Book vs. Movie: A Wrinkle in Time

Hello there!

This is going to be a quick post about my thoughts on the A Wrinkle in Time book and movie. I would do a list of all the similarities and difference but then we will be here forever. So, I will just tell you how I felt about both the book and the movie. Now, let’s get started.

First, off like any book being made into a movie, there were many changes. I feel that the changes that were made were fine. I think that the movie still delivered the message that the book originally gave in a cool way. The movie had all the main components that were Continue reading “Book vs. Movie: A Wrinkle in Time”

   Reason: I just love their relationship. They have their ups and downs but they are always there for each other when it matters.

Read-A-Thon by Zoe

Hello there!

Yesterday, December 9th 2017 I participated in the 24 hour readathon hosted by ReadbyZoe on YouTube. This post I will let you guys know how it went. Now let’s get into it.

I stated the readathon at 1:30 AM by reading One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake. I started ODT in November and I was halfway into the book. The goal was to get a good a good amount of it read because I have been reading ODT for far too long. So I read from 1:30 Am until 5 Am. I ended up reading about 70ish pages which was a really good dent.  At 5 AM I decided to go to sleep because I was really tired. Continue reading “Read-A-Thon by Zoe”

Review: Rise of the Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz

Hello there!

 

   Finally, the last review of the The Isle of the Lost books. I know this is really late but better late than never right? Well, I say we just get into this review. This will be spoiler free so do not fear and read on.

   I am going to start off by talking about what I liked about the book. One of the things that I liked is the fact that things are explained. I liked that they explained where Harry Hook and Gil came from. In the first two books we know that Captain Hook has a daughter named Harriet and Gaston has twin sons named Gaston and Gaston. So when I heard about Harry son of Captain Hook and Gil son of Gaston I thought they were just going to pretend that Harriet and the Gaston twins were never a thing. But it is explained that  Harriet and Harry are siblings and the Gaston twins and Gil are brothers as well. You may say well duh obviously they are siblings. But Harry and Gil are not mentioned in the first two books they just pop up in the third book. That is what made me think that they were going to pretend that Harriet and the Gaston twins weren’t a thing. Make sense? I hope it does.
