Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 (Jun 11)

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.

The Friday 56 is hosted by Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
Rules :
  • Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
  • Turn to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
  • Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
  • Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week's Book Beginnings and Friday 56 both come from Trudi Canavan's The Novice, the second book in her Black Magician trilogy.

For a few weeks each summer, the sky over Kyralia cleared to a harsh blue and the sun beat down relentlessly.
