The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia + 50/50 Friday




On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and 50/50 Friday is a new weekly link up and it is hosted by Carrie @ The Butterfly Reader and Laura @ Blue Eye Books. For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. Then, for 50/50 Friday, every week there's a new topic featuring two sides of the same coin - you share a book that suits each category and link up on the hosts blogs.


This week I'm spotlighting one of my LOHF Anniversary Readathon reads, Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.  I've already completed it, but I absolutely loved it.  To be honest, I'm always ready for more unique vampires!

Beginning:

Collecting garbage sharpens the senses.  It allows us to notice what others do not see.

56:

Domingo blinked.  His head felt like it was about to explode.

50/50 Friday: Character/ Most Least Likely To Start A Band


Most likely - Sam from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - He's already a musician isn't he.


Least likely - Grace Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - I expect she'd be listening in the audience at his concert.


What are you reading this weekend?  Have you read either of these two?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

    I think I have a copy of Shiver on my kindle, I just have never gotten around to reading it.
