Stuber #Movie

AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER!
RATED R
94 minutes
AMAZON

SYNOPSIS:
A mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu picks up a grizzled detective who is hot on the trail of a sadistic, bloodthirsty terrorist and finds himself thrust into a harrowing ordeal where he has to keep his wits, himself unharmed, and work with his passenger while maintaining his high-class rating.
Starring Dave Bautista and Mira Sorvino.



REVIEW: Great movie!
The hubby and I watched it together and we both loved it. There was tons of action and fighting scenes, which the hubby appreciated. I was all for the story line and comical bits. The Uber driver was a hoot!
This is one of the best date-night movies we have seen together for a while. It has the best for both of us.
I can't believe I didn't hear of it before though. This movie should have had more media coverage I think. It is a good one and I feel like not enough people know about it.
Definitely one I think you should watch!

Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman (36)

Kindle: 841 KBPrint: 416 pagesPublisher: William Morrow (October 13, 2009)ASIN: B000FCKENQ

AMAZON

God is dead. Meet the kids. Fat Charlie Nancy’s normal life ended the moment his father dropped dead on a Florida karaoke stage. Charlie didn’t know his dad was a god. And he never knew he had a brother. Now brother Spider is on his doorstep—about to make Fat Charlie’s life more interesting . . . and a lot more dangerous.
He makes things up and writes them down. Which takes us from comics, (like SANDMAN) to novels, (like ANANSI BOYS and AMERICAN GODS) to short stories, (some are collected in SMOKE AND MIRRORS) and to occasionally movies, (like Dave McKean's MIRRORMASK or the NEVERWHERE TV series, or his own short film, A SHORT FILM ABOUT JOHN BOLTON). In his spare time he reads, sleep, eats and tries to keep the blog at www.neilgaiman.com more or less up to date.

I'm still on the same book. I've had some headaches with the weather changes, and it's kept me from reading as much as I would have liked to. I am almost finished so you will see a new book next week.

#Win What They Meant For Evil by Rebecca Deng (US)

Many stories have been told about the famous Lost Boys, but now for the first time, a Lost Girl shares her hauntingly beautiful and inspiring story.
One of the first unaccompanied refugee children to enter the United States in 2000, after South Sudan’s second civil war took the lives of most of her family, Rebecca’s story begins in the late 1980s when, at the age of four, her village was attacked and she had to escape. WHAT THEY MEANT FOR EVIL is the account of that unimaginable journey. With the candor and purity of a child, Rebecca recalls how she endured fleeing from gunfire, suffering through hunger and strength-sapping illnesses, dodging life-threatening predators-lions, snakes, crocodiles, and soldiers alike-that dogged her footsteps, and grappling with a war that stole her childhood.
Her story is a lyrical, captivating portrait of a child hurled into wartime, and how through divine intervention, she came to America and found a new life full of joy, hope, and redemption.

It all begins with a hot air balloon trip and three bottles of champagne. Allan and Julius are ready for some spectacular views, but they’re not expecting to land in the sea and be rescued by a North Korean ship, and they could never have imagined that the captain of the ship would be harboring a suitcase full of contraband uranium, on a nuclear weapons mission for Kim Jong-un.

Table 19 #Movie

AVAILABLE NOW!
RATED PG
88 minutes
AMAZON
Ex-maid of honor Eloise, (Anna Kendrick) - having been relieved of her duties after being unceremoniously dumped by the best man via text - decides to hold her head up high and attend her oldest friend's wedding anyway. She finds herself seated at the 'random' table in the back of the ballroom with a disparate group of strangers, most of whom should have known to just send regrets (but not before sending something nice off the registry). As everyone's secrets are revealed, Eloise learns a thing or two from the denizens of Table 19. Friendships - and even a little romance - can happen under the most unlikely circumstances.

REVIEW: That was such a cute movie!
It made me laugh, it had me reminiscing about my own wedding, and it had me hopeful that Eloise would get the guy.
Table 19, and it's ecclectic group of seaters, is where I would have want to be seated. They were the most fun and genuine people at the event. That nanny was somet…
