The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson + 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, Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson.  I've had this on my shelf for ages and I've finally decided to give it a try.  The concept sounds really cool what with the main character being a dreamwalker and all.

Beginning:

Afterward, Dea blamed it all on Toby.  She knew it wasn't nice to blame a cat.

56:

She shoved Toby over and he got up, yawning, before settling down again six inches from where he'd been last sitting.


50/50 Friday: Best/ Worst Bookish Vampire Mythology


Best - Strange Practice (Dr. Greta Helsing #1) by Vivian Shaw - I love this series so much and it's so unique.  I've got my fingers crossed that we'll see these characters again in the future even though the series has already ended.


Worst - A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy #1) by Deborah Harkness - I wanted to love this, but the romance overpowered it all 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!

  6. Oh myyyy, I absolutely LOVE that tagline. Gives me goosebumps haha. Toby seems like a fabulous character. It's been my experience that while it may not be nice to blame a cat, it's usually their fault and they know it, darn it! Definitely gonna check this one out. :)

    1. Usually is, isn't it! I just finished it and it was good, but it didn't quite end of living up to all of its potential. I'd love to know what you think of it.

  9. And A Discovery of Witches didn’t even have a good romance to top it off.
