  2. Enjoy your read, Freda! I just finished reading The Red Sparrow, interesting to see more books about Russians :) I know the movie didn't do well in the reviews, but I liked the movie way better than the book...Go figure!

    Happy Easter!

  7. I've never really been a fan of Dostoevsky to be honest. I've read Crime and Punishment twice; for high school and then uni. It was a struggle both times. I hope you like his writing though :)

  9. Woman, you can read much deeper books than I can. If I even tried to read Dostoevsky at this point in my life, my brain would explode! LOL Thank you for adding me to Linky.

  10. Just read this for my litcourse. Makes you rather depressing, does it not? However, it is a fine example of the new realistic style of writing that came up at this time.

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
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…
