December Monthly News

Welcome to the December edition of the monthly news!
Celebrated my 43rd level up on the 10th!




A post shared by Freda Mans (@fredasphotos) on

Went for steak dinner with my hubby. Drank lots of presecco. Visited with loved ones. T'was a good day!
We also celebrated Christmas. Having such a big family meant many visits throughout the day, and still taking a few hours to cook and eat turkey. It was a great day though, and we are blessed.
Boxing Day, Vince and I celebrated 19 years together. Again, we went for steak and presecco. It was a great time, as always. I love The Keg.
I am quite proud of myself for accomplishing 50 books read this year!
Literally at the last minute too!

  3. A little bit late...Happy birthday and anniversaries! Seems you have a big family to celebrate with. Sounds lovely. We left the family this holidays and went to the Caribbean for Christmas and New Year, together with our son. It was wonderful and stress free.
    I read 98 books in 2019 and the best book for 2019 and all times must be Amor Towles A Gentleman in Moscow!
    Good luck with your reading for 2020 and looking forward to The Friday 56.

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.

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. 


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…
