Passing through Perfect: The Wyattsville Series, Book 3


The first thing she noticed was that the wicker rocking chair her mama sat in was gone from the front porch. Although it had been just six years, it seemed a lifetime ago. Everything felt strange; different in a way she couldn't put a finger to. She rapped on the door and waited.

  1. I've read other books by this author and adored them, so I'm sure I'd enjoy this one too. Bette Lee Crosby writes in a down-to-earth style, and her characters are believable -- like someone you might know.

  10. That bit made me think of my own life. After my Mom was gone, when I go to places we had gone together, I'll always noticed what has changed since she was alive.

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 Game of Thrones Season 8 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE NOW! RATED PG 425 minutes AMAZON 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 favor
