  1. Hi Freda,
    I've heard The Martin is really good. I'll have to put that on list. Have a great day!

  2. I was surprised by how much I loved The Martian - a great audiobook and they did a good job with the film. Congrats on completing a challenge. I'm not doing any organized challenges this year but I have an ongoing Finish the Series one that I work at each year (not very successfully).

  9. I watched the Martian but haven't read the book yet. Is it worth is if I already saw the movie?

    1. I think the book was better and there were a couple things in the book that were not in the film. I would, just for comparison, or curiosity. :-)

  12. That's great you were able to complete a challenge. I don't really do them, since i tend to have varied taste in my reading all ready and don't like the pressure.

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.

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…
