Check out this read on Amazon.
I'm still on this one. It's 703 pages and I'm almost halfway through. Having 3 jobs really gets in the way of reading sometimes.....
I'm posting early due to work, but the IG56 will be added after work tonight.
Here is my snippet from page 296 on my kindle, about 42%...

NO BB THIS WEEK.


Audio books vs Ebook? If the world stopped printing books which would you prefer between the two?
A: Ebook, definitely. I get distracted too easily for audio books.

  3. I love audiobooks but can only listen when I am doing something mindless like computer games or puzzles, or walking the dog. My book was Where the Crawdads Sing

  6. I agree with you about ebooks vs. audio. Definitely ebooks for me for the same reason. I get distracted easily. Have a great weekend!

  7. That cover is fabulous. And such a long book. I love that once in a while. Sounds like he has a decision to make.
    Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful weekend, Freda:)

  8. Love the cover, but that's a lot of pages. It would take me months to get through it! Hope you enjoy the read.
    Happy Friday!

  10. I don't know how you do it with three jobs. I can see how reading time would be precious in that case. I haven't read anything by Maas before, but I have heard great things about her books.

    My choice would be e-books too. I do enjoy audiobooks, but they don't quite fit into my life right now the way they do for others. I understand the distraction issue--that's true for me too.

    Have a great weekend.

  11. I loved Empire of Storms... Except the ending. If I'd known about the ending, I'd have waited until KoA was out before reading it, lol. Of course, now I have KoA, I'm too scared to read it.
    Whoever said readers were logical people?!

  12. I used to get distracted when listening to audio books, too, but since I started knitting I can do both. I listen as much as I read these days.

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

#Win Game of Thrones Season 8 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE NOW! RATED PG 425 minutes AMAZON 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 favor
