Welcome to The Friday 56, a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.
These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.
I'm also taking part in Book Beginnings, a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. The rules are pretty simple - you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires. Don't forget to link up your post's url with Rose City Reader.
This week I'm spotlighting one of my most anticipated reads of the year, A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic #3) by V.E. Schwab! I'm so excited to be starting in on this series finale, but I really don't want it all to be over. Anyway, without further ado:
Delilah Bard - always a thief, recently a magician, and one day, hopefully, a pirate - was running as fast as she could.
The driver didn't fight the magic, or if he did, it was a battle quickly lost.
This week I'm also taking part in a brand new linkup called 50/50 Friday, which is hosted by Carrie @ The Butterfly Reader and Laura @ Blue Eye Books. Every week they'll have a new topic featuring two sides of the same coin - this week the topic is a Novel Worth/ Not Worth the Hype.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff - Both it and it's sequel - I'm dying for the third book in the series to come out already!
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken - It kills me a little bit to say this since this was one of my most highly anticipated releases of 2016, but it just live up to my expectations.
What are you reading this week? Have you tried any of the books I've mentioned above? If so, what did you think of them?
