Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
Let’s talk about some terrible rulers to be found in literature!

#1 Joeffrey in ASOIAF

Was there ever a worse ruler than this one? Was there ever a literary character I hated more? No and no.

#2 Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Dolores is one of the best literary villains in history. It’s really interesting how she is written and no matter how much JK Rowling has been annoying me in recent years, that was a good book. Dolores managed to pretty much ruin Hogwarts, so she definitely belongs on this list.

Top 3 Young Adult Book Series!

Hello Hello!
As I finally had some time to read I decided to catch up with the most famous YA book (that for some reason I never checked out). You can believe me, I stumbled upon some pretty amazing books. Want to know which one I liked best?

 

#3 The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins:
As always I was a bit late with reading those. The first movie was already in cinemas when I got hold of the books. But once I held them in my hands, I couldn’t stop. It took me about four days to finish the entire series. So you can tell, the story of how Katniss Everdeen becomes the face of revolution is more than thrilling. These books are impossible to put down!

 

#2 Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan:
I have to admit I’m only half-way through this series but I’m completely in love. Percy Jackson discovers he is a half-blood, meaning that he is the son of the Greek God Poseidon and now has to deal with some pretty tough quests. You know the best about it? The Greek mythology! It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I’m fascinated by that. Riordan picks up many of the famous stories and incorporates them perfectly by making them modern. Although I read a bunch of books on Greek mythology Riordan managed to surprise me and I even learned about some new stuff! Continue reading

Movie Mania: Mockingjay Part 2

It’s finally here. The long awaited final part in the Hunger Games series. After Mockingjay 1 ended with an unbearable cliffhanger (basically somewhere in the middle of the third book the series the movies are based on) we had to wait for an entire year to see how the against the capitol and President Snow would end.

The Plot:
The revolution has reached the critical stage. It’s win big or loose even bigger. The rebels especially Katniss Everdeen, the face of the revolution, prepare for the final strike against the capitol and President Snow. Will they win?

Top 3 Book Adaptations

It’s always hard to turn a great book into a movie that is just as good. I’ve seen many amazing stories messed up on the screen. But there are a few movies that are almost as magnificent as the novels they are based on!

 

Hunger Games:
I loved the books for their intensity. Suzanne Collins sends shiver down your spin and you will end up as a bundle of nerves. What Collins capture between the page was transferred to the films very well. Especially Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss is stunning. I never thought that it would be possible to portray her that perfectly. Some parts in the books are very monumental and a bit hard to imagine. However, these scenes turned out to be extremely impressive visuals. Both books and movies will get under your skin.

Top 5 Book Series

There’s nothing better than a good book series. Although it always set my teeth on edge, I can’t help but get hooked by a new one. The cliffhangers and waiting for the next book is torture but read on to find out with novels really are worth it!

 

A Song of Ice and Fire:
I have no idea how he does it, but George R. R. Martin managed to create a world so rich, so detailed, so magnificent it could almost be real. His series consists of five books (hopefully many more to come) that are filled with so many plotlines, it takes at least one entire book to get settled on the names. However, the story is extremely thrilling and intriguing and he constantly finds new ways to intertwine the plotlines. To be honest, these are some of the best books I ever read. Can’t wait for the next part! Continue reading
