The Friday 56 #1


I really, really, really wanted to participate this week in the feature and follow as it is a tour of your bookshelves.  Unfortunately the room that my bookshelves are in, along with my bookshelves are in a bit of turmoil as I'm rearranging and organizing that room.  So, I had to find a different Friday meme to participate in because of that and the fact that I don't have a review to post because my current read is a REALLY long one!  Can't believe I'm only 40% through it in several days!  I must finish it this weekend or there's no way I'll meet my goal for my 2nd Annual September is for Sequels Challenge. So I found this one, The Friday 56, sponsored by Freda's Voice.  Here is what you do:

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


"I'm okay," Alex said breathlessly.  Her eardrums felt broken.  "You go.  Help her down.  I'm right behind you."  Now that she was up here, she wasn't sure, all of a sudden, whether this was such a hot idea.  The ground still looked really far away, and this northwest patch of the porch was glittery with ice crystals.  Slip and I'll break my neck.  Standing in the tub, she watched Wolf spider down to Penny, then coax her to the edge of the porch.  At her back, she could feel the heat build; heard a high, eerie howl over the locomotive churn of the fire.  Above the sink, a mirrored medicine cabinet chest suddenly gave way with a watery kersplash into the porcelain basin.  Beneath her feet, the tub shifted and shivered, and she realized then that the house was coming down.

  1. I had the same problem with the bookshelf tour. I didn't want to be left out so I just listed some of the books in my pile :)

    At any rate you've joined in Friday 56! So a howl would signify the house falling down? That's kind of scary :)

  3. This looks like a fun meme. It's too bad the bookshelves tour didn't work out. I love this excerpt, though. Thanks for sharing!
