The Friday 56 #2: Switched, by Amanda Hocking

This is a blog hop hosted by
Freda @ Freda's Voice.

Here are the participation rules:

* Grab a book -- any book.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find any sentence (or a few,
just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
* Post it.
* Add your post url (not your home page
url) to the Linky widget at the link above.

Here's my choice for this week!

(Trylle #1)
Trade Paperback, 318 pages
St. Martin's Griffin
January 3, 2012
Fantasy, Young Adult Fiction

From page 56:

"It wasn't until I was in here, when I had all the time in the world, that I found out what you really were," she went on, her eyes hardening and her voice strengthening with conviction.  " I read book after book searching for an explanation for you.  In an old book on fairy tales, I found out what kind of parasite you truly are -- a changeling."

What do you think of this
short excerpt?
Please leave a link to your
own fascinating '56' quotes!


  1. I think that this Friday 56 is a great idea. If I had more time I would participate.

    I find the above quote to be very interesting! It is amazing that it is almost random. I hope that you will post commentary on this book.

    That is also a great book cover!

  2. Hey, brian!

    I think it's a great idea, too, and it would be nice if you were able to participate!

    I had to look through some books until I found a quote I REALLY liked. I think this one would make any fantasy lover want to pick up this book! I will of course read and review it when I get a chance.

    The cover might look familiar to you -- I used it for one of my "Shelf Candy Saturday" posts, some time back.

    As always, thank you SO much for commenting!! :)

  3. Awesome 56. YOu get a sense of how betrayed she feels and slightly disgusted, in that moment.
