November 20, 2015 Memes 29

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.

If you could teleport into ANY story, which would you chose? – Suggested byLife Is Reading

Okay so I wouldn’t mind being in the era of Jane Austen’s books as long as I had money and could meet someone like Captain Wentworth, Mr. Darcy or Mr. Knightley. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now you know my top three favorite novels of Austen. ย Or I wouldn’t mind checking out Debbie Macomer’s Cedar Cove if I could find a Jack or Cliff or even a Bob he had his wife have been married a long time. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pop Goes the Weasel

A manโ€™s body is found in an empty house.
A gruesome memento of his murder is sent to his wife and children.

He is the first victim, and Detective Helen Grace knows he will not be the last. But why would a happily married man be this far from home in the dead of night?

The media call it Jack the Ripper in reverse: a serial killer preying on family men who lead hidden double lives.

Helen can sense the fury behind the murders. But what she cannot possibly predict is how volatile this killer isโ€”or what is waiting for her at the end of the chase…

 

Going to be starting this one today and I can’t wait. I really enjoyed the first book in the series!

The Fog crept in from the sea, suffocating the city. It descended like a invading army, consuming landmarks, choking out the moonlight, rendering Southhampton a strange and unnerving place.

Sounds a bit eerie. ๐Ÿ™‚

Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday ย Teaser but ย you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) toย get your teaser.

“Tell me about Lyra Campbell.”

“Money first.”

Helen slid the fat envelope across the table. Melissa counted the notes quickly, then stuffed the cash into her bag.

“She’s from London, I think. Not sure where exactly, but she talks like a Londoner. Like you.”

Despite Helen’s many years in Southampton, her South London accent had never entirely deserted her.

Hmm, I wonder who they are talking about?

book blogger hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. ย 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 read every day? If so, do you have a “page goal?”

Yes, I read every day even if it’s just a little bit before bed time. I think I would go crazy without reading a bit every day…lol. No, I don’t have a page goal as I am not a real fast reader but I do read as much as I can. ๐Ÿ™‚

      If you read Eeny Meeny, then you know that this series is a bit dark. I expect this one to be just as dark but interesting. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can see this series not being for everyone.

    • Stormi

      Yes, I think it would be a lot of fun to visit that era, though I can see myself defying those in authority like some of the fun historicals I have read. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Stormi

      You will want to try Eeny Meeny first as some of the things that happen in the end come up in the second book. It might make those parts a bit more understandable.

    • Stormi

      Eeny Meeny was dark, the female investigator is very broken and has a strange fetish for a cop. I think it’s best to read it first, but so far I am liking Pop Goes the Weasel but it’s very dark too. I would describe this as a dark British crime series. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Stormi

      Yeah I think you might like this series. Eeny Meeny is book one as this is book two. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pop Goes the Weasel sounds great, Stormi! I love dark stories, and if the mystery here is good, I’ll definitely add it to my TBR ๐Ÿ™‚
    Teleporting into a story? With the latest books I’ve read, I don’t think I’d enjoy myself very much if I were a part of the story myself… I would probably be the first victim in a dystopia or paranormal story ๐Ÿ˜€
    Have a great weekend and happy reading.

    This one does sound dark and I definitely have read my share of dark crime novels.Not as much as I used to when I was younger though. I hope you enjoy and look forward to your thoughts. And yes, like you, I have to read everyday or I would not be happy! Jumping into a story? That’s a hard one, I would really have to think on that one!
