”
“Where?” Alchemy is far too close to magic for that to be allowed in Anglia.
“Uh, probably Iberia. Or maybe Umbria. I don’t know. I haven’t decided yet.”
Nothing extreme going on here at 56% as they are just looking around in a room and talking about things.
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.
How many posts do you publisher per week? And how many of them are reviews?
It really depends on the week and how I am feeling. I have another person who post reviews on my blog and she normally post three reviews a week and some times I post about two or three a week along with some memes. So I would say at least 7-12 with at least 5 if not more being reviews.
