The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Gallant by V.E. Schwab


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 (the first one of 2023, can you believe it?!) everyone! This week I'm spotlighting one of my PopCulture Readathon books, Gallant by V.E. Schwab.  I'm so glad I finally decided to start in on this - I've missed reading this author!


Rain drums its fingers on the garden shed.


Frustration prickles through her, not at him, but at her, at Grace, the woman who vanished, leaving only a tattered notebook and a silent child on a stoop.  At the way the story trails off, without the promise of an end.

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. Hey, the rain drummed its fingers on our roof last night. Really loud drumming, too.

    My quotes this week

  2. Rain has been drumming and then some here, too, so I immediately felt right at home with that opening.

  3. We live in a former swampland, so this book sounds like a book most of us around here would like.

  4. Those lines are both very intriguing. I've heard this book is good and I hope you enjoy it.

  5. I haven't read this one yet.... yet being the key word here. :-) Happy weekend!

  6. No rain today, but I live in Louisiana - give the weather a second, it'll change! LOL I haven't read this book. Maybe I should!
