Here is my 56...

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

Q:  Who is your favorite character... of all the books you've read? Why?
A:  These are pretty loaded questions sometimes, y'know like asking what a persons' favorite song, food, color, etc is...ONE thing? UGH! K, tantrum over and I'll just go with Cinder from the Lunar Chronicles. Why? Because she was the first character that turned me onto loving that series. I just wish someone would visually adapt in as a movie or tv series already. HEAR ME HOLLYWEIRD??!!

  1. If I had to pick a favorite character it would likely be either Elizabeth Bennet or Elinor Dashwood, or Anne Eliott all Jane Austen characters

  2. I meant to put Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews as my link name, but I clicked submit too soon. Sorry about that.

    I don't usually read memoirs but the excerpts to this one sound good. Have a great weekend!

    1. No worries at all about the name thing. Have a great weekend!

  3. Looks interesting - and very short. Happy reading!

  4. I also threw a bit of a tantrum on the Hop question and then kinda cheated my way out of answering it xD It is a great question but impossible to answer! And I've heard great things about Jessica Simpson's memoir, but these quotes really get me intrigued! Thanks for hosting and have a lovely weekend!

  5. I used to love essays and short stories, but somewhere I stopped reading them. I need to get back into reading a few.

    I just went with Poirot for the Blogger hop question! I've never read an Agatha Christie featuring Poirot that I didn't enjoy.

    Have a good weekend Freda!

  6. I hope you enjoy the book--she's always been a charismatic figure to me.

  7. Sounds like an interesting memoir. I hope you enjoy it.

  8. The Jessica Simpson book looks really interesting. I have always loved her singing voice. I really feel for celebrities and way nothing is private. I can't imagine what it would do to them psychologically to always have their business, including their weight out there, especially as a teen. It's hard enough not having a spotlight on you.

    I love that opening and her attitude.

    I didn't even try to answer this week's BBHOP question. I couldn't think of a coherent answer and I ran out of time. LOL Cinder's a good choice. :-)

    I hope you have a great weekend, Freda! Thank you for hosting!

  9. I would love to see the Lunar Chronicles as a series. I think it would work best as an animated series for some reason.

  10. I've still yet to read her book but I own it and want to do it soon!

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
