  5. I have read a couple of books by Gaiman, which I really enjoyed, and this one keeps nagging at me. I will have to read it soon, especially before watching the movie! Emma at Words And Peace/France Book Tours

  6. I'm a little jealous that you're still reading Neil Gaiman. I always like to spend time on a book, especially by a favourite author, Thanks for sharing and hosting.

  11. I'm so glad to see a few more teasers from this one! I keep thinking about picking it but have always chickened out for reasons I don't understand at all. It's definitely on my TBR now!

  12. Glad to hear you're still enjoying American Gods, and that you liked Assassin's Creed. I loved it when I saw it in the cinema back in January.

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.

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!
