FAVORITE BOOK OF APRIL:



AWARDS RECEIVED:

I received this award from Velvet at: http://vvb32reads.blogspot.com/ She is an amazing blogger, has a terrific blog, and is the reason I have a new -found curiosity for Steampink. Yeah you read it right! Check her blog out!!!

I received a special prize from my blogger friend Marcia at http://teawithmarce.blogspot.com/
The prize was up to $15 at The Book Depository, my choice. She gave this to many blogger friends of hers, that have supported her.
In lieu of her kindness and generosity, I asked her to give mine back, and donate a book, new or used, in my name, to a shelter or library in her area. She gave, and in turn I gave. It feels good. I suggest we all give, even a book.
She is indeed going to donate a recommendation by me, A Note From An Old Acquaintance by Bill Walker to her local library.
Thanks again Marcia, you truly are a gem!

I also received a new award from Molly at http://buuklvr81.blogspot.com

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
