Read my review.

Q:  Do you finish reading every book that you have slotted for a review? 
A: Yes. Most definitely. To be fair, I finish every book, review book or not. I just might have missed out on a decent story had I given up. Then there have been a few misses, but that's ok. I read more for the story and experience, rather than a like or dislike.

  1. Those are excellent snippets! I would expect no less from her -- she is so good!

  2. I have this one on my Kindle. It looks good. I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Oh golly. My computer decides, randomly, to not allow me to make comments. Then just as randomly, it changes it's mind. Now I have completely forgotten what I was going to say about your book other than I like the author! You didn't even know I was stuck in the "no comment" zone. Ha!

  4. It's nice to see I'm not the only one who finishes everything they read since it might turn out to be worth it. And, if I don't like it, I don't read the author again. But there have been a few times where I wound up really enjoying a book I thought I wasn't going to enjoy based on how it started.

  5. I have this short story but haven't read it yet. I love Margaret Atwood's books.

  6. Great quotes both of them. I did read the book some years ago. I was not entirely overwhelmed by it, as most people seem to be. I have not seen the tv-series. However, Atwood is a very skilled author and that makes for joyful reading.

    1. This little gem is nothing like The Handmaid's Tale.

  7. Hi there Freda! Believe it or not, but I have never read a book by Margaret Atwood. I've started with The Handmaid's Tale and couldn't into at all. Maybe I should try this one.

    I have actually put one or two review books down, but I also try to at least finish the books as far as I can.

    Have a good weekend!

  8. I've never read any Margaret Atwood, and I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that! These snippets are really intriguing though!

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
