Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-eRc9PF3TU

My Review:
Feeling like something that would be very easy watching and more of a romance movie I was happy when Set It Up appeared on my Netflix and thought that this would be perfect. This really happily surprised me and I am so happy this is the movie I chose.

I thought by having the two assistants both overworked and realising something had to be done in order to try and give them some time to have some social life was something that really helped to show how the two people needed a break and so teamed up together for their bosses. By keeping this only between them and setting up situations to bring the bosses together such as; getting stuck in an elevator together and kiss cam at a baseball game it was sweet to see how the two assistants worked together. Also having the male in a bad relationship and the woman unable to find love due to always working it set up for them noticing each other and falling for each other really nicely and didn't seem like the movie was forcing their romance. This was also really well done for the comedy in which was in this movie, it wasn't forced which did make me really like this movie and kept me wanting to see what happens next with all four of the characters (the two bosses and the two assistants). Another thing I did like was the ending of the movie when the assistants decide to tell the woman boss how their made the situations happen and how the male boss knew nothing about her and she deserved a lot better than him as it helped to show that sometimes people need someone else to show them the truth before they are able to see it themselves. By the female boss at the very end also bringing the assistants together realising that they are good for each other was really sweet and did make me smile.

I can't think of any bad points in this movie and think that this is a great rom-com which people should definitely watch if they are after a really sweet and warming movie. I am so glad that I seen this and will definitely be watching this 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…
