Hey Bookworms! It’s me again! I’m sorry I don’t have a banner for my Life Update posts, but I will eventually! Hopefully… Any who this post will be about my gush for Fire Emblem Fates
which I will be picking up the retail versions on Friday! Eeep! I will be playing Hoshido first and then Nohr! I have been a FE fan since the game Sacred Stones, so to have a new game after Awakening in which I fell in love with the Prince Chrom! He is my game husband and it is just as bad as having a book boyfriend, so I’m not ashamed!
The thing about both Awakening and Fates is both games are more immersive for the players allowing you to play and design your own character. It adds to the part about the games I love the most! The story line and the roller coaster of feels as you get more attached to characters the ones you have and the ones you gain. There is also a marriage aspect that builds character on a whole new level. So if you are a reader with a 3DS I recommend starting with these games. They have such good story line and allows you to think for and with the characters which you can’t do enough in books lately. RPG’s have always been my game of choice and the strategy part of it tests my brain as well. If I do persuade you to play the game or if you already plan to do feel free to DM on twitter for your friend code!
Other Life Updates:
I graduated University in December and I got an email saying my diploma was being mailed today! I am so relieved and I was beginning to think I filled out something wrong! I mean it’s been 2 months… Besides that I’ve started the job hunting process through the Bureau of Vocational Rehab. Sadly we don’t live in a perfect world and jobs do discriminate. This job helps find jobs and get accommedations at said jobs for people with any kind of disability whether it’s mental (depression), learning (Developmental, ADD, Dyslexia) or Physical like me. It’s great to have this tool because I want to do everything through the proper channels because I am on SSI and don’t want to ruin it if I need it later in life. Now this process can take up to 60 days after the initial applying appointment to see if you qualify which I do and did last week. My counselor is hopeful because of how prepared I was, so I’m hoping that this all goes quickly. If I didn’t stay positive my depression would get the best of me in this dragging time.
So I needed to do something to fill my time in the meantime. I’m volunteering at an Organization called All the Same: Wild and Time Sanctuary! I get to play with and love on kitties (and the menial tasks of cleaning litter boxes and feeding them) as they wait to get adopted. Like the lovely Morticia:
The thing I love most about this organization is that they rescue from pound and things like that. It is fun and gets me out of the house on Thursdays and Fridays. It helps me be social and gives me some physical activity that I have been missing since I finished School. It gives me a kitty fix until I get my own place and adopt my own.
Speaking of which I am also dealing with an unwanted move, so I may be a bit unavailable in March, but I don’t know when yet, so I will let you all know sooner. I am trying to focus more on the positive, which is why I can’t wait to get a job. Although I don’t know what I want as a day job, but since I don’t plan to stay in my state because there’s not much for me to pursue in my desired career choices. So any job I have in these next 2 years will be experience and hopefully lead to new friendships!
Well bookworms that’s all that up in my life right now? How about yours? Have you played Fire Emblem? Which were your favorites? How bout favorite characters? Did I convince you to play? Do you have any other advice for not going stir crazy? Feel free to comment down below and let me know! Happy Reading and Gaming!
Hey bookworms! I know this is a little different, but this is going to be the first post in a little theme on my blog. Most of these posts will be on my views of book to movie adaptions I have read and seen, but this first one is a little different because I wish this movie was a book! On Saturday I finally went to see The Age of Adaline!!! So this will be half fangirling/ half review because I’m not really sure of how to review a movie. Let’s get this post started.
Movie Title: The Age of Adaline
Film Company: Lionsgate
Release Date: April 24, 2015
Genre: Romance, Drama
Director: Lee Toland Krieger
Starring: Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman, Kathy Baker, Harrison Ford, Ellen Burstyn, Amanda Crew, and Kathy Baker
My Review/ Fangirling
So I will try to split this up in three parts: My Excitement, My Experience, and My Feelings afterwards which will hold my rating. Hopefully this way this post will make sense.
I’ve been stalking this movie since I first heard about it last summer. Oh and I also ADORE Blake Lively! I will see anything she is in! Even if it was a silent film! She is just stunning!!
The male love interest was yummy too. I have a thing for guys with long curly hair and blue/green eyes!… I mean look at him! Just mmm…
I blame Gerard Butler for starting that obsession but that’s a bit off topic. The first time I stumbled upon it I was mesmerized by the premise. I love the idea of another life, and although this movie isn’t about reincarnation it is pretty close. I fell in love with seeing each outfit she wore in the preview and the way her life changed. It was about an unusual life that was more than a mundane. It had the draw I needed much like the books I love right now. I received tickets to see it at an early screening, but everyone I knew was out of town. The weekend after my sister had to get a cast. Then the weekend of release I was low on Funds and we needed to go to the luxury theater, so she could put her foot up on the reclining seats. The theater was sold out on all shows! So when I had the money I was excited to go May 2nd and I was giddy!
Comfy seats, my pizza, popcorn, and my soda and a comfy recliner seat I was so ready. The fact that the bits were narrated was so appealing to me especially because I have been on an audiobook kick. Blake Lively’s voice had a slight accent that just hinted her lives. The costuming and the settings were so amazing it made you truly believe in all of this! The themes in this movie are amazing and the emotions were strong and inspired the emotions for my own writing it made. The love scenes didn’t lack anything. They felt genuine and for me that is very important! I really do over analyze love scenes when they don’t seem real I growl at the TV. And Blake Lively’s laugh is one of my favorites so her emotions overall were very believable. I just loved the pacing too it took time where it needed and sped too.
Honestly this movie was a 5/5 stars for me! It was amazing story telling, and I already want to see it again! If you loved the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button I think you will enjoy this movie. I think this is a story that will appeal to readers because to me it was what it would be like if you could project the story out of the book. This is an original film and what I mean by original is it was not based off a book! It makes me a bit sad because I would love to read it as one. This movie definitely made it to my onto my favorites list and you can bet I will be buying the DVD! I think this will be one of my comfort movies. So if you want to take a step back in time check this movie out or if you simply want to feel some feels!
Well that’s it bookworms please tell me if you liked the style of this review. It’s the first time I reviewed a movie, so any feedback will help! I plan on doing another one of these soon I just have to pick an adaption! If you would want me to do non adapted movies let me know? Have you seen this movie? Do you agree or disagree with my thoughts? Do you plan on seeing this movie? Feel free to comment down below, and for those of you who haven’t seen the trailer. I’ll include it for you. Have a good week bookworms and happy reading!
P.S. I recently bought some items to treat myself pre-finals. Would you guys be interest in a haul? It isn’t bookish stuff, but it is cute and fun stuff. Let me know in the comments please!
