FRIDAY 56 & Book Beginnings 24.06.16.

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

Good morning everybody ! I'm so glad it is almost weekend haha. I really want some more sleep, so tired. I want to lay in bed so much right now.. Or just a pillow and a nice blanket and I'm gone right here at work.

But first, today another book beginnings and page 56 ! I'm not really sure which one to choose this week, because I just finished a book and I haven't really started on a new one yet. But there is one book that I want to start, sooo we're just gonna go for that one !

FIRST Sentence.
"The sky is blacker than I've seen it at noon. Normally at this time I'd be inside eating a pastry from the kitchen and looking over my lessons. But today isn't normal. It's anything but."

"I... I've never seen you in something like this."
It's true. I haven't even seen myself in something like this. Instead of playing dress-up with similar gowns from my mother's closet, I bound myself and donned leather armor and scratchy trousers. Certainly not by my choice, but it happened just the same. Now I stand here in clothing from my county, the living God in my heart, and a loyal soldier at my side, and I feel more like a princess that I ever have. Only one thing is missing."

And once again, I'm not going to tell you much more about it, so if you're interested you should look it up and get started !


  1. I haven't heard of this one before, but I do like the writing of the beginning and the 56.

  2. You are in for a good weekend with this one. Enjoy. Here's my Friday Book.

  3. I'll admit, this isn't one I would have given a second thought. However, the BB and 56 were pulling me in. Now I want to know what the one thing missing is! I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine...

  4. This one is new to me but sounds like something I would enjoy. I hope you enjoy it too. I am featuring Soldier by Julie Kagawa this week. Happy reading!

  5. Another curious book that makes me want to know more. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “SWEETBITTER”

  6. This looks interesting. I love the beginning. It makes me wonder what has happened to keep the day from being normal.

  7. Strong excerpt. Now I'm curious. And the cover is stunning.

  8. I like that beginning, and I'm wondering what makes today different from others. I'd like to learn more about this princess!
    My Friday post features THE LITTLE FRENCH GUESTHOUSE.

  9. I'm intrigued. Sounds like someone's a strong young woman. Happy Reading!

  10. I'm curious for more. Definitely!! Happy weekend!

  11. I haven't heard of this before, but I think I'll have to add it to my tbr. The snippets sound great!
