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
This evening, I started The Beast’s Heart, which comes out in the UK in January, so today’s quote is from that.
‘Nothing, not a denier,’ he whispered hoarsely. ‘What am I to do? What will become of us?’ He put his hands over his face and said in the bitterest of tones, ‘What a worthy father am I! I should thank that terrible Beast for removing Isabeau from my care!’ He swept up the letters lying on his desk and screwed them into a crumbled ball.
This book is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast from the Beast’s perspective, so I’m curious to see how the narrative unfolds from his point of view.
What are you reading this week? Which books are you hoping to get to over Christmas? Let me know!
