Happy weekend to you all!
I saw this Canadian classic making blogger rounds recently and thought, 'yes'! I won an extensive ebook collection years ago and felt it a perfect time to reread book 1.

Check out this read on Amazon.
Here is my snippet from approximately 56 pages in... 





Book Beginnings leave your links in the comments if you didn't join in the Friday 56.










If you could travel back in time to purchase the first printing of a specific novel, what book would that be?
A: East of Eden by John Steinbeck. It was such a profound read to me and really cultivated my love for true literature.

  3. Freda, are you aware that there is a very irritating Linky add thing that happens every time we click on someone's hyperlink from your page? We have to wait at least 5 seconds looking at an add or a blank screen before it redirects to the site we were trying to reach. It has been this way for the past month or so.

    1. I am aware, but unfortunately this is a Linky issue and I have no control over it. It is part o their new updates and it drives me nuts as well. I hope it doesn't deter you from your continued participation and visits.

  5. This is a real classic. They are translated into Swedish, and I remember them from when I was young. I don't know why I never read them. Maybe I should try now!

  9. I've been meaning to read the Anne of Green Gables series, as I do own all the books, but I've never gotten around to reading them yet. Maybe I'll have time in 2019.

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.

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…

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…
