"The Golem's life began in the hold of a steamship. The year was 1899; the ship was the Baltika, crossing from Danzig to New York. The Golem's master, a man named Otto Rotfeld, had smuggled her aboard in a crate and hidden her among the luggage."

The Golem and the Jinni is a beautiful book about two creatures who end up in New York that have to learn how to survive a world they are completely unfamiliar with. They're both on a journey to find themselves. And maybe by chance meeting they will be able to help each other......
My Thoughts: Well if that doesn't pull you in right there, then I don't know what will.....
Just from reading that opening paragraph, I was completely sucked in. Captivated and absorbed! I wanted to know more, instantly. I had to know what this Golem was and how it's life begun!!
• currently I am still reading this book and honestly, It has not disappointed! I am still as captivated with the story as I was from the very beginning!!
The Friday 56:
►Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% on ebooks. Share a sentence (or more) that left an impression or that stood out.
"Body conscious yet humiliated. Buoyant but crippled. The Queen Supreme is the most beautiful anything I've ever seen so I just vogue there to watch from the doorway."
" Brandy is so attractive you could chop her head off and put it on blue velvet in the window at Tiffany's and somebody would buy it for a million dollars."
"Brandy Alexander looks her Burning Blueberry eyes at me in the doorway and says, "Posing girl, you are so God awful ugly. Did you let an elephant sit on your face or what?"'
"Brandy's voice, I barely hear what she says. At that instant, I just adore Brandy so much. Everything about her feels as good as being beautiful and looking in a mirror. Brandy is my instant royal family. My only everything to live for."

So I realize that I just shared pretty much all of page 57. YEA! 57!!! The reason I did this is because page 56 doesn't have anything exciting on it! It's all on the next page, page 57! So I broke the rules a little bit today, but you know what?! There's nothing wrong with breaking the rules sometimes, especially when there's no harm done. Plus it's FRIDAY Y'ALL!!!
Invisible Monsters is one of my top 10 favorite books. It is eccentric and wild, crude with some sophisticated funk! This was my first book by Chuck P. that I've read and certainly not my last! He is the master at "mind f**king"!
This book is about a fashion model who is disfigured from a horrendous "accident", leaving her hideous and incapable of speech. After being abandoned by fame, she meets Queen Supreme, Brandy Alexander, who shows her how to survive in such a bitter world.
This book was intense and vulgar but absolutely fun, twisted and surprising!
If your not one for vile language, improper relations, drugs, and whatever corrupt things in this world, then this book is not for you! LOL!!
Hopefully you guys enjoyed today's bookish memes and I'd love to hear what you guys think and what Your Book Beginnings and Friday 56 are!!
Have a fantastic Weekend and
Happy Reading Y'all!!!
