The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): The Rook (The Checquy Files #1) by Daniel O'Malley + 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 current reads, The Rook (The Checquy Files #1) by Daniel O'Malley, which is also the book which will complete my character (The Knight) quest for #TheReadingQuest - it fulfills the book with a red cover square. Anyway, I've heard awesome things about this novel and I'm already loving what I've read so far!
The body you are wearing used to be mine.

50/50 Friday: Favorite/ Least Favorite Cover Trend
Favorite - Intricate typography, big centered titles, minimalist, photo-realistic fantasy or urban fantasy scene (see Chris McGrath)
Least - Silhouettes, backs, faces, hands, dresses
