Chapter 6

Vampires may turn to dust when killed, but one thing remains behind--their fangs.

  1. OoOoO I'm reading a book with vampires too (Son of No One), but I'm not liking it as much as I'm expected to. Are you enjoying this one? :)

  2. Huh, I wonder why the fangs remain? The bones don't so why the teeth?

  3. Sounds interesting, especially since I've been to Bruges. I'd read this book just to revisit that delightful city.

    1. This is the 1st in a new series, but it also ties into her last series, the Ivy Granger books.

  7. I like the caricature type cover and am curious why the teeth are left behind. Trophies, perhaps?

  9. Vampires are perfect for October. Fangs being left behind? I'm seeing a character who likes to hold on to them as souvenirs.

  10. This would have made a good book for the FrightFall Read A Thon.

  11. Sounds good! I've been wanting to read more paranormal lately and this one looks fun!

  12. I'm on "Team Trophy". I was thinking of a beaded necklace with fang accents. Weird, I know. But that's just how I roll. :p

  15. I never knew that about vampires. I will have to add it to my new knowledge bank about the, :) Sounds like a fun read for this month. I just made my "creepy" book display for the school library and kids come running for these types of books. Anne's Friday Quotes

The Invisible Man

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…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



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…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
