Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.


This is a really fun meme!

The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.

Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!

My 56 for this week is from

Forest Of Memory

by Mary Robinette Kowal



Genre: Fantasy / Science Fiction

My 56 from the paperback.

If you’ve been paying attention, you know he lied about how long I was unconscious.

If you expect me to tell you what happened during that time, I hate to break it to you, but I don’t know.

And yes, I had to pee.

Read on if you want to know more.



Katya deals in Authenticities and Captures, trading on nostalgia for a past long gone. Her clients are rich and they demand items and experiences with only the finest verifiable provenance. Other people’s lives have value, after all.

But when her A.I. suddenly stops whispering in her ear she finds herself cut off from the grid and loses communication with the rest of the world.

The man who stepped out of the trees while hunting deer cut her off from the cloud, took her A.I. and made her his unwilling guest.

There are no Authenticities or Captures to prove Katya’s story of what happened in the forest. You’ll just have to believe her…



This is a short read. Only 88 pages. But so fascinating. I’ll be reviewing it soon.


Leave your link and I’ll drop by your 56.

Until the next time….
