Book Beginnings/ Friday 56 #17

Sorry everyone. I skipped doing this post last week to post my VERY FIRST Giveaway! But I’m back and ready to share!


  • Grab a book, any book.
  • Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
  • Find any sentence (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you.
  • Post it.

Sever by Lauren DeStefano

Reed is either a genius of completely mad, or both. But if he’s mad, then I am too…



Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

Talented by Sophie Davis

An earsplitting wail punctured the silent night, shattering the illusions of my dream world and bringing me back to reality.

My Thoughts

Definitely an intriguing start to this novel. Had me wondering what on earth was going on!

      It was a REALLY good book! Still haven’t managed to collect my thoughts to write the review yet, but it’ll be up soon.

    Now that’s awful spooky to hear someone scream outside during the night. Would I go outside to see what happened? Probably, I would call the police to come fast.

  3. Those are both great teasers… They both make me want to know what the heck is going on.

      Sever was great! And I’m only about halfway through Talented (I’m reading really slowly lately for some reason), but it’s pretty good so far.
