Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice, the idea is to grab a book, turn to page 56 (or 56% in an e-book) 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 currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence and impressions about the book.
I am just about to start the second book in the victorian mystery series which is Death at Gallows Green. I really enjoyed the first one so I am hoping for good things from this onw. I have a couple of plans this weekend but I am mostly free so I am also planning to read or at least start the Mirabelle Bevan series.
"The gentle southern breeze that riffled the fresh green grass of the Essex meadows was mild and fragrant." - Death at Gallows Green
"Kate was so astonished that she could only stare. "Do you often talk to mice?" she managed finally."It depends upon whether I have anything to say. I more often talk to hedgehogs."" - Death at Gallows Green
The book beginning seems very placid which, from reading mysteries before, tends to mean something bad is going to happen! I love the 56, the whole page is filled with ridiculousness, I believe this is a conversation between the main character and Beatrix Potter which is exciting because I grew up reading Beatrix Potter!
