Q: What was the last book you started to read but couldn't finish?
A: Bram Stoker's, Dracula. I'm about 200 pages in... I just couldn't take it anymore though. It's not for me at all. I liked the movie, but not the book.

  1. Happy Birthday Freda! I hope you have a terrific celebration!

  2. Happy Birthday Freda! It was my birthday on Wednesday. Hope you are having a great day and get spoiled!

    The one and only Ivan has been on my TBR list until I saw the movie. The movie was gorgeous and I enjoyed it so much. But now I don't want to read the book anymore... It happens!

    Have a good weekend!

    Weekend Book Friends

  3. Happy birthday, Freda!
    I've heard wonderful things about The One and Only Ivan but have never read it, Hope you are enjoying it!

  4. Oh, I loved this book! It was so cute. I haven't watched the movie yet, but I've heard that was good, too. I hope you enjoy it! If you do, you should read The One and Only Bob. I haven't read that one yet, either (I'm such a slacker!), but I've been told several times that it's also good!

  5. Wishing you a fantastic birthday!

  6. Sounds good. Have a great weekend!

  7. This is a book that was extremely popular in my school library and in the school library world. I didn't read it because I don't like sad books or books with animals as main characters. I hope you enjoyed it.

  8. I like the look of this. My Friday post is here -

  9. Happy Birthday Freda!! Have a great weekend!

  10. Happy birthday, Freda! Hope you do something fun to mark the occasion!

  11. My daughter and I read the Applegate book a month or so ago and enjoyed it. The movie is good too. I hope you are enjoying it!

    I am sorry Dracula didn't work for you. I'm the opposite as you--I loved the book and can't stand any of the movie versions. LOL

    I hope you have a great birthday and enjoy the weekend!

  12. Thought about reading this. DIdn't know there was a movie. Cheers. have a great weekend.

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
