Friday 56: The Mermaid's Sister

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice.  Click here to join in on the fun.
Rules: Grab a book, any book.
Turn to page 56, or 56% in your eReader.
Find a sentence, or a few, and post it.

So I actually have two passages to share this week, because as I was looking at the page I found myself torn between two lines.  They're both wonderful, so I feel like I must share them both.  Also this book is amazing, so you should definitely read it.

From 56% of The Mermaid's Sister:
"'It is not what Maren wants, to live in a jar.  It is not what is best for her.'"
And also:
"Across from O'Neill and me, Soraya sits at her husband's feet and rests her head against his impeccably dressed knee.  Dr. Phipps smiles, but not at her.  He is smiling at O'Neill and me, and his smile is a wicked, wicked thing."


  1. This book was adorable. It's one of the few kindle first books that I actually read. This seems like a fun meme. Maybe I should start with it!

    1. I just finished reading it and I absolutely LOVED IT. You're right, it's absolutely adorable :) Totally, it'd be great if you joined the meme! I love seeing what other people post because it helps get me interested in some books I wouldn't normally read.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love the title and the cover. I'd like to know more about the story.

    My Friday post features The Reluctant Midwife.

    1. Oh it was so good! Really recommend it!

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. I've never heard of this one but it does sound interesting. I wonder what the wicked guy is thinking? And I like that cute cover art and fun title.

    Here's my 56 -

  4. I like the sounds of this one! Happy weekend!

    1. Happy weekend to you as well! (even though it's Sunday evening right now....)
