Ahhh, it’s been nice to settle back into the routine of my blog. Did I mention how much I missed it? I did? Oh well, you know what? I don’t care! I missed it sooo MUCH!
Ahem! So, I just got back from watching Star Wars: The force awakens. Amazing film. If you haven’t seen it yet, what is wrong with you?!
I watched it in 3D and I can confirm that I’m not a fan of 3D. It’s really distracting, instead of enhancing the film it takes away. I’m really glad I watched it in 2D first. I’ve come away with eye ache and a headache.
Anyway, you’ll have noticed that I’ve been watch lots of superhero films recently. I’ll be continuing in this vein, with a few others to mix it up. I’ve realized how incredibly excited I am for Deadpool to come out.
I mean, I was excited, but I didn’t realize how hyped up I was. I recently saw a trailer. I tend to avoid them because I worry about spoilers, but I was in the cinema and went in too early, so it was unavoidable. It was AMAZING! It looks like a brilliant film. I’m really hoping I’ve not set my hopes too high.
Now that I’ve finished fangirling over a film that comes out in FEBURARY, a whole MONTH away. Let’s get onto what’s happening this week.
For one, Creed will be out this week. Friday to be exact. I’ve heard good things from those who went to the unlimited screening so I’m expecting to be impressed.
You’ll be getting a review of The amazing spiderman on Monday to continue the unofficial superhero theme we’ve got going. I also plan to watch In the heart of the sea at some point this week too.
As for books!
I’ll be reviewing The Spook’s Apprentice by Joseph Delaney and Never let me sleep by Jennifer Brozek. There’s also some new releases coming out soon that I plan to read.
If any of you are on my goodreads you’ll have noticed, (or not), that I’ve quite a few books that have films being released soon.
I plan to review them a few weeks before the films come out. Hopefully, they’re excellent and I can recommend you read them. A few of those books are:
The 5th wave by Rick Yancey – A young adult post apocalyptic novel. From the description it looks good, although I’m a little worried there’s going to be romance that is often found in young adult dystopian kinds of books.
Pride and prejudice and zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith – I think it’s pretty self explanatory. 😉
The BFG by Roald Dahl – I adored Roald Dahl as a child and have fond memories of him so I can’t wait to re-read one. It’s been too long.
Through the looking glass by Lewis Carroll – I’ve read the first Alice in wonderland book and I liked it well enough that I want to read the second.
A monster calls by Patrick Ness – I’m not quite sure what this is about, but I’m really intrigued and expecting a complex story.
The girl on the train by Paula Hawkins – A psychological thriller. It has a fascinating plot that I’m looking forward to delving into.
Fantastic beasts and where to find them by JK Rowling – I haven’t read JK Rowling since the Harry Potter series and I haven’t read them since they came out.
The HP series is magical for me because reading is a solitary activity and yet each time one came out, it felt as if we were reading them together. I’m looking forward to coming back to the world.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransome Riggs – The blurb for this book is amazing. I am so looking forward to reading this! Spooky paranormal history.
Well that’s all from me. Until next week! Hope you enjoy the reviews!
