Blogmas 2017!

Image
Hey Guys x

So it's almost that time of the year again, and for the fourth year in a row, I will be doing Blogmas.

However, like last year, I won't be doing it how it's usually done.

Last year, I did this thing where, I did Christmas-based posts on one day, and the next I'd do a post about movies, then back to Christmas and so on.

This year will be kind of like that. Except, rather than a random post about movies, for every day that I do a Christmas-based post, I'll be putting up a film review.

There are a lot of reasons that I'm doing it like this, mainly because I love movies more than anything and I'm kind of losing my love for Christmas. But more about that on Blogmas Day 3!

So I will be posting on this blog every day from December 1st (Friday) until Christmas day, and then there will still be maybe 3 or so posts before the end of the year. It'll be the most active my blog has been this whole year!

For now, there won't be another post on the blo…

50 Questions About Books!

Image
Hey Guys x

It's been a while since I've done a tag! Especially one about books!

I found this tag on 'My Little Book Blog' and thought that it looked really interesting, so I'm going to answer the questions. Feel free to answer them yourselves, but leave me a comment with your blog link so I can read them!

1. What was the last book you read?
'All That She Can See' by Carrie Hope Fletcher. I've got other books that i'm almost finished with, but that's the last one that I've completely read from start to finish.

2. Was it a good one?
Yes it was, it was amazing actually.

3. What made it good?
It was such a unique story, something that I've never even thought about before. Carrie is very good at mixing fantasy and reality, and I love that about this book.

4. Would you recommend it to other people?
I really would, whether you're a fan of her or not, the book is definitely worth a read.

5. How often do you read?
Well, as I'm preparing to go…

Thor: Ragnarok | Film Review

Image
Hey Guys x
I am a huge superhero movie fan, but in particular, a huge Marvel fan. So of course when this film came out I was so excited to see it. Other then the trailer, I was going in blind. I haven't read the comic books, so I didn't know what 'Ragnarok' meant and was just expecting to see a slightly better than average film that could complete the 'Thor' trilogy and then leave it alone.
Boy was I wrong!
In the last Thor film, we saw Loki pretending to be his father Odin. So when we return to Asgard in this film, that's what we come back to - Asgard as run by Loki. Of course, this doesn't last long! But then the real threat makes itself known. Hela, the goddess of death, has come to destroy Asgard. But to defeat her, Thor must find a way off of a new planet (Sakaar), and put together a team of people that will be able to destroy Hela for good.
To be honest, for how good this film is, that's a really bad explanation. Trust me, if I could just wri…

October/November Favourites | 2017

Image
Hey Guys x

I've decided to do my October and November faves in one post. This is because I waited so long to do the October ones, which would mean that I'd be putting up a November favourites post in two weeks, which just makes no sense.

Anything that I fall in love with at the end of this month will go into my December Faves.

Anyway, let's get on with the post - it's a long one!

Favourite Movie (1): The Big Sick


A review of this incredible film is coming, so check back on my blog in a few days. But just to give it the briefest of introductions, it's a powerful love story that has to overcome both illness and cultural differences, and I loved every second of it.

Favourite Movie (2): Thor: Ragnarok


Again, a review of this is coming very soon, so I don't want to talk about it too much here. But, if you read my blog, you know how much I love Marvel, and you know how much it means to me. So I just feel like it's important for me to say that this film does deserve…

Wonder | Film Review

Hey Guys x
As part of 'World Kindness Day', I got to see this film 2 weeks early at my local cinema and couldn't wait to give it a review!
This is based on a book - whether you like the movie, or the idea of the movie or not, you all should definitely read the book because it's an incredible story.
So, this movie is about a boy called Auggie. All he wants is to be ordinary, but he can't be, because of his facial disfigurement. Or, more accurately, the way that people react to his disfigurement. When the movie starts, Auggie is about to go to school for the first time, having been home schooled by his mother until then. Middle School is hard enough when everyone isn't staring at you, when people aren't scared of speaking to you or touching you. For Auggie, this makes school 10 times worse. Auggie can't change his face, but can the other students change the way they see him?
I loved this film. Like, seriously loved it.
I loved the book, so I was really e…
