Friday Reads 27th January 2017

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 Diabolic

Book Beginning:
"Everyone believed Diabolics were fearless, but in my earliest years, all I knew was fear."
 Friday 56:
"I'd now experienced weakness, and between hiding my strength or possessing genuine frailty, I vastly preferred to hide."
I am nearly at the end of The Diabolic and I am vastly enjoying it. Nemesis is just as ruthless as I wanted her to be and such a great, interesting character. I am not as in love with the side characters (except Sidonia and Tyrus) but I am excited to see how everything resolves.

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

My Friday Book is Faithful , by Alice Hoffman.

I started this one and had to set it aside to catch up on a review or two. Need to get back to it.

Diabolics??? Call me intrigued! :-) Happy weeekend!

Roberta said...

Whoa, that cover image is so intense. I like the way the first sentence reveals the narrator is a diabolic without coming out and saying it.

Gorgeous cover! I enjoyed the excerpts, too, even though this one is not my usual read. Thanks for sharing.

Here's mine: “THE FUTURES”

The Friday56 excerpt definitely ties in with the book's cover! I'm curious about the "Diabolics."
My Friday post features The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

It really was - very brutal and exciting!

Clare Stone said...

It was - and the cover is so gorgeous!

Clare Stone said...

Yes! I've had it pushed to one side for the longest time thanks to review books but I am glad I finally picked it up!

Clare Stone said...

Such an interesting concept! And so hard to pull off an interesting and ruthless character that is still likable but she manages it!

Clare Stone said...

Yes it does! Not info-dumpy which I like!

Clare Stone said...

Its been a while since I had read any dystopian/sci-fi and I had forgotten how fun they are!

Clare Stone said...

It was so good - very original and exciting!

Clare Stone said...

It was great! Hope you enjoy it! :)

Clare Stone said...

Yay! It's really good!

Katherine P said...

I've seen this around but know almost nothing about it. I do like the sound of the teasers so I'll definitely have to find out more about it and hopefully pick up a copy!

Clare Stone said...

I definitely do recommend it - it was such an exciting, fast-paced read!
