Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading!
"I placed my thumb and forefinger on the icy flesh, spreading it out above the breastbone as Uncle had showed me."
"The murderer truly must be a madman if he thought what he was doing was helpful or righteous. And that thought was more terrifying than any other."
I am only just starting this book but that first sentence certainly sets a tone! I am a fairly squeamish person (and something about the word flesh just creeps me out) but I am excited for this book. And I definitely see her point on the 56 - a murderer who thinks they're in the right is much more terrifying to deal with.
