First of all i'm going to be honest. I simply have done fairly little reading over the past week. But i have something else that might get me back into your good books. This week i have decided to try out something new. Because we all know, i'm pretty boring and clicking onto this page each week with either a review or a TBR can be a drag. So i have decided to come up with looking at books which are being turned into movie adaptations.

Of course we have to start with the film which is coming out on the 20th, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1:

I like the idea of how they have used the mockingjay pin in the theatrical posters behind some of the characters. It symbolises quite a lot where the rebellion is finally taking flight and is the beginning of the end. I have always liked the concept of how they have made the pin burn, it also makes me think back to when Katniss and Peeta both had those costumes on fire in the chariots, as well as symbolising their disttrict.

Having two movies for the final installment always gets me mad. It's not like Harry Potter, or even Breaking Dawn i didn't think the Hunger Games could even compete with the amount there is in the plot. Has anyone actually seen how many pages there are? There is hardly any compared to the other franchises- talk about making more to get your money!

Inferno which is coming out in 2015:

Obviously you should already know that i currently own a copy of this book, but i haven't exactly read it at this moment in time. I'm sure by the time that it rolls on round i should have read it. But my only question is, if they have already done Angels and Demons and the Da Vinci code to this date, how come they haven't done the Lost Symbol as it was published before this?

Well i can't believe that i'm actually going to write this in, but because of it's popularity i think it deserves a place on this post (even if i haven't read it!). Here it goes, Fifty Shades of Grey:

I don't think i want to see this. Not because of the fact of the genre but because of what i have heard about the book itself and how it has been called "bad prose". I also heard from somewhere that originally it was a fanfiction for Twilight. To be honest i try to read as little fanfics as possible, otherwise i guess my mind thinks different to how it was meant to be. It doesn't mean that i hate fanfiction because i don't, i know quite a few people who do it and are quite good at it. It is just the fact that my mind can be quite malleable sometimes when it comes to plotlines, then i can't think of how it originally was. Making it extremely difficult if i am reading the same book over again, it just makes it a bit harder, and well imagining the world is completely different. I must say though, getting from Twilight from Fifty Shades of Grey are such different genres, if i wasn't told i don't think i would be able to put two and two together!
I think that i'm going to leave it there for now. I'll probably do this again another time. Maybe in the next coming months? Well i guess i am going to have to have a look out for what will be coming out next!
Until Next Time,

Midsummer's Bottom by Darren Dash

Hello everyone. This week I am going to be reviewing a book which is a little bit more light-hearted and hilarious to the point that chaos ensues. It is based on the work of William Shakespeare, to the point that the original characters such as Puck, Oberon and Titania have roles, but there are new characters which act out the story, but in the way that the originals believe to be the best. However, these new characters do not know anything about this, which makes the twists and turns of chaos to become quite entertaining.

First of all, for those who know of Darren Dash's other pseudonym which deals with children's books should not read this book. The content is for the mature reader, it is clearly shown how it has been written.

I think that the best part about this book is that when starting to read it, having no previous knowledge about the certain Shakespeare's play of A Midsummer Night's Dream, I thought that I would be put off the concept. However, after a few of…

The Gods have spoken! - Mythos by Stephen Fry

I love mythology. That is a fact that many people know in my life. So when I found out that the brilliant mind of Stephen Fry was going to write a book on Greek mythology, I couldn't have been more ecstatic. In three words: perfect bedtime stories.

Did it excel my expectations?

Well, I guess that you could say yeah.

I understand that some people did not like the way that it was written in such simple 'Fry way'. But I found that much more funny.

You see, I find that there is nothing better than drama. In fact, as social beings we all have a certain feel about it. It is something that breathes life within all of us.

You see, you can feel the absolute significance of why a book like this should be read. It brings us back to a time where stories of such marvellous wonders exist. That there is hope out there. That there is a reason why certain events happen as they do.

A reason. That is all we need to keep going on.

So, as I began reading Mythos, it took me back to a time when …

Conditional Love by Cathy Bramley

So hi. Sorry for such a huge period of time where i was absent. There are several reasons as to why that is, personal as well as other big points. Anyway, i'm back and hopefully that means that i will be back for a while, before i may be noticeably absent once again.

Today i have a nice book to come back to this blog. It is called 'Conditional Love' and written by an author from Nottinghamshire called Cathy Bramley.

As you can see the awful picture that i took of this book doesn't really show the homely beauty of the book cover in person. The illustration really identifies what the story is all about - a woman with the aim of getting her dream home. It really shows this with the fact that there is a light on downstairs in the house, a warm hearth.

So because of the fact that somehow i have "connections" with this author, she was very kind in sending various amount of goodies back last year. This included this book, as a signed copy, as well as other books i s…
