Review: The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials Movie!!

tumblr_nch0sdkejS1su9abzo1_500As you all may know The Maze Runner series is one of my favourites and today I watched the movie The Scorch Trials and so I thought I’d do a quick review!!

I’ve been waiting ages for this film to come out after how much I loved The Maze Runner. (Well who wouldn’t Dylan O’Brien)maze-runner-the-scorch-trials-isn-t-your-average-ya-movie-here-s-why-bleh-606078

And so today I took a trip to the cinemas to see the film.scorch-trials-minho-thomas-quote-gif

I really enjoyed the film (although 12A?! I don’t think so, that was scary as hell) and thought it was brilliantly done. The only thing that I have to say is that it’s either been a long time since I read the book and it has completely gone out of my brain, or the film strayed a fair bit from the book. I guess I’ll just have to reread to solve that problem.

I encourage everybody to go and watch this, unless like me, you are a complete wuss and don’t like any kind of horror. Although I made it through simply because Dylan! Please, this one is worth a trip to the cinemas, even if my review is a bit late. There’s still time!!!

Until next time…

Shadowhunters!!!

  
The Mortal Instruments series is among one of my top ever series (following closely behind Harry Potter) and although I thought the film starring Lily Collins and Robert Sheehan was great, it just didn’t live up to my expectations and is most likely why most fans didn’t particularly enjoy it or want a sequel. 

So when it was announced that ABC Family was fetching the series back to our screens in the form a TV series I couldn’t be happier!! Finally a book series in a TV series, what book junkies all over have been calling for. There will be so many more details in the TV series and hopefully should live up to expectations of the fans!!

I can not wait for 2016!!! 

Until next time….

Review: You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day. 

  
  

 The Blurb:

From online entertainment pioneer, actress and ‘queen of the geeks’ Felicia Day, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is a funny, quirky and inspiring memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to Internet stardom and embracing her weirdness to find her place in the world.

My Thoughts:

I discovered Felicia Day when she played the amazing Charlie Bradbury on Supernatural and since then I discovered more about her life by watching and subscribing to her YouTube videos and also by watching The Guild. Felicia is an absolutely magnificent human being and so when I heard she was writing a book I knew it would be physically impossible for me not to buy it. 

Even if you are not a fan of Felicia Day this book is still so worth the read! Felicia is the like the quirky best friend that you never knew you had, but upon reading you will quickly and irrevocably fall in love with her. 

This biggest defining characterstic of her book is that if you are a blogger or thinking of being one or simply if you want a presence on the internet then this is the book to inspire you to get moving and make the most of your originality and weirdness!

I’ve have never been so enthralled by a memoir before and I’ve never wanted to improve myself through the reading of a memoir. Felicia Day does all this a more, reminding you that you’re not the only misfit in the world and even if you were that’s okay!! 

This is most definitely the best book I’ve read all years and I encourage  everyone to give it a read!!

Until next time…

Keep reading xox.

Review: Beneath The Surface by John Hargrove. 

  
The Blurb:

As a senior orca trainer for SeaWorld’s multi-billion-dollar company, John Hargrove has had elite access to some of the most dangerous killer whales in captivity. For over two decades, he worked with 20 different whales on two continents, building intense relationships with these mystical creatures. However, as his understanding of the whales deepened, Hargrove came to doubt that their needs could ever be met in captivity. And after the horrific deaths of two trainers by SeaWorld owned and trained orcas, he was certain that SeaWorld’s wildly popular programs were both detrimental to the whales and increasingly dangerous for trainers. 

Since leaving SeaWorld, Hargrove starred in the award-winning documentary Blackfish. The enormous success of the film and the advocacy movement in which Hargrove is involved has caused an outcry across the nation.  

Beneath the Surface explores the dark corners of orca captivity. Hargrove gives a heartbreaking account of the psychological and physical damage caused by captivity – and contrasts it with orcas’ lives in the wild. His journey is one that humanity has just begun to take – toward the realization that the relationship between the human and animals worlds must be radically rethought. 

My Thoughts:

When I was a child I, much like John Hargrove, dreamed of being an orca trainer; but as I grew older I knew that everything was not right with the most majestic animals this Earth has the honor of housing. John Hargrove had the inside scoop on captivity and finally came to understand all the problems. 

I have read many books slamming SeaWorld for their treatment of the orcas and demanding the parks to be shut down. This is the first book on the subject that has not demanded that and still recognises the other good work that they do, not to mention the fact that the orcas can never be released into the wild and therefore only SeaWorld and other marine mammal parks are capable of looking after them; albeit preferably in sea pens, that offer the orcas a higher quality of life to the tanks of SeaWorld. I have never been so impressed by a book that says here are all the bad things but here are also the good; and I’m so glad that this book, in my opinion, doesn’t encourage radicalists that know nothing about orcas or their natural lifestyles and eco types!

I thoroughly enjoyed following John Hargrove’s story and I believe that if this is a subject that interests you, or if you are in fact one of those radicalists, then please pick up this book as there is so much you can learn about orcas and their natures, both in the wild and in captivity, allowing more sensible decisions about releasing the orcas of SeaWorld into the wild!!

In the end it is all about what is best for the whales, and that is something both myself, John Hargrove and many others around the globe have in common. 

Until next time…

Review: Paper Towns by John Green. 

  
The Blurb:

Quentin Jacobson has always loved Margo from afar. So when she climbs through his window to summon him on an all-night road trip of revenge he cannot help but follow. But the next morning, Q turns up at school and Margo doesn’t. She’s left clues to her disappearance, like a trail of breadcrumbs for Q to follow. 

And everything leads to one unavoidable question: WHO IS THE REAL MARGO?

My Thoughts:

I’ve owned Paper Towns for years after I read The Fault in Our Stars I went on a John Green spree, but then I read Looking for Alaska and I hated it and so I never really decided to read any more of his books. Then a few months ago I read An Abundance of Katherine’s and I really liked that and so thought that I may as well give Paper Towns a try.

I liked Paper Towns but it isn’t a book that I would read over and over again, overall it seemed pretty average and without much thought put into it. 

I found Q to be a very boring character and Margo to be stereotypical and clichéd, which is something I have noticed about the girls that feature in John Green books. 

I do not think this book lived up to hype it received, but again you cannot fault John Green’s writing (just maybe the story). 

Other people may enjoy this book but unfortunately, it just wasn’t for me. Yes, it was a good read; it just wasn’t a ‘wow’ read!!

Until next time…
