Friday Five

1. Didn't blog last week as the plague hit our house big time.


It seems everyone I know has been affected including my stepdad Elwood who is in the hospital and also my mother.

Sent positive, healthy vibes their way!

2. Since I've been ill with this annoying cough, I've been reading lots.

I'm a huge fan of the Tudors and this book gives readers a glimpse of the volatile court during Queen Katherine's reign.

My YA Books Central review: http://www.yabookscentral.com/yafiction/20771-maid-of-the-king-s-court

Teaser: Vivid glimpse into the volatile Tudor court where men held the power over everything, including the destiny of women. Readers see the courage of Elizabeth and how she takes destiny into her own hands

3. 

This book shows what happens when someone files sexual harassment charges in a college setting.  One of the problems I had with this novel was even through this was in fact Jenny's story of being raped, she felt disconnected and distant.  Instead readers see what happens through the POVs of her room-mate and a guy who comes across as a stalker and not very likable.

4. 

What would happen if the great-great-great grandkids of Sherlock Holmes and Watson meet up at the same boarding school in London?  Add to this them being framed for the murder of a classmate with clues from their ancestor's stories. A sure hit for fans of mysteries and Holmes stories.

5. 

In a future where disease, war, crime have been erased there is the need of scythe's, modern-day grim reapers.  When two teens are apprenticed against their will, they find a whole different world and intrigue where not everything is what it seems.  Totally enjoying!

**Guilty pleasure:



Hope to feel well enough to go see LaLa Land with Emma Stone.

Also plan on watching more of OUTLANDER season 2 which is set in Paris!
