Q: What is your favorite social media and why?
A: I have to go with Facebook. I know so many that hate it, but it keeps me connected to the people who matter most. I do have a lot of acquaintances, work relations, and others too but mainly it's a way to stay in contact with my loved ones, FAMILY.

  3. The excerpts you shared from The Man Who Was Thursday are sure intriguing. I haven't read that particular classic thriller, although I have heard good things about it. I hope you are enjoying it!

    My favorite form of social media would be blogs. Particularly book blogs. :-) I know what you mean about Facebook though being a connection to family. It certainly is for me to some degree.

    I hope you have a great weekend. Stay safe and well, Freda.

  4. I haven't read anything by this author yet, who has been on my must-read list for years now.

  5. I actually use social media very infrequently. I’m not a fan of Twitter and tend to avoid Facebook (it seems to be an open market for complaining, hating, and general nastiness). If I had to pick one I guess it would be Instagram. I almost never post anything but I do occasionally scroll through. :)

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 Game of Thrones Season 8 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE NOW! RATED PG 425 minutes AMAZON 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 favor
