Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted each week by Rose City Reader. It’s a chance to share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading this week.
This week I’m starting The Crowns of Croswald, a middle grade fantasy by D. E. Night.
The village, well, it had a lot of secrets. And its secrets need to be kept safe. So, the town’s name was like a key – those who knew the name could find the village. Let’s call it the Town.
I’m looking forward to this! A girl who comes into magical power she didn’t know she had. An evil queen. A hidden history. Tropes aplenty, and I can’t wait to see what D. E. Night does with them.

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. It starts each Friday and runs through the following Thursday. Each week, there’s a new prompt featuring a book-related question. It’s designed to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, make new blogging friends, and gain followers.
Oh, that’s easy. The Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman would make an EXCELLENT Netflix series. It’s got Librarians, who travel to alternate universes to secure and protect various works of fiction. It’s got dragons. And fae. And magic. And chaos. And secret agents. And mysterious societies. It is GLORIOUS, and, if done properly, would be captivating on screen. Netflix, let’s make this happen!
