The Friday 56 (45) The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

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

My 56 this week comes from The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. The quote below is from page 51 instead since page 56 is an illustration.

Synopsis from Goodreads...

An orphan and a thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy train station. He desperately believes a broken automation will make his dreams come true. But when his world collides with an eccentric girl and a bitter old man, Hugo's undercover life, and his most precious secret, are put in jeopardy...

The Invention of Hugo Cabret"Reluctantly, one by one, Hugo pulled out dozens of objects: screws and nails and bits of metal, gears and crumpled playing cards, tiny pieces of clockworks, cogs, and wheels."--The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

  2. I haven't read this but I have watched the film! I usually don't do it in that order but in my defense I didn't know at the time it was a book! Definitely on my TBR though!
