The Friday 56 (21)

The Friday 56 is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Freda at Freda's Voice. The rules are super easy to follow, and this feature is a great way to share the books you're reading with other bloggers and readers. I've discovered so many great books through this meme, and I always have a blast trying to figure out what quote I like the most.

So what do you need to do to participate in The Friday 56?
  • Go to page 56 (or 56% for e-readers like Kindle and Nook) of the book you're currently reading
  • Grab a few sentences to share with your blog's readers, but be sure not to spoil anything too major from the book
  • Add your name and link to the link-up on Freda's blog
 So... once again, I find myself reading another ARC on Friday. (I got curious last night, and I did the math. 57% of the books I've read this year have been ARCs. I love reading them, but I am going to make more time for back listed books too.)

Anyway... I'm really excited for this week's pick because the book showed up on my front porch months and months ago. I wanted to read it right away, but I guess it showed up when all my late spring books showed up, and you know me... I typically read them in publication order. Well... I skipped a few (for now) to get to this beauty because I couldn't wait any longer! It's my most anticipated release all year.

*The quote that follows does not reflect the final printing. I'm sharing a quote from an uncorrected proof that could very well be changed in the published version.* 
"I used to hate it, all their macoin' - being nosy. But now I couldn't decide which was worse - having neighbors spy on me, counsel me like they knew the workings of my heart? Or having them look right through me?"
Now it's your turn! I'd love to know what books you're featuring on your blogs this week, so feel free to share the links to your Friday 56 posts! You know I love blog hopping, so leave a link, and I'll drop by.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I've never heard of this meme before!But it sounds nice.
    I hope you're loving this book.I've always wanted to read a Sarah Ockler novel.

  2. Oooo, this book sounds really interesting! I'm going to have to check it out :)

  3. Macoin'?? I'm stumped... lol
    Other than that it sounds like these people know her too well. Sounds like a good read!
    I added you to the Linky! Happy weekend?

  4. I hope one day you join us in The Friday 56! :-)

  5. The main character, Elyse, is from Trinidad and Tobago, so I'm guessing it's a colloquial term there. It's a very good read so far! I am loving this one, and cannot wait to see what other people think of it.

    Thanks, Freda! Have a great weekend!

  6. I am LOVING it so far! It's really diverse, and I love how Ockler is able to weave so many different ideas and cultures together in it.

  7. OMG. The Friday 56 is one of my favorite memes! It's so fun to read little snips of books and figure out if I want to read them or not.

    I love Sarah Ockler. If you ever need help choosing one of her books, let me know. :)
