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)
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple
I finished the wonderful Language of Thorns last week and am now reading The Handmaid’s Tale.
‘It’s not the husbands you have to watch out for, said Aunt Lydia, it’s the Wives. You should always try to imagine what they must be feeling. Of course they will resent you. It’s only natural.’
So far this is as dark and intense as expected for arguably one of the most well-known dystopian novels ever written, and I can’t wait to see where it goes next.
What are you reading this week? Have you ever read The Handmaid’s Tale? Let me know!
