The rules are simple for both. For the Friday 56, we turn to page 56 or 56% in our e-reader and highlight a passage of any book! Book Beginnings is where you feature the first sentence (or so) of a book and give your thoughts and impressions.
This is from page 56 of Passenger by Alexandra Bracken! It is my current read (as I'm typing this I'm on page 100). The quote I chose is right when a part of the ship breaks, leaving the female heroine, Etta, overboard.
This is the opening sentence to Frankstein by Mary Shelley! I have to read this book over the summer for my AP English class my upcoming junior year. I hope I like it!
And that is my Friday 56 and Book Beginnings! They're both pretty dark scenes, but I'm liking what I'm reading. If you participated this week, feel free to link them along with your comments. :)
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
Happy Reading! (And Friday!)
