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 are some of your favorite TV shows?
I love almost anything in the mystery and crime genre. Especially if it’s British…lol. I just binge watched The Doctor Blake Mysteries and OMG it was so good and I can’t wait for more to come. (Though I seen where they are wanting to cancel it but I hope someone else picks it up, like Netflix!). I am also watching The Father Brown Mysteries. I love NCIS, NCIS: NOLA, Bull, Lethal Weapon, etc. 🙂
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
They call us things with teeth. These words from Lily Rose Sullivan the night of her death haunts her seventeen-year-old sister, Finn, who has moved with her widowed father to his hometown of Fair Hollow, New York. After befriending a boy named Christie Hart and his best friend, Sylvie Whitethorn, Finn is invited to a lakeside party where she encounters the alluring Jack Fata, a member of the town’s mysterious Fata family. Despite Jack’s air of danger and his clever words, Finn learns they have things in common.
One day, while unpacking, Finn finds her sister’s journal, scrawled with descriptions of creatures that bear a sinister resemblance to Jack’s family. Finn dismisses these stories as fiction, but Jack’s family has a secret—the Fatas are the children of nothing and night, nomadic beings who have been preying on humanity for centuries—and Jack fears that his friendship with Finn has drawn the attention of the most dangerous members of his family—Reiko Fata and vicious Caliban, otherwise known as the white snake and the crooked dog.
Plagued with nightmares about her sister, Finn attempts to discover what happened to Lily Rose and begins to suspect that the Fatas are somehow tied to Lily Rose’s untimely death. Drawn to Jack, determined to solve the mystery of her sister’s suicide, Finn must navigate a dangerous world where nothing is as it seems.
Taking a step away from the cozy mysteries for this one as it’s a buddy read with Barb for Two bloggers, One Book.
They call us things with teeth, Finn’s sister had once said, in on of her moods and still wearing her ballerina costume as she huddled on the front porch. She hadn’t explained this disturbing statement to Finn. They had argued that night, the night eighteen-year old Lily Rose had ended her life.
Not sure about you but I am hooked already as I just started this one Thursday night after making this post. 🙂
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.
“Your friends are safe-they’re smart.” His hand folded over one of hers and tightened, but he didn’t look at her, watching the Fatas. “Don’t leave me.” His voice, hoarse and broken, made her throat hurt. There were rose petals in his tangled hair. His profile was cameo pale. She thought, What have they done to you-
Okay I am very curious to know what is going on!!! 🙂 What do you think?
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.
Would you stop reading a book if an element of the plot strongly clashed with your personal beliefs, or would you continue reading until you finished finished the book?
Yes, though it really has to be something that really really clashes. I mean I can try about anything but there are just some things I can’t abide by and will not finish if it offends my personal beliefs on a large scale. Mostly I can just say it’s a book but there are some I just can’t do. I am not a big fan of Angels in books, especially romances, that just doesn’t go well with me. If it bashes my religion to badly to the point of offending me I will quit, I can tolerate not everyone is religious but there is a breaking point for me. Not big on rape or cheating, things like that. I would hate for it to affect my rating and it probably would.
