I just realized I answered May's question....  OOPS.

Stephen King. I mean, who wouldn't want to peek inside his brain. Between writing, living and everything in between, I just know it would be epic. And maybe scary.  🙂

  6. I read all the Lemony Snicket book several years ago. It's a great book series! Have you watched the Netflix TV series?

    Stephen King would be an interesting author to interview.

  7. I used to LOVE reading Stephen King when I was younger but now I've moved towards paranormal romance.
    I suppose I'd love to meet/interview ALL of my go-to authors! Lol!
    Felicity Heaton, Teresa Gabelman and Dianne Duvall are top of my list though because I just can’t get enough of their stories. They all write female leads with the characteristics I admire; intelligence, resilience, self-reliance (they NEVER wait to be rescued), they have some form of humour be it dry, sarcastic or dirty and have loads of gumption. I want to know if they base their characters on an ideal or people they know. ;-)

  9. Yes! Stephen King, I mean have you ever thought that there are characters and story ideas he has thought of that did not make the cut. His brain and imagination are just brilliant. I agree, it could be quite frightening to know what is going on in his mind.

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.

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…

As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all.

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…
