The Fault In Our Stars - John Green (book review)



Book: The Fault In Our Stars
Author: John Green
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Published By: Penguin
Published year: 2012

My Review: 
Having seen the film before and always told to read the book I caved and decided to read it and I was not disappointed. Having been unable to put this book down since I started I managed to read this book in under 7 hours!

The Fault In Our Stars is about a girl called Hazel who has cancer however when she meets a boy at a cancer support group called Augustus she falls in love, while struggling with her cancer and worrying about him becoming too close to her.

I loved this book and it made me laugh at times and get a lump in my throat as well as sad. This book is a great romance with the twist of cancer between two teenagers who fall in love even though they know their time together is limiting however does not stop them from doing as much as they can. I feel that I have maybe seen the film too many times however as I always knew what was happening next as the film doesn't really change anything about the book at all. However, as the first of John Green's books that I have read I know that this is the first of many!

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
