My Review:
Continuing on with watching the Maze Runner trilogy the second film was something I couldn't help but to review.

The Scorch Trials is about the teenagers who survived the Maze trials and find out that they were not saved at all but brought into another part of Wicked who are draining children of their blood! As the children escape to find the safe haven called The Right Arm and facing cranks who are infected by the flare will the children survive?

This is my favourite film throughout the Maze Runner trilogy of films, it is very different from the books however so if you have read the books I would maybe suggest not watching the film unless you are okay with it being really different. This is however a great movie in which has a lot of action and the watcher is able to see more of the characters who survived the maze and more of their personalities come through. Not only this but the watcher is able to learn more about why WICKED is wanting the blood of the children and that Eva Page is not dead after all and is still conducting tests on the children. Throughout this film the watcher is also able to see more about the cranks and learn who they are and how the sun and the flare has changed the world that people are living in and how it can effect people.

Overall, I would recommend this film to those who are looking for a film with action while still being suitable for a teenage audience and someone wanting to watch a series of films or able to watch a film by itself even though it is part of a series.

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…
