The Friday 56 (October 12th)

Rules:


*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence (or a few) that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it to Freda's Voice.
*Add your (url) post to Linky on Freda’s post

The book this week is Criminal by Karin Slaughter. I’m actually not reading this book. Don’t even plan to. But it was sitting near me at the library while I was doing this and I liked the sentences. So now you know as much about the book as I do.


Most of the time when Amanda got into work, she’d run into a couple of suspects sporting black eyes or bloody bandages on their heads. They were generally handcuffed to the benches by the front door and no one could say exactly how they’d gotten there or with what they’d been charged.

Sounds interesting enough, I wonder why you don't plan on reading it??

I like those sentences too. It seems that the narrator works in a police station, except ... why didn't anyone know how they'd gotten there or what they'd been charged with? I'm curious!
My Friday post is from ONLY SCANDAL WILL DO.

It seems like a quick thriller. Why aren't you reading it? Just curious!
