  3. The last Linky I posted did the same. I think they need some kind of spam filter or moderation option....
    Congrats on figuring out Edelweiss! I can't seem to get a handle on it and I never get approved there. Which is weird since I've never had a problem on NG.

    1. I will definitely be reading them in order but not right away. I bought this one the day media learned of her passing. I felt it a great tribute to start the series.

  7. I love Sue Grafton's series. I need to finish off the series still (next is U). It's one of my favorite mystery series. Thank you for hosting!

  8. I read A Is For Alibi many years ago. Sue Grafton was a great writer. It's too bad she didn't finish the series before her death.

    I prefer to use Netgalley.

  9. I need to finish the series--I should probably re-start it, it's been so long.

  11. I got an account at Edelweiss but don't recall requesting anything. I didn't get on with the interface. I much prefer NetGalley's simpler approach.

  12. I've never read this series and it's so famous! Thanks for playing along on Book Beginnings!

    Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

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…
