Hi guys! Sorry that I haven’t been posting for quite a while now. Just busy with school and other personal stuff. And since I don’t know what to review right now, let me share to you a short story that I wrote when I was in my Senior years in High school. Enjoy! :)
I was sitting at the bench under the tree in the park. Just feeling the soft breeze pass by through me. Listening to the birds chirping, rustling of the leaves in the trees and the waves made by the wind in the pond. I closed my eyes feeling the light of the sunshine, when it suddenly became dark. I opened my eyes to see what happened, and saw that my guy best friend was standing in front of me. He smiled and asked if he can sit beside me. I agreed so he sat down. He looked depressed. I wondered if he and his girl friend had a row. I thought twice before asking him but I can’t just leave it unknown to me. So I asked him about and he told me that he did have a row with his girl friend. He told me on what happened and that his girl friend broke up with him. He sobbed and I put my arm over his shoulders and told him that someone out there would just be waiting for him and that someone would be better than her. He gave me a smile while a tear was trickling down his nose. I smiled back at him and blushed a little as he wiped the tear that was trickling down his nose. He hugged me like I was his little sister. I blushed even more. He whispered to me thanks and said that I was right. I smiled as he let go. I wanted to tell him that I liked him but before I could speak, he opened his mouth and said. “You know what, you’re the best friend I ever had. You’re like the sister I never had.”
Hi guys. Sorry that I haven’t been posting lately. It’s just that I was busy with school everything and this was supposed to be up yesterday but this post got deleted and not published. I seriously did not know what happened, so here I am starting this post from scratch again. Anyway, I hope you guys understand and enjoy this review!
*The book review was already posted just look for it at the previous posts.*
Review of the Movie:
The movie I think was fantastic. I mean I’m the person who tries to understand the movie so much that I totally related to it. :)) I mean at first it may be boring if it wasn’t your type of movie (I must be honest the first time watched it, I totally dozed off.), but if you understand the story, you know it’s deep. So deep. But honestly, I didn’t understand the story the first and second time I watched the movie. I had to re-watch the move 3 – 5 times to fully understand the story. But still the movie was great. ;)
Rating 4 out of 5 ;)
Comparison of the Movie to the Book:
The movie was so different to the book. I mean of course, it left out tons of information in the book. Like there are a lot of scenes that should have been in the movie that was important to the book. Compared to the book, the movie was so jumpy with the scenes. Scenes that were removed that should not have been moved. Ugh It was just so different. The concept was still there but it was so hard to picture out. That’s all I can say before I say anything that might spoil anything. =))
Hi guys! This post was supposed to be up yesterday but for some sort of reason it got deleted. And sorry if I wasn’t able to post any review these past few weeks due to the fact that I’ve been busy with school work since our Finals week is coming up any time soon. But last friday, I watched the TFIOS movie and I shall share to you all what I thought about it. Okay? Okay. ;)
*Review of the book was already uploaded before. *
Review of the Movie:
… This movie is just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I seriously did not want to leave the cinema when I watched this movie. No words can describe how much I love this movie. I really want to watch it again. Even though this movie made me cry a bucket full of tears, I want to re-watch it over and over again. Even though you are a person who haven’t read the book yet, you will certainly love the movie! My boyfriend did not read the book but he totally enjoyed the movie. That is how good the movie is! Words just can’t describe how much I love love love this movie!
5 out of 5!! *hearts everywhere*
Comparison to the Book:
As a book adaptation… It was sooooo good!!! Minor details were left out but everything that you expect to be in the movie is there! Almost everything that I expected to be in the movie is in there! The eulogy part was just how I imagined it to be. And John Green wasn’t lying and being biased when he said that the movie is as close as it can be to the book (yes, I watch John Green’s videos and I am also subscribed to him *laughs*). It was just amazing however you can actually notice how much the ending part lacked so many parts in the book but it still worked perfectly! Ughh. Just amaaazing!! I’ll stop here now. Bye guys!
Summary/ Short Description:
Charlie is a Freshman and while he’s not biggest the geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years, yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs and the rocky horror picture show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can’t stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.
Another book that is totally out of my comfort zone. I must tell you though this book is so real. I mean you know that this can happen to anyone. One person might be actually undergoing this state right now. And that I totally relate to Charlie when you know he was just this person observing everything, give all the opportunity to others and not yourself. I totally know how that feels. However, this book made my brain go in circles that sometimes I had to go back another day (since the book is written in diary/letter form) just to fully understand what was happening. But I love how the book was written, due to the fact that it was unique. But this book just kept me going in circles with all what happened to Charlie. I still liked the book though. I didn’t love it but I liked it. So it was okay for me.
Review: 3.5 out of 5 :)
Hi guys. Here’s another book review from the Inheritance Cycle! Enjoy.
Summary/ Short Description:
Darkness falls… Swords clash… Evil reigns.
Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesméra, land of the elves, for further training in magic and swordsmanship, the vital skills of the Dragon Rider. It is the journey of a lifetime, filled with awe-inspiring new places and people, each day a fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and Eragon isn’t sure whom he can trust.
Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle back home in Carvahall- one that puts Eragon in even graver danger.
Will the king’s dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life…
Hands down to Christopher Paolini for making another wonderful story for readers like me to read. As I keep on reading this series it keeps on drawing me further into it. This book just gave me another world to travel to. I mean seriously, who wouldn’t want to go to Ellesméra right? This book just added another place in my “must go to places” list. Oh and Eragon. The feels I just can’t even… Ugh. You know what friendzone is? Yep. Eragon is in that state. Poor him. Why go to Arya if I’m already here for him? Just kidding. *laughs* Kidding aside, this book was just fantastic. Except for that tiny teeny little ending he had in store for us. Was not actually expecting that. Totally did not expect that. But the three different person’s point of view worked for me. I mean it worked for me, I don’t know with you guys but I thought that it was a brilliant idea. So you know what’s happening in every angle in the story right? And it was written perfectly. That’s all I can say fir now.
Here’s my wonderful rating: 5 out of 5 ;)
Hi guys! I’m sorry that I didn’t post last week. I was just busy. Anyway here’s what I’ll give you today! :)
*Review of the book was already posted please look at the post before this*
Review of Movie:
Since this was a movie waaaaay back let me just say this. It was an amazing movie back at the time. Even my mom loved the movie and she rarely likes this kind of movies. But one thing about the movie was that it was just scattered. Events happening here and there until you get to the part when you’ll just think “Oh okay. We’re at this part already but what happened to this or that.” It was just out of the question on how they put it all together. I just can’t explain how I feel about this movie. It was great but you still think about how scattered it was. And let me tell you this, I’m not a girl who loves the events scattered. I like it just plain and simple and organized. But this, nope, just events were just everywhere.
Rating: 3 out of 5
Comparison to the Novel:
Now, this movie was just a disaster as a book adaptation. It was like throwing the book into little pieces. You know Percy Jackson the Movie? Yeah the adaptation was just like that. Horrible. Ugh it even gives me goosebumps just to think how horrible it was. A lot, let me tell you, A LOT was changed. It was like watching another story with the same characters. And that is a big no no when you talk about movies that adapted a book. I mean, sure some bits can be changed but not the whole storyline. This movie changed almost everything and I did not like it at all. While I was watching this movie for the second time (after reading the book), it was just too much for me to handle. But I needed to finish it just to review it. And it scarred me for life. Ugh. Just a disaster. So disappointing.
Happy Easter Sunday Everybody! Since it’s Easter Sunday I’ll be reviewing a book that has an egg in it as an easter egg treat for you all. And yes, as said in the title, it is Eragon from the Inheritance Cycle. Enjoy!
Summary/ Short Description:
One boy… One Dragon… A world of adventure.
When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.
Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds.
Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands…
I’ve been dying to read this book ever since it came out. And sadly I just read it this month (thanks to my friend who lent his book to me). And after the long wait, it was worth it. I was back in my comfort zone to where magical creatures such as elves, dragons, magicians, dwarves and others were roaming the land. It was just heaven for me. And this book was so amazing. I really like how Christopher Paolini discussed the back story thoroughly and slowly in order for the reader to easily understand what was going on even though there were a lot that was going on through out this book. And Saphira? Ooh I just fell in love with her. I also just love how Christopher Paolini had an ancient language going on the story which makes it realistic. And the glossary at the end of the book was just so helpful. I love how he wrote Eragon. Eragon seriously acted like any farm boy who grew from the country. The way he acts, thinks and talks before Brom taught him anything lets you know that he grew up in the farm. I mean, all in all, the characters were written perfectly. Their story just made so much sense once you’ve read through the book. And how they were written was just fantastic as it made clear into my world on how they really look like. Ugh. There are just so many things that I love about this book. I just can’t say it all cause words are not enough how I love this book so much.
And as for my rating 5 out of 5 because it is so perfect.
