  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!!

  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!

  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.

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

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.

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…

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…
