JUNO
Juno was hungry. But before she could eat, she had to 
make it to the fridge without cutting herself.


Q: Would you consider giving out books to trick-or-treaters instead of candy?
A: I would, but some make throw them back at me. 
Kids want candy. They live for this one day a year that they get candy, no questions asked.

  1. Books for trick of treaters! Yeah, that would be a great way to get your house TPed!

    Your book sounds really exciting! Where is it set?

  2. That first sentence is definitely intriguing. I want to know what is going on.
    The book blurb is a bit confusing though. The "adrenaline of secrecy"? From keeping her affair secret, I guess.

    In a perfect world, kids would want books for Halloween, but I think your answer is the realistic one.

    1. There is secrets, but an affair is not one of them.

  3. The excerpts are intriguing. It seems like the character has a lot to be angry about.

  9. Tarryn Fisher has been on to read author since 2014! I need to pick a book by her soon! Also, I wouldn't want to not give out candies on that one day either!

  12. One of my neighbors attempted a book giveaway at Halloween. I didn't follow up to see how it sent, though. I think she didn't have enough books so that is why she was appealing to neighbors to donate.

  13. That sounds like an interesting read and I think I've just stumbled upon a nice book blog hop / linky party.

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
