This tag was created by faultydevices here is the original video

All you have to do is answer these bookish questions based on social media sites!

Twitter- You’re favourite shortest book

The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K Rowling 200px-Tales_of_Beedle_the_Bard

I loved this book, even as reading them just as stories they were very fun. My favourite of the stories in the book were- ‘The fountain of fair fortune’ and ‘The tale of the three brothers’.

Facebook- A book everybody pressured you to read

The Fault in our Stars by John Green

The_Fault_in_Our_Stars

I think I read this just as it was being announced that it was being made into a movie. The hype of this book was unreal, so I decided to give in and just read it.

Tumblr- A book you read before it was cool

Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling

harrypotter

I am not saying I was here from the beginning but I read them when it was more uncool to read Harry Potter. I am pretty sure it was the first proper book I ever read.

MySpace- A book you don’t remember whether you liked it or not

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

I remember loving the series, its one of my favourites. But after hearing so many bad things about Mockingjay my own opinions kind of got lost. I cant remember if I was disappointed by the ending or if I liked it. I really need to re-read the book.

Instagram- A book that was so beautiful you had to instagram it

My life next door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

my life next door

This was the last book I put on instagram due to the prettiness of the cover. SO SUMMERY!

Youtube- A book you wish could be turned into a movie

The selection by Kiera Cass

I think the first book could be adapted into a great movie. I don’t know about the rest of the series but I think the first one would be so good.

Goodreads- A book you would recommend to everyone

Vicious by V.E Schwab

I wasn’t expecting to like this book as much as I did. I think everyone should give this book a shot even though its adult I think really anyone could read it.

Skype- A book with characters you wish you could talk to instead of just reading about

Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead

Vampire academy

Wow I haven’t mentioned this book yet. I would love to talk to these characters (especially Adrian) although I would probably have to do it at night.

Catching fire review

Catching fire review

HUNGER-GAMESPlot Summary:

“The film begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.”

The second instalment of the Hunger Games series is a definite improvement on the previous film, which is impossible to believe seeing the already well adapted amazing first movie. This is darker yet much more exciting than the Hunger Games an adaptation of the trilogy written by Suzanne Collins.

Francis Lawrence who took over directing the film franchise from Gary Ross, made many changes between the two films, one of the main filming differences is that he decided to use IMAX mostly for the scenes with the most action when Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the other victors are in the Arena, this makes Official-Catching-Fire-Image-Katniss-Finnick-Training-Centerthe whole experience of watching the film more realistic.

The beginning of the movie had an exciting start and gave us more of an incite to Katniss and Gales relationship (Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth) who previously had not much of a major role in the first film. The beginning also showed off the completely new and original scenes which were not in the book which was a nice surprising for fans of the books.

This movie had a mixture of emotional moving scenes and many humours scenes (usually involving new comer to the cast Jena Malone who plays Johanna Mason a previous victor who gets picked to take part in the quarter quell)

All actors and actresses represented the characters perfectly and all new comers fit into the world perfectly, although wary of many for example Finnick Odair a fan favourite, when first announced that Sam Claflin had got the part many were disappointed and did not set there hopes to high for him, however after seeing his acting and appearance in the film, he looked and sounded the exact Finnick in the books and showed off his funny charisma perfectly. However the most impressive performance by far was that of Josh Hutcherson who played one of the love interests in the film Peeta Mellark, he delivers a role of emotional intelligence and subtle understanding that I hadn’t believed him capable of and I had underestimated his acting skill.

The film had an exciting beginning, middle and end filled with beautiful scenery from New Jersey to Hawaii, with incredible acting all the way through. Now one of the best book to movie adaptations ever made.
