  2. I've been tempted to pick up another King novel. It's been a while since I've read him. Enjoy!

  3. I've read only two King novels, but enjoyed them both. Hope you end up like this one. Happy Friday!

  4. That instagram teaser is intense! Like more than just an annoying shirt with a neck that's feels a little too tight. I like the opening too. It hooked me right away. Stephen King is a great story teller. I enjoy his writing. Thanks for sharing, Freda! I hope you have a great weekend.

  5. I haven't read anything by Stephen King, but I've heard a lot of good things about his books. Bag of Bones sounds like an interesting story.

  6. Hi Freda!

    How are you? Long time (again). But it's holidays and I do have a bit more time on my hands.

    I am such a big Stephen King fan, but I haven't read Bag of bones yet! Hopefully in the new year....

  7. That 56 is so suspenseful! I think that Stephen King is definitely one of the best thriller authors out there. I hope that you continue to enjoy this one. :)

  10. Great beginning and curious 56. I've never read King slotting him into the "too scary for me" group of authors. Happy reading!

  14. I liked Bag of Bones but it isn't one of my favorite of King. It (even before the movies) is my all time favorite.

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! 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…
