The Friday 56 (187) & Book Beginnings: The Case Study of Vanitas volume 5 by Jun Mochizuki

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice where every Friday you pick a book and turn to page 56 or 56%, and select a sentence or a few, as long as it's not a spoiler. For the full rules, visit the the page HERE

Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading.



Synopsis from Goodreads...
Long ago, France was terrorized by The Beast of Gévaudan, who indiscriminately murdered hundreds. Before the creature could be stopped, the Beast vanished into thin air. Now, on the streets of nineteenth century Paris, news breaks of the Beast's gruesome return. As Noé and Vanitas rush to learn more about the Beast and its connection to vampirekind, none other than the Holy Knight, Astolfo, and Jeanne, the Hellfire Witch, stand in their way...


Beginning: ""--Hm? Go back for your hat and parasol?""

56: ""We'll take this to Gévaudan.""


Comments: I finally read volume five of The Case Study of Vanitas, and I really enjoyed it. What are you reading this week?
