Book Beginnings leave your links in the comments if you didn't join in the Friday 56.

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

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON 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.  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

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
