Book Beginnings & The Friday 56 #1

Happy Friday everyone! I’m going to be participating in Book Beginnings hosted by Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice!

Book Beginnings &the Friday 56

Book Beginnings: 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.

The Friday 56: Grab a book, any book. Turn to page 56 or 56% in an eReader. Find any sentence, or a few and Post it!

This week my sentence(s) are from Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr.

Carnival of Souls

Prologue: “The man-witch- who’d summoned Selah was nothing like what she’d expected. In truth, he looked no different than many daimons she’d met: implacable expression and a musculature that would serve him well in one of Marchosias’ fighting competitions. It was only his eerie blue-and-gold witch eyes that revealed his true nature-and those eyes were fixed on her.”

Page 56: “Mallory preferred to do her morning run in the quiet hours just before sunrise. Once people were headed to work or school, she felt self-conscious. They rarely commented on her odd attire, but they looked.”

I really find these two excerpts a little funny because they don’t sounds like they come from the same book!
