Q: What authors do you always read and recommend?
A: I always read Chevy Stevens, literally everything, and anything by Morgan Matson, (ironically, I'm reading her only book I haven't read). One is scary and one is lighthearted reads. Depends on what you want but I recommend both.

  8. I haven't read this Morgan Matson either, though I like her. I always want to read whatever Barbara Kingsolver writes and it seems like I always end up reading A.S. King books, and then, of course, there is Jane Austen. But she isn't writing anymore...

  12. I've missed participating in 56 Friday. Hopefully next week! The Unexpected Everything sounds like it is a fun one. I hope you are enjoying it!

    I've heard great things about Chevy Stevens' books. Morgan Matson is new to me. Both are ones I think I should try though!

    Have a great week, Freda. Happy reading!

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…

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…
