I promise to get to them and some of your posts sometime in the next 3 weeks. Right now I'm on work mode so I don't really do anything else. Life is busy, I have no time for much.
I'm surprised I do the things I do haha anyways getting to the good stuff, I can't be wasting anymore time!
Pride and Prejudice by: Jane Austen: The story of the Bennet family, though mostly focusing on Elizabeth. They have five daughters and Mrs. Bennet wants them all to be married. Throughout the novel we see that some do, while others have trouble finding themselves husbands to support them. Elizabeth says no to almost everyone who asks her, her eyes are set for Mr. Darcy. It’s a complicated turn of events but maybe they end up together. The story was told in no ones perspective so the reader felt like they were sitting in. Characters were introduced as they appeared in the story, which made it hard to figure out who was who. But overall it was a beautiful love story.
Kiss of Death by: Rachel Caine: The eighth book in the Morganville Vampires series. In this novel, things get really interesting. We leave Morganville behind and head for Dallas. But before we can arrive in Dallas we arrive in a small town called Blacke, which has it’s own vampires. This is a really fresh novel since it takes place outside of the original setting and we are placed in a new one. It gives the reader a break from having all novels take place in the same spot. Overall, the writing was well done, a lot of details were provided to make the story colourful.
Elegy by: Amanda Hocking: The final book in the Watersong series. Gemma with the help of her sister and friends try to break the siren curse. They try so hard, but does it work? The story went on for quite a while. It feels like what happened could have been shorter or split into separate books. The novel kept the reader reading though. The ending was simply cute and beautiful. The plot twists that happened throughout the novel are what kept it interesting and feeling like it was worth it to read until the end because the ending was truly sweet. Overall a series that is finally not about vampires, but mermaids.
Pacific Rim: A film where it’s evil monsters versus giant robots. A portal has opened at the bottom of the sea and evil monsters bigger than buildings are coming through. The humans have made it their mission to close this portal to save them from the destruction these monsters are creating. The film was unnecessarily long. Things could have happened at a faster pace. The plotline was predicable and from the beginning you could tell what was going to happen. It wasn’t all action packed either. There were moments with great action scenes, but other scenes were just boring and useless. Overall, it wasn’t the greatest movie, but if you’re into robots it can be seen as a good movie.
Smoke by: Ellen Hopkins: The sequel to Burned. The novel is told in the perspective of both Pattyn and her sister Jackie. Pattyn has run away to California to hide herself away from what she’s done. She starts a new life as a maid to a rich family. Jackie is at home left to clean up the mess. But when a tragic accident happens bringing Pattyn home, things unfold and the truth comes out. The novel was well crafted and made you think a lot about family dynamics and the truth about love. The ending was sweet and was a good ending for the novel. All the loose ends were tied and it showed that life was happy, sorta like a fairy tale ending.
Beautiful Darkness by: Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl: The second book in the Caster Chronicles. In this book, Lena still needs to choose light or dark, but she doesn’t know which to choose. If she chooses dark, all her light caster family will die and vise versa. It’s up to Ethan, her one true love to help save her and put her on the right path. The novel is filled with lots of drama, and action to keep you reading. The fact that this caster world exists inside the normal world makes it even more interesting. In this novel, both the magic world, and the regular world come together to help Lena choose her path. It was an interesting and captivating novel.
Bangerz by: Miley Cyrus: The new album from Miley since 2010. This is a new side of Miley. The album starts with Adore You, which is classic Miley singing about the one she loves more than anything in the world. Throughout this album you can see how much the breakup with Liam Hemsworth affected her. We Can’t Stop, her first single off this album, is catchy and poppy. 4x4 which features Nelly is another catchy tune, which makes you, want to get up and dance. My Darlin’ which features Future is a slower song that still has that beat that makes you want to groove. FU is a piano driven mad song. It’s a song that is angry about breakups. Miley starts out singing, which moves to growling and back to higher pitched singing. Do My Thang which has a R&B feel to it. Overall the album is a good album from her that is catchy and has you wanting more.
Crossed by: Ally Condie: The second book in the Matched series. In the first novel, Cassia had broken out of her social norms in Society to run to find the one she loves, Ky. They meet in the Outer Provinces, but things don’t go as they plan, and a different course of action happens. It seems that Cassia is now going full circle back to where she came from, in the last book we’ll find out for sure. The novel was well written with quite a bit of emotion that kept you reading for more. What really kept you reading was the fact that the author mentions a character has a secret and she hasn’t revealed it yet! This novel was written a little differently as well, it had the points of view of both Cassia and Ky. Ky’s voice was more laid back in writing style where as Cassia’s like the first book felt more formal. It really gave a distinction of character. Overall, a great second book leading up to the third!
That's all for me, what have you guys been listening, reading or watching? :D
