My Review:
Having not read the book for this but having seen a lot of people talk about it I decided to give it a watch and was really glad I did.

This film is about a girl who writes love letters to the five boys in which she has ever loved and when they get out she makes an agreement with one of the boys to fake being in a relationship so that her best friend doesn't look too much into his letter. However, when she starts to develop feelings for the fake boyfriend will she have her happily ever after.

I thought that this film was brilliant and that with the main character having been a bookworm and someone that was shy that she was rather relateable to me and how she views love and why she doesn't tell them how she feels. This film had great acting though out and although it was highly predictable I was glad it was as it still made me smile and super happy all the way though the movie. I believe that this film is one that deserves the hype in which it has currently got and is a movie in which I hope becomes one that gets remembered. With some of the situations in which the fake couple get into I thought it was good to show a more real side to the relationship and how love can happen in the most bizarre ways but is worth a chance. The ending of this movie where another of the boys from her letters end at her door makes me really hope that there is a second movie involving him as I would love to see how it continues on.

As a result of this film I am definitely going to be giving the book a read. I would highly recommend this movie for those looking for a romance film and for teenagers as this is one that needs to be seen. I will definitely be giving this film another watch and I am really glad that Netflix made this movie.

My Rating: 5/5

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt9L1jCKGnE

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
