Friday 56 (December 28/12)

Hosted by Freda's Voice, The Friday 56 is a fun meme!  Here's how to participate:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It's that simple.

It was hot and clumsy work, with her left leg scraping against the aluminum every few inches.  Twice she stopped to listen, thinking she heard footsteps somewhere below.  Would there be an alarm when their escape was discovered? (page 56 Scarlet ARC - Marissa Meyer author)

Scarlet was descending toward the alley behind the Rieux Tavern when her port screen chimed from the passenger seat, followed by an automated voice:  "Comm received fro Mademoiselle Scarlet Benoit fromt he Toulouse Law Enforcement Department of Missing Persons."  (1st page, 1st sentence from Scarlet ARC, author Marissa Meyer)


  1. Sounds like an interesting book. Great 56!

  2. i remember reading this book when it came out. i did enjoy it..

  3. This is definitely one I want, but first I must read Cinder.... I did win it a year ago, but the bad blogger still claims she is unable to send. I guess I will have to buy it.

    1. Freda, sorry to hear of your negligible blogger problem. Cinder is definitely worth the read. Perhaps borrow it from the library in the meantime?

  4. Hi Yvonne. Yes, it is interesting! It is a YA novel, part two of the Lunar Chronicles, to be released January, I think.

  5. Lady in Read, glad you enjoyed Scarlet. It's nice to see a YA novel that isn't the same old vampires and werewolves.

  6. The opening sentence for Scarlet was intriguing, thanks for sharing it!

    Also, thanks for dropping by my blog last Friday, have a Happy New Year! =)
