The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. The aim is to share a few sentences of a book (whether it’s the one you’re currently reading or not) so other people might be enticed to pick it up.
Here’s the rules:
– Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
– Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
– Post it.
– Add the url of your post to the Linky on Freda’s most recent post.
“He stopped. He could smell burning.
He didn’t need to look around. He knew there was nothing on fire. What he could smell as burnt toast…and if he closed his eyes he would see a sudden flare of yellow, a teapot shaped like a teddy bear, his mother’s dress on the morning she was killed…
And he knew that it meant something was about to happen.”
From page 56 of the paperback of Evil Star by Anthony Horowitz
