Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 (6 March)

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. 

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.

So both my Book Beginning and my Friday 56 are from The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.  A book that has been on my TBR list for ages and I've finally got around to reading it.

My Book Beginning:

"First the colours. Then the humans. That's usually how I see things. Or at least, how I try."
 My Friday 56:

"All was dark and hazy, and small chips of rain were starting to fall."


  1. I have been wanting to read this one! Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “THE DENIM BLUE SEA”

  2. I have seen this before and LOVE the cover. I would definitely read this and hope you are enjoying it. :-)

    1. Only just started it this morning but loving it so far

  3. Aah this is one which I have picked up twice so far and not gotten through, for some reason! I absolutely love the prose, it's beautiful, but somehow it didn't grab my attention straight away!
    Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have an amazing weekend!

    1. I forced myself to finish it. Like you said, the prose is lovely but it takes a long time to get nowhere. In retrospect, I should have given up on it and saved myself the time.

  4. I've been wanting to read this. Now even more so! Click on my name for my Beginning and 56.

  5. This has been on my TBR for ages too. Good for you for settling down to read it! Hope you enjoy it. I really like the excerpts. I definitely need to pick this one up soon!

  6. I read this book quite a while ago and was completely captivated by it. Now the movie is on my Netflix list. I hope you enjoy it too.
    My Friday post features WILLOW VALE.

    1. If I like it, I'm going to watch the movie too

  7. I have been wanting to read this book for so long! Maybe I will over spring break. Here is my book beginning post: http://pagesbypaige.com

  8. This one has been on my to-read shelf for far too long. I've heard amazing things about it!
