The Friday 56 #4



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.

Rules:
*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.

I'm reading "Parasite" by Mira Grant, who is a favorite author of mine. It's sci fi dystopian horror. My review will be up next week. Click on the cover to go to it's goodreads page.




"There were these people at the mall, I think they were sick." I lifted my head to see Joyce grabbing the remote off the coffee table. She clicked the TV on, flipping channels until she landed on CNN. They were airing a story about reality-star salaries. She snarled. "Why aren't they saying anything? I'm going to my room. Maybe the Internet will have a clue." She whirled and went stomping out of the room. Her bedroom door slammed a few seconds later. 

I pulled away from Mom. "So what was that you were saying last week, about how I used to be the dramatic one? Can we have a re-vote on that title?"

  6. That one made me laugh, but it looks like a serious Dystopian novel.
