Friday Reads·The Gilded Wolves

Friday read was invented by The Candid cover, It’s a book meme that mixes two already existing:

  • 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

This book actually has three first sentences and since I didn’t know which one to choose you get all three:

From the prologue

The Matriarch of House Kore was running late for a dinner.

From “the archival records”

The art of Forging is as old as civilization itself.

From the first proper chapter

Séverin glanced at the clock: two minutes left.

The Friday 56

The day he said that was the day he realized some memories have a taste. That day, his mouth was full of blood, and so his promise tasted like salt and iron.

Book Beginnings

We al know this and I just loved actually reading the famous first sentence of the actual book::

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

The Friday 56

Elizabeth instantly read her feelings, and at that moment solicitude for Wickham, resentment against his enemies, and every thing else gave way before the hope of Jane’s being in the fairest way for happiness
