The Friday 56 is a meme created by Freda’s Voice. I’ve been keeping this up and I hope I can continue. Happy Friday!
- 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.
The following quote is from Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. You can find out more on Goodreads.
“Why can’t I just dress up as a maid and infiltrate the Chancellery?” she’d asked after a particularly frustrating training session on the Zundapp. Her leg wept from road rash, and her heart quivered at the thought of 20,780 more kilometers on the contraption. “Wouldn’t that be simpler?”
Reiniger didn’t even glace up at her. He flipped to the next blueprint. “It has to be in public. In front of the cameras. With lots of witnesses.”
“This isn’t an assassination.” Reiniger’s beard stubble glistened silver in the harsh carve of lamplight. “It’s an execution.”
