In the last few months of 2018 I haven’t been to the cinema very often, so it’s been a while since I last posted on of these reviews. During the holidays I saw quite a few films, so the next one won’t take me as long. Let me know which of these films you’ve seen!
Bohemian rhapsody (4/5)
Release date: 23-10-2018
Director: Bryan Singer
Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazello
Tagline: Fearless lives forever
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. Continue reading
Joost started with the idea of friday five. Every week there is a certain theme, where a few bloggers write there top five about. I don’t participate every time, I just pick my favorite topics. Last week I wrote about books I want to read that are coming out in 2019 and this weeks it’s about older books.
The inexplicable logic of my life – Benjamin Alire Sáenz
The first day of senior year:
Everything is about to change. Until this moment, Sal has always been certain of his place with his adoptive gay father and their loving Mexican-American family. But now his own history unexpectedly haunts him, and life-altering events force him and his best friend, Samantha, to confront issues of faith, loss, and grief.
Suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and discovering that he no longer knows who he really is—but if Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he? Continue reading
After series – Anna tod (2/5)
Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way.
But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to.
But he’s also rude—to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin. And she does—until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss it ignites within her a passion she’s never known before.
He’ll call her beautiful, then insist he isn’t the one for her and disappear again and again. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper.
Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin’s prejudice about nice girls like her?
Unless…could this be love? Continue reading
(Almost) every week I participate in The friday five. A little while ago Joost asked if there were any bloggers who’d like to join him in doing this and I said I did. This second subject in 2019 is about the most anticipated books coming out this year. So far I’m not extremely hyped for any, but there are a few that caught my attention.
Evermore – Sara Holland
Jules Ember was raised hearing legends of the ancient magic of the wicked Alchemist and the good Sorceress. But she has just learned the truth: not only are the stories true, but she herself is the Alchemist, and Caro—a woman who single-handedly murdered the Queen and Jules’s first love, Roan, in cold blood—is the Sorceress.
The whole kingdom believes that Jules is responsible for the murders, and a hefty bounty has been placed on her head. And Caro is intent on destroying Jules, who stole her heart twelve lifetimes ago. Jules must delve into the stories that she now recognizes are accounts of her own past. For it is only by piecing together the mysteries of her lives that Jules will be able to save the person who has captured her own heart in this one. Continue reading
Quick sidenote: As you may have noticed I changed the name of the website as well as the names on all of my social media account. I just thought it was time for something new. I can’t change my url yet, but 2019 might be the year that I’ll start my own website!
A little while ago I saw this post on Claire’s blog, talking about her year on spotify. For those who don’t know: Every December Spotify gives you a little overview from the previous year. I never thought about sharing this, but since I love music, I thought this could be a lot of fun!
I don’t remember everything the site shows you, but I know I picked the best ones to show you. First of all that’s the amount of minutes I spent listening to music. This isn’t totally true, since I share an account with my mom, but most of these 42000 minutes were used by me. Continue reading
