Book to Film Adaptations Rating 

Hey Guys,

Sorry for not updating lately I but last week was my first week of me starting my new job and I don’t have set days on when I work so I may not be blogging every day like I did before.

I have recently watched:

I absolutely adore it the actor who plays Emma is a favourite of mine you may know Gwyneth Paltrow from (IronMan, Glee, Shallow Hal.) She was the best Emma out of all the movie adapations of this book by Jane Austen and Mr knightly Aww he’s honest even if it hurts your feelings a great friend and fictional boyfriend material over all this was a 6.5/5 stars and I can’t wait to read the book.

My mum already had this movie and let me borrow it there are two versions but Billie Piper was not only amazing has Rose Tyler in Doctor who but was wonderful has Fanny Price I felt so sad for Fanny but I loved the ending alot Edmund was a great character but he wasn’t not Mr Darcy or Mr knightly it was interesting to have a film about a religious guy character I did think he’s sudden interested in Fanny did seem like insta love which I normally dislike but I did love when he was running down the hall wit her and grabbing her arm when she went to walk off overall I rated this a 5.5/5 stars.

I am planning to rate the second book adaptation of Mansfield Park also I may do a movies review for the movies I just Rated I can’t remember what really happened I am hoping to post my September Wrap up and October TBR which is the month of my birthday if you have any book recomendations then please do let me know in the comments below.

Happy Reading

The Secret Series 1-2 books By Jessica Soresen

Hey Guys,

I am currently since Monday been doing a Gilmore Girls Marathon and drinking lots of coffee I am currently on season 2 episode 7 and on my sixth cup of coffee I know too much caffeine which is bad for my migraines but that won’t stop me this post is my book update, book reviews and book recommendations wow I know.

I have only read two books which I have reread this month I absolutely love Ella and Micha romance they adore each other it’s a kind of romance every women dreams of I rated them 6.5/5 stars if you haven’t read this NA (New Adult book) then I highly recommend it but I don’t if you are younger than 18+ plus I don’t want to get blamed for it.

This is is about Ella and Micha they have been friends since they were 8 and started it like each other when they were 14/15 years old and made an oath that they would never leave Star Grove and create a life for themselves until they hit 16/17 and Ella ran away after standing on a bridge nearly about to jump until Micha stops her and they kiss and Ella leaves Star Grove and goes to Vegas and leaves her Rule breaker and Fiery attitude behind her and becomes someone who follows the rules until but then it hits the summer holiday and has no where to go but home.                                                                       Ella has fears that as soon as she goes home that everything she has worked to bury will surface when especially with Micha right next door making her remember the best parts of her past,

thats all I am going to say The blurb for the first book is better but I am going into more detail so you can see why I love this book The Secret of Ella And Micha blurb here and The Forever Ella and Micha blurb here I have also done a review for the second book I am planning to review the book at some point Review: The forever or Ella and Micha book 2: By Jessica Sorensen 

I am planning to read next:

I decided to pause the other books I have been reading because this is going to surprise you Jeanie (which is Jen) has given me a reading slump so I went to my go to book that gets me out of my reading slump which is this book series before you ask I will be continue reading the other books as soon as I have finish the series which in my case will be soon.

 

So this is the order of what book I am going to read them I know it looks like lots of books and surprising on how many books based on four characters but if it like the first two books then I am excited.

Let me know below if you want me to make more of these posts and also what do you think of Jessica Sorensen books and what are you currently reading I am curious.

BOOK UPDATE AND RANT

Hey Guys,

For those who have me on Goodreads I am sorry for the bloody word I was very mad with Jen I was enjoying a nice read Marked By P.C. Cast which I started reading after talking to Tyr Carter who blog is amazing so please do check out and follow this amazing blog then all of a sudden I went on my blog to see books added to my currently reading I really regret letting Jen have access my Goodreads and making me mess up my TBR but I’m letting it slide this time because I broke my read-a-long anyway enough with my rant and getting on to my reading update.

So I am currently reading?

 

Jenny may have won on me reading Lady Susan and Romancing the Duke which I am not reading until I have Finished Marked because I am really enjoying the book and then I am going to read Lady Susan due it being 80 pages I wouldn’t recommend reading Romancing the Duke if you are younger than 18+ since it’s NA (New Adult).

 

What I am planning to read after?

I want to read Jane Austen books after reading Pride and Prejudice so Jen recommend after giving me a pile of her books to read so I am going to read Persuasion and Lady Susan the only book I own are A Court Of wings And Ruin I may have took Jen’s Marked of her self and said she owed me but she let me keep it since she wasn’t a big fan.

Sorry about the Rant was very mad at Jen for making me brake my TBR again I am currently answering some of my Q and As Thanks for giving me books and non book questions like embarrassing questions so thanks haha not personal personal questions please because I won’t answer them which I think I have mentioned if not then sorry I didn’t.

What I have read so far this month is:

wp-image--703093563 Has in my review I rated this 6.5/5 stars it’s a classical novel it begins with the story with Noah Calhoun how has returned from the second war and is restoring a plantation home like he planned to do fourteen years ago still haunted by the girl he meet at that time he feel inloved with her and is unwilling to forget the summer they spend together Noah is fine with just having them memories of her until she shows up at his door to see him once more…. Review: The Notebook  (The Notebook #1) By Nicolas Sparks 

wp-image-815527927If you guys are new to my blog you may not know that I am a huge fan of Abbi Glines Rosemary Beach Series it was the second NA series I ever read the first book was review: Fallen too Far this is the second book in the spin-off series Sea Breeze meets rosemary Beach and also is a spin-off Sea Breeze which I haven’t yet read (SPOILERS I know) any way this series is based on the Main characters of Rosemary Beach series children and other people how live in Sea Breeze.

Anyway I absolutely loved this book and technically I didn’t break my read-a-long because It’s got green and the sun which is yellow but if it doesn’t blame BooksloveJenny how bought me the book today quick reader I know I am planning to do a review fingers crossed soon I know people may disagree with me but I am glad Lila ended up with Cruz instead of Eli I feel sorry that he lost a chance with two girls but he was able to move on anyway the discussion will continue on my review I can’t wait for the third book (SIGH) makes me want to read The Rosemary Beach series then Sea Breeze then the spin-off’s but I am fighting the urge to because I want to read my TBR Pile and not break the challenge luckily Jen’s stopping me from doing it I hope.

Books I may be reading next:

Yes I may have change my reading plan.

 

I just want to finish The Three Musketeers I am loving the book so far favourite character so far has to be Madame Bonacieux and I will not be reviewing this book due to the fact I was asked not to by Jen saying that there are other books that people have requested me to review like Love Rosie, The Wedding etc. so unfortunately I will not being reviewing this anytime soon,

wp-image--1037985850This book is different from the others because this is based on there little sister Dolly Jennings and believe me they left her story last for a reason since she was sixteen she has wanted no one but Brandon Knight when she has grown up now and I have a feeling she is going to cause him nothing but trouble.

 

wp-image--485503685This is the fourth book in the wait for me series which I can’t wait to read after the two books above this book is based on Roxy and officer Reece when Roxy gets threatening calls she has to go to the one person she least she wants to talk to Reece doesn’t think it’s really a threat but helps her anyway to ensure she is safe.

 

wp-image-1258997565  I am planning to read this I don’t know what its about I like guessing who the characters are going to be and Jen tells me if I am right.

 

That’s what I have planed to read so far the next person to be posting will be Jenny she will have a different into and will talk about herself a little then will be interviewing me while typing she will be posting it on her blog if she makes one I don’t know what her questions are which are mean’t to be book related but knowing her it’s not (laughs).

August (TBR 2017)

Hey guys,

 

I am meant to be waking up early to talk to my friend but I can’t sleep big mistake drinking coffee at midnight played call of duty for an hour to try and full asleep but I was to wired and nearly reaching level 50 I know eye roll then decided to do my TBR since I forgot to do it earlier also if you have any advice on how to fall asleep then please let me know in the comments below.

Also I want to thank you guys for liking my blog due to you guys liking my posts I recently received from WordPress:

Screenshot_2017-07-31-21-17-32-1So thank you 🙂

So I have 11 books on my currently reading pile and 225 books to read the reason why I am not reading the 11 books yet is because I have to read other books I rather promised to review and haven’t gotten round to reading yet or authors have ask me to read there books and I have been trying to get round to but just want to reread my favourites so I am going to try reading books I haven’t read and attempt to review them might not to be able but enough talking more doing my TBR.

YA Reads:

 

 

Screenshot_2017-08-01-01-19-58-1I was contacted by Elle Strauss on my goodreads if I anted a free e-book which was this one since I like the ruby red series unfortunately I already had this in my kindle so I offered to review this book on my goodreads and blog,

A great blogger and friend Marrill Collins  was reading both P.S I Like You and Raven boys and I was also recommended to read these by Marrill which I also promised to review I highly recommend check out her amazing blog if you like YA, Fantasy and contemporary.

I also chose to read Ignite because I saw the spin-off series frost and I knew I had to read this series because it sounds so interesting.

I have been meaning to read shadows since 10th July 2016 the reason why I know the exact date is because I put it on my Instagram the same day I knew I was planning to read it I tried reading it the next day but I stopped because there was other books I wanted to read.

Katherine and Elizabeth Corr they are absolute amazing and I am going to read this second book now because …. THERE IS A THRID BOOK WOW I know right exciting I can’t wait I am inlove with this series.

 

NA Reads:

 

I was asked if I could separate my YA and NA so that people knew what I am recommending plus some people can skip it if they dislike this genre which is understandable so I have just so you guys know some new adult are kind of like a court of wings and fury and they can be a lot more descriptive its about finding the right book to get you into the series.

 

Out of the shadows is a guilty pleasure and so is the second book which I maybe rereading also I may reread the Dive Stage Series because lots of people are talking about the series with me and I may be impatient to read it I also chose Thoughtless because its rock star book and thanks to Dive Stage Series as gotten me into rock star books.

I was recommended No regrets by a friend on my Instagram and the other book Husband Fur Hire I saw qwendowlyn reading methods an amazing booktuber was reading this because it had ironic title so I decided to join in on it because its a great idea

 

Anyway its 3:00 in the morning and i am still wide awake and now I am going to try playing games like Phil from Dan And Phil did fingers crossed I can go asleep so let me know below what books are you excited to read for August also if you have read any of these books let me know in the comments below what you think.

Thriteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher 

Blurb: 

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.

On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out how he made the list.

Question:A book about a major world event (fiction or non – fiction?)

Wolf by Wolf ( Wolf by Wolf #1 ) by Ryan Graudin 


Blurb:

Her story begins on a train.

The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule. To commemorate their Great Victory, Hitler and Emperor Hirohito host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The victor is awarded an audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor’s Ball in Tokyo.
Yael, a former death camp prisoner, has witnessed too much suffering, and the five wolves tattooed on her arm are a constant reminder of the loved ones she lost. The resistance has given Yael one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year’s only female racer, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele twin’s brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael’s every move.
But as Yael grows closer to the other competitors, can she bring herself to be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and complete her mission?

Question:

I’d tell you I love you but then I’d have to kill you (Gallagher Girls, #1) by Ally Cater


Blurb:

Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school-that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but it’s really a school for spies. Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks she’s an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real “pavement artist”-but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her? 

Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she’s on her most dangerous mission-falling in love.

Protecting Shaylee ( The Fae Guard #1) by Elle Christensen 


Blurb:

As a child, I believed in the fairytales my father told me. 

Until he was gone and with him, that belief. 

As a girl, I believed in the friendship and protection of Aden. 

He made me begin to believe again. 

As a woman, I believed in the possibility of love and passion between myself and Aden. 

Until he was gone and with him, my belief in magic and happy endings. 

Aden 
When she was a child, I was tasked with her protection. 
As a girl, I became her friend. 

As a woman, I could no longer see the child I knew and was forced to fight a growing attraction. 

Unable to lie and unable to tell the truth, I left. 

Now I’ve returned to give the knowledge I couldn’t before, that she is half Fae. 

The darkness is stalking her and I am desperate to teach her what she needs to know to protect herself. 

And determined to make her mine.
Incarnate (newsouls #1) by Jody meow


Blurb:

New soul

Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.
No soul
Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?
Heart

Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?
Etiquette and Espionage (Finishing School #1 ) by Gail Carriger 

Blurb:

It’s one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It’s quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to Finishing School.

Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is a great trial to her poor mother. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper manners–and the family can only hope that company never sees her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. So she enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. 
But Sophronia soon realizes the school is not quite what her mother might have hoped. At Mademoiselle Geraldine’s, young ladies learn to finish…everything. Certainly, they learn the fine arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but they also learn to deal out death, diversion, and espionage–in the politest possible ways, of course. Sophronia and her friends are in for a rousing first year’s education.
Naturals ( Naturals #1) Jennifer Lynn Barnes


Blurb: 

Seventeen-year-old Cassie is a natural at reading people. Piecing together the tiniest details, she can tell you who you are and what you want. But it’s not a skill that she’s ever taken seriously. That is, until the FBI come knocking: they’ve begun a classified program that uses exceptional teenagers to crack infamous cold cases, and they need Cassie.

What Cassie doesn’t realize is that there’s more at risk than a few unsolved homicides—especially when she’s sent to live with a group of teens whose gifts are as unusual as her own. Sarcastic, privileged Michael has a knack for reading emotions, which he uses to get inside Cassie’s head—and under her skin. Brooding Dean shares Cassie’s gift for profiling, but keeps her at arm’s length.
Soon, it becomes clear that no one in the Naturals program is what they seem. And when a new killer strikes, danger looms closer than Cassie could ever have imagined. Caught in a lethal game of cat and mouse with a killer, the Naturals are going to have to use all of their gifts just to survive.

Witch finder by Ruth Warburton 


Blurb:

London, 1880, and eighteen-year-old Luke Lexton is about to endure his initiation into the Malleus Maleficorum – the secretive brotherhood devoted to hunting witches, and the organisation that will help Luke take revenge on the witch who murdered his parents. His final test is to pick a name at random from the Book of Witches, a name he must track down and kill within a month, or face death himself. 

Luke picks out sixteen-year-old Rosa Greenwood, a witch-girl living in rapidly fading grandeur on the west side of town. She’s the last bargaining chip in her family’s struggle to avoid bankruptcy and is about to be married off to the handsome, cruel, grotesquely rich Sebastian Knyvet – a powerful member of the Ealdwitan.
As Rosa and Luke get to know each other, Luke realises it will be impossible for him to kill Rosa, just as Rosa knows she will bring disgrace on her family if she does not marry Knyvet. But Knyvet is hiding dark secrets – including the key which will unlock the mystery of Luke’s murdered parents. Torn between appeasing their elders and their love for each other, Rosa and Luke must each make their choice between life and death.
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand 

Blurb:

The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.

At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren’t for Jane to worry about. Jane is about to become the Queen of England.
