Here is my 56...



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








Q:   Do you read books by authors from outside your country? Any book recommendations? Also, if non-US/UK, could you name one author/book from your country?   
A: I love reading books from outside North America. One of my favorite authors is from Denmark, Willow Rose. Since I am from Canada and not US or US, I'll tell you my favorite Canadian author is Chevy Stevens.

  4. Hi Freda! How are you? I haven't done a Friday Post in a couple of weeks. But I'm back today and yea!!

    For some or other reason, I just can't get into the J.D Robb series at all. I've read a few Nora Roberts and although she's not my favorite, I read it from time to time. Oh well, different tastes are what makes the world spicy!

    Happy weekend! Weekend Book Friends

  7. I read the first couple of books in the JD Robb series years ago. They were really good. There are too many for me to catch up with now.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  11. I am listening to this series in audio book format, but haven't gotten too far. Since this pandemic, I haven't been able to listen to a book at all. :-( My favorite time was when I was cleaning, but now there's always people around (okay, so it's my family) and they keep interrupting me.

    I enjoy reading books set in and by authors from other countries too.

    I hope you have a great week, Freda! Thank you for hosting!

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
