Book Reviews

Storm by Brigid Kemmerer

My edition: Kindle


Series: Elemental book 1

Rating: 3.5

Review: Becca is going home after a self-defense class, when she sees two guys one one fight. She runs her car over to help. She finds Chris Merrick laying unconscious on the ground. His clothes were ripped and he had bruises all over.She takes Chris home where she runs into his brothers Michael, Gabriel and Nick. There is also a new guy to the town. His name is Hunter and he kind of has a thing for Becca. So does Chris. Becca thinks that they have another motive in place due to what her ex-boyfriend has been spreading around.

There is something going on with Becca and Chris at first then it switches to Becca and Hunter. A little love triangle going on. A little hard to follow there. The book had some action. In my opinion Becca should stay single. But that is my opinion. I liked the story. The writing could be a little better. I wish I got a paragraph break from the characters so when Kemmerer switch P.O.V.s  I didn’t get all confused. Can’t wait till I get the next book.


Movie Reviews

Into the Woods staring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, and more big stars.

Okay so this movie combines a lot of fairy tales into one. I was so excited to sit down and watch this. When I first saw the commercial and saw Johnny Depp, “I was like yep. I’m watching it.” Well my fiance (Y) and I went to Redbox and rented it for date night. I was excited. I almost started bouncing up and down in my seat. We got home, settled into the couch, and pressed play…


Movie: The movie is about all the fairy tales wrapped into one. A baker and his wife want a baby but they find out that the family was cursed due to the Baker’s father stealing beans out of a witch’s garden. They can reverse the curse if they get these enchanted items. The items are red cloak (Red Riding Hood), golden hair (Rapunzel), cow white as milk (Jack and the bean stalk), and a golden slipper (somehow Cinderella). If they get all these item to the witch (who cannot touch these items) the spell will be broken.

My opinion: This was the biggest disappointment. Like ever. Too much singing even for Disney. Way too much. Johnny Depp had like three to five minutes in the whole movie. The song he sang was horrible too. He looked like and sounded like a pedophile more than a wolf. (Biggest disappointment of the movie) All my friends were saying how they loved this movie. Why?? Prince Charming was a bigger idiot than in the book. (Like seriously you can’t tell the face you were looking at all night apart from other girls?) The hype around this movie made it seem so much better than it actually was. I thought the movie was over to find out that the giant’s wife was mad as ever and want Jack’s life. So the movie then continued.  I wanted to scream in frustration. Y left half way through just to go do something else, hence leaving me to deal with the rest of the movie alone. I just wanted everyone to stop singing. Oh spoiler alert. The baker’s wife and Prince charming cheat together after Charming is married to Cinderella for more then a few hours.
