  5. Great choice this week. I'm almost finished with the first book and having fun. I'll be grabbing the rest of the books too. And I want to see the movie. Have a lovely weekend, Freda!

  6. I totally want to read this one. I've had it on my list forever and actually got the hold from the public library. I never did get it started though because I was reading other things. I'm hoping to get to it soon. Great post!!

  7. I have seen these books EVERYWHERE this week, Frida! How, I'm going to have to read them myself! :O)

    Here's my Friday 56 post!

  8. I haven't read the first one in this series yet. I had a copy but donated it to my HS media center during one of my shelf purges because it had been sitting unread for so long. It sounds intriguing. Happy reading!

  9. For some reason, stories like this unnerve me. My brother wanted to see the movie of the first one, and I just couldn't do it. LOL Got to love me. I'd love for you an your readers to check out mine . . . http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewsDOFBK

  11. I am on the list for the first book with Library to Go. I have wondered about the series so decided to give it a try. Don't know when I will get it.

  12. What a coincidence! My Friday 56 is Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children! I am loving it, so I'm sure I'll be reading this one in the future! :)

  13. Wow, that is a powerful book beginning. The movie wasn't really on my radar, maybe I'll have to try the books.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Great quotes - I'm excited to (hopefully) read this series soon!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.


Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
