The Friday 56 - July 18th 2014 - Arianna

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.

"She's as frail and ivory-colored as a comatose princess, slumbering through decades, waiting for the spell to be broken."

(This scene is describing Barrett, one of the main characters, looking in on his sister-in-law as she sleeps, fighting off the cancer that is consuming her.  The book is full of amazing imagery which transfers the reader regularly to fairy tale lands, for the briefest of instants.  Also, wanna know something kind of funny?  I'm on page 156 right now - exactly 100 pages from this spot.  Also weird?  There are exactly 256 pages in this book. If I were a more superstitious person, I'd consider that some sort of sign!)


  1. LOVE that Sleeping Beauty description! It definitely paints a picture.
    Here's my Friday post: MURDER ON ASTOR PLACE.

  2. This sounds absolutely fascinating! I love the fairy tale glimpses. I will definitely have to look for this one. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This sounds up my alley!

    Happy weekend!
