The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Notorious Sorcerer (The Burnished City #1) by Davinia Evans



On Friday's I take part in two weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice (Anne @ My Head Is Full of Books is currently managing hosting duties), 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 one of my Beat The Backlist 2024 books, Notorious Sorcerer (The Burnished City #1) by Davinia Evans.  I've heard great things about this and it sounds right up my alley.


Siyon couldn't get the damn square to line up, and the hangover definitely wasn't helping.


The footman banged his elbow against the door and hissed, but Zagiri ignored him.

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


  1. Great excerpts, and I love the cover. Here's mine: BOOKISH FRIDAY

  2. I hate it when squares don't match up. It seems like this book is sprinkled with humor, yes?

  3. I'm adding this one to my wish list right now! I love the sound of this and from the excerpts, this sounds like such a fun read. I hope you enjoy it, Lauren! Have a great weekend!

  4. I've heard good things about this too. Looking forward to your thoughts!

  5. Love the cover, and the first line made me smile. Happy Reading!

  6. This is one that I want to read too! The quotes make it sound like everybody is having a rough time lol.
