The Darkest Minds Book Review

Published April 21, 2019 by I Blog

Hiya!

 

So, I reviewed this film a while ago, which made me decide to read the book.

darkest minds

Here’s the synopsis (well part of it anyway. The second half literally just tells you what happens in the entire book, so…)

When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.

How To Train Your Dragon!

Published April 20, 2019 by I Blog

Hello!

Okay, How To Train Your Dragon is my new favourite film. I just watched the first one for the first time and it is sooooo good. I love it so much!

 

 

The animation was brilliant and so well done. And I just love it. The style was just so nice to look at and there was so much detail.

Save The Cat! Writes A Novel – Rant Review

Published April 14, 2019 by I Blog

Hey guys.

 

Today, I’m doing a kind of rant review of the book Save The Cat! Writes A Novel by Jessica Brody. It’s kind of like a self-help book for novel writers.

save da cat

Novelist Jessica Brody presents a comprehensive story-structure guide for novelists that applies the famed Save the Cat! screenwriting methodology to the world of novel writing. Revealing the 15 “beats” (plot points) that comprise a successful story–from the opening image to the finale–this book lays out the Ten Story Genres (Monster in the House; Whydunit; Dude with a Problem) alongside quirky, original insights (Save the Cat; Shard of Glass) to help novelists craft a plot that will captivate–and a novel that will sell.

10 Types Of People That You Meet In A Coffee Shop ☕️☕️☕️

Published April 13, 2019 by I Blog

Hey guys.

 

Today is a types of people post.

 

So, here’s the 10 types of people that you’ll (most likely) meet in a coffee shop!

(Obviously, I am also over-exaggerating  a lot of these things, so please don’t get offended. Also, there are most definitely more than these types. THIS IS NOT MEANT TO OFFEND ANYONE. This post is a joke, please do not take offence).

 

1) The Student

This person sits in the corner of a coffee shop doing school related things – eg revision or writing essays. You’ll probably find them sat next to a wall outlet with their laptop plugged in, probably looking like they’re about to cry from some sort of stress related thing. They’re often squinting at some screen. The student’s natural habitat s sitting at a table surrounded by many school books and about 7 empty cups of coffee… especially during finals week.

 

 

2) Book Worm 🐛

The person who’ll sit in a coffee shop and read for hours. (My life). This type of person is especially common if said coffee shop is near a book store, or it is like some Waterstones stores where there is a coffee shop in the store (win-win!). You’ll often find this person with a very cold cup of coffee that they have taken about two sips from (it’s easy to forget about your coffee when you’re invested in a good book). Do not try to communicate with the book worm (unless it is about books), because you will either earn a death stare or be ignored. You have been warned.

 

 

3) Coffee Addict

The person who just. Needs. Coffee.

You’ll usually see them very early in the morning (as soon as the coffee shop opens) and they will be unable to interact. They tend to remind people of a zombie as they move very sluggishly and their vocabulary seems to be restricted to mainly grunts and groans. Once they have had their morning coffee, they’re usually nice and pleasant to be around, but before that… nobody has tried to make conversation with them and made it out alive.

March Wrap Up 2019!

Published April 6, 2019 by I Blog

Helloooooo!

 

Today I’m doing my reading wrap up for March 2019. I actually read quite a lot this month – 9 books! Although one was a World book day short and one was a novella, but still.

 

So, firstly I read The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. (Film review here)

darkest minds

When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.
I read this between February 25th and March 4th. I’m planning on doing a full review for this, so stay tuned.

OWLS Magical Readathon TBR

Published April 2, 2019 by I Blog

Hello.

 

I’ve decided to do The OWLS Magical Readathon (for more info, click here for a video by the creator). This post was meant tone uploaded yesterday, but I’ve had a lot on my plate recently and I’m trying to schedule like a bajillion blog posts (life update coming soon?)

 

I have decided to not pick a career to aim for, but instead see what books I read and pick a career afterwards. So, let’s get into it. I really don’t think I’m going to read all of these books, but anyway….
