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 the opening line for P.S. I Like You by Kasie West! As I'm writing this, I just finished my second book for the Make Me Read It Readathon, and this was the third pick! I hope to finish it in a day, simply because it is a cute and not too long (326 pages) contemporary. Plus, it helps that I'm in a total contemporary mood after my last three or so books being fantasy! This beginning really drew me in, and the only reason I didn't continue reading is because I have an early morning ahead of me! P.S. I Like You is about a boy and a girl who start talking on a desk. Lily scribbles her favorite song lyrics onto her desk, and the next day there is a response! It sounds just super cute and might get pretty teen-angsty too, which I'm all for.
So those were my Book Beginnings and Friday 56! Have you read either P.S. I Like You or The Reader? What did you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
