Friday 56...Linger (15)

The book today: Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

I could pick out the scent of the pack, too, musky and pungent.

The Friday 56 idea came from… The Bookoholic Zone

The 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.


  1. From: Free Sex, Expensive Therapy" by Judith Sage´, a kind of memoir about ... free sex! Well, also the damage of indiscriminate sex and a life that features activity but no real connections. It deals with addiction and betrayal with a humorous and light touch and good writing. Interesting to see how she found strength and transformed her life. (I like this part where, in her 50s, she divorced and instead of being practical, she bought a hair piece, so she could pretend to be a "goddess," and let's face it, all the goddesses in the pictures have long hair! It turned into a turning point -- she realized that whenever her motives were less than pure a higher power offered a lesson. She was about to send her vibes toward someone else's hubby -- and a flirtatious workman tossed a cigarette butt her way. And those long tresses caught on fire! Let that be a lesson...

    Here's the section from page 56:
    [[Almost the moment I arrived, I slumped into an overstuffed chair in her living room and told her the truth. “Victoria,” I said, “The smile on my face is so brittle, it’s about to crack. I’ve exhausted my energy to playact.”
    “Hooray!” she said as she hugged me. “The light in your eyes went out years ago. I’ve been so worried and felt so powerless.”]]
