The Friday 56: Things A Bright Girl Can Do

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)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple

Today I finished Stranger by David Bergen, and started Things A Bright Girl Can Do by Sally Nicholls, so this week’s quote is from that.


‘Who are you?’ she said.
‘I told you,’ said May. ‘My name’s May. Mama and I came to hear Miss Pankhurst speak, because we think she’s interesting. And then I came here today because I wanted to see you. Because I think you’re  interesting. You do want to see me again don’t you? Because I can go away if you don’t.
She waited. At last, almost reluctantly, Nell said ‘I don’t want you to go away.’
‘I thought you didn’t,’ May said cheerfully.

What are you reading this weekend? Is there anything on your autumn TBR that you’re particularly excited about? Let me know!

Until next time, Kate
