Life is Strange: Episode One | Gameplay

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a gameplay of the first episode of Life is Strange!

*should I tag spoilers because I talk about a lot of things that happen in this game. if you don’t want to know about the game and the choices you’ll have to do then don’t read this. 

lifeisstrangeep1

So I’m doing another Gameplay even though no one really likes these posts but you know what I’m playing this game, I just finished episode one and I want to talk about it so you know what just deal with it. Okay so this is a video game that follows girl named Max who goes to an art school and after seeing a guy named Nathan shoot a girl, she discovers that she has the power to rewind time. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again I’m not very good at video games. Like I always make the wrong choices and I panic and mess things up. But I’ve played like two video games before I played this one *that i have reviewed here and here and I’ve had a little more experience with playing on the Play Station Four so I was prepared! Sort! *not really

I didn’t really know much about this game. With Alien: Isolation and Until Dawn, I knew about those games because I had watched Markiplier and he had played them but with this game I didn’t really anything. My dad just came home and gave it to me and I read the back but then I didn’t touch for like a week. I like that didn’t really know anything about it because when everything was happening I was like SURPRISE! Also side note if you’re wondering what happen to part three of Until Dawn, I finished the game and then I restarted it because I wasn’t happy with how it ended. I meant to write part three but then I started forgetting everything that had happened so right now I’m just gonna finish replaying and then do part three. Okay so the first sign of trouble in this game was when I start the game and the words ‘your actions have will have an effect on what happens’ pop up and I’m NO! Not a butterfly effect game!

screaming.gif

Until Dawn was a butterfly effect game and I failed that so hard like I made all the wrong choices and only four people out of nine or ten characters survived. And I like I said before I make all the wrong choices or I miss things that can help me or I panic do the wrong thing! The plus side to this is that Max’s powers allow you to go back in time and change your decisions but the down side to that is that her powers can only go back so far that you have to go back at that moment or else you’re stuck. I have no idea which choice is the right choice. Whenever I pick a choice I feel confident but then the butterfly or rewind thing in the corner will go off and make noise and will be ‘go back and fix that’ or the very threatening ‘THIS ACTION WILL HAVE CONSEQUENCES!’ and then I’m like did I make the right choice because I have no clue what this game whats from me!

You can also take pictures of different things in this which I enjoy but I’ve missed a lot of things that you can take pictures of so I really hope that doesn’t come back and bit me later or else I’ll cry and cry and cry. Also you can talk to people and they can ask you things and I didn’t really do that. I talked a teacher at one point and signed a thing where the weird guard wants to put cameras everywhere and then ‘wonderful’ this action will have consequences pop up! It makes me question everything! I also stopped a football from hitting a girl on the head so that was nice. It took me like five years to figure out how to tamper with the paint to spill on the mean girl Victoria who I was then nice to because my goal is always the same which it is……….

LET’S ALL BE FRIENDS!

I was nice and we got along for like for a couple seconds. Later I got a text saying that we weren’t friends and I was a little hurt if I’m being honest. Let’s talk about that asshole Nathan like this kid has issues and I think he is on like hardcore drugs and I think he’s insane or like borderline insane either way he’s insane and he shoot girl and he beat up that cool kid Warren I think that’s his name who had nothing to do with it. Also the girl who got shot was Max’s old best friend, Chloe, which I was surprise that it was her but not really because she kept talking about her so I was like she is probably important and she was!!!!

I’m very curious on what’s happening in this universe as the episode ends with it snowing and when the story takes place it’s summer I think. I bet you that we are going to be solving the mystery of what happened to the missing girl whose name I’ve already forgotten but then something is going to happen with Max’s powers which causes things to go wrong and it causes the storm that she keeps having dreams about because if I know anything about time travel, it’s that changing the past will have an negative on the future. That’s my theory right now it could change as the game goes on but right now I think I’ll stick with that.

This game is great and besides the paranoid feel that I have every time I make a goddamn decision, I’m very much joying playing this game. I have four chapters left and I will be doing post like this one where I just talk about them and how I make bad choices. I recommend this game to guys and if you enjoy time travel and another games that make you question everything. I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way.

Top 10 Favorite Shows! |2017 Summer Edition

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a top 10 of all my favorite shows of summer of 2017! I did one for winter in February which you can read here and I did one for spring in May which you can read here. I have watched so many shows this summer that I had to remove things from this list so that I could other things to this list. Picking the order of this list was hard because I liked a lot of these shows and it didn’t know where some of them should go Whatever. Let’s begin!

Here are some honorable mentions: Hit the Floor, Fresh off the Boat, Voltron, and The Handmaid’s Tale. And one dishonorable mention: 13 Reasons Why *i’m not explaining this again.


#10 Glow

glowcover

Probably the one that I didn’t question were it went. I liked this show. I didn’t love it as much as I wanted to. I started watching because Entertainment Weekly would not shut up about it and my sister and I were just like let’s give it a shot. We did and it was okay. I wanted to see more of the wrestling then I got and I wasn’t a fan of the whole stereotyping storyline. It’s still a good show but is it the best thing ever? No not really.


#9 Young Justice

Young-Justice-The-Team-Pose

This would be higher but I’m not that far into it. Yeah I’m like on episode three and yes I’m enjoying but Superkid is too angsty for my liking and that’s says a lot because I love angst and he is so mean to Megan and she clearly likes him. Everyone else is great and I like how in the first episode we see like Batman and Flash and Superman who doesn’t want to bond with like his clone son. This show is great so far and I’m excited that I get to be around for season three.


#8 The Goldbergs

goldbergs.jpg

This show is so much fun and I love watching it. It’s just a silly sitcom but it’s so funny. I like how every character is based off a person from the shows creator’s life and like the end of every episode we see like clips of videos from the creator’s life. It takes place in the 80s which I love. I love reading about things that take place in different times and it’s not historical fiction. It’s like that 70 show but with more family and less drugs and it’s the 80s not the 70s. It’s still great! Go watch this show because it’s like already been confirmed for a season 5 and a season 6 which is great because I’m really mad at ABC. You’ll read about why later on in this post.


#7 Orphan Black

orphan-black-season-5

I’m still not sure if this is at the right spot because I love this show so much and I’m so sad that it’s coming to an end. Season 5 guys, the final season of Orphan Black and I only have a couple episodes left and I’m so scared. When I started this season I thought it was going to be about them defeating very things but now I’m thinking it’s about them escaping every things and I think that it will end of Rachel doing something nice for ONCE! I just want my kids to be happy because that’s all that matters and I don’t want anyone to die.


#6 Jane the Virgin

jane the virgin.jpg

I watched this show when it came onto Netflix and man was I spoiled on what happened. I’m not going to say but if you watched season 3 or have a tumblr then you probably know what the hell happened and I was so upset. There was under thing I wasn’t expecting which was still good and I was scared because normally in shows or movies when they do that it doesn’t work but it worked and I liked. Besides that I loved this season, this show is so much fun. I mean it seems stupid from the summary but it’s a great show and is super funny. Mateo is the cutest thing ever and I have so many questions about the finale and I’m scared about season 4.


#5 iZombie

izombie.png

Another season gone by and I’m seriously concerned about what’s gonna happen next because damn this season finale was insane on so many levels. Like OH MY GOD! I need to know what happens next with everything because you can’t just end it like that. The humor for this show is great and I feel like it gets better with every season with like the brains and her reactions with the brains it so good and I love Ravi, he is amazing and if anything happens to him or any of these characters…. CW has another fucking this coming. Go watch this show 🙂


#4 Happy Endings

happy endings.jpg

I started watching this show because of a scene I saw on Tumblr and I was dying of laugher. This show is a lot of fun and I have a hard time wondering why the hell it got canceled because it is so good. The characters are so great, it’s like a modern version of Friends. This show is so funny and amazing and I’m almost done with season 3 which was the last season before it got canceled. you guys go watch this show. It’s on Hulu and you can just marathon through all the episodes.


#3 Still Star-Crossed

still-star-crossed.jpg

This is my August book of the month for Epic Adaptations so a full review for this show will be coming soon so look out for that. I’m not going to say everything about this because of my full review coming soon but this show is so great and I’m so sad that it got canceled and that they changed the finale from the book so that they could end it on a cliffhanger and I’m so mad and sad. I’m smad, guys. I’m so smad like you don’t even know. And I’m so sad. I was like posting my reactions of the finale on Tumblr and I had a lot of fun doing that.


#2 Speechless

speechless.jpg

This show. WHERE DO I BEGIN? It is so good and funny and amazing and I love it so much. This is a show that involves a family and the oldest son is an a wheel chair and it’s just about their lives and it is so funny and great. I blow through this show because I was having so much fun watching it. It’s funny as hell and it’s real and I love it. Guys go watch this show, it’s on hulu and season two is coming soon and I’m so ready for it.


#1 Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir

ladybug

This should literally come as no surprised as I had to do two reviews for this show which you can read here and here because when I finished the first one I wasn’t done talking about this show and I had to go and make a part two because I didn’t what to add on to the first one. I’ve rewatched this show so many times this summer, I don’t even know where to start! Season Two comes onto Netflix in December and I’m so excited because balcony scene and a lot Marinette and Adrien scenes like who is ready for that shit!


And let’s been my top 10 favorite shows of Summer! I hope you guys enjoy this. Look for my summer reads post and my Life is Strange episode one gameplay coming soon. I’m like seriously debating on whether I should watch the neftlix version of Death Note, it’s my favorite Anime but I don’t really want to see  Nat Wolf as Light and anime adaptations sucks. Maybe that should be my September book of the month?? Have you guys watched any of these shows? If you have let me know what you thought of them. Did you agree with me? I bet like most you people were accepting Riverdale to pop up on this. No Riverdale will not be appearing on any of these list and if it does which isn’t likely then it will be in the dishonorable mentions category with it’s best friend 13 Reasons Why.

13 Reasons Why TV SHOW review / Rant | Epic Adaptations

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about the hit Netflix tv show based off the book by Jay Asher which is my July book of the month!

13ReasonsWhy

If you don’t know, I’m doing a book club called Epic Adaptations where every month I pick a book that has a movie adaptation and I review both the adaptation and the book. If you want to know more about it then click out this post here and if you want to read about my thoughts on the book then click here to check that out. If you like 13 Reasons Why then you shouldn’t read this review because you probably won’t like it.

So if you remembered from my review of the book then you should know that I don’t really like 13 Reasons Why the book and if you want to know then go read read my review of the book. I wasn’t looking forward to this show even before I re read the book, I still wasn’t looking forward to this show. Then it dropped and it trended on Tumblr for like a week and I went to school and everyone was talking about it. It was the new thing. I tired to give it a shot and I got like two minutes in and then I stopped because I didn’t like it. It just wasn’t close to the book in anyway. Now that I have re read the book and I’m doing this so I have watched the show and I don’t like it either. It just wasn’t good. I only really liked Clay and hell sometimes I didn’t even really like him at some points.

I can’t do a non spoiler part because I just have to rant about everything so if you haven’t watched this you have to leave because I’m going to spoil you in this.

WARNING SPOILERS

SERISOUSLY JUST LEAVE

OKAY! So where the hell do I began? The first episode was good which surprised. It was pretty close to book besides some thing like making Hannah and Clay friends and giving more flashbacks and I didn’t hate it. Liked that it made them friends because I thought it would have been better for their relationship. I’m thinking my rating will be like a high 90% but then episode to rolled around and my rating and my liking dropped. It dropped like every episode.

Okay that’s start with the fact that Tony is like Hannah Baker’s freaking secret agent. He was being really weird and mysterious and it was annoying as hell. I didn’t like his character. His only purpose in the book was for Clay to steal the walkman from him which Clay does in the show but then Tony just shows up everywhere like some old guy that appears in fantasy movies to give warnings and inspirational messages and I found it so weird! I didn’t really like his character because for one like I said before he was weird and one that’s literally all he is around for. His character is only for being that and that’s it nothing else so you don’t get to learn anything about him that would make him interesting. Guess the fact that he’s a secret agent is what makes him an interesting character but I didn’t it like that.

Another thing I didn’t like which was something I was half way looking forward to was us getting a closer look at all the characters. We never met any other characters besides Clay and Hannah in the book of 13 Reasons Why so when I watched Christine’s review of the show she said that we get a closer look at the characters who have tapes and Hannah’s parents. The other characters that have tapes in this story suck. They aren’t great people and they for the first couple episodes they are going after Clay because they don’t want the tapes to go to Bryce who raped Hannah and is the worst out of all them. I’m like why you guys all still friends? You know what he did what the fuck are you guys doing? None of them are interesting and the story is trying to get me to connect with them but I can’t. We one don’t know a lot about them or see them in any scene where they are doing something good. I liked Hannah’s parents because they are going through something that is hard to go through and it’s probably the only thing that is shown well on this show.

Can we talk about the weird dream sequence with Hannah’s mom killing Clay? What was that? I mean I would understand why he would have that if he had listen to his tape and then had met up with Hannah’s mom and had that dream I would understand but he didn’t so what was the point. Also if you are going to make Clay and Hannah closer then they were in the book why is Clay saying that they weren’t close! What was that! They are clearly friends! Also can we talked about the fact that Hannah doesn’t even die the same way! In this she gets in the bath and cuts her wrist but in the book she takes pills. Why did we need to make this change? To make it more dramatic because that doesn’t look go on Netflix or the people who run the show. You literally changed her death to make it more dramatic.

Also they shouldn’t have add the suicide or the rape scenes to the show because it can trigger people and they knew. The people went to therapist and specialist to figure out how they should do these scenes and they were told not to do it because people would be triggered and they completely ignored that! The message is still the same for this show from the book which is that love can heal depression which I don’t agree and they have this whole thing were Clay feels guilty about Hannah because she said that he could have saved her if he loved her. I have two reaction for this which is no not true she has no right to tell him this because it’s not true. It doesn’t work like that. And two this boy cared about you so much. Yes he could have been a better friend at some points but he loved her. THIS SHOW MAKES ME SO MAD! I need to stop. Okay we were done! This show started out really well but with every episode I liked less and it got less accurate.

Accuracy: 43%

The character names were right, the people on the tapes were right but I didn’t remember Justin being on there twice. It wasn’t that close to the book and I won’t be watching it again. I didn’t have a fun time watching this. It was boring it has the same messages as the book which I didn’t like and the show runners did somethings that I didn’t agree with which is why I’m giving it a D.

Rating: D for being really boring

I’m not giving it an F because I do think that the acting is great and I did enjoy that first episode so I don’t think can give it an F. I didn’t enjoy it and I wouldn’t watch it again because it felt longer then 13 freaking episodes! Also WHY IS THERE TO BE A SEASON TWO! WE DON’T NEED A SEASON TWO! *sighs to calm down Okay I’m done. For now at least. I’m not going to watch season two because it probably has nothing to do with the book and can we talk about how weird it is that Netflix renewed this but canceled Girl Boss, Sense 8, and the Get Down. What the hell? I have a poll on Twitter to decide what book I should read next for Epic Adaptations so if you could please check that out.

img_3977

Right now it’s between The Handmaid’s Tale and Still Star-Crossed and I can’t decide so please help! I don’t know what post is coming up next but look out for it. I’m so glad I’m done reviewing this show. Have you guys watched this show? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way. You should follow my book club here and other social media links.

Screaming because EMOTIONS and a whole lot of Buffy references | The Carnelian Crow by Colleen Gleason

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing The Carnelian Crow by Colleen Gleason, the fourth book in the Stoker and Holmes series!

WARNING SPOILERS

C6_J-YDW0AE7Zq2

Rating: -A: Good story with characters that got better and a slow plot line

Oh my god! GUYS THIS BOOK LIKE I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO STARTED! I’ll start like this hi I’m Grace and earlier in the year I read this first three books in the Stoker and Holmes series by Colleen Gleason and I loved them. If you would like to hear my full thoughts on them then click right here to read the review. I was so excited for this book because the third book was so great and I love this series. The book follows Evaline Stoker, the sister of Bram Stoker, and Mina Holmes, the niece of Sherlock Holmes, and they are back at it solving crimes together and it’s amazing but at the same time this book fucked me and it fucked me up hard.

So I’m just jumping right to thing I want to talk first which was that I was right that we weren’t going to see the last Dylan! He pops up in the last chapter and I don’t get me wrong I was happy to see him but through out the book we are given all this development with Grayling and Mina’s relationship like in the beginning of the other books she calls him her nemesis but she doesn’t and they start began friends and IM LOVING IT!

I became accustomed to the feel of his leg brushing against my skirt, and I discovered I rather enjoyed the slight movement of the muscles in his arm beneath my hand.”

When I read that quote I was just dying because I ship them so much and Ambrose really likes her. He evens asks if she can start calling him by her name and I was hoping for them to kiss or start dating which the dating thing because he asks her out to the ball thing and I was facing palming when Mina was like what case are we going to solve by going to this ball and he is just like um.. we aren’t I asked because I wanted you to go with because I thought it would be nice.

Case. Right. Er…Miss Holmes, I regret to inform you that…och, well…that I had no particular case in mind to investigate tonight. I merely—that is to say—I merely thought it would be pleasant to attend the Yule Fête. With—er you .”

I blinked.

And suddenly, just as my bedchamber had seemed to shrink in size when he’d gone in to investigate the crow markings outside my window, so did the interior of the carriage all at once become much smaller.

Not in an uncomfortable way, but in a very… aware sort of way. A strangely pleasant way .

“I see . I -”

He rushed on, “I do hope you aren’t disappointed, Miss Holmes .”

“No. No, no, no, I’m not disappointed,” I said quickly, aware that my face had become undeniably warmer. I certainly hoped he couldn’t see what surely must be a bright red tint in my cheeks. “Not at all .”

“I’m relieved to hear that.” He hesitated, then continued, “After all, we had discussed perhaps meeting at the British Museum to take in the Japanese woodprint exhibit. And when Lady Cosgrove-Pitt insisted I attend the fête tonight, I…well, I thought of you.”

Now my cheeks felt as if they were on fire, and I shifted on the bench seat in an effort to move out of the small circle of light so as to hide the glow beneath my skin. Though it was so bright he probably could see it in the dark. “I am most obliged, Inspector.”

Oh Mina you are so smart but so obvious when it comes to man. Yeah so as I was saying I like Dylan. He is a good character, a big cinnamon roll, and he also cares about Mina but I can’t see them together. I talked about this in my last review for the three books, I don’t what them together because I don’t think that they are a good match for each other and I think Ambrose and Mina are a great pair and that really shows in this book as they work together and make something really great. But then Dylan comes back and he comes back because 2016 isn’t the same as it was before and he had to come back. I was happy to see him but at the same time I was like no. Dylan baby I love you but you couldn’t have come at a worst time.

Now let’s talk about my baby girl Evaline who is basically Buffy in Steampunk 1890s. I’m sad to say that #giveevalinelove2017 has failed. Evaline had such a sad storyline, I mean it wasn’t the sad I mean just the impact it had on her and the fact that she deserves real love makes it sad. So after the whole saying that if it came to then Evaline would kill Pix and then she hasn’t heard from him and then suddenly her sister in law Florence says that because of finances and Bram working on his novel that Evaline can return home to Ireland or she has to get married.

Evaline,” she began in a hard, impersonal voice. “It’s…it’s more than that. We… Well, Bram has been spending so much extra time working on his novel that he’s neglected our finances. Even worse, some of his investments weren’t very smart, and with the change in laws and taxes and tariffs…well, things are dire. So dire, in fact, that by the first of the year, we will be faced with two choices: go back to Ireland and move in with your parents, or…” She hesitated, then rushed on. “Or you must marry.”

Evaline is just like how ever heard of a vampire hunter getting married and I’m like no one.

It was part of my heritage. Part of my history.

I couldn’t…

But I couldn’t get married, either.

Whoever heard of a vampire hunter getting married?”

Normal girls marry vampires and Evaline isn’t a normal girl, she’s like Buffy and Buffy never married anyone. Also I’m thinking Pix is more her Spike then her Angel. I’m not saying that’s my official opinion but that’s what I’m leaning towards right now.

Evaline starts looking for suitors and she mets this guy named Ned *what a basic ass name but she still holds a torch for Pix and I feel so bad for this because I have a bad feeling that my baby is going to be alone. Buffy ended up alone and that’s because being a vampire hunter is no easy life. She gets engaged to this Ned guy and the what do you know Pix finally returns! I think it’s weird that I finally like Pix and then suddenly he has such a small part in this book. WHY?!?!?!

The book has kind of a sad ending as Dylan and Miss. Alder return yeah she was missing the whole book until the end. Then Ambrose arrests Pix because there was a death and he’s been accused of doing it and both Ambrose and Pix seem so sad because Evaline is getting married and Dylan has returned and he knows that Mina and him like each other and their both upset and I’m like no please don’t have them get all this development and then abandoned it! Please Colleen Gleason! DON’T DO THIS TO ME!! PLEASE DON’T DO THIS!!

Neither of them gave us a backward glance.”

Even though I loved this book, unfortunately there were two things I didn’t really like. For one the writing style seemed different for some reason and I don’t know it really enjoy that and for some reason it has like future Mina and Evaline like interrupting the story and I didn’t remember that happening before. Did I just miss that before in the last three books or is that new? I don’t know I thought it was weird. Also for some reason the feel of the book didn’t feel the same to me. It’s probably because Evaline and Mina aren’t together a lot and that made me upset because they are such a great team together.

Other than that I enjoyed this book a lot and I’m so sad that this series is coming to an end. We only have one more book! I DON’T WANT IT TO END! AND CAN MINA AND GRAYLING GET TOGETHER IN THE NEXT BOOK? AND CAN #GIVEEVALINELOVE2017 A THING? I’m excited for book five and I can’t wait to see how Colleen Gleason wraps the series up. I think I’m going to have to post more then once a week for a while because I have so much to do! Also I have a poll on Twitter for my next book of the month so please go vote on that. The choices are between the Handmaid’s Tale and Still Star-Crossed which is winning. Have you guys read this book? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it?

This was worth the wait! | Spiderman: Homecoming review

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about Spiderman: Homecoming which was directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker!

WARNING SPOILERS

img_3386

Rating: -A: Good story with characters that got better and a slow plot line

Who else was looking forward for this movie? Because I’ve have been looking forward for a new spiderman movie since Tom Holland appeared in Civil War. I made post talking about everything I was looking forward to and was scared about this film which you can read here and I even put this on things I’m looking forward to this year which you can read here. I was excited for this film but I had a right to be scared because let’s look at the past couple spiderman movies. I made plans with my best friend and we went to the six o’clock showing together and like no one was there which surprised me. Like even the ticket lady was like it, make sure to come early because it’s been a popular choice today.

I can now say that this film was amazing and I loved it! I loved Tom Holland as Peter Parker and I love Ned and I loved Zendaya who had a smaller part then I thought. This film was a Spiderman film. It makes you laugh, you get emotional, and it is so great! Is it my favorite Spiderman movie? No I think Spiderman 2 is my favorite like here are my favorites in order.

  1. Spider-man 2
  2. Spider-man: Homecoming
  3. The Amazing Spider-man
  4. Spider-man
  5. The Amazing Spider-man 2
  6. Spider-man 3

As much as I want to put this as my favorite there were some scenes weren’t as intense. Like the scene where Peter is trying to keep the ship from falling apart that wasn’t that of a intense. It was no stopping a train after Doc Oct blows up the railways and Peter holds it back with all his strength. That scene is tense as hell. This movie didn’t completely lack it though I mean that last fight at the beach with the fire and that other scene that happened before that with Peter under the rocks trying to get out so that he can stop the Vulture. I was like crying because it was like a moments out of the comics and I was like ‘Abby it’s out of the rubble! it’s out of the rubble!’. That scene was such a great scene, that was my favorite scene. Tom was fucking great actor in that scene.

I loved Tom in this movie, he is great spiderman. He is so dorky and nerdy and cute and very time things went wrong I just wanted to hug him! Peter was so precious in this film. I loved it. I also loved the other characters in the story like Ned and Michelle who I guess is the MCU version of MaryJane because at the end of the film she is like my name is MJ so I was right about her being MJ but I was also wrong about her being MJ. I loved these characters they are so great and funny. The scene where Ned finds out that Peter is Spiderman was so funny. The death star just falls on the floor and Peter is like what I’m not spiderman and I’m dude I know you what to keep this secret but you can’t get out of this. You’re wearing the Spiderman outfit, it’s too good to be a cosplay, you were on the ceiling like there is no way to lie about this.

Ned starts asking Peter all these questions at a fast pace like are you an average and Peter is like basically yeah and I’m like oh honey. Aunt May comes in the room and it’s just Peter shirtless in his underwear with Ned and she just doesn’t comment on it which was so weird for me. Like your nephew is in his room in his underwear with his best friend and you just right going to say anything about it. Has this happened before? Or does she not care? I’m just wondering because i think it is weird. The next day Ned is asking him all these questions about his powers and I’m laughing because they are some weird questions but like if you had never heard of spiderman then these are like the types of questions I feel like someone would ask. Ned is a fun character and I had so much watching him and Peter on screen. ‘I’m the guy in the chair’. I love when Peter is in trouble and then it looks like the shocker going kill him, Ned gets the web thing and saves him that was so great.

I also loved Zendaya. She has a smaller part then I expected but I still thought she was great. I mean she just pops up and says some one-liners but it’s great. So like I said before she is the character Michelle, she is not Mary Jane but at the end of the film she like my friends call me MJ and me and friend were Oh oh oh ohhh. I think she will probably Peter’s love interest because before Peter leaves she gives him like this look. If you saw the movie then you know what I’m talking about. I loved Liz Allen. I thought her and Peter were cute. I knew that something was gonna happen and that they weren’t going to get together because I know that they don’t together in the comics and they don’t get together in the film. I don’t know why they had that almost kiss in the trailer because it happen in the film.

I called that her dad was the Vulture. Sort if. I said it like a if what thing. I was like if her dad is the Vulture or works for the Vulture how awkward would that be. Then he gets to her house and the door opens and it’s the vulture and I’m like oh shit oh shit oh shit! That final battle was so epic and great. I loved it.

Okay I loved Tony in this movie. He just wants to be Peter’s dad and protected him and I loved it. He wants what is best for him. Also Tony and Pepper might be getting married that could be happening. When the Iron spider suit appeared, I was like whoa but then I was trying to remember what it called. My friend couldn’t remember either when the film ended, we went to the parking lot and asked her brother what it called. The film ends with Peter putting the suit on and Aunt May seeing him which I thought was so funny. I liked Aunt May and I thought she and Peter had a good relationship. There are a lot of jokes about how young she is. Also Flash I loved how we changed from him from dumbass joke to on the smart team thing that I don’t remember what it’s called with Peter. I mean he is still a dick but I liked him. Tony Revolori did great job and you known that they did a good job when they make you hate their character.

The end credit scenes though was so great! So the mid credit was with the Vulture keeping Peter’s identity secret and the end credit scene. I waited forever for it and then Captain America appears and started talking about being patient and I’m dying!

This movie was amazing and so much fun to watch. If you didn’t see this movie then why haven’t you seen it. Like go see it. I know that we’ve seen a lot of Spiderman films and in the end they have flopped but this one gives me hope that it could work out! IT COULD WORK OUT IN THE END! IT COULD WORK! If you have seen it though then what did you think? Did you love it? I loved it! Did you hate it? I hope you didn’t hate. If you did I’m sorry but I loved it.

13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher BOOK review / RANT

Greetings Earthling! Today I’m talking about 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, not the show, which is also my July book of the month!

WARNING SPOILERS

AND COMPLAINTS FROM A VERY BITTER GIRL

BUT FIRST A MESSAGE FROM THAT GIRL

HEY EVERYONE! So I need you to read this part before we began the review. I need to say  this because I have a feeling that I might make some people upset for this review. I know that we all have different opinions and the world and I know that I can’t change people’s opinions but I don’t want to hurt anyones feelings. So if you liked 13 Reasons Why then you need to not read this review. I say this again in the review but I’m going to give you this warning now. Okay? Okay. You can continue.

Rating: D – Nothing seem to happen. The characters had a bad attitude or were boring until the end. Story didn’t know what it wanted.

You can’t stop the future
You can’t rewind the past
The only way to learn the secret
…is to press play.”

*sighs deeply of frustration and disappointment about the kids in my generation. So a lot of you have probably heard about the show that claims it is based off this book. It’s not, it just has the same name as the book. If you couldn’t tell I’m very against the show. If you like the show or the book then I think you should leave because it’s about to get mean. I’m sorry.

This is my second time reading this book, I read it the first time in like 2014 and I liked it. I didn’t love it mainly because reading books about suicide has always been a touchy subject for me. I gave it three stars the first time which is a rating I have given to another books that deal with suicide like Playlist for the Dead and All The Bright Places. I thought it was okay book that dealt for a subject that is hard to talk about, trust me I know I’m writing about it and it’s hard. It’s also hard to read. For this book and All the Bright Places, I know that these book have a lot of controversy. Some find them great and these books helped them but for people like me it wasn’t like that.

I reread this book because it is my July book of the month for my book club and because the show had come out and I didn’t remember a lot. I haven’t seen the show yet but I will. I started watching it but I could already see that it was different for the book and mainly because it was popular so I decided that I would wait for the hype to die down before watching the show. Like I said this book wasn’t for me but I still liked it then I reread it and I didn’t like it as much.

This book follows Hannah Baker and Clay Jenson, Hannah has committed suicide and Clay was a guy who always wanted to be Hannah’s friend or maybe something a little bit more but he never got the chance. A couple days after her death, he revives a books full of tapes that has Hannah talking about people who did things to cause her to take her own life and there are seven tapes which are doubled sided, making it 13 Thirteen Reasons. The only people who get them are the ones who have a tape and Clay is on one of these tapes. Now I like Jay Asher and I like what he was going for, I got to read some interview questions that where in the back of his book. He talked about how he went around and talked to girls and what they struggled in high school but the general theme of this book bothers me. Which is that love can heal depression.

This is a trope and an idea that has been passed around through different shows and books and I hate it. Love can help you through depression but it can’t heal depression. This is shown by the fact that Hannah says that no one really seem care enough about her and if they had then she would have been better.

A lot of you cared, just not enough.”

I hate this belief and I hate it keeps coming up in different things. Hannah also blames everyone for taking her own life. Taking your life is your own decision and even though things bit have happened to lead to this decision still you shouldn’t do that. I didn’t like the fact that Clay is blamed for not loving Hannah and not being there for her and it’s said he could have saved her. I just didn’t like it! I did like some parts of this book though. I like *well I didn’t really like but i found it heartbreaking how Clay wanted to be there for Hannah before she died. Clay is a good character and honestly he was the one out of the all the types that I cared about and he didn’t do anything terrible to her. Also even though I’ve complained about Hannah I did like her and she didn’t deserve anything that happened to her *no one deserves to go through that. I mean she got her first kiss and then a rumor went around that she and Justin did more then kiss and everyone at school started believe and then her friends abandoned her and it’s so sad.

Another thing that I liked is the message that our actions and what we do have affects on people that surround us. I mean one of the reasons that I think Hannah does these tapes is to tell everyone about how their actions effected her and her life. I mean Justin started a rumor that everyone believed and then her friends stopped being her friends and a lot of other stuff followed. One of the things that you should think about after reading this book is your actions and how the affect others.

The book also deals with what people think about you and saying terrible things about you and also rape. Near the end of the book, Hannah gets rape by a guy and it’s a really hard scene. Just reading it was hard. This whole book was hard. I’m sorry if you liked this book and it changed your life then I’m happy for you but it didn’t have the same affect on me. I thought this book was okay, I just don’t like the messages through out it. The only message that I liked was that the things we do and say have effects on people. I’ll be having my Spiderman: Homecoming review coming next week followed by my 13 Reasons Why show review. Have you guys read this book? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way.
