It sucks…. ’nuff said

5 Apr

“Why haven’t you reviewed a book lately?”

I’ve been reading very often but I haven’t really liked many books. That means most of the books I’ve read have, in my own humble opinion, sucked.

The problem I find with a lot of books that don’t move me in any way is that I can’t really find words to describe why I hated it. It’s just something I know, not something I can analyze easily. This has ended up with me attempting to review it, only to end up with the words “idk, it just sucked” on my computer screen.

I will try, in my future, to write more reviews but you’ve got to understand that with me and my shallow brain, it’s gotten to be either “I liked it” or “it sucked”.

More reviews will hopefully come when I find more adjectives to describe my simple likes and dislikes.

Movie Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

31 May

Well, quite frankly, I felt we had to do this one. =)

This is essentially about Johnny Depp and Co. begging the general population’s forgiveness for Pirates 2 & 3 and trying to get back to the general awesomeness of Curse of the Black Pearl. 

I’ve forgive you. Awesomeness restored, though? The jury is out. Doubtless there will be another one, and at that point we’ll see if the franchise is back on the mend or in a kind of downward slide that repares itself slightly with the beginning of each trilogy.

But enough about the big picture stuff that keeps Disney execs up at night.

Book Review – Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols : PART 1

3 Mar

This book is GOOD!!

 

SUMMARY-

TWO IRRESISTIBLE BOYS. ONE UNFORGETTABLE SUMMER.

Lori can’t wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wakeboarding and hanging with her friends–including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she’s always been just one of the guys. Now that she’s turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that’s not going to happen–not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.

Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori’s romantic summer melt into one hot mess?

Book Review-Time Riders by Alex Scarrow

11 Feb

I actually really like this cover. Especially because the three people meet their descriptions so well, but the cover also doesn’t give much away about them. And there’s, you know, the flying saucer. =D

Summary: Maddy should have died in a plane crash. Liam should have died at sea when the Titanic sank. Sal should have died in a tragic fire. But a mysterious man whisked them away to safety.

Maddy, Liam, and Sal quickly learn that time travel is no longer just a hope for the future; it is a dangerous reality. And they weren’t just rescued from their terrible fates. . . they were recruited for the agency of TimeRiders created to protect the world from those seeking to alter the course of history for personal gain. By reliving the highly documented events in New York City on 9/11, they can closely monitor history for any deviations—large or small. When just such a change is detected, they are alerted that a threat is at hand unleashing the evil of the Nazis to wreak havoc with Earth’s present and future. Can Maddy, Liam, and Sal fulfill their destinies as keepers of time to save the world from utter destruction?

Am I the only person who believes in books standing alone any more? Going through this book I was dead certain that it was going to maybe have a sequel. Was I correct? No. This is book one of a planned NINE BOOK series.

Dear God…

Book Review: I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak

24 Jan

I bought this book from the ‘new arrivals’ shelf thinking ‘heck, it’s markus zusak!’ and then realized that it was originally printed in 2002 and I had a reprint that just empathized Markus Zusak and that he wrote The Book Theif. Thank you, uneducated Barnes & Noble shelvers.

Protect the diamonds. Survive the clubs. Dig deep through the spades. Feel the hearts.
