Q:  Have you ever done the Classics Club Challenge? If not, would you want to?
A:  I have not, nor would I like to. I prefer modern reading, to be fair. I wouldn't enjoy this type of genre for a challenge.

  1. That looks like a great memoir--she's so charismatic and enigmatic!

  2. This looks to be a good one. I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Oooh 'Face It' sounds amazing! I'm in awe of Debbie Harry so I'd definitely be down to read this! I personally love the Classics Challenge but that's because the genre (or maybe more the category?) does work for me. No need to suffer through books if you're not going to enjoy them :) Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  4. I have a copy of this book - just haven't read it yet! I must do so.

  5. I have to be honest and admit that I have no idea who Debbie Harry is....

    I do have an active Classics Club challenge. Love reading the Classics and modern lit. There are some great books listed as Classics that aren't that old too.

    Have a good weekend Freda!

    Elza Reads

    1. I'm gonna pretend I didn't read that... LOL... Go to Youtube and listen to Blondie, Heart of Glass. Great song, you may find you have heard it after all. They were a HUGE band once, known all over the world.

  6. The cover of Face It is terrific!

    I'm doing the Classics Club Challenge now. I'm working my way through my first list of 50. I like it. But I find myself reading more classic books that aren't on the list I created. I need to focus on the list so I can finish it by my target date of the end of 2023.

  7. Face It looks really good! I bet there are some great stories in it!

  8. Hi there! You know I keep joining in and forgetting to add my link and go to visit everyone! So I remembered today although late! Thought I'd pop by anyway! lol _Glad I did! I am a huge Blondie fan, and her lookalike is currently touring the UK as we speak! I must get this! Here is my Friday56, although very late, just in case you're still playing!

    1. I wish my reader was better. It should have shown me your post to visit. Darn you, Bloglovin!! :-)
      Off to visit now!

    2. Sorry I sneezed. I once read The Perfect Storm and was horrified by how scary it would be to be out on a boat in a storm. A cold one at that. My Friday quotes and review

  9. I am currently updating my Goodreads account to add links to my reviews kind of as a cross-reference for myself. I don't participate in book tours and I can usually hold the few deadlines for challenges in my head.

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
