Here is my 56...

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

Q:  Do you have a monthly/yearly budget for books? Or are you a "what's a book budget?" kind of reader?
A:  I am definitely the latter. I don't buy a lot of books since I get so many for free for review. No point in budgeting random, seldom, shoppings of a prized possessions.

  1. Looks and sounds like a great summer novel. Enjoy!

  2. I really like the quotes for this one, especially the 56. I really got a good picture of what the garden looked like. Have a great weekend!

  3. The cover of the book is lovely. I wanted to dive right in.
    I don't budget, either. I do, however, buy used if there's something I really want to have a copy.

  4. All Right Here looks really good and I love the cover. Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. That cover is like the exact image of an outdoor party I want to one day have! This also sounds like a nice read, I loved that description of a riotous garden in summer! Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  6. I don't agree with Ivy in the opening chapter - I prefer to give gifts that I think the person would like, but that's just me. The book looks very interesting and going off your extracts well written.

  7. Love the quote, I feel the character is kinda sassy and I love that.

  8. Hi Freda! I didn't get time to do a regular Friday Post, so I just slammed one together quickly this morning. So no Friday 56 (I'm reading an Afrikaans book, so you guys would be lost in any case!).

    Ha - the advantages of getting so many ARC's. But I am so far behind on reading books that I actually own, that I don't even request any ARC's at this stage. And I bought a whole stack of new books only last week.... Hey, at least it's not drugs. I could have been drugs.

    Hope you are well and enjoying and a good weekend!

  9. I confess that I don't have a book budget but I honestly mostly get my books from the library, which is free. Sorry I am so late to respond. Fridays I watch my grandson and now that he is mobile I don't have much chance to do anything other than keep an eagle eye on him all day. Exhausting.

  10. She and I have different philosophies about gift giving. LOL Sounds like a good book. I hope you have a great week!

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
