What I’m Reading/What I Recommend

I absolutely love books. I’m not to picky either. I typically prefer fiction, and once I start a good book, it’s practically impossible to pull me away from it. Today I want to share with you a few of the books I’ve been reading, and that I want to read.

  1. Since You’ve Been Gone (Morgan Matson)

Since You’ve Been Gone is book I got for Christmas, and it is really good. It’s about a girl that is separated from her best friend, who suddenly just poofed. All that her BFF leaves behind is a to do list, which consists of things the main character would never do otherwise. Yes her friend disappeared, but don’t worry if you aren’t a mystery fan, this is not a scary story. I would highly recommend it, if you are into teen books. It’s definitely not for everyone. I haven’t finished it, but I’m hooked.

 

2. The Rose Society (Marie Lu)

The Rose Society is the second book in the series Young Elites. Young Elites is about a girl who had the plague when she was younger, and she survived. She was left with a gift, a power to create illusions so real that they can kill you. This series is basically for Young Adult readers. It is by Marie Lu, who also wrote Legend, another favorite series of mine. I like this series so much. My summary of this is so vague, but if you’re interested, I encourage you to check out a better summary. It is my second favorite series I’ve ever read.

 

3. Secrets to Breaking Into the Film and Television Business (Dean Silvers)

This is a more fictional book, but it is good. I haven’t made much progress, but this is really interesting. The film business is something I’ve always liked, and this book tells me how to get there if I’m interested in getting a career here. If you are into a good educational read, you can learn a lot from this fantastic book.

 

4. The Winner’s Curse (Marie Rutkowski)

Where do I start? I’m not far into this book. I had just finished Rose Society and I was looking for a new book. I knew there was little chance that I could find a book to rival the one I’d just read. But it has. The Winner’s Curse is very good. It’s about a girl who lives in a rich society and find a slave, they have chemistry. I haven’t got very far, but it’s very good, and very addictive.

My 8 Choices for Good Movies to See This Year

There are quite a few interesting sounding movies coming out in the coming year. Here is a list of 8 movies I’m interested in. These are not in order. 

1.Guardians of the Galaxy 2

I saw the first one, and I’m hoping this one can live up to the hype. I first found Guardians of the Galaxy in a trailer that was showing at a cinema I went to. I think that I was going to see Avengers 2 or some other Marvel movie when the trailer came on. Instantly I turned around and said to my mom, we need to see that movie. So now I need to see this movie.

2.  Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Actually the first Pirates movie came out the year I was born, but Pirates of the Caribbean might have been the first pg-13 series I’ve ever seen. I’m excited for this one, and I hope that it’s good.

3. Wonder Woman

I’m more of a Marvel superhero movies kind of girl, but I hope that this woman can change my way of thinking about DC movies.

4. Spider-Man Homecoming

There is a new Spider-man in town and I hope that he can be as good as the last. I didn’t like him at first, but I’m starting to. Go Tom Holland!

 

5. Cars 3

I own this series too, so I’m interested. The second cars was my favorite movie for a long time. Not to mention, the plot for this story sounds interesting. Check it out for yourself sometime.

6.  The Circle

It’s all about technology and surveillance. The main character (played by Emma Watson) is hired to help a company (owned by Tom Hank’s character) that pushes people’s personal boundaries. What will she do? It kind-of sounds interesting to me.

7. Star Wars: the Last Jedi

I don’t think that these movies are as good as LucasFilms but man, Rogue One was pretty okay! Maybe this one can change my mind?

8. War for the Planet of the Apes

When I rented Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, it was high on my list of favorite movies. I’m hoping that this one’s just as good, and I’m interested.

 

Well there they all are, 8 movies I want to see this year. I’m really looking forward to seeing at least a few of them in theaters. Which ones do you agree with. Which ones would you change or add? There are a few I’m on the fence about. I’m excited for this year’s movies though. There are quite a few good ones.

A Dog’s Purpose Cancellation

Perhaps you have already heard of this; A Dog’s Purpose (a new movie)’s premiere has been cancelled. First, what is this movie about? It’s about a dog that is born with a loving owner, but grows old. He finds that he comes back to life as a different dog each time he dies. His goal is to find his first owner and somehow let him know that he is back, and to help his owner through a difficult time in the owner’s later life.

This movie sounds nice, and I was looking forward to seeing it, but then I saw a video on the news. It was a video that had a German Shepherd, who seemed to be forced into a fast rush of water. Now at first I was really surprised and angry, but then I learned more about what was happening.  I saw this video on the news before any statement from the movie makers was made. But I was curious about what was happening.

Now I don’t know if I believe this or not, and you can see if you do too in the video below, but according to ABC, this was not abuse at all. The German Shepherd was just not comfortable with entering on that specific side of the “pool”. The video was edited. As soon as he was on the other side again, he was very happy to be swimming.

Still, the A Dog’s Purpose premiere is cancelled, and I’m not sure if they will continue with it or not. The video below should help you make your own opinion. Is it still abuse? Should they have cancelled the premiere?
