Friday Reads 4th March 2016

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.


The Dark Days Club (Lady Helen, #1)Rebel Mechanics (Rebel Mechanics, #1)Curio (Curio #1)
I am currently about halfway through The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman and really enjoying it. It feels kind of Mortal Instruments-ey but it's also quite original and I love the main character. I'm not fully sold on the side characters yet but I'm getting there. When I've finished that, which I hope to do today, I plan to read Rebel Mechanics by Shanna Swendson, I've been interested in this for a while but I haven't really seen any reviews for it so I'm not sure what to expect. And then if I have time I would like to read Curio by Evangeline Denmark which, again, I am very excited for!

Book Beginning:

"If I'd let myself think about what might lie ahead for me, I'd have been terrified." - Rebel Mechanics

Friday 56:

"" Leave that boy alone!" I shouted as I ran. "He's not responsible for what's in the newspaper." - Rebel Mechanics

Both of these intrigue me though they aren't perhaps overly exciting. I'd love to know what's in the newspaper and who is responsible and why she is terrified. I also now know that each of the chapters is titled, for example chapter 1 is "In which I face bandits and butlers" and I am a sucker for titled chapters!


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

    1. I don't know what it is about titled chapters but they're just great. I think Rick Riordan wins the titled chapter contest (if there was one!) but the chapters in this all intrigue me! Thanks for visiting!

    1. All I know about it is that its an alternate history where Britain used magic to avert the American Revolution but that sounds intriguing to me!

  4. I really don't know what to think. Usually a cover talks to me, but I only hear a whisper from Curio, the others are silent. Thanks for sharing some new to me books and have a great weekend.
