Blogoween #12 (Top 5 non-horror halloween movies/tv-shows)

Hey Guy’s I’m back! And it’s Halloween!!! Sadly I didn’t get to 13 post (for blogoween) but hey I tried my best anyway for today’s prompt I’m gonna list my top 5 non-horror but Halloween movies and shows.

  1. The Nightmare Before Christmas

I love this movie so much. I’m always so confused if it’s a Christmas or a Halloween movie. But either way I think it’s a Halloween classic.

2. The chilling adventures of Sabrina

This is a new show that Netflix recently added for Halloween, I’m not done watching it but it’s pretty good so far.

3. Harry Potter and the philosophers stone

I had no idea some people considered this a Halloween movie but I’ll take any opportunity to watch Harry Potter.

4. Stranger Things

I love Stranger Things, I have to confessed I haven’t finished it but I still love it. Technically this isn’t Halloween related but I think it’s a really “eerie” show and fits in.

5. The Addams family

And for last I have to go with a classic “The Addams Family”.


Well those are my top 5 non-horror movies/shows. I hope everyone had a good Halloween.

Happy Reading

Blogoween #6 (Shapeshifter)

via Shapeshifter

Yayy! It’s almost Halloween and if you have seen my post you’ll know that I love Halloween, I might be my favourite holiday. The best part of Halloween is costumes and that’s what this post is all about, basically you have to let me know of some characters that you would like to dress up as.


 

  1. NEWT SCAMANDER

Newt-Meeting-Harry-1200x675

I love Newt Scamander he is adorable and he’s my favourite character in Fantastic Beast, I think being newt is a super cool costume, its kinda hard to pull off (because of the coat) but an awesome costume. it’s a bit harder to do 

 


 

2. KELL MARESH

ADSOM_CE_Kell_Maresh_by_Lesya

 

I feel like this could be pretty simple, I put this on here because I love his coat, I mean wouldn’t be awesome that you had 1 coat the could book like 100? You would most probably need red hair which I don’t have  but you could just get a wig.

 

 

 


 

3. KATNISS EVERDEEN

Hunger-Games-Movie-Katniss-Everdeen-Jacket-1-450x600

This is a pretty easy costume, you just wear leather and a black shirt/pants, of course the hard part of this costume is the bow but you could most probably find one at a Halloween store, and of course you can’t forget the classic mocking jay pin.

 

 

 

 


 

Well I can’t think of any other ones so that’s all for today,

Do you dress up for Halloween?

What are you’re favourite bookish costumes?

Blogoween #3 (5 Characters that I’d Want During the Zombie Apocalypse)

Hey guys I’m back for my 3rd Blogoween prompt. Todays prompt is “They got my back” so in summary you have to pick 5 characters that you would want during the zombie apocalypse. I’m quite excited for this prompt, I have a few ideas but I’ll see who I pick in the end.


 

  1.  Guns/Crossbow Expert: 

Ohhhh that’s a tough one…I’m thinking maybe Katniss Everdeen (I just rewatched the Hunger Games). Yeah I would choose Katniss cause she survived the hunger Games twice (I think) I read it a long time ago. I would probably drag Peeta with us.

 

2. Knives expert  

Okay so I have been debating this, I have two options 1. Lola from Ace of Shades or 2. Inej from Six of Crows. Cause I love Lola she is one of my favourite characters in Ace of Shades…who am I kidding I love them allll!!!! now I want to reread the book. Anyway I’d brin the both of them?? No really i cant choose, I’ll just bring the both of them.

 

3. Hunter & Forager

It took me a while to think of a character but I’ve decided upon Hermione from Harry Potter. She’s not known for hunting but I bet she would know useful information about everything. Also she’s a wizard so she can be really useful

 

4. The Engineer

I have a few people, either David from the Shadow and Bone trilogy because he is l a genius and can make super metal, or Emika from Warcross so she could probably program anything. Yeah that’s all that I can think of at the moment.

 

5. The Doctor

For the doctor I decided to choose Nina Zenik from the SoC duology, She is a heartender and has a few healing powers, also she is badass and can help takeout any enemies.


5 Characters that I’d Want During the Zombie Apocalypse 

Well there you have it. I may have chosen more than 5 but I tried my best, i’m quite confident in my team.

Who would you want to be in the apocalypse with?

Happy Reading

Top Four Tuesday

Hey guys today I’m gonna be talking about book to movie adaptations. I have to say I havent seen a lot of them but I’m gonna try my best.

 

  1. Love Simon — Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

download (10)


I LOVED this movie. I think this is a great example of an amazing book to movie adaptation. They did change a few things which bothered me a bit. But still you have to cut some things when you make a movie.


*SPOILERS*

When I read the book I was 100% percent sure that Leah never liked Simon. But I saw the movie and was immediately confused. I then read Leah On the Offbeat and it might hint that she did like him. Anyway I’m really confuse if in anyone  knows what happened there please let me know in the comments.

*OVER*

Anyway all in all I loved the movie. It even had some P!ATD and Harry Potter refences in there which I loved.

 

2. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

download (11)

I was very excited for this movie. I watched it once and didn’t like it, I then re-watched it and fell in love. I have to say I enjoyed the book way more. I felt the book was very good it wasnt just another typical girl falls in love story. It still was, but there were all the other themes like coming of age and how she managed without a mother. Which the movie tried to show but in the end it very centered around the love story which makes sense cause in the end that’s what it’s about. I still loved it

 

 

 

 

3. Harry Potter (1-7) by J.K Rowling

download (12)

 

I could’t do this without mentioning Harry Potter. Technically it should be first or second but whatever, I love the Harry Potter movies. I think they really try to include everything and I loved that. I did not like that they made characters like Ginny very basic but they tried their best. My favourite movie has to be the 4th one. I don’t know why, but  yeah I think this one is pretty self explanatory.

 

 

 

 

4. The Book Theif by Markus Zusak

download (13)

I LOVE THIS BOOK. This book got me into reading. I think its amazing and If you havent read it (WELL… READ ITT!). I saw the movie a while ago but by what I remember I really liked it. It captured the nostalgia and sadness of this story. I don’t want to say more because of spoilers but I was left in tears.

 

 

 

 


And that completes Top Four Tuesday. I hope you liked my selection. There are many other good book to movie adaptations. and as I said I havent read/watched them all. What is your favourite book to movie adoption?

What should I read next?

Hey guys didn’t really know what to post, I just finished “The loneliest girl in the universe” ( I will put up a review soon) and I don’t know what to read next so I’m writing this to hopefully get some inspiration.

So I’m just gonna put list some of the books that I might feel like reading with their synopsis.

  1. The Case For Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro

image

The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited  Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. There’s a tense energy from the moment they meet, but when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances,  Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance.They are being framed for murder. *Synopsis for the first book A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE

I read the first book in this series and loved it. Then i listened to the second book and didn’t love it as much. I got my friend into this book and now she says that i have to read it because its amazing and to be quite frank i do want to read it.

2. The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily X.R Pan

Image result for the astonishing color of afterLeigh Chen Sanders is absolutely certain about one thing: When her mother died by suicide, she turned into a bird.
Leigh, who is half Asian and half white, travels to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents for the first time. There, she is determined to find her mother, the bird. In her search, she winds up chasing after ghosts, uncovering family secrets, and forging a new relationship with her grandparents. And as she grieves, she must try to reconcile the fact that on the same day she kissed her best friend and longtime secret crush, Axel, her mother was taking her own life.

I have heard amazing reviews for this book and it sounds amazing. I originally say a review on A CLOCKWORK READER channel. I really want to read this book but it’s really long and I don’t have so much time now a days.

3. The Wicker King by K. Ancrum

Image result for the wicker kingWhen August learns that his best friend, Jack, shows signs of degenerative hallucinatory disorder, he is determined to help Jack cope. Jack’s vivid and long-term visions take the form of an elaborate fantasy world layered over our own—a world ruled by the Wicker King. As Jack leads them on a quest to fulfill a dark prophecy in this alternate world, even August begins to question what is real or notNo one expects a princess to be brutal. 

August and Jack struggle to keep afloat as they teeter between fantasy and their own emotions. In the end, each must choose his own truth

I have been wanting to read this book for over a year and I haven’t picked it up. It sound so amazing and PAPERFURY loves this book and the review’s for this book all sound so amazing.

4. And I Darken By Kiersten White

No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwlya likes it that way. Ever since she and her gentle younger brother, Radu, were wrenched from their homeland of Wallachia and abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman courts, Lada has known that being ruthless is the key to survival. An unseen sword hovering over their every move. Lada despises the Ottomans and bides her time, planning her vengeance for the day when she can return to Wallachia and claim her birthright. When they meet Mehmed, the defiant and lonely son of the sultan, Radu feels that he’s made a true friend—and Lada wonders if she’s finally found someone worthy of her passion. But Mehmed is heir to the very empire that Lada has sworn to fight against. Together, Lada, Radu, and Mehmed form a triangle that strains the bonds of love and loyalty.

This book sounds so amazing. I love historical fiction. But I’m debating whether I should read it because its fantasy and im not really in a fantasy mood at the moment


So this is the end of the wierd post. I think I might end up reading The wicker King but I’m not sure. If you have any opinion on what I should read next, in this list or not comment down below.

Happy Reading

Audiobooks

Audiobooks do you like them yes? or no?

Personally yes I love audiobooks , I think that they are a great way to get into more books that you don’t own or just don’t feel like physically reading . Some people don’t like audiobooks because of the  narration or because of the price. True these are all valid points but for the narrators…yes there are bad narrators. But most of them are pretty good but some are 100% for sure  better than others.

For the price issue I actually think this is a big problem because not every library has audiobooks. You can either get them though your local library with an app called Overdrive, If you just want to try audiobooks you can always get free trials with Audible, Scribd and I think Ibooks. I’ve tried all of these options and I think Scribd is  the best for me, It offers free ebooks and free audiobooks for only 11$ a month. Which is pretty cheap for audiobooks.

How did I get into Audiobooks?

Thats actually a funny story cause my friend had been listening to audiobooks for the longest of time but I never really tought about it myself until 2 years later when I started Bookstagram and I saw all these people listening to audiobooks and it gave me the idea to start listening to them. So I asked around and found a few apps and now I listen to audiobooks almost every day.


BEST AUDIOBOOKS

  1. Harry Potter

HarryImage result for harry potter audiobooky Potter is actually the first audiobook I ever listened too. I hadn’t read the series in a looonggg time and I didn’t own the books so I came up with this.

 

The narrator for this book is amazing he expresses all the characters beautify really recommend this audiobook. 5/5

 


 

2.  Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

download (7)

 

I really liked this book. I had just seen it in one of my favourite booktubers video recommending it, and I saw it so like why not? Well I loved it also it had great LGBTQ+ representation which is always a bonus

5/5 Love the narration totally recommend.

 

 

 


3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

download (6)

 

I’m currently reading this book and I’m loving the audiobook. I was getting a bit bored with the book so I tried this and loved it.

It’s the same narrator as HP so just check out his stuff (Jim Dale). I love the flair of magic in the story and the whimsical-ness. 5/5


 

4. The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater

download (8)

I Love this series I find its so cute but love the paranormal theme going on. I only read this book. I have to read the rest of the series but still love it.

Many people have different opinions on this audiobook. Cause its spoken with a southern accent wich I love cause its real and that’s wear it takes place. At first I didn’t really like it but In in the end I loved this audiobook. 4/5

 

 


 

Well thats my opinion on audiobooks what’s yours?
