Book Review: November 9 by Colleen Hoover


Colleen Hoover is an author that I’ve heard a lot about and I’ve never read one of her books before. November 9 was the book I heard the most about and I decided to finally read the Kindle edition that I had. I really enjoyed this book. The story of Fallon and Ben’s love story was so much fun to read.

Book Review – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by Alexander Freed


I really enjoyed Rogue One and thought Alexander Freed did a good job at fleshing out the story and characters even more in this adaptation of the film. I think one of the reasons it took me so long to read this book was because I’ve seen the movie multiple times and since I already knew what was going to happen in the plot, I just wanted everything to progress faster, but since this was a novel that wasn’t the case.
That in no way means that this book is slow paced, it’s just a personal thing with me as a reader. So, I think that plus the “Supplemental Data” sections were what brought this book down for me. It’s still a well executed book that gives you great insight into the minds of these characters and explores their connections even more than they were in the film.
Overall, I did enjoy Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by Alexander Freed and I’d give it 4outof5Stars.
I’d also recommend it to any Star Wars fan or any fan of the Rogue One film.

Book Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh


Okay, this book was a lot more enjoyable as a whole to me compared to The Wrath and the Dawn. It took me awhile to get into the first book, but I was hooked from the first chapter of this one. Now, I understand why I liked this one more than the first one and that’s due to the fact that the first one has to set everything up. It’s job is to introduce me to this world that Renee Ahdieh created and she did a great job in the first one, it just took me awhile to get into it.

Hello guys,

I just wanted to make a quick post informing you guys that I won’t be reviewing The Last Jedi until after it comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray. After doing my marathon and reviews of episodes 1-7, plus Rogue One, I’ve just determined I’ll be able to better explain my feelings on the film when I’m able to watch it in the comfort of my own home instead of in a theater. You’ll still get my general thoughts of it when I post my Favorites of December post some time next week, but as for a full review that will come later in 2018. Hope you understand and I hope you guys have enjoyed my reviews of the other Star Wars movies.


Movie Review – Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

Now to conclude the marathon I did we have to discuss episode seven, The Force Awakens.

The Force Awakens had a lot to live up to when it came out and to me it did it’s job. It brought back everything that people loved about the Star Wars movies, and introduced new elements to the franchise to make it new, and refreshing. Were there some things that I didn’t like? Yes, there were, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is a solid beginning to a new trilogy of films.
Now, let’s discuss the pros and cons of The Force Awakens.

Movie Review – Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

Had to take a little break on writing up these reviews for the holidays, but I’m back with the last three films. Now let’s continue with episode six, Return of the Jedi.

Return of the Jedi does a good job of wrapping up this trilogy and giving the viewers closure on the story. I don’t think this one was as strong as The Empire Strikes Back, but I think I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed A New Hope.
Now, let’s take a closer look at Return of the Jedi.

Book Review: The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur


Rupi Kaur once again draws me into her world of pain, yet hope. I absolutely loved her first book, Milk and Honey and this second book did not disappoint. The imagery and the way Rupi expresses herself with words is so vivid, which makes it all the more enjoyable for me to read her work. I found myself getting lost in all of Rupi’s pain and self-loathing, but then being warmed by her descriptions of love for herself and others in her life.
I will say the stand out poem in this collection to me is “Home”. It was so powerful and actually made me start crying. It hit me so hard and I just found myself needing to take a second to collect myself before I read more. “The Art of Growing” was another stand out poem, along with “Broken English”. Both of them were so powerful in the message Rupi was trying to express in them.
It’s just so inspiring and amazing to me to read everything Rupi has been through and how she hasn’t let it destroy her. Her work makes me feel like I’m not alone when I’m feeling low or hopeless and makes me hope that one day all the darkness will disappear to let the light in.
Overall, I adored The Sun and Her Flowers as much as I adored Milk and Honey and I’m going to give it 5outof5Stars.

If you liked Rupi’s first book then I think you’ll enjoy this one, but I can understand how her work/the subject matter of her work is not for everyone. I’d still recommend you give her work a chance though because it is really enjoyable and thoughtful.
