The Friday 56

friday-56

The Friday 56 is a Bookish Meme/Feature created by Freda’s Voice.

Today’s Friday 56 comes from Radiance by Catherynne M. Valente. It’s a weird story about Classic Hollywood, documentaries, women creators, and space.

I don’t know why I thought part of it took place in the 80’s in last week’s Library Loot. Talk about a case of misreading/misremembering?!

Anyway’s, here’s this week’s quote:

ll3

“Twenty-one. Sleeps like a dragonfly so she never misses a thing. Lovers like a revolving door. Drinks like she’s allergic to water. She’s barely a person yet.”

I thought this paragraph (and the chapter this was taken from) was written so beautifully, it was hard choosing lines for this week’s Friday 56!

How’s your reading progress going?
