A Monthly Recap: July


Hello Everyone!

Guess what!? I ACTUALLY managed to keep up with my blog schedule this month!! Are you proud of me?! We'll see how August goes, because I'm going to Portugal next week, so that probably means a blogging break towards the end of the month. That's not really bad news however because it means I can start scheduling posts for September, as next year I start exams.. Eeekk! I have no idea how this will impact posts, but it may mean that at some point I will just post when I can, or post less frequently. We'll see what happens, so don't take my word for it just yet. I'll definitely tell you all about any changes, though. :)


Reviews:
Awesome/Important Stuff:
Around the Blogosphere:
  • I am LOVING Cuddlebuggery's Buzz Worthy News posts at the moment. I always look forward to them, so here's the latest one. All of them are informative, funny and will get you caught up on the bookish world in no time. :)
  • Ruby has done a great post on her top ten book endings! I really enjoyed it, and IT MADE ME WANT TO READ ALL THE BOOKS.
  • Amber wrote an Event Report on Rainbow Rowell's signing in London! I really enjoyed reading it, and she made it personal which, to me, made it very unique!
  • Sophie has also done an event recap but it's on YALC. You should have a look, especially if you didn't get to go, as it the first proper event dedicated to YA in the UK (I think... NO PROMISES!!)
Favourite Book:

18665259

  • The Great Escape - Ilse DeLange: This song literally fits every YA book EVER. And I love it. No, I ADORE IT. Go listen.
  • Stutter - Marianas Trench: I had never heard of the band Marianas Trench before I listened to this song. I really like their songs and it's none of that mainstream stuff, in my opinion.
  • Chandelier - Sia: I really like Sia's voice, plus the dancing in this video is incredible- definitely worth watching.
  • Budapest - George Ezra: This is just such an enjoyable song. The beat is really nice, and I just really like it.
  • Oblivion - Bastille: I only actually heard this today, but I love it already. Bastille always has such good songs, and this is no exception.
Take Away the Books:
  • I want to share with you this amazing piece of choreography I found on youtube. It's to Just Give Me A Reason (Pink, ft Nate Reuss) and it's undeniably beautiful. 
  • I did my Grade 6 Ballet Exam! WHHOOOOPP! I only get my results in September but wish me luck!
  • SUMMEEERRR IS HERE. I'm going to Portugal, which means there will be a post telling you about everything that happens this summer. It should go up in September, hopefully!
Are you all ready for August? Doing anything interesting or fun? Tell me! Have a great month!

Bye! xx

Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

Hello Everyone!

I got this book from the publisher via Edelweiss, so thank you for sending to me what turned out to be such an enjoyable novel! It was really good, and I love the cover!



17668473
Title: Prisoner of Night and Fog
Author: Anne Blankman
Series: Prisoner of Night and Fog #1 
Source: Publisher (Edelweiss)
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Published: April 22nd 2014
No. of Pages: 401
In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her "uncle" Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf's, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.

Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler. And Gretchen follows his every command.

Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can't stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can't help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she's been taught to believe about Jews.
As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed? -(Goodreads.) 
4.5 stars: Page agrees this book was wonderful, almost
amazing.

DIY: Book Jar

Hello Everyone!

One of my biggest bookish problems is deciding what I should read next. I feel like there are some things I should read because a publisher has sent them to me, but then I don't feel like reading them at that moment and it's just so complicated... 
     This DIY has been flying around the internet for agggeeeess, but I thought that maybe I should try it out, and share it with you to see if we can put some of our bookish problems to rest for ever! Enjoy, and I would love to see photos of your recreations if you try this out! Just tweet me @WeavingPages

You Will Need:
  • A Pen
  • Paper
  • A Jar
  • Patterned Paper/Magazine Scraps
  • Fabric Scraps/Ribbon
  • Glue


The first thing I did was write out all the books on my TBR pile. Alternatively, you can write out the books you want to buy if your TBR pile isn't too big at the moment. :)


I then cut the book titles out and folded them once or twice. Afterwards, I placed them in this jar I had around my house.


I found an old magazine and scoured it for any interesting designs. I had a little round pot that was around the size of the top of my jar lid, and as I went through my magazine, I drew around it on any designs I liked. In the end, I decided on the blue coral one, and saved the others for another time.


After setting my paper pattern aside, I found this piece of fabric and cut it into a long strip. I took my glue (I used Mod Podge) and drew a line around the outside of the jar with it. I took my strip of fabric and adhered it to this line of glue, tying a ribbon with the fabric I had left.


As the fabric dried, I took the Mod Podge and used it to stick my paper to my lid. Mod Podge dries clear and has a nice finish, meaning that I also placed it on the surface of the paper too.


This is my end result! I love the contrast of the blue with the gold, and I'm hoping this might help me to choose which book to read next!! So far, I've used this to pick out prisoner of night and fog, and each time I get a new book I'll add it to my jar.

Bye! xx

Joint Review: Picture Perfect by Holly Smale


Hello Everyone!

The lovely Arianne who co-blogs over at Reading With ABC agreed to do a joint review with me, because she is awesome and decided she could put up with me for a bit. ;) Anyway, I hope you enjoy this review! I'm in Blue and Arianne is in Red.

18665259Rita: How would you sum up Picture Perfect in one word?

Arianne: RESPLENDENT. (It sounds like something Harriet would say, so I think it's fitting.) 

What about you?

I HAVE LITERALLY HAD TO GO GET A DICTIONARY. I understand what it means now. Hmm, I'd say it was A-MIX-OF-LAUGHTER-AND-EMOTIONAL-TURMOIL. Yep. One word. Just one.

How would you describe the Geek Girl books for someone who's never read them before?

I would describe the Geek Girl books as a spontaneously perfect orchestra of laughter and reader investment. Seriously. You get so invested that my feelings were in knots throughout Picture Perfect especially. I do think that PP was much more emotional than the last two, which I think we're more laughy.. (Not a word...) How about you??

Teenage girl is a geek. Girl is spotted by a modelling agency. Girl has adventures in spectacular cities but not before resorting to hiding under table. Under said table, girl meets gorgeous boy named Nick Hidaka. Girl spends most of her time trying not to fall over on catwalks. Girl's writer then WRINGS OUT YOUR HEART LIKE A CLOTH FOR THE NEXT THREE BOOKS.

YES. YES. YES.

What was your favourite thing (NO SPOILERS) about Picture Perfect??

Nick. He will never not be my favourite thing about this series. And this line: "The boy smells of oranges. That's just weird."

(For anyone who has read the book, I'm also quite partial to the text sent on page 407.)

What about you, Rita? Did you have a favourite part? (I figure you've gone to remind yourself of the text on page 407, so feel free to take your time.) 

Ahaha!! My favourite thing? Probably how Holly Smale manages to make a family so perfect just because they are loving, awkward and at times, slightly dysfunctional. 

Harriet's got a great support network, especially in her parents - and what makes them even better is that they're actually not a 'picture perfect' family. They're constantly frazzled, they misunderstand each other, they don't always pay attention when they should, but they come through for each other in the end and that's what counts. (Sahmeless self-promotion: I actually name-dropped Harriet's dad and stepmum as examples of 'present' parents in YA in a recent discussion. They don't get everything right, but they take a very active role in the books.)

Is there anything else from Picture Perfect you'd like to see more of in YA?

Hmm.. Actually what I quite like is the fact that the Geek Girl series is a sort of semi-autobiography!! It's really interesting because you know parts of it are based on things that happened in real life to the author, which also makes you feel more connected, kind of? :) I quite like it when biographies are like stories, even though I don't read many! What about you??

Also, how much did you laugh reading Picture Perfect compared to the last two??

I think the trend for semi-autobiographical YA is really starting to pick up - just look at the articles promoting Solitaire by Alice Oseman and the myriad books being published by famous Youtubers and you'll see that! But I also like that Picture Perfect is memorable, because it's fearless and stands out from the crowd.

I think I laughed more reading the first Geek Girl book because Harriet's voice was so different and unexpected back then, but Picture Perfect came pretty close! This time around, I didn't enjoy her habit of spouting facts and figures so much - it's as if she's hiding behind general knowledge but hasn't found her true love yet. I think that's going to play a big role in future books. Was there anything you didn't like about the book?

I agree completely with it standing out. The topic of Youtubers publishing books is an interesting one, but that's a discussion for another day!

I felt that too! I see what you mean about the facts, but I still enjoy them anyway! I did feel that Picture Perfect was much more emotional than  the last two, which I felt focused more on the humour. PP was where I think everything started to crash down on Harriet, and she really felt the effects. I think we saw another side of her, and I liked that.

Did I not like anything..? I don't think so... WAIT. I'M WRONG. I STRONGLY DISLIKE CALEB. I WANT TO HIT HIM. I WANT TO SLAP HIM TILL HE GOES DIZZY. FEEL MY WRATH, CALEB-THE-IDIOT.

What did you think of all the new characters, as well as the ones that came back??

CALEB IS HIDEOUS. That is all.

As for the other new characters, I hated Kenderall! Not in a 'it ruined the book for me' way, but in a 'this author is seriously good if she can provoke such a strong reaction' way - if that makes sense! Picture Perfect sees Harriet subjected to quite a lot of peer pressure, and despite her characteristic intellect, she's just not equipped to recognise it. I think that was a very realistic storytelling decision by Holly Smale, even if the reader could spot what has happening to Harriet from a mile away! What did you think of Kenderall, Fleur and the new characters?

Yes!! I was really unsure about Kenderall.. I LOATHED the pressure that she was putting on Harriet and the things that were happening because of that. I just wanted to grab Harriet and refuse to let her do any of those things Kenderall told her to do. Peer Pressure is a very real thing, and like you, I'm glad Holly Smale drew attention to that. On the other hand, I felt bad for Kenderall because by the end I had realised, like Harriet, that she didn't know any better and I felt really sorry for her... Fleur is a similar matter. At first, I was so confused as to what was happening, and I started to get annoyed in return. Then I got to the end of the book and this crushing sense of reality hit meabout what was really going on... it was kind of devastating. I HATED, HATED, seeing her like that, and I hated even more the industry that had caused that to happen in the first place. Harriet really is lucky to have had Yuka..

The Geek Girl series takes very real issues like bullying and peer pressure and shows that they can affect anyone, anywhere, from the classroom to the catwalk. That's such an important message for young readers, but Geek Girl isn't preachy - it's still an adventure, an escape, with themes that are explored, but not overwhelming. It's UKYA storytelling at its best.

This is why I think this series is so important. It's easy to fall under the illusion that people in the eye of the media, such as models, are almost not human in the way that they escape the horrible aspects of everyday life. It's easy to get caught up in the dream of having a perfect life like theirs. Nothing is ever perfect, because perfection is always tainted by the darkest of colours. The Geek Girl series shows you that even the people who seem to have an immaculate life might be going through more hardships than you could guess, regardless of whether they are being constantly photographed or not. Harriet serves as a reminder that the best thing you can have is the love given by others and yourself. :) 

I hope you enjoyed this review! Me and Arianne really enjoyed writing it together, so hopefully we'll do it again sometimes!

Bye! xx

Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson

Hello Everyone!

Thank you to the lovely people at Hot Key Books for sending this to me for review! As always, this does not affect my opinions. Unfortunately, I did expect a bit more from this book..

18177305
Title: Suite Scarlett
Author: Maureen Johnson
Series: Scarlett #1
Source: Publisher
Publisher: Hot Key Books
Published: November 7th 2013
No. of Pages: 368

If living in a famous art deco hotel minutes away from Central Park sounds like your idea of a pretty sweet deal - you should talk to Scarlett Martin. Having a hotel for a home really isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when you've got no guests, no money and no prospects for any fun thanks to your parents putting you to work all summer. Luckily for Scarlett, the Hopewell is about to be shaken to its foundations with the arrival of Mrs Amberson, a glamorous travelling socialite who's planning on putting down some roots for a while - and hiring Scarlett as her assistant. With a new job, new friends, and (maybe) a new boyfriend on the horizon, Scarlett's summer is beginning to look a lot more interesting... (-Goodreads)
3 stars: Page tweets once, he didn't have strong
feelings for this book. It was just ok.

Top Ten Favourite Movies and TV Shows

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and The Bookish


Top Ten Favourite Movies and TV Shows

Films



1. Pitch Perfect
This film is HILARIOUS. I love it so much, and I never get tired of watching it. I love the songs and I can probably sing along if I wanted to, and I also love all the characters. They are so funny, especially Fat Amy. She is THE BEST. (btw, I've decided not to include book-to-movie adaptations, otherwise we all know what this post would consist of..)


2. Now You See Me
I have only watched this one once, because I don't have it on dvd, but I love it. The magic tricks are perfection, and you get some good plot twists out of it. It is a great illusion. ;)



3. Disney Films
Oh, how I love Disney. LOVE IT. I adore the magic and the fairytales, no matter how unrealistic people say they are. My favourites have to consist of Tangled, Frozen and Mulan. The latter has been a favourite since I was little, and I used to love dressing up as her, as well as eating with chopsticks. I was never one to choose the most traditional princesses, though I did have a Belle dress too. 



4. The Impossible
You will cry at this film. You will. This is a film based on a true story, and it literally is so heart-wrenching. It centres on a family separated by a Tsunami, and while it is agony watching them try to find each other, the end is the most rewarding thing ever. It is so emotional, but I loved it because of that. 



5. Grown Ups
Yes, I'll admit this is slightly ridiculous, but I also have to admit that it makes me laugh a lot. i can not think of a single character that didn't make me laugh, and for that this film gets lots of brownie points. This one is definitely better than the sequel, though.

TV Shows



6. Agents of SHIELD
I am certain that I have explained my love for this show enough times.. I shall not bore you anymore, but if you want to know more, read this post.




7. Once Upon A Time
Me and my sister both watch this and love it. We're on Season 2, Episode 6 but we haven't had much time to watch it, recently. Still, I love all the twists on the fairytales and some of my favourite characters have to Red and Snow White. I would definitely recommend this.



8. The Good Wife
This is a show I watch with my parents. We haven't watched it since the beginning but I really enjoy it and there is so. much. drama. Season 5 has just ended, but if you do decided to watch this expect a few plot twists! You will be surprised!




10. The Middle
This show follows a middle class family, and everything they do is so funny. The parent have such a funny attitude and the brothers and sisters do hilarious things. For some reason, it hasn't been on for a while, which sucks..

  After writing this I am in desperate need of another adjective other than funny or hilarious. MY POOR BRAIN. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed it!

Bye! xx

Literature's Language: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Hello Everyone!

As you'll probably already know if you've read this blog for a while, I am Portuguese. This means I am bilingual and speak two languages fluently. I wanted some way to share my language with you on my blog, so I thought of this. 'This' is basically me taking a book and showing you the cover and title in a different language. Then, I re-translate the title so that you can see the literal translation of the title in a different language. If this is confusing, you'll see in a bit what I mean... For Portuguese, I can translate it correctly, but for all the other languages I have to use google translate so please correct me if I'm wrong- I don't mean to offend anyone if I do! Hopefully this will be interesting for you, but make sure to tell me what you think and if you want to see more! Todays choice is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green- ENJOY!
It's quite cool, isn't it? Kind of different, but you get the same feeling.

This is very different, right? It still has the theme of stars, which I expect will happen regardless of the language, but it's definitely different to the original title. Interestingly, like the Portuguese title, I feel like you still get the same sort of feeling.

Okay, I just gave up on google translate. Luckily, I know some French from school meaning I was able to tell the translation I was being given wasn't right. Finally, I found a site that was giving me what I think is the correct translation.. *shakes head at google* Anyway, I seem to be right about the Stars theme!

My German skills are literally non-existent. Seriously. I was terrible in German lessons. So, off I went to use Google Translate along with the other website I found. The above translation is what google gave me and I used it because it seemed to make the most sense, even though they were pretty much the same- tell me if it's wrong! I really enjoy this title. I feel like it fits Gus and Hazel's sense of humour, but it doesn't fit my theory about the stars theme! Still- it's cool! :)

I hope you enjoyed this! I think things will start to get pretty funny as I start venturing into less common languages.. we'll see how that goes.. I might need to employ some elves!

Bye! xx

Discussion with an Eight Year Old: Book Spoilers


Discussion with an Eight Old is basically a discussion feature where I talk to my eight year old sister, Inês, about a certain topic. I hope you enjoy it!

Topic: Book Spoilers

Rita: I did a survey lately, and I asked what people wanted to see more of. A popular answer was that you wanted more Discussions, in particular with my sister, so here we are today to grant your wishes! Also, if you love Inês that much, look out for #sistakesover where I'm letting her occasionally take over my twitter. It's proved... interesting... so far.. Anyway, lets start the discussion!! Inês, is there a certain event you'd like to confess to when I received my copy of City of Heavenly Fire back in June..?

Inês: I'm nine !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rita: Okay, but for the purpose of this blog you're staying 8 forever.. Anyway, CONFESS.

Inês: Squishy.

Rita: NO. NOT SQUISHY. ANSWER THE QUESTION.

Inês: NEVER.

Rita: ANSWER.

Inês: I tried to read some lines ... I'VE ANSWERED.

Rita: More specifically, YOU CHASED ME ROUND THE HOUSE TRYING TO READ LINES FROM THE END. I HAD TO HIDE. I WAS TRAUMATISED.

Inês: Ines is not here. Please leave a message after the beep. *beep*

Rita: REALLY!? 

Inês: If you want to talk to Inês, press 1.

Rita: My sister has become an answering machine. Yay. *presses one*

Inês: Okay, I'm back. Oh yeah... I did chase you, didn't I? Sorry. *laughs*

Rita: Hmph... Apology accepted. I am such a kind sister, right?

Inês: NEVER.

Rita: You love me, really. Anyway, have you ever been spoiled by someone?

Inês: I don't know..

Rita: I assume that since you're not on the internet as much, it's much harder to get spoiled! Still, I know that sometimes you ask me to tell you what happens a book. Why? Wouldn't you rather wait to read them when you're older?

Inês: Because I'm curious. It's really mysterious too and I want to know what happens.

Rita: I know how you feel. Sometimes I really want to know what happens and I don't want to wait to have to get my hands on the book.. It can be really hard to resist spoilers!! 

Rita: Since you've never been spoiled before, how do you think you would feel if someone told you something important about a book that you hadn't read?

Inês: I'd still read the book, but I'd be kind of annoyed.

Rita: Kind of? Why's that? It's just that when it happens to me, I get REALLY annoyed. For example, I still haven't read the next two books in The Maze Runner series, and then someone spoiled it (A random person..) on twitter, and it made me really annoyed. My instant reaction is: SPOILER. MY EYES ARE BURNING.

Inês: Well, seeing a spoiler does make a difference, but I would try to forget it so I wouldn't be that annoyed. Rita gets very annoyed and runs around crazily. If she gets an offer to meet an author, she screams in the car. I've seen it happen.

Rita: Yep, that's me and my fangirl tendencies. That'll have to be a discussion for another time, though.. I might just let Inês write a post on how crazy she thinks I am. On a scale of 1 to Voldemort, how insane am I?

Inês: Ten. 

Rita: Ten isn't on the scale. Ten is the equivalent of Voldemort.

Inês: Oh sorry, then 5.

Rita: This is actually very promising- my own sister believes I am less crazy than Voldemort. Wow, we have gone off track.. Inês, would you like to sum up this discussion in 5 words?

Inês: Squishy. Books. Five. You-Know-Who. Crazy.

Rita: Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself.

Inês: Fine. VOLDEMORT. You made Squishy afraid. And Scruffy.

Rita: *hugs*

Have you been spoiled before? How did it make you feel? Tell me in the comments, and I may even get Ines to reply to you!
 Bye!! xx

The Fault in Our Stars Film Review with Georgia from The Books Bandit

Hello Everyone!

So I went to see the film version of one of my favourite books ever around 2 weeks ago. After that tearful experience, Me and Georgia from The Books Bandit decided to do a joint review Q&A style. The challenge is, however, that we did this on Twitter meaning we only had 140 characters to express our thoughts! We stuck to it.. kind of..  For the purpose of this Q&A, I'll be in Bold Blue, and Georgia in Grey Italics: ENJOY!

What did you think of the first five minutes?

They were perfect! My eyes were already watering from the If I Stay trailer, and then it was 5 mins of sheer perfection and anticipation!

What was your first impression of Hazel?

Hah, hah! Um, I love the character but I think that a different actress should've played her.

What did you think on the overall film? :)


I loved every single aspect of it. I could not have asked for a better adaptation. It was perfect from the characters to the script!!


So which casting choices pleased you?


The guy who played Isaac and Ansel-OMG he was like the Augustus I dreamed of! Mr and Ms Lancaster were also brilliant!

AGREED! I FELL IN LOVE WITH GUS ALL OVER AGAIN!


*Dies.*

Did you think the film was exactly like the book?


I think it was one of the most faithful adaptations I've seen. Granted, I haven't read the book in a while but it seemed great!!


Hah, hah same!

What was your favourite scene??


Ummmmmmmmmmm, the Peter Van Houton part the part when Hazel gets back to the airport when Mr Lancaster had the sign saying "My beautiful family. (Augustus) And the first support group.



I love those bits too! My favourite part, though, was the egging scene! I LOVE that bit! It's a brief infinity of happiness before I dissolved into a puddle of tears!

Did you find any mistakes in the film?

None, I don't think!

Yay! :3

I always love it when films are true to the book!!

When did you start crying in the film?

From the first five minutes! :) What were your thoughts on Amsterdam?

Ahaha, SAME! Amsterdam was exactly what I pictured, and it hit me right in the feels! I really hope to go one day!

YAY! I want to go there next year!

Ooh! I hope you do!! I intend to go to a lot of bookish locations one day!!

What was your favourite line that they included from the book??

Maybe our okay will be our always.

*starts sobbing*

What about yours?

Hmm.. Let me think..? I love all the tear inducing lines, I hate the rollercoaster line because JOHN GREEN LIED TO ME WITH THAT LINE.

Yes he did! *Dies* *Gives tissues*

SO.MUCH.EVIL



My favourite line, though? Probably 'It's a Metaphor.'



What scene did you cry at the most??


The part when Gus was at the gas station and also when the funeral begun.

I don't think I can name something the saddest part, but the ugly-crying started with the flashbacks..


Do you think there should be a sequel?

NOOOO. NO SEQUEL. NO SEQUEL. THEY BETTER NOT GO RUIN MY LITTLE BOOK WITH THEIR SMALL MINDS THAT ARE TRYING TO MAKE MONEY.


#BestRantEver

*bows* thank you



What's your rant on the idea of a sequel?


Well, I've always thought that in the future Hazel hooks up with Isaac and then they get married. But as Isaac said in the movie, I can never see a world without Augustus Waters. But if John ever writes another book, I might as well go to hell as I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE IN THE FEELS!

What was your view towards the end?


My view... Well, through the waterfall rushing down my face I did manage to catch the ending and a chorus of sniffles all around me..



Being serious, my view throughout the whole thing was: I am falling in love with Augustus Waters all over again ;)



Agreed.





What did you think of the soundtrack?? I personally loved it!

I may have downloaded nearly all the songs. Boom Clap was the best! *Starts singing*

YESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYES! I could listen to Boom Clap on repeat for hours and not get bored!!

What was the best bit of the movie?

Umm.. AM I ALLOWED TO SAY EVERY BIT??

Yes!

How did you feel after the movie?

Well, I was a wreck. Yep, I was a sobbing mess who had just relived the book all over again. I like to think of it as a beautiful pain. ;)

Pain demands to be felt.

WAY TO HIT ME IN THE FEEELS

Sorry!!!

I may or may not have read that in his voice.

Just like I literally sat there mouthing the lines of the film..

*Sobs.* Same!

After you had wallowed in your feels for a few days, did you feel like you would watch it again?

Yes! I felt like that the moment the credits began!! :) The feels are still with me!!!

*hugs you* Aww!! I was the same!!

There you have it! I hope you enjoyed that little conversation, and that you go see the film soon- make sure to read the book first though, I PROMISE it's worth it! ;)

Bye! xx
