The Friday 56 (3 Year Anniversary Bash)

3 years ago today I was passed the torch of The Friday 56 from Storytime With Tonya.
This has been a fun 3 years with you all and reading your posts each week. I have even noticed how regular most of you have become. It's because of your dedication that this special post will have a giveaway. You don't have to participate in The Friday 56 to enter the giveaway, but it would be nice...

Page 156:
"Uh," said Des, anxious to show that he did, at least, know the first thing about parenting, "you're not meant to put them on their stomachs."
The woman fixed him with a strict look.
"Babies with sore tummies sleep better on tummies. You watch him. He not die."

  1. Hah, he's right. Current research says to lay babies on their backs for sleeping but encourages tummy time for playing. :)

  8. Happy 3 years and thank you for the giveaway!

    Sometimes that happens to me - I get stuck on a book because of lack of reading time, nothing against the book though.

    Have a great weekend!

  17. OMG, has it been three years already? I remember when you took this one over. I didn't participate this week (it has been awhile) but I need to get back to posting with you again, I do miss it.
    There is a Joe Hill ebook that I've had my eye on.

  19. Happy 3 years! Every Friday I try to remind myself to participate but I seem to forget. However, since tomorrow is Friday, I am going to set up a post right now! I have no idea what book I'd pick yet, though it would either be a cozy mystery or a historical romance. :)

The Invisible Man

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
