The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Find a quote from page 56.
Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't select their favorite, coolest, or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now:
Title: Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge
Her head hurt. There was a sound grating against her mind, a music-less rasp like the rustling of paper. Somebody had taken a laugh, crumpled it into a great, crackly ball, and stuffed her skull with it. Seven days, it laughed. Seven days.Friday 56:
Lost weight? Lost weight? With incredulity Triss recalled all the food she had devoured over the last three days. How could she have lost weight?Comments: I hope to start this book this Saturday. My daughter read it and thinks it is a very good YA Gothic/fantasy novel. All I know so far is the girl isn't what she thinks she is. Hmm...sounds a bit mysterious, too.
What are you reading this week-end? What do you think of the cover? It sure looks creepy to me.
Unfortunately, the cover is a deal-breaker for me. I just can't get past it to want to read the story.ReplyDelete
I know. Pretty creepy, huh?Delete
Seven days? Lost weight even while gorging. Hmmm, I am a bit curious myself.ReplyDelete

Apparently this is one of the first signs that things aren't what she thought they were.Delete
Ok, I'm adding this to my tbr right now! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).
This will work for the RIP, too!ReplyDelete
Yes, it is the book I will read for that challenge.Delete
You reeled me in with those excerpts....even though it isn't my usual read. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “ALL THE SUMMER GIRLS”ReplyDelete
I'm intrigued! It definitely sounds like all is not as it seems and I love the cover. Definitely a bit spooky!ReplyDelete
I'm thoroughly intrigued as well!! Sounds gripping!ReplyDelete
Most intriguing! The description of the laugh is chilling and so vivid. Will be checking this one out for my Halloween reading list!ReplyDelete

I was happy to discover the writing skills of this author.Delete
That cover is pretty scary!!ReplyDelete
ENJOY your read, and thanks for coming by my blog. If you want to stop back, I suggested a "Paris" book for you. :)
Have a great weekend.

Yes, I agree. Very scary.Delete
Hi - I like the beginning of Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge ... at least, I think I do. Sounds kind of scary somewhat like The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.ReplyDelete

I have a feeling this book tips on the creepier side of fiction than The Bell Jar. We'll see,Delete
It sounds like a great book. I can actually relate to the Friday 56... I'm trying to gain weight but even when I stuff my face and do strength training to try and build muscle, *points to quote*... it's very frustrating!! xReplyDelete
