Click here to see my list of the top ten best movies I watch this year

 I going to do something different for this year. Instead of a top ten list I will be listing my favorite books I read this year. To be frank I read so many great books this year I can't narrow it down to ten. There will be three categories: graphic novels, middle grade, and fiction. I place teen and adult together because 1. I don't read a lot of teen (YA) books and 2. many adult books can have a teen appeal to them. Doesn't mean they are all fluff up they just have mature subject matter that most teens should be able to handle. 

Top 10 best movies of 2020



Unlike last year I have narrow down the best movies I watch this year to ten. This is not a rank list, their just movies I watch for the first time this that have become my favorite.

Three more things, 1) I made a septate list for the animated movie just make it clear that not all these movies are live action 2) I not going to included any documentaries I had watch, and 3) I am not bothering putting up pictures of each movies. There just way too many.

Cir Du Freak books 10,11,12 Plus review of whole series.

 Review book 10 The Lake of Souls:



Review:  This series is quite odd to begin with and now it gets stranger. First, I have to say that this book keeps it real with Darren grieving for Mr. Crepsley.

The world Darren and Harkat travel to this over worldly places. They do find out what the place is at the end and all I’m going to say about it is that it interesting.

A lot of question that have been building up in the previous book have finally been answer. However, lead to more questions.

Books 7,8, and 9 takes a subplot line and stretch it in to three books throws the story off a bit. Book ten makes up for that.
