The Friday 56 #3: Alice by Christina Henry

Hey everyone! I'm participating in another book meme called the Friday 56, which is hosted by Freda's Voice! Here are a couple of rules for this meme:

*Grab a book, any book and find a creative way to showcase your 56. It can be a photo of the book and the 56 in comments or whatever you come up with.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your 
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. 


 "Alice could not see his face as she crammed cake in her mouth, and the Rabbit laughed and stroked her braid with his white hands, saying, Pretty little Alice.  We'll make you fine and plump, won't we, pretty girl?  Pretty Alice.

Alice. Alice.

His hand on her braid, wrapping around it, pulling her head back so she could look into his eyes, his blue-green eyes so angry (though they really ought to be pink, you know, like a proper rabbit's), eyes snapping, hand pulling her hair until she cried, his voice cracking like a whip, Where do you think you're off to, pretty Alice?

Alice. Alice.   pg. 56


  1. Whoa. This sounds intense. And so is that illustration!

  2. Sound scary and not my cup of tea but hope you enjoy it.

    1. Thanks! And it does have many rape scenes so it might be too intense and disturbing to read through.

  3. Definitely want to try this one of these days! :)

  4. Yup, love me some Alice... you've pulled me right in! Happy weekend!

  5. Oh my gosh...this sounds creepy but definitely right up my ally! I definitely will be looking into it this year.
