The Friday 56

The Friday 56~ Everything I Never Told You

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 Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.

Everything I Never Told You

“That was the last time Marilyn saw her mother.”

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop #20

I am linking up with Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer for the Book Blogger Hop. And what is the Book Blogger Hop? Well according to the meme’s page:

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question:

If you had an author-only Thankgsgiving party, who would you invite? (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte)

Let’s see… this could turn into a long list with some very different types of authors in attendance:

Nora Roberts, Jayne Ann Krentz, Suzanne Brockmann, Cherry Adair, John Green, Rick Riordan, Matthew Quick, Elizabeth Gilbert, JK Rowling, Sophie Kinsella, Jen Lancaster, Cassandra Clare, Eoin Colfer, Jennifer Niven, Jay Kristoff…

I could go on, but I think I’ll cap it at 15.

Book Beginnings~ Miracle on 5th Avenue

I’ve added some additional memes to my repertoire and am linking up 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 Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan.

Miracle on 5th Avenue (From Manhattan with Love, #3)

“We cannot send two turtledoves! I know he’s proposing at Christmas and he thinks it’s romantic, but it won’t be romantic when the room is covered in bird droppings….”

This is hysterical!
