Q:  What book/books got a lot of hype but were a disappointment for you?
A: Right away I can think of two, The Raven Boys and Station Eleven. Sorry, not sorry. Especially for Emily Mandel's book. I had read The Singer's Gun years ago and loved it. Station Eleven just didn't compare for me after reading that. So nope. The Raven Boys, every one of the blogs I follow loved it, and just sitting here writing about it my face get twisted up. I'm still like whatever. đŸ€·

  4. I loved the Raven Boys and Station Eleven (but that was my first book by the author)--I'll need to check out The Singer's Gun!

  5. That prologue opening has my thoughts going in all sorts of directions. Not a good situation to be in. And your Friday 56 is quite intense! I am glad to see you enjoyed Willow Rose.

    I haven't read either Station Eleven or Raven Boys, although I do want to. I enjoyed a couple of Mandel's earlier books and remember when Station Eleven came out--how excited everyone was. It's one of those books I worry won't live up to the hype. I can see it didn't for you. We can't all like the same books, right?

    Have a great weekend, Freda. Stay safe and well.

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.

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. 


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…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
