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: My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

Book Beginning: Prologue:
You may think you know the story. It goes like this: once upon a time, there is a sixteen-year-old girl named Jane Grey, who was forced to marry a complete stranger (Lord Guildford or Gilford or Gifford-something-or-other), and shortly thereafter found herself ruler of a country. She was queen for nine days. Then she quite literally lost her head.
Friday 56:
Brilliant, he thought. Just brilliant. But should dying people have to apologize?
Comments: I just finished this hilarious YA novel last night. It makes me smile to think about it. The authors have turned history upside-down and have succeeded in telling a very good and very funny tale where no one dies and events don't turn out the way we they think they will. Please check out my review, if you want to know more. My Lady Jane.

  4. I FINALLY got to lay hands on a digital copy of this book (YAY for Kindle deals!) and cannot wait to dive in, though I've already read the first 5 chapters through an email subscription I'm part of. It sounds SUPER hilarious and I've heard amazing things about it, so I'm excited!

    Thank you so much for sharing! Here's my Friday 56 if you're interested in taking a look. No worries or pressure if you're not, though! Either way, happy book-ing to you in the near future...and happy Friday! <3
