The Friday 56: Cress

the-friday-56Hosted by Freda’s Voice, The Friday 56 follows these simple rules:

  • Grab a book, any book.
  • Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
  • Find any sentence (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you.
  • Post it.

Decided to choose a book which I’m currently reading, Cress by Marissa Meyer. It is the third book of the Lunar Chronicles trilogy. I enjoyed the first two immensely, and have high hopes for this one.

“Nainsi, Kai’s android assistant, appeared in the office doorway, holding a tray with jasmine tea and hot washcloths. Her sensor light Cressflashed. “Daily reports, Your Majesty?”

“Yes, thank-you. Come in.”

He took one of the washcloths off the tray as she rolled by, chafing his fingers with the steaming cotton.

Nainsi set the tray on Kai’s desk and turned to face him and Torin, launching into the day’s reports that blissfully had nothing to do with wedding vows or eight-course dinners.”

Meyer’s fractured fairytales are always creative and entertaining. In Cress, the titular character is imprisoned in a satellite which orbits Earth. Looking forward to seeing where the story goes from there!
