The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet, Book One by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Illustrated by Brian Stelfreeze + 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 next reads, Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet, Book One by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Illustrated by Brian Stelfreeze. This graphic novel will fulfill the task of a comic written or illustrated by a person of color task for Book Riot's 2018 Read Harder Challenge. I don't know much about the character, but I'm really excited to try this. I really like the character in Captain America: Civil War and I can't wait to see Black Panther!
50/50 Friday: Best/ Worst Book Read In 2017
Worst - The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser - I don't know if it was strictly speaking the worst, but it was definitely one of the most disappointing. There was so much potential, but it just didn't live up to it at all unfortunately.
Best - It's a hard choice, but I loved An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors by Curtis Craddock - it was such a pleasant surprise!
