The Friday 56 - Fang Girl


I have decided to try something new today, and participate in "The Friday 56", hosted by Freda's Voice.  All you have to do is turn to page 56 of a book (or 56% if you're and e-reader user) and share a sentence or two without spoiling anything

Today I've been reading Fang Girl by Helen Keeble, and I am loving it so far!


"Then, of course, I went straight back to Fang-Girls.net.  I'd never thought of myself as a Big Name Fan or anything, but literally hundreds of people had posted messages about how great I'd been as a moderator and how insightful my commentaries had always been, and how much fun I'd been in the roleplaying chat-room, and what a tragedy it was that I'd never finish my epic, multi-fandom, crossover crackfic saga (though there were not, in my opinion, nearly enough comments expressing this latter regret)." - Fang Girl, page 56

This book has turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting, and I was even considering returning it to the library without picking it up at all.  I'm so glad I didn't, because I have been laughing out loud constantly and I'm in love with the characters.  It's definitely a book you have to be in the mood for, but I'll talk more about it in a review when I'm finished.

What book are you currently reading?  Care to share part of page 56? :)

  2. Welcome to the 56. The cover alone would make me pick this up. I sounds like it may be funny along with the creepiness.

  3. The book's cover tickled me. Is the story about a geriatric vampire with false teeth? The two-sentence (long!) excerpt left me breathless.
    Here's the link to my Friday post: Coulda Been a Cowboy.

    1. The cover unfortunately has nothing to do with the story really. It's about a vampire-obsessed girl who is turned into a vampire. I probably should have mentioned that in my post, oops. It was a long two sentences, wasn't it?
      Thanks for sharing - I will go check it out! :)
