Q:  If you can recommend a book from the following genres, what would they be? A book from Romance, NA, YA, Fantasy.
A: From Romance, The Notebook or anything by Nicholas Sparks really. NA, not sure... next. YA I definitely recommend Morgan Matson, Marissa Meyer, and Julie Kagawa. Fantasy I just can't get a grip on one that I feel strong about. There's a bunch of good ones but maybe I haven't read them yet, I dunno. Ask me about thriller/horror/mystery and we can talk all night...

  1. I don't usually read memoirs, but this really sounds good. Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I haven't heard of this one before. Enjoy your current read. :-)

  3. Your book is true crime? That sure doesn't sound like the Amish I've heard about. Is it well-written?

    1. It is non-fiction. Also shows you can;t judge a book by its cover. Amish are only human and make mistakes too, even big, bad ones.

  4. I don't think I could read this book right now!

  5. Aw man, this sounds like a really emotional read. I've heard of similar books about the Amish experience, but hadn't heard of this one. I'm super curious about it now.

  6. Oh my. Sounds like a truly heartbreaking story :( Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

  7. I'm intrigued by your book--that selection is disturbing but compelling!

  8. Is this non-fiction? It's so chilling to be true!!!

    1. It is!! So chilling, I turned to ice reading it!

  9. Oh wow, that sounds really good. Will mark it here! I am sooo late for Friday 56. We were travelling the whole day yesterday and then we didn't have signal.

    Will do the Instagram post as well!

    Enjoy your weekend Freda!

  10. Very interesting sounding books you've got. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I had a lot of paranormal romance and urban fantasy recommendations Freda, but YA and NA? Not so much. ;-)
    Hope you have a good weekend. x

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…

#Win Hobbs & Shaw (US/CDN)

Available now!
Rated PG
137 minutes
Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham return to their unforgettable roles as Hobbs and Shaw in this action-packed feature from the blockbuster Fast & Furious franchise! For years, hulking lawman Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and lawless outcast Deckard Shaw (Statham) have traded smack talk and body blows. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever, Hobbs and Shaw must partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves!

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'.
