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.
I am still planning on reading the rest of the Throne of Glass series and I am so close to finishing the first book and I am loving it so much. I also plan on reading The Testing which Clare got me from the library the other day and it sounds like a good book.
"The shutters swinging in the storm winds were the only sign of her entry. No one had noticed her scaling the garden wall of the darkened manor house, and with the thunder and the gusting wind off the nearby sea, no one heard her as she shimmied up the drainpipe, swung onto the windowsill, and slithered into the second-floor hallway." - Crown of Midnight
"To him, that meant showing up in a black tunic." - Crown of Midnight
Our brother is coming back from University tomorrow which means I might not be reading much this weekend. We'll also be watching the new Star Wars movie which is exciting! I am currently reading Across a Star-Swept Sea which is the companion to For Darkness Shows the Stars. I think I may be enjoying this more than FDStS if only because I love Scarlet Pimpernel retellings. I am then planning to read Zodiac by Romina Russell which I have heard good things about and after that I will be starting my Christmas reads with Christmas in the Snow by Karen Swan which I am hoping will be great!
