Year: 2010 (March)
Director: Julie Anne Robinson
Writers: Nicholas Sparks (Screenplay and Novel) and Jeff Van Wie (Screenplay)
Actors: Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear, Bobby Coleman, Liam Hemsworth, and Kelly Preston.
My Rating: 4/5
My Thoughts: I went to see this movie yesterday with my sister and her friend. I have (had) been wanting to see it since they started playing the previews on t.v. I am not against Miley Cyrus, i know some people LOVE or HATE her. I am neither, i love some things she does and i don't care for others. To start i really liked this movie and it really got me more wanting to read the book. I love the story line from Sparks. I thought it was a good movie and i thought the acting was really good. The characters were great and i must say the scenery was really Beautiful!!!!
Miley Cyrus totally surprised me with this film and i really liked her in it - it's much different then her Disney show and i thought her character portrayal completely different (except for the music part) from her real image. The story made me shed tears, i thought it was sad but not too too sad. Some things just make me sad. Well i won't say more on that because i do not want to spoil. But we all must know that Nicholas Spark's movies have never not once been not sad. That is i think a fact. They are not all bawl your eye's out sad but you must feel sad at least once during the movie to be watching a Spark's movie.
Well thank you for listening me go on - and on,
Author: Lisa Mcmann
YA Science Fiction
Book Following: Gone (book 3)
Basic Rating: 3/5 and a half (meaning i really liked it!)
Cover: Cover is so cool!
My Copy: Simon Pulse
My Recommendation: For fans of Lisa McMann and for people looking for a cool new series to get into. I recommend this book to older Teens.
This sequel to Wake was really good. I must say that i really liked it. The books plot and story was just great - the story line was addicting. The characters old and new were once again great and i really like Janie and Cabel still. (Love em!) The cover i thought is very cool - i totally get it now. I didn't before, i just thought it was cool and now i am beating myself over it, how could i not understand it! The book was addictive but not exactly as drama pact as the plot description on the back of the book - they never really are. I didn't like some parts in this book as i found somethings unnecessary. Some parts unnecessary. I didn't like all the swearing. It wasn't crazy bad, but it was to much for me. I don't like when there is swearing in books - sort of ruins it a little for me and i know for some other people too. But again i liked how it was written - the style was unique and impressive. I thought the whole realization of our lead character - Janie's - future was dim and Grim. Not exactly happy with it, but i hope it doesn't end bitterly in the 3rd book. During the end of this book it was getting more depressing for her, though it did turn around a little not completely turning happy it did though end on a happier note - i won't say any more about that. I am happy with this book and i am excited for the 3rd book - Gone.
Plot: Some Nightmares Never End.
For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. They're just trying to carve out a little (secret) time together, but no such luck. Disturbing things are happening at Fieldrige High, yet no body's talking. When Janie taps into a classmate's violent nightmares, the case finally breaks open - but nothing goes as planned. Not even close. Janie's in way over her head, and Cabe's shocking behavior has grave consequences for them both. Worse yet, Janie learns the truth about herself and her ability - and it's bleak. Seriously, brutally bleak. Not only is her fate as a dream catcher sealed, but what's to come is way darker than she'd even feared. . . . .
I have been really wanting to read a Nicholas Sparks book and for me i am not exactly just dying to read some of his other books because they are more about adults and older adults (which is cool and i love to do it but). . . i wanted to read something more around my age. So i really wanted to Read The Last Song for ever now. And i finally bought the book yesterday!! I also really want to read "A Walk to Remember" that he also wrote. (I loved the movie)
Title: The Last Song
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Price i payed: $11.95
Seventeen-year-old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller's life was turned upside down when her parent's divorced and her father moved to Wrighsville Beach, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains alienated from her parents, particularly her father. . . until her mother decides it would be in every one's best interest if she and her brother spent the summer with him. Resentful and rebellious, Ronnie rejects her father's attempts to reach out to her and threatens to return to New York before the summer's end. But soon Ronnie meets Will, the last person she thought she'd ever be attracted to, and finds herself falling for him, opening herself up to the greatest happiness - and pain - that she has ever known.
