Happy weekend to you all!

Please excuse the stupid links that Linky adds to my link up. I am frustrated but there is nothing I can do about it. I am not even able to delete them. Please do not click on them. You will know which ones they are.


Check out this read on Amazon.



Here is my snippet from page 56% on my Kindle...

If you could take the place of any fictional character, who would it be and why? 
Can't say I would want to switch places with any character, to be honest.

  5. Thank you so much for the giveaway. It was such a lovely surprise. l

    The book on Penny Marshall looks wonderful. I bet that would do well on audio, if she's the one narrating. I used to love her on Laverne & Shirley. It was so sad when she passed away.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. I had the chance to meet Penny Marshall, Cindy Williams, and some of the other cast members from Laverne & Shirley. One of them (Not Cindy) didn't have a good thing to say about Penny. I shocked that a how candid the person was in what they told us about her.

    Also, where is the sign up for you Linky? I can't find it. I haven't joined in for the past month so I sorry if you've already mentioned where to find it. Thanks! Lisa Ks Book Review at https://lisaksbookthoughts.blogspot.com/2019/04/its-cozy-food-friday-that-means-its.html

    1. I'm shocked someone was so candid to speak ill of her. Even though her and Cindy had tough times, they always stayed friends. It's really a great read.
      As for the Linky, if ever you cannot find it, just leave your url in the comments and I will add it. I usually catch your posts on Bloglovin, and can add if you don't. Not a problem.

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…
