The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6) by Sarah J. Maas + 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, Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6) by Sarah J. Maas, which is one of my 2020 Popsugar Reading Challenge books.  I've just finished up Empire of Storms so it's a great feeling to have the opportunity to jump into this parallel novel so soon.

Beginning:

Chaol Westfall, former Captain of the Royal Guard and now Hand to the newly crowned King of Adarlan, had discovered that he hated one sound above all others.

56:

He and Nesryn had never been good at talking.  They'd tried, usually with disastrous results.

50/50 Friday - Favorite/ Least Favorite Romance of 2019



Favorite - The Queen of Nothing (The Folk of the Air #3) by Holly Black - I love this series so much!


Least favorite - I Spy the Boy Next Door by Samantha Armstrong - Maybe if I were younger I would have liked this more?  Otherwise, it really wasn't for me.


What are you reading this weekend?  Have you read any of these books?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
