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


I am so utterly and completely excited about the book I am reading this week. I adore this series – I would go as far to say as Maggie Stiefvater is my newest favourite author. I wasn’t going to post this week but I just had to share a snippet from this amazing book!

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up. Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs. The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost. Friends can betray. Mothers can disappear. Visions can mislead. Certainties can unravel.

Page 56:

“People are going to see you talking to nobody and think you’re weird.” This amused him. It neither amused or worried Blue. She’d gone through eighteen years as the town psychic’s daughter, and now, in her senior year, she had already held every single conversation about that fact. She had been shunned and embraced and bullied and cajoled. She was going to hell, she had the straight line to spiritual nirvana. Her mother was a hack, her mother was a witch. Blue dressed like a hobo, Blue dressed like a fashion mogul. She was untouchably hilarious, she was a friendless bitch. It had faded into monotonous background noise.

  1. Why, why are you tempting me to take a peek at this book when I don’t have it yet? So technically I didn’t read your 56, but it being Blue Lily, Lily Blue I’m convinced it’s wonderful. I still have four more days of waiting and I’m trying to avoid all spoilers of any kind.

    • Sorry for tempting you with it! My copy was delivered early so I wasn’t expecting to have it for the weekend – a nice little surprise (and yes, it is wonderful!) 😉

      Edgar Allan Poe – fab choice! So spooky… 😀
