Friday Meme’s ~ Winterhouse

March 6, 2020 Misc. 6

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.

An enchanting urban fantasy middle-grade debut―the first book in a trilogy―set in a magical hotel full of secrets.

Orphan Elizabeth Somers’s malevolent aunt and uncle ship her off to the ominous Winterhouse Hotel, owned by the peculiar Norbridge Falls. Upon arrival, Elizabeth quickly discovers that Winterhouse has many charms―most notably its massive library. It’s not long before she locates a magical book of puzzles that will unlock a mystery involving Norbridge and his sinister family. But the deeper she delves into the hotel’s secrets, the more Elizabeth starts to realize that she is somehow connected to Winterhouse. As fate would have it, Elizabeth is the only person who can break the hotel’s curse and solve the mystery. But will it be at the cost of losing the people she has come to care for, and even Winterhouse itself?

Mystery, adventure, and beautiful writing combine in this exciting debut richly set in a hotel full of secrets.

Not read this author but he is fairly new since this was his debut novel in 2018, but I have heard all sorts of good things about it. It’s suppose to be a middle grade mystery so it will hit both of my month long readathons I am participating in. 🙂 I haven’t started it yet but I will be doing so soon.

When Elizabeth Somers tugged open the gate to her aunt and uncle’s yard and saw an envelope duct-taped to the front door of the shabby house she shared with them, she knew it as bad news.

I am curious to know what is in that envelope!

I had to post a pic of one of the cool illustrations!

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.

“I wasn’t sneaking around,” Elizabeth said. “The brochure was just sitting there.”

“You have an answer for everything!” Aunt Purdy said. She cracked the knuckles of her bony fingers (for someone who sat in front of the television set so much, Aunt Purdy remained almost as thin as a Popsicle stick). Then she stuffed a handful of cheese puffs into her mouth and kept her eyes on the program. “Like your mother.”

I wonder what is in the brochure. 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.

When did you first know you’re truly a bookworm? Did you lose sleep over a novel?

I think I knew I was a bookworm at an early age when I was always turning in those little book it (I think they were called) certificates in school for little personal pan pizzas. You had to read so many books to get one and I got them all the time…lol. Going to the library was always my favorite thing to do whether in school or going with my mom to the county library.
