Here is my snippet from location 16...





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





Q: What is your go-to recommendation for someone who doesn’t read often?
A: That's a tough one since every one is into different subjects and such. I suppose it depends on the person. Magazines are a good place to start if books seem too intimidating.
AND NOW FOR THAT GIVEAWAY I WAS TALKING ABOUT...

I can't really afford a book or anything but I have stocked up some PayPal cash.
I'm gonna offer up $10 to one of you lucky participants.
Enter this week.

Simple.
Open to everyone that can accept PayPal in Canada or US.

  7. Chatine must be extremely agile and strong for a challenge like that. I know I couldn't do it. Haha. The Thief sounds like it will be a good one. I hope you are enjoying it.

    That's a good suggestion for reluctant readers! I hadn't thought of magazines, but it is a good starting point. Or maybe graphic novels...

    Have a great weekend, Freda!

  13. Congratulation of 9 years of #Friday56
    Yeah, like you said, I'd need to know what sort of genres the person enjoys first too before I would recommend anything.
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, Freda.

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.

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…
