Friday Meme’s: The Witch Hunter

Posted June 19, 2015 by Stormi in Memes / 42 Comments

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 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.

The Witch Hunter

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.

Chapter one

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. πŸ™‚

Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday Β Teaser but Β you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) toΒ 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

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Β 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.

  1. I think I’d like this one and it’s a new author for me too! Sorry I haven’t been around this week. Tooth was such a pain! Feeling better today and trying to visit again:)
    Have an awesome weekend, Stormi!

    • Stormi

      New author for me too but I really enjoy it. πŸ™‚ Sorry to hear that your tooth is still bothering you..totally understand not stopping by. When I am in pain I don’t want to get on the computer much.

  2. Stormi, thanks for stopping by my blog, it’s much appreciated πŸ™‚

    I’ve got Witch Hunter in my TBR, but your Book Beginnings has definitely made me more impatient about reading it.

    You are so lucky you have a co-blogger, it makes blogging so much easier and that’s awesome that you two can post that many reviews weekly, I’d be lucky to get 2 reviews posted per week but I’m trying to be more organised and schedule some and maybe even have extra reviews for my quiet weeks.

    Have a great weekend!

    This one sounds pretty good. The one thing I never understood about any sort of witch trials is…if the witches are so powerful, how are they caught so easily and killed? Thanks for visiting my blog!

    • Stormi

      Well, these witch hunters are hard to kill making it harder for them witches to get away…lol. πŸ˜‰

  4. I’m not really a tattoo person either. There’s just no design I love enough to have actually inked onto me. Plus it seems like it would hurt and it’s expensive! The Witch Hunter sounds really good I’m hoping to get a little out of my usual genres this fall as I’m lucky to be reading at all this summer!

  5. I agree about the way publishers choose to hype books by comparing to other books or authors. I sometimes can see one element of a style or storyline, but I think it’s just to get the readers who jump on bandwagons in their book selection process.

    • Stormi

      I have never read Game of Thones but I just can’t picture this book being anything like it..lol..it was still a good book though! πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Oh, well I seen some of the reviews and I was like really..hmm I liked it. I read one where the lady dnfed it after the MC cried she wasn’t a witch cause she had herbs..I was like..well she wasn’t..lol. I would cry foul too! πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy it if you pick it up! πŸ™‚

  6. Do you think the book is really as exciting as Graceling and Game of Thrones? I think publishers always hope they’ll make it true by saying it.

    • Stormi

      Well, I have read those two books but I don’t think it is anything like those, especially Game of Thrones I think that was a real big stretch….lol. I still enjoyed it though. πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Yeah, I loved the beginning and I just couldn’t leave it with one line had to do the paragraph..lol.

  7. Oh, that opening with the witch burning is scary. Burning alive terrifies me. I’d have to skip that part.

    I’m with you on the hype and book comparisons, they usually turn me off.

    I hope the book is good and not too intense.

    • Stormi

      It’s not in the book much, so basically that first part there you would need to skip..lol. πŸ™‚ I enjoyed this book thought, I thought it was really good.

    • Stormi

      This one I really enjoyed and was more about one witch hunters quest for the truth in the things around her. πŸ™‚

  8. I couldn’t get a tattoo either. I’d get on and then I’d hate it after a week and need to get it removed. ha! Yeah, I’ll just pass.
    Have a great week Stormi!
