The Friday 56

The Friday 56~ The Handmaid’s Tale

It’s time for another edition of The Friday 56, a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice.

*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)
*Post it.
*Link up.

This week I chose to feature The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.

The Handmaid's Tale

“Is that how we lived, then? But we lived as usual. Everyone does, most of the time. Whatever is going on is as usual.Even this is as usual, now.”

Book Beginnings~ Illuminae

As I stated last week, I have some free time since all of my memes are scheduled out to the end of the year {or at least as far as I have topics}, so I am joining in with some additional memes, starting with Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.

This meme is a fairly simple concept, we share the first line or so from a current read. This week I’m featuring Illuminae by Aimee Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

So here’s the file that almost killed me, Director.

This is such a great beginning… you just can’t wait to see what happens next!
