The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Such Dark Things by Courtney Evan Tate + 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!  Today, I'm sharing first read (selected by drawing the name from my Baby Groot planter) for the My Own Books Reading Challenge which is being hosted by Anne @ My Head is Full of Books, Such Dark Things by Courtney Evan Tate.  My dad bought this one for me not to long ago and it's time I see what this mystery thriller is all about.

Beginnings:

My skin is sticky with blood.

56:

"Don't judge me.  I had three hours of sleep last night."

50/50 Friday: Character Most/ Least Likely To Commit Grand Theft Auto


Most likely - Ronan Lynch from The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater - Well, he's stolen a car before - and he'd probably do it again too.


Least likely - Noah Czerny from The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater - Of anyone from the series, I just can't see Noah commit grand theft auto.

What are you reading this weekend?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  1. I want to catch up with review books so I can read my own books too😁 I'm finishing up Wild Country by tomorrow, then I'm not sure what I'll be reading. There are so many good March releases!

  14. I still really need to read The Raven Cycle! I think I actually won an ebook copy of it a while back and I STILL haven't gotten around to it yet. It's just one of those books that keeps yelling at me from my TBR :) Thanks for linking up, Lauren!
