Category: Friday’s Page 69

This one will be dedicated to a book’s page 69. I will post one or more sentences from the page that seem interesting/fun.

I started with this one in 2015 (May), and here is the backstory on how I got the idea: You all probably know that publishers often put something on the back to attract people. Something like turn to “insert page number”. Well, according to a writer’s 2006 book you should pick page 69 to determine if you want to read the book (Find Your Perfect Novel).

Noah has won enough Championships to last a lifetime. It’s time for someone else to beat him down a peg… or ten. I don’t know how Maya deals with his ego.
Tires rotate, car gears change, and my heart races to the thrum of the engine. I make it around Noah’s car at one of the last turns, pulling in front of him when it matters most. The crowd goes wild when I pass the checkered line. A shit-eating smile tugs at my lips because I fucking did it.

“A problem?” I said as Eddie came toward us across the living room.
Rose gave me a look like I was stupid. “Well, let’s see. You got Rhonda Jean dead in your car, Detective Quentin thinks you’re a murderer, and whoever killed that girl knows you picked her up. I’d call that a problem, wouldn’t you?” She leaned back in her chair. “I seem to remember the police took your car away. Right?”
Eddie was standing next to my chair now. He put his hand on the back of it. You told her, that gesture said.
“Yeah,” he said to Rose. “They took our car.”
“I thought so. You need to figure your way out of this.” She picked up the bowl and held it out to Eddie. “Want a chip? I’m going to lend you Robbie’s car.

I smile at the dark ceiling, my heart swelling with affection for both of them. “Cleo’s great at boundaries. She probably thinks if she lets Sabrina’s toothpaste splatter accumulate long enough, she’ll notice.”
“Yeah, well, if I didn’t intervene, the counter would be more toothpaste than porcelain by now.”
“You’re being unrealistic,” I say. “The entire apartment would be toothpaste.”

Asuka and Nana looked at each other automatically.
Why does this boy know about the death blog? Just as Asuka thought that, Nana stood up.
“Why are you suddenly sating this stuff?! Don’t scare Asuka!” Nana yelled and glared at Fushigi. But Fushigi’s expression didn’t change, and he just kept walking toward them.
“It’s the phone,” Fushigi said.
“A phone?” Nana repeated.
“Your phone is cursed.”

“Consider it my official olive branch.” He pushed the box toward me. “Along with me not mentioning how you broke the truce by insulting my observational skills, which are excellent, by the way.”
Only Josh could claim credit for not doing something he just did.
Instead of arguing with him, I poked at the cupcake with suspicion. “Did you poison it?” There was a difference between being civil and buying someone their favourite cupcake unprompted.
“Nah, I was in a rush. Maybe next time.”

The hole leads through into darkness. I use my torch to check out our surroundings. We’re in a long narrow passageway that run behind the sets. To my right, there’s a flimsy partition separating us from the showroom. To my left, I can reach out and touch the bare metal of the building’s outer wall.
It feels like we’ve found a pocket of dead space hidden behind the cosiness of all the fake living rooms. There’s nothing her except some discarded plastic wrap and a few tatty cardboard boxes. Lots of dust. I don’t think anyone’s been down here for a very long time.

The elves stopped singing and stood back. Izzy and Benji spun round to see a gigantic red sled appear out of thin air above them, and circle down very fast towards where they were standing. The sleigh was even more incredible than Izzy could have dreamt it to be.
Shimmeringly shiny, ridonkulously red, and monstrously massive!
But that wasn’t the most wonderful thing about it. Most wonderful, Izzy thought, were the powerful creatures pulling it. She counted eight in total, striding through the air side by side, their antlers gleaming. The flying reindeer!

I shuddered.
No matter how well trained they were, they were as vulnerable as anyone else while asleep. Concern for a certain guard form the Rise surfaced, and fear pierced my chest and stomach.
A massacre could be minutes away from happening.
Worse yet, the curse would spread, and I more than anyone knew how quickly it could ravage a city until nothing but blood pooled in the streets.

Most tales of cryptids reach back decades or centuries, long enough ago that sometimes the original sighting is lost to time or lacks important details. In Delaware, we have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new cryptid. It is called the Prime Hook Swamp Creature, and it might be the most darling cryptid since the jackalope. Also, I’m sort of forced to go in this direction because Delaware, as the second tiniest state in the union – barely a cleft of Maryland – is so small it records almost no cryptid sightings. Other than Bigfoot – he’s everywhere. But this book isn’t The United States of Bigfoot.

Who was this Lady Wallop?
According to the Odde Argus, she was the acting chair of the Order. Acting chair might sound like something you would find in a theatre, but Grampa Banks explained it meant that she was the boss, for now. Some people would do anything to feel important, and Miss Bunch had seen Lady Wallop out and about on the night of the murder.
