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 current read, The Uninvited by Cat Winters. This is my third Cat Winters book, and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors of historical fantasy. I'm not very far along yet, but I'm already enjoying this ghost story set during WWI.
I admit, I had seen a ghost or two.
The childhood night my mother's father died, when the silver moonlight graced the floorboards and the antique furniture in our front room, I once came upon my granny Letty - gone one year and a month - rocking in my mother's chair, next to the upright piano.
The boarded up entrance fell open behind me, and I was out in the cold, dark air with the door slamming shut two inches from my nose.
This week I'm also taking part in a brand new linkup called 50/50 Friday, which is hosted by Carrie @ The Butterfly Reader and Laura @ Blue Eye Books. Every week they'll have a new topic featuring two sides of the same coin - this week the topic is Character most/ least likely to curl up on a couch and read a book.
Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - After all Cath does write fanfiction based on her favorite book series.
Ronan from The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater - I have a hard time picturing him just curling up to read a good book unless it was absolutely necessary.
