Book Beginnings/Friday 56 #7


Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City ReaderShe invites you to share the first sentence or so of your current read and share your thoughts about the sentence, initial impressions of the book and anything else it inspires. 

Friday 56 is hosted by Fredas VoiceThis is where you grab the book you are reading, turn to page 56 (or 56% on your ereader) and post a few sentences. 


I am currently reading Renegades by Marissa Meyer



We were all villains in the beginning.

I knew this book was going to be about heroes and villains but this opening line just confirms it for me. It's rather intriguing. How was everyone a villain? What happened to change that? All questions that I want answering!

He grimaced, recognizing his own pathetic attempts to defend his pride. But who was he kidding? He had underestimated an opponent who should not have been underestimated. 

I only started reading Renegades last night but already it's unlike any book I've read before. For starters it's about superheroes and two it's got a unique plot and I have a feeling I am going to be hooked on this book.

  1. I haven't read Marissa Meyer since she published her last book in the Lunar Chronicles series, but I love the opening line and 56 of Renegades! Seems like I'm going to have to check this one out from the library. :) Thanks for sharing!

    Here are my Friday 56 and Book Beginnings!
