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

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.

Thor review

Thor review

thor_ver3Plot Summary:

“At the centre of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world  sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

As someone who hasn’t read the Thor comics nor know a lot about Norse mythology, I do not know how faithful this film, however like most Marvel films although very different and not very accurate, still very entertaining. The viewer starts with no attachments to the arrogant leading character- Thor (Chris Hemsworth) who seems to be always disobeying the rules, but as the plot moves on, you begin to see the character develop into a likeable hero and begins to behave like a true Marvel leading role.
Loki-loki-thor-2011-24178896-2000-1333Although looking the part Chris’s acting seems a little bland to start with compared to Tom Hiddleston’s acting of one of the villains of the film, Loki, Tom showed a snarky and mischievous side to the character. Viewers of the film feel sympathy towards Loki (even though being the villain of the film) at his realisation of his tragic childhood, credit has to be given to the fantastic acting from Tom. The love interest to Thor- Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), a scientist who helps Thor adapt to his new surroundings, and although great acting and chemistry between the two, it seems a little insta-love and unrealistic. The human sidekicks to the film including Jane brought a hint of comedy to the film and all behaved realistically as well as the struggle of Thor attempting to fit in with the human world is also very humorous.

A lot of the parts of the film could of easily been explained much better for example the tesseract although this discovery leads on to The Avengers, however this means that the viewer is slightly confused through out the whole film. In comparison to previous Marvel films this focuses on the characters more than action, as these action scenes- although being made very well-are seen very rarely.

Overall, Thor is a very well made and scripted film with a great cast with a mixture of genres: Action/Romance/Humour and it would be very hard to find a person who did not enjoy this film thoroughly as it is suitable for a mixture of audiences.
