When Harry Met Sally (film review)

Film: When Harry Met Sally
Year: 1989
Genre: Comedy, drama, romance
Starring: Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan, Carrie Fisher
About: Harry and Sally have known each other for years, and are very good friends, but they fear sex would ruin the friendship.

My Review:
Having never seen When Harry Met Sally before even though it is one of the most popular rom-com movies around I decided I would check it out and finally see if it is as good as everyone was making it out to be.

The film is about two people named Harry and Sally who end up going to New York together and then go their separate ways, however after many years they run into each other and start to become friends. As they do and both see start seeing other people they realise that they both love each other but refuse to tell each other.

I thought this film was good in the way that it had between scenes old couples saying how they had found their love at first sight and sharing their stories, this is something that I found rather adorable. I also thought it was very fitting with the film as it goes alongside how Harry and Sally feel about each other. I also liked the way that it showed how Harry and Sally were not ready for each other romantically for a long time showing that sometimes it takes a bit longer to be with the one you are meant to be with however it will happen if it is meant to.

I would recommend this  movie to those who like romance films and want something which seems a lot more real than a lot of romance films you are able to see. This is a film which has aged well and deserves to still be very well known.

My Rating: 4/5

My Review:
Having been a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
