  1. I love this series! I want to start from the beginning and read them all again.

  2. This is one of my all-time favorite mystery series.

    Here's my Friday 56 post:

  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.

  4. I've read some of Sue Grafton's books - but not this one. I'd like to.

  5. An ad for chainsaws. That cracked me up! Great dialogue.

  6. Oh great choice! I've actually featured her books on my blog at one point! I had the idea to read them all A- Z lol Are you doing that? :)

    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.

    1. Welcome to the 56! I hope to see you regularly!

  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!

  13. Happy anniversary! Sorry the international guys out of a giveaway)))

  14. Love Sue Grafton's series. Good intros.

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. 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

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
