I can't believe how fast this past week of Armchair BEA has gone by. 
You can read all my posts above to catch up, if you haven't read them this week.

The best day for me was giveaway day. I love giving back to you guys... I mean really, this blog would be redundant without you. It was also great visiting other blogs, new and old, and learning more about everyone. Loved the different opinions in books as well. Always nice when I find a book that interests me that I haven't heard of before... or see a book that I have been pining for and a lucky someone has managed to read it already. It's great getting someones' take on a book before I get into it too.

The huge highlight for me was winning a prize for my "Keeping It Real" post. I chose a book by Robbie Robertson titled, Legends, Icons and Rebels. Can't wait to check that book out, as you saw in my non-fiction post I really love a good memoir. Even though this says it's only part memoir... even part is good to me.

So now this ABEA is over and life will slow down again, I will get back to reading. Yes, my books have missed me terribly this week. I'm finishing, Last Train to Omaha, which I have a giveaway for as well. The I will start on Jack Templar Monster Academy. It's the second book in a Middle Grade series. What will you be reading??

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
