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??

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…
