The Friday 56 - 4/10/20

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme hosted by Freda's Voice.

These are the rules are as follows:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56 in a book or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it (or comment here)
5. If you blog post, add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

I grabbed A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin.

Page 56:

“I would sooner let Jon enjoy these last few days. Summer will end soon enough, and childhood as well. When the time comes, I will tell him myself."


“In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes of the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones."


  1. I have thgis on my Kindle, I won a copy, but have yet to read it. After seeing and totally loving the show, I am not sure I can get myself to read it. UGH. I prefer doing the reading first. Bookish dilemnas... lol
    Happy Easter weekend, stay safe!

  2. I'll be reading book three really soon. Happy reading!
