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.

FrontCover.Final - CopySummary/Description:

Welcome to the rabbit hole…

I am the last person in New York City who would fall head over heels in love. Independent.  Self-possessed. Why would I want to f**k that up? My online dating profile at bd-fet.com simply reads: “Just looking.”

So why am I obsessing about Jon Sudbury?

Jon, the reporter, is vanilla as a milkshake and has probably never tasted rice and beans on the same plate before we met.

At least that’s what I thought. Why can’t people remain simple and predictable? All I want is control, not to be sent hurtling at maximum speed into the unknown.

Nothing about our story makes sense. The thing is, I can handle desire, lust, passion, even betrayal…

But love is another world altogether.

And this is not a love story.

Review:

Let me say this before I start this review, I am not a fan of these type of genres of novels. But let me tell you, this just kept me reading on for more. I seriously don’t know why but it just let me keep on reading even though it has various scenes that I can’t handle (just a little bit). But seriously, this was just great, amazing. I don’t know why on why I haven’t heard this book be recommended to me from my friends. By the way, some of you might be saying that I’m saying good things about this book because it was told to me by the author herself but you know what it didn’t. It was just seriously phenomenal. This just got caught me off guard with regards to its plot story. But one thing I don’t like about it though was the ending. It was such an open-ended ending and it just ugh. So hard to explain. I seriously want more. Like more of this. More of the story about Sabrien and Jon. Just keeps me on hanging towards this story and I just can’t get enough of it. And seriously, I am like sharing it to all of my friends right now after I read it. I keep on telling them, guys you should read this, like seriously you should. Actually not should, you must. That’s how much I demand to them on how they really need to read it. And  another and last warning of mine: it is for MATURE audiences because it has adult content. (Like serious adult content over here).

5 out of 5 full of love! :*

Thanks again S.C. Rhyne love you to bits! :*

The Fault In Our Stars Book Review!

Here’s the book review of The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. :)

9780525478812_custom-7eb6cc16a8a3f2266865895e1718ac9e9d6232e0-s6-c30Summary:

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Review:

Okay let me be honest for a second, I don’t usually read these type of novels but let me tell you it was one of a hell bumpy ride. I never thought that I would enjoy this book. Like seriously, when one person recommended it to me for the first time, I was like nope not my type. But then people go on and on and on, about that I should seriously read the book. And here you go I did. The plot twist was just amazing. I never expected that to happen until it came closer. You know, I may not be a cheesy person but this will make you seriously feel tingly inside. And the tears, yep you can’t hold it back in especially for me that I’m such a soft person especially when it comes to reading. And let me tell you, even my friend who is a guy (yes, he’s straight) also had tears running down his face. See how this story like literally touches your heart. It’s just that this story can be so realistic that it can actually to real  people. It’s like you know a slice of life. The main character, Hazel, showed what the normal cancer patients endure while they have it. Not unlike others who is so well know and popular stuff. You get the point? It’s like she’s really a normal person that has cancer and shows us that this what cancer is, it’s not like one of those fantasies that the fictional or popular people show us. And don’t get me started with Augustus Waters. But let me say one thing though, their relationship is just amazing. But one thing I don’t like though, there are some spoilers of other books and movies inside the book like literally. But aside from that it was just amazing.

The Last Apprentice: Attack of the Fiend Book Review!

9780060891275

Summary:

“I see your future clearly. Your master will be dead, and you will be alone. It would be better if you had never been born.”

Thomas Ward is the apprentice for the local Spook, who banishes boggarts and drives away ghosts. But now a new danger is threatening Tom’s world: the witches are rising and the three most powerful clans are uniting in order to conjure an unimaginable evil.

Tom and the Spook set out to stop the witches before they unleash the demon. But when Tom finds himself on his own, he wonders if he has the courage and cunning to defeat the most powerful enemy he has ever encountered.

Review:

Now this, this is just one of the best books in the Wardstone Chronicles series. It’s just amazingly written. The Fiend/ Demon being unleashed by the three clans are just not explainable. The hardships that Mr. Gregory and Tom had to endure while fighting off and stopping the witches in rising the Fiend. Then the chests of Tom’s mom waiting to be revealed. Then to think that Tom, Alice and Mr. Gregory will be separated from one another are just all the feels coming through. I don’t want to say anymore cause I might spoil some more. So, to top it all off, it was such a great book and you would think that it would be the end of everything but nope, it still isn’t finished and the feels are just uncontrollable.

And lastly my rating 5 out of 5 :)

I hope all of you had a great 2013 and hope to see you next year! Love you guys! :**

The Last Apprentice: Night of the Soul Stealer Book Review!

Here’s the third book book review of the last apprentice series ;)

—-

9780060766245Summary:

It’s going to be a long, hard, cruel winter. And there couldn’t be a worse place to spend it than up on Anglezarke.

Thomas Ward is the apprentice for the local Spook, who captures witches and drives away ghosts. As the weather gets colder and the nights draw in, the Spook receives an unexpected visitor. Tom doesn’t know who the stranger is or what he wants, but the Spook suddenly decides it’s time to travel to his winter house, Anglezarke. Tom has heard it will be a bleak, forbidding place, and that menacing creatures are starting to stir somewhere on the moors nearby.

Can anything prepare Tom for what he finds there? What if the rumors about the evil beast called the Golgoth are true? And how much danger will Tom be in if the secrets the Spook has been trying to hide from the world are revealed?

 

Review:

Okay, this book just gave me the creeps. It literally surpassed the spook meter compared to the first and second book of the series. I mean come on, the place where Tom and Mr. Gregory was staying in, Anglezarke? Seriously? Anglezarke is just one of the most terrifying places that just entered my imagination. I just don’t know why Mr. Gregory has a need to stay in that scary place. Plus, it’s so damp and chilly. Ugh whyy?! Well, the reason will be said in the book but you know, he can have another way of doing and treating those things. I just can’t even explain my feels about the Spook’s secret. He tells Tom that he must not do this or that but he, the Spook, himself had forbidden his own rule, I mean code. I mean what?! Plus Alice’s actions? Uhm nope, not the smartest thing to do even though you are a witch. But you know, this was so well written that my emotions are just so jumbled up and I seriously don’t know what to totally feel about it. But one thing for sure. It was a great book and the series so far is just amazing.

Rating 5 out of 5  ;)
