The Friday 56~ Red Rising

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 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 #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.
