This is a weekly tag meme, that is done every Friday, hosted on Fredas Voice blog. This is a really fun and interesting way to discover more of the stories of the unread books on my shelves and TBR list, or to share some of my favourite books with everyone.
Now For The Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence. (or a few, just try not to spoil it)
*Now post it.
*Make sure to include the tag #Friday56
*It couldn’t be simplier.
Alice (The Chronicles of Alice #1) – Christina Henry
There was one more object on the floor, and it was so strange to see that Alice stared at it.
“Is that. . .?” she asked, pointing. She didn’t even know how to say the word. She’d only ever seen pictures in books, never the real thing.
Hatcher grinned again, and she realized deep down, underneath all the blood and madness, Hatcher was a rogue. Somewhere inside him was still the boy who liked to cause trouble.
“It’s a gun, yes,” he said.
“A mind-bending new novel inspired by the twisted and wondrous works of Lewis Carroll…
In a warren of crumbling buildings and desperate people called the Old City, there stands a hospital with cinderblock walls which echo the screams of the poor souls inside.
In the hospital, there is a woman. Her hair, once blond, hangs in tangles down her back. She doesn’t remember why she’s in such a terrible place. Just a tea party long ago, and long ears, and blood…
Then, one night, a fire at the hospital gives the woman a chance to escape, tumbling out of the hole that imprisoned her, leaving her free to uncover the truth about what happened to her all those years ago.
Only something else has escaped with her. Something dark. Something powerful.
And to find the truth, she will have to track this beast to the very heart of the Old City, where the rabbit waits for his Alice.”
