My Review:
Having a movie day with my mother we decided to choose a film each and at her choice of film chose the amazing Guardians of the Galaxy which is a film I have loved since I first seen it in the cinema when it came out and still do years later.

Guardians of the Galaxy is about a man called Peter Quill who when scavenging comes across an orb for a lot of money and goes to sell it however things don't go his way and when the evil Ronan tries to get his hands on it. Will the guardians be able to stop Ronan and save the galaxy as a result or will Ronan succeed?

I love this film and all of the action in which it contains due to being able to see how each character is vital to the team which gets known as the Guardians of the Galaxy. Showing how each member comes into contact with each other is also a really good addition as it shows what the motivation behind all of the characters getting the orb and why they are all teaming together. I thought that there was a lot of foreshadowing in this movie to later in this film as well as to future films which brings the film more together as well as giving the watcher a lot more excitement for future movies. Comedy is another factor of this film which is a good addition as it shows each character properly and makes the film a lot lighter and fun to watch than if it was only just action all of the way through. The end scenes are personally favourites of mine as it shows groot dancing which is just really cute to watch as well as adds some more comedy to the film, also showing Howard the Duck at the very end makes me want to see a film more dedicated to him in which I hope they add later in the MCU. Finally, the soundtrack to this film is brilliant and makes me want to dance along with the songs and sing along as well, making it one of my favourite soundtracks for a movie possibly ever.

I can't fault this film and really enjoy this movie every single time I see it. I would highly recommend this film to those who are fans of the MCU as well as wants a comedy and action film which is perfect for the whole family. This is a film I will definitely see again!

My Rating: 5/5

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…
