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 my next read, The Ship Beyond Time (The Girl From Everywhere #1) by Heidi Heilig. I absolutely can't wait to jump into this novel as the first book in this series was one of my favorites from 2016 and an absolutely marvelous debut!
On a warm December day in 1884, the Temptation was leaving Hawaii, as well as the nineteenth century, and her destination was entirely in her hands.
"We should do something nice for the," she said then.
"For Bee and Ayen. To celebrate."
"What's better than a triple scoop with rainbow sprinkles?"
Now Nix swatted at me, but instead of slipping away, I caught her fingers in mine. "She helped throw me a party for my theft day," she said. "It's important."
This week I'm also taking part in a 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 World You'd Like/ Not Like To Live In. I could have very easily said the Wizarding World and Panem as my two choices respectively, but I'll pick another pair for a change of scenery.
World I'd Like To Live In:
Arnes, aka Red London from Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab - Can you blame me? Kell's London sounds wonderful.
World I'd Not Like To Live In:
