The Friday 56 is a really cool book meme. You get to share a little bit of the book you're reading. You can either go to page fifty-six in your physical or e-copy, or you can select a passage from the fifty six percent marker on your e-reader. The only thing you want to watch out for are those spoilers. Try not to give away anything too important. The goal is to make someone curious enough to read the book you're currently reading.
This week, I'm going to post passages from two books that I'm reading, Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke and My True Love Gave to Me, a holiday story collection edited by Stephanie Perkins.
"Brice's arm is looped through Jonathan's as they walk down the aisle. They're completely adorable together. Like, make-me-want-to-barf adorable."
My True Love Gave to Me:
"I broke eye contact and kneeled down to pet Olive. I was so hungry now I constantly felt lightheaded. My arms and legs felt like styrofoam. I'd finished off the hot dog bun and baby carrots and the yogurts the night before. When I awoke in the morning, I had half of the chocolate bar. I still felt hungry, though, and drank glass after glass of tap water thinking it would fill me up. It didn't work."
So those are my Friday 56 excerpts this week. I hope you enjoyed the little pieces of both of these ARCs.
