  1. Sounds like a perfect start-of-summer read.

  2. I think the oldest novel I've read is Gulliver's Travels, printed in 1726, though I think I read a very abridged, making it acceptable for young readers. My Friday quotes and a short review of WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE

    I had a look on my Goodreads shelf and my 1988 copy Sourcery (Discworld #5) by Sir Terry Pratchett was the oldest but I was reading books before I discovered Goodreads 😉 and was forever picking up old books from my local charity shops – it’s where I found my little copy of A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that was published in the early 1900s, the 1970’s paperback copies of Dennis Wheatley’s The Devil Rides Out and my treasured 1930’s copy of Dion Fortune’s The Sea Priestess.

    However, I have also read a loved an number of William Shakespeare's classics - A Midsummer Night's Dream is probably my favourite.

  9. For the BBH, I go back to Ancient Greece with Theogony by Hesiod. We had to study Latin in high school (I know, he's a Greek author but we read it in Latin) so my oldest reading comes from that time. Have a nice week!!

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
