The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple – turn to page 56 in your current read (or 56% in your e-reader) and post a few non-spoilery sentences.
This week’s quote is from The Dragon With A Chocolate Heart, a middle-grade book by Stephanie Burgis.
What was the point of being human if I couldn’t be around chocolate? I’d finally found the thing I wanted to work with for the rest of my life, but no one here would even let me near it. If only I had my wings and claws! Then I could go ahead and just take it, like a proper dragon, whether they liked it or not.
If I ever saw that dastardly food mage again, I would bite him! I didn’t care if my human teeth were too blunt and puny to do real damage.
