This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice
The Friday 56
I decided it would be fun to take part in another weekly meme! This time it’s the Friday 56, which looks like fun and a great way to be part of the bookish community!
The rules are as follows:
- Grab a book, any book
- Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
- Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you
- Post it
- Add your URL post in the link on Freda’s most recent Friday 56 post
Ashes to Ashes is a book I have been waiting to come out for ages (a whole year to be exact!) and I wasn’t able to get to it right away on its release. I finally have the time to read it – and it is definitely not disappointing me so far!
Ashes to Ashes by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian
New Year’s Eve ended with a bang and Mary, Kat and Lillia may not be prepared for what is to come.
After Rennie’s death, Kat and Lillia try to put the pieces together of what happened to her. They both blame themselves. If Lillia hadn’t left with Reeve… If Kat had only stayed with Rennie… Things could have been different. Now they will never be the same.
Only Mary knows the truth about that night. About what she is. She also knows the truth about Lillia and Reeve falling in love, about Reeve being happy when all he deserves is misery, just like the misery he caused her. Now their childish attempts at revenge are a thing of the past and Mary is out for blood. Will she leave anything in her wake or will all that remain be ashes?
“Listening to this old music is like being in a time machine. I remember each CD I bought from Kim at Paul’s Boutique. I concentrate on finding songs I think he’d do well to emulate – kind of folksy guitar stuff but with an edge. I’m leaning back, eyes closed, when there’s a knock at my door. I say come in, expecting to see Pat, but it’s not him. It’s Lillia. And she looks upset.”
