The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice.
The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your ereader and find any sentence or a few ( no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.
Please join Rose City Reader every Friday to share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading along with you initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
Please include the title of the book and the author’s name.
I have been reading and reading and reading.
I finish one book and immediately begin on another.
I can’t seem to stop myself long enough to write the reviews.
Here is a free holiday read.
A dystopian story of Christmas

There was a hidden layer of society dabbling in something forbidden, and it was providence that had brought her to this place to find out more.
The first time she heard the peculiar sound, Zlata was getting back from a long day of work at the National Labor Office.
Curiously, she peered into the narrow, dark alleyway off Noah Boulevard. It was a sound she’d never heard before in her life – reminiscent of a cat meowing, but more appealing and far more beautiful. The sound made her feel sad and elated at the same time.
What do you think the sound is?
Visit the ocean surrounding the Walled City.
Ignore curfew and stay out after seven.
Call in sick more than three times a year.
A short, dystopian story about the spirit of Christmas.
If you like what you see, why don’t you follow me?
