The nearest book is one I’m reading for a blog tour this week: Babydoll by Allyson Roy. I’m not even to page 56 yet, but looking ahead gives us:
“Which reminds me, have you ever met Buxol Peterson? I noticed he supports some of the same nonprofit groups as you.” Although Lana still handled a few loyal psychotherapy clients, she spent a good bit of her time and money fighting the woes of the world though her charities, while pursuing peace and pleasure in her personal life.
I think this is the first time in the four weeks I’ve been participating that the 56-5 formula has failed me. I have to say, that’s not a very interesting quote, and it’s not representative of the book so far. With the main character being a sex therapist, there were sentences that were much more interesting in the first 38 pages.
I think the book will be much more fun than this quote suggests– I hope I’m right! 🙂
