What I've Been Reading & Watching - Two books finished, a hilarious TV series I'm enjoying.......

Image

Creepy Book Characters (some not so creepy) to read about this Halloween

Image
They're weird, creepy, violent, and perhaps a little (and sometimes more than a little) psychotic. 
I, for one, am thankful they stay in their books ;)  And yet, that doesn't stop them from freaking me out. Or from coming to vivid and intense life. 
Muahahahahaha

MR. RIGHT (film) was wrong in so many ways

Image
Cast: Anna Kendrick; Sam Rockwell; Tim Roth. 
Year: 2015.
Director: Paco Cabezas.
Content Rating: R for violence and language throughout. PG16VL
Source: Rented.
IMDB: Mr. Right

Synopsis:
A girl falls for the "perfect" guy, who happens to have a very fatal flaw: he's a hitman on the run from the crime cartels who employ him.



Not even the charm of Anna Kendrick could stop Mr. Right from being utterly WRONG.

What I've Been Reading - Oooh! a NEW BOOK and a NEW MOVIE!

Image
I'm reading two beauties at the moment, AND I was naughty and bought one new book and one new movie as well :)






The book was on sale, so I kinda felt I had to ;)

I have no excuse for the movie.



Scary Stories & Freaky Films: Scare yourself this Halloween! (well, duh) Muahahahaha

Image
Halloween's all for getting creeped out and spooked and hiding under the covers because you're sure that branch crashing against your bedroom window is some part of a hideous, half-dead, blood-sucking monster who's dying (pun intended) to kill you. 
Or maybe that's just me. 
(Blame the book I was reading at the moment...)

Waiting on Wednesday #3: The Chemist - by Stephenie Meyer

Image
Goodreads: The Chemist
Author: Stephenie Meyer
Release Date: November 8






SENSE AND SENSIBILITY - by Jane Austen

Image
Year Published {This edition}:2006  - by Headline.
Pages: 386.
Genres: Romance/comedy/historical/satire
Author: Jane Austen.
Source: Library. 
Goodreads: Sense and Sensibility

Blurb:
'...the more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love.'

Marianne Dashwood is young, flirtatious and ready to meet a knight in shining armour. Her sister, Elinor, is more restrained - she knows that when it comes to romance, slow and steady wins the race. But while both seem to have found what they want, the path to happiness isn't as straightforward as they first thought. True love has a habit of breaking the rules and turning up whenever it's least expected...

Overall, I am SO pleased to announce that Austen has, officially and finally, won me over :)


What I've Been Reading - lots of variety and fun all round!

Image
I'm reading three books at the moment and they are all so different from each other. Which is actually really cool, because depending on what mood I'm in, I can just grab the one I feel like reading at the moment and read ahead. Yay :)

My Book and Movie Arrivals! - My takealot delivery arrived and HAPPY DAYS!

Image

What I've Been Reading - Attempting Austen and more Throne of Glass.....

Image
This has been a good week for my movies and books! I watched the films of Safe Haven and Water for Elephants last week, and I'll be posting my reviews of them this coming week. Just to let you know, they were AMAZING!
But. Let's talk books :)

Reading Quirks & Preferences: Where do you read, what do you read......let's chat!

Image
I am so glad I finally got round to starting a blog. And here's why: I have met some lovely bookish blogger friends, who I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and exploring their blogs and learning from them and just talking books and movies! So, as a fun thing, I have three bookish questions I'd be eager to hear your answers to :)  Please comment and tell me what your answers are to the three questions below so I can get to know your bookish self better! (that was totally un-stalkish, right?!)
