The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): The Bone Shard Daughter (The Drowning Empire #1) by Andrea Stewart



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 Pride Month 2023 books, The Bone Shard Daughter (The Drowning Empire #1) by Andrea Stewart.  This is has been on my tbr for way too long and it's been recommended to me so many times.  I'm glad I finally decided to give it a try.


Father told me I'm broken.


I raked a hand through my hair.  Both were covered in dust.  My lungs still felt scratchy with it.

Have you read this book?  What are you reading this month?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!


  1. I haven't read this book yet but it is definitely on my list now! That opening line really just pulls you straight in! I'm glad you enjoyed it, that's a recommendation in and of itself! I hope you have a lovely weekend :)

  2. Great cover, and I love the excerpts.

  3. I haven't read this book, but it sounds like a good one. I like the cover, too. Have a great weekend!

  4. Why did her father tell her she was broken? Males being awful? Or was she really broken. like after a fall?

  5. Love the cover! Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  6. I enjoyed this a lot, I hope you do too😁

  7. This one has been on my list forever too! Have a great week ahead!
