Friday Reads 3rd February 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!

Wintersong
Book Beginning:
"Once there was a little girl who played her music for a little boy in the wood."

Friday 56:
"I knew that smile. I recognized it, and understood it as a challenge. Come rescue her, my dear, the smile said. Come and rescue her... if you can."
 Wintersong is one of my most anticipated releases of the year so I was so happy to be sent a copy from the publisher! I am loving the writing style and the atmosphere so far. It's so magical and sort of menacing - I feel like I am constantly on the edge of my seat whilst reading and can't stop thinking about it even when I'm not reading! This is released on the 7th (so just 4 more days to wait!!) and so far I definitely recommend picking it up! 

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

Sounds like the elements of a fairy tale with good vs evil.

Sounds interesting. I love the cover too. Books that start with "Once there was ..." make me want to curl up and read.
