Friday Reads 2nd December 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! 

Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling, #1)
Book Beginning:
"In an effort to reduce the overwhelming incidence of insanity and serial killing in the Psy population, the Psy Council decided, in the year 1969, to instigate a rigorous program called silence."

Friday 56:
"Good thing he'd never liked easy prey."
This book (the whole series actually) came highly recommended to me from Veronika at Regal Critiques. And so far it is living up to that recommendation. It's been a while since I've read a paranormal romance but it's a genre I used to enjoy a lot. The prologue (which is one and a half pages) was basically world building. Which could have felt clunky but actually worked really well and means there isn't constant info-dumping throughout the story. I am almost finished with this first book and I will definitely be continuing the series.

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

Probably not for me, but I am fascinated by the sound of it, nevertheless. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE OTHER WIDOW”

I love this series. I should go back and read the first book again while I'm waiting for the newest to be released. I am reading Enemy Games by Marcella Burnard from my TBR mountain this week. Happy reading!

This sounds interesting. I haven't heard of it before, so thanks for mentioning it.

I don't often read paranormal, so this book may not be one I'd enjoy. But I do like the beginning. The cover is striking too.
My Friday post features THE LAST ANNIVERSARY.

Quite the cover, and PSy stuff can be interesting. I like reading about psy powers, if that what it's about.

Clare Stone said...

I wound up really loving it!

Clare Stone said...

I'm so glad I started this series! Didn't know there was a new one being released that's exciting!

Clare Stone said...

It's a really enjoyable read!

Clare Stone said...

I generally enjoy it when I do read it but I don't read it often!

Clare Stone said...

Yeah basically, they have different categories of Psy - like telekinesis etc. It was really interesting and apparently gets explored more deeply in future books!
