The Friday 56 (41) Coraline by Neil Gaiman

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice where every Friday you pick a book and turn to page 56 or 56%, and select a sentence or a few, as long as it's not a spoiler. For the full rules, visit the the page HERE

Synopsis from Goodreads...

Coraline's often wondered what's behind the locked door in the drawing room. It reveals only a brick wall when she finally opens it, but when she tries again later, a passageway mysteriously appears. Coraline is surprised to find a flat decorated exactly like her own, but strangely different. And when she finds her "other" parents in this alternate world, they are much more interesting despite their creepy black button eyes. When they make it clear, however, that they want to make her theirs forever, Coralinebegins a nightmarish game to rescue her real parents and three children imprisoned in a mirror. With only a bored-through stone and an aloof cat to help, Coraline confronts this harrowing task of escaping these monstrous creatures...

Coraline"She lit the candlewick with a match and watched it sputter and light, then she picked up the black key."--Coraline by Neil Gaiman

  1. Strangely enough, I haven't read this book yet! Or seen the movie.
    If I had to pick a favorite candy, I would go with Laffy Taffy or Starburst Jelly Beans. Boring, I know, but finding allergy friendly candy can sometimes take quite a while.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I saw the movie first (a long time) which is why I wanted to give the book a try. Also I haven't had Laffy Taffy in a long time, and Starburst Jelly Beans are pretty good. Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
