Friday Reads 27th November 2015

Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice, the idea is to grab a book, turn to page 56 (or 56% in an e-book) and find any sentence (no spoilers!) and then post it. Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence and impressions about the book.

Clare:

UprootedThe Burning Sky (The Elemental Trilogy, #1)The Perilous Sea (The Elemental Trilogy, #2)
I have just started reading Uprooted by Naomi Novik which I have heard absolutely amazing things about so I am very excited to get into it. I then plan to read The Burning Sky and it's sequels by Sherry Thomas, I am not sure of the exact plot of these but I love the covers and I know they're fantasy (clearly enough to go on with). 

Book Beginning and Friday 56:
Uprooted
"Our Dragon doesn't eat the girls he takes, no matter what stories they tell outside our valley." - Page 1
"I tried to be glad for her. I was mostly sorry for myself. It was hard to be alone and cold in my high tower room, locked away." - Page 56
It's good to know he isn't going to eat her but she is still having quite the self-pity party by page 56. Page 56 is also full of descriptions of food which is making me really quite hungry. Thanks book. I love what I've read of this so far. 


You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading

  4. I've heard good things about Uprooted too. I burned out on her Temeraire series with a couple of books to go. But I think I'll give this one a try. I have a fairy tale this week - The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry. Happy reading!

  5. Sounds interesting. The looming shadow on the cover hints at ominous things to come.

    1. It's not the same cover I've seen elsewhere but I think I may actually prefer this one. It's very representative of the story so far!
