A little something to jump start the weekend, looking at books in different ways.
So interesting, yet somewhat unsettling.
Scroll down for the English translation.
What do you think?
Stuck for suggestions for a something to read? Going stir crazy with winter? MLCWO to the rescue.
How about checking out the new book of short stories by Kelly Link? The stories described as eery, gothic, surreal are something that might hit the spot on a cold winters day. HERE Read more about Kelly HERE.
However, if you are stuck and can’t get to the library The Guardian has got a free read available on their website. Despite the fact it appears for children the story has an interesting take and it is free. Free. HERE.
I just had to reblog this again because when I have had some free time recently, I have been picking up these books and am slowly but surely making my way back through the series. I forgot how much I love it…>Swoons<
So please, check these out because they are amazing and I want someone to rant and fangirl to ^^ xD

Okay. So this is going to be on MASSIVE post about the ENTIRE Guild Hunter Series by Nalini Singh because there were 7 books (not including the novellas which I still have to read) and I feel that one LARGE post would be good. Otherwise you will see 7 posts of me ABSOLUTELY FANGIRLING!!!!!!!!
I. AM. SO. IN. LOVE. WITH. THIS. SERIES.

MATURE READERS ONLY!

Guess MLCWO needs to get a review of this charming (and award winning movie done asap!)
The bad news it isn’t due to be out until June 29, 2018.
Dylan O’Brien – Thomas
Aml Ameen – Alby
Ki Hong Lee – Minho
Blake Cooper – Chuck
“Thomas wakes up in an elevator, remembering nothing but his own name. He emerges into a world of about 60 teen boys who have learned to survive in a completely enclosed environment, subsisting on their own agriculture and supplies. A new boy arrives every 30 days. The original group has been in “The Glade” for three years, trying to find a way to escape through the Maze that surrounds their living space. They have begun to give up hope. Then a comatose girl arrives with a strange note, and their world begins to change. There are some great, fast-paced action scenes, particularly those involving the nightmarish Grievers who plague the boys.”

So I haven’t read the book yet but I recently saw this movie on the plane and absolutely loved it. It was definitely dystopian and I don’t usually like those types of movies, and books, but this one was actually really well done and interesting as you didn’t really know that it was dystopian, or the outside world was.
The setting of the movie was extremely simple, having no serious graphic effects besides the Grievers really and it was a nice change from the regular really large, bigger than life movie. I’m going to have to find the book so I can compare the two but people who have read the book who I know have said the movie did the book justice, but I’d like to find out for myself, though I’d love input from others.
The characters did develop well even though I felt that everything which happened did happen extremely rapidly. I felt like from the time that Thomas arrived only a few days had passed, and maybe that was what it was supposed to be, but to me it moved a little quickly. I wanted for time to drag out a little more because it was just one thing after another, being thrown all around. I know that The Maze did force them to move faster, but to get up to that point was extremely rapid.
A lot of the movie was based around, or started filming, somewhere around the maze wall entrance.
Overall I just really loved the movie and would definitely see it again and I’m going to have to find the book and read it and will hopefully get a review of that soon. So what did anyone else think of this movie and the book-to-movie aspect as well?
Enjoy and happy watching!
