  7. Oh I forgot. I listen to podcasts on my phone in the kitchen while doing dishes and cooking. I only have a couple I follow regularly, but there are tons of them.

  8. Great cover and good Friday 56 teaser! The opening is certainly vivid, but I don't think septic tanks catch on fire. ????? It certainly sounds like something one would want to avoid, but I've never heard of it happening.

    Thanks for hosting and enjoy your weekend!

  9. Happy Friday! I would suggest giving "Writing Excuses" a try. This fast, fun, and SHORT podcast is hosted by a couple bestselling authors. It will give you excellent insight into plot, development, characters, etc... I've come to appreciate books in a whole different way after listening to this.

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…

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…
