The Friday 56: Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow


Welcome to The Friday 56, a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.

These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

This week I am spotlighting Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow.  It was recommended to me as a read alike for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural.  When I realized my local library had a hardback copy, I thought I'd pick it up - I just can't say no to Buffy and Sam and Dean.  I'm just about to begin, so let's hope it lives up to its potential!  I'm not sure about this cover though...



"How much?" I had some money - usually there was no shortage of cash where Dad was concerned; liquid resources were critical to our type of lifestyle.  But if Dad was really, truly gone, I had to take careful stock of what I had and make sure I could get more before I started spending like a maniac.

  4. Was a big Buffy fan but lost interest in Supernatural. But is sounds like the person in your 56 in is a bad way right now.

  5. I'm pretty sure I've heard of this author, but I haven't read anything by her. I'm not particularly sold on the cover either. I hope it turns out well though!

  6. Sounds like this character's privileged world is about to undergo a big change! That could make for an interesting story.
