  1. Love the cover...so ethereal. Great excerpts, too.

  2. I love the covers to the books you featured. Hotel Ruby piqued my interest but they both sound good!

  3. I didn't know this book underwent a cover change. I think I'd be more likely to pick it up with the moon on the cover. There is something very eerie about it. Happy Friday!

  4. Oh dear, now I have another book to read. This looks very good. I think I prefer Hotel for the Lost as a title, although the cover for Hotel Ruby looks better. Hope you enjoy it, and have a lovely weekend.

  5. Funny thing is I had to do a double take when you mentioned "which cover/title". Though I love them both, I have to say the first one really drew my eye.
    Great share!

  6. Tough call! Both covers and titles are intriguing in their own way. I do love a good hotel-based book!

  7. Both covers are striking and both evoke strikingly different emotions. I can't choose! Enjoy them both

  8. Oh boy! This is one for me! I like both covers but leaning towards the first one. It's eerie and mysterious.
    Have a lovely weekend, Freda:)

  11. I can't tell for sure if it is a thriller or mystery or what? It is interesting.

  12. Love Chapter 1 and the word crafting is terrific! Happy Reading!

  13. The covers and "Stay Tonight. Stay Forever" already have me scared! LOL May be to spooky for this woman. I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine... http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewsDOAPC

  14. So is that the same book with two different titles? I have seen the Hotel Ruby around and have wanted to read it. I hope it's good! :)

    1. Yes, it's the same but has been re-named, Hotel of the Lost.

  15. I liked the original Hotel Ruby cover, but the second seems much more spooky.

  16. Hotel for the Lost sounds so exciting and the cover just draws me in making me want more. Even better then that snippet is driving me crazy. A forgotten past? Now I am dying to know what that past is.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the covers for both. Hotel Ruby is on my TBR and I didn't realize that it had another name. This sounds really good. Being from a warm weather area I can identify about the not so sensible scarves!

  18. My eyes are so bad with that tiny print -- I couldn't see it's the same book, new title. Sounds SCARY! Well written, scary.

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…
