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 current read, Tricked (The Iron Druid Chronicles #4) by Kevin Hearne. I'm really, really excited to jump back into this awesome urban fantasy series! Atticus O'Sullivan is such a great character and I'll be glad to have him and Oberon back in my life. This will actually be the first book in the series that I will have actually read - the first three in the series I listened to on Playaway. The narrator and the production of the stories were great and I have no doubt I'll have his voice in my mind while I'm reading. If you enjoy The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, you're sure to love The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne.
The best trick I ever pulled off was watching myself die. I did a respectable job of it too--the dying, I mean, not the watching.
I was tempted to let her go, but then I reminded myself of the stakes.
In order to save the world, I would simply hold my breath the next time I got close.
