The Friday 56 #6

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.

 Enders by Lissa Price

"'Sorry it couldn't be longer,' Hyden said, nodding to the airscreen. 'But we can't risk any interceptions.' I stood and faced him. He stepped back. 'So you drugged my family?' I said."

Enders (Starters, #2)

Alienated by Melissa Landers

"'I start tomorrow,' Aelyx added. He looked forward to his first day of school with all of the enthusiasm of a man facing a lobotomy."

Alienated (Alienated, #1)

North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley

"And now I did most of the driving for Mom. She'd never been a comfortable driver, but after her sister, my Aunt Susannah, died in a bus crash, Mom practically had panic attacks whenever she got behind the wheel."


  1. I've been dying to get my hands on Alienated! Why must the library be so slow? Happy reading.
    My Friday 56

  2. Great excerpts! I especially love North of Beautiful. What an intriguing excerpt.

  3. They all sound really good to me!

    Happy weekend!

  4. That must feel spooky having a panic attack behind the wheel. He drugged her family? Why?

  5. I love these 56s! I have all of them on my tbr list and can't wait to read them
    Thanks for stopping by my 56 :)
