The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories (The Folk of the Air #3.5) by Holly Black



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 Mythothon books, How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories (The Folk of the Air #3.5) by Holly Black.  I loved this series and I'm so glad to be back in this world.

Beginning: 

"This?" He demands, looking down at the waves far beneath them.  "This is how you traveled?  What if the enchantment ended while Vivi wasn't with you?"

56:

He had seen her before, he supposed.  But at the palace school, he really looked.
