Friday 56:
I was fighting to bring myself back to reality, to the safety and comfort of my own bed where I knew my body was resting. I began to scream, but no sound came.
This week I am reading The Whizbang Machine by Danielle A. Vann. I got this for review from the author. Here is the description from Amazon:
After years of running from his tragic past, Jack Yale books a flight home. With him is a typewriter that is intended to be a gift for his granddaughter, Elizabeth.The minute Elizabeth's fingers cradle the large black and cream keys the machine responses: popping, sizzling, and roaring to life with a Whiz-Whiz-BANG!

Elizabeth quickly discovers the typewriter has powers beyond anything she hasever seen. The more she types, the more the machine spells out guarded secrets. Each secret leads them deeper into a haunted past. Each secret must be revealed in order to set history straight and remove a curse that has been on their family for centuries. 


  1. The synopsis sounds great. Thanks for mentioning this book.

  2. I am in love with the cover of this book. It is going on my TBR for that and the 56 alone. I mean, is the character (Elizabeth, I assume) having an out of body experience? So many questions. Thanks for posting this one. Here's my Friday 56 and Book Beginnings if you're interested. Happy reading!

  3. I'm so intrigued!!!!!
    Happy weekend!

  4. That cover is super intriguing and gives off a subtle steampunk vibe; the blurb is attention-grabbing! I might just be looking this book up on goodreads; thank you SO much for sharing with us!
