Happy HALLOWEEN weekend to you all!


I'm posting early, as I have to work, then it's a fun night in store!
Sadly I have no book to share this week. I am just about to begin a book, but haven't touched it yet. 

Halloween is my favorite day of the year so I am allowed to slack off right?! I'll leave you with a photo of my costume... Share a link in the comments if you post your costume. I'd love to see them!

99 minutes
AMAZON
Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh plunges audiences into the suspense and drama of a resilient woman's fight to reclaim her freedom even as she risks her own sanity. Still scarred from the trauma of being terrorized by a stalker, Sawyer Valentini (Claire Foy, The Crown) receives treatments at the Highland Creek Behavioral Center. However, shortly after she unwittingly commits herself to the mental institution and is unable to leave, she catches sight of a facility staffer who, she is convinced, is actually her stalker.

Starring Claire Foy.
