The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Anansi Boys (American Gods #2) by Neil Gaiman

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 Magical Readathon reads, Anansi Boys (American Gods #2) by Neil Gaiman.  I loved American Gods and I have no idea why I've been putting this off for so long.


It begins, as most things begin, with a song. 


"I'll wait in the kitchen," she said.  "Tell me when it's all over."

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


  1. Gosh, I need to think if I've read American Gods?? I think I have, but getting confused with Good Omens in my mind here! Will have to check this one out as I love Neil Gaiman!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. I wouldn't say it was his best either but still not too bad. :)
