Friday Meme’s ~ The Black Country

August 3, 2018 Misc. 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.

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

Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad returns.

The British Midlands. It’s called the “Black Country” for a reason. Bad things happen there.

When members of a prominent family disappear from a coal-mining village—and a human eyeball is discovered in a bird’s nest—the local constable sends for help from Scotland Yard’s new Murder Squad. Fresh off the grisly 1889 murders of The Yard, Inspector Walter Day and Sergeant Nevil Hammersmith respond, but they have no idea what they’re about to get into. The villagers have intense, intertwined histories. Everybody bears a secret. Superstitions abound. And the village itself is slowly sinking into the mines beneath it.

Not even the arrival of forensics pioneer Dr. Bernard Kingsley seems to help. In fact, the more the three of them investigate, the more they realize they may never be allowed to leave. . . . 

I read the first one a few years ago and I have been meaning to get to the next one. A few weeks ago or so Kathi reviewed it on my blog and gave it good marks so I figure it’s time to jump on it. 🙂

Inspector Walter Day stepped off the train and directly into a dirty grey snowbank that covered his ankles.

Sounds cold. 🙂


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.

“You won’t lose it now? The eye, I mean.” “We won’t lose it.”

Young girl found an eye in a birds nest. Ewwwww. 🙂

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.

Have you ever had a bookish, nocturnal dream? If so, please share the story. If not, have you ever had a daydream related to books? If so, please tell us about it.

I am sure I have but a lot of times when I wake up I forget them. I know I have had dreams of publishing a novel. 🙂 Heck, I daydream about that all the time too…just need to turn dreams into reality. 🙂
