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.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
