  1. I loved Tom Sawyer! It was actually the first book I checked out of the library when I was eight years old.

  2. That's excellent news about your mother! I'm glad.

    I can't remember if I've ever read Tom Sawyer. Hmmm....

  3. This is one of those classics that you feel like you know even though you've never read it. I hope you enjoy your weekend!

  4. I haven't read this book. I like the quotes.

  5. Such wonderful news about your mother! And I love your choice for this week's book. I adored that book!

  6. Great news about your mom! I enjoyed Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn too!

  7. Glad to hear your mother is doing better! I hope she has a fairly quick recovery.

    I've read this one! I didn't love it as much as I think some people do, but I definitely thought it was a fun read. :) These snippets just bring back so many memories. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you!
      I didn't love this one either, but I do love Huck Finn!

  8. Wonderful news about your mother! God bless.
    Tom Sawyer. What a classic! I'd love for everyone to check out mine at

  9. I'm so happy to hear that your mother is doing well! Have a great weekend!

  10. It's been ages since I read this book. I hope you're enjoying it.

  11. I'm actually planning to read it this year or next year as I have finally started reading classics.

  12. I am so glad your mother is doing great, Freda. I hope she has a smooth recovery! It's been so long since I read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I actually preferred Huckleberry Finn of the two. :-)

    I don't read a lot of horror, but I certainly enjoy books with horror elements in them now and then--from thrillers to urban or dark fantasy.

    Have a great weekend!

  13. Same here!! <3 <3 Gotta love horror!

  14. Wow! There's a lot going on here. I just joined Instagram and haven't a clue how it works. Guess I'll learn what it's all about. So glad for the good news about your mother.

  15. So glad your mom is doing well! I haven't read Tom Sawyer in so long!

  16. Glad your mother is doing well. Enjoy your classic read!

  17. Oooh, I'm definitely not a horror fan! I get too twitchy and anxious while reading, lol.

    I'm glad that your mum is doing well! I hope the rest of her recovery is as smooth.

  18. I read fantasies and mysteries/thrillers. I don't like horror :( but I did have my horror phase when I was a teenager... I'm quite picky about what I read.

    Have a nice weekend!

  19. glad to hear your mother is on the mend. i read tom sawyer waaaaay back. glad you are enjoying it

  20. Good news about your Mum, Freda. x
    This week's BBH question was an easy one for me to answer. Considering my blog is packed with reviews for paranormal romance and urban fantasy books, I don’t think it’ll come as a surprise that my 💜 favourite 💜 reading genre is adult PARANORMAL ROMANCE! 😘 I did, however, read lots of horror in my teens and adolescent years.
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, Freda.
    Here's my BBH Post

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…
