Have I mentioned how much I’m loving this meme? The Friday 56 is a meme created by Freda’s Voice. As you can see, this is only my second week joining in but I’m going to try really hard to make it a habit.
- Grab a book, any book.
- Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
- Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
- Post it.
- Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.
This week, I choose to pick a book that I most recently bought. And the title that takes that privilege is Alexandra Bracken’s re-imagining of Star Wars A New Hope: The Princess, The Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy. And since I haven’t started reading it yet, I’m crossing my fingers that page 56 doesn’t give away much for me as I read it to find a good sentence!
“She knew full well that her quarters were a prison cell, but she’d jump out of an air lock before acknowledging that fact.”
I don’t know about you, but this leaves me intrigued! It’s crazy seeing all the new Star Wars books that came out this Fall. I know it’s in anticipation for the new film but I would have liked them a little scattered. I didn’t know which one to read first! The next one on my list will be Claudia Gray’s Lost Stars.
Are you a Star Wars fan? Have you read any of the new Star Wars books? Or the old ones? Thoughts on the new movie?
