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.
Ground Hog Day! What book or scene could you live in and have it on repeat?
Wow, this is really hard because a scene is not just standing out to me right at this minute.
Some of the lively banter in my current read that is mentioned below might be fun. It might be fun to be Veronica having a verbal joust with Stoker….lol. Might be fun on repeat…lol
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
I know I teased it on Tuesday but I love this book so I am doing it again…lol. I am still reading it but not cause it’s dull but because I am not getting any good undistracted reading time.
Veronica Speedwell returns in a brand new adventure from Deanna Raybourn, the New York Times
bestselling author of the Lady Julia Grey mysteries…
London, 1887 . . Victorian adventuress and butterfly hunter Veronica Speedwell receives an invitation to visit the Curiosity Club, a ladies-only establishment for daring and intrepid women. There she meets the mysterious Lady Sundridge, who begs her to take on an impossible task saving society art patron Miles Ramsforth from execution. Accused of the brutal murder of his artist mistress Artemisia, Ramsforth will face the hangman’s noose in a week s time if Veronica cannot find the real killer.
But Lady Sundridge is not all that she seems and unmasking her true identity is only the first of the many secrets Veronica must uncover. Together with her natural historian colleague Stoker, Veronica races against time to find the true murderer a ruthless villain who not only took Artemisia s life in cold blood but is happy to see Ramsforth hang for the crime.
From a Bohemian artists colony to a royal palace to a subterranean grotto with a decadent history, the investigation proves to be a very perilous undertaking indeed….
Isn’t that such an amazing cover!! 🙂 It’s a fun series too!
“For the love of all that is holy, Veronica, the object is to maim or kill, not tickle, Stoker informed me, clipping the words sharply as he handed me a knife. “Do it again.”
Is that not just the best beginning! I knew right there this was going to be another fun one!
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 smiled at the nod to Keats and tucked my hand into the crook of his elbow as we made out way to the drive where the carriage waited. “Stoker, do you remember our conversation upon the subject of physical congress?” “With painful clarity,” he said, not meeting my eyes.
Veronica and Stoker’s banter just cracks me up!!! She isn’t afraid to say anything and at times makes him blush…lol. If you like historical mysteries you really need to try this series! 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.
Read or Clean? Read or Bake? Read or Make Dinner? What would be your choice?
Um, read, read, and read. 🙂 I guess I do read while doing those things cause I listen to audios when I clean or cook. 🙂
