Friday Memes | Eona by Alison Goodman

 
The Friday 56 is hosted over at Freda's Voice! While the Book Beginning is hosted over at Rose City Reader. So, go check both of them out if you need more information. 
The rules of The Friday 56 are very simple:
- Grab a book, any book.
- Turn to page 56 or 56% if you are reading from an e-reader.
- Find any sentence or sentences that grab you then post them.
- Make sure to add your post url to the page which is at Freda's Voice, so all of the participants can see!
Book Beginnings:
Share the first sentence, or so, of the book you are currently reading. Share your thoughts and don't forget to also add your post url at Rose City Reader's page!

Eona by Alison Goodman



Loved Eon and I think I'm going to love this as well. I'm so curious on how this duology will end, even though I've been slightly spoiled in Goodreads. 

Book Beginnings
"The Dragons were crying."
*I skipped the preface, which is technically the real beginning, because it is a major spoiler of the end of Book 1, to those who are planning to read this duology.*

The Friday 56
"A silent, horrified exchange crossed between Haddo and the innkeeper; She is mad, it said. What do we do? I tugged at him again. Men were always quick to believe in the madness of women."

I want to finish this so bad and there's a three-day weekend coming up! Yes. School can just stand aside for a bit. Anyways, have a good Friday!

For this one I chose the:


The Cave from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince





Dark. Enclosed. No light source. Dark water. SURROUNDED BY WATER. Mysterious boats. INFERI. 
Cringing. 

Which place did you pick?

Bout of Books 11.0 | Wrap-Up!


The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. 
- From the Bout of Books team

Goals

1. Start and finish a series.
2. Participate in at least 3 challenges. Here is the schedule throughout the read-a-thon. 
3. Participate in a Twitter chat.
4. Daily updates here on my blog.
5. Reduce my TBR pile, meaning read at least 3 books. So, I need to read, read, read. 

Time I am Devoting to Reading: 3 hours a day at least. I do have school during the weekdays of the read-a-thon, and I have a lot of hard courses. So, I definitely need to up my game.
