Book Beginnings on Friday is hosted by Rose City Reader. Share the opening quote from the book.
The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Find a quote from page 56.
Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't
select their favorite, coolest, or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now---
Title: When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
Books Beginning...The epigraph:
"To the boys who get called girls,
the girls who get called boys,
and those who live outside these words.
To those called names,
and those searching for names of their own.
To those who live on the edges,
and in the spaces in between.
I wish for you every light in the sky."
"Aracely washed out a blue glass jar, the inside milky from when she'd used it during a lovesickness cure. The mix of water and egg always resisted coming clean."
This is a lovely, lovely book I just finished reading earlier this week. I think the epigraph sets the reader up perfectly for what is to come in the story, or at least a branch of the story.
I've taken a hiatus from Book Beginnings and Friday 56, not posting since late October but I am back with a new delightful book I can highly recommend.
I really like the cover for this book. The 56 is also great. Thanks for sharing. :-)ReplyDelete
Everything about this -- from the cover to the blurbs -- just makes my heart smile. Definitely one I need to find!ReplyDelete
It does sound charming. I'd definitely keep reading.ReplyDelete

Sounds like a beautiful story. I like the opening a lot, and the 56 excerpt makes me curious about the character who creates the lovesickness cure.ReplyDelete
My Friday post features BEYOND THE ASHES.
This sounds interesting!ReplyDelete

I want to read this book so bad. Where has the year gone, I had so many reading plans! I really liked her novel The Weight of Feathers and expect this one to be just as wonderful. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
I am not so good with magical realism, but this one sounds kind of interestingReplyDelete
