The Friday 56: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

Grab a book, any book. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader. Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you. Post it.

It ends, the music replaced by applause, and Toby sidles up to the bar, orders a Jack and a Coke because they’ll give it to him for free, and somewhere between the first sip and the third he sees her, and smiles, and for an instant Addie thinks- hopes, even now- that he remembers something, because he looks at her as if he knows her, but the truth is simply that he wants to; attraction can look an awful lot like recognition in the wrong light.

This is one of the most beautiful passages in the book. I absolutely loved it. I loved this entire book. It was beautiful. It was tragic. It hit all the feels. I fully recommend it. I plan to reread it again one day.
