Greetings Humans! It’s Friday and my Mommy isn’t working today. Therefore, we have time to do a Weekend Book Friends and spend the rest of the day reading and relaxing. Scrap that. She and Daddy is going to the big town a couple of miles away to go her some new ballet shoes. Crazy lady, I know.
#1 bestselling author Stephen King returns with a brand-new novel about the secrets we keep buried and the cost of unearthing them.
The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child. Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine – as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave.
Later is Stephen King at his finest, a terrifying and touching story of innocence lost and the trials that test our sense of right and wrong. With echoes of King’s classic novel IT, Later is a powerful, haunting, unforgettable exploration of what it takes to stand up to evil in all the faces it wears.
For our first stop today, we will pay a visit to Gilion over at Rose City Readerto share our Book Beginnings. Every Friday you can link up and share the first sentence of your current read (or the one you plan to devour over the weekend), as well as your initial thoughts and impressions. Hashtags are the one thing I do know on social media, so simply #bookbeginnings so we can find each other.
The Friday 56
Next we will pay a visit to Freda over at Freda’s voicewho hosts the Friday 56. Don’t show up empty handed though!
- Grab a book (Yes, any book. But it might get you to your other Friday activities a bit quicker if you just grab the book you are currently reading)
- Turn to page 56 or 56% on your e-reader
- Find a sentence or two (your other Friday activities might determine this)
- Post it!
- Remember to post your link on Freda’s Voice and to visit the other guys in the linky.
- And last but not least, don’t forget to list the title of the book and the author as well.
Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger’s hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. Every week, there will be a prompt featuring a book related question. It’s hosted byRamblings of a coffee addicted writer and I guess he hops around like a bunny due to all the caffeine. Hence his name.
“The most beautiful cat in San Lorenzo, Dulcinea teaches the kids at the orphanage. Dulcinea is smart and independent, known as “The Great Prophecy” and when she decides she’s going to do something rabid mules couldn’t stop her. She is quite naive, kind and generous. Dulcinea sees only the best in people and often her relentlessly positive opinion brings out the best in them.”
We haven’t spoken to Lynn @ Books and Travelling with Lynn in weeks and me miss her! We love Friday Face Off and my Mommy so enjoys searching for lovely covers. The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined theme choose a book (this doesn’t have to be a book that you’ve read), compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.
