"The Friday 56" is also a weekly event, hosted by Freda's Voice, where you find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you from page 56 or 56% in your book/eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
Another weird week for me. I'm between books and haven't decided which to read next, so I'm pulling one of the ones I'm looking forward to reading most off my shelf and teasing myself with some excerpts.
When it comes to love there’s no such thing as conventional.
Everyone thinks Colton Neely is special.
Lilly Evans just thinks he’s fascinating.
Once friends when they were younger, their bond is cut short due to her accident prone nature and they go their separate ways. Years later, they meet again and Lilly learns that there is something special about the boy she once knew, but she has no idea what it all means. And she’s not sure if she’s ready to find out.
When he walks through the corridor of her school the first day of her senior year, she knows that it’s time to get to know the real Colton Neely. The more she learns, the deeper she falls.
Their friendship grows into love, even as Colton does not express it in words. But one decision threatens to break down the world that Lilly has tried so hard to integrate into and she must figure out if the relationship can survive if they are apart.
"It begins with a boy."
"What I had failed to realize during all of that was, even though I was going out of my way to see things through his eyes... to understand him more and more each day in order to make our relationship work... learning about things was not enough.
There's a huge difference in reading about it and experiencing it."
Any book beginnings, middles, or ends that you would like to share?
Until next time,
