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.
I'm also taking part in Book Beginnings, a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. The rules are pretty simple - you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires. Don't forget to link up your post's url with Rose City Reader.
This week I'm spotlighting my next read, The Fold by Peter Clines. I'm extremely excited to read this one and I really lucked out because I was somehow the first person to get my hands on it when it came in at the library! Both of these two snippets are really interesting and beg me to read more. I want to know what's going on.
"I just don't think it's that good," said Denise. "It doesn't do anything for me."
Becky bit back a smile, even though Denise couldn't see it over the phone. They'd had this conversation every other week for two months now. It still made for a good distraction, though, and helped fill up the time until Ben got home.
It always worried her a bit when Ben was away. Ben was in charge of high-security projects. Mostly weapons. Often in high-risk areas.
Arthur smirked and nodded. "Back to Site B, Olaf."
"What? Are you joking?"
"Come on," said Jamie into her headset. "Play nice for the guest."
"This is ridiculous!" Olaf snarled up at the booth. "I have things to do."
