It’s Friday! Time for Book Beginnings and the Friday 56
This week I’m featuring Blood Bonds by Kerry A. Campbell from the Geeky Book Lady!
Book Beginnings on Fridays
Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme hosted at Rose City Reader You share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires
Lily pulled her coat closer against the crisp night air. Her cheeks stung, the skin tight from the cold.
Many people would feel uneasy walking alone after midnight down these streets. Lily did not. She knew her hometown well, and when her insomnia kept her awake, she hit the streets. After two years of these late-night walks, she felt comfortable walking alone.
What do you think of Lily so far? She’s braver that I am!
The Friday 56
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple.
Here’s the blurb from Page 56:
Lily felt paralysed.
Eric got up, flipped the man over and took the dagger out of his chest.
“That’s going to stain,” Dimitri said, as he watched blood pool onto the rug. “What a waste of perfect blood.” He sighed.
You gotta love that line “That’s going to stain”!
Here’s the blurb from Amazon:
Lily Myers is living an ordinary life until she meets Quinn Carter. When Quinn turns out to be a century-old vampire, Lily is thrust into a reality where she’s an unwilling believer. But as her fear fades and her curiosity wins out, she finds herself falling for Quinn and learning more about this new world. From hunting down a vampire killer to meeting werewolves, Lily’s life has definitely taken a turn…but whether it’s for the worse or better, she’s still finding out.
So far, I’ve only read to 24% of this book, and I have to say, I’m really enjoying it. Kerry brings her characters to life, and considering the subject matter, she has quite the knack for humour!
Thanks for reading and Happy Weekend!
