The Fellowship of The Ring By: J.R.R Tolkien: The first book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. In this book we meet Bilbo’s, (from the Hobbit) heir Frodo. This time we don’t follow Bilbo but Frodo who gains the ring. Now that he has the ring, he must go on an adventure to get rid of the ring. The book is full of elves, dwarves, men, and hobbits. It’s an adventure that seems to never end, from beginning of the book to the end of the book there is always something going on. There are dry spells in the book where you wonder where it could possibly go, but it all turns out.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower By: Stephen Chbosky: An amazing story told from the point of view from a 15 year old boy who is just starting high school. You get to be in his world for his first year of high school, and see how hard it is for him, through the ups and the downs. The story is told in the form of letters that the main character Charlie is writing to. The story takes anyone who reads it on a rollercoaster of emotions, and it’s fun, and sometimes it’s frustrating because we’ve all felt what he’s going through. A truly inspiring book for the coming of age, age group!
Life of Pi: Based on the novel, Life of Pi, the movie follows the story of a young boy who has an amazing story of surveying a shipwreck with a tiger. The movie itself was phenomenal. It was in 3D that actually enhanced and used 3D to capture great moments on film. Things actually stood out. The colour was brilliant, and it followed the book to a T. It is definitely worth checking out if you have read the book. If you haven’t read the book, read the book first because it will feel like you are watching the book on screen!
Magic Mike: Starring Channing Tatum as a stripper. The movie starts out real good, and it looks like it’s going to be a promising movie, but after the first scene everything just goes downhill from there. There really is no plot. Tatum’s character Mike really just wants to design custom-made furniture, he’s just a stripper for the money, when they take in a new recruit, and he has to teach him the ropes. Sure this movie has it’s sex appeal, but other then that, it’s downright boring and not worth two hours of your time!
P!nk- The Truth About Love: The album starts off with a punch with the track Are We All We Are? It’s classic P!nk. It’s followed by Blow Me (One Last Kiss) the first single off the album, which is a cry to try and leave, but you can’t. The whole album is focused around love. Just Give Me A Reason is a duet with Nate Ruess from fun. where they sing about love, and their voices work really well together. True Love is a corky song about love in which if you’ve ever been in love you can relate to. Slut Like You is upbeat and a little on the drunk crazy side of P!nk that we’ve seen before throughout her other albums. Here Comes The Weekend, which features Eminem, is also another great collaboration that you’re able to dance to. The album ends in The Great Escape, which is a beautiful piano ballade that shows P!nk’s ranging vocals and shows the softer side of her. Great, fun album to listen to whenever you want to be in a good mood.
Fallen By: Lauren Kate: The first book in the Fallen series where we start off with Luce being sent to a mental school, and she doesn’t know anything about the place. Soon she finds out that the people at the school aren’t who they really are. She meets Daniel where she finds they are star-crossed lovers. The book was set up really well for the reader to feel just as disorientated as the main character, though it seems a lot of books are doing that. Though the story line was very cute. It’s best to go into the book and series without knowing what it’s about; it makes for a better story.
Taylor Swift- Fearless: The album opens with the track Fearless, where Taylor Swift still has her country twang. Hey Stephen is a fun happy go lucky song that will make a girl start to sing along, and feel loved. Very teenager-ish the album is with songs like Fifteen, Forever & Always, and The Way I Loved You. Listening to them makes you feel like a teenager all over again. The Best Day is a tribute to her father, which is really sweet. The album ends on Change that is upbeat and fun. The whole album is a cheery love story, with its ups and downs and its heartbreaks.
Taylor Swift- Red: The album opens with State of Grace, which is a five-minute song that starts off slow, then speeds up, then slows again. Red is a song about loving a boy and saying how their relationship was colours. I Knew You Were Trouble is a very catchy song that you might sing along to, even if you don’t want to. This album is full of relationship songs like every other Taylor Swift record, though she has grown up with her song 22. But the rest of the album is full of her songs about relationships; you’d think she was the relationship Queen. Songs like Stay Stay Stay, Begin Again, and The Lucky One is proof of her relationship type songs. If you’re not a Swift fan then this album won’t be any different from anything she’s done before.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: Based on the novel, The Hobbit, it’s a story of a young Bilbo Bagins and his adventures with dwarves and elves and goblins. The movie begins how the first Lord of The Rings book started, and jumps right into the adventure. The movie was three hours long and had some dry spots. It took the book and showed every detail. Where the book was dry, they spiced up the movie. Definitely a good movie full of action and was pretty comic, which wasn’t expected, but was added in very well. Just make sure you are very comfortable while watching for three hours!
Shiver By: Maggie Stiefvater: The first book to the Shiver series. Everything you ever knew about werewolves is just thrown out the window. When Grace was attacked when she was younger, Sam saved her, now it’s time that she save him. Very teenager love story, but it does have those moments where you don’t know what it going to happen. You are kept guessing until the end when you know what will happen, then you are thrown through another loop and you have to wait for the next book. The writing wasn’t boring; though it wasn’t the best it still kept the reader reading until the very last page.
That's it for me, until we meet again in 30 days! What are you guys reading, watching or listening to? :)
