The Friday 56 (With Instagram 56)

Welcome to Week 231!

With wedding plans in full force, I have done very little reading.
I'm still reading the same book from last week, Made With Love.
I feel terrible I haven't read more.









Rules:

*Grab a book, any book.

*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader

(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. 
*It's that simple.


Or join The Friday 56 on Instagram!
Rules:
* Grab a book and find a creative way to showcase your 56.
It can be a photo of the book and the 56 in comments, or whatever you come up with.
Make sure to use the hashtag #Friday56
*Add your Instagram url to the Linky.

Noah had stepped in and tried to be a good influence on his nephew. The thing was, it was hard trying to save someone who didn't want to be saved.

  3. Congrats on your wedding! I can imagine you're too busy preparing to have much time for reading.

    That quote has so much truth to it but some people take a long time to learn it.

Great pick Freda I wanted to say Congrats on your Wedding and sadly goodbye I love participating in your meme but I would no longer be participating in it sorry it was fun at the beginning for me but please forgive me for not going into to much details about leaving because I really don't like complaining but it has been fun and you are an amazing person and I wish you the best in everything you do. Can you please delete my link from the Linky because I try to do it but I can't find a delete button because I already deleted my post on my page. Take care and have a wonderful weekend my friend.

  12. Yes, it is hard to help someone who doesn't want to be saved.

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
