My Review:
Wanting to watch a Marvel movie I couldn't resist but decide to watch Captain America: Civil War which I have not seen since it was in the cinema back in 2016. This is my views on the movie.

The film is about when the government want to own the Avengers, Captain America and some of the other Avengers refuse to do so. However, when at a United Nations meeting there is an explosion and Bucky Barnes is accused of causing it Captain America and his friends will do anything to stop Iron Man.

This film is action from the very start and this makes me really like the film and be drawn into it almost instantly. Not only this but by causing a drift between two of the characters; Captain America and Iron Man it makes the fans need to choose who's side they are on and show more of a political edge to the Marvel Universe which hasn't happened previously. Also by adding in new characters such as Spiderman and Black Panther the fans are excited to see what happens next for both of these characters and want to see more of them making this film far more exciting.

This film is one that Marvel fans should not miss as it includes most of the characters within the MCU while also adding new ones which leads to the Black Panther and Spiderman solo movies. This is a film in which is my favourite within the Captain America franchise and with it ending with still Tony Stark and Steve Rodgers not on talking terms it leaves the watcher wondering what is going to happen next.

I would highly recommend this movie to fans of Marvel and to those who are wanting to see a film with a lot of action.

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…
