Q:  Do you think that overall work morale would be improved by having a "book lunch", sponsored by the company, at least once a month, or perhaps once a week? 

A: In some jobs I could see it being beneficial, but in retail where I work, not a chance. It's a get-in, get-out, kind of situation.

  1. I like the sound of this one. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Sounds like an exciting read. I hope you enjoy your weekend!

  3. Oooh, 'If You Tell' sounds like a very intense read, but I'm definitely intrigued! And yh, I can see how a retail environment wouldn't really benefit from those kind of things. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  4. Shelly sounds a nightmare. I hope Kathy's sisters sort him out.

  5. This seems to be a harrowing book with all the abuse in it :( Have a lovely weekend!

  6. I am really intrigued by this one! Shelley sounds like such a monster. I hope that you are enjoying it. :)

  7. I'm intrigued by this one. Have a great weekend!

  8. Wow, that’s a disturbing excerpt from your current read. What a scary dynamic between the sisters.

  9. Hi Freda! What ever Shelly wants! lol Yes! This sounds really interesting! I do hope you have a lovely weekend and get to read lots more :) xxx

  10. I think stories about sisters are always interesting reads.

  11. Friday 56: I've heard of Gregg Olsen but I've never owned any of his books.

    BBH: I don't believe a "book lunch" would work. People either eat during the lunches or use that time to do other things, such as paying bills, talking/texting to family, etc..

  12. Ah, so it's a true story? Hope you are finding it interesting.

  13. If You Tell sounds really interesting! The first excerpt you said is heartbreaking.

    I wasn't sure how to answer this week's question. I often read during my lunch breaks at work. I don't know how much interest a work sponsored book break would garner though.

    I hope you have a great weekend, Freda!

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…

REVIEW: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
