Happy weekend to you all!

Here is my 56...

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

Q:   Do you use GoodReads to track your books?
A: I do and have been using it for many years, so many that I don't remember how long exactly. I also use other sources, but this is one of my favorites for sure!

  1. The book looks so good and I really like the classic cover. Have a great weekend!

  2. I never have read these books. My daughter and I started the first book, but it got set aside for some reason and we never got back to it. Someday perhaps...

    I use Goodreads to track the books I have read, but use LibraryThing to track the books I own, both read and unread.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Such a classic! Enjoy and have a lovely weekend!

  4. I am a big fan of Goodreads too! In fact now that I know you use it I will search for you to friend!

  5. I finally got the Book Beginnings on Fridays post up! Cheers!

  6. I love the cover! I really must read the Anne of Green Gables books - I've been meaning to for years.

  7. The Secret of Seaside Agatha Ball "What can I do you for today?"

  8. Hi Freda - I don't know what happened yesterday to my Friday post - eventually I found it in the trash! Thanks for letting me know it had disappeared from my blog!!!

  9. I didn't know there were other resources out there besides Goodreads! It's the only site I've heard of!

  10. Great quotes. I never got around to read these books, although they have been translated into Swedish. Maybe I should try now?

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

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
