The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Necropolis by Michael Dempsey



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 Trope-ical Readathon books, Necropolis by Michael Dempsey.  I don't know about you, but this cyberpunk noir sounds like it's going to be exactly my kind of thing.

Beginning:

Ten minutes before I died, I realized I was out of cigarettes.

56:

I had no patience for liars and game-players.  But I needed a stake.


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