The Friday 56

The Friday 56~ Red Rising

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

Rules:
*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 Red Rising by Pierce Brown.

Red Rising (Red Rising, #1)

“But I don’t jump; I sit with Harmony and Ralph. Eo wanted more for me. I clench the scarlet headband in my fist.”

Book Beginnings~ How to Keep Rolling After a Fall

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 How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karole Cozzo.

How to Keep Rolling After a Fall

As I park in the lot of the Harborview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, I realize that, for the first time ever, I’m actually excited to be there. I’m working a short, three-hour shift, and the shift itself won’t be so bad, since I’m filling in on the orthopedics wing, where Jeremiah’s been assigned.

We’ll see where this goes…

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop #22

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:

What is your favourite Christmas-themed read? (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte)

I have several books that I read {or try to} every year in December. My absolute favorite is Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. I’ve read it every year since I was a kid. I also read the poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas every year on Christmas Eve. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve added a variety of Christmas poetry books and such, and also found The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus by Frank L Baum which is fantastic.
