Book vs Movie: Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring

Yesterday I finally finished reading J. R. R. Tolkien’s first installment of The Lord of the Rings. Once I was done I immediately went on to re-watch Peter Jackson’s epic adaptation of a book considered impossible to be turned into a movie. Here’s what I thought:

 

The Plot:

Dark forces are rising again in Middle Earth. Everybody is in danger as Sauron is searching for his one ring that allows him to rule over all the free peoples.
The fate of them all know depends on a little Hobbit who was entrusted to destroy the ring. Along with eight companies he sets out for Mount Doom.

Game of Thrones Season 5 is here! (A recap on the last 4 seasons)

The new season of Game of Thrones finally started! I can’t tell how excited I am. I recently finished the books and wonder how the adapted it for TV. So far they did a great job transferring the books into a TV show.

 

Now that we are facing the new season I want to look back a bit. It took me some time to discover this show. To be exact, three seasons were awaiting me when I decided to give it a shot. However, from the first episode I watched, I was hooked.
You wouldn’t believe how richly layered a TV who can be. The books are incredible and after I read them, I’m even more impressed by the show. There are so many things, characters, stories, details – reading it you’d think it’s impossible to make a TV show out of it.
A big praise goes out to the people who did the casting. No way could there be a more perfect choice of actors. So far there was not one person I would consider unfitting for the role. Continue reading

DIY: Crochet Animals

Hey there folks! It’s been a while since my last DIY post. But today I bring a bunch of lovely little animals. Recently I was doing some crocheting, and by now I’ve got half a zoo

When I did the little devil, everybody was coming up to get an animal. So half of what I did ended as gifts. One of the bunnies was for my mum, one for my grandma and one for my godmother. The creeper was for my boyfriend (by now the devil is also sitting on his couch).
Although it was a whole lot of work, I’m happy that I put so much effort in it. So far everybody loved my gifts and that’s what counts for me!

(If you want to recreate any of the little fellas, look for the links below!)
