The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff + 50/50 Friday
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 current reads, Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, which includes some illustrations by Mari Lu. I absolutely adored Illuminae and I'm so excited to finally be reading the sequel! I'm not all that far along into it yet, but it's definitely living up to my expectations! And, since it is Sci-Fi Month, I think I picked the perfect time to start in on the novel.
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 Best/ Worst Villain.
Mayor Prentiss from the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness - Makes a perfect example of Affably Evil
Warner from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - I just didn't get it - he seemed so flat to me.
