Friday Meme’s ~ In Your Shoes
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 is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Miles is an anxious boy who loves his family’s bowling center even if though he could be killed by a bolt of lightning or a wild animal that escaped from the Philadelphia Zoo on the way there.
Amy is the new girl at school who wishes she didn’t have to live above her uncle’s funeral home and tries to write her way to her own happily-ever-after.
Then Miles and Amy meet in the most unexpected way . . . and that’s when it all begins. . . .
Not my ordinary genre but it’s been okay.
Miles Spagoski jogged the four blocks to his family’s bowling center, shivering and imagining ways he might die-a frozen tree limb could crack off and land on his head, a distracted driver fiddling with a car’s heating controls could swerve onto the sidewalk and plow him flat, or, if he was outside long enough, plain old hypothermia could be the end of his short, sad story.
One very long sentence! Anyway, Miles is a bit of a worry wort who has a fascination with weird ways of dying.
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.
“Phew, That was close.” Miles put his head on the counter.
“Phew what?” His grandfather took a swig from his glass. “What was close? How much did you hustle those guys for?”
Miles sat tall. “They tried to hustle me, Pop. Put up twenty bucks each.”
Miles, is very good at bowling and he has been hustling others to get money to pay for his Pop’s birthday present and almost got hustled so it was kind of funny. Dose of his own medicine.
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.
Do you sneak a peek at the number of views your posts have gotten?
I so look now and then but I don’t dwell on the number and just have fun with my blog.
