The Friday 56: The Lady Elizabeth



Rules:
* 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.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

In case you missed it last week, I have a whole bunch of new logos for you to choose from for the F56. Use the old one if you like or one of the new ones! I look forward to seeing what everyone chooses!

Also, don't forget about my Short Story Challenge.

My F56 this week comes from The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir. This was an impulse buy and I have no idea when I'll get around to reading it since I'm still working on reading through the Wheel of Time series again. Only on Book Three. This is the REAL challenge for myself this year!

Not sure what's happening here but I can guess based on the fact that at the top of the page it says Elizabeth is 6 years old here.

"There are so many ladies at court!" Elizabeth had marveled at their rich gowns, their bejeweled hoods, their air of sophistication.

Cherry, it is historical fiction, which I've gotten more into lately. I really enjoyed Alison Weir's first book Innocent Traitor and am looking forward to reading this one.

Thanks, everyone, for the compliments on the blog. I really wanted to do something completely different from what I had before. Just was so tired of the old look.

Happy Friday everyone from a frozen midwestern US. :) Mine is up here!

Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Wow, this sounds like a good one!

Love the new image! I "borrowed" it from The True Addict's post, but I see that you have it, too, so you're probably the one who created it!

fredamans said...

No offense but that red lettering on the background is awful. I couldn't even see the 56 to read it.

Tonya said...

Lots of new players today, I'm so excited! Sorry everyone for the red writing, I'll go change that. I used that when I had the old layout and wasn't even thinking how it would look in this one. If anyone wants me to add the logos they did fr the F56 to the page with all the new logos, feel free to email them to me tonyablum@yahoo.com

I am pretty sure that yesterday was the most successful day so far for the F56! I got 58 hits on my blog yesterday! WOW! Thanks everyone! I will try to return the favor more often and participate more frequently in other memes.
