The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): The Lost Book of the White (The Eldest Curses #2) by Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu

On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  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. 

Happy Friday everyone!  This week I'm spotlighting one of my current reads, The Lost Book of the White (The Eldest Curses #2) by Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu.  I've really enjoyed the Shadowhunters novels and it's good to see a couple of my favorite characters helm their own spinoff series.

It was not quite dawn when Magnus Bane rode into the low clearing with death on his mind.


"I'm still closely associated with the name," Jace insisted.  "I was just feeling like - can I pull off having a morning star as my signature weapon?  Is it me?"

"You mean, can you avoid looking like a heavy-metal album cover?" said Simon.

"I don't know what that is, and I don't want to," said Jace.  "I just mean, am I cool enough?"

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