Friday 56

The way this meme works is pretty simple. If you want to join in, head over to Freda’s blog and add your link.

*Grab a book, any book (I grab the one I’m currently reading)
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.

I’m powering through this title so I want to use it while I still have the opportunity: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Here’s a quote from page 56.

Then comes sex and a stiff drink and a night of sleep in a sweet, exhausted rats’ tangle in our big, soft bed. Poor me.

Having read further into the book, this quote is great because Amy is still so confident in her marriage! Her ‘poor me’ at thee end is sarcastic. Flynn has done an amazing job of showing the readers how something that started so happily (as this quote shows) can turn sour. I won’t give away more than that, but know that I’m really enjoying this book so far! I hope to review and movie compare soon.

Until next time, write on.
