THE CANDID COVER came up with an amazing idea of combining 2 book memes together. Helena and I think this is an amazing and super creative idea to discover new books and to share the ones we love with everyone else!
The Two memes we will be featuring on Fridays will be none other than Book Beginnings, a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. And The Friday 56, hosted by Freda’s Voice, the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% on your e-reader. Find any non-spoiler sentence(s) and post. You can also link up your post on Freda’s Voice blog so others can visit you as well. Hope you enjoy❤
16-year-old Aurora Darlington is an orphan. Mistreated by her adopted family and bullied at school, she dreams of running away and being free. But when she is kidnapped and dragged through a portal into a magical world, suddenly her old life doesn’t seem so bad.
Avalonia is a dangerous land ruled by powerful mages and a cruel, selfish queen who will do anything to control all seven kingdoms—including killing anyone who stands in her way.
Thrust headlong into this new, magical world, Aurora’s arrival sets plans in motion that threaten to destroy all she holds dear.
With the help of a young fae, a magical pegasus, and a handsome mage, Aurora journeys across Avalonia to learn the truth about her past and unleash the power within herself. Kingdoms collide as a complicated web of political intrigue and ancient magic lead Aurora to unravel a shocking secret that will change her life forever.

First Line: “GET UP!” said a familiar but thoroughly irritating voice.
“Get up, you freak, and stop that awful shrieking.”
Impression: I was completely intrigued after reading this. I have to say, I already started this book las week and I just really can’t wait to read more of it. I’m really enjoying it so far and the second book is already out!🙌📚
The Friday 56:
“DAD,”I choke, but there’s no sound. I try again, feel the vibrations in my throat, the movement of my tongue and lips, but still no sound.”
This is from one of the books I’m planning to read soon. It’s a YA Fantasy and I have heard amazing things about it, I really can’t wait to read it😍 Can you guess the title of the book?😊
