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.

Gifted

Hey guys!

Since I went through a very horrible reading slump, a lot of what I did was TV and Movies. Therefore, I hope you guys are ready for the massive influx of posts about all the things I’ve watched.

There is a lot.

I’m starting with Gifted – because it was one of my favourites.


IMDB Rating: 7.7/10MV5BMjQ2NDU3NDE0M15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMjA3OTg0MDI@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,675,1000_AL_
Year: 2017
Time: 1h 41min
Cast: Chris Evans, McKenna Grace, Jenny Slate, and Octavia Spencer
Genre: Drama

Plot: Frank, a single man raising his child prodigy niece Mary, is drawn into a custody battle with his mother.

 

 


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!

Thanks so much for reading, don’t forget to follow my blog as well as my other social media sites linked in the side bar.

Until next time,

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.

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller (Spoiler-Free Review)

Hi guys!

Today I have a review to bring you, that I’m quite excited to write. Recently I’ve been in a bit of a book slump and I’ve had a hard time finding time to sit down and read instead of watch Netflix 24/7. This unfortunately hasn’t changed much, but I did have a great time reading this book and finished it in two sittings – which I think is pretty good for where I’m at right now.

This is a great novel for when you’re in a reading slump because it moves so fast, so I’m very glad I decided to pick this one up.

Favourites of the Week: Aug 4th – 11th

Hey guys! So I’ve decided to start a new series on my blog called Favourites of the Week. This series will basically recap the things I loved the week prior.

This can include:

  • movies
  • books
  • people
  • memories
  • tv
  • makeup?
  • clothing

and everything in between!

I really wanted to start incorporating more things that aren’t just book reviews in my blog (don’t worry there will still be lots of those) and I thought this would be a great addition!

I hope you enjoy – comment down below if you like this idea or if it’s just a little too weird for my blog and I should not do it.
