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!
"Everyone believed Diabolics were fearless, but in my earliest years, all I knew was fear."
"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.
I'm glad you enjoyed this one. It seems like an interesting book.ReplyDelete
It really was - very brutal and exciting!Delete
I love that cover. So beautiful. This sounds like a great book.ReplyDelete
My Friday Book is Faithful , by Alice Hoffman.
It was - and the cover is so gorgeous!Delete
I started this one and had to set it aside to catch up on a review or two. Need to get back to it.ReplyDelete
My Friday 56 from Chasing Fireflies
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!Delete
Diabolics??? Call me intrigued! :-) Happy weeekend!ReplyDelete
Such an interesting concept! And so hard to pull off an interesting and ruthless character that is still likable but she manages it!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Yes it does! Not info-dumpy which I like!Delete
Gorgeous cover! I enjoyed the excerpts, too, even though this one is not my usual read. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Here's mine: “THE FUTURES”
Its been a while since I had read any dystopian/sci-fi and I had forgotten how fun they are!Delete
The Friday56 excerpt definitely ties in with the book's cover! I'm curious about the "Diabolics."ReplyDelete
My Friday post features The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
It was so good - very original and exciting!Delete
I'll be reading this one pretty soon! Thanks for sharing. :)ReplyDelete

It was great! Hope you enjoy it! :)Delete
Ok. I'm hooked. This one is going on my TBR list right now.ReplyDelete
Yay! It's really good!Delete
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!ReplyDelete
I definitely do recommend it - it was such an exciting, fast-paced read!Delete
