Friday Reads 10th March 2017

Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading!

Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King, #1)
Book Beginning:
"I hate having to dress like a man."

Friday 56:
"Even a man who's spent his whole life at sea has reason to fear her when she's angry. But not I. I sleep soundly. Listening to her music. The sea watches over me.She protects her own."
I haven't even started this book yet (Ann just pulled it out of my TBR jar) but I am so excited! I like the first sentence because it makes me think that maybe we will be getting that oh so elusive female character who is badass but still likes fashion? Cause I love clothes. And I just love the whole of the 56 (yes I cheated and took a whole paragraph instead of a sentence) but it's such a good paragraph! I am a sucker for anything to do with pirates in general so my hopes for this are pretty high! 

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

Intriguing cover, title, and first sentence. I like the 56, too. I want to get to know this character better!

I hope you enjoy this one. I've been debating about adding it to my TBR mountain. I have a YA fantasy this week - Hunted by Meghan Spooner. Happy reading!

Roberta said...

That first sentence grabbed me, too, although maybe for another reason. Sounds like a fun premise.
