Here is my 56...

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

Q:  Do you share books? If so, do you have a system to keep track of whom you lend books to?
A: I do share books. Well, the ones that I am not keeping. I very rarely keep books now, but always pass them along to a friend or family member. Whomever I think suits the book since I read so many genres. I don't lend them. I ask them to always pass along to others. Share the reading!!

  1. I LOVE the Hannah Swensen series...I watch the shows on Hallmark. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Twenty-seven novels in the series?! That's amazing. You don't know how hungry that cover makes me, although the murder part doesn't sound so good.

    I donate books rather than share, too. The only exception has been "Where the Crawdads Sing", which has been passed between all the female members of my immediate family.

  3. What a fun cozy mystery! Great beginning and Friday 56.

  4. Love cozy mysteries. One with animals is fun!

  5. I enjoyed this one. It's one of my favorite series and I need to catch up with it. Have a great weekend!

  6. I like the title ... looking forward to seeing the recipes! Happy weekend!

  7. I love handing on books as well, giving them to others to enjoy and continuing the cycle that way! If I ever find myself with a book I don't want to add to my own shelves, that's what I do as well :) Also, Moishe sounds like a lovely cat, fingers crossed he is not involved in any of the murders! Thanks for hosting and have a lovely weekend :)

  8. Ah this books looks really interesting and I've been wanting to read a cozy mystery book! 🥺

    I love how you pass the books instead of just sharing books! 🥺 I wish I could say I share books with others but unfortunately, none of my friends read, and plus I read ebooks mostly so I can't really share those with them 🤔

  9. You've picked a nice series, Freda. Happy reading and happy weekend!

  10. This sounds like a super cute read! The title's making me hungry, too. xD Hope you enjoy it!

  11. Hmmm--I think I read this when it first came out. I'll have to check it out to make sure.

    Happy reading!

  12. Your book cover reminds me that I was wanting to make cookies. Ha! Thanks for adding me to the linky.

  13. My mom loves Joanne Fluke's books. I haven't actually read any of hers though. Perhaps someday.

    I don't often loan out books, but I do like to give them away to others from time to time as well. I hope you have a great week!

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is.

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

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
