April Monthly News

Welcome to the April edition of the monthly news!
It was kind of a boring month. 
My husband's birthday came and went. We went to The Keg. It's our favorite place to go, though this particular experience was sub-par.
Easter came and went, and I went to my brother's. My sister-in-law is a champ. She fed 28 people!! And to think, we weren't even all there. 3 of my sisters and their families were absent.  Yup, I sure do feel blessed when I look at how big my family is. Having so many siblings is awesome sometimes.
I'm averaging a book a week it seems. The older I get, the slower my pace. I wish I could read more but I just don't have the ambition at the moment. With work, and life in general, I guess I am happy I still read. Do you see a change in your reading habits?

  1. One book a week is not bad. For me it depends entirely of what I have to do. I was recently travelling and that puts down the number of books I read. When I am home and about, I can read a book a day sometimes. So far this year I have read 38 books. Breaking it up it is: Jan - 9, Feb - 12, March - 12 and April 5! All reflecting what else there is in my life, which I think is a good way. Just shows that you never have to be bored if you have nothing specific to do. Just grab a book!

  2. I love Penny Marshall. I've been wanting to read this one for a while now. I tried Obsidian a few years ago but I hated the alpha male's abusive personality. So I set it aside and haven't picked it up again.

    I think a book a week is amazing. That's kind of my usual yearly goal is 4-5 books a month. I just enjoy other things too so sometimes I don't get in as much reading as I would like. So many books so little time.

    1. Penny's book was worth it. I hope you will try Obsidian again. I get why you put it down, but it gets better. :-)

  3. Happy May!

    I wanted to thank you for all the times you've added my link to your linky xxx I often write a post and forget to link up, partly because of the time zone difference, I feel...

    Hope you're having a good day! I am soon to prepare for tomorrow's post - getting to the end of my series now lol

    Take care!

  4. I haven't seen that cover of Obsidian before. Love it! If you like that first book in the Lux series, you'll be happy to know that the series just gets better and better with each book!

  6. 28 people? That's really impressive. I had a rather quiet Easter myself. There are definitely different times of the year where I want to read and times where I really have to push myself to pick up a book. I hope you enjoy your May!

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
