My Review:
Feeling in the mood to see a romance movie I couldn't resist in watching one of my favourites called P.S. I Love You. This movie never fails to make me tear up and unable to look away from the screen.

I really like how the movie is taken place after the death of her husband and he is helping her to move on with her life by making her do different things and going to places in which she would not usually go in order to bring her back to the woman he loved. By sending her letters you can tell how much he loved her and that although he is no longer there he doesn't want her to just give up on her life and wants her to be the best person she can be. Having the movie also show the memories in which she is having with her late husband makes this film really sweet as the watcher is able to connect with both of the characters and really believe in their love and why the husband decides to do what he does. While this is going on having another character start to fall for her and want to be there for her is really sweet and you do hope for the two to get together even though by the ending you realise that they shouldn't be and are better as close friends. Another thing I do really like about this is that at the ending of the movie the watcher discovers that it is the mother who has been sending the letters for the husband and how even though she didn't like him she couldn't say no to his last wish especially when it helps her to heal even though it doesn't seem like it at the time. With the ending also showing that she might be able to move on with someone that her husband was friends with and helped to bring her to is really sweet and leaves the person watching believing that she will be able to be loved again and is opening herself up to being with someone else due to her late husbands help. The acting within this movie is something in which I love and makes the film really believable to me which really brings me into the movie.

Personally, I couldn't fault this film and is one that I really enjoy watching. I would recommend this film to those who are looking for a romance movie and one about moving on from the death of a loved one as it is amazing as both. This is definitely a movie I will watch 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…
