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:


The Illuminae Files #2

by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff  



Genre: YA Science Fiction

From Page 56 in the hardcover.

If nothing was ever going to happen with us – and I know in what passes for reality for you that’s obviously not true, but just pretend – if nothing was ever going to happen, would you want to be my friend?

Would you even be talking to me?


Read on if you want to know more.


Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.

The saga that began with Illuminae continues on board the space station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of BeiTech’s assault. Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter, Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.

When an elite BeiTech team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum may be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival. The fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.

But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope.

  2. Silvia says:

    Ok, now I seriously wanna know the answer to that . . . I still have to put my hands on the first book, but I’m tempted to grab it soon!
    Thanks for sharing, I hope you are enjoying the read quite a lot :)

      I won this one and immediately ordered the first one. Having a lot of fun with these. Written so differently and I always enjoy that.

  3. A part of me wants to try these books but I am not a fan of the writing style, so it keeps me from trying them. :)

      It’s very different and takes getting used to. I enjoy that but, since you mentioned not being a fan of it, you might not enjoy these like I do, Stormi.

  4. Fascinating story! I don’t read Sci-Fi, but if I did, this one would tempt me. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  5. Seeing I’m a Gemini, that title gets my attention every time I see it. Hope you are enjoying it.
