Q:  How do you keep track of books you will be reviewing or reading?
A: I have a daily planner for blogging. When I decided to switch to my own domain and get paid for opportunities, it became a business and I need one. It helps me keep track of all of my obligations, personal and professional.

  1. Looks like a fun one for the youngsters in my life! Thanks for hosting!

  2. I haven't heard of this book before. I like the quotes.

  3. I'll have to put this one on my list. Thanks for the share!

    Happy Friday!

  4. Sounds like you've got quite an adventure book!

  5. Cute cover! Looks like a good one. Enjoy! Happy Weekend!

  6. I keep track of what I am reading on Goodreads, to which I have added a tag for 'reviewed'. After I review a book I go back in and edit my book with that tag. That way I can scroll through a list of the books I've read and see quickly those I still need to review. I also have my TBR on Goodreads, too, and can move books from 'Want to read' to 'Currently reading' where I can record my progress. I'm pretty addicted to the whole process.

  7. I think being organised and keeping track of reads and reviews is only sensible. I use Goodreads and an online calendar to keep me on top of things. ;-)
    I hope you have a great weekend, Freda.

  8. Seems like an action-packed read! :)

  9. I use a planner for organising my blog too and noting release dates etc. I wouldn't say I use it to plan my reading but it keeps me on track knowing when ARCs release etc. :)

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…
