Fast, dramatic, intense. Welcome to my first film review. Fitting that it is a story about F1 racing. I have been getting into F1 more and more because my boyfriend and I have been binging Formula 1: Drive to Survive on Netflix. I'm clearly obsessed and find the history and the current drivers extremely fascinating and entertaining. Not only has the show widened my view of the drivers as regular people but it also has taught me a lot about the sport. This film was similar bec
Cozy holiday romance with shocking twists. One Day in December by Josie Silver was exactly what I needed when I first started reading it. It is a rom-com with some drama and disaster. It was cozy, it was cute, it was interesting, it was suspenseful. I loved that it was set in England and spanned over years of time. This made me really grow to love the characters and care about their journey throughout the book. I do have to admit that I got about halfway through and had to st
Now that the semester is over I have so much more time for reading! Hopefully, that means I will actually write more reviews and posts because I definitely was slacking for a while. I did finish a few books and have watched a couple of movies recently that I wanted to talk about so I might get those out this weekend! Quick update as usual.. I'm excited to get some more things done!
I've kind of been tempted to write about other topics that I'm interested in or other things that I have been studying because I find them very interesting. One thing I've been analyzing more lately has been movies. I'm at the end of my second film class, this one being on Women and Film. I have been watching more films with women such as romantic comedies and I have been thinking about tropes, stereotypes, and other elements more as well as the story and the characters so I
So I have this tendency to take a huge stack of books and try to read them all at once but I managed to barely finish any within that stack. I was thinking, maybe I should try to limit myself on the number of books I read and try to actually push through and finish what I'm reading. I was thinking of doing one physical novel, one cozy, and a nonfiction theme to my constant currently reading pile. I feel like that's a broad enough genre change if I need to switch between them.
More like "Red, White, & Royal Poo" This book is supposed to be for adults yet it reads like a terrible YA fanfic of a pretend first son and a pretend Prince of England who I'm assuming is supposed to emulate Prince Harry if he were gay. This was rec'd on my discord book server for February (yeah I know I'm a bit late) for a "romance" book to fit Valentine's themed month. Well, it wasn't a romance, it was "erotic" trash. I have never read a "romance" book that had as little c
Could you make the decision to put an innocent man away forever? The Holdout by Graham Moore is a legal thriller that follows the jury members in a controversial trial and again ten years later when one of them is found murdered. The main character Maya Seale is the one juror who changed the outcome of the trial that may be the cause of the other juror member's death. This book not only is a compelling and fast-paced novel but it also focuses on race issues and social class i
