Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Hey everyone! Today I’m bringing you a review for Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie.

This novel was one that I had been really looking forward to reading after I heard that the movie was coming out. It was a relatively short novel, but despite that, there was a lot of interesting things going on.

I hope you all enjoy the review!

An Astronauts Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield

Hey guys!

Today I am writing a review for An Astronauts Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield. This book was one I didn’t expect to read recently but I found in on my boyfriend’s bookshelf and couldn’t help myself. I’ve heard about this book but had never felt intrigued enough to purchase the book myself.

Recently I’ve gotten back into reading and I started off with starting It by Stephen King. That book is a monster of a book so I found this novel to be very easy and quick to get through.

October Wrap Up!

Hey guys, so October was finally the end to my dreaded reading slump (I hope) and I had an okay reading month. My reading did increase more near the end of the month so I didn’t manage to read too many novels, but despite that I’m very happy with what I did accomplish this month!

I hope you enjoy my October wrap up!

The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson 

Hello everyone!

I’ve had a spurt of reading energy (mostly because I was procrastinating studying for my midterm) and finished Stalking Jack the Ripper AND started The Heart of Betrayal yesterday! This reading slump I’ve had (for like two/three months) has been hell, and all I’ve been able to do is listen to audiobooks while I drive.

Finally I’ve kind of got a slight reading routine going and I’m very happy about it. Therefore, today I’m bringing a review for The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson.

This novel has been one I have been putting off for quite a while now, mainly because I bought the paperback versions of the first two novels and I wanted to wait until the paperback of the last book came out – which I don’t even know when that is anymore.

Anywho, I’m just going to jump into my review for The Heart of Betrayal now!

Enjoy!

Movies You Didn’t Know Were Books

Hello everyone!

Today on my blog I wanted to talk about some movies that everyone knows (or should know) about, and how they are based off of books.

Typically, if a movie is based off of a book it’s something that is widely known and displayed on a lot of platforms.

You don’t usually see movies not mention their affiliation to a novel.

I hope you enjoy this blog post and learn about some very odd book to movie adaptations that are not known by a large part of the public.

TED Talk Tuesday

Hello everyone!

Today I am going to be doing something a bit different from what I usually do on my blog. Not that my blog is anything close to normal, but you get what I’m saying.

I have been a fan of TED Talks for a while now, and I’ve always felt like watching/listening to these talks always leads to me thinking about things I’ve never really thought about before.

Therefore, I wanted to create a way for me to be able to think about what I’m hearing in a new way, as well as share what I’m hearing with other people so they also get some insight into something they may have never thought about before.

I understand that this may not be what you’re following my blog for and that’s totally okay. Your regularly programmed blog posts will resume tomorrow/whenever I next post, but for today we’re doing this.

I hope you guys enjoy this new “segment” on my blog. This is just a test run, but I hope that it goes well and that some of you maybe even enjoy it.

October TBR

Hello everyone!

This month is by far my favorite of all the months, this might have something to do with the fact that my birthday takes place in the second week of the month… but also HALLOWEEN!

This month I am excited to read all the spooky books I don’t usually have a chance to read throughout the year.

I’m going to jump right into my TBR because I am very excited to be able to read these wonderful books this month.

Also, for all of you wondering where I’ve been the past couple months, I apologize, but I have been in the worlds worst reading/writing slump and haven’t been in the mood to blog. I’m so sorry for being awol but I am slowly working my way back into writing this blog and enjoying it.

My Thoughts

I have been wanting to watch this movie for quite a while now, and I’m very glad I finally got to it.

The reason I was so drawn to this movie was mainly due to the fact that it had Chris Evans and he is a very handsome man, but this movie is so much more than that pretty face.

This movie is incredibly emotional if you like kids even a little bit, honestly even if you hate kids this movie will tear you apart.

This movie follows a man who is taking care of his dead sister’s child. Mary (the kid) is a literal genius but Frank (Chris Evans) wants her to live a normal life because he believes that his sister’s (who was also a genius) life was filled with too much work and too little play, and he doesn’t want that for Mary. In enters Frank’s mother who thinks that Mary should be learning and being tutored 24/7 so she can live up to her potential – madness ensues.

I really loved watching Mary solve equations and do all the smart things that genius’ do, I thought it was very interesting to watch. I also felt all the emotions when we saw how this whole situation was effecting Frank and Mary.

All in all this movie was very very heartbreaking. You feel all the emotions when you watch this movie, and you see a lot happen that you don’t expect.

I thought that all of the actors in this movie were amazing, and played their parts wonderfully. Mary, played by McKenna Grace, was also incredible to watch.

I definitely think you should watch this movie if you enjoy Dramatic movies that will make you emotional.


That concludes my review for Gifted. I hope you enjoyed!

Movie Madness: Annabelle Creation

Hi guys!

Today I am bringing to you a review of Annabelle Creation. I was excited to see this movie because I was a big fan of the Conjuring 1. Little did I know how terrifying this movie would end up being.

I didn’t expect the amount of jump scares and scary bits this movie would have.

Here’s a hint.

There were a lot.
