This is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda's Voice.
The rules are simple-- grab the book you are currently reading and turn to page 56 (or 56% of your e-reader). Then copy a few sentences and post them.
These are the books we are currently reading and a snippet of page 56.
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
"'How do you do, Mrs. Allen? A famous ball last night, was not it? Come, Miss Morland, be quick, for the others are in a confounded hurry to be off. They want to get their tumble over.'"
