Most anticipated movies of 2017

Hey guys!! This is my Top 10 most anticipated movies for this year!!!

*I’ll also put a link to the IMDb page for each movie where you can checkout the trailers, interviews and more!

*The release dates can change from country to country.

10. Power Rangers

Number 10 on my list is the new Power Rangers movie!! The Power Rangers were my childhood heroes. I remember waking up every morning and race to the living room to see an episode from the tv show. I was beyond excited and nervous to know we are getting a new movie! Let’s just hope and see if it’s any good. Bryan Cranston can only make this better. The movie comes out in March! (x)

9. War for the Planet of the Apes

This is the third instalment in the Planet of the Apes movie franchise. I loved the first two movies. I’ve seen them multiple times and they just keep getting more interesting by the minute.  The trailer looks great, and now we have Woody Harrelson’s craziness to join the mix. The movie comes out in July. (x)

8. Thor 3: Ragnarok

The first Marvel movie on this list but certainly not the last. I’m not the biggest Thor fan, but in this movie we’ll finally have Loki again!!!!!!!! And also The Hulk and Benedict’s Doctor Strange. The last Marvel movies have left me completly satisfied and I can’t wait to see what happens in this one. The movie comes out in November. (x)

7. Pitch Perfect 3

A third Pitch Perfect movie may sound too much for many but I am more than excited!!! I love my Bellas, their stories and the humour and concept of these movies. Can’t wait. The movie comes out in December. (x)

6. Spider-Man: Homecoming

I am beyond curious to see this one. I actually liked the Amazing Spider-Man movies. But I agree that the choice regarding thebactors hasn’t been perfect. Toby Maguire was a great Peter Parker but he lacked something that the Spider-Man needed; while Andrew Garfield was an amazing Spider-Man but had that too cool for school skater style, and had a ridiculously sexy demeanor to play Peter Parker. I’m not the only one who thinks this I swear. And from what we’ve seen in Civil War and on the trailer for this movie, Tom Holland seems to have got it all to be the perfect Peter Parker and the Spider-Man. I seriously cannot wait. It comes out in July. (x)

5. Kingsman: The Golden Circle

And we are gonna have a sequel to the FANTASTIC movie that was Kingsman: The Secret Service. I loved the first movie and I’m super excited to see this sequel. Pedro Pascal, Julliane Moore, Jeff Bridges and Halle Berry are also joining the movie! This comes out in September. (x)

4. Logan

I just want to make a 20 pages post about this movie and I haven’t even seen it yet. I am beyond thrilled for Logan. Although I’m also dreading the final outcome and saddened that this is Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine movie. But on a brighter note, HAVE YOU SEEN THE TRAILERS? They are so fucking fantastic and I’ve lost count of the times I’ve already watched them. Can’t wait for this. Logan comes out in March. (x)

3. Beauty and the Beast

And of course Beauty and the Beast would make the top 3 on my list. It is one of my favorites disney movies, and Belle is one of the best disney princesses ever. I love the cast: Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, Ewan McGgregor and Emma Thompson AND Stanley Tucci AND Ian McKellen?! Bring it on. The movie also comes out  in March. (x)

2. Star Wars: Episode VIII

Tammmm tamm tu tum tu tuummmm tammm…. sorry I tried. BUT STAR WARS. YES. Nothing else to say except I want the trailer and I want to see it now! 11 more months. Crying for December it is. (x)

1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

And my most anticipated movie for 2017 is none other than the second volume of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. I am obsessed with the first movie. I’ve seen it more times than I can count now. I love everyhting about the movie, the characters, the story and everything. Also, check the trailer because baby Groot is here to rock your world. I cannot wait to see this. Screams and cries on full despair mode waiting for May. (x)

*Late* Winter/Christmas Book-haul

*I haven’t posted any synopsis that might spoil the rest of the series.

2017-01-15-03.40.08-1.jpg.jpg

.Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: the original screenplay by J.K.Rowling

2016-12-30-04.22.09-3.jpg.jpg“J.K. Rowling’s screenwriting debut is captured in this exciting hardcover edition of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay.

When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt’s fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…”

.Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman.

2017-01-15-03.40.10-1.jpg.jpg

.Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

2017-01-15-03.40.11-2.jpg.jpg“A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect. (…) Enter Anna’s world and follow her rise from “scrappy little nobody” to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page—with an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).”

.More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

“In his twisty, gritty, profoundly moving debut—called “mandatory reading” by the New York Times—Adam Silvera brings to life a charged, dangerous near-future summer in the Bronx.

In the months after his father’s suicide, it’s been tough for 16-year-old Aaron Soto to find happiness again–but he’s still gunning for it. With the support of his girlfriend Genevieve and his overworked mom, he’s slowly remembering what that might feel like. But grief and the smile-shaped scar on his wrist prevent him from forgetting completely.

When Genevieve leaves for a couple of weeks, Aaron spends all his time hanging out with this new guy, Thomas. Aaron’s crew notices, and they’re not exactly thrilled. But Aaron can’t deny the happiness Thomas brings or how Thomas makes him feel safe from himself, despite the tensions their friendship is stirring with his girlfriend and friends. Since Aaron can’t stay away from Thomas or turn off his newfound feelings for him, he considers turning to the Leteo Institute’s revolutionary memory-alteration procedure to straighten himself out, even if it means forgetting who he truly is.

Why does happiness have to be so hard?”

.The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

“Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?”

2017-01-15-03.40.12-1.jpg.jpg

.The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken

2017-01-15-03.40.13-1.jpg.jpg

“When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. She is on the run, desperate to find the only safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of kids who have escaped their own camp. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can’t risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents. When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at having a life worth living.”

.The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater

  ”  2017-01-15-03.40.11-1.jpg.jpg“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”

It is freezing in thechurchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before.”

2016: Reading Year in Review

Hey guys!

I know this comes a tad bit late, but 2016 sucked for me in so many ways I had to take a hiatus from the blog. I took these first 2 weeks of 2017 to rest, and hopefully this year will suck a bit less.

Anyhow, my reading year pretty much sucked. I didn’t read almost anything and barely completed my goodreads goal of 25 books. So it wasn’t hard to choose my top 5:

April – Reading month in review

The last couple of months have been busy ones. I’ve been filled with stuff to do, go and see, and my time for reading hasn’t been much.

That being said, I only read two books, Winter and Stars Above, both by Marissa Meyer. I loved these books to pieces and I cannot wait to read something else from this writer.

My thoughts about the books include spoilers, so read on at your own risk xx

Winter

My rating: 5 Stars

I SHOULD WRITE THIS WHOLE REVIEW IN CAPS BECAUSE THAT’S HOW I FEEL. I NEED MORE.

Yes so, like usual (in this series at least) this will be more of a rant and rambling of my feelings and I’m happy to have you follow along. Anyway, I’ve been putting of this review for weeks, because honestly, I needed a few days to calm my shit down and actually think about the book.

IT WAS GREAT. I LOVED LOVED LOVED IT.

I read Winter incredibly slowly because I was crammed busy and also because I did not want to finish this series. Altough it was a pretty huge book I was never bored, I just wanted more and more and to keep reading straight to the end.
This whole series really was a tremendous ride, I’ll miss reading about these characters and about the world and everything. I was a mess of emotions throughout these books, from beginning to end. But it was a joy.

.Also, no one died. YEYYYYY.
.I cried a whole lot because of Wolf and because of everything he went through. I would have liked a bit more of information about him afterwards his final scene but I was happy nontheless.
.I didn’t care much for Winter and Jacin, but I really warmed up to them in the middle of Winter. And I have to say I really enjoyed Winter’s craziness.
.CRESS AND THORNE MY LOVES.
.THORNE IS THE BEST. I WANT HIM.
.Loved how it all came to an end, and that we actually got to see the aftermath and the complications after Cinder’s victory.
.KAI AND CINDER OH MEEH GOD YES YOU KNOW JUST FEELS I LOVE THEM MY FAVES I CANNOT I JUST WANT MORE LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Stars Above

My Rating: 4 Stars

The Keeper – 4 stars
Glitches – 4 stars
The Queen’s Army – 5 stars
Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky – 4.5 stars
After Sunshine Passes By – 3.5 stars
The Princess and the Guard – 3.5 stars
The Little Android – 4 stars
The Mechanic – 5 stars
Something Old, Something New – 5 stars

Overall I enjoyed these novellas, and I would round up the whole book to 4 stars. I would have given all the stars if it was only based on the last novella. I FREAKING LOVED THAT LAST ONE. IT WAS AMAZING AND EVERYTHING I WANTED AND SCREAMS INTERNALLY AND CRIES JUST I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS. But yes, I wouldn’t mind more novellas about these amazing characters.

April/Birthday Bookhaul

Hey guys!! My birthday was earlier this month so I got some interesting books to show you. As for now, I haven’t read any of the books in this haul so I would love to hear your opinions on them!

*I’ll post the goodreads synopsis for each book, unless they have obvious spoilers or are part of a series and are not the first installment.

13036467_1110060175682732_100070983_o (1)

Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle – “Welcome to Trace Italian, a game of strategy and survival! You may now make your first move. Isolated by a disfiguring injury since the age of 17, Sean Phillips crafts imaginary worlds for strangers to play in. From his small apartment in Southern California, he orchestrates fantastic adventures where possibilities, both dark and bright, open in the boundaries between the real and the imagined. As the creator of Trace Italian – a text-based, roleplaying game played through the mail – Sean guides players from around the world through his intricately imagined terrain, which they navigate and explore, turn by turn, seeking sanctuary in a ravaged, savage future America. Lance and Carrie are high school students from Florida, explorers of the Trace. But when they take their play into the real world, disaster strikes, and Sean is called to account for it. In the process, he is pulled back through time, tunneling toward the moment of his own self-inflicted departure from the world in which most people live.”

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck – “The compelling story of two outsiders striving to find their place in an unforgiving world. Drifters in search of work, George and his simple-minded friend Lennie have nothing in the world except each other and a dream–a dream that one day they will have some land of their own. Eventually they find work on a ranch in California’s Salinas Valley, but their hopes are doomed as Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy, becomes a victim of his own strength.”

The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick – “It’s America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some 20 years earlier the United States lost a war, and is now occupied jointly by Nazi Germany and Japan.”

I was Here by Gayle Forman – “When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.”

Everything, Everything by  Nicola Yoon – My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.”

A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle – “In the debut of literature’s most famous sleuth, a dead man is discovered in a bloodstained room in Brixton. The only clues are a wedding ring, a gold watch, a pocket edition of Boccaccio’s Decameron, and a word scrawled in blood on the wall. With this investigation begins the partnership of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Their search for the murderer uncovers a story of love and revenge-and heralds a franchise of detective mysteries starring the formidable Holmes.”

Mosquitoland by David Arnold – “After the sudden collapse of her family, Mim Malone is dragged from her home in northern Ohio to the “wastelands” of Mississippi, where she lives in a medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland.
So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow travelers along the way. But when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane.
Told in an unforgettable, kaleidoscopic voice, “Mosquitoland” is a modern American odyssey, as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.”

Reality Boy by A.S. King – “Gerald Faust knows exactly when he started feeling angry: the day his mother invited a reality television crew into his five-year-old life. Twelve years later, he’s still haunted by his rage-filled youth—which the entire world got to watch from every imaginable angle—and his anger issues have resulted in violent outbursts, zero friends, and clueless adults dumping him in the special education room at school.
Nothing is ever going to change. No one cares that he’s tried to learn to control himself, and the girl he likes has no idea who he really is. Everyone’s just waiting for him to snap…and he’s starting to feel dangerously close to doing just that.
In this fearless portrayal of a boy on the edge, highly acclaimed Printz Honor author A.S. King explores the desperate reality of a former child “star” who finally breaks free of his anger by creating possibilities he never knew he deserved.”

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare 

 

 

 

Week(s) in review

Hey guys! I haven’t posted for a month because life’s been pretty hectic lately. Between college, studying, my trips home and procrastinating from time to time I haven’t had the time nor patience unfortunately. Anyway, lets do a summed up review of these last 4 weeks.

Firstly let’s talk about movies! The MTV movie awards aired a whole bunch of movie trailers that I was pretty excited about. We finally got our first glimpse at Doctor Strange (x) with Benedict Cumberbatch and I cannot wait to see it. We also have a new trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (x) and I’m beyond excited for this movie!!! Hedwig’s theme anyone? The feels. Both movies come out in November and it cannot come faster.

I’ve continued watching my current TV shows – Grey’s Anatomy, The Flash, OUAT, Criminal Minds,  and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Resumed watching Outlander and Shameless US (don’t know why I ever stopped, this show is life). And I also started some new shows – Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Houdini and Doyle, American Crime Story, Mr. Robot and 11.22.63. Yes I know I don’t have time for blogging but I have time to watch all of these. Figures.

Regarding books, I’ve had a pretty lousy reading month. I read my first required reading for this semester, Heart of Darkness (review), and three novellas from The Lunar Chronicles which were The Little Android, Glitches and The Queen’s Army. Aaaannd… I’VE JUST FINISHED WINTER AND I’M A MESS (review to come).

Also, my 19th birthday was on the 6th of April and I’ll post my birthday bookhaul soon! Exciting books!
