May 13th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Welcome to Friday the 13th.  And that means it is time for Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring a YA fantasy book, which I just finished a couple of hours ago.  I'm aiming for a review on Sunday.  Let the Wind Rise by Shannon Messenger is the third in the trilogy.

I've been waiting 2 years for this book to come out, and it was worth the wait.  But I'll save the rest of my review for Sunday.  Meanwhile, here's how the book begins:

They're calling it "California's Worst Natural Disaster in Decades."
But there was nothing "natural" about it.

And from page 56:

"So...basically you want to torture her," I clarify.
"Only for a few minutes.  Don't tell me she doesn't deserve it."

Have a great weekend!


  1. This series was always just okay for me. So, I don't know when or if I'll ever get to Let the Wind Rise. But, I'm glad you seem to have enjoyed the book. :-)

  2. I don't think I've ever read anything by this author. I'll have to check into this fantasy series. I am spotlighting The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye this week. Happy reading!

  3. You had me at waiting two years for the book! I'm going to go check out the other books.
