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

I read a sampler of Uprooted with the first three chapters, and I loved what I read there! :)

Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginning).

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!

Sounds interesting. The looming shadow on the cover hints at ominous things to come.
My Friday post features The Mirror.

Hmm I've never even heard of any of these books, but Uprooted actually sounds kinda interesting. Just added it to my TBR on goodreads. Thanks for showing me a new book! :)

I've heard nothing but good things about Uprooted. It's on my TBR, but I haven't bought a copy yet. Hopefully I'll get to that soon. My Friday Reads Half-Blood

It's definitely great so far! Everyone seems to love this book!

Clare Stone said...

Thanks for visiting!

Clare Stone said...

So far I've only read the first three chapters as well but I am loving it! :)

Clare Stone said...

I've been meaning to read the Temeraire series forever but somehow never got around to it. I definitely recommend Uprooted so far!

Clare Stone said...

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!

Clare Stone said...

It's been on mine for a long time, I am glad I finally gave in and bought it!

Clare Stone said...

It's great so far! And thank you I love adding to other people's reading lists :)

Clare Stone said...

I don't think I've seen even one bad or mediocre review of it so far, but it somehow took me so long to get my copy! Definitely recommend it and I hope you can get to it soon!

Clare Stone said...

That's good to hear! I'm enjoying it so far

Clare Stone said...

I really like this cover too! Thanks for visiting

Clare Stone said...

It's definitely great so far!

Clare Stone said...

Haha, you're welcome! I always tend to get books with good covers. I'm a definite judging-the-book-by-the-cover kind of person!

fredamans said...

That cover pulled me in, but even if it was coverless, you had me at dragon. :-)

Happy weekend!

Alicia AKernelofNonsense said...

I love Uprooted, I need to buy myself a copy soon. Hope you enjoy!

Clare Stone said...

I always want more dragon books in my life! For some reason I've read hardly any.

Clare Stone said...

I'm loving it too. Should finish it very soon because it's great!

Tangled N Books said...
