Goosebumps: One Day At Horrorland - R.L. Stine (book review)



Book: Goosebumps: One Day At Horrorland
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Horror, fiction, children's
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1994

My Review: 
Finishing my university assessments I chose a nice easy read to relax with and therefore chose one of my favourite Goosebumps books; One Day At Horrorland!

This book is about the Morris family and their friend Clay who when going to the zoo ends up at Horrorland a theme park which is in the middle of the desert. However when the rides end up too scary and they can't find their parents are they going to be able to escape?

This book is one of my favourite Goosebumps books and one that leaves me slightly scared as well as having a lot of adventure and comedy in which you would expect from a Goosebumps book. This is a book which never gets old and over twenty years later is still just as good as it was then. This book is an easy read and one that is perfect for children and for adults who would like a nice easy book to read.

I highly recommend this to children as well as those who are wanting to read a little from their childhood. Amazing book!

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. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

My Review:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained.

Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the boy's team showed h…
