Hey everyone, a huge happy Friday to you all!
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 week I’ve gone for a quote from my current read, The Foxhole Court!
“You’ll find out the hard way, same as Kevin did. Kevin gave Andrew a lot of grief this spring”, Nicky said as they pushed their way into the locker room. Aaron went ahead of them to the water fountain and Nicky propped himself against the wall to watch Neil. “Andrew walked off the court for an entire month. He said he’d break his own fingers if Coach made him play with Kevin again.”
The thought of Andrew willingly destroying his talent made Neil’s heart clench.
“But he’s playing now.”
This is a quote from p.56, so I’m only a quarter of the way into this book, but it’s pretty intriguing so far. I want to know more about Neil’s backstory and I like books set at university so I’m eager to see where this one goes.
Let me know if you’ve read The Foxhole Court, or if it’s on your TBR! If not, perhaps this quote has made you interested in picking it up!

I see aesthetics for this one on my Tumblr feed all the time and I’ve never known what it’s about. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that really showcased a sport. Hope you enjoy the rest of this one! Happy Friday 🎉
Yeah, I’ve seen quite a lot on twitter and pinterest so I already knew a little about the book. It’s about an American sport called Exy though, which I’d never heard of until starting this! Thanks Alicia, have a great weekend!
Is that a real sport? I’ve never heard of it and I’m American!
It is! I looked it up out of interest and apparently it’s similar to Lacrosse. I’d never heard of it until I started this novel, but now I’m quite intrigued.
