FRIDAY 56 & Book Beginnings 22.04.16.

 
Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice and Friday Book Beginnings by Rose City Reader.

 

Good day everyone !! Yes it is Friday again, which means that it is almost weekend !! I’m not really going to do anything special this weekend.. so hopefully I have some time to continue my readings !! And I’m going out to dinner tomorrow, as a gift to two friends of ours who helped a lot with moving and painting. 
But first, before I get to enjoy my weekend of freedom, another Friday 56 & Book Beginnings !! 

So this week I will post about a book that I just started reading last night. I have wanted to pick this one up right after the release, but it just didn’t happen.. I hear a lot of positive things and when I was looking for a good book for today this one caught my attention. It caught my attention so much, that I had to continue reading it after I checked the first sentences and 56% haha. But well, enjoy this teaser ! ^^

 

FIRST Sentence.
“I sense the boy the moment he sets foot in the cave. For the first time in centuries, I stir.
I am smoke in the lamp, and I curl and stretch, shaking of the lethargy if five hundred years. I feel I have half turned to stone. The sound of his footsteps rattles me like a clap of thunder, and I bolt fully awake.”


 56%.
“Dimly, I realise someone nearby is shouting, and I pull myself out of my fog. Something is happening at the other end of the palace. A servant runs past me, laden with scrolls. I call to him, but he ignores me and hurries on. I follow swiftly, and the shouting grows louder. Then, over the sound, cuts a sharp and chilling wail.”


I hope I made you a bit curious about this book.. ^^ Have a great and wonderful weekend !!
