Friday Books - How We Found You

Friday comes around more quickly than it ever has before. Is it that I'm busy? Or is this true for everyone. The days fly by faster. Every Friday with a sigh that I'm not doing more reading...


BookBeginnings, hosted by Rose City Readerand The Friday 56 - hosted by Freda’s Voice both host sites for Friday link ups, where we discover more books, and make friends. Both involve sharing excerpts from a current book - the beginning and - you guessed it - page 56.


I've got a cracker this week. (Click the cover for the Goodreads blurb)















I know JT Lawrence from The Underachieving Ovary, and the first book in this series - Why You Were Taken, and I love her writing. "A rabbit hole quilled with xlinks" is a new favourite quote of mine - just brilliant!






Go on, what's not to like?  A futuristic novel, set in my home city - Johannesburg. A tense, gripping page turning thriller,  great writing and loads of fun. Review just posted.

Oh, and did I mention that for a short while it's 99c on Amazon? (So is the first one, if you're anal like me, and you have to do these things in order.)

Have a lovely weekend, and hope you get some reading done. Tell me what in the comments, and I'll pop over.

Oh, your quotes are very intriguing. I see this is a second book which implies you enjoyed the first. I best look around for this one.

Someone else posted quotes from this book a few weeks ago. The beginning sounds like a familiar problem (getting lost surfing the internet) set in the future. Would like to see how it develops from there.

Sounds like an intriguing story.

Hi Bev!

Your quotes are great, but I think the book alone is intriguing enough. Great find!

Here's my current read: http://bit.ly/2qxXXYr

Sounds like a good dystopian read. Love the groovy cover too! I added you to the Linky. Happy weekend!
