The Friday 56

The Friday 56: A Darker Shade of Magic

The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. The idea is to share an excerpt from a book you’ve been reading every Friday, to promote the book or simply just to showcase your current read!


*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s OK.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple


Sadly, I’m not re-reading A Darker Shade of Magic (though I wish I was), but I haven’t had a change to pick up anything new since last week’s Friday 56 because I’m doing NaNoWriMo this month, so I thought I’d share one of my all-time favourite quotes from my favourite series instead.

“I’d rather die on an adventure than life standing still.”
– Lila Bard

To me, this quote encompasses the essence of the series in one sentence and, personally, I feel it sums up how I feel about seizing the opportunities for adventure in life rather than just coasting along.

What are some of your favourite book quotes? Do you have a book or series that you could just read forever? Let me know!

Until next time, Kate
