Friday 56, 16-January-2015

16 Jan

Welcome to the three day weekend edition of The Friday 56 hosted by Freda on Freda’s Voice. Head on over there and check out the other participating blogs.

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 guess I read this book so fast it didn’t have a chance to be part of my Friday 56, so I’ll be featuring Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, which I reviewed yesterday. Go check that out if you think this one sounds good.

I know you devour the Sports section, so you’ve probably already read how the North High Vikings trounced the Southeast Bunnies Friday night. The only thing missing from our coverage was the way the Viking defense rallied when the band played “Whoomp! (There it is).”

Yay Rainbow Rowell. I love her lighthearted humor and the way the characters have sarcastic conversations that actually happen between people. It’s very refreshing. Anyway, this is a great little book, a very light and fun read that I think could appeal to all audiences.

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!

    I’ve only read one book by Rainbow Rowell but I really enjoyed it. I should add this one to my stack. Happy reading!

      Her books are so enjoyable. I liked ‘Fangirl’ as well as this title. I look forward to more from her.

      It’s a really quick read. I think I finished it in a weekend. Happy reading!

    I might be one of the only bloggers who hasn’t read one of her books. I might have to amend that.
