Happy Halloween!

Welcome to a spooky edition of The Friday 56 hosted by Freda on Freda’s Voice. Head on over there and check out the other participating blogs. The community has been really great and I’m excited to jump in!

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.

You can follow me on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

    That’s so funny! I am currently reading this book so almost used the exact same quote! (I haven’t started A Monster Calls yet, I just thought it would be a good opportunity to give a Halloween shout out to one of my favorite authors!)

      How funny! It’s a good choice for a book to get my heart racing, but so far not spooky-scary. Maybe creepy-scary?
      Happy Halloween!

    I’m utterly confused ha ha! Is this the flick that just recently came out featuring Ben Affleck?


    • Sam October 31, 2014 at 4:55 PM #

      Yes, it is. I wanted to read it before I go see the movie. So far, so good!


      • Claudia {SparrowHawk} October 31, 2014 at 5:53 PM #

        I think I’ll probably see the film first. . .but until it lands at the dollar theater XD

        How’s the unpacking going?

        I’ve taken Monday off of work to finish up, we’re almost done. The worst part is all the thibgs we still have to hang on the walls!


      • Claudia {SparrowHawk} November 2, 2014 at 1:44 AM #

        I usually leave that project for my husband ha ha, but I’m sure it’s exciting getting to decide where to hang frames in a new place 🙂

        See you on the blogsphere in the week ahead!

    I’ve been wanting to read this book. The movie looks pretty good too.


    • Sam November 1, 2014 at 3:23 PM #

      I want to go see it as soon as I’m done with the book. I’ve heard great things!
