Book Beginnings and Friday 56

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the one you are currently reading.

Book: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Book Beginnings:
Friday 56:
There were patterns of tiny spots covering the wall and long, sickle-shaped stains on the floor. It was like living in a 3-D abstract painting.
My thoughts: I have discussed an alien invasion plan with my family...just in case. This book is really scaring me.


  1. A number of book bloggers I follow read this novel over the summer and they all enjoyed it! That's definitely a catchy opening, happy reading :)

  3. Sounds interesting - love the cover. Happy reading :)

  4. Those three words at the beginning definitely make me interested in reading more....I wonder what made her think of those three words as a novel beginning.

  5. Nice choice. This book has been on my TBR list since I first heard about it. Hope you enjoy it!
