Friday 56: Prophecy

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


This week's selection comes from Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink. I first saw this book a couple months ago and was going to wait until it came out in paperback but it just looked so good I couldn't wait.

When Mr. Douglas's shop comes into sight, I see Miss Gray, standing outside and speaking harshly to James and Mrs. Bacon.

I keep encountering the Prophecy Of The Sisters whenever I go to bookstores but never picked it up. The book cover probably got tons of meaning but it looked so so uninspiring to me! It comes across as grey and miserable. So I never even considered reading the back caption. Is it any good? Are you going to review you it? I will read your review first and take it from there, if ever I will even consider reading this book.

My Friday 56 is at

ah.. silly me, should have read the post before this one.. Read your review.. *groan* Victorian! ok, ok, will have a look...

Also noticed that the date and time stamp on my comment is still Nov 12. It is already Friday in my part of the world though :)

Not sure where your part of the world is but I have a couple who get to Friday before we do in the US so I post the 56 early for my overseas friends that want to play!

Don't let the Victorian era be a deterrent. It's not stuffy at all. The Victorian age was a time of great spiritual change so I'm thinking that may be why she used it for her setting.

Mine's here.

Happy Friday!!

Victorian isn't bad unless there's too much time spent explaining the era and not enough time spent telling the story. Will have to check this one out because I do love Victorian, but it's usually romance.

Here’s my 56 offering.

Tonya said...

Not romance! hehehe

Not too bad a Friday over here I suppose! *Stretches back.*

Prophecy of the Sisters? I'll have to look them up!

Here's my Friday 56.

What I love about the Victorian era was all the beautiful old houses. :) My Friday 56 is here.

Happy Friday! I like Victorian. I may one day have to check this book out! Mine is from "Her Fearful Symmetry" by Audrey Niffenegger and is posted here!
