The Mysterious Benedict Society (#1)

The Mysterious Benedict Society, (The Mysterious Benedict Society #1) by Trenton Lee Stewart When I first read this book, I gave it 5 stars... now I'm not so sure. Sometimes it weired me out... for example: 1. The Whisperer and Mr. Curtain's plan to brainwash the world 2. The brutal-ness that some of the employees showed… Continue reading The Mysterious Benedict Society (#1)

Valkyrie (Book #1)

Very hard to put down! I love this new take on Norse mythology! The only thing that bugged me about this and the sequel was how easily the Angels of Death let Freya have her way. But the ending was AMAZING! I had to reread that part 🙂 Just to clarify: the Angels of Death… Continue reading Valkyrie (Book #1)

Movies

Free Rein (TV Show)

Zoe Phillips (Jaylen Barron) just wanted a normal summer of relaxation in England. … Continue reading Free Rein (TV Show)

Heartstone (Heartstone #1)

Oh my!! I love this book! I'll admit, this book gave me a weird feeling inside, which I still can't quite name, but I think it may have been because I felt a "modern" book was trying to "copy" Pride and Prejudice 🙂 Yes, Heartstone does follow the major points of P&P (Mr. Bingley's arrival… Continue reading Heartstone (Heartstone #1)

The Greatest Showman

Love love love this movie. I dubbed it "The Greatest Show of 2017" 😀 My favorite "stage/phase" of Barnum (played by Hugh Jackman) was at the very beginning before he got cocky and at the end of the movie, after he learned his lesson.  I also enjoyed the talented child actors However, I feel like… Continue reading The Greatest Showman
