    Eddie the eagle!!
    A movie review<<<

    Eddie the eagle a movie based off of a true story!
    Eddie the eagle is a British skier who in 1988 became the first competitor since 1929 to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping!
    In the movie he tells his inspirational story about how it all started!!!
    Moral- Failure is only an opportunity to begin again, only this time more wisely!
    In other words, No matter how Many times you fail, never give up !
    My favourite character would have to be Edward, because he inspired me by never giving up on his amazing dream.
    My favourite parts are when he fails his jumps. 😂 9/10!

  2. The Magic faraway tree:

    The author of this book is one of my favourites, Enid Blyton. All of her books are always so engaging and magical, but this is definitely one of my favourites. It is a beautiful that I have loved for many years. It has so much magic which makes everything seem so special. I rate this book a 10/10. There is absolutely nothing I can fault about this book.

    THE WINNER’S CRIME BY MARIE RUTKOSKI is the 2nd book in the Winner’s Trilogy. This book for me, was just pain after pain after pain. Literally what keeps you reading this book is the yearning for something good to happen, which only happened like 2 times during the entirety of the book. Even though I still do not totally agree with Kestrel and Arin’s love story, I still think they both deserve justice. I think that their relationship can be very problematic at times, especially with the lies, betrayal and schemes. Kestrel annoyed me big time during this book for reasons like wanting to be with Arin but then just treating him like utter trash. That was a huge thing that kept relapsing and it just got so unnecessary. I don’t even know how Arin could still have feelings for her. But by the end of the book, my heart went out for Kestrel and I did shed my fair share of tears. New characters were introduced like the Emperor’s son – Prince Verex who played an interesting role, the Dacra Queen and her brother – who you grow to love and Tensen – a Herrani spy with a strong motive. This book made the series 100x bearable and I wonder what I’ll think of the last book (hopefully it doesn’t disappoint me, or I’ll do three times the angry ranting – scary stuff).

    Grown ups-
    (Movie review)

    Both of the grown ups movies are absolutely hilarious !
    I feel as though, no matter how many times you watch them, they never get old!
    You can watch them both 3 times in a row and still laugh your head off 😂
    The passing of Coach buzzer reunites a group of guys. (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, and David Spade)
    Simply impossible not to laugh at the crazy families reuniting!
    Though they lost their ability to play basketball, they are still willing to give it their best shot, ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS!
    I recommend this movie to anyone above the age of 10, as it has some mature scenes.
    My favourite part is the scene where they are lining up to swing on a rope in the woods, and one of the guys fell off and squished a bird.
    Gets me every time 😂
    10/10 FOR SURE

    Selp helf- By Miranda Sings! (Book review)

    Youtuber, Coleen Ballinger’s (acting as Miranda sings) book ‘selp helf’ was one of my favourites for a long time. I do not watch her YouTube anymore, but once upon a time I was actually a huge fan!
    I suggest checking out her YouTube before reading her book, otherwise you wouldn’t understand the concept! 😂 I think my favourite thing about this book is the babysitting section, where Miranda sings gives jokey advise for babysitting small kids!
    She states problems, then gives solutions!
    My favourite problem and solution would have to be…
    ‘Baby eats something he shouldn’t…PRETEND YOU DIDN’T SEE!!!’
    Haha Thanks Miranda!
    This book can be found in the learning centre 😊

    Middle school-
    The worst years of my life
    (Movie review)

    The middle school movie is a sad story about a young boy struggling to find belonging at school.
    He transfers to middle school, where the principle quickly punishes him and destroys a book of his favourite drawings!
    He decides to get his revenge by breaking the school rules to try and destroy the rule obsessed principle.
    I suggest this movie to all ages because it is a PG rated family comedy!
    My favourite part is when Rafe covers the entire school in sticky notes!!! 😂 The middle school movie is sure to make you laugh, a 9/10 from me!

    EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING BY NICOLA YOON is a contemporary novel that follows the life of Madeline as she suffers from a sickness that cannot let her outside (if she did go outside, she would probably die). But when a new family moves next door, she meets Olly and becomes attached. This book was heavy load for me and made me cry several times. The love between Olly and Maddy felt so genuine and understanding. The obstacles that Maddy had to face was a ton load and she is a very strong character for that. She takes risks and all to know what it actually means to live. Some parts of this book seemed really rushed but if I’m judging the overall book then it didn’t really matter because the amazing writing and the character development made up for it. There weren’t many characters that were a main part of the story but my favourite was probably Maddy’s nurse because she felt the empathy towards Maddy that she really needed. This book is great if you want a good cry, a great laugh or if you’re facing a book slump.

    SIX OF CROWS BY LEIGH BARDUGO is fantasy novel about an impossible heist. There are 6 diverse characters who are Kaz Brekker, Inej Ghafa, Nina Zenik, Jesper Fahey, Matthias Helvar, and Wylan Van Eck. Kaz is the leader of the gang. He is known for being cruel and being crippled. He is always underestimated but that doesn’t stop him from succeeding in his schemes. Inej is his spy and is known as ‘The Wraith’. She is small but is definitely not fragile. Nina is a heartrender. She has the power to kill someone as easy as a flick of her wrist because of her magical ability. Jesper is the sharpshooter and has the best aim out of everyone. Matthias is the ex convict who is thirsty for revenge. Lastly, Wylan is the runaway who had a privileged past. But although he had all the privilege he needed, he still didn’t have a great family life. The impossible heist begins to achieve all the riches they wish. This book has great representation of people of colour, the disabled, the LGBT community, sex workers and religious elements. This is one of my favourite books because the story was so interesting and the humour had me cackling. This storyline was so unique and the dynamics between all the characters really just had my heart to the fullest. 98% from me and 100% recommendation.

    ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS BY STEPHANIE PERKINS is a contemporary novel which portrays the love of Anna and St Clair. Anna moves to France to finish her studies and happens to be friends St Clair and his inner circle. This book is fantastic to read if you are in a book stump because I feel like it opens your eyes to so much emotion and great writing. My favourite character has to be Josh because of his humour an artistic personality. This is a romance book but it is so funny and entertaining as well! In some parts of the book it makes you feel so bad for Anna because of all the stumps she faces but what makes her such a great character is the way she fights back and doesn’t let anything shame her. This book taught me that home is not place, but with the people that mean the most to you.

    WIRES AND NERVE BY MARISSA MEYER is a cute graphic novel after the events of Winter which is the final installment in the Lunar Chronicles series. It follows the brave and heroic android, Iko, on her adventure as she captures the mutated Lunar soldiers. This book made me laugh so hard that my stomach hurt. It had all the characters from the TLC series involved but focused on the humanity of Iko. Kinney is still trying to warm up to Iko as he keeps reminding himself that she is nothing but a hunk of metal. But that gets hard, since her personality feels so real to him. It made me feel really giddy with all the Cress and Thorne scenes because their characters felt so authentic and easy to connect with. I really missed Kai in this story because he is one of my favourite characters but he was probably busy with his Emperor propaganda. Overall, I am very excited for volume 2 and I really want to see Iko trying to find herself and Kinney finally accepting her.

    THE WRATH AND THE DAWN BY RENEE AHDIEH is a very unique fantasy book. It introduces an entire different world with a very interesting plot line. Me, being of South Asian descent, found this book to reflect very well on trying to create new and different environments. The naming of all these characters were all so unique and creative and blended with the story. The magic in this book was brief but it was already telling a story which had so much depth. Khalid is known as the King of Kings who has no mercy. He is known as this scary and monstrous king who reigns above everyone. Shazi just lost her best friend because Khalid, who mysteriously kills all his wives at dawn every time he gets married. She is determined to have her vengeance and make sure Khalid pays for the blood that he has shed. Shazi is a strong, empowering and persistent character who represents Young Adult fiction with such integrity. This book was not all action and old tales, it is also romantic and makes all your emotions wild. This novel is a must read and I rate it 96%.

    A COURT OF MIST AND FURY BY SARAH J. MAAS is high fantasy novel. It is the 2nd book of the ACOTAR series and by far better than the last book. It had all the great romance parts but also stayed true to its action packed self. The storyline is very unique and it was very well written just like all the other Sarah J. Maas books. What was lacking was that I felt all the characters were the same. They were all sarcastic and witty and the only contrast to that was Elain which is Feyre (the protagonist’s sister) and Tamlin. But the rest of it was amazing as it had all the parts that made the emotional side come out. The world building was so pure and I could just imagine exactly what was going on. The characters were described vividly and gave me so many feelings. My favourite character is Rhysand because he has so many layers and goes through this amazing character development. So does Feyre, as she finally accepts herself for who she has become. I recommend this to others who love fantasy and romance mixed together.

    ELEANOR AND PARK BY RAINBOW ROWELL is a contemporary novel that is a blooming and unique love story. The characters have a depth with such amazing back stories that makes the story fuller. Eleanor is just a girl with glorious red hair trying to fit in. She is different compared to anyone else and that’s what makes her self conscious most of the time. Park keeps to himself. He loves comics and music and is genuinely a nice person. When he sees Eleanor for the first time, he feel embarrassed. But as time progresses his feelings for her turn into something more. It is a beautiful story with both 2 completely different characteristics. The bumps they face really smoothed out at the end, even though I didn’t really fancy it. All the characters were really diverse, wise and had the funniest dialogue. I would rate this story 96% as it made me feel so many emotions that I could not even fathom.

    MAGNUS CHASE AND THE GODS OF ASGARD BY RICK RIORDAN is the 2nd fantasy book about norse mythology and follows the hero Magnus Chase, son of Frey. First of all, I must praise Rick Riordan for having SO MUCH representation in his books. It started with Percy Jackson, with little to no representation, to Trials of Apollo and Magnus Chase with outstanding amount of representation. He has come such a long way, and to fulfil many kids and teens (and adults) dreams to see themselves in books. A homeless kid, a Muslim girl, a hard of hearing person, people of colour and a genderfluid character. And all these characters are actually given storylines and are written correctly. I am proud to say that he is my favourite author, and I have only just started reading his books this year. The thing about Rick Riordan’s books is that something happens every single chapter. The names of the chapter are just as exciting as well. Magnus is a very relatable character and his snarky remarks are what I live for. We are introduced to a new character called Alex Fierro in this book and OH MY GOD I’M SO GLAD. I really think Magnus and Alex would be the ultimate duo, just saying. Sam continues to slay, no surprise there, and her love life is what made me laugh because of how realistic Amir’s (her betrothed) takes everything, it just brought the real world back. These books are definitely worth the time and I can’t wait for the last book!!

    LORD OF SHADOWS BY CASSANDRA CLARE is a fantasy book, 2nd of the Dark Artifices series. This continues from Lady Midnight, where Emma and Mark are faking their relationship in order for Julian to fall out of love with Emma. Annabel is awake which leaves the Shadowhunter world at a hectic time. This book was so much fun to read because I was laughing 70% of the time. Emma Carstairs is truly an iconic character with her sarcasm and wit as well Mark who is kinda clueless of mundane life. The end really had me shaken, and I really was surprised. I was crying, like really, really crying. I did feel kind of anguished since my ships were kind of just crashed down? I mean, Cristina and Diego really had my heart but the universe just doesn’t like me so I couldn’t have what I wanted. And the Clary and Jace business wasn’t resolved and it just really hurt me? I really don’t like Cassandra Clare (like, at all) because of a lot of the problematic stuff she has done, but this book really made me warm up to her. The prejudice against the faeries really foreshadowed the world we live in today and I think including these issues, especially in young adult novels, would really give an insight to young people and educate them. It made me think, if this book made me laugh and cry and get angry and smile, what will the last book in this series do to me? (Reading this book would mean reading the rest of the shadowhunter chronicles books, just saying.)

    A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN BY SARAH J MAAS is the 3rd high fantasy book in the ACOTAR series. This book had me in TEARS so many times. I am sad to be letting go of Feyre and Rhysand’s story and I don’t think I’m ready AT ALL. I feel as though I prefer the second book compared to this one. I think the reason is because I had such high expectations for certain storylines that never happened and that’s when the hype died. This book was phenomenal though and I am so happy that Sarah J Maas decided to bring in more representation (including more people of colour, LGBTQ characters etc…). The world of ACOTAR will continue next year but not in Feyre’s perspective which breaks my heart. This series is definitely worth the read and it has been my favourite since of last year when I was smart enough to pick it up. It is a long read, as this book was 800+ pages but it was worth every single minute!!! It is action packed with something happening every chapter which is what pulls you into the universe. My favourite character just has to be Amren because of the reveal of her true form. New relationships bloom such as Cassian and Nesta’s which really makes your heart hurt. Sarah J Maas really has a way with her words, expressing all these emotions and feelings and it really gets to you. If you haven’t read picked this book, i assure you that you will feel so much regret when the rest of the spin-off series comes out and you need to catch up. This book gets a 97% from me.

    THE WINNER’S CURSE BY MARIE RUTKOSI is a romance book within a fantasy world. I would recommend this book if you are in a book stump and cannot get yourself to read anything. This book really opens your eyes to many things like deception, prejudice and new perceptions of love. The story of Kestrel follows a girl who does not want to marry, nor lineup for the military. Her life as the general’s daughter is hard, but gets even more tough after meeting Arin, the slave she buys one day at the market. I think this book is worth the read, although it was not that great. I did not agree with the love story of Arin and Kestrel by the end of the book (though at the start I thought it was okay). I think that romanticizing their conditions is problematic but that’s just my opinion. The writing was good, it had a great way of using words that sudden things just happened and it kept you on your toes. Kestrel was kind of annoying at times but aren’t all protagonists at one stage? The forbidden trope of relationships is what I have always admired but this book got me iffy on it. This was like any other fantasy book I have read. Overall this book gets a 76% from me.

  23. EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING
    This book was amazing to read, this book has expanded by mind and vocabulary. The whole time I have been reading this every page I read each page has kept me on my toes. there are so many questions that run through my head within each chapter. I was more than surprised when Maddy’s mum lied for 17 years, if I was in her position I would probably leave the house, I would be very mad and disappointed that the one person I thought that loved me the most. Which at the start she was so generous and looked like she put her whole life towards Maddy’s. Which I feel terrible that Maddy has wasted her whole life and now after 17 years she finally can go free. But without thinking that Maddy had the disease Olly could’ve given up on Maddy but when he found out she kept wanting to find more.

    The Visit…
    Movie review

    The visit is a comedy and Horror film about two siblings visiting their grandparents house.
    They have never met them before, and didn’t know much about them.
    All of a sudden the grandparents start acting strange!
    The kids are miles away from their parents, and in a non safe environment.
    Things worsen when they find out some disturbing news…

    I suggest this movie to anyone over the age of 12, because it is a horror movie!
    It includes jump scares and other frightening things and these scenes may scare younger viewers.
    My favourite part is the ending. I won’t spoil!!
    My favourite Character would have to be the main.
    He is played by Ed Oxenbould who is also featured in the following movies…
    Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day,
    Paper planes,
    Better watch out,
    Julian,
    The butterfly tree,
    All Gods creatures,
    The amber amulet,

    Coroline,
    (Movie review)
    The movie ‘Coroline’ is the animated story of a girl who moves to a new state and begins living in a boring old house.

    She struggle to find entertainment, until she finds a small door in the new house.

    The door opens in the daytime to expose a brick wall.

    But at night, it opens up a pathway to a new world for coroline.

    Was taking this pathway the right decision for Coroline?

    My favourite character in this story would have to be Bobinski.

    Bobinski is a Tall acrobatic man with thin limbs and a huge round stomach.
    I like him because of his unique name.
    He lives nearby to Coroline.

    My favourite part of this film is when Bobinski is swinging around Coroline, when they first meet.

    I recommend this movie to anyone above 7 years old.
    I do not recommend this to someone below the age of 7, as when I first watched this movie it scared the crap out of me.
    I was around 6.

    Anyone above the age of 7 should definitely watch this movie!

    Anyone older than 18 years may not find it funny…

    and it hits the bad guy in the head 3 times in a row!
    My favourite character is Kevin because of his
    cheeky, naughty personality.

    I love the movie ‘forest Gump’ because it provides a great moral.
    I think the moral of the story is that it doesn’t matter who you are, you can make a change.
    Forest Gump had trouble walking as a child, but when he got older he managed to run!
    This inspired me. people with a disability shouldn’t be bullied. It amazed me how Forest was able to ignore the bullies, and try not to let them affect him.
    I suggest all rom-com lovers to watch this film.

    it is one of those movies you will never forget.

    ‘Vacation’ Movie review!
    The movie vacation is by far the funniest movie I have ever watched.
    It is definitely for an audience of 12+ y/o.
    10/10 from me.
    The only improvement I can suggest is that the makers of the movie do a part 2.
    The movie features a family going on a vacation, but the family find themselves in numerous sticky situations throughout their ‘relaxing’ holiday.
    It is impossible not to laugh while watching!
    I admire the familys persistence, mainly the father. Even when everything went wrong, he didnt give up.
    Go check it out…

    Forget me not by Sue Lawson is an emotional book based on the true story of the titanic which sunk in April, 1912.
    I recommend this book to anyone from the ages of 12+ as some of the words are confusing.
    This book is a MUST READ!
    It tells the story of a group of kids and teenagers who were on the titanic as it sunk over 100 years ago. It is a step into what it was like to be in such a terrible situation with no good ending. Before reading this book, I had no idea of the impact on all the lives lost in this terrible tragedy, and all that had connection to these people.
    Such an inspiring story (:

    Counting by 7s ~book~ by Holly Goldburg

    When I first lay eyes on this book and read the blurb I really didn’t think that it would be my type of book. It is about a girl named Willow Chance who got home from psychology to find out her parents had both been killed in a brutal car accident. From that moment onwards she finds herself in some sticky situations. Her life was changed forever.
    I loved this book so much and I really hope that they make it into a movie.
    The characters are all so unique and the ending is unprodictable.
    Check it out, you wont regret it!!!

    Matilda ~book and movie~ by Roald Dahl
    In my opinion, the Matilda movie beats the book.
    I think this because the story itself is very comical, dramatic and thrilling and it is less entertaining to imagine it, compared to watching the story unfold!
    The story is of a young girl named Matilda who was bought up by two parents who didn’t appreciate her. Her brother was always the favourite child. As Matilda grew she developed a great love for reading and general academic. She was constantly starring at words on a page. Because of this, when the time came for her to finally enter school, she was extremely advanced. I will not spoil the rest of the story, but I definitely suggest everyone to read/watch the movie ‘Matilda’
    It is sure to make you laugh, and keep you on the edge of your seat!
    10/10 from me!!! 😉

    I love this movie! I really like the characters and the moral of the story. It is about a girl that is the leader and she is not allowed beyond the reef but she wants to get rid of the curse that seeps over the island. She is such a strong and bewildered character that is determined. I think that my favourite part of this movie would have to be the songs that they sing because they are so catchy. Moana is one of my favourite characters because she was very persistent to finish what she started. I would definitely recommend this movie to all the kids that love disney movies and it is also a great family movie!

    the martian is a very interesting movie that requires you to follow the storyline to understand. it has a lot of scientific references to engage the audience and create a ‘sciency’ feel for the movie. throughout the movie it sort of makes yo want find out if the man will ever get back from mars and the question wether he will live or not. this movie I think is appropriate for the ages of 13+ because it is quite maturely themed. I give this movie a 3 and a half star rating.

I felt like it was to tense!! i think that my favourite part would have to be when they went on a adventure in the car and they ran away from the possible husband to be.

    I Have recently read this book and I really did enjoy it! I liked it how it was about the holocausu and the true things that happened during that horrible time but I also like it how the author made it seem like there were people that had no idea what was going on. I also liked that Bruno and Shumel were the same age but they lived completely different lives at this time just depending on where they were from and there background. I think my favourite part of the book was when Bruno found a friend that he visited everyday. I think that my favourite character would have to be Shamuel because being a boy that was in the camp would have been very difficult and it would have taken a very strong boy to stay happy and resilient at this time and I think that is what he did. I don’t think that I can personally relate to anyone but at some stage in our life we are unaware of what is going on around us, just like Bruno! I think my least favourite part would be the ending cause it was so sad and it was unexpected until the last few pages. I don’t think that I would change anything about this book because it was a great read and u would definitely recommend this book to people that like read about true stories!!

    This book is a choose your own ever after book, so while your reading the book you can choose different paths. This book was about a girl called Edie who either becomes a really good netballer and makes the state team or, Edie drops out of the team and sores a lead role in Romeo and Juliet. In both of these paths there is two boys and she either choses a boy called Finn over netball or, if she joins the school play she we will be with her dream crush, Freddy. I enjoyed this book because it was a choose your own path book and there good because you can make up the story. I also liked it because it had a little to do with sport and it was a love story as well. I would recommend this book to anyone who has never read a choose your own path book or enjoys reading drama and love stories. A great thing about this book is that you can read it more than once because there are different endings and paths you can choose. I rate this book a 8/10.

    This book is a choose your own ever after, so while your reading the book you can choose your own path and it tells you what pages you can flip to. I found this book fun because you got to choose what you wanted the end of the story to be. This book was about a girl called Phoebe, one path you could choose was that Phoebe and her best friends get invited to the coolest party of the year and there is a really cute guy that her best friends want to set her up with, but on the same night as the party Phoebe and her friends have a fundraiser for there club. So another path you can take is, Phoebe and her friends decide to help out with the fundraiser and one of her friends is hanging out with this boy and Phoebe is getting a bit jealous. Through out the book there is also more paths you can choose. I enjoyed this book because it was about love and it was funny! I would recommend this book to anyone that likes adventures, love, and if they have never read a pick your own path type of book! One good thing about this book is you can read it twice and it’ll come with a different ending and different start. I rate this book a 8/10.

    The Magic Faraway Tree [book]

    The Faraway Tree is a wonderful, magical book to read, it is very creative with all the different particular characters the author has made up. This children’s novel is about how a bunch of children go on all sorts of adventures to different lands, they do have some difficulties on the way, but that is all part of the adventure. An interesting part of the storey is actually how they get to all the lands, and that is with the help of there friends that live in the faraway tree. Some of there friends are Moonface, Silky, the Saucepan man and many more. And so for the children to get to all the lands they climb to the top of the tree and go through a shoot in moonface’s houses. An important thing to remember when the children are up in the land is to keep track of time because the land does move on and if you stay there to long you could move on with it, and get stuck there for a very, very long time. I found this book a fun and entertaining to read because when ever i finished a chapter or a page, it always made me eager to read more. I recommend this book to younger children, in primary school because of how fun and different it is to other children’s novels out there.

    wonder, [the book] I have never read a book that has moved me so much, i believe Wonder is a book that lots of people should read. Wonder is a story about how a boy called August. August’s face is deformed. he goes through life with people staring at him and judging him with out even knowing who he is. August Pullman has been homeschooled because of the amount of surgeries he has had done on his face. One night things start to shift around through a conversation that happens between his mum and dad. The conversation is about how August should start school. At first August is not so convinced and doesn’t want to go, but as days go on he wonders and thinks about it and how it wouldn’t hurt trying something knew, so he decides to give it a try. August knew for sure that when he starts school he will have the same looks and stares from students as he gets from everyone every day. As he goes threw his first year at school there were some ups and downs, but things start to get better. As the story goes on it stops the first part of the book which is from august’s viewpoint and moves onto a different character in the book, which could be anyone. For example a member of august’s family, or a friend that he has met at school and they say there viewpoint and story about themselves and what they think of August.

    And so there is so much going on in the book and it is a great book to read and understand what he went threw. i recommend this book to students from year 4 and above, even adults should read this.

    The Maze Runner is a science fiction story, which takes place in modern times. This book is very intense throughout and keeps readers on the edge of their seats. The book is written in first-person narrative from the perspective of the main character, Thomas. He is portrayed as a reserved young man and has a good head on his shoulders. The book helps us have the knowledge of what it’s like to be isolated. I read the book on the first day I got it, it was that good. The movie was okay but a lot different to the original story plot, which I didn’t like that much, but it’s okay since it happens to every book that becomes a movie.

    I really like the story plot since it’s very unique, it uses the idea of teenagers being immune to the disease. It makes me feel happy that maybe I’ve got a chance to live since they are teenagers and I’m a teenager. YES! Unlucky for most adults. The book uses intense and gruesome scenes to help build the story plot, the book is ‘WICKED’. I love, how authors tend to use languages to help have the attention of readers.

    The heart-warming book about a young couple facing a disrupting time of their lives. They both suffer a life threatning ‘cancer’ in their life. When the word cancer comes into a sentence my heart starts to feel warm and I start to feel sympathetic. Especially when they are just young teenagers. The movie and the book had a huge impact in my life, not just the moral of the story, but my life. I came into realisation that I want to help people who suffer these problems. I want to become a paediatrician when I grow up, because I feel as if, that since I’m a teenager I definitely wouldn’t like to be growing up with cancer. Helping teenagers and children since they suffer cancer or anything that is putting a hold in their life.

    The author uses a language that young readers are able to read. Helping them to realise the moral. I love how the book uses a couple to help encourage people that do suffer the same as the characters that they are important.

    When I first watched the movie, it was in the plane. At the end we all know what happens, don’t even want to talk about it because it’s so heart breaking. Any ways, I started crying and it was at night in the plane and I was the only one awake, my family was sleeping, and I was balling my eyes, trying not wake anyone. The flight attendant came to me asking me whats wrong, I said that I watched a sad movie, she started laughing and gave me some tissues. This proves how much I love this movie, because I think everyone wants to feel ‘moved’, that they start crying.

    The first thing that struck me about the book, beyond the smart, polished prose and the immediately compelling protagonist Katniss, was the depth of insight into human life which Collins so deftly exhibits. Almost from the first page, as with Rowling’s Potter novels, the reader is struck with a sense that here is something special—that often ineffable quality which so many writers lust to possess but which is rarely achieved, that this book in some strange way resonates with the deepest realities of human existence, or at least of human existence at this time in history.

    Going into The Naturals, I think I was expecting just an okay book. But I’m pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this–in fact, I really, really liked it! There’s something about this book that just WORKED.

    Wow. It’s really amazing to jump out of your comfort zone every once in a while, is it? I mean, I guess this book isn’t strictly outside my “comfort zone” … maybe just outside my norm. But still, it’s good to mix things up. I have to be in a very specific mood to pick up a modern thriller, and luckily, that mood finally struck, because I’ve been wanting to pick up this book for a long time it hasn’t disappointed.

    Immediately when I started reading, I began to think of Criminal Minds counterparts, but this was a disservice to Barnes’ character creations. Cassie, while a little bit clinical due to her natural ability, is still a very deep character with some painful memories that serve as her motivation. I adored her character. Cassie intelligent brain was able to pinpoint the backgrounds of other people. I became to envy her special talents, her ability to predict the future is one that every die heart fan of science fiction novels wants.

    After reading about the stories of Cassie, I’m instantly very intrigued to read the stories of the rest of the group members, as it helps me to find who the killer is. I hope when reading the next few chapters were able to find out.

    I loved watching Zootopia, it was so much fun and I loved how as much as Julie was told there is no such thing as a bunny cop and got so much negative feedback it didn’t stop her from doing the thing she loved and in this case that was being a cop. In the end she ended up cracking the most important case. it is a real inspirational and eye opening movie I give it a 10 out of 10

  79. the series of unfortunate events was a really funny but sad book I loved how no matter what happened that the 4 kids would alway work together and never give up. although the parents did die the kids definitely become closer and more aware of the wider family and figure out the real reason behind the fire that took some of there most valuable things even there parents, while at the same time defeating the BAD guy and saving many of the lives he may have killed to get to the kids.

    Fire and Flood – Victoria Scott:

    I absolutely love ‘Fire and Flood’ by Victoria Scott…actually that is an underestimate! I read this book as my L.I.T circles book in Year 7 and I could not stop reading, I had to restrain myself from reading over the limit! This book is about the main character Tella Hallaway and her determination to enter a race called the Brimstone Bleed. This competitions prize is a cure for the competitor’s sick loved one. Tella enters this Brimstone Bleed with courage and perseverance to find the cure to her brother’s deadly illness that is slowly killing him. She is pushed to limit through the 2 ecosystems, the rainforest and the desert, and it shows how determined she is to win for her brother Cody and save his life. My favourite character is Tella. Tella has a soft, beautiful side of her but she also has a strong, determined will in her character. She would do anything to save her brother. She also meets Guy, a boy with the mysterious, cold blue eyes.
    This book is one of my favourite reads and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who loves to be on the edge of their seat and not get bored. I would recommend this book for the ages of 11+ and I rate it 10/10!

    Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins:

    Everybody who has read the ‘Hunger Games’ or has watched the movie knows how good it is. There is action and adventure, challenges and determination, but the main character Katniss Everdeen perseveres through it all. The Hunger Games is about the competition of the ‘Hunger Games’. A boy and a girl are chosen from each district and are taken to the Capital city where they compete to death. The boy or girl who is still alive at the end is the winner. In district 12 where Katniss lives, her younger sister Prim, who is in the reaping for the first time, is called out, basically to death. Katniss volunteers to takes her spot as she knows she will have a better chance. She is then chosen with Peeta, the boy. They go on this crazy and thrilling journey of adventure. There is romance, times when you will cry, times when you will cheer and times when you will show hate. You have to read it to see how good it is! I would recommend this series to anyone who is a lover of a thriller and adventure with a good plot that will keep you obsessed! I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 11 or 12. I rate this book and series a 10/10!

    The Fault in Our Stars – John Green:

    ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ is a very, very heartwarming novel and shows just how lucky to not be sick and suffering. This book shows the challenges and triumphs of Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters, battling with illnesses. They fall into a love story and help each other to cope with the hardships and sadness of their deadly illnesses. There is romance and times where you are tearing up or times when you are smiling. There is both times when it is heart-aching and heart-warming. This book is really a worthy read if you love being on a rollercoaster of emotions. Hazel Grace is my favourite character because she is very casual and her character is determined, yet calm and relaxed. She has a very casual vibe about her, even though she could possibly die at any moment. I would recommend this book to the ages of 12+ and I would rate it 8/10. It is also a fabulous movie!

    A Waltz for Matilda – Jackie French:

    I absolutely love ‘A Waltz for Matilda’ by Jackie French. It is a very historic and heartwarming novel that reflects the independence of a young girl named Matilda and the background around the poem ‘Waltzing Matilda’ by Banjo Patterson. This book makes you proud of Australia and the history of Australia becoming its own country. It’s set in the backdrop of early Australia and includes history, independence, a little bit of love and determination in the book. I have re-read this book 3 times and have read all of the books in the series. They are all very heartfelt books and all tell their own story of Australia.
    If you love history and a beautiful novel that you never want to put down…this is your book! I would recommend this book to anyone who is a lover of history, especially the history of Australia at the age of 11+. I rate this book 9/10!

    A Thousand Pieces of You – Claudia Gray:

    I loved ‘A Thousand Pieces of You’ by the New York Times Bestselling author, Claudia Gray. It is a very gripping book and keeps you intrigued throughout the entire novel. There are ups and downs, twists and turns, your heart feels one emotion then another. You will never want to put it down!
    This book is about the main character, Marguerite Caine, and her hunt for revenge for the most likely suspect Paul, for murdering her father. But, as trouble is about to hit him, he leaps into a different dimension, a new land, using Marguerites Physicist Parents latest invention called the Firebird. Marguerite andTheo leap after Paul into a new and amazing dimension, each different, each time. As they jump into dimension after dimension, a different version of Paul appears which questions Marguerite’s decision of revenge and questions her love for Paul. You feel like you are leaping with them in this journey. You have to read it to see how good it is!
    I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a lover of adrenaline or being able to sit down with a book and get lost into a new world until you stop reading and you are left speechless, wondering where you have been. It is truly fabulous… if you are looking for a fresh, new read, this is your book!
    I rate this book 10/10 with not a doubt in my mind!

    I’m so happy that this show exists. It does a great job at bringing foster life to light. There are some fantastic foster families out there, but there are also lots of abuses. This show gives an example of both in a very accurate way. Bravo to the fosters for taking that leap. And bravo to the actors for doing such a fantastic job at playing such emotionally charged roles and doing it so flawlessly.

  90. Wonder:
    I recommend this book for ages 10-12 but any age can read this book even adults. The main character of the book is named August Pullman and he has a facial deformity which he hates because when he walks anywhere in public he gets stared at. I really like this book because you can feel the emotions that the author is trying to express and how hard it would be to be like that. My favorite part of the book is at the start when he describes himself. It is like you are there and you are Auggie and you feel everything. My least favorite part of the book is when the parents of Auggies class mate photo-shop Auggie out of the class photo. If I could change a part of this book i would probably change the part again where the parents photo-shop Auggie. I would instead write about his parents being nice to Auggie and being a good role model for their child. If you like fiction and books that are a little bit sad, then I would definitely recommend this book to you. It is a story that will touch your heart.

    CINDER BY MARISSA MEYER is a fantasy retelling of the fairytale, Cinderella. It is very sci-fi and futuristic but still adapts to the fairytale element. When I first picked up this book I had to shut it quite a few times before I kept reading it, and I was definitely not disappointed. I loved this book because the world was so well developed and the diversity between the characters personalities were set out so well. My favourite part of the book was when Cinder (just like Cinderella) went to the ball! Cinder was not represented as ‘beautiful’ during the scene where she enters in her ball gown. She has grease stains on her gloves and she had just been in the rain. It is so refreshing to the normal story where Cinderella is always beautiful and gorgeous and this scene was so realistic and so human. I can relate to Cinder because I, too, am a horrible dancer and can’t dance one bit. My least favourite part of the book was every part with Adri (Cinder’s stepmother) because she was so horrid to Cinder just because she was a cyborg. I would give this book a 94% and would recommend this book to all fantasy readers and people who enjoy Star Wars.

    I absolutely love this book, I love it because at sometimes it is funny, intriguing and just generally fun to read. My favourite part about the book is how she goes on all these modelling trips to amazing places I think it would just be so much fun to do that and it would be so great to see those places. I don’t think I can really relate to any of the characters in the story because Harriet (the main character) is like two different people she is a model and school girl who struggles to fit in and I don’t think I can relate to that lifestyle. I would defiantly recommend this book to anyone who likes girly kind of books with adventure and romance and anyone who would just like a really good book to read.

    This movie is one of my favourites of all time! It has all the qualities of a great movie! It is hilariously funny, has a bit of romance (which is always good) and it gets better every time you watch it.

So she wants to try out for the boys team but they wouldn’t let her so she decides to pretend to be her brother and get into his college team and beat the team who wouldn’t let her and the girls play. You then sit back and enjoy the hilarious situations she gets herself into!

My favourite character would have to be Mia because I can sort of relate to her in the sense that I am in love with playing an instrument too. This book brought me to tears, but I must say that I liked the movie better. I think that seeing the story come to life on screen made it feel more realistic, and therefore creating more emotion.

The story is about a girl named Katniss, who is forced to fight to the death in the Hunger Games until only one remains. There are 12 districts, and every year one boy and one girl are chosen from each district to go into the arena to fight. My favourite part of this book was (if you haven’t read this book yet, then don’t read this next part!) when Katniss told Peeta to eat the berries to save them both. I think that was a really significant event in the book, as it is the key to the series. I think the type of person that would like this book would be someone who loves a book that keeps you on the edge of your chair dying to know what will happen next. I think also if you like a bit of romance or adventure, this is definitely the book for you. Overall, I rate The Hunger Games a 4/5!

I personally like the first one better although Pitch Perfect 2 is newer and they travel to different places. Only a couple of the actors were different so I was glad because they all suited their character. My favourite character is Fat Amy, she is hilarious.

    Wonder
    I really like this book because it shows that don’t judge people by how they look or what they like. I think everyone should read this book even adults because it teaches a good lesson. You may feel that this book teaches children not to judge books by covers, but, I felt that it teaches children bad lessons. Auggie got special treatment, and was given a medal just for, basically, being disabled. That tells people that disabled/handicapped people are special and different, and should be treated this way. When, in reality, disabled/handicapped people are normal, and shouldn’t be given awards for no reason. “Wonder” also teaches children that, if somebody is a bully, they deserve every shred of hate that is possible for them to receive. Julian was berated mercilessly throughout this book, and Jack said that he would want to KILL HIMSELF if he were Julian!! By the way, my favorite character was Julian. He was the one I could sympathize with the most. If somebody said that they would kill themselves if they were me, and then LAUGHED about it, I would be devastated. Wonder is one of those rare books that makes you want to hug everyone in it so tightly that they’ll have no doubt about how much you love them…and beyond that, it also makes you want to reach out and hug the whole world. It’s an upbeat, humorous, life-affirming story that deserves to be read—and it’s one that may just change its readers, too.

Leisel really wanted to learn how to read so the man that was looking after leisel taught her. her time was a mixture of sadness, scare and happiness.

I love how all the characters had really strong personalities and although the situation the girls still for gave him it turned it to a romantic movie.

    Hunger Games- the movie
    over the holidays I watched all of the hunger games movies and at the end of all of them I was always sitting on the edge of my seat. There are ups and down and there is action every second of the movie. There is love, drama, action and interesting fashion choices. There were many unexpected scenes however once they had occurred it made complete sense.I must admit I had to be fully focused to be able to understand everything which is why I would recommend going over some scenes twice. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone that likes action, mystery, drama and most of all the unexpected.

  139. Cell 7 is a book that I just discovered recently. When Violet is caught standing over a dead body, she is immediately arrested. Violet lives in a dystopian society where the public decides who lives or dies. Essentially, the death penalty is given to anyone who the public votes should die. Each day, the criminal is moved to one of seven prison cells, meanwhile, outside there is a tv show every night, where the public can vote on whether the person should die or not. I love how the author captures Violets emotion. By the end of the book, we find out what really happened that fateful night, leaving us with a cliff hanger you wont stop thinking about. This is a thrilling read, which I would definitely recommend to anyone who loves crime.

  140. The Naturals is by far one of the best book series I have ever read. When 5 teenagers with strange abilities come together, they form an elite team who work for the FBI to solve cold cases. The main character, Cassie Hobbs is a troubled young girl who’s mother was murdered. Personally, I think that the reason Cassie joined the team was actually some sort of personal vendetta to avenge her mother’s death. I love how the author, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, does a terrific job of making sure each and every novel ended with an amazing cliff-hanger that leaves you counting down the days until the next book is released. Since the novels are written quite recently, there are a lot of aspects that a teenager in today’s age can relate to. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves a bit of crime, mystery, and action.

    Author Fred Gipson perfectly captures the time period of Texas in the late 1800’s and the challenges of daily life. Into the mix of chores and adventures on the farm is the universal bond of a boy and his dog. Travis and Old Yeller are two characters that any child or young adult (Like myself) will immediately connect with and grow to love. And like many books made for young kids, the conclusion will remain with you long after the novel has been read. I cried a lot reading this book, it was such a positive lead up to the end, and then everything became very sad. I thought that Travis’ character could have been built on more, as the book was quite directed at the dog and the setting. For a childs book, the ending was a bit too grim. Despite that I think the book was an insightful read and I recommend it to everyone.

    Supergirl (Series of FOX8)
    Supergirl is a very uplifting and addictive tv show, that is hard to stop watching, despite the corniness of many lines. People who are more into dark grim shows, this one is not for you as it is filled to the brim with inspirational speeches and happy endings. The main character Cara Danvers, is a journalist most of the time, but is also Supergirl undercover (Superman’s cousin). I like how each episode has a similar set out, a problem will occur and Cara will solve it with the help of her friends, then at the end of the episode the director has chosen to foreshadow what happens in the next episode, so you are always left wanting more. The storyline continues to build with each episode as well, relationships build up and break apart, the characters learn more about themselves and each other very often as well. Usually there is a plot twist or a surprise reveal every few episodes, which keeps the series interesting. The concept of having aliens on the planet seems daunting and strange, but from watching this series I have become accustomed to the idea of superheroes taking the place of policemen. I give the series a 4 star rating, it would be 5 if it wasn’t occasionally over-the-top optimistic and cliché.

    Beauty by Brian D’amato
    A creepy, pretentious, narcissistic artist and part time alchemist tries to create the perfectly beautiful woman. A dark gloomy insight into the american beauty culture. Set in the 80s art scene of New York, the novel tells the story of the narrator Jamie Angelo who is quite a psychotic man, and his vanity-filled journey of finding flawless beauty. I didn’t really like the book, it was a little to eerie and strange for me, the narrator also came across quite racist and vulgar. Majority of the story’s content was outdated and hard to relate to/understand. The book was also not uplifting at all, but somehow I continued reading simply because I was itching to find out what happened, wether he did construct the ‘perfect’ face in the end. However the novel did present some interesting concepts of our perceptions of beauty, and how beauty trends have evolved with history. I don’t recommend the book as after reading it I felt glum and it was quite boring to read. It is a 2.5 stars for me.

    Director David Yates take you on a dramatic and captivating adventure through his film Tarzan. It is based off the original story, but with more detail, depth and reality. I really appreciated the way the movie exhibited wildlife, and the main character Tarzan’s connectedness with the animals. It presented many interesting notions of living in harmony with animals and nature. Some parts of the movie were quite glum and scary, however this provided a sense of realism. The co-star Margot Robbie, who played Jane, was really great in the movie as she inhibited the sassiness and strength of the original Jane. The setting of the movie in the Congo basin was very beautiful and perfect for the movie too. I was in awe after the movie and it is a 5 stars for me, I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone over the age of 12, who can follow a complex storyline and is fascinated by nature.

    Me before you (Book)
    Jojo Moyes brings two unique characters to life with this book, and as she unwinds their stories of pain, heartbreak, joy and happiness you become more and more captivated. I went from laughing to crying within pages of this book, with every event you become more invested in the characters. The first main character Lou Clark, is a flamboyant, edgy and upbeat British woman, who takes up a job caring for the second main character; Will Traynor, a quadriplegic, cynical, sarcastic yet witty man. The storyline oozes with devastation and romance, and the way it bounces between those two themes leaves you captivates through every page. Some humour in the novel is quite dry so may not be appreciated by all, however I thoroughly enjoyed this book and do recommend it to any young or old adult up for a romance novel. I gave it 4.5 stars. A warning to those planning on reading however, tissues are necessary.

    I really love Chinese Cinderella I think it is a really interesting story, I myself could not imagine living that kind of life at all! I really like how Adeline she stayed strong through the hard times and didn’t let them bring her down. I’m glad that we had to read it for English because I don’t think I would have read it by myself but I would defiantly read it again. My favourite part was when she really started to lose hope but the shilling family came and saved her! My favourite character was defiantly Adeline although she didn’t believe in herself she always believed in her friends. I think I can relate to one of Adeline’s best friends Wu Chun-mei because she doesn’t know about adenines real life until she finds out and when she does she is completely fine with it and understands. I really don’t like the part where PLT dies it is so sad and mean and I still can’t figure out who’s fault it is PLT was Adeline’s best friend and it was just cruel for PLT to die in that way. Overall I would defiantly recommend this book to others I think that anyone that starts reading it won’t be able to stop and will want to follow Adeline’s journey till the end. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good book to read in their spare time or just whenever it is a great book and I hope you think so as well!!

  171. I recommend the novel ‘Glass Sword’, by Victoria Aveyard.
    wow, I was hooked right from the beginning. This book is the sequel to Glass Sword, I knew once reading the first I couldn’t stop there, now I’m hanging on for the third to come out. Glass Sword continues on Mare Barrow’s journey in a hardhearted world where she is in constant danger from the evil clutches of King Maven. In this novel Mare teams up with Cal- the downfallen prince, Farley, Kilorn and a long lost brother and with the combination of her powers, they set out in a hunt for new-bloods in a race for time as Maven is also on the hunt. They gain recruits in hope of building a rebellion stronger than any silver. I found in the last book I didn’t really connect with Mare as much as I did in this one. I really felt I understood her emotions and feelings throughout the book which made me love it so much more. I thought there couldn’t possibly be any more twists or shocks after reading the Red Queen, but I was wrong. Glass Sword included just as much. I think Mare and Cal make such a great couple as they make a great team. I felt absolutely every emotion when reading this book; excitement, shock, love, relief, fear, anger, joy, disgust- name them all. But that is what made the book so interesting and kept me wanting more. I definitely recommend this book to someone who likes books with action- packed adventures combined with drama and betrayal. I rate this book 9/10.

    Life on the refrigerator door:
    When I got the email saying that this book was ready for me to borrow I was so excited!! So many people told me this book was amazing and I truly agree!! This is a heartwarming story about Claire and her mother. They are both really close and are always looking out for each other. Overtime the notes on the refrigerator door start to get more complex and hard to take in but Claire keeps pushing through. This book is such a wonderful story and I feel that it really explains how close family is to you. I really enjoyed reading this book and I would rate it a 9 out of 10!!!!!

    This movie is AMAZING!!!! I absolutely loved it, it was packed with adventure, excitement and magic!! It is based on the story ‘Peter Pan’, which I loved. It still had the same characters but with a slight twist with the character’s names. I loved how Peter was able to turn his whole life around, trying to find his mother. He meets some amazing friends along the way and finds out where his home is and who his family really is. I could watch it over and over and I still wouldn’t get bored. I would definitely rate this movie a 5 out of 5!!!!

    Alice in Wonderland:
    Alice in Wonderland is a story that has so many different movies and books but the one I loved the most would be the cartoon movie. But the book by Lewis Carroll is by far my favourite now!! It again has so many scenes and chapters that you don’t see in the movie and this just makes you want to read even more!! The adventures that you take with Alice is extraordinary and every page has something new and exciting waiting for you to read! Alice is a wonderful little girl that has a love for new things and is very curious. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5, for it’s amazing story!!

    The Wizard of Oz:
    I can’t explain how much I love this book!!!!! I know mostly everyone knows how good the movie is but I don’t actually think that many people have read the original book. I loved every minute while reading this book, because I watched the movie I knew what happened but as I kept reading different chapters and new people started to come into the book which wasn’t in the movie. This book really gave me an insight on what the movie was actually based on and I loved it!!!! Probably everyone thinks the best character would be Dorothy but I think my favourite character would be the scarecrow. He just always seems so happy and although he has no brains, he is very smart but funny at the same time. This book is outstanding and I would rate it a 10 out of 5!!!

    Finding Nemo:
    Finding Nemo would be one of my all time favourites and I am sure many others would agree. It is an incredible story that all ages would enjoy and I believe it has a marvelous storyline. Nemo is my favourite character in this story, he just loves having fun and I always thought he would make the right decisions but i guess I was wrong! This story had so many highlights and fun exciting scenes and that’s why I couldn’t pick out my favourite out of them all! The character that I would relate to the most would probably be Dory. Dory is one of the main characters in this story and I relate to how she is always forgetting things and can’t remember things that just happened!! All ages would love this movie and I would definitely rate this a 5 out of 5!! Finding Nemo is a great movie and is by far one of my favourites!!

  182. One of my favourite tv shows of all time is Friends. It is a tv series based on the lives of 6 friends brought together by events in their life. They all live in New York in apartments and over the 10 seasons we see them switch apartments, have kids, get married and other life impacting decisions are made. My favourite character is Rachel, who when she meets the others she had just left a man at the altar who happened to be rich. Over the series Rachel gets more independent with her own life and it is great to watch how her life unfolds. Friends is a comedy tv show and it is great to watch with family or friends because there are a lot of laughing moments! Overall I would give this show a 9/10 and I would recommend it to people 11+ so they can understand some of the language used.

    Mean Girls- I love the movie Mean Girls!! It’s such a classic for our whole generation and I feel like everyone has seen this movie! This movie has so many funny and relatable parts to it. The ‘plastics’ are a hilarious exaggerated version of some teenage girls. All the characters have had such detail put into their profiles and all have a different back stories in the movie. This movie is a great movie to watch with girlfriends. My favourite character in the movie is Regina George. Her family is so entertaining and funny to watch. I think the end of the movie shows a great valuable message. I defiantly recommend this movie to others and the sequel Mean Girls 2. I wish they made a third! I rate this movie a 9/10.

    Girl Online- I loved the book Girl Online! It was really engaging and the perfect story line for my age group. The book was very recent and the situations and events in the book were realistic to this generation. I originally picked up the book to read because the author is Zoella which is one of my favourite Youtubers. She is a great author and writes in a way that is easy to read yet still has a developed story. My favourite part of the book was when Noah was driving Penny around town and she comforts her after she has a panic attack.This part really made me fall in love with Noah. One of my favourite characters is Elliot. He is so caring and loyal to Penny making him one of my favourites. I defiantly recommend this book to others. It is so engaging, interesting and fun. Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. I would rate this book a 9.5 out of 10.

    Girl on Tour- This book is the second in the series after Girl Online. I was really excited to read this book when I heard it was coming out. I loved Girl online and couldn’t wait to read what happened next with Penny and Noah. I really enjoyed this book. i don’t think it was as good as he first in the series however was still really enjoyable and engaging to read. I think I didn’t like it as much because it was as happy as the first in the series. This book has lots of twists and turns making it really interesting and unpredictable. It also gave a really realistic insight into what it’s like to have a boyfriend that tours the world. I found this really interesting and felt like it was a bonus part to the book. I really recommend this book to others. Overall I really enjoyed and believe other 15 year old girls would too.

    Marley and Me,
    I love this book/movie. It is really heartwarming and funny at times. It is about a couple who have 3 little kids. It is the mum’s, played by Jennifer Aniston, birthday and the husband takes her to this farm where a lady sells lots of labrador pups. All she wanted was a puppy, and the she took her blindfold off, she got to choose which one she wants. They decide to name it Marley and the whole story is based around this dog, Marley and she is very naught. The dog gets taken to puppy school, where she destroyed the toys and got the instructor to the ground. Also they went to a beach that had a sign saying ‘strictly no dogs peeing allowed.’ And of course when Marley gets let off her leash she goes and pees in the beach. There are many other crazy things Marley does throughout the story but near the end she gets really sick and it is very sad. I have watched the movie, no exaggeration, 20 times and I love it very time so I highly recommend it 🙂

    Everest 2015
    I really enjoyed this movie! It was so interesting and the sort of movie that kept you on the edge of your seat. Before watching this movie I never knew much about Mt Everest and climbing the mountain. Watching this movie I learnt so much and it made me so interested in stories of the climbers. This movie was based upon the 1996 disaster. I was so drawn to the movie and stories of the characters that it was all I could think about for days. My favourite part of the movie was when one of the main climbers left for dead survives and returns the camp himself. It was such a great moment in the movie and a happy scene among all of the sad. My favourite character was Rob Hall the guide of the climbers. he was caring and understanding- a character that had such a big heart. I believe an adventures person would like this movie because their are many exciting and tense parts in the movie suited to this type of person. I would defiantly recommend this book to others. I was so great and i’m sure others would enjoy it too.

  190. Titanic
    I love the movie Titanic and I think it is one of the best movies I have ever seen. The movie is based on a true story of a ship which called Titanic in 1912 which sank on the first voyage. I love how the movie is based on a true story but the characters are fake because it adds a lot of creativity to the story. I love the relationship between Jack and Rose. It’s great how they fell in love from being in 2 different classes on the ship. I would recommend this book to people over 12 because you need to have some understanding of the history of the ship. Overall I loved the movie and I have watched it many times. I would rate it a 9.5/10.

    We are reading this book for school this term and I love it! It is a story based on two 16 year old girls; Rosie and Nona. When they were little, they were always together and were like sisters. At the age of 9, Nona moved away with her mum and they didn’t see each other for a long time after that. When they were both 16, in 2008, Nona moved to Rosie’s school. Rosie was so happy to see Nona but when she arrived she was ignoring Nona and being very rude to her. Inside, she did want to talk to her but she did not want Selena, her bossy friend, to know she knew Nona. Selena and her older brother Nick, who are brought up in a racist family, make fun of Nona and Rosie wants to help Nona but can’t. Rosie gets with Nick and everyone is trying to tell her how racist he is an dot stay away from him. She fades away from some koi her friends because of him but near the end of the book she realises how bad Nick is, breaks up with him and reconciles with Nona and Anya. At the end, Nona has a baby and names it Rosie after her, which shows that they are closer than ever. I love that book heaps and it says a lot about Indigenous and Non-Indigenous relationships back in the day. I really recommend it to anyone!

    Ruby Redfort- Take your last breath
    I really enjoyed this book! It had lots of action and was the type of book you didn’t want to put down. The main character Ruby is really interesting and unique making the book different to others and something I wasn’t used to reading. The book was an easy read yet the story was still very age appropriate.
    My favourite part of the book was defiantly the last quarter. This is when the rest of the story was all unfolding and revealing all the answers to mysteries along the way. This part of the book was gripping and was all I could think about until the book was finished.
    My favourite character was Hitch. He was so loyal, down to earth and always seemed to show up just in time.
    My least favourite part of the book was the start. The author took a while to start the main events in the story making it slightly boring reading the first few chapters.
    I defiantly recommend this book to others. Overall it is really enjoyable and captivating.

    The fault in our stars is a great book/movie. The book and the movie versions are different in someways. It is a truly touching and very sad story. It is based on two people. Augustus (“Gus”) and Hazel. They both have different types of cancer and could den any time soon. They meet each other at a club they go to and express their feelings. Gus and Hazel begin to grow closer and closer and they end up becoming a couple after a while. They are very adventurous because they want to make the most of lives, not knowing how long they each have left to live. They share lots of bad and good experiences together throughout the story. One of the things they do is travel to Amsterdam to meet Hazel’s inspiration Peter Van Houten, who is an author. When they get there, they realise he is just a drunken man who is rude and doesn’t care about them. At the end something very sad happens, but I can’t spoil it. If you are into tearjerker and heartwarming things this is for you!

    This movie is a very long very heartfelt movie that makes you believe in love. I loved this movie because I really felt part of the movie and the script was written so well you felt so connected to each of the characters and shouted at them through the TV as if you knew them. My favourite character in Titanic was obviously Jack Dawson (Played by Leo Di Caprio) I loved how carefree and yet caring Jack and I adored his friendship with Fabrizio. Jack wasn’t one of those rich horrible men who disrespected women, but rather a poor young man who respected women and was patient. He didn’t have a lot but what he did have he cherished. My favourite part was after the posh dinner with Rose’s side of the family when they went down into the bunkers where all the poor people who couldn’t afford rooms stayed. This scene was a really beautiful to watch Rose and Jack bond and dance, and Rose see all the people that mattered to Jack. I recommend this movie to anyone who has the time to watch a 3 hour long movie!!!!! You won’t regret passing the time!!

    THIS MOVIE IS MY FAVOURITE MOVIE EVER. Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum were couple/friendship goals in this movie. The reason I loved this movie so much was because it was a romantic comedy and it really highlighted the fact of what a girl can do. Viola (Bynes) courageously stood up to her sexist coach and boyfriend when being denied the right to play a soccer game because ‘girls aren’t as good as boys’ From behind the scenes we see Viola pursue her dreams even if it means going undercover as a male to challenge her ex-boyfriends soccer team through her brothers school. I found this movie really inspiring and a movie that you could watch 1,000,000 times and not get sick of it. This movie really shows the power and determination of a women and makes me believe that anyone can achieve anything if you pursue and persist in yourself and your dreams.

I love how in depth the creators went when making this movie because you really felt like you’re part of the story and you become really connected to all the characters. my favourite character in this movie has to be Princess Fiona, Puss and Donkey! I loved all those character from different reasons. Princess Fiona was so careful and considerate of others that made you love her so much, Puss in boots was a really a meaningful character looking back on it now. Even though he was a cat and considered weak nowadays he defied the rules and became a really strong a feared character. Meanwhile Donkey was that character who just broke up all the drama with some casual comedy and humour. What’s not to love about these characters?? My favourite part of this movie was when Shrek, Fiona and Donkey all became humans and then towards to end of the spell they chose to become themselves again, I love this part of the movie because even when they could’ve been human and been ordinary they choose not to and remain themselves because they feel in love with the ogre within each other. Really beautiful movie and I highly recommend this to people of all ages.

    The Apartment is a book based on the lives of 4 young women living in a shared apartment. During the book each woman experiences highs and lows which she must face and I found it a really enjoyable book to read and I almost couldn’t put the book down! My favourite character was Sasha, she was an OB/GYN doctor at the New York Hospital. Her career is very interesting and I loved hearing what happened next in her life. Some of the challenges the girls faced were job loses, relationship troubles and work place dramas. I found that this book will relate to many young women’s lives in the future so it was a fascinating book to read. The author Danielle Steel has written this book well so that I believe it would be appropriate for girls 13+ to read because their is some language children won’t understand. It would even be great for adults! I loved this book and I wished there would be a second book written about the same girls, I rated this book a 9/10.

Rosie faces challenges and pressure to fit in at school by her new best friend Selena and her boy friend Nick. But when Rosie’s Aboriginal sister joins Rosie’s school everything changes. Will Rosie choose popularity over her family? This is a fantastic book and it can relate to most people which makes it an interesting book to read. I loved the character Rosie because she shows us that family is important. I would rate this book a 9/10.

I least favorite part of the movie would have to be the death of Mufasa. This scene was heartbreaking to watch and my emotions ran high. This movie is a must watch kind of film that I believe every person who has watched with will agree with me by saying this is a classic Disney movie that has my recommendation to watch this!!!!

    Blended is a hilarious movie that makes you laugh for the whole time (for me that was the actual situation, I just could not help myself from laughing for the whole movie) I loved this movie, there was nothing bad about it…it was:
    >funny and enjoyable
    >adventurous and a bit romantic
    >exciting and extraordinary
    >interesting and adventurous
    those are only a few words that I would use to describe the movie blended (I could honestly go on for ever and ever)
    The movie shows these two people falling in love and might even say that they become blended. The characters are all hilarious and all make you laugh, I honestly could never choose one favourite character (it would just be so hard since they are all so funny and interesting) All of the characters have their little moments in the movie where you think to yourself: this character is my favourite. However, just when say that the next character does something and you think to yourself: now this character is my favourite.
    I absolutely loved the movie and truth be told any movie with Adam Sandler or Drew Barrymore in it is just too funny to describe.

    I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes to have a laugh

Annie is just this young girl but she has a bigger heart than anyone in the whole World. One of the things that I find very interesting about the characters is that Annie is the child and yet she teaches so many new things to the adults in the movie, she changes everyones life forever (most of the characters are happy about what she does but some of them are…)

    I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves a little adventure, music, and happiness

    Annie is a greta movie for both children and adults.

  219. Nona & Me
    Nona & Me is a fantastic book! My favourite part of the book was when Rosie saw Nona enter the classroom, and she didn’t react or greet her, this was my favourite part because it said so much about who Rosie was as a character, and it gave a sneak peak of what was to come. My favourite character was Rosie, even thought i did’t agree with her actions all the time. I can’t relate to any characters in this book, as i haven’t really experienced any situation like that. My least favourite part of the book was when Rosie found out about the graffiti, (no spoilers) and who did it. This was very sad!! I would definitely recommend the book to others, anyone and everyone!!

  221. Girl Missing – By Sophie Mckenzie

    I love, love, LOVE Girl Missing!!! Girl missing is thrilling and sometimes leaves you on cliff hangers. I like Lauren as a character in this book because she is not afraid to go after what she wants and when every thing falls apart she learns that she loves what was right in front of her the whole time.

    When you are reading the book you can already start to imagine what the characters look like in your head and when reading the scenes it makes reading it better because you can imagine it happening.

    I can’t wait to read the other two books I can only imagine that they are just as good as the first one. I completely recommend this book to anyone that is interested.

Hazel has thyroid cancer and Augustus (Gus) has osteosarcoma. They both do not know how long they have to live whether it is a few hours or a few years. Hazel and Gus become a couple and spend most of their time together. They go to Amsterdam together to meet Hazel’s biggest inspiration Peter Van Houten who is an author. But when they get there, They are both so upset to find out that he is just an alcoholic who abused them both about their cancer. The book/movie ends with a very sad tragedy and it is so inspiring and touching.

  224. Hunger Games:
    I recently read this book and instantly fell in love with it! I read the whole series within a week! This gripping novel captures you from the start, and once you start, there is no going back. The story is about a girl named Katniss, who is forced to fight to the death in the Hunger Games until only one remains. There are 12 districts, and every year one boy and one girl are chosen from each district to go into the arena to fight. My favourite part of this book was (if you haven’t read this book yet, then don’t read this next part!) when Katniss told Peeta to eat the berries to save them both. I think that was a really significant event in the book, as it is the key to the series. I think the type of person that would like this book would be someone who loves a book that keeps you on the edge of your chair dying to know what will happen next. I think also if you like a bit of romance or adventure, this is definitely the book for you. Overall, I rate The Hunger Games a 4/5!

    This has got to be one of the greatest movies of all time! The movie is filled with love, romance, music and comedy! The movie is all about a nanny who goes to a the Von Trapp house to ‘nanny’ the von trapp kids. This movie is based around Maria, played by Julie Andrews and the Von Trapp family singers including Leisel, Gretl, Brigitta, Friedrich, Louisa, Marta and kurt. The reason I loved this movie so much is because the music in the film was absolutely breathtaking and you couldn’t help but sing along to each and every song and wish you had a voice like Maria. I also really loved the plot of the film, I found it really easy to understand and also really hard to look away. My least favourite part was when Maria leaves the von Trapp family because of an unknown and uncomfortable feeling inside her stomach. This movie is such an amazing award winning movie that I would recommend to anyone! I rate is 5/5!!!!

    I thought this movie was really inspirational because it was all about a boy who wanted to go to the olympics, his dream was to one day compete. He had so many set backs like, how he was not very athletic and his parents and everyone was telling him that he would never make it.
    He was determined and he made it. he tried so hard and got everyone on his side. He finally got there and came last. It might sound like a bad ending but it was great! he was the only person to compete and get a great score for England. I love this movie and i would recommend it to families.

One of my favourite part of the book is that whenever one question is answered another question comes into the story. All of the mysteries and lies, make the book so exciting and make you want to keep on reading. Whenever I am up to the chapter where I have to stop reading I almost want to cry. I never ever want to put this book down. I really like Lauren, she’s probably my favourite character. the way that she is so determined to find everything out without even knowing what might happen. That is what I call brave. This book is never boring, there is always something happening. When is say all of the time I really mean all of the time, there is never a part in the book where I get bored and all of the characters make it even better. The personalities are great. All of the characters are a little bit different and sometimes odd but that just makes everything better. The characters are all so important and I personally think that ven if just one of the character was not in the book there would be a part of the book missing. I love everything about this book and I would definitely recommend it to everyone who loves an interesting and mysterious book.

    My cousin has been nagging me to watch terminator with her for months, and I finally did on the weekend and it is my favourite movie at the moment now!! It started off looking a bit questionable and old fashioned, but once it finished I was so enthralled we watched the second one too!! My favourite character is obviously the terminator himself, because I think Arnold Schwarzenegger is an amazing actor and at times you could forget he is actually a human actor and not a robot as he is portraying. I loved how he had everything planned and was always so calm even while fighting. There was only one slightly inappropriate scene for young children I can remember, but apart from that it is a great watch for anyone who enjoys action thrillers and doesn’t mind a lot of killing and gore.

    This is the first James Bond movie I have ever watched (yes unbelievable I know) but now I am hooked! It was such a thrilling movie, the storyline wasn’t exactly the best but the graphics and stunts made it a great watch!! My favourite bit was the opening fight scene atop a moving train, a typical action movie scene but one of the best I’ve seen! One thing I didn’t like was how some people ‘died’ but then somehow got out of an impossible situation and were fine, and there was no explanation of how they did this! Apart from the few loose ends left unattended, it was a movie which didn’t lose my attention and I would definitely recommend to watch it, especially if you like action films similar to the Jason Bourne films. I watched it with my family and it was appropriate and entertaining for all (even for my 10 year old brother!!). I rate Skyfall a 8/10 and it would have been higher if the storyline was a bit more smooth flowing.

  257. The boy in the striped pyjamas:

    The boy in the striped pyjamas is a holocaust movie set in the heart of WW2 based on the best selling novel written by John Boyne. The movie is about two young boys who flourish a friendship in the most unusual circumstance. The movie showcases the idea that even from completely different lives friendship and hope will always shine through. The movie is about Bruno and Shmuel, two boys from ‘opposite sides’ of the fence of Auschwitz, a death camp for Jews. I didn’t really have a favourite scene in the movie because it all was very insightful and moving. My favourite character in the movie was probably Bruno. He was so young and adventurous and that related to my childhood. This movie is a real suspenseful and honest movie that brought me to tears (in a good way) the movie perfectly shows how hope and friendship is a really precious thing and also illustrates how dangerous living in Germany was at the time. I recommend this movie to anyone over 10. Because it have very mature scenes. This movie is very insightful and won’t be a movie that you’ll be disappointed in.

The reason I loved this movie was just how light-hearted and amusing is was to watch. It is one of those movies where the actions as well as the script make every scene entertaining and comedic. My favourite character was definitely Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart) he has the ability to make every single scene that he was in interesting, by the way he would overreact to everything and respond with a hilarious line. Even when there was a serious scene, you’ll just know that someone would say something out of the blue to make you crack up. I would HIGHLY recommend this movie to anyone. From what I recall it rarely has any swear words in it and also targets the older generations as well as the younger. Anyone who just loves to have a good laugh would definitely love this movie and I strongly urge you to watch Central Intelligence in the future. You won’t regret it!

One of my favourite things about this show is that you have to do some thinking for yourself… Pretty little liars is based on this cyber bully “A” that claims to know all of the girls secrets and “A” will use these secrets to make the girls do terrible things. All throughout the series I thought it was so great that I was able to try and guess myself who is “A”. There are 5 main characters in the book all with their own different personalities; Hanna, Spencer, Aria, Emily and Ally.

  260. Criminal Minds:

    This. Is. My. Favourite. TV. Show! I love the thrill and stomach jumps I get when I watch each episode, and how I always seem to watch just 1 more episode which I said 7 episodes ago. This tv show is all about a special forensic FBI team called the BAU, starring main protagonists including – Spencer Reid, Derek Morgan, Aaron Hotchner, Penelope Garcia, Jennifer Jareau and Emily prentiss. The main goal that sets every episode is that a crime story has been introduced to the BAU from local police stations (Behavioral Analysis Unit) that has become so difficult to find the culprit that they call in the FBI to handle the case. Even better about this show is that the bau is different from any team. The BAU analyses the movements, the individual itself and past backgrounds of the criminal so they can predict what they’re thinking to prevent another crime scene. With the mix of criminology and humour, the show is such a nail bitter and thriller that I can unfortunately say. That I can’t live without. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is age appropriate enough to look at crime scenes (censored). Such an amazing tv show YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED!

  261. I’ll Give You the Sun written by Jandy Nelson
    I’ll Give You The Sun would have to be one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s a story of the relationship between Noah and Jude who are twins and are very close. They’ve always been best friends and have been able to share everything with each other. But tragedy manages to pull their strong bond apart and soon after they barely know each other. Jandy Nelson has written this radiant novel in a very cleaver way where you hear the story in the point of view of both Noah and Jude. You learn to love both characters throughout the novel and see their stories intertwine as they try to mend their broken relationship. My favourite character would have to be Noah as I found his process of thought to be quite relatable. I rate “I’ll Give You The Sun” a 9/10 as it can be quite sad at times however I struggled to put the book down. This novel surrounding themes of romance and family is a beautiful, easy read that I recommend to people of all ages, I hope you love it as much as I did.

    I highly recommend this TV series to anyone and everyone. The characters are so well created and the plot, although it is detailed and surprising, it is easy to follow. I was hooked on the show from the first couple of episodes! The show will have you crying, laughing and cheering and you don’t even need to get out of bed! All of Clarke’s experiences are captivating and the whole series in general is amazing. It will make you wish you were in the show and you will want to always be watching it, its a catch! I would rate it a 10/10 and I can’t wait for the next season to come out, I highly recommend it to anyone.

  264. Twilight (1st)
    I loved the book Twilight, but I loved the movie more! The movie was a mix of romance, thriller and comedy. I absolutely loved this movie because it was a movie that aimed to please 14-18 year olds and they had Robert Pattinson in it 🙂 The movie is about a 17 year old Vampire Edward Cullen (who is actually 108) and Bella Swan who fall in love under strange circumstances, they will go through extremely difficult hardships which will undoubtedly bring them closer together. My favourite scene in the movie is when Edward saves Bella from being hit by the out of control car by stopping it with this hand. My favourite character is obviously Edward Cullen. He is gorgeous, well-mannered, charming and a dangerous man who you cannot fall in love with when you watch this movie. My least favourite scene is the scene when Edward pushes Bella protectively into the piano accidentally to protect her from Jasper. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone in their teens who loves chick flicks, comedies, slight romance and a thriller. This is a great movie to any who watches it. 5/5!

    The Subtle Knife, Philip Pullman (book 2 of the Dark Materials Series)
    This book is set immediately after Northern Lights, where Lyra runs into a boy named Will, who surprise, surprise becomes the next protagonist, and without spoiling too much of the first book, they are hurtled into an parallel universe, where they are forced to work together to achieve a somewhat similar goal. Before I say anything else, not only will this be a ‘freshly finished book rant’ but a ‘rage rant’.
    The first book was good. I liked it. It had a decent plot, developed characters and an amazing concept behind it. The second book? I only finished it because I am not one to quit reading something. This book felt as if Pullman was forced to write it with a gun put to his head. Dialogue; is unnatural and lacking. Descriptions; lengthy and unnecessary. Plot; lame and slow moving. Everything that I somewhat enjoyed in the first book was completely ripped to shreds.
    I can live with a lacking plot and lengthy descriptions, but I will not tolerate unnatural dialogue. Throughout the book it went a little like this.
    Character 1: “How are you? How was the weather in London? Did you buy any apples?”
    Character 2: “I am great. I looked to the sky at about 4:oo pm and I saw clouds, but it did not rain. I bought six big, round, red apples. How about you? How was the weather in New York? Did you buy any bananas?… ” ect.
    Now I can understand that this may have been a ‘replication’ of formal 19th century speak, but if anything made me frustrated and left me skimming over decent sections of speech – one character might speak uninterrupted for a good full two pages (sigh).
    Now without spoiling the ending I just want to say how disappointing and empty it was for the (minimal) development of characters and plot. I give this book 1/5, would not recommend.

    The honest truth- This book is about a boy who is suffering with cancer who has a dream to go to this incredible mountain. After years of on and off he has had enough of the treatments when he decides to run to climb this mountain and take his last breath.

He calls her and tells her not to tell anyone and she has to make the hardest decision of her life tell no one and maybe get caught and have his parents hate her or tells his parents and have him hate her!!! The author uses very good vocabulary and sets out the chapters very well by having on chapter about marks adventure and then the next the family and friends facing what to do next and on and on. YOU NEED TO READ THIS I love the book as soon as i read the blurb

Each chapter is about a different character telling there side of the story (main idea) which keeps you really intrigued. My favourite part was reading Auggies chapter it really taught me what some people could be dealing when they have a disability or are getting bullied. There are so many scenes in this book that really stand out to me like when theres a huge fight at a movie night but i wont say anymore GO CHECK IT OUT! trust me you will love this book 🙂

I would recommend this movie for anyone over the age of 13, I say this because the movie does contain some gross scenes but if your over 13 you should be more then muture enough to watch the content. I really like the story line for this movie as it taught me something that; You don’t need electronics to have fun as long as you have family, friends and the outdoors! I really like this story line because it is also a good fable which after watching I tried to apple the moral to my life.

  286. GREAT NORTH ROAD by Peter F. Hamilton

    This Sci-Fi novel is set a century from now in which modern technology had improved so dramatically that light speed travel had been achieved, humanity had solved the problem of energy shortages, cleaned up the environment and has began colonising other planets. They main factor to humanities success was due to the North family, a very successful and well renown family made of generations of clones. Though not identical, genetic variations and mutations had crept in to each new generations. The 3 first generation brother had gone their separate ways. After a murder of an unidentified North clone found in the Newcastle river, Detective Sidney Hurst in set of a long and winding journey were he finds his case becoming eerily similar to a previous slaughter at a North household some years before. Angela Tramelo, the convicted killer of this previous case has claimed her innocence for years, and it now seems as if she was right. Only how she claims they all were killed is obscure for Sidney to understand. Aliens.
    It took me a while to read, as it’s over 500,000 words with the spine of the book being thicker then my head, I loved it. It felt like a series of books that had been put into one. New and exciting characters were brought forward with every step forward in the book, leaving you second guessing the ending. If you don’t like Science Fiction then this possibly isn’t the book for you. You need commitment and a fairly open mind and ability to understand basic scientific wording and theories to recognise the humour to the ‘Great North Road’. I believe it was well worth the trek to read it. It’s possibly suitable for people 16+ years just because of the topics covered in it. I’d rate it 4/5 🙂

She decides to follow her ambitions leaving her fragile mother and strong-willed sister back at Ireland. In America she experiences love and independence. But she is then told news from back in Ireland, that may impact how she saw her future playing out.
    I didn’t think I would like this book, but I did. It was one of those books you just couldn’t put down because it was written in a fantastic way that meant you couldn’t read it chapter by chapter. A chapter never felt truly finished unless you read on into the next one. And then this lead to the entire book being completed in one night. It’s a different look on a coming of age story from the point of a view of a women who was finding herself after World War 2.
    I’d recommend this book to anyone interested in the early 50’s. It would be suitable for people over 13+ years, as there are a few parts that some might view as ‘inappropriate’ to young readers. I’d recommend it 3.5/5 🙂

From simple collectible christmas items, to snowed in trains, to the small town waffle house, to the national chain Starbucks, ‘Let it Snow’ has everything to cover all your reading needs. Falling for a complete stranger, falling for your closet friend, falling again for a previous flame.
    I loved this book not just because it had that classic nostalgic ‘movie’ feeling such as ‘Love Actually’ and ‘Valentines day’. But I found it an extremely easy book to read. More often then not if I’m going to read a book it’s to relax and just not have to think that much. So when a novel offers you an easy read, that doesn’t bore you to death, then it’s a winner in my eyes! The only problem with it is it isn’t long enough! I’d recommend ‘Let it Snow’ to anyone who has read any of these amazing authors works before, or to anyone 13+ years. I would rate it 4.5/5.

The style it is written in is a lot like ‘Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy’, with intriguing descriptions of common mundane events, mixed in with deeper philosophical exploration of what it really means to be alive. If you’re up for a fun read that will leave you thinking, then this is a great book to go for. Definitely in my top 3.

  290. EVERY MAN IN THIS VILLAGE IS A LIAR by Megan Stack

    This memoir follows the life of the young female reporter Megan Stack as she encounters the shattering effect of war head on after the 9/11 World Trade Centre tragedy that hit America in 2001. As she is thrust into Middle Eastern countries to report on the conflict at hand, she witnesses pain along with humanity in a different light to what she once thought to be true about the world.
    To be perfectly honest I found this book incredibly hard to read. At some points Stack would be very blunt with her descriptions on events in the book, and then follow up those blunt points with over the top recounting that seem to want to be overly poetic. Which I personally thought were not needed. The too different wording styles got annoying after the first couple of chapters, making it difficult to continue the memoir to the end.
    As this is a school book for year 12 i’d recommend this to those of 16+ years as you really need a good understanding of the world to understand what is going on. I’d rate it 2/5.

    I love this movie so much. It is definitely a movie I recommend if you like fun and crazy people. When you hear that Adam Sandler is the writer of a movie you can be sure that you will get what you expect; a grossly over-the-top and tasteless film.”Grown Ups 2″ is a movie that will appeal to anyone but a grown up. The sight gags are frequent and foul throughout this mildly funny movie. I tried to figure out what the plot of the film was, but I left stumped. With nothing substantial in content other than Sandler’s character doesn’t want more kids and by film’s end finds out that his wife is pregnant, the only substance is the sick pranks, jokes and gags that endlessly go on and on. Due to the content listed below, we do not consider this to be a family film. I rate this movie a 8 out of 10.

    this is a disney movie and i love disney. this movie is about 4 kids who have evil parents, they have to go to a normal school in the normal world. there mission is to steal the magic wand that the fairy god mother has. they also have to pretend that they are good and are trying to fit in. the ending is so good but you need to go and watch it to find out what happens. my favourite part is when the mum of the main character comes alive in the museums and she sings a song. this part is so funny and relatable. i would give it a 7 out of 10 because it was good. i would recommend it to people who like disney because it will make a lot of more sense to the fans. also younger people

    X-Men Apocalypse (movie review)
    I am a huge Marvel fan, especially for the pre-X-men universe movies (starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jenifer Lawrence) so I was especially excited for Apocalypse. Set years after ‘Days of Future Past’, worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilization, an immortal and powerful mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) awakens after thousands of years. He recruits four misled mutants, including Magneto (Fassbender) and other mutants to create a new world order. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Professor X (McAvoy) and Raven (Lawrence) lead a team of young X-Men to stop their seemingly invincible nemesis from destroying mankind.

    The film is bright and fast paced, bringing all of my favourites back together, while keeping it light hearted and humorous and no shortage of amazing action scenes. I found that in a whole this movie had some minor plot holes and was quite confusing/predictable at times, while when looking closely at individual scenes it was both enjoyable and interesting. For Marvel fans there is no shortage of connections to past and present movies/comics, while not being too over the top. This movie is a great stand alone for people who haven’t been able to watch the other films or read the comics, but these hidden jokes are a real gem. Sophie Turner (playing the character Jean Grey) does a great job of coming into the franchise and gives an amazing performance, while other new actors such as The Sheridan (Cyclops) and Alexandra Shipp (Storm), produce just as good performances. All in all this movie was quite enjoyable and a great joy to watch. I give the movie 3.5/5.

    Choose your own ever after, A hot cold summer by Nova Weetman.
    This book is a choose your own path type of book. It is so interesting as you can see the story in lots of different ways. This book has two blurbs for each story you would like to start at. The book you practically get to choose your decisions and theres more you get to choose through the book! These sort of book are a bit more dramatic and surprising, this book I give a 9/10. There are decisions to make throughout the book like, should she go on a holiday with her mum and a boy she used to like or with her dad and his new girlfriend. Once you finish a story, you can go back and read the book again only at a different perspective.

    Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, Will used to be active. He used to be successful. He used to be a lot of things. Two years ago, everything changed for him. Now, he is stuck in a wheel chair. He is a quadriplegic with no real hope at recovery. Lou just lost her job as a waitress and is looking for work. After a few failed attempts at random jobs, she gets placed as a carer. Will’s mother is looking for someone to lift Will’s spirits, and Lou is hired to help Will out and be his companion for six months.

    I was expecting big things from this book. The very trailer for the movie had me in tears, so I was anxious to read this before I saw the movie. What I got was what I expected and every bit emotional (at times), but also what I didn’t. I found at times, I couldn’t give a damn. I fought hard to care for the characters and themes outside of the ‘love story’, I really did, but I found I couldn’t connect to any of the characters. Lou was at times self centred and petty, while her family were merely chapter fillers, and difficult to like. While I didn’t love it, I sure couldn’t have given it anything less then 3 stars. It certainly left me ‘charmed’ for sections of the book, and the chemistry between Lou and Will is something else, and beautifully written, but what was enjoyable was also scarce, leaving me unsatisfied and somewhat angry. Although, if anything, you stick around for the ‘love story’ like me, you will not be disappointed.

I would recommend this movie for others because once you watched it, you would want to watch it over and over again. I rate this movie an 8 and a half out of 10.

    Deadpool

    I went to see the movie Deadpool with my friends, and we all enjoyed this movie a lot. It was a great combination of comedy and action, and I would watch it again. My favourite character was of course Deadpool himself, because he was cheeky and never took anything seriously. My favourite part was when he went to get transformed, and he was stuck in an oxygen tank and caused it to explode. I didn’t like it how he was ashamed to show himself to his girlfriend after his transformation, because it caused so many problems throughout the film and they almost lost contact with each other. I would recommend this movie to everyone aged 15+ who likes a good laugh and some fast paced action, but there are a few inappropriate scenes and quite a lot of rude language so not a good movie for children, and overall I give it a 9/10.

    Coraline is by far the strangest movie I have ever seen. Even though it was good it still gave me chills in some parts.

My favourite character was Coraline because she didn’t stop saving the ghosts even though it was really hard.

    Love Aubrey – Book

    I liked the book although it’s so sad and I would rather that it was just a bit happier. I liked two parts in the book the first was when Aubrey got a fish, she felt like she had a friend. The second part I liked was when she met the girl next door, Bridget and they became friends just when Aubrey needed some one to really be able to talk too. At least when she is with her grandma and Bridget’s family, who are her neighbours, she feels included, happy and loved.

    Although Aubrey has hard times and sad moments it is well worth reading and your guaranteed to cry as she stays in your heart. I was glad in the end every thing worked out but it left me wondering about some questions at the end of the book. I would definitely recommend this book! You won’t be able to put it down!!

It’s a story of friendship, adventure, fantasy and drama. A short journey would well and truly lead you into a world full of mythical creatures. At times, you really feel like you are actually there, or at least you wish you were there in such a mysterious place of wonder and fantasy.

    This is a book of sadness, wonder and adventure.

But just as he thought he had fought the cancer, it happened to come back. He decides he’s had enough of hospitals and treatments so he runs away from it all with his dog along side him, with a big plan of climbing to the top of Mount Rainier, even if it’s the last thing he does.
    As I got into this book it just gets more heartbreaking than the earlier chapters but it’s definitely worth the tears!

  334. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas – Book

    I have recently finished reading the book ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ and was amazed about how third world countries or different religions are treated. This book was set in Germany WW11 and is about a nine year old boy called Bruno and his family. Bruno’s family was very wealthy as his father was the German Commander. They lived in a 5 story house in Berlin and had serval maids and chefs. Bruno loved life in Berlin as he had many friends and knew lots of people in the community. Bruno was heartbroken when he found out that his father had to move to another place far from Berlin and Bruno and his family have to move as well. When they arrived at the Out-With Bruno realised that it was nothing like Berlin, there were no children to play with, there were no shops and cafes and there was a massive wire fence separating Bruno from the other side. The fence continued as far as Bruno could see and he always wondered why it was there. One day Bruno explored the wire fence and came across a boy on the other side of the fence. Bruno introduced himself and so did the other boy called Shmuel. Bruno noticed everyone on the other side of the fence was wearing the same clothes that looked like striped pyjamas. Bruno didn’t understand why everyone was wearing striped pyjamas and why they were on that side of the fence. He could see soldiers ordering the striped people around and guns being fired. Bruno asked why and how Shmuel got there but you have to read the book to find out. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy reading out the olden days, how the world use to be ruled and what happened to the Jews. It is a very sad story that will be very hard to forget. This book is also a movie which is a bonus!!! Check out the book today and read the second book called the ‘Boy on the Top of the Mountain.’

    If I Stay is a amazing book turn movie and I have to say they are both just as good as each other. I had heard of this book from some of my friends that recommend to watch it but they warned me that it is a heartbreaker. It’s about a shy girl called Mia Hall (Chloe Grace Moretz) who is an amazing Cellist and one day dreams to preform at Juilliard. Suddenly Mia’s life flashes before her eyes and has to make the most difficult decision to chose between life or death. My favourite character is Mia as she is very relatable and shy but outgoing. Mia’s boyfriend is the most popular guy at school and is in a very serious but crazy rock band but they have to chose whether to stay together or go their separate ways and follow their music dreams. This book and movie is very emotional and will probably bring a few tears to the eyes. I would not like to be in Mia’s position to chose whether to stay or go as it would be such a difficult choice. This book has a squeal called ‘Where She Went’ so make sure to check that out once you have read this fantastic book!!

    The main character in this book is Felicity Pickle,in this book she collects words,words people that are thinking about,or words they want. Or words there not even thinking about.
    Felicity travelled all over the country with her Mum and her little sister,but there was one word she had never seen “home”.
    Felicity was tired of travelling home to home being in places that she has been picked on until she moves to Midnight Gulch and she thinks her luck is going to change making new friends for the first time.
    And that’s because Midnight Gulch used to be magical,until a curse came to Midnight Gulch!
    This book is great for everyone,I really enjoyed this book and I think you will too!!!!!!

    I love the book and movie paper towns. I like the movie more than the book because i can see the book come to life. I love the detail and the adventure in the book. I found that the author is trying to say follow your dreams because Quentin didn’t go to graduation because he wanted to find Margo. I recommend this book to adventure and romance lovers!!!

  351. Daddy’s Home
    Daddy’s Home is a hilarious movie about stepdad vs dad.
    It is hilarious to watch as the dads battle it out to win the kid’s approval. There is drama, humour, fun, excitement and confusion as the main characters, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg take us on an extremely funny journey. I would definitely recommend this to everyone of any age.

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
    I have just finished reading the first book and I loved it! I think that I loved it because it was funny and interesting to see the things that were going to happen When Greg Heffley suddenly turns less popular than his side kick Rowley Jefferson they say that they aren’t friends but of course they turn out to be friends again.
    My favourite part in the book was when Greg’s older brother woke him up in the middle of the night and said it was his first day of school so he was rushing around when his dad came down and told him it was 4 am in the morning and he had woken hiss brother up. I liked this part because there was a lot of action but it was funny at the same time.
    My favourite character was Rowley Jefferson because he still said things like he was in Primary school and he agrees to anything; even if it is dangerous!
    If I could change something in the book it would be to include more girls because Greg says he likes them but their is only a few in the book
    I would recommend this book to anyone even if you don’t thing you would like it because I didn’t think I would like it but I was promised I would and guess what; I did.
    I think anyone would like this book because it is funny, has action and adventure.

    I really enjoyed this book because it is a sad, happy and interesting book. It is about a young boy who is curious about his grandmothers childhood when she was apart of the War in Germany 1945. She was inside when all of the bombs went off and then the next thing she sees there is a Elephant in her garden because a bomb went off in the Zoo. So the end up running away with the Elephant from the Russians. My favourite part as when they saw the Elephant in their garden and kept it safe. My favourite character is the grandmother because she was caring an kind towards the elephant. My least favourite part is when the Russians start bombing the town and when all of the building collapse. I would recommend this book to those who like this sort of stuff and who are 11+.

My least favourite part is when her mum cries, she cries all of the time but it is just a sad thing. I would change the part where she is always forced to go see a therapist because you want to go to one not be forced to. I would recommend this book to those who like or can handle sad book and those who are 12+.

  361. Looking for Alaska, by John Green.

    This book is funny and heartbreaking, it may bring a tear to your eye. It is about a guy called Miles and his life is pretty boring, until he goes to college and meets this wild girl called Alaska. She’s pretty, smart and a little screwed up. They have adventures together and are in the same class for most subjects. One day, she gets angry, jumps in her car and speeds off, ending up in a Fatal car incident leaving Miles and his roommate heart broken. My favourite part is their adventures and all of the funny stuff they do together. My favourite character is Alaska because she is brave and funny and by the sounds always has a smile on her face. My least favourite part is when she dies, that nearly made me cry. I recommend this book to people who are into sad and adventurous books and also to those who are 13+.

  362. Girl Online, by Zoe Sugg

    This book is like a sequel to her first book. This is a great book, filled with adventure and romance. In the first book, the main character Penny, meets this rockstar Noah and they start dating. In this book, Noah asks Penny to go on his European Tour. She immediately says yes and before you know it they are together again. As the tour goes on she starts to see him less and less, and starts getting frustrated because they never spend time together. One time she gives up and leaves Paris and goes back to London with her family. In the end they are reunited and everything is back to normal. My favourite part is when her friend Elliot comes and saves her from Paris and they go back to London together. My favourite character is Elliot because he is funny and a great friend for anyone. My least favourite part is when they argue and Penny leaves, it is sad and it wasn’t very fun to read. I recommend this book to those who have read her first one, because you sort of need to know all of that before you can understand this one. People who are 11+ would think this is a great book.

  363. Risk, by Fleur Ferris

    I really enjoyed reading this book because it is filled with mystery and romance. Every page hooks you in even more and makes you more interested about what is going to happen next. It is all about cyber safety and being careful about what you say and do online. These two girls, Taylor and Sierra have been best friends since they were babies and they did everything together. Sierra always got what she wanted, one day she goes to meet a guy from a place in Melbourne who they both met online. Sierra really enjoys her time there and decides to stay there one night instead of going back to Taylor’s house. She never came back the next day like she said she would. Two, three days pass and still no sign of Sierra. Taylor tells Sierras Mum that she is missing and then everyone is looking for her. One day Taylor’s Mum came back from work and told her that the guy who Sierra had been with had killed her and left her in Ballarat. This caused grief to everyone who knew her. My favourite character is Taylor, because she is brave and even started up a website about Sierra so people can remember her. My least favourite part of the book is when they find out what happened to Sierra, how she was killed. I would change the part where Taylor wait ed a few days to tell her Mum and Sierras, because if she told them earlier, maybe Sierra would nit have died. I would recommend this book to people who are 13+ because it can get a little scary for younger people. People who are interested in mystery and thrill would enjoy this book.

  364. The princess diaries –
    The princess diaries is definitely one of my all time favourite movies! This movie is about a very quirky high school student named Mia Thermopolis (played by Anne Hathaway) and how she became the princess of Genovia. Mia didn’t always act like a princess which meant she would need all the help she could get! Lucky for her, her grandmother; Queen Clarisse Renaldi (played by Julie Andrews) offered to give Mia ‘Princess Lessons’. This movie is filled with lots of humour and feel good moments, It is just an all round good movie! I would highly recommend this movie to anyone above 10 years old as it is such a fun and family friendly movie.

    I was introduced to this movie by my parents who loved watching this movie back in the 80’s. It’s a classic 80’s movie and just as hilarious now as it was back then. My generation can relate to this movie. It’s about 3 kids that ditch school for the day and have a blast in New York City. They get up to a lot of mischief and fool their school principle. It’s great watching this movie and seeing all the old 80’s fashion and memorabilia such as the old telephone attached to the wall with the long cord compared to the wireless phones and technology we use today. This movie takes you back in time and will always remain a favourite for generations to come. Ask your parents if they have seen this movie and if they enjoyed it. Other good 80’s movies would include The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Grease and many more so check them out today!!!

  366. Paper Towns – John Green

    I read the book and watched the movie Paper Towns written by John Green. I thought the movie was better than the book but I’m not sure if it was because i watched the movie first and Cara Delevingne played the main character in the movie. However the storyline was captivating and full of suspense. John Green is the same author who wrote ‘The Fault in our Stars’. If you enjoyed reading ‘The Fault in our Stars’ you will definitely enjoy reading Paper Towns. My favourite character was Margo Roth Spiegalman she loved mystery so much she became one. From the beginning of the book right to the end of the book, the author keeps you intrigued and wanting to know more about what’s happened to Margo and if they will ever find her. I rate this book and movie a 8 out of 10 because it was interesting from start to finish and i think most teenagers will enjoy it!!

    Drama, heartbreak and romance exactly describe this book. This is the 2nd book in the series which is just as good maybe even better than the first. When Belly returns to the summer holiday house in Cousin she reunites with her picture perfect Conrad Fisher. My favourite character in this book is Jeremiah Fisher (Conrad’s brother) because he is very respectful towards Belly’s feelings and he secretly loves her. He hates how Conrad treats Belly and wanted Belly to see that he will treat her better than Conrad does. I would recommend this book to people how love drama and knowing two sides of a story.

In Cousin, it is the only place Belly feels as if she is home and she looks forward to staying with the Fisher’s who share the holiday house. Belly longs for each summer so she can be reunited with her one true love, Conrad Fisher. Belly experience so many adventures over summer that she will never forget and she can’t imagine a summer without spending it in Cousin’s. Every character in this book is unique but my favourite character is probably Belly. I like Belly because i can relate to her and her journey a lot throughout the book. She is quirky, outgoing and a risk taker which is what i love about a person.

    I really liked the book because I find that it’s really sad but at the same time at least they find a way to communicate. I t was one of those books where you read the first page and you just can’t stop reading it. Personally I think that it’s was a book that taught me to be grateful for what I have and what a great life I live. My favourite part was when there was a lot of drama and tension. Drama just seems to draw me in. I also liked when the daughter was so loving and caring to her mum when life was tough.I don’t really have a least favourite part I liked all of the book but if I had to choose it would probably just be when they listed what they needed. I wouldn’t change the book I think it’s fine how it is and I wouldn’t change it because I like how it’s written like the way it’s written with notes from the mum and daughter. I would definitely recommend this to people, I think it would suit people who like kind of sad story and kind of dramatic!

    “The Hunger Games” trilogy.
    I personally think the Hunger Games is a “Must Read” because the events in this book are exhilarating and thrilling (which is what I like).
    It’s about a 16 year old girl named Katniss Everdeen who is forced to partake in the horrific annual Hunger Games. Her sister Prim was called at “The reaping”, but Katniss interfered by volunteering to take her place of being a tribute, and now has to survive the Games.
    My favourite character would have to be Katniss because she never gives up on what she believes is right.
    I recommend this book for both girls and boys of ages 12+, it is also one for the adults!

    Hunger Games – Catching Fire
    This book is definitely one of my favourite books, and is my favourite of the Hunger Games series. This book is really great if you’re looking for something to read, but i would recommend reading the first one before reading this one. It’s set in Katniss Everdeen’s world, a place where there are 12 districts, and they are ruled by the capitol. Each year the Capitol hold an annual Hunger Games. Katniss, the main character, won a game, along side Peeta. It is a very intriguing book, with many unexpected turns. Throughout the book, Katniss faces many difficult challenges, and every move she makes effects the ones she loves. The only place she’s ever felt safe in is quickly changing, and she is the one leading them, therefore she has many responsibilities and the world is on her shoulders. I would certainly read this book if you enjoy thrilling books.

    The book, “Finding Alibrandi” is a cultural book that I am currently reading. I am up to Chapter 20 (24 chapters in total). I love this book at the moment because it is a oldie but a goodie! It has moments where you can relate to the character (Josie Alibrandi) and moments when you understand how hard and frustrating it would be to meet your father that didn’t even know you existed! My favourite part of the book is that Josie has to pick between motor bike heart throb, Jacob Coote or family achieving, John Barton. She loves them both in different ways. I loved reading about her decisions because it is like your her best friend choosing which boy would be the best for her. My favourite character has to be Josie because of her great sense of humor and her funny back chatting moments. My least favourite moment was when Josie was listening behind the door to hear her Dad discuss to her Mum that he didn’t want to be apart of her life. This was making me feel bad for Josie, since I put myself in her shoes. I would certainly recommend this book to people that came to Australia from over-seas because she is a great role model to look up to since she speaks up for her culture and family. It is not only a great read to over-seas people but for people that enjoy real life moments that are hard to deal with, but get solved out at the end.

    I loved this book because Adeline was such a hopeful and sportful person. She shows the quality of a great role model by getting even more strength when her cruel parents are constantly turning her down. This book is a bit of a sad book because a few of her closest family members die during the story including her pet duck (PLT). But there are so many great and happy parts in the book that don’t want to make you cry. My favourite part in the book was at the end when Adeline wins that national writing composition, but my least favourite part of the book was when Jackie their pet dog killed PLT Adeline’s favourite pet. My favourite character was Aunt BaBa because she was such a nice kind and caring person to Adeline. I would change the end part when her dad sends her off to university in England, I would change it to instead of her going in the medical side of Uni I would of liked it if she when for her dream and did a writing corse. But it was still good that her father let her go to university. I would recommend this book to others and the age group category would probably be 9+.

    The Keepers Series: Lian Tanner
    This series is something different from many other books I’ve read. It is set in the city of Jewel, where ‘impatience is a sin and boldness is a crime’, and children are chained to their parents until their Separation Day when they are aloud to walk the street on their own. Goldie Roth, a young girl who is both bold and impatient, runs away on when her separation day is canceled and find herself at the mysterious Museum of Dunt, and her adventures begin.
    This series in a fun read, each story evolving as the story goes on. It is a loss of innocence story in a way, for we see Goldie change from the quiet rebellious girl to a strong young woman. We see her grow and we see her suffer.
    What I love about his series is the range of mythical creatures and new things you come across along the way. Whether it is a monstrous brizzlehound or the skill of ‘imitating nothingness’ this book takes you to a different world.
    I would recommend this book to girls aged 8+, but there is something in this book for all ages

    We Were Liars:
    I have to admit, it look me a while to get into this book. The first few chapters jump around a lot but once you get the swing of the style the magic begins. It is a very well crafted and powerful book. It touches the heart and is really worth the read. It introduces the plot in a vague way and slowly unravels, giving the novel a unique style and grips you enough for you to fell you have to read on.
    My favourite aspect of the book is the friendships between the four friends, the Liars. They are all so different, and live very different lives but when they are all together on Beechwood Island they couldn’t be more alike. Nothing from their lives follows them to the island and nothing else matters. They are different people on the island, who are all friends and do nothing but enjoy each others company doing things they love.

  433. The Boy in the Striped Pyjama’s is a heartwarming story about Bruno, the son of a Nazi officer, who finds and befriends Shmuel. Shmuel is a young Jewish boy who is trapped in a Concentration Camp.

    Bruno knows that Shmuel should be kept a secret, and so everyday, he sneaks through the house and through the forest so he can see Shmuel. Bruno doesn’t understand that Shmuel can not get out of the camp and can’t play with him. Shmuel wears his camp uniform everyday, which Bruno affectionally refers to as ‘striped pyjama’s’.

    This book is beautifully written and shows the cruel, but soft side to Nazi Germany. Although, Bruno’s Father, so adamant in his ways, is the head of the Camp, Bruno is young and indignant to the horrors that are going on around him. John Boyne has a gift for making his writing vivid and powerful. The images of the story clearly come through and although sometimes horrifying, mostly, true friendship shines stronger than anything else.

    The Boy in the Striped Pyjama’s is an expertly written books that gives younger readers an insight into World War II. This was a most enjoyable books that tugged on the heartstrings. Top marks for this books. A great read for anyone.

It wasn’t like most units in English where (no offense to teachers) you have to suffer through a boring book and almost lose your mind analysing it, The Secret Life Of Bees was actually an enjoyable read for me, and I watched the movie three times! It is about a girl named Lily who escapes from her abusive father with their coloured maid, and starts a new life on a bee farm. She slowly uncovers the secrets of her past, and learns that everything is not what it seems and that she is loved and has many mothers, even though her real mother is gone.

    I read this book last term in English. I must say, it had quite a detailed plot, but it was hard to understand at times. Some parts were funny because we could clearly see the difference between language in the Elizabethan ages and now. My favourite character was Banquo, because he thought things through and was the only sensible voice in the whole play! My least favourite character was Lady Macbeth, because she was such a key character and played a major role in Macbeth spiralling out of control, and she was so sly but eventually felt the toll of their actions and lost her mind. I would rate this book a 5/10, because I wouldn’t usually read a book with so little action and adventure, but I wouldn’t recommend reading it unless you have a teacher to guide you through because it is so confusing.

My favourite character was Danny, which is funny because the first time around I hated him and loved Rafe, but once I knew the ending, I loved Danny a lot more and saw the good in him while I thought Rafe was shallow.

He is so creative, and there is no limit to admiring how he is always a step ahead planning every move. I rate this movie a 1000/10 because it is my favourite movie of all time, I have already re-watched it twice in a week because it is that good! My favourite part was when Bourne lured the private agency out to the streets believing he was waiting for them, then he rung the Boss and said ‘if you were in your office right now, we would be having this conversation face to face’. Everyone needs to watch the Bourne movies, the fifth one comes out in July 2016!!!

    Bourne Identity

    This was an amazing movie!! I was up all night thinking about it and how much I loved it!
    Matt Damon plays Jason Bourne, a highly skilled assassin, but he woke up not remembering anything about his past. He sets out to discover who he was and how he ended up in this life threatening situation, all the while having multiple government and private agencies trying to kill him. Damon does an amazing acting job, and I spent the next week waiting for Friday night for the second movie to come on. I would highly recommend this movie for EVERYONE, it was a great family movie and I would watch it again and again. I rate this movie a 10/10

    Scorch Trials
    This movie was better than I expected, because I didn’t enjoy the book – I found it boring. This movie was just as action packed as the first, but the story line was not the best. It did provide a few good scares, i screamed twice in the cinema o.O I liked it how they all bonded together and helped each other escape from the ‘prison’ they were being kept in, however the story got a bit unbelievable near the end and the stunts and stuff were a bit over the top and unrealistic, but this was a good movie to watch for anyone who likes action and heart pounding situations. I rate it a 7/10

    Maze Runner
    I really enjoyed this movie, intact it was my favourite movie of all time for a bit. It had really good actors in it, and a detailed storyline. My favourite character was Minho because of his bravery and determination, and my least favourite bit was the ending because it left a lot of untied ends, although that’s what the second movie is for! If i could change one part of this movie, I would have put in how Thomas and Teresa could read each other’s minds in the books, because this made more sense with how they knew each other. I rate this movie a 9/10 and I think everyone should watch it, it’s not inappropriate for young people just a bit scary.

    Girl Online On Tour by Zoe Sugg (Zoella)

    Girl Online On Tour is the second book to the Girl Online series and I love this look as much as I love the first. I really enjoyed this book because I literally couldn’t put it down, I started reading and I didn’t stop reading until I finished. There were bits in this book where I was like “no way!” and bits where I was like “that’s so cute” but I loved everything single chapter in this book. It was so captivating like I felt like I was in the book, I felt like I was the main character Penny. The book was full of cute moments with Penny and her boyfriend Noah and some laugh out loud moments with her best friend Elliot. This book has it all from love to laughs. It also confronts issues with anxiety and panic attacks which I think it’s good that Zoe added this in her book because it lets young girls or boys know they’re not alone. My favourite character apart from Penny is Elliot because he is just so funny, everything he says makes me laugh. I would recommend this book to people who like a bit of a love story, it’s such cute love story that made my heart melt. I definitely recommend reading it!

  452. “Because You’ll never meet me”

    Because you’ll never meet me by Leah Thomas. Is a book about two kids Ollie and Moritz. They are best friends and can never meet each other. This is because if Ollie goes near electricity he will have a spaz attack whilst Moritz has a pacemaker and if he turned that off he’ll surely die before meeting Ollie. My favorite part of this book is just before Ollie starts writing an autobiography of himself, he creates a teaser. “I’ve died,” this absolutely intrigued me. The first questions that come to mind when I had herd this where, what had happened? is that why he can’t go near electricity? Does this have anything to do with Moritz? Ollie is my favorite character because he is the type of person that is a giver. He doesn’t expect anything back. He just helps people when ever he can, and he does it with the can do attitude that everyone strives for. I can relate to Ollie in that he often tries to put on that he is happy but really something is eating him up inside. The only part of the book that I would change is that I would add cliffhangers to the end of each chapter to draw in the attention of the reader. Other wise I loved this book and would definitely recommend it to others. This is the type of book to read if you’re the type of person who likes to scatter your self across a variety of themes and books because this book has action, comedy, drama, sad, and suspense.

    Thankyou for reading me book review

I love it as it has so many parts that were adventurous and are sad as you get scared he is going to die:( I loved the part when Dory was crying as nemos dad had swam away to find Nemo. I loved it how memo came up to Dory and asked if she was alright and if she knew her father! This part was so cute as it made me happy that memo was safe and was finally going to find his family again!!! i would give the an 8-10 as it is a little kids movie but is still so fun and such an exciting movie to watch!

  463. The Fault in our Stars. – Book and Movie.

    I love the fault in our stars, It is a movie/book that always keeps you interested.
    It’s filled with both a HUGE physical journey with an even bigger emotional journey.
    Any way the book is a bout a girl called Hazel who has a problem with her lungs which
    Effects her breathing and she could die any day. Because of this it reduces the activities
    That regular teenagers can do, like traveling, sport etc.
    One day her mum makes Hazel go to a place where she talks her problems, while she’s there she meets a guy called Augustus who also has a problem with his lungs but is still different to Hazels.
    Hazel and Augustus fall in love and Travel the world together there is ups in the book, and downs that can even make you cry. But nonetheless it is absolutely magnificent book/movie that I would recommend to all the years levels at sacred heart, from 7-12.

  464. Whale Rider- movie
    Whale rider is not the best movie I have ever seen and i wasn’t into it that much. Paikea was born with a twin brother who was the first boy born which meant he would become the new leader but unfortunately he passed away at his birth with his mother. Throughout the movie Paikea’s goal is to become the new and first girl leader but her grand father Koro is not willing for her to do this as it will break their tradition.
    This was not my type of movie, but it may be your type so you should definitely watch it!

    The Martian

    I recently saw this about two weeks ago. I wasn’t expecting it to be a good movie by looking at the previews but as they say, “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” does relate to the preview. I liked this movie because it gave me some life tips on surviving by yourself. My favourite part of The Martian was when Mark Watney (Matt Damon) was able to complete many difficult things all alone. My favourite character is Mark as he is the main character and imported a lot of humour! The other characters in the movie were eager to help him escape Mars. My most favourite part would just spoil the ending. If you want to know my favourite part you’re just going to have to watch The Martian and then my favourite part will soon become yours. Follow these words, “Read my comment and watch the movie and then you’ll be as emotional as me.” – Bianca. I would recommend this movie to people over the age of 9. I believe teenagers and adults would like this movie. Don’t forget to watch The Martian, there are helpful tips and science if thats your favourite subject!!

It is one of the most funniest tv shoes ever! I like lost 10kgs by laughing so much! My favourite character so far would be Tucker, he comes across as that funny gay carefree hilarious guy, but he’s not gay. I also really like the character Ben, he shoes the emotions and difficulties of having a child and living life, my least character would be Riley, but I actually love them all!

    This is such an awesome book/movie! Its that type of movie where your constantly on the tip of your chair holding your breath knowing that something big is about to happen. This movie demonstrates the growing relationship between Tris and Four and Tris’ life of being a divergent (the most dangerous faction) I love movies where someone has to be a spy or go undercover I find them so interesting. I watched the second movie Insurgent and it was also just as amazing as the first one! There is so much chemistry between all the characters and the movie is so flowing, like there isn’t an out of place scene, its amazing! Recommend this to anyone who loves a good action movie!

    The Running Dream is a amazing book i have never read something like the Running Dream before. When i started reading it i was amazed with it and i couldn’t put it down even though it was on my computer but i couldn’t put my lid down because it made me really think about some people who have been in a car accident and have lost their arm or leg. My favourite character in the book is Rosa because she helped her new friend Jessica get good grades in maths and she is just lovely over all. I also like fiona she has been Jessica’s best friend since prep. like me i have been best friends with a girl since prep and we are still now. I think it’s so nice of Jessica to take Rosa for a marathon i think it was really nice. This book is great for all ages except the really young ones who can’t read yet.
