The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): A Sky Beyond the Storm (An Ember in the Ashes #4) by Sabaa Tahir



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 Wayward-A-Thon books, A Sky Beyond the Storm (An Ember in the Ashes #4) by Sabaa Tahir.  I've loved this series and I know this finale is going to be absolutely brutal, but worth it.

Beginning:

I awoke in the glow of a young world, when man knew of hunting but not tilling, of stone but not steel.  It smelled of rain and earth and life.  It smelled of hope.

56:

These memories are folly, for emotion has no place in my world.


Are you participating in this Supernatural inspired readathon?  Have you read this book?  What are you reading this weekend?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
