The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Half-Resurrection Blues (Bone Street Rumba #1) by Daniel Jose Older + 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.
It's just past eleven p.m. on December thirty-first - that dizzy in between time when we're not quite here but not yet there - and hip, young white kids crowd the trendy streets of Park Slope, Brooklyn.
He nods like he understands, which is endearing even though he obviously has no clue what's going on.
50/50 Friday: Favorite/ Least Favorite Orange Cover
Favorite - The Martian by Andy Weir - Can you blame me for picking this favorite?
Least Favorite - I Am Number Four (The Lorien Legacies #1) by Pittacus Lore - I've never been particularly interested in trying this series, and I have to admit this cover doesn't really inspire me.
