I am not planning on reading many books this weekend but I do plan on reading most of the Anne of Green Gables books. I finished Anne of Green Gables on Tuesday and then moved on to Anne of Avonlea which I finished yesterday.
Time for a Throne of Glass re-read in preparation of Queen of Shadows which will be released on Tuesday. I should have plenty of time to read this weekend and Monday so I'm hoping that I'll be finished just in time for Queen of Shadows to arrive. I'm going to read them starting with The Assassin's Blade so I can read them in order of events. But if you are new to the series you should definitely read them in release order.
Friday 56 and Book Beginnings:
Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice. The idea is to grab a book, turn to page 56 (or 56% in an e-reader 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 reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
"Do you remember what Dr Davis said last Sunday evening - that the sorrows God sent us brought comfort and strength with them, while the sorrows we brought ourselves, through folly or wickedness, were by far the hardest to bear?" - Page 56
" 'Thanks be, I'm done with geometry, learning or teaching it,' said Anne Shirley, a trifle vindictively, as she thumped a somewhat battered volume of Euclid into a big chest of books, banged the lid in-triumph, and sat down on it, looking at Diana Wright across the Green Gables garret, with grey eyes that were like a morning sky."
I love the Anne of Green Gables series and cannot wait to read all of them!
"Ahead of them were the golden lights of Skull's Bay. Hoots and cheers echoed across the water. Word had certainly spread about the free ale.She smiled slightly. "Get read to unleash hell."" - Page 56
The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas
"After a year of slavery in the Salt Mines of Endovier, Celaena Sardothien was accustomed to being escorted everywhere in shackles and at sword-point. Most of the thousands of slaves in Endovier received similar treatment - though an extra half-dozen guards always walked Celaena to and from the mines. That was expected by Adarlan's most notorious assassin. What she did not usually expect, however, was a hooded man in black at her side - as there was now."
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Back where it all began. I remember discarding whatever I had been reading when I read the first page of Throne of Glass and then being completely absorbed. I'm hoping I still feel the same way now!
Wooo, I'm currently reading Throne of Glass and TOG also happens to be my Friday 56!! What a coincidence :)ReplyDelete
Hope you girls have a lovely weekend!
Here's my Friday 56!
I hope you enjoy ToG! And I hope you have a great weekend too, thanks for visiting!Delete
I haven't read either of those series and I'm ashamed of myself! Anne of Green Gables is one of those classics which I feel like I should read, and Throne of Glass is just one of those series which everyone has gotten me so excited for! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!ReplyDelete

Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorites and Throne of Glass is amazing. I am just counting the days until Queen of Shadows is released. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorites as well. Clare had planned on reading the Throne of Glass series again so that when she finished them Queen of Shadows would arrive the same day and she can just read it straight away. Thanks for visiting!Delete
