Friday Memes: Magic for Liars by Sarah Gailey

 Happy Friday everybody!

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City ReaderThe Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The library at Osthorne Academy for Young Mages was silent save for the whisper of the books in the Theoretical Magic section.
Friday 56:
I looped the pass around my neck. "Why the ward? Is it dangerous in there?"
This week I am spotlighting Magic for Liars by Sarah Gailey which I purchased in January when it was a Kindle Daily Deal. Here is the description from Amazon:

Sharp, mainstream fantasy meets compelling thrills of investigative noir in Magic for Liars, a fantasy debut by rising star Sarah Gailey.

Ivy Gamble was born without magic and never wanted it.

Ivy Gamble is perfectly happy with her life – or at least, she’s perfectly fine.

She doesn't in any way wish she was like Tabitha, her estranged, gifted twin sister.

Ivy Gamble is a liar.

When a gruesome murder is discovered at The Osthorne Academy of Young Mages, where her estranged twin sister teaches Theoretical Magic, reluctant detective Ivy Gamble is pulled into the world of untold power and dangerous secrets. She will have to find a murderer and reclaim her sister—without losing herself.


  1. I like the opening quote about books whispering. I sometimes think that books do more than whisper. I'd call it yelling. "Read me." My Friday post is here

  2. I like that 56, very intriguing! Happy weekend!

  3. I really liked Magic for Liars. Enjoy your current read!
