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: Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
Prologue: Eliza Mirk is the kind of name you give to the creepy girl who clings to her ex-boyfriend for weeks after he's dumped her because she refuses to accept that he hates her guts.Friday 56:
I sit with the paper on my desk for several minutes, staring at the back of Shelby Lewis's head and her retro butterfly clips.Comments:
-The storyline: a teen creator of a popular webcomic meets one of her biggest fans. He even writes fan fiction for her comic. He doesn't know who she is and she wants to keep it that way.
-The book is partially graphic (drawings) of the webcomic and texting/messages, the other part is regular prose. I like the drawings, they add to the story. I am irritated by the text messages. I hate reading the title of each speaker over and over. I like the writing but now that I am at the half-way point in the story I am wondering if the book is tad too long. What new drama will arise that will take 200 pages to resolve? Ever read a book like that?
-I do like the cover. Isn't it creative?
-I cracked up about the quotes I've included. The creepy girl quote is Eliza talking about herself. // The butterfly hair clips reminded me of when my daughter was in elementary school. I used to use them on her hair. But she has thick hair so I had to use a lot of them because they are so tiny.
