Book to movie….


Hello Everyone!

So many books now  have a film, from the oldest books to the newest ones… And that’s great! I love seeing a book I enjoyed reading turned into a movie, and I know that there are somethings that can’t be in the movie; the effort is appreciate it. There’s nothing more that I enjoy more when it’s comes to book and movies that a good film based on a good book. One of the best examples of these are: 

  1. Gone With The Wind
  2. The Hunger Games
  3. Anna Karenina 
  4. Romeo & Juliet (1968)
  5. Hamlet (1995)

These five are five books that I really love, no matter how much they make me suffer… And seeing the film versions of these books make my day brighter.Gone With The Wind is not only one of the best books in American literature (in my opinion) but it’s also a wonderful movie and it’s also pretty the reason I love movies as much as I do today. After reading that book I starting readying a lot more. So much that I even read Fifty Shades of Grey, not one of my favorites but at least I wasn’t surprised by the film… And if you havent read it, don’t waste your time; read Gone With The Wind instead.

Let mew know what your favorite Book to Movie adaptation is your favorite.

Anna Karenina


Hello Everyone!

Today I will me telling all about one of my favorite books ever! Anna Karenina. This book I came across after I watched the 1948 movie version with Vivien Leigh (My favorite actress ever) as Anna Karenina. I read the book and I loved the story because it was different and daring, at least it was for its time. The book tells the story of a young woman named Anna who is married to a very important man in Russia but she ends up meeting and falling in love with another man. They eventually get together, even though she’s married and after some time she just doesn’t care who knows about their relationship. Obviously a lot of things happen, she had a few ups and down in her life and relationships and I’m not going to tell you more about it just in case you guys haven’t read the book or watched the movie (any version will do) because I don’t want to spoil the story for you guys… but I really do recommend you guys do one of these two: read the book or watch the movie, because it’s truly an amazing story. I get so excited to just talk about this book, that’s how much I love it! But seriously, I know I already said it, but go read the book or watch the movie; you guys won’t regreat it.

Now, let me know what books do you like. Thanks for reading! Dont forget to follow me on social media.

Opposition (Lux #5) By Jennifer L. Armentrout


Hello Everyone!

1164083_orig

Opposition picks up about two days later from where the Origin ended. Something that ILOVED from this book was in Katy and Daemon’s POV (Point of view), so we get to see what’s going on inside of both of their minds. This book is full of action and also full of unexpected turns, but that is something you should be used to by now since Jennifer L. Armentrout is no stranger to unexpected twists in this story and they are also really interesting so they are always welcome as long as everything is okay in the end.

Every since I read the first book, I fell in love with the series and the characters and it was kinda sad that this was the last book, but I really liked it. I personally think that Jennifer l. Armentroutdid an amazing job with the Epilogue, though I would really like it if there was another book about Katy and Daemon in the future, maybe married with kids,wouldnt that be lovely?  … but who knows? it may happen someday  (hopefully).

 

Origin (Lux #4) By Jennifer L. Armentrout


Hello Everyone!

1821533_orig

Origin is the fourth in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and I can tell you that after the cliffhanger in which Opal ended I was literally counting the days until this book came out and once it did (on Aug. 27, 2013) I was a really really happy person . 

Something that I LOVED! from this book is that it was on Daemon and Katy‘s P.O.V. and thanks to that we got to see more of Daemon and his lovely personality… and as if we didn’t expect it, this book also ends with a cliffhanger which had me counting (again…) for the day when the fifth and final book from the Lux series, Opposition, came out on Aug. 5, 2014… but Opposition will get a review of its own very soon. I promise. 

Now in Origin we get to meet new exciting characters such as Archer whom I come to love, almost as much as I love Daemon… though I doubt there is anyone like Daemon (At least not in this series) or anyone who can surpass my love for him. [Sighs] Daemon is just so wonderful but anyways this book is just so exciting and things will continue to get even better (Trust me, I know) and by the end of the book you WILL NOT be able to wait until you read the next book… basically what I’m saying is that this book also ends in a cliffhanger, something I’m beginning to think is something Jennifer L. Armentrout loves to do and I don’t blame her, these cliffhangers are just so great even when they leave me in such an awful state of mind.

Opal (Lux #3) By Jennifer L. Armentrout


Hello Everyone! 

1742100_orig

The third part of the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout will certainly leave you hanging, until you read the fourth book, just as the others do. In this book you’ll get to see some happy moments and other that will make you feel sad… but at the end they all are leading to a very big event in the book. Also there are some adorable and sweet moments between Daemon andKaty who finally got together… and that was something many (many) people wanted… me included. I wanted them together since the first book started, and this is one of the reasons I like this series so much; since they didn’t start (or jumped) into a relationship so fast… it took sometime for them to finally admit that they like each other and finally be a couple and once they do a lot of things change; not only between them but around them. 

 

[DO NOT READ AHEAD IF YOU WANT TO AVOID SPOILERS!!]

In this book Katy and Daemon FINALLY become an official couple only to be separated by the end of the book which broke my heart in a million pieces the first time I read the book and now every time I re-read the book… it makes me tear up a little bit. Just a little bit… But I am an eternal optimist. But this book leaves you in such a cliffhanger and it’s a really big one that you be able to keep your hands of the next book.

Onyx (Lux #2) By Jennifer L. Armentrout


Hello Everyone!

The second book in the series will surely leave you wanting more like Obsidian did. Onyx came with more twists and secrets that are more than unexpected. New characters come into play, some are good others not so much… and as Daemon tries to prove that what he feels for Katy is real [Smiles] she tries to ignore him and have a ‘normal’ life or as normal as it can be after the events of the last book… which I am not going to mention for obvious reasons. 

Something that I absolutely loved from Onyx was Daemon. I loved him in Obsidian but I almost felt the need to slap him a couple of times but in Onyx you can see how he is slowly changing in to a better person [Wink] and it’s all because of Katy, who is still not so sure if Daemon’s feelings are real because of how their friendship (Which wasn’t really a friendship) was.  

Something about this book had me hoping that it would never end, but eventually every book comes to an end no matter how sad that might make us and Onyx is no exception… but the ending for this book is rather bitter-sweet simply because something truly bad happens so something good can happen.
