November 17th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Welcome to Friday and another edition of Book Beginning and Friday 56.

I've got another Middle Grade book tonight, this time a fantasy book - Nightfall by Shannon Messenger.


I've been reading this book all week.  I hope that's excused since it in 800 pages.  I'm almost to page 600, so I should finish it this weekend.  It's the sixth in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, and it is so good.  Not that I'm surprised since I've enjoyed all the books in this series.
The previous book ended with a cliffhanger, and this one picks up moments later.  Don't worry, this isn't really a spoiler:

"You remember me?"
The question slipped from Sophie's lips before she could stop it, and the weighted words seemed to hit the floor of the messy bedroom with a thud.

Moving on to page 56, we find this:

"I can't let anything happen to you," she said quietly.  "I could never live with that guilt."

If you are looking for a great middle grade series and you haven't checked out this one yet, I highly recommend it.  I'll have my full review up next Sunday (the Sunday after Thanksgiving).


  1. I read some MG and really enjoy them. Just finished The River Keepers by Michael F Stewart.

  2. It sounds really good, but man that's a biggin' for MG. It would HAVE to be good. LOL. Happy weekend!

  3. 800 pages. Ah, the Harry Potter effect! I had the first in this series on my TBR mountain for a while but donated it unread in one of my shelf purges. I may have to get another copy and give it a try. This week I am spotlighting The Human Division by John Scalzi. Happy reading!

  4. I really like the cover, wow what a read though!

  5. Like the look of this one. Thanks for sharing.

  6. This looks like it'll be a good one!
