The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): The Councillor (The Councillor #1) by E.J. Beaton

On Friday's I take part in two 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 PopCulture Readathon books, The Councillor (The Councillor #1) by E.J. Beaton.  So far, I'd say this is right up my alley!


The shape of a crown stood out in the emerald wax of the seal, and Lysande glanced at it once before looking away, staring at anything but that envelope.  She raised her vial and drank.


Shifting further into the shade of blackfoot branches, Lysande watched as the two women conversed, noting how the second physician grinned, dipping her fingers in the fountain.

Have you read this book?  Are you taking part in this readathon?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!


  1. This one sounds good. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “FIND ME”

  2. I have not read this book nor am I taking part in the readathon. I did sign up for quite a few challenges and couldn't do them all. I hope you continue to enjoy this one. Have a great weekend!

  3. I love the cover. I am craving a readathon but have other commitments. Hope you get a lot read. My Friday quotes are from Harlem Shuffle

  4. I don't think I've heard of this series before. I really like the second excerpt you shared. It makes me want to know more. I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. I've not heard of it but I am curious for more! Happy weekend!

  6. I've heard so many good things about this book. I'm curious to hear your thoughts!

    1. So far so good! I've only heard great things myself.

  7. I haven't read this one, or even heard of it, but it sounds like it may need to go on my TBR.
