Friday Meme’s ~ The Toy Thief
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 is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Jack didn’t know what to call the nameless, skeletal creature that slunk into her house in the dead of night, stealing the very things she loved the most. So she named him The Toy Thief… There’s something in Jack’s past that she doesn’t want to face, an evil presence that forever changed the trajectory of her family. It all began when The Toy Thief appeared, a being drawn by goodness and innocence, eager to feed on everything Jack holds dear. What began as a mystery spirals out of control when her brother, Andy, is taken away in the night, and Jack must venture into the dark place where the toys go to get him back. But even if she finds him, will he ever be the same?
I figure since it’s October it would be fitting to feature some horror books that I have on my radar!
You’re probably wondering what it was like being a girl named Jack.
Yeah, I thought it was weird her name was Jack.
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.
As odd as the light made the creature look, I think I understood. I thought of the anglerfish I had seen in a textbook from school, one of the many odd and amazing creatures that lived in the punishing depths of the deep sea. They too carried their lights with them, luring unsuspecting fish into their cavernous mouths.
Interesting. I am curious about this creature.
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.
It’s getting close to Halloween. If you HAD to read one of these two genres, which would you prefer — urban fantasy, or horror, and why?
This is a no brainer! Horror! I love horror anyway so my want to read of this genre is just ramped up during the Halloween month. 🙂
