Here is my snippet from page 56...



Book Beginnings leave your links in the comments if you didn't join in the Friday 56.





Q: Do you think that readers make better employees, as opposed to non-readers? Why or why not?
A: I think readers make better everything. Let me explain...
Readers digest books as brain food. If you do not read, you miss out on that brain food that is essential for many things. Reading enhances your vocabulary, your spelling, and frankly, common sense. 
Just my opinion, and you are welcome to disagree with it. đŸ€·

  4. Oh, I read this book last year and absolutely loved it! I was surprised, because it's not normally a book I'd read and I didn't expect to care for it. I'm so glad so many people pushed me to read it, until I finally picked it up. :3

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…
