Friday Memes 2/12

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
Are you able to read in the car? 

My Answer:
I go back and forth. Growing up I had no trouble reading in the car then in my late teens I started getting car sick on occasion. But it's hit or miss!

"Please join me every Friday to 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. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name."

Fog wafted over the silent hilltop, dancing in eerie waves amidst the centuries-old trees, the weathered trunks the sole markers of the lost graves littering the grounds surrounding them.
Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey

My Thoughts
Love the imagery of this beginning!

I never get to read in the car.

The first sentence of you book sounds awesome. That would make me want to read more.

Beautiful description in the opening scene. The author sets a somber mood too.
My Friday post features THE HURRICANE SISTERS.

I am pretty good for the most part. I do better in the front seat than in the back.

Happy Hopping!!

First sentence sounds pretty awesome!

Similarly I have difficulty reading in the car as I almost always get carsick now :(

Luckily, I have my kindle with me most of the time and for whatever reason, I CAN read on a kindle without getting sick! Woo!

Have a great weekend :)

Maria said...

Very good first sentence - my mom and I are both big fans of romantic suspense and I know she will want to read this one - great choice - I can give it to her for Valentine's Day:) Here's my Friday meme

I have never had any problems with car sickness, fortunately.

I like the first sentence you shared. Dani Pettrey is a new to me author. I will have to look for Cold Shot.

Have a great week!

I am fortunate that I get less car sick as I grow up.
