Book Beginnings #55

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.

I am currently reading A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne M. Harris.
The year it turns, and turns, and turns. Winter to summer, darkness to light, turning the world like wood on a lathe, shaping the months and the seasons.
Quite poetic, yes? I love the writing, it drew me straight in to the story. I loved the questions I had at the end of the first chapter, and I desperately needed to read on to find out the Who and the What and the Why.
It has been a week since I left, without a word from William. Of course, he does not know where I am, or how to find me in the woods. But I know he will, soon.
This book though, it's excellent. I am fully immersed in the world and captivated by the characters.

My ARC does not have the illustrations, but I have picked this up in Waterstones and had a flick through. The illustrations are beautiful, breath-taking. You can view and buy some of them here on the illustrator's website.
