The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World #1) by Rebecca Roanhorse + 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.
Happy Friday everyone! This week I'm spotlighting one of my current reads, Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World #1) by Rebecca Roanhorse. This novel will fulfill the start a series square on my Winter Bookish Bingo board and it's my first Fantastic February read as well. So far I'm absolutely loving it!
The monster has been here. I can smell him.
We stop a little after noon like I said, just past Twin Lakes. There are, of course, no lakes here. Whatever water was ever here dried up long ago.
50/50 Friday: Best/ Worst World-Building In A Fantasy Novel/ Series
Best - I can't decide between A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab and The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch!
Worst - Red Queen (Red Queen #1) by Victoria Aveyard - Okay, this may not be the worst, but it certainly isn't original or unique.
What are you reading this weekend? Have you read either of these books? As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
