Friday Meme’s ~ Storm Blown

June 7, 2019 Misc. 7

Since there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.

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

A major hurricane is raging across the southern United States, and two unsuspecting kids are about to have the adventure of a lifetime! Perfect for kids who love high-stakes plots and natural disaster movies, and anyone interested in extreme weather!

A little rain and wind don’t worry Alejo–they’re just part of life at the beach. As his padrino says, as long as there are birds in the waves, it’s safe. When people start evacuating, though, Alejo realizes things might be worse than he thought. And they are. A hurricane is headed straight for Puerto Rico.

Emily’s brother, Elliot, has been really sick. He can’t go outside their New Orleans home, so Emily decides to have an adventure for him. She’s on a secret mission to the tiny island Elliot loves. She’s not expecting to meet up with an injured goose or a shy turtle. And nothing has prepared her for Megastorm Valerie. Soon Alejo and Emily will be in Valerie’s deadly path. Who will survive?

I am not a fan of storms but reading about them is okay. 🙂

“Alejandro,” the old man shouted, his voice small in the rising wind. “Las sillas-the chairs, they’re blowing away!”

Well, sounds like the storm is already there, good beginning. 🙂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.

“My advice?” he said, unrolling the window to clear the fog. “Stay inside.”

Well, hmmm wonder what is happening.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 the oldest book (by Publication) have you read.

I would have to say that is probably Jane Eyre, I picked up a really old copy at a flea market once. I read it so very carefully and still have it. Here is a picture of it that I had on the computer. I am not sure what the actual pub date is (it’s downstairs) but I think it’s early 1900’s.

    I had a look on my Goodreads shelf and my 1988 copy Sourcery (Discworld #5) by Sir Terry Pratchett was the oldest but I was reading books before I discovered Goodreads 😉 and was forever picking up old books from my local charity shops – it’s where I found my little copy of A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that was published in the early 1900s, the 1970’s paperback copies of Dennis Wheatley’s The Devil Rides Out and my treasured 1930’s copy of Dion Fortune’s The Sea Priestess.

    However, I have also read a loved an number of William Shakespeare’s classics – A Midsummer Night’s Dream is probably my favourite and I’ve also read classic folk tales like Beowulf and The Mabinogion but the copies that I own are modern.

    I go back to Ancient Greece with Theogony by Hesiod. We had to study Latin in high school (I know, he’s a Greek author but we read it in Latin) so my oldest reading comes from that time. Have a nice week!!
