It’s the reason I’ve been shady on the reviews because I’ve spent too much time thinking I’ve failed!
Turns out, after 9 exams my main results were ABBBBCC! SOO HAPPY!
I’ve finally finished the first vampire diaries book! Which unfortunately took me ages, especially with exams. However, it got me thinking… Apart from social change and context, could you tell what year a book was written? Whether it be from the 1800’s to the 1900’s or even 2016?
I noticed as I was reading The vampire diaries it was written in 1991, 6 years before I was born! Previous to this knowledge I had done little research so thought it was written fairly recent at around 2006 onwards.
Because of my thoughts, I wondered can you tell? Especially because to me, the writing style and language is fluent and modern. Or could it just be that language is slow moving.
What are your thoughts on this? Please comment!
*review up soon*
Like last year, I’ve abandoned my blogs for exams, my Alevels. In September I’ll be going to Chester university to study LLB law (if i pass).
I’ve got LOADS of ideas for blogs, but wayyy too much catching up to do on reading, as the last 6 months has been spent on reading text books. I’ve deeply missed reading so hope to get back into it very soon!
Movie reviews will also continue so you know what to watch!
My beauty blog will also be up and running with great reviews and hauls! Much much more too.
It’s great to be back!
Yet again another knock out book by Ivy Smoak! Another late night getting through the book, because I can never seem to put them down!
All seems well once again for Penny and Hunter, but like always something throws a spanner into the works! It was great to see how Penny and Hunters relationship has developed since the first books (which I loved also).
With them finally happy and settled, something was bound to happen, and boy it did! For the first time I didn’t see it coming. I don’t want to spoil but wow. How can anyone not read these books!
Only down fall, is there wasn’t enough book to fill my needs; and that cliff hanger made me want to rip my eyes out!
All in all 5/5 stars once again. Cannot wait for the next book Devotion!
GRAB YOUR COPY HERE Eruption
So, many of you will be familiar with the book ‘Night film’ by Marisha Pessl. Today I was roaming around poundworld looking for some car freshners, and ‘Night film’ was only there on the shelf!
FOR £1!!!! I must have paid £4+ when it was released.
I have never been as shocked in my life, and I wonder what other gems I’ve missed!
Have any of you had experiences like this? Please let me know in the comments.
Running time: 1hr 45mins
Synopsis: A teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author R. L. Stine after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the town of Madison, Delaware.
I was looking forward to seeing this film for weeks! I went to watch the unlimited screening yesterday, and it was in 3D. Unfortunately for the film, the 3D wasn’t working at the start of the film; which hurt my eyes haha.
The start of the film was quite slow, and didn’t kick in until around half way through. It was great seeing all the original goosebumps monsters; bringing back childhood memories.
The storyline wasn’t predictable, and I was quite impressed with the imagination put into it.
Id recommend for adults and children, as it’s suitable for both. I’d also give it 8/10 stars.
Synopsis: Room (2015) tells the extraordinary story of Jack, a spirited 5-year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted mother. Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe. Their life, however, is anything but typical–they are trapped–confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space that Ma named Room. Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life. But as Jack’s curiosity about their situation grows, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.
Running time: 118 minutes
Director: Lenny Abrahamson
Room isn’t like any film I’ve seen before. It’s not a horror or thriller, but something special. The genre is hard to Identify, Because it tells a magical, heartfelt story.
The film shows how a strong young woman has brought up her son, in a 10X10 box room after being captivated at 17 by ‘old nick’. Her son Jack doesn’t know any other world (litrally). She makes the brave decision to hatch a plan for them to escape.
(Kind of spoiler)
In many emotional scenes, which did make me and my friends cry. You see Jack escape and his mum to follow, for Jack it’s hard because he thought and saw room as his home. But eventually he comes to love the world.
I recommend this 100%. It’s a beautiful film and really gives you something to think about. 10/10 stars!
