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!
"Staring at the sky in Bharata was like exchanging a secret."
""Keep some secrets to yourself, girl," she said quietly.
Not to worry, I wanted to say. Soon, only the ground will know my secrets."
So many secrets! I actually haven't reached page 56 yet so not sure what's going on in that scene but I am enjoying it so far. The writing is very dreamlike and beautiful and I am liking Maya as a character. The setting is amazing and I am looking forward to seeing where the story goes.
I enjoyed this one. I hope you do too. I have a thriller this week - The Damascus Thread by Matt Rees. Happy reading!ReplyDelete

My Friday post features THE REAL MOTHER.
There were such a lot of secrets, it was a general theme of the book!Delete
It looks like it would have a great setting! And I like that first quote.ReplyDelete
I loved the whole first paragraph, it was very beautiful and evocative - but it would have taken a while to type out! The setting was beautiful.Delete
I've heard a lot of good things about The Star Touched Queen. It sounds like a book I would enjoy.ReplyDelete
