The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Traitor to the Throne (Rebel of the Sands #2) by Alwyn Hamilton + 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, Traitor to the Throne (Rebel of the Sands #2) by Alwyn Hamilton.  I loved book one in this series and I don't know why I've put the sequel off for so long, but I'm glad I've finally picked it up now!

Beginning:

Once, in the desert kingdom of Miraji, there was a young prince who wanted his father's throne.

56:

"We need to send her reinforcements," she said as we felt our way through the inside of the cliff toward camp.

50/50 Friday: Favorite Longest/ Shortest Series


Longest - The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher - I'm dying for the future release of book sixteen! 


Shortest - Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo - It's only a duology, but it's awesome - I hope we get to see these characters in the future!

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

  12. I read the first Dresden Files book a few years ago and enjoyed it a lot. I have no idea why I haven't read more. I should probably remedy that, lol.
