Here’s this week’s question: Give us a sneak! What are you reading? Tell us about a fun or fail scene in your current read.

I just started PREY by Michael Crichton. I’m in page 4, so I’m not far enough into the story to have any fun scene to share. So I’m going to share a fun scene from the book I recently finished: TWO LITTLE GIRLS IN BLUE by Mary Higgins Clark. You can find my review HERE.

     “I always had an escape plan in mind, just in case Clint got caught on one of the jobs he did with Lucas,” she told Kathy with a chuckle. But then, seeing that Kathy was falling back asleep, she frowned and went over the bed and tapped the little girl’s shoulder. “Listen to me when I’m talking to you. You might learn something.”

     Kathy’s eyes remained closed.

     “Maybe I gave you too much of that cough medicine,” Angie speculated. “If it made Clint sleepy when he used it last year, I guess it could really knock you out.”

Actually, this isn’t supposed to be fun because the book deals with the kidnap of two three-year-old twins. But I so much loved Angie’s character. Though a psychopath, her character had enough depth to it, and she always make fun of everything.

How about you? What fun or fail scene from a book are you reading?

If you decided to follow me, you can do it through BlogLovin, RSS, or Email. I heard that GFC will disappear soon. And please check out my 400-Word Blog series The Beach Man. I’d appreciate it.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by. And don't forget to leave your link in the comments section below so I can follow back!

  4. I have been wanting to read a Crichton book for a long time now. I just never made time for it. I'll be interested to see your review on Prey.

  5. I haven't read any Crichton books ever, but I have some on my TBR. I think I'd be an emotional mess reading about little kids being kidnapped, though :(

    Thanks for stopping by my FF post earlier. Have a fantastic Friday!

  11. That sounds like a very macabre book, especially seeing that at first I thought the sneak peak was supposed to be funny, but knowing now the circumstances... it's not that funny at all!

    Thanks for sharing!

  12. I love Mary Higgins Clark, but haven't read this one. Great review, KayKay, even though much like you - too many characters sometimes gets a bit flustery. I will have to add this one to my ever growing pile, though.

    1. Mary Higgins is one of my favorite authors. I enjoy her suspense novels, and she knows how to keep one reading all night. You'll enjoy this one.

  13. I like the part where you say, "although a psychopath..." You are such a suspense/thriller/mystery reader! Despite being fairly new to that genre, I think you picked a really good quote to see Angie's mental workings. I didn't do my FF this week. Happy Friday, Kaykay!

    1. I wrote that funny, I'm the newbie to the genre and I can see the levity in Angie's thinking...you're not a newbie. hehe

      Delete
    2. Haha! :) I enjoyed every scene she appeared in, and somehow I wished the book had a movie adaptation. I'd definitely love to see someone play her role. She's one of those villains you can't help but fall in love with. Although she's quite dumb, but she's funny. :)

      Thanks for dropping by my FF. I'd have loved to see the fun or fail scene in your current read.

    3. Ah, you should play JC's Book Haven's Sidekick Saturday. We give credit to the side characters. Jaclyn chooses a theme, like this weekend it was shifter. You can simply choose the character and explain why, or you can offer quotes. I try to find an actor that would play the person. Check it out if you're looking for a fun meme to join, http://jcbookhaven.blogspot.com/2013/05/sidekick-saturday-21-shifter.html

    4. I know the meme! :) It's a nice concept. I'll try and see if I can play it, though I might not participate regularly. :)

  20. Haven't read this one, but i'm going to check it out. I understand why you'd Angie, she may be a psychopath but if a character has enough depth and substance you're going to like them, bad or not!

  23. I would have loved to have seen a little snippet of Prey but since you just started it, I guess I'm out of luck. But, that was a bit funny...until you mentioned that she was a psychopath! Thanks for stopping by :)
