TGIF – Friday 56 and Friday Finds

3 Flares Filament.io 3 Flares ×

TGIF! For whatever reason the weeks just keep feeling longer and the weekends shorter (and at the same time I still can’t believe January is almost over). I am so very much looking forward to a weekend of relaxation and reading (which knowing my life probably won’t happen… but I can dream anyway).

I feel like lately life has had a funny way of popping in and ruining every ounce of my free time (which I would prefer to spend reading and blogging… but I suppose real world responsibilities come first). So, this Friday I’ decided I wanted to do something fun and start participating in some memes; (and then I’ll be a good girl and finish some reading and write some reviews during my **crosses fingers** relaxing weekend).

The Friday 56

Friday 56 Hosted by: Freda’s Voice

Rules (from Freda’s Voice):
*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.
*Go back to Freda’s Voice (just click on The Friday 56 logo) add your (url) post in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

My Friday 56 is from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

 “I recognized the immaculate sheet of blond hair on the driver’s side even before I saw her face. Anna, naturally. Then I recognized the sour expression of her omnipresent companion, Adien, as he emerged from the passenger seat.”

Friday Finds

friday findsHosted by: MizB at Should be Reading

Friday finds is a weekly meme so bloggers (and readers.. just comment if you don’t have a blog) can share all the wonderful things they’ve found and added to their TBR list throughout the week.

(As usual) I’ve managed to add more than I’ve managed to remove from my ever-growing (I really do try to hold myself back sometimes) TBR list. Some of the them I’ve been recommended, some have come from Goodreads scavenger hunts (my latest addiction), and some of them (I know, I know, I shouldn’t be this vain.. please don’t judge me) I just can’t help being drawn in by their captivating covers!

So here are my finds for this Friday:

After Eden      Banished

Echo      Existence

Mark of the Princess      Rapunzel Untangled

The End Games      ACID


I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!

      That’s what I thought, especially since I haven’t quite gotten to page 56 yet myself!
