First things first: yes, I know it’s been a while. Yes, I know I am a terrible blogger. No, that won’t stop me from at least trying to get back into the swing of things.
Anyways The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are pretty simple:
- Grab a book, any book.
- Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s OK.)
- Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it).
- Post it.
- Add the url to your post on Freda’s Voice.
This week I thought I should quote a book I’m currently reading and really enjoying, and that’s Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb.
‘Boy, what are you called?’ she demanded suddenly.
She frowned at my soft words. I drew myself up straighter and spoke louder. ‘Fitz is what Burrich calls me.’
She flinched slightly. ‘He would. Calls a bitch a bitch, and a bastard a bastard, does Burrich. Well… I suppose I see his reasons. Fitz you are, and Fitz you’ll be called by me as well. Now, I shall show you why the pole you selected was too long for you, and too thick. And then you shall select another.’
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this quote, whether you know anything about the book or not.
Also if you have a Friday 56 post of your own don’t forget to leave the link for it in the comments so I can check it out.
