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, One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia. This novel middle grade historical fiction novel will fulfill a task for Book Riot's 2017 Read Harder Challenge wherein all POV characters are POC. I've had my eye on this award winner for awhile, so this is a perfect time to dive on in.
Good thing the plane had seat belts and we'd been strapped in tight before takeoff.

50/50 Friday: Favorite/ Least Favorite Book Read In November
Least Favorite - Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody - I actually DNF'd this on audiobook at about 30%. It sounded exactly like something I'd love, but it didn't hold my interest.
Favorite - Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo - I actually had a few five star reads, for books that I finished in November, but this was my favorite of all of them by far. I have no clue as to why I didn't read it sooner! I'll need to get to Crooked Kingdom soon!
Have you read any of these books? If so, did you end up enjoying them? As always thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps commenting down below!
