This is a challenge for every blogger who reviews books. We all have a stack or more that we haven't got to yet. I plan on tackling that TBR like nobody's business in 2016, so this challenge is made for me.


GOAL: 12 Past-Due Review Books

  1. Just Don't Call Me Ma'am - Anna Mitchael (2010 TBR)
  2. Slip Of The Knife - Denise Mina (2010 TBR)
  3. Corked - Kathryn Borel JR (2010 TBR)
  4. Detectives Don't Wear Seat Belts- Cici McNair (2010 TBR)
  5. The Happiness Project - Gretchin Rubin (2010 TBR)


QUARTER UPDATE
As you see, I've got 3 of the 12 books done. Yeah, I thought I'd be at a better pace, but there's a reason they sat on my shelf this long... seems they are usually a 2 out of 5 rating. So not great... But I don't give up that easy and hopefully there's a gem in there somewhere.


HALF WAY UPDATE

I moved up one lousy book. Basically, if I don't pick up the pace then I will fail the challenge. I hate to fail, so I best get on it. The one thing I do notice, is all the book are from 2010. I also notice they weren't that great... Was 2010 the year of bad books??


**No compensation was received for posting. This post is part of an annual challenge.

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
