The Friday 56 #1

The Friday 56

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.

A Long, Long Sleep

A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

"I stared at the man. He had a kind face, but seemed a little lost. I wanted to draw it. It seemed familiar. Then I realized they all did."

Taken (Taken, #1)
Taken by Erin Bowman

"I watch as a bead of sweat trickles down her neck and across her collarbone, disappearing beyond the neckline of her shirt. 'If I tell you something, do you promise not to repeat it?' she asks."

Keeping the Moon

Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
"She took a deep breath and rattled it off: 'Regular Nachos: beans, chips, cheese, chiles. Deluxe Nachos: all of the above plus chicken or beef, tomato, and olives.'
'Duh,' Norman said loudly.'" 


  1. I must read Sarah Dessen. She's real fun on Twitter.

  2. I see a theme happening here... they all sound pretty awesome to me! :-)

    Happy weekend!

  3. Three good excerpts. I think I like Tessa's best.
    Here's the link to my Friday post: MOVING IN.

    1. I really like your post! I have to add Moving In to my never-ending pile of books to read.
