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 hasĀ 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 šŸ™‚

 

 

University update!

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, couldĀ 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.

happy reading.

 

 

The vampire diaries – ageless reading?Ā 

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* 

SHOCK OF THE DAY!

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 Ā£1!!!! I must have paid Ā£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.

Room: Review

Synopsis: RoomĀ (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
Genre: Drama
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!

Krampus movie: Review

image

Synopsis: KrampusĀ (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

(NEW) Christmas with the coopers: MOVIE review.

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.

Happy movies.

Why I started blogging! It gets personal!

Why I started blogging?

The first time I ever spoke about blogging was over a year ago now; I was joking about starting a reading blog, after talking about it in my English lesson.
Something about it in my mind didn’t seem like a joke.

That night I created a new email bookreviewss@hotmail.com and created “review_that_book” on instagram. Instagram was where it all started, taking pictures and reviewing them. My ratings grew faster than expected, up to 1,600 in the first few months.

From using Instagram and the name “review_that_book,  I felt like it restricted me just to reviews; so I made a decision to change the name to “inspiredbyabook” (all together not sperate).

What Happened Next? 

My uncle designs websites so I asked him what I should do because I wanted to move to my own website. Unfortunately it was too expensive so he introduced me to WordPress which was the best thing he’s ever done! He advised to create a twitter account to expand my branches. (Shh I’ve kind of forgot about my twitter account).

After that my blog grew quicker than expected; contacting authors and reviewing/ reading books ever since.

What inspires me about reading?

I find reading such a special experience. How can words open your mind so widely to allow new abilities and opportunities?. Every time I read it takes me to another world, away from all the troubles of today. Like any reader I know I get too invested into the stories, but who doesn’t?. Reading A Book just makes me feel like I’ve had a personality Change, that I’m capable of more things.

I also believe you can learn new things And help with certain situations. It’s truely beautiful.

Why is my blog called “inspiredbyabook “? 

I chose to call it inspired because it truely does inspire me. If I’ve read a book and it inspires an idea I can write about it, without just been limited to reviews. I love reviewing books giving my opinion, but having the ability to write other things gives the ability to be more creative!
Thank you for your support it means a lot.
Please like and share!

Psst. I’m starting a new blog in the next month, “Room94business@hotmail.co.uk” be sure to look out for posts with links to the new website.
It will be around beauty,fashion and nails! But also my own online clothing and beauty business. Which you can check out on depop.

I LOVE Blogging!!

Asking for it: Review

image

Amazon
Goodreads

Asking for it; is a very important book that covers a serious issue, rape.
LOUISE O’NEILL bravely tackeles how traumatic a rape can be, and how the power of social media can ruin someones life.

Throughout the book it has the power to change your emoties continuously; from angry, to sad and even confusion. The topic of rape is serious and a book created showing the reality of what it’s like, has a huge impact on the reader.

The main character emma, was a popular girl with everything a teenager wishes for. She’s out going and having the time of her life; until she goes to a party and a boy rapes her, filming the horrible act and posting it on social media.
Gradually you see emmas story grow into something upsetting and difficult to come to terms with, as people accuse her of lying, shes lost all her confidence and he family is falling appart.

Overall the story is an eye opener, and is a definite read but not for the faint hearted. Louise leaves the story open, as she quotes “for rape victims it’s never really over”, so it’s open to interpretation as to how emmas story ends.

I rate 5 Stars.
