My Review:
Seeing this movie come up on recently added on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch especially as I am feeling very much in a Rom-Com movie mood lately. Seeing that this movie also had Rebel Wilson was in it made me want to check this out even more as she makes me laugh and I have enjoyed the movies I have seen her in previously.

I found that this was a movie in which I was able to relate to as the main character doesn't believe in love the way that rom-coms are shown and tries to get herself out of it. I loved that the message in the movie in which the watcher discovers in the end is that you should love yourself more than you love anyone else and I thought that this was something in which needed to be approached in a movie. By having the main character as just a normal person in which is easy to bond with I thought that this made the movie a lot more relateable for the audience and make a change from a lot of the rom-coms in which are shown. This movie made me laugh a lot more than I thought it would and played on the cliche's in which are within romantic comedy movies which I thought made it a lot more fun to watch while having the humour not feel forced at the same time. Having her also realise that she loves her best friend and wants to be with him and at the ending when she comes to the real world again realising that he has been looking at her for ages and that they are both wanting to be together was really sweet and made the perfect ending to the movie which stays true to the genre.

This is a film in which I would highly recommend to those who like romantic comedies and spoofs of them as well as this was really well done for both. I also think that if you are looking for a movie which will actually make you laugh then Isn't It Romantic would be a great film for you. This is one I will definitely need to see again!

My Rating: 4/5

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…
