It’s a book meme that mixes two already existing:Friday Reads

  • Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
  • The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.

Book Beginnings

I was seventeen when I brought a bird back to life.

And we’re starting with a reminder of just how powerful our main is. I love when we have lovable characters that can do the most unnatural stuff. It give the story such a delightful contrast of light and dark.

The Friday 56

After the whole… debacle that was our fucked-up courtship, my mother and father had invited Ryan out to lunch, telling me in no uncertain terms that I was not allowed to join them.

And that’s how you end up with a dead boyfriend letting your really protective parents go on a secret lunch with him…

WWW Wednesday

I’m not dead! (Yay) I’m finally mostly settled in Edinburgh so the first thing I needed to do was get back into a posting schedule. I promise notthing but I will try and post a few times each week. For now I’m sticking to memes and reviews though.

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words.

It’s basically to check in, see what I’m reading at real-time.

The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?

  • What did you recently finish reading?

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What Are You Reading Wednesday

I saw this meme back at The Introverted Booknerd:

What Are You Reading Wednesday was created by RhiannaMarissa, and Kendall. The idea is to create a space for book lovers to share, discuss, and recommend the books they are currently reading and loving.

1. Why did you decide to pick up this book–cover or content?

Content! I read the Raven Cycle books a few years ago and really enjoyed it, Ronan was even my favorite character so the posibility of an entire trilogy just about him was too good to pass up.

2. Who is your favorite character so far, and why?

I knind of answered that above… But ignoring the main character?

I really love Declan, he truies so hard to be a serious and productive member of society, while keeping his family safe. And he fails so hard at all of that…

3. Will you finish this one?

Definitely.

I’m dealing with finals at the moment, which is the only reason I didn’t finish this in two days. By the end of the week I’ll be done with it

4. This book reminds me of…

9361589In the sense that it’s whimsical and has different points of view that mix and separate along the story.

5. What type of read is this one? (Slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)

This is the kind of read that sucks you in and you don’t realise time is passing by as you read. You know the ones where you raise your head and suddenly it’s 3 am and you haven’t gone to bed yet.

This book is so delightfully weird! It has dreams and dreamers, an undreground blackmarket full of strange things and people, three brothers, and six girls who are actually just one split up.

I’m enjoying this even more than the original The Raven Cycle books (probably because Ronan’s always been my fave)

Book Beginnings

This is going to be a story about the Lynch borthers.

My favorite kind of story (and of brothers)

The Friday 56

“I don’t believe you,” he said out loud. “I have trust issues.”

Why is this so funny? Ronan doesn’t have an issue talking about his issues and I love him

Book Beginnings

When I dreamed,these pinpricks of light filtered through the trees of an old forest.

Dreams are so important on this series and we are starting off with one. I can already feel the angst pouring out of this one.

The Friday 56

If you speak even a word of what you see, then all the death that follows will be stained upon your fangs and claws as if you were the one who dealt the killing blow.

And this is on PAGE 56 of 478. We are getting right into it, aren’t we?

I’m almost finished and it gets even more intense. I can feel a massive book hungover coming my way, but it’s totally worth it

TJ Klune has no chill and he wants to murder us all

36205455. sx318 Yes, I’m reading in Spanish and it feels weird.

Funfact! The title in Spanish actually translates to Council of Shadows wich does sound slightly more badass

All translations are my own

Book Beginnings

Delilah Bard had a gift for finding trouble.

She does and I love her. I’m so excited to get back into this world!

The Friday 56

Life on Grey London had taught her how to rest without ever really sleeping.

Than sounds… healthy… Nobody said pirates were the models for mental health but I do hope that Lila can get better while living on the ship; maybe learn to relax a little bit.

On Audiobook and it was amazing. Here’s my full review but the short of it is: 5/5 Stars would read again and can’t wait for the sequel!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Finally coming out this month after a lot of grief because of shitty people trying to scam the author::

This bbook is SO GOOD though. I can’t stop reading it, it’s super cute and hard hitting at the same time. Rosa has to deal with a feeling of disconect with her cuban roots while planning a festival to save her town, falling in love witth a cute guy with a boat and deciding where to go to college.

I’m actually listening to the audiobook, which you can also listen to if you have a Spotify account!

1. Why did you decide to pick up this book–cover or content?

Cover and Author. As you may or may not know, this month I’m taking part in the Latinxathon in honor of Latinx Heritage Month and I’ve been seeing this book on my twitter feed for so long that this was the first to pop into my mind when crafting a TBR. I actually didn’t know what it was about until I started reading/listening

2. Who is your favorite character so far, and why?

Is it too cliché to say Rosa? She is just so sunny and ultra-organized and kind that I love her

3. Will you finish this one?

A thousand times YES and there’s a high probability that I’ll reread it soon as well, it’s just that good

4. This book reminds me of…

My own experience growing up latina in another country, trying to find a sense of identity and being a teenager

5. What type of read is this one? (Slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)

Cannot put it down. I’ll most likely finish it by the end of this week so you’ll get a review either next monday or the following
