FR·Call Down the Hawk

Friday reads was invented by The Candid cover

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.

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.

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.

Book Beginnings

The matriarch of House Kore adjusted the Christmas present in her arms.

Quick look into the past, before things went to shit. I love when authors consider we haven’t suffered enough and so they give us more tragic backstory

The Friday 56

“We need to–” started (NAME), but a crashing sound drowned out her words as a stone hand the size of an armchair pummeled through the ceiling.

WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING I need to keep reading

I’m picking this back up and not putting it down until I’m done! It took me a couple of chapters to get into it (because I kept getting distracted with other new releases) but this time I’ll finish it!

Book Beginnings

The memo stank of barrel-printing ik and bad news.

The Friday 56

Some things you can’t shed like an old coat, Doctor.

Book Beginnings

Ask me to spin the finest yarn or thread, and I can do it faster than any man– even with my eyes closed. Yet ask me to tell a lie, and I will stumble and falter to think of one.

I immediately trust her and want her to be happy. Natural honesty is just so precious to me, I hope nothing bad happens ever but I’m not holding my breath….

The Friday 56

“I saw how protective [he] is of you. Yet he respects you.”

Hmmmmmmm who could this be about???


This book is so amazing that I’m reading it in just two days. The main character is brave and believable, the love interest is tall-dark-and-handsome done right, and the world building is compelling.
