Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 (27 March) plus Feature and Follow

Book Beginnings is a meme hosted every Friday by Rose City Reader where you 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.

My book beginning is from The Seer by R.R. Sechi:
The Seer"Stacey Daley was an up-and-coming TV presenter who now specialised in informative documentaries, which were filmed all around the world.  It was certainly true that she was beautiful, but her appeal in front of the camera was not just based on looks."
Really not sure about this book at all judging by the opening sentences.

The Friday 56 is a meme hosted every Friday by Freda's Voice.
The Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It's that simple.

My Friday 56 is also from R.R Sechi's The Seer:
"So you think it's some kind of spiritual war going on today?" Stacey interrupted."

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

The featured blogs this week are Bursting Book Reviews and Pinker Than Fictions Reviews.

bloglovinGFCThis week’s Question:
Have you ever been to BEA? If not, what’s stopping you? If you have, what was your best experience there?

No, I've never been.  I just had to Google it to see what it was as I hadn't heard of it.  It sounds so cool though!  However, it would be a tad expensive for me to go to as I live on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.  Maybe one day...

    1. I'm not too sure about it either but it's a short read so I'm just going to see how it goes

  3. I haven’t been to BEA either.

    1. The Seer sounds interesting. Not sure if I'll read it though.

    2. Thanks for visiting!
      The Seer isn't something I normally read so I'm still not sure of it

  6. The 56 sounds like part of an interesting conversation. Please check out my Beginnings and 56 http://lisaksbookthoughts.blogspot.com/

  7. Kind of a slow opening, but I'm interested. I'm curious about the answer to the question in your 56 excerpt. Hope you enjoy the book.
    My Friday post features GRACIANNA.

    1. It's actually a really confusing read.. but I'm almost finished so I'm just going to keep reading.
      Thanks for visiting :)

  8. It's too expensive for me as well. Thank you you for stopping by. :)

  9. The 56 sounds highly relevant to today.
    Happy weekend!

  10. The cover and the opening quote leave me a little flat but the page 56 quote makes me think the character isn't the sharpest gal.

    1. It really isn't the best book I've ever read. It's quite confusing, but it's only 120 pages so I'm sticking with it.
      Thanks for visiting.

  11. I hadn't heard of it either until this question. I live in the US so I might make it there eventually!

  12. I'd keep reading it just to find out what the story is. You mention it's a short read, so why not continue:)

    1. Yeah, I have kept reading and almost finished it. I'm finding it really confusing so far though.
