The Friday 56

The Friday 56: Forest Of A Thousand Lanterns

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


“They’re women?” Xifeng asked, blinking.
“Every one of them, and they’re the deadliest killerson the continent.” Ken ignored the others’ scoffs and drew a finger across his lips.
“It’s said that they paint their mouths bright red with blood when they go to war. That’s why they’re called the Crimson Army.”

I started this a couple of days ago and it’s excellent. Full of Asian culture and mythology, as well as action and political intrigue, this evil queen retelling promises to be an exciting read from start to finish.

What are you reading this weekend? Have you read or are you planning to read Forest of a Thousand Lanterns? Let me know!

Until next time, Kate
