  1. I'm such a fan of long-winded titles. Hope this is a good one. Happy Friday!

  2. My grandmother just celebrated her 102 birthday. If only we will be so lucky... Jonasson's book sounds like it will be a good one I hope you are enjoying it, Freda!

    I enjoy audiobooks, but don't manage to get through many. I've only listened to one book this year and it took me over a month. I liked the book, just making time to listen is my problem.

    Have a great weekend! And thank you for hosting!

  3. I've heard that this isn't as funny as the first book about the 100 year old man - not sure I would like it.

  4. It definitely sounds interesting!
    It's a shame you don't get along with audiobooks, they're a life saver for me although I'm very picky about narrators.

  6. I didn't know there was a sequel to his first adventures! :)

  7. Hope you enjoy your new read. I'm sure it's a fun and entertaining story.

  8. Ohh a sequel? How did i not know about this book? :O Thanks for sharing...i want to read it even more now. & Thanks for hosting too!

  9. I normally stick with one format per title.

  10. I liked the first book in this series. It made me laugh out loud. My Friday Quotes

  11. Yea...not being an audiobook fan would shut the issue down.
    I enjoy audiobooks, so there have been times when I have purchased the audio title after (or while) reading.

The Invisible Man


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. 

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.
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…

#Win Game of Thrones Season 8 (US/CDN)

425 minutes
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…
