The Friday 56 Week 7

 

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

Rules:
*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.
*It's that simple.

My Friday 56 for this week comes from one of my Christmas gifts - The 5th Wave by Rick Yancy. I'm really liking this book so far. 

SYNOPSIS

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother--or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.


The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1) FRIDAY 56

From page 56 -- "The camp lay twenty miles east of where we lived, hacked out of the woods during the 3rd Wave to build a field hospital after the ones in town had reached full capacity. The buildings were slapped together, made out of hand-sawed lumber and salvaged tin, one main ward for the infected and a smaller shack for the two doctors who tended the dying before they, too, were sucked down by the Red Tsunami."

  4. Sounds like a chilling sci-fi story. It may be too scary for me!

  7. I got this book as a paperback ARC and *still* haven't read it. But I saw the movie preview when we took the kids to see Star Wars and I thought, 'hmm, I think I better get that one read.' ;) I'm glad you're enjoying it, Carey!
