Trailer Thoughts: Everything, Everything

So I finally watched the Everything, Everything trailer and I thought I would share my thoughts. First, I think it’s important to mention that I HAVE NOT read the book. So these thoughts are just from the trailer alone.

everything_everythingI absolutely adore this trailer. It seems like it’s going to be such a cute, yet emotional movie! From what I’ve heard, it gives away a lot from the book? As I said, I haven’t read the book, so I can’t really say. I can definitely say that after watching this trailer, I really want to read the book. So here’s hoping my library has it in!

I thought the music in this trailer was great, and fit really well! But what I think is the most important thing are the actors. The casting for this movie seems fantastic. Just from this trailer you can tell that the two leads have such amazing chemistry together. I really can’t wait to see this movie. Until then, I definitely plan on picking up the book.

What are your thoughts? I’d really love to hear from those who have read the book? Does it seem like it’ll be a good adaptation?

Book Review || Saga Volume 5

Title- Saga25451555
Author- Brian K. Vaughan
Pages- 152
Rating-  4 out of 5
Companion/Sequel/Other- 5th Volume

Marko as aligned himself with Prince IV, as both of them try to find there families. It’s a very uneasy alliance as they both seem to hate each other. However, when you have a common goal you try and work together. I really enjoyed there arc together. Mainly because we got to see Marko, and Ghus(whom I adore). We got to see Marko high as all hell, and get a view into his past.

Alana is with Klara, as they’re being kept by Dengo who also has the kidnapped Princeling and Hazel. He has called the Revolution to where they were to make a deal with them. Although nothing goes as planned and all hell breaks loose!

We also follow Gwtumblr_ncbd1dtkcz1tv4k5po1_500endolyn, Sophie, Lying Cat, The Brand, searching for a cure to save The Will! Trust me when I say, shit gets really weird in this storyline!

Ohhhhh and I just have one thing to say….Dragon jizz….Dragon freakin jizz. That is all.

As always this story has beautiful artwork, and amazing writing. The humor is on point, and the characters are wonderful! Throughout the whole story your so invested and just needing to know what happens next. As always, we are left on a cliffhanger, and I can’t wait to read the next volume!

 

Back into Reading

Hey there!

It has been awhile since I’ve posted anything on here. I’m sorry agiphybout that. I’ve kind of been in a weird mood these last few months, and haven’t felt like reading anything. This surely hasn’t been the first time this has happened, and it won’t be the last. However, I’ve been feeling like getting out of this mood, and I need some recommendations to help me. So let me know what you have been reading and loving lately!

So what have I been doing recently? Well at the end of August I started watching Battlestar Galacticbattlestar_galactica_introa(2003 version), and in September I finished it. I was hesitant to start this show because I honestly didn’t think I would like it. I’m so glad to say that I was completely wrong. I absolutely LOVED this show. It was everything you could want in a television show and more! I’m thinking about doing a Why I Love: Battelstar Galactica post so I can share all my love for it there.

Top Ten Tuesday || Books I HAD to have, but still have yet to read!

For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!

This week’s topic: Freebie Week!

 

  1. A Game of Thrones– I bought the box set of the first four books, and of course they’re still sitting on my shelf. I haven’t watched the show either.
  2. Looking for Alaska- This book has been on my shelf for so long. It was my first John Green book I bought, but will be one of the last of his books to read.
  3. Gone Girl- I bought this because I wanted to see the movie. I have yet to read or see the movie.
  4. Allegiant- I tried to read this book twice already and I have trouble getting into it. I’m thinking about giving it one more chance and then I’m just going to say NO!
  5. Throne of Glass- Everyone is talking about this book. I bought this for my nook when the fourth book was about to be released, and I still haven’t read it.
  6. Under the Dome- This is another one I got for my ereader, and have yet to read it. I figured it would be easier and less intimidating to read this if it was on my Nook. I really enjoyed the show…at least the first 2 seasons of it!

Book Review || The 5th Wave

Title- The 5th Wave16101128
Author- Rick Yancey
Pages- 457
Rating-  4 out of 5
Companion/Sequel/Other- 1st book!

This will contain SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS! This was my first Rick Yancy read, and I’m glad hat I picked this one! This book starts off with the others ship landing on earth. Everything was quite for ten days. After the tenth day…all hell broke loose.

So I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this book. I knew it was about aliens and an invasion, but that’s all I knew. I really loved this take on the story. The waves and different stages of attack. I found myself wanting to keep reading, because I wanted to know what was going to happen. I could say it was the characters, which in some part it was. But.i really think it was Rick Yancey’s writing. There’s something about his writing that keep me invested!

The characters were fantastic. Going into this, I had NO IDEA this was told in different perspectives. Here I am reading from Cassie’s perspective, and then all of sudden it’s talking about someone being called Zombie. I was like what the hell? Afterward, it’s easy to differentiate whose point of view! My favorite to rawread from is Ben. I found his story to be the one that I was most invested in!

Cassie is such a strong, sarcastic and funny character! It was great to read from her and get her point of view of the invasion. We follow Cassie as she tries to get to her brother Sammy who gets taken to Wright Patterson(Camp Haven) a supposed safe zone! She goes through so much on the way including meeting Evan, the man who shoots and saves her!

Evan is cool, and very bad-ass, but also creepy in my opinion. When I was reading it I just found some of the things he did and said to be creepy. I like him as a character, but I’m hoping we get to read more from his perspective in the next book! Maybe I won’t find him to be as creepy!

Ben is my favorite! He’s strong, loyal and he makes a good leader. I loved his relationship with Nugget(Sammy). It was so cute! I loved that he went back for Team-Badass-3-the-vampire-diaries-tv-show-30723089-500-333Nugget when he found out the truth, and went back for Cassie at the end when he could’ve easily left her.

Speaking of the ending, it was my favorite part of this whole book! I loved how we were reading from the different perspectives and then it all comes together: Cassie, Ben, Evan, and Nugget(Sam). The ending had me pulled in, and Cassie, Ben and Evan make a hell of a team! I wouldn’t want to be on the bad side of them!

June TBR

Now, I normally don’t make TBRs. It’s not because I don’t like them, because I always LOVE seeing what other people want to read. I don’t normally do these because I NEVER, EVER stick to them. However, I really want to get back into reading this month. I haven’t read anything since February. I plan to set aside a few books that I REALLY want to get to, and will hopefully be able to fly through this month. I don’t plan on getting to all these this month, but that would be amazing if I did!

  1. Sweet Hope- Tillie Cole
  2. Lady Midnight- Cassandra Clare
  3. We Were Liars- E. Lockhart
  4. The Choice- Nicholas Sparks
  5. A Court of Thorns and Roses- Sarah J. Maas
  6. The 5th Wave- Rick Yancey
