Valentine's at the Graff - Sinclair Jayne (book review)

Valentine's at the Graff is the fourth book in the Holiday at the Graff series of books by Sinclair Jayne. However, you do not need to have read the other books before this to read it as it a great stand alone novel, which makes you not want to put it down once you pick it up!

This book follows two protagonists; one is Miranda a woman who is opening her own shop and has been focusing on everyone else but herself for her whole life. The other is Witt; a doctor who has taken a residency for one month at his home town of Marietta and has been focusing on leaving as fast as he can. I loved this about the book as it showed both sides of the novel from both the male's perspective as well as the woman's.

As the book starts Miranda is only just about to open her store when Witt enters town who she has been in love with since she was in high school and twelve years later nothing has changed. However as the book carries on you see how they both gain feelings for each other as Miranda helps to look after Witt's cousin Petal when he is at work. As you see the beauty and romance come through for both characters you do start to see into both of their pasts and why they are both made into the way they are. Especially for Witt, this is a critical thing as you understand why he isn't interested in having friends and doesn't see himself as someone who Miranda could love.

This is a book I couldn't put down once I started it and constantly made me smile and look forward to what was going to happen next. I think this book would be a great read for anyone who likes romance books as it does make you smile and you don't need to read the rest of the series to read this one.

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo My Review: Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession  which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school.

I also liked how the film showed how the stude

Mysteries and Secrets of Magic - C.J.S. Thompson (book review)

Book: Mysteries and Secrets of Magic Author: C.J.S. Thompson Published By: Senate Published Year: 1927 My Review:  As this book is a non-fiction book about magic I did find this rather interesting to read however it seemed like this novel was more of a tester to see what kind of topic you would be most interested in with it only having short amounts on various topics such as: Supernatural Beings, Greek and Roman Magic, Magical Numbers, The Grimoires or Handbook of Black Magic, Magic in Shakespeare's Plays and many more. This did however teach me about magic that I didn't know about and now want to look more into as a result of this book and discover more about the magic of the past as well if there is any use of magic in the world now as we know it in 2018 almost 100 years after this book was first published. I would recommend this book to those who would like to know more about magic however don't know what they would like to learn as this will help you know what as

Jeepers Creepers 3 (film review)

Film : Jeepers Creepers 3 Year : 2017 Genre : Horror, Mystery, Thriller Starring : Stan Shaw, Gabrielle Haugh, Brandon Smith About : Sheriff Dan Tashtego and a team of creeper hunters enlist the help of officer Davis Tubbs to help stop the monster's eating spree. My Review:  Jeepers Creepers 3 is more of a transition film between the first and second film starting exactly where the first one ended and ending exactly as one of the boys go onto the school bus like in the second movie.  This film is more about Jeepers Creepers himself and showing how he is able to catch the people in which he is tracking down. As well as this you are able to see how a woman has a part of Jeepers Creepers that is able to look into his history and figure out the way of possibly destroying him. This did annoy me however as during this you see that two of the characters are able to see into his past but does not show the audience anything at all or really tell you anything about the past t
