Friday Meme’s: The Foxglove Killings
Since 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.

I just started The Foxglove Killings for a blog tour that is coming up soon. This is from 5% into the book in chapter two.
“I heard you guys found that deer at the park,” Megan said.
“Did you see it?” I asked.
Her face crumpled a little and she sipped her root beer. “No, But people won’t stop talking about it. Like, describing it. This guy in my class even drew a picture.”
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Gramps always said that when the crickets were quiet, something bad was coming. And the crickets have been as silent as the dead. It started with the murdered deer in the playground with the unmistakable purple of a foxglove in its mouth. But in the dying boondock town of Emerald Cove, life goes on.
I work at Gramps’s diner, and the cakes―the entitled rich kids who vacation here―make our lives hell. My best friend, Alex Pace, is the one person who gets me. Only Alex has changed. He’s almost like a stranger now. I can’t figure it out…or why I’m having distinctly more-than-friend feelings for him. Ones I shouldn’t be having.
Then one of the cakes disappears.
When she turns up murdered, a foxglove in her mouth, a rumor goes around that Alex was the last person seen with her—and everyone but me believes it. Well, everyone except my worst enemy, Jenika Shaw. When Alex goes missing, it’s up to us to prove his innocence and uncover the true killer. But the truth will shatter everything I’ve ever known about myself — and Alex.
Alex saw it first.
We were cutting through Neahkahnie Park, the morning sun warm on our backs. I was telling him we should take his grandpa’s El Camino SS and drive down the coast to California for the Summer.
A few paragraphs down and you find out what Alex saw, a dead dear. I don’t have much to say about this book cause I literally just started it this morning and I am only one chapter two, but it sounds really good so fingers crossed! 🙂
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.
Chances were he was with Jenika, doing things I didn’t want to picture. But what if he wasn’t?
Despite everything I’d seen lately, Alex would always be that skinny nine-year-old who sat at my lunch table and offered his sandwich. A kid with a “heart too big for this world,” as his grandpa always said.
He might have a mountain of issues. He might be acting like someone else entirely. And they might say some psychopaths were made, not born. But Alex wasn’t a killer. He just wasn’t.
From 56% on my kindle and we know from the blurb that people think her friend is a killer so it must be about that point in the book. I am curious and can’t wait to get into this book more! 🙂
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 time of the year does your library have its library sale?
Okay so this is sad for a booklover, but I really don’t go to the library much these days. So I have no clue when they have there sales or anything…lol.
