Welcome back to this week's #Friday56 - What are you reading this week?
The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. There are only 4 rules:
As I'm reading two books at the moment, I decided to incorporate both into this week's post.
Up first is Legendary by Stephanie Garber - I was so excited to get this a day before the release (THANKS AMAZON!) and I'm so glad to be diving back into this rich, fantasy world. If you're interested, feel free to check out my review of Caraval and click on the photo below for the synopsis of Legendary! Warning: If you haven't read Caraval, the quote below is a bit of a spoiler!
Here's my chosen quote from page 56:
"Tella considered telling Scarlett the real reason she needed to play and win, but she doubted mentioning their mother would help her cause. Scarlett didn't talk about their mother. Ever. Whenever Tella had tried to talk about Paloma, Scarlett either changed the subject or ignored her completely. Tella used to think it was too difficult for Scarlett, but now Tella thought Scarlett's hurt had turned to hatred for the way their mother had left them."
I'm so happy to be back in Caraval and can't wait to see what happens next. How do you feel about Caraval? Are you reading Legendary?
My second book this week is Killing It by Asia Mackay.
Here's the synopsis:
Every working mum has had to face it.
The guilt-fuelled, anxiety-filled first day back in the office after maternity leave.
But this working mum is one of a kind.
Meet Alexis Tyler.
An elite covert agent within Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Her first project back is a high-stakes hit of global significance and the old boys network of government espionage is far from ready for the return of an operational mother. But woe betide anyone who ever tells Alexis Tyler 'you can't'.
She will have it all. Or she'll die trying . . .
And yes, she damn well will be home for bath time.
Here's my quote from 56%:
He had been my anchor. Holding me down, stopping me getting swept away in a flurry of big guns, bloodshed and baddies. And look at us now. We were a family.
What do you think? Would you read this?
