The Friday 56 (1)

So I've been trying to do more of these lately, and this one seems interesting.
For those of you who don't know, The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda's Voice.
The rules are easy enough to follow. All you need to do is open the book you're reading to page 56 (or 56% for e-readers) and give us a little bit of what you're reading.

Right now, I'm almost finished with Four: A Divergent Collection. I own all the other Divergent books in hardcover, so I splurged for an autographed hardcover of this one.

Page fifty-six is blank. The end of a story is on the page before, and it is part of the break before the cover page for "The Initiate." It looks like I'll try again next week.

Just so I don't feel like I'm cheating anyone, here is my favorite quote so far:

“The ability to think isn't exclusive to erudite” 

What do you think? Do I fail because page fifty-six is blank?

Let me know if you participate by leaving a comment with a link to your Friday 56. I want to see what you're reading.


  1. I really want to read Four! Divergent is one of my favorite series. I haven't read any of the short stories yet, but I am dying to.

    P.S. You did not fail just because the page was blank :)
    My Friday 56

  2. Tessa, I really liked them.

    And thanks. I was so bummed when I saw that it was blank. Oh well. There's always another Friday.

  3. Haha, well it isn't your fault that page 56 is blank! I just ordered this online, and it's currently shipping. *fingers itch* gosh, I've been wanting to read this. Hopefully Roth executes Four's POV better with these stories, because in all honesty it fell a little flat for me in Allegiant.

  4. Connie, I know what you mean about Allegiant. I think the problem with it was that she didn't differentiate his voice enough. I had a hard time remembering whose chapter I was reading.
