Book Beginnings #33

For Book Beginnings, Rose City Reader invites us to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

For Friday 56 Freda's Voice asks you to turn to Page 56 in your book or 56% on your e-reader and pick a sentence. This is my first time

I am currently reading Caraval by Stephanie Garber.
It took seven years to get the letter right.
I got this book in my FairyLoot box, but even if I hadn't I'd still be picking it up. The marketing for this book has been insane, and I have seen it everywhere! So now I'm finally starting it.

These first lines are very mysterious. In fact, they're all that you'll find on the first page. I love how it's so short and to the point, setting the scene only the tiniest bit. And I want to read the letters!
"Wait-" Scarlett scanned the crisp snow a second time. Again it reminded her of a frosted cake. The kind she'd seen in bakery-windows, perfect and smooth, without so much as a Tella-size footprint in the snow.

"Where's my sister?"
Well. I need to hurry my way to page 56! I need to know what's happening.

I can't wait to really get stuck into this book. Have you read it? What are you reading this week?
