The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers #1) by Brigid Kemmerer + 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, A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers #1) by Brigid Kemmerer, which is one of my 2020 Popsugar Reading Challenge books.  I've liked what I've read from Kemmerer so far, and this Beauty and the Beast retelling sounds like it could be cool.  What I've read so far has a lot of potential.

Beginning: 

There is blood under my fingernails.  I wonder how many of my people I've killed this time.

56:

Darkness cloaks the trail, but a cool breeze whispers between the trees.

50/50 Friday: Character Most/ Least Likely To Change The World


Most Likely - Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee


Least Likely - Bella Swan from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

  2. Curse is my favorite Beauty and the Beast retelling, and I'm pretty sure I've read most if not all of them. I've read I think 5 different ones.
    I am pretty excited for the sequel, probably will be getting it from the library as I wait for my self imposed book buying ban ends.
