Thursday - Forgotten Treasure
Sure we've all read about Freedom and Mockingjay but we likely have a book we wish would get more attention by book bloggers, whether it's a forgotten classic or under marketed contemporary fiction. This is your chance to tell the community why they should consider reading this book.

Life, In Spite of Me - Kristen Jane Anderson & Tricia Goyer

This book in an instant changed how I feel about so many things. That is why I chose it to showcase here.
When I first got the book, I knew I was in for an emotional read, but I had no idea the profound effect Kristen and her story would have on me.
I have been where she was, that depressive place that lonely souls go to, so I immediately understood the thoughts she had at times. Though nothing prepared me for what I was about to learn.
When I finished the book, I put in down on my lap and cried. Not from pain, but from pure joy that things happened the way they did. Not only was this amazing young woman able to project her feelings and thoughts on paper, she connected with my inner being.
Now, since reading it, I just can't stop thinking about what I learned. It now makes me thankful for what I have, and also to know life could be much, much worse. So to keep a chin up and keep truckin' on. What I have pales in comparison to some, by way of problems. I think about that when I get down now, and I thank this book for part of that.
I definitely think you should read it. It may not change your life like it did mine, but it will make you a better person for a day. Her story has that deep of an impact!


  1. that's so special - when you can connect with a book like that.

  2. It's great when you find a book that just speaks to you, isn't it?

  3. I think there are some books that just touch our soul. It sounds very special.

  4. This is also a favorite book of mine.

  5. I haven't heard of this book, but it sounds interesting and inspirational. I'll have to take a closer look!

  6. Sounds very emotional. I'll keep it in mind.

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
