The Lunar Chronicles

For a change, I am going to be reviewing a series in its entirety in just one blog post. I can remember seeing the covers for this series of books and always wondering about what secrets were hidden beneath them. A Glass shoe, a red cape… what did these things represent? After some time, I read the synopsis and realized that they were one of my favorite types of stories: fairy-tale re-tellings...

Hollow City

I took quite a long break between reading the first book, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and reading this sequel. The first book was good, but I wouldn’t have considered it to be one of my favorites. This was the reason that I didn’t end up continuing to read the series. However, after much egging on from my friend, I asked her to loan it to me and I started to read...

Haul

April 2017 Book Haul

This is the first time I've ever done one of these (been a lot of those lately). It's also not something I will necessarily do every month, because there might be times where I don't get any books (there's these things called libraries!). However, my local library had a spring sale and I also went to a second hand bookstore, so I figured I might as well do a haul post. All of the synopsis' are copied from Amazon. The images were obtained on Google images...

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

As soon as I’d finished reading the first book, there wasn’t any time to lose. Immediately, I was into the next book, thrilled by the fast-moving plot and dangerous circumstances. Again, I read the book in record time, wishing to finish the series as fast as possible, though another part of me wanted it to last forever. Warning: This review contains spoilers from the first Hunger Games book...

Intermittent Updates

4/27/2017 “Middle of the Night”

Just now as I'm writing this I just listened to the new single from my favorite band: The Vamps. Since they have a blooming awesome new single out, there will be an extra special book review coming out this weekend! They released their book a few months ago and I will review this as well as the normal Saturday review. I hope you all had a lovely day. Do any of you listen to The Vamps too? I would make this a more detailed post, but I have to go have another dance party. Mayah XO

Movie Review

Beauty and the Beast

For my first ever movie review, I have chosen one of the best movies (to me) ever made. Many people have, of course, seen the original Beauty and the Beast animated Disney movie, but today I am reviewing the newest version. One reason this movie is very special to me is because Emma Watson is my idol. Also, the movie was so emotional and I am still amazed at the beautiful singing in it (the cast album is also rockin’)…

Ella Enchanted

I can remember my babysitter when I was very young telling me this story over and over. It was a twist on Cinderella (which she also told me over and over). Ever since I can remember, it was one of my favorite books. I have read it at least 3 times in my lifetime so far, and each time it was just as spellbinding. Although, of course, I now know the story like the back of my hand, especially after also seeing the movie a few times (which is completely different from the book, though a good film in its own right)...
