The Friday 56, #7

The Friday 56 is a meme created by Freda’s Voice.   the-friday-561

The Rules

  • 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 chose to do my current obsession of the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger.  I just finished Heartless, book 4.  And I can’t wait to get my hands on the last one.  Until then, I will wait, impatiently.

“Tell someone who can do something.  Tell the soulless girl.”
“Her? But I don’t even like her.”
“That’s no excuse.  You don’t like anyone.”The ghost hated it when she was sensible with herself.

These books are filled with ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and soulless (but there’s only one of her). It’s a wild romp through Victorian London in a steampunk setting and I could not recommend this entire series more.  8356487Soulless is the first in the series. These books are laugh out loud funny and full of ridiculous situations.  Gail Carriger also has a YA series (Finishing School) and a spin-off of Soulless as well, Custard Protocol.  I cannot wait to read those!

Have you read any books by Gail Carriger? Isn’t she lovely?

Happy Friday!!
