REVIEW:
Great cinematography!
The hubby and I watched this together. I had seen him play the game a few times, but my knowledge of the game is slim-to-none. I didn't know the story or the characters, other than the role he played as the assassin. This is where the hubby could fill me in, knowing the game inside and out.
The first thing he noticed was how much story they added to an already existing story, though that was minimal to begin with. There were a couple of moments that he was lost at what was happening, since it di…

Author Spring Rituals
Spring is wonderful because I like to walk outside and escape the treadmill.  Spring also means getting the garden ready—my husband and I both like flowers.  We have lots of roses and the Chrysler Imperial is my favorite.   Our family gets together before Easter so the grandkids can dye eggs and bake a bunny cake and then we cook out.  Spring is fun because it’s beautiful and it means summer is coming!

#Win A Baby For The Deputy by Cathy McDavid (US)

CATHY MCDAVID made it her goal to read every Walter Farley book ever written when she was in the third grade. Who knew such an illustrious ambition would eventually lead to a lifelong love of all things Western and a career writing contemporary romances for Harlequin? With more than 1 million books sold, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author is a member of the prestigious Romance Writers of America’s Honor Roll. An “almost” Arizona native and mom to "fairly" grownup twins, she lives with her own real-life sweetheart and spends her days penning stories about good-looking cowboys riding the range, busting a bronc, and sweeping gals off their feet. It a tough job, but she’s willing to make the sacrifice.

Wildcat by Sara Paretsky (7)

Kindle: 842 KBPrint Length: 48 pagesPublisher: Witness Impulse (March 7, 2017)ASIN: B01N5EKGTQ
V.I. Warshawski developed her strength and sense of justice at a very early age.  It’s 1966 and on the south side of Chicago racial tensions are at an all-time high. Dr. Martin Luther King is leading marches at Marquette Park and many in the neighborhood are very angry. With nothing but a bicycle, eighty-two cents in her pocket, and her Brownie camera hanging from her wrist, Victoria sneaks off to Marquette Park alone to protect her father Tony, a police officer who is patrolling the crowds. What begins as a small adventure and a quest to find her father and make sure he is safe turns into something far more dangerous.  As the day goes on and the conflict at the park reaches a fever pitch Victoria realizes she must use her courage and ingenuity if she wants to keep herself and her family members out of harm’s way.

XMen Apocalypse

Rated PG 144 minutes
AMAZON US   |   AMAZON CA   |   AMAZON UK


Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
