The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Playing With Fire (Skulduggery Pleasant #2) by Derek Landy + 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 #BeatTheBacklist reads, Playing With Fire (Skulduggery Pleasant #2) by Derek Landy. I loved book one a couple of years ago when I read it and I finally got my hands on the next couple of titles in the series which I plan on tackling for this challenge. I've heard so many wonderful things about the series and I can't wait to see how things continue for Skulduggery and his apprentice, Valykyrie.
Valkyrie Cain hit the parapet and tumbled, unable to stop herself, and with a panicked gasp she disappeared over the edge.
Valkyrie made herself relax, remembering the drills she'd run with Skulduggery and Tanith, conditioning her body to relax when every part of her wanted to scream.
50/50 Friday: Favorite/ Least Favorite Classic Novel
Least Favorite - The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand - Hands down the least favorite classic I had to read for school. I had to read it and write an essay on it and I honestly hated every second.
The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle - This pretty easily takes the number one spot!
