I really like the idea of showcasing a book by giving you a little teaser from said book. Freda’s Voice hosts the Friday 56 meme, and I wanted to take part. Here are the rules:
1. Find a book and turn to page 56 (e-books, go to 56% of the book or however you would like)
2. Find a line(s) that interest you and post!
That’s it. Oh! If you do it, you should add yourself to her linky which you can find on her page.
Now on to my choice!
Mom was wearing her best green dress, the one that appears in all her publicity shots, and Dad was in his usual professional ensemble–tweed jacket, white shirt, khaki slacks. Put them next to Shaun, who was wearing a button-down shirt with his customary cargo pants, and they looked just like the last family publicity picture, even down to Mom’s overstuffed handbag with all the guns inside it (p.56).
The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop.
The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives – the dark conspiracy behind the infected.
The truth will get out, even if it kills them.
I’m currently 80 pages in, and it’s interesting so far. I’m not big on zombies (although I loved the show In the Flesh), but I like the idea of sibling bloggers trying to find the origin of the zombie apocalypse. I’m sure you’ll see a post from me on my reading process.
