Rating : 10/10
I read this book a loooonnnng time ago, but only just got around to reviewing it. its quite fitting as the film is due out in the cinemas soon, which I’m so excited about!
The book itself has a great warmth to it, and is really interesting to read. The characters each take on a life of their own and develop continuously throughout. The storyline which includes Jacob shows how family secrets can effect someone’s life, but also in the long run make it better and filled with excitement!
There was never a dull moment in the book, I had to slow down the reading as I loved it that much and didn’t want it to end. The idea and creation of the book was perfect, and couldn’t recommend it enough! also everyone needs to go see the film and read the book; to witness something truly magical!
happy reading 🙂
Yikes! what a few Month it has been! I got my A-level results, which were 10X better than I anticipated and I got into university!!!! since I found out I’ve been shopping, shopping and shopping.
I’m moving out which means I have to buy everything from scratch, so its given me little time to plan and write blogs, or get my Room94 blog started fully. from the 13th of September regular updates to Inspiredbyabook will be made, from movie, book and general reviews to discussion topics.
updates to Room94 will be less regular, as I am re-launching due to been unable to commit 100% to it.
I’d appreciate if my fellow followers, could go follow room94site, in preparation for re-launch, as that will have beauty, fashion and food content.
I look forward to 100% starting back up both blogs, including the Instagram page from the 12th.

Rating 3.6/5 (goodreads)
Horrorstor is based on a store similar to ikea, that has some strange happenings over night. The staff are asked to stay over night and experience the full force of the store.
I absolutely adored this book, it left me wanting a sequel! The images which got more sinister throughout helped create the story, and made it amazing.
The whole premise and creation of the novel was superbly done! The characters were charasmatic and benefited the novel greatly.
I LOVE books like this, I find a real escape reading them!
It definitely hasn’t put me off visiting IKEA at night!
I rate this novel 5 stars. And 100% recommend to all readers.
Happy reading 🙂
Synopsis: Sisters (2015)
Two sisters decide to throw one last house party before their parents sell their family home. And realise they are in deeper than they intended, putting their futures on the line and family relationships.
Running time: 118 minutes
Director: Jason Moore
Staring: Amy Poehler,John leguizamo, Maya Rudlolph and Tina Fey.
Amy poehler is my all time favourite, and in this movie both her and Tina Fey worked brilliantly! The comedy was fast paced, keeping an engaged audience.
The sisters had both hit a rocky termoil in their lives, and wanted one last pick me up. When their parents announced they were selling the family home, they took the opportunity and created a party, on line with project X.
The house in the process is trashed, and when the parents come back the sisters have to clean up and the out come is great!
I rate this film 8/10 and definitely recommend it.
Synopsis: Krampus (2015)
When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.
This film was a strange one. To start with I couldn’t make my mind up if I liked it, but after sleeping on it I thought it put a great twist on the typical christmas film.
Family drama and something to bring them together. I’d rate the film a 5 out of 10 starts. Unfortunately I don’t think you can see it at the cinema now, last night was the last screening.
Merry Christmas x
Last week I got the “unlimited ciniworld card” which means I can watch as many films as I like! This opens a great opportunity to start a new section alongside my book reviews; movie reviews.
I’m a great fan of movies, taking particular interest to horrors and thrillers. Every now and then I like to mix things up.
CHRISTMAS WITH THE COOPERS.
SYNOPSIS: When four generations of the Cooper clan come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration, a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down, leading them all toward a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday.
To start of with all the family is in separate parts of America and you get a glimpse of all their lives. The movie starts promising with some heart felt moments.
Unfortunately the story didn’t built up to I climax and was pretty predictable. For a Christmas film it would be nice as a sit down watch.
Strangely I saw a child around 5 when it wasn’t exactly appropriate, so I’d advise for adults or 13+.
I’d rate the film overall a 5 out of 10 stars, as it could have gone further than it did, and could have been more dramatic/memorable. I don’t think I’d sit and watch it again.
As some of you may know, through Christmas I will be starting a new blog “room94site”.
I’m creating it as a beauty, fashion, and promoting my website fashion business.
I’m equally passionate about beauty as I am reading books.
I’ll be including reviews of high end beauty products, drug store products and general beauty hacks, make up and nail ideas.
I hope all my followers will support me on this journey and keep upto date with my new blog when it’s up and running.
And don’t worry, I’ll NEVER forget the book posts.
Author: Gillian Flynn
I read this book a few months ago, and never got round to reviewing it! I don’t know why as I LOVED it.
How Gillian wrote Amy to be such a master mind was brilliant, the whole book just proves what women can do when they think and plan.
The clues Amy left Ben inside the hiden places was such a great trick, especially to start with as he thought she was portraying her love to him! As the story progressed we learnt that they were actually little digs at Ben, for his affair and attitude.
The first half of the book was a drag, all until part 2 I was thinking is this going anywhere. Luckily as I was about to put the book down, the pace picked up!
Quickly it escalated into something magical.
It definitely left me thinking about a womans ability to plan, plot and attack! If we all put our minds to it; were capable of anything!
I rate this book 4 stars; and if you haven’t already, Go read it!
Happy reading 🙂
Do people still use librarys
Ever since my last blog questioning if people still use librarys, personally I’ve been trying to make the most of my local Library.
I sorted through some books people have sent me, arks, presents and others and decided to give the library some. For me this was pretty difficult, because I love holding onto my books, but I needed the space. Anyway the woman at the library looked at me like she’d never been given books before. It just warmed my heart!
I can’t encourage any of you enough, to sort through old books, DVDs and CDs. Take them to your library and give to someone else!
Happy giving 🙂

Genre: Erotic romance
First things first… Grey actually has feelings, Which are shown continuously throughout the book. It was obviously very similar to Fifty Shades of Grey, seen as it’s the same book from a different point of view!
The 4th installment answered alot of questions, everyone was dying know! Such as Christian really works! This installment offers readers to get truly invested into the characters lives and understand them more.
Lucky E.L.James’ writing has developed over the past few years, as her development is clear throughout the book. Her writing style has certainly improved.
I’d rate this book 4 stars, as it’s well written and offers greater insight into Christians life, which all us nosey people love! I definitely recommend Grey!
Happy reading 🙂
