The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): An Absolutely Remarkable Thing (An Absolutely Remarkable Thing #1) by Hank Green + 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 reads, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing (An Absolutely Remarkable Thing #1) by Hank Green. I've really been looking forward to this and it finally came in at the library. So far, I'm enjoying what I've read.
Look, I am aware that you're here for an epic tale of intrigue and mystery and adventure and near death and actual death, but in order to get to that (unless you want to skip to chapter 13 - I'm not your boss), you're going to have to deal with the fact that I, April May, in addition to being one of the most important things that has ever happened to the human race, am also a woman in her twenties who has made some mistakes.
The properties you describe... hard, resonant, shiny, heavy, extremely low thermal conductivity, do not sound peculiar, they sound impossible.
50/50 Friday: Most/ Least Shocking Plot Twist
Most Shocking - Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - This still takes the cake!
