Friday Reads 12th August 2016

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! 

The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen, #1)
Book Beginning:
"Staring at the sky in Bharata was like exchanging a secret."

Friday 56:
""Keep some secrets to yourself, girl," she said quietly. 
Not to worry, I wanted to say. Soon, only the ground will know my secrets."

So many secrets! I actually haven't reached page 56 yet so not sure what's going on in that scene but I am enjoying it so far. The writing is very dreamlike and beautiful and I am liking Maya as a character. The setting is amazing and I am looking forward to seeing where the story goes. 

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

    1. I loved the whole first paragraph, it was very beautiful and evocative - but it would have taken a while to type out! The setting was beautiful.
