It’s Friday, so it’s time for “Preternatura Department 56.” Last week, it was Department 256 and I realized people were having to risk spoilers to move ahead in their books, so we’ll take it back a few pages.
So, “Department 56” is where we take a book we’re currently reading or recently finished and look on page 56. Then share the fifth and sixth complete sentences. You can add a little context if you want. If you’re reading on an eReader, use whatever page notation your reader employs as long as it ends with a ’56’. I have a Kindle and am happy to say they’re going to start featuring real page numbers of their books! Not sure about the other readers.
Want to play? Post your sentences, and I’ll enter you into a drawing for a wide-open Reader’s Choice giveaway. Yep, anything you want. Read more below.
First, I’m reading two books this week, so I’ll do two “Department 56” entries.
From Tamara Hogan’s new paranormal romance Taste Me (and Tamara will be a guest here on the blog in a couple of weeks), which I just finished. Scarlett, a siren/rock star who’s hung up on a guy from her past, is talking catching up with her sister Annika after coming home from a year-long tour with her band:
Her sister was an erotic adventuress, always on the hunt.
And I just started Mark Hodder’s steampunk novel, The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man, so I have no idea what the context is:
Hm…wonder what that’s about?
So, what are you reading? (See, this is a sneaky way to hear about some new books.) If your name is picked by our old pal random.org to win this international giveaway, you can literally pick out any book you want to win. My only stipulations: that it be less than US$15 and be available from either Amazon or Book Depository. As always, +1 for comment, +1 for blog follow, +1 for Twitter follow @Suzanne_Johnson, and +1 for Tweeting the contest. Share with me!
