I asked Taylor how did she come about writing this book, and this is what she said:

It's funny but the initial idea sparked from a class I was taking. It was an elective called Great Books. I had chosen to read about Greek Mythology and fell in love with the topic. So I wrote some short stories about it, but never writing a full length novel, I didn't want to try. It was kind of intimidating sitting down and preparing to write a book. So instead I stuck with my short stories and stayed in my comfort zone. 

Then I had this crazy dream about a full plot and everything that had to do with Greek Mythology stories but with a new twist on them. I woke up and wrote the dream down and started writing that same day. I wrote this book in about a month since I was so into it and the ideas kept flowing. The plot has stayed the same ever since the dream, just minor parts have changed.

But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax.

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
