REVIEW:
Go Canada!
This book is filled with so many wonderful stories about how great Canada is, and how wonderful the people are that live there. Made me proud to be Canadian reading some the stories of community, helping one another while expecting nothing in return. It restored my faith in humanity a bit. 
I also loved there was famous names, like one story was by NHL legend, Vince Lecalvier. Reading his coming up story, and reading some of the quotes by hockey greats I love like Wendel Clark and Bobby Orr, really made my day. Anytime is the right time for anything hockey.
Yup, I'm Canadian.
This story is a great tribute to this wonderful land and its citizens, but also inspirational to be a better Canadian in this great nation.

5/5

  1. I just love reading those short stores. I have a Chicken Soup for the Scrapbookers soul that I pull out and read every now and then. They do warm the soul.

  2. Sounds like a fun read, Freda. I remember shooting over to Canada from Michigan to see my friend. When I got there it was late at night and the snow drifts were as tall as me. She answered the door in her bathing suit! Had many splendid times there.

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…

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…
