The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Painted Devils (Little Thieves #2) by Margaret Owen



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, Painted Devils (Little Thieves #2) by Margaret Owen .  I'm also I'm reading this for the Popsugar Reading Challenge.  I've been putting off this humongous series opener for way too long!


Once upon a time, a bride fled into the night on a steed spun from starlight.  The clouds were her road, and her veil tangled in the constellations, tearing away until her golden bridal crown tumbled into the chasm below. 

The bride watched it fall, and she told herself she was free.


"It's against the accords," Kirkling snaps, busily scratching in her notebook yet again.

  3. How is it an opener if the series title says #2? Is there a prequel that most people read first?

    1. I think I goofed up somewhere. It is a sequel - and I loved the series opener. :)

  4. Sounds good, I need to read the first book! Happy weekend!

  5. I like the quotes. I haven't read this one, but I've heard some praise for the first book in the series. Have a great weekend!

  6. I've heard so many good things about this book, I'm looking forward to your review😁
