Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - May 3rd

This is a fun meme to do hosted by Freda's Voice. If you'd like to join on the fun go to The Friday 56.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it here.

It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader.

This week I'm reading...


The Manse is watching me.

At first I don't notice it, I'm too involved in my study of the imposing gray stone edifice before me. It's a tall structure - three stories, and the first two must have high ceilings - with a turret and stepped gables like sets of staircases. Grand baronial style, I think, the half remembered phrase leaping into my mind.

The Friday 56...

From 56% on my e-reader...

"I'm worried you might think I'm overreacting. I probably am overreacting."


  1. This is a new to me author. I like the beginning and the 56%. Great cover!

  2. I recently downloaded this book, and can't wait to start reading it. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “I KNOW WHO YOU ARE”

  3. I like both of those snippets, it sounds like a good one. Happy weekend!

  4. I don't know anything about this book. The cover image makes me think it will be a tense read

  5. I saw this one but didn't download it. I hope you are enjoying the story. This week I am spotlighting Echo North by Joanna Ruth Meyer. Happy reading!

  6. Oooh! This sounds like an interesting read!

    Here’s my Friday 56!
