Martak just stared at her with puzzlement, and she stared back stubbornly.
"You're mad at me, aren't you, Martak?"

PROLOGUE

Ten toes overlapping
Ten fingertips pressing
Five senses blending
Two hearts merging
Minds converging
Each half-soul swirling
In the universe
Unites and pours into
One seamless skin,

A perfect whole.

  1. I love the prologue, gorgeous. I like that she is feisty, as well. Going to possibly be a journey from the 56 to the promise of the prologue.

  2. Love the prologue, it is that type of month isn't it? To swoon and fully engross yourself in romance novels :)

  3. I love the sound of both the prologue and the first sentences! It has a very fairy tale-esque sound to it while the main character also sounds quite spunky! I wonder why Martak is mad. Thanks for hosting :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  12. Sweet. Reminds me of the scene in the 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet where they touch palm to palm.

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: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


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…
