This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you. 
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most Friday 56 post.
The White Queen page 56:

Sister, they were pissing in the fireplace rather than leave the great hall - and then the door opened and the king came out looking grim and the king put on his happiest smile and said, "Well, my lords, I thank you for your patience."


  1. I love that cover! I know this is a series I could easily get into.
    I added you to the Linky. Happy weekend!

    1. Thank you so much. I knew I had to work a really long shift Thursday so I set it to post a few days ago.

  2. This looks intriguing. I've added it to my TBR list. Enjoy!

  3. Beautiful cover. I'm wondering what pronouncement the king is about to make.
    My Friday post features CHESTNUT STREET by Maeve Binchy.

  4. This one seems okay. Enjoy the book! :-)

  5. I have read and enjoyed one book in this series. I have to catch up one day. This week I am spotlighting Project Elfhome by Wen Spencer - a linked short story collection. Happy reading!

  6. Really liking the title and lovely cover. Got a feeling I'd like this story too.

  7. I've never read this author, but it sounds like a good book.

  8. I love Phillipa Gregory -- she is a fantastic historical fiction writer. I hope you enjoy The White Queen.

  9. I've always wanted to try a Phillipa Gregory novel. The covers always look so beautiful, I'm eager to see what awaits inside. Have a lovely week!
