BBAW: Day Five: Saying Goodbye For Another Year

Friday: Share a highlight of this year’s BBAW. Whether it’s a blog you discovered or a book you’re going to read or a way you felt refreshed, this is the day to celebrate the week!


Hi people! Sorry I am late today, was super busy. Better late than never though, so here I am.
Today is an opportunity for me to share some of this year's highlights of the event, though I am sad to say, other than community and meeting new blogs, I have no highlights. BBAW always introduces you to new bloggers and books, so that's not really new. The did away with the awards, and I'm happy and sad about that. It's true, you always see the same blogs getting nominated, but man, they must work their asses off to get that nomination every year. I enjoy supporting those blogs with virtual awards. It gives an extra boost or confidence that the content you put forth readers want and enjoy. I am sad to not be able to give that nudge of love, so I hope Amy reads this, and her crew at BBAW bring it back next year.
I feel like this week went by fast, but am also glad it's over. I love participating, but sometimes it feels like work too. And with that it has it's good and bad moments. I had to stop myself a few times from saying things that might be taken different from how I intended, and it all stemmed around the post from yesterday, Pimp That Book. I can't believe how literal some people take that word, "pimp". If only I could pimp out a book, maybe, just maybe, people would be smarter..... but that can't happen. I may have just started a controversy for the "Blogging Lynch Mob" to take one out of me, but it's a harmless term when referenced with books, so lighten up! Plus, I don't scare easily so go nuts if that's your thing....

See ya next year, and hey, PIMP A BOOK!

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 be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
