The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): The Good, The Bad, and the Undead (The Hollows #2) by Kim Harrison + 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, The Good, The Bad, and the Undead (The Hollows #2) by Kim Harrison.  I loved book one in this series, Dead Witch Walking, when I read it this time last year.  I'm glad I finally have the chance to get to more of this series.

Beginning: 

I hitched the canvas strap holding the watering canister higher up on my shoulder and stretched to get the nozzle into the hanging plant.

56:

"All magic requires a price paid by death, Detective.  White earth magic pays for it by my blood and killing plants."

50/50 Friday: Best/ Worst Read In August


Worst - The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson - This audiobook sounded like it had a lot of potential, but I ended up DNF'ing it at only 10%.  I guess it just wasn't for me.


Best - Foundryside (Founders #1) by Robert Jackson Bennett - I read  a lot of great books, but new fantasy novel stands out the most.


Have you read any of these books?  What are you reading this weekend?  As always, thank you for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  1. I love Kim Harrison but I haven't read her books for a while. And I agree, Foundryside is one of the best books of summer!

  3. I didn't like Summer Prince either and was shocked at how much Printz chatter it got the year it was published. My Friday Quotes

  7. Interesting that both the beginning and the 56 mention plants.

    Is it intentionally campy or totally serious?
