Happy weekend to you all!
You'll be happy to see I am off Harry Potter. In lieu of Nonfiction November, I went with a memoir of sorts. You will all know who she is, another member of the 27 club. (R.I.P.)
I'm posting early since I'll be at work.

Check out this read on Amazon.
Here is my snippet from 16% on my Kindle. That's how far I am.

  4. I saw a documentary about Amy. Poor thing. She was so talented and so lost. There is a saying that certainly applies to her: "Screwed up people make great art." My quotes are from HEY, KIDDO a graphic memoir.

    1. After reading her fathers' words, even just a little bit, LOST is not a word I would use to describe her. She was far from lost. I highly recommend this book, so you can see from the ones closest to her what she was really like. Documentaries are only perspectives.

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON 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. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. 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

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
