Friday Meme’s ~ Little Heaven

December 30, 2016 Memes 11

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.

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.

What Blurbs Do You Feel are Wrong Or Misleading?
Of the top of my head I can’t really think of anything. I do hate really long blurbs.
Oh I just thought of something, on Dead and Kicking by Lisa Emme it says she bumps heads with a vampire, but he is a werewolf. Yes, there is a vampire in it but the blurb leads me to believe the guy she gets involved with is a vampire and he is not, so that confused me.

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

An all-new epic tale of terror and redemption set in the hinterlands of midcentury New Mexico from the acclaimed author of The Troop—which Stephen King raved “scared the hell out of me and I couldn’t put it down…old-school horror at its best.”

From electrifying horror author Nick Cutter comes a haunting new novel, reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian and Stephen King’s It, in which a trio of mismatched mercenaries is hired by a young woman for a deceptively simple task: check in on her nephew, who may have been taken against his will to a remote New Mexico backwoods settlement called Little Heaven. Shortly after they arrive, things begin to turn ominous. Stirrings in the woods and over the treetops—the brooding shape of a monolith known as the Black Rock casts its terrible pall. Paranoia and distrust grips the settlement. The escape routes are gradually cut off as events spiral towards madness. Hell—or the closest thing to it—invades Little Heaven. The remaining occupants are forced to take a stand and fight back, but whatever has cast its dark eye on Little Heaven is now marshaling its powers…and it wants them all.

This is one of my January reads and I sure hope it’s a good one!! 🙂

There is an old saying that goes: Evil never dies; it merely sleeps. And when that evil awakes, it does so soundlessly-or almost so.

Now that is a cool intro! 🙂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.

“Come on, Charlie,” Micah said.

Charlie wouldn’t get up this time. Micah had to haul Charlie across the ground. Charlie’s fingers tightened and cut off Micah’s circulation.

Not sure what is happening but I don’t think it’s good!! Can’t wait to start reading this one to find out!

book blogger hop

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.

Your New Year’s Resolution is to read a classic novel that you have never read before. What book will it be?

Always wanted to try this one so I would pick it. 🙂

    I’m reading Woman in White right now! I’m planning on finishing it today or tomorrow and it’s so good though I can only read it a little bit. I hope you love it! I hate when a blurb is misleading! I’ve had a few blurbs and covers that seem to say a book will be one way and then it ends up going a completely different direction and it’s always so confusing.

    I haven’t seen any blurbs that were blatantly misleading, but the one for a book I read recently was only a sentence long “because they didn’t want to give anything away.” It turned out that there wasn’t much of a twist, so it seemed like hype more than truth. Nothing like a vampire-werewolf switch, though.

    You have to wonder when mistakes like the one you mention are made in the blurb of a book. I read a book recently in which the blurb goes into what happens in the second half of the novel, but ignores the first half. Very misleading. Luckily it didn’t hurt my enjoyment of the book, but it might have given it wasn’t quite what I was expecting.

    I hope you will decide to read The Woman in White! I loved it.

    Have a wonderful New Year, Stormi!
