Friday 56 and Book Beginnings: The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater

This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice
These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

Please join us over at RoseCityReader 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.

All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love's death. She doesn't believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.

Book Beginning:
Richard Gansey III had forgotten how many times he had been told he was destined for greatness.
Kind of a boring opening sentence, I really wish that I read this book sooner. But it's not taking too long to remember what happened in the previous book.

My 56:
And here she was in a blackened forest with Piper Greenmantle and a demon.
What? I have no idea what is happening here.


  1. While I do like the Stiefvater's writing style, this series is just okay for me. Enjoy the book!

  2. I'm not familiar with this series. Here is my Friday 56:

  3. Ooooooh, great choice! I haven't read this one yet; it's waiting on my Kindle ever so patiently, while I'm droooooooling and dying because I haven't picked it up! I really ought to try and read it soon. Thank you so so much for sharing!

    Here is my Friday 56, if you're interested in checking it out! No pressure or worries at all if you're not, though. Happy book-ing to you in the near future, and happy Friday! <3

  4. I'm getting ready to finally start this series. Can't wait!

  5. I still need to read the second book. I have it but I wasn't crazy about the first book. Hopefully it gets better as it goes along?
    Happy weekend!
