The Friday 56 - July 18th 2014 - AmberBug

The Friday 56

Meet The Friday 56, a meme we found on Freda's Voice (another great book blog). The rules are as follows:

Welcome to Week 187!

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It's that simple.

The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone

By the time I said "Come back home to me," Addison had starved herself.
She looked like a prisoner of war, a skeleton in a T-Shirt.

*The book is all about the death of Addison Stone, getting to the bottom of it. This is done through interviews that include multimedia within the pages (pictures, articles, etc...) I think this is a style that is becoming more popular in fiction and I gobble it up (most of the time it warrants the gobbling, but can also be subject to getting too cliche). So far, this book is really interesting and fun.


  1. I haven't read a book that includes multimedia so I'm curious. This book sounds like a good place for me to start.
    Here's my Friday post: MURDER ON ASTOR PLACE.

  2. This one comes out middle of next month, a great one to start with would be "Night Film" by Marisha Pessl, which came out last year. Great example of it, this one is really good too though.

  3. Thanks for telling me about "Night Film." I'll look for it.

  4. I've seen a few books that are written like this and it's definitely intriguing. I think I'll try it first with a library book to see if it works for me.

  5. Kind of reminds me of the "Griffin and Sabine" books, where you take letters out of envelopes, read telegrams, etc, representing correspondence between the two characters. Sounds interesting! Visiting from The Friday 56!

  6. Wow. Quite a lot said in so few words. I like the way it's written. Hopping over to check it out!

    Here's my 56 -

  7. Such a heart-wrenching 56!

    Happy weekend!

  8. oh wow, sounds like a heartbreaking book.

    My BB and 56 :)
