My Review:
Having noticed this on Netflix and thinking that it sounds like an interesting watch I thought I would give it a try and although it was different and that was what I was looking for it didn't quite hit the mark for me.

I did like that the main girl within the film was a teenager who wasn't in the right relationship for her and she had to discover that for herself. With people also thinking that it wasn't quite right and her defending him it seemed relateable to a lot of relationships which did make the girl a lot more likable and one that people could identify with. Having a bad relationship with her father and the thing that goes into people every day helping to fix that I thought was really sweet as it showed sometimes people need a little help in rediscovering their love for someone or something which they just aren't capable of doing themselves which can make them a stronger person. I also liked how the spirit was able to bring the main character out of her shell and make her less shy and showed her how you shouldn't judge someone just on how they look as it could be someone who you end up really liking and being friends with or lovers with. This is a great message for people as it helps them to notice that looks is just something in which no-one has no control over.  The love between the spirit and the girl I thought was also really sweet and really pure as it was romantic but didn't try to hold her back and was really cute in how they acted towards each other making this a really good romance movie. Finally, I thought that when the spirit did inhabit someone who was at risk of their own lives they touched this really well and actually got the person help which is a nice thing for them to do and not just sit back and watch it happen, showing that sometimes people aren't as alone as they think and if they are having really low thoughts then they need to talk to someone who might be able to help them.

On the other hand, this film didn't really answer any questions about the spirit or thing in which was inhabiting the people around them. By not understanding the character in which was A I feel that I didn't connect to the movie as much as I wish I did and hoped there would be more of A come through as the movie progressed. I also found that with some of the writing being through text messages I couldn't really read them making me miss parts of the movie which did frustrate me a little as it left me wondering what was happening at times throughout the film.

Overall, I thought that this film was really cute and had a really good idea behind it however it just left too many questions for me which did leave me a little disappointed. I would recommend this movie to those who are looking for a teenage romance that is different from the normal movies also those who like fantasy. I would watch this movie again!

My Rating: 3/5

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…
