Book Beginnings & Friday56 -- The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow by Katherine Woodfine

I finally started reading Katherine Woodfine's The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow this week and I am SO in love with it! I know it's supposedly a middle grade/YA book, but anyone who loves shows like (the sadly cancelled) The Paradise and (soon-to-be entering it's final series) Mr. Selfridge and a nice easy-going mystery would love this, too, regardless of age.

Friday56 (share a blurb from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader.

  3. Monday, rain, and smoke - definitely setting a gloomy tone! I hope things things get brighter for Sophie and less Monday-ey. Thanks for sharing!
