  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!

  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!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
