Bird Box
Most people ignored the outrageous reports on the news. But they became too frequent, they became too real. And soon, they began happening down the street. Then the Internet died. The television and radio went silent. The phones stopped ringing. And we couldn't look outside anymore. Malorie raises the children the only way she can; indoors. The house is quiet. The doors are locked, the curtains are closed, mattresses are nailed over the windows. They are out there. She might let them in. The children sleep in the bedroom across the hall. Soon she will have to wake them. Soon she will have to blindfold them. Today they must leave the house. Today they will risk everything.

My 56:
"Move!" she screams.
"...who here has gone mad?"
The man cackles. It sounds like his laughter rises toward the sky he speaks of. She thinks to ask, How far back did you see one? But she doesn't.
"Leave us!" Marjorie yells.
What's your 56?


  1. Oh God, this sounds slightly terrifying! I haven't read a really scary book in a long time, so this is slightly throwing me off! I hope you enjoy it though! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Sounds like something out of a nightmare!

  5. Wondering what's out there. Is it a zombie or something eles? I've not heard of this book but will be checking it out. Sounds delightfully scary and that's my kind of reading!

  6. Sounds good! Is this a rewrite of The Birds? Love the excerpt?

  7. Ooh, this sounds interesting. I love the title and the cover too.

  8. The book's title and cover made me think of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds." I'm wondering what happened -- and what will happen next. Deliciously terrifying!
    Here's the link to my Friday post: SIX MONTHS IN MONTANA.

  9. Sounds creepily awesome!

    Happy weekend!
