Hounded by Kevin Hearne

OMG, where to start. I get it that after 100 pages or so this book really takes off. I like the mix of all religions not only the focus of the celitc. And the relationship between Oberon and Attuis was just too cute and the ending funny as heck. The storyplot was very good, characters bright and lively. I don't think I have anything bad to say about this book... Tho my libraries don't have book 2 *tear* .   :((

iBoy by Kevin Brooks
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Imagine yourself a teenager boy (some of us would have to do that) waiting for a friend to meet ya outside their apartment when an iphone is thrown out of the window and its the last thing you see as the iphone cracks open your skull and merges some of the parts into your own brain. You wake up in the hospital from a coma and things are different... Your friend is brutally raped by the gang who threw the phone at you. You have strange powers now... or you go after them? Be the hero... be her hero?   Well I won't tell you anymore of this wifi thriller but this book shocked me it was so good and a new author for me... I'll be reading more of Kevin Brooks books in the future for sure. So read this! Enjoy it... like I did!

Season of the Witch Review

Season of the Witch (2011)
My Rating: 4♥/5♥

Ok here are my thoughts... Nicolas Cage plays himself once again but I believe that Ron Perlman is the guy who saved this movie for me I love this guy. Alright so the movie has a highly religious background... and these two guys are knight who oathed themselves to the church and God. But when they are ordered to attack villages that only have woman and children in them these two abandon the men of the army and go off as traitors to the chruch. Where they run into a plague and finally the town with the girl they claim started it. Thats the start of the journey- a very dark journey towards a town of monks and the last book that can stop the darkness that is sweeping over the land. So thats all I'm giving you about the movie. I have to say I wasn't ready to cry at the end but I did. I was like NO... The only reason this movie didn't get 5 hearts is probody nicholas cage... most his acting is just him playing the same or similar person. Oh by the way... this movie isn't for the faint of heart... plenty of galore in this!
IMDB Synopsis: 14th-century knights transport a suspected witch to a monastery, where monks deduce her powers could be the source of the Black Plague.

Red Riding Hood Review

Red Riding Hood (2011)
My Rating:  5♥/5♥

Even despite the fact that most of my friends didn’t like this movie. I would have to say I did, I would have to say the acting was better than twilight and Amanda thank god can act. The story is your basic love triangle with a supernatural twist. Most I read about are vampire and werewolf with a human girl so I liked this story even better. Not to give away the story but I loved how the movie tried to get you to think the wolf was one of the boys attracted to the girl. I’m afraid I was one of these people so the ending was like a whoa really to me! I didn’t see too much bad stuff about the story plot or the other characters… they played them perfectly to my eyes. As you can tell with this review I liked the movie.

The synopsis from imdb :
Set in a medieval village that is haunted by a werewolf, a young girl falls for an orphaned woodcutter, much to her family's displeasure.

Taking 5 - 1st Movie Review!

Today's Review is Taking 5 which on the cover caught my attention since someone at Herald Publications said "It's High School Musical with a Twist". My thought was kewl another movie in which teenagers are dancing around singing and since i've seen HSM 1 and Camp Rock I was all for another one just like that- even I watch Glee for that type of thing to watch. But of I was wrong. It wasn't a musical to start with... having a band in the movie and having only them singing like 2/3 songs doesn't entitle it a musical. Also I have to say but the script was just bad- I know this movie targets an younger audience but you got to be kidding me with the writing of this movie. Its like some 11/12 year olds wrote the thing. I'm not saying that you shouldn't watch it- I'm just saying it totally let me down!

IMDB only has a few lines in their description of this movie:
Two geeky teens kidnap the world's most famous boy-band in an attempt to make them play at their high school and thus boost the girls' popularity.
Now here is the trailer:
Later until my next review which will either be a movie, tv, or book... or just a simple rant... you never know!

The Unknown Spy by Eoin McNamee

The Unknown Spy by Eoin McNamee
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This Book covered a very interesting part in Daniel's life. First he finds out that
his parents are not his 'real' parent only agents there to protect him. And then
murder follows him until the very end when a girl tricks him into thinking that
she is his sister and only living family. which was not true... betrayal was thick
in this story but I was hanging on every word. Can't wait for the third book!

I'm thinking about taking a break from the Lexicon for a bit maybe or do one a month!
