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
Today I’m starting Hero At The Fall by Alwyn Hamilton, which I picked up earlier in the week at her signing and in conversation event. This quote is one I found particularly intriguing.
I slammed the door open. Our princess had moved as close to the window as she could with her hands chained to the bed frame. Her head snapped up as I entered.
“What the hell was that?” Behind me I heard Fadi start to cry. I’d woken him up. I cast a glance over my shoulder. Sara gave me a reproachful look as she picked him up, bundling the baby out of the room.
“I could have told you taking me was a mistake,” Leyla gloated. She’d heard it too, every word.
I’m enjoying this a lot so far, and because it’s the final book in the trilogy I think it’s going to be explosive right through to the final page.
What are you reading this week? Have you completed any trilogies recently?

I read Hero yesterday and it’s going to take me ages to recover! My review’s going up Monday. Hope you like the whole book
Ooooh that’s some high praise! I can’t wait to continue with it, though I’ve heard there’s a pretty heart-wrenching death towards the end! (Hoping to avoid spoilers though!)
Twas quite emotional 😥 I did get a bit teary. Wasn’t my fave (thankfully) but it was a close second
Oh noooo, I’m not prepared! Am I going to cry?
You may. I had tears in my eyes, basically for the last quarter of the book. But that was probably just me because I could sense the end and the anticipation. Oh and the twist 😰 oh the feels!
