Friday 56: Mystic City by Theo Lawrence


This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice

These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on 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 recent Friday 56 post.


This week I am choosing the book I am currently reading.
(I've already passed this point in the book)



      "Goodbye Aria," he says, and though he's determined, I can tell he's pained.
     I sit, frozen with sadness. Even though he's telling me goodbye, the way he says my name feels like the warmest hello I've ever received."

  1. The 56 sounds so sad. This sounds like a goodbye neither character wants to happen. I hope you're enjoying your read!

  2. Sounds like they're both reluctant to part. I'm curious about what led them to this point and what happens next. Sounds like a good story.
    My Friday post features CHRISTMAS CRACKER.

    1. This story starts as a mystery and it's about the MC, Aria, trying to figure out what has happened. At this point. She doesn't know why either of them are sad at their departure.

  3. I bet they won't be apart for long, if at all. :-)
    Love the cover!
    Happy weekend!

    1. I'll be honest, the cover is one of the reasons why I bought it. Then I read the synopsis and I was more interested in reading it.

  4. Aria is a beautiful name. Never saw it as a name but it works.

  5. So poignant. So sad. It's a lovely quote.

    1. I've read 100 more pages since the quote, and things still haven't gotten much better. :'(
