My favourite. . . Movie of 2017



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it... The world can be a dark place and it’s to share something positive.
2017 was the year for Netflix. I don't recall going to an actual movie theatre last year. How sad. The last film I saw in the theatre was Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them and it was terrific.

On Netflix, I watched Breaking Bad, The Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, 100 but I'd have to say The Vampire Diaries is my favourite because it is the longest running with 8 seasons. Season 8 was released in 2017.

The Walking Dead is still going, with the War against Negan, and I hope it never ends because I'm in love with it also.  The Walking Dead Season 8 Part 2 will be released on Sunday 25th February 2018! 4 days guys!
  
The spin-off of TVD, The Originals, is another exciting show that I love and love to binge watch. It is a close second with season 5 (Final) set to be released in April of 2018. 

The actual movies I watched that I can remember are Guardians of the Galaxy vol II, Season 7 of Game of Thrones, Star Wars The Last Jedi, Wonder Woman, but they weren't my favourite. Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson, when you've seen it once, you've seen them all IMO. I mean Beauty and the Beast is a timeless story, and the Disney animation cannot be beaten.

This week we are talking about

My Favorite... Website To Shop For Books.

When I want a book that I can't get in Chapters or WalMart, I can usually find it on Amazon. The time it takes to arrive is quicker than The Book Depository but the shipping costs more. I have also purchased books from Barnes and Noble. Other than that, I like using Freebooksy for kindle books :) & Audible for audiobooks

Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Read

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Books I Can’t Believe I Read


1. 11/22/63 by Stephen King. I hate politics! I don't care about the president of the United States but I was determined to read a Stephen King Novel and I saw this book in the second-hand store for cheap so I thought why not.
2. Opus Dei. An Investigation into the Powerful, Secretive Society within the Catholic Church by Michael Walsh
3. A Course In Miracles Combined Volume: Text, Workbook for Students, Manual for Teachers, 2nd Edition. I feel this book really helped me with an emotional problem and I'm thankful for it.
4. The Giver. I used to clean classrooms and one class was reading The Giver by Lois Lowry. I was curious to see what it was about so I read it.
5. Blessed Sister M. Faustina Kowalska Diary Divine Mercy In My Soul. This is a very heavy spiritual book.
6. The Lamb's Supper The Mass As Heaven On Earth by Scott Hahn. This book helped me to understand what happens during Mass. It is something extraordinary.
7. The Gargoyle Code by Dwight Longenecker is like The Screwtape Letters
8. Fat Dad, Fat Kid One Father and Son's Journey to take power away from the "F-word" Shay Butler Gavin Butler.
9. The Synagogue of Satan by Andrew Carrington Hitchcock. The secret history of Jewish World Domination
10. The Visions of The Children by Janice T. Connell

My Favorite.... Biography


My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it... The world can be a dark place and it’s to share something positive.

My favourite. . . Biography is I Am Ozzy.


My Review

I love reading Biographies of famous people and it was a pleasure to read this one because I have always been a big fan of Black Sabbath and fascinated with Ozzy Osbourne. He's an interesting guy. Granted his younger years was fraught with booze parties and drugs and that is how he became so dependent on them. Wasn't everyone in the sixties and seventies? I Am Ozzy is very funny as well. He takes us along on his journey of how he starts off and later becomes the singer of Black Sabbath. By the time Black Sabbath splits and Ozzy becomes a sensation, I wasn't at all interested in him as a solo artist. Together with his wife and manager Sharon Osbourne, he is a sort of legend and I enjoyed very much watching The Osbournes reality TV series. A few of his close friends died tragically but that didn't deter his alcohol addiction, in fact, it probably made it worse. He once pissed on the Alamo but never realized it and gets in trouble.

 

In 2010 Jack Osbourne produced a documentary about Ozzy‘s life titled “Wreckage Of My Past (The Story Of Ozzy Osbourne)“.

Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About


I really liked The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne and it hasn't been that long since I binge-read the series. 2013? For those who aren't aware, you can find out more about them on his website.  Atticus and his talking dog Oberon are a cute pair. There are at least 9 novels written so far and I can't remember much about each of 'em by just looking at the title
πŸ˜­πŸ˜ΏπŸ‘…
I need to re-read them maybe? What I know is
⇢there was a coven of witches in Hexed,
⇢a vampire in Hounded,

⇢what comes next is Hammered ⇤(I think Atticus was in another universe or in hell? I can't remember)

Hunted was about Atticus being chased by the goddess of the hunt Diana and Artemis I think.

⇢I DNF'd Staked  I lost interest.









Hunted by Karen Robards. I can't tell you what this is about. I have no idea but it was good apparently

Born Blue by Han Nolan. I vaguely remember this one but liked it.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I started reading this book a long time ago and never finished but I don't remember much of anything. I still plan on reading it someday, just not yet :)














The Morganville Vampires, Volume 2 by Rachel Caine










Hot Mama (Bigtime #2) by Jennifer Estep
