Friday Meme’s ~Sadie

Posted September 4, 2020 by Stormi in Misc. / 4 Comments

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 missing girl on a journey of revenge. A Serial―like podcast following the clues she’s left behind. And an ending you won’t be able to stop talking about.

Sadie hasn’t had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she’s been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.

But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie’s entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister’s killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him.

When West McCray―a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America―overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.

Just finished this one and while it was enjoyable I am not sure it was worth all the hype. Maybe because at the time it was the first podcast type book, but since I have listened to Night Swim already, this was nothing different. I also was not a fan of the ending.


It’s a beautiful day in the city. The sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky. I had a great lunch in Central Park, a chicken shawarma from the Shawarma Shop, which was overwhelmingly recommended to us by out listeners after last week’s episode on NYC’s best kept secrets.

Starts out with one of the podcast guys but not the main one in the story.

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.

Wagner reminds me of a phoenix just before it dies and is reborn. The developing subdivision I spent the night in speaks to the place it’ll become after the rest of it bursts into flames; some quaint tourist hot spot rising from the ashes.

Interesting way of viewing the town Sadie is passing through.

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 book or books are you going to read on Labor Day weekend?

Whatever I am currently reading…lol. 🙂  If I am still reading The Remaking by Clay McLeod Chapman then it will probably be that. Then I am not really sure.

      Sadie will be a quick read for you! So far The Remaking is okay but I haven’t gotten far, I took a detour with a middle grade book and it has sucked me in…lol.

  1. I am glad you enjoyed it even if it didn’t live up to the hype. it can be disappointing when that happens. I haven’t read Sadie–and this actually the first I’ve heard about it. I haven’t read a book in that format before. Although I do think I have Night Swim on my wish list . . .

    I hope you enjoy your current read and have a great weekend, Stormi! Happy reading.
