Friday Reads 8th April 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.
Clare is in Italy at the moment with our brother so she hasn't really had a lot of spare time to read so she should be back on the blog soon. I hope I am doing a good job on the blog while she is away.

Ann:

A Need So Beautiful (A Need So Beautiful, #1)City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)A Tale of Two Cities
I am currently still reading A Need So Beautiful which I haven't really read much of as I haven't been feeling very well recently. I am also reading City of Bones  for the read-along which I am making sure to read ever day. Then I am reading my classic for the month which is A Tale of Two Cities which I am enjoying so far.


Book Beginning:
'I sit on the front steps of St. Vincent's Cathedral and pick at the moss nestled in the cracks of the concrete. I'm waiting for Sarah - as usual. She begged me all through calculus to go shopping with her, even though she knows I don't have the money for it.' - A Need So Beautiful

Friday 56:
' "Don't pull out the 'honey'. That doesn't work on me." ' - A Need So Beautiful


I like this book beginning cause it gets the book of to a good start and it tells you what two of the characters are like in the first two sentences which is good.
I also like this Friday 56 because although it is short it is also very good and I don't know what but when I was looking for a quote this one just jumped out at me.


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

Sorry to hear you've been feeling bad. I can never read when I'm under the weather either. I like the look of A Need So Beautiful and I've recently discovered that I don't loathe Dickens after years of thinking I did! I need to add Tale of Two Cities to my list of books to read.

Sounds like a good one to snuggle in with. Hope you feel better soon:)
