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:

Fifteen Inches Tall And Bullet Proof and Other Stories

  by Melinda R. Cordell

Fifteen Inches Tall and Bulletproof: And Other Stories About Animals by [Cordell, Melinda R. ]

My 56 is from the preview of Those Black Wings from the eBook

All I longed for was for someone to hold out his hand and pull my heart back to its feet…..

But why did such a sweet and delicious thing, something I wanted so much – why was the very thought of it scaring the crap out of me?


I enjoy short story collections and I admit that the  cover and title were the main reason I grabbed this.

Read on if you want to know more.


This is a collection of short stories about the link between humans and animals.

Included are many previews of full length books too.



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