Friday 56 and a giveaway

Woo hoo, we made it to another Friday!! So, now it’s time for some fun and that means Friday 56 ;).  This week, I have something extra, too…a giveaway, so read to the end *G*.

I glared. “I am not. And you can’t possibly know that.”  –Mac in Faefever by Karen Marie Moning.

**Note this is the 3rd book in the series. Read order is: Darkfever, Bloodfever, Faefever, Dreamfever and Shadowfever

I’ll admit, I’m a huge Fever series (helllo JZB!!!) fan.  I was lucky enough to come by not one, but 2, HARDBACK copies of Faefever. So, I’m sharing the wealth…and that’s what’s up for grabs. Entering is easy, just leave me your Friday 56 in the comments.  Haven’t done it before?  Grab the closest (doesn’t have to be your current #Fridayreads) book, turn to page 56 and give us the 5th sentence. You can give a few around it, too if you’d like.  By entering, you’ve read the rules and disclaimers for any of mine or Shiloh’s contests and agree to abide by the terms.  I’ll draw a comment at random and post the winner by next Friday here on the blog.  Happy reading!
