Open Book: Bright Side -

Open Book: Painting a smile and if i'm lucky enough a hint of a laugh at the corners of your mouth. I really liked these qoutes i have collected throughout the week. Thought they were a laugh and either true or could be true for some people.

Title: On the Bright side, i'm now the girlfriend of a sex god
Author: Louise Rennison
Page: 86
"Boy's are different from girls. Girls like to be cozy all the time but boys don't. First of all they like to get all close to you like a coiled-up rubber band, but after a while they get fed up with being too coiled and need to stretch away to their full stretchiness. Then, after a bit of on -their-own stretchy, they ping back to be close to you."

"Thinking about the difference between girls and boys. For instance, when girls walk home we put on lippy and makeup. We chat. Sometimes we pretend to be hunchbacks. But that is it. Perfectly normal behavior. When the Foxwood boys come out they hit each other, trip one another up, and stuff leaves or caps down each others trousers."

"Am i really horrible? Perhaps i am one of those people who don't really feel things properly, like Madona."

Angus, Thongs and Full- frontal snogging

Title: Angus, thongs and full-frontal snogging
Author: Louise Rennison
Pages: 234

Basic Rating: 4/5

Characters: 3/5 and a half ( I really liked them!)

Plot: 3/5 and a half

Setting: 3/5

Cover: 3/5

My Copy: Paper Back (Harper Teen Cover art 2006) (The one above)

Following book: "On the bright side, I'm now the girlfriend of a sex god" USA copy

or UK "It's OK, I'm wearing really big knickers"

Worth it? 2/3 or 3/3 ( i would buy hardcover.)

My Recommendation: For people who like a comical genius an for fun light weighty matters. And above all for readers who love YA Comedy.

My Thoughts: This book is such a laugh. It was just real (in more of a comical way) and funny. Their was just girl topic's that real girls think about. It was light with relatable matters. I could relate to somethings and it was so hilarious to see it put into words. Georgia is very amusing and funny. She is a bit selfish and sometimes too vain, but she's a great character. We are all at times selfish and vain so that is relatable. The other characters just fit in perfectly and i like that a lot. It is different than the movie - "Angus thongs and perfect snogging" - but i think it does have to be when you combine two books together. The setting is very ace - i love Eastborne England and i thought that was brilliant. It's a diary and i normally don't go for diary's but i wanted to try this book out and i am really glad i did. It's a great book - lots of snogging, but the great thing about it is that it's clean and great fun. Related a lot to the movie that got me into the book. I can't wait to read the following book.

Plot: Georgia Nicolson's life is far from simple. Her cat, Angus, is the size of a small Labrador. Her three-year-old sister may have peed somewhere in her room. And her best friend, Jas, thinks she looks like an alien just because she accidentally shaved off her eyebrows. Enter the Sex God. This just might turn out to be the most fabbity fab year ever!

"I am going to become a writer for Cosmo - you don't have to make any sense at all. Or maybe i'll be a bloke, they don't have to make any sese either."

"I will concentrate on my positive and not my negative, e.g., I will think less about my nose and more about my quite attractive teeth."


400 and up!

I have Past 400 posts!! I can't believe it!!! Well i guess i can't believe it because i never thought i would pass 100 or even 200 posts. Now i wonder if i can make it up to 500 or even 600. That would be a challenge, but i'll just have to wait and see if i can do it.

400 posts and up!!!

The Time of Angels (5.04)

Premiring on April 24 in the UK is Episode 4 - The Time of Angels.
Writer: Steven Moffat
Starring: Matt Smith and Karen Gillan
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIxOaMMjcoY Trailer <-

In this two-parter, the Doctor and Amy meet River Song, a spaceship crashes and the Doctor, at the request of Father Octavian, hunts the last of the Weeping Angels in the ruins of Alfava Metraxis

Victory of the Daleks (5.03)

This episode came out in the UK on April 17. The Third episode of season 5.
Writer: Mark Gatiss
Starring: Matt Smith (The Doctor) and Karen Gillan (Amy Pond)

The TARDIS materialises in the Cabinet War Rooms during the Second World War, one month after Winston Churchill (Ian McNeice) called for help. Soon they find that trouble has come their way and the doctor must find out who is with him or against him.

The Eleventh Hour Season 5 Episode 1 (5.01)

I give this episode 4.5
I loved it!!! It was brilliant and very cool! I was worried about how Matt Smith would take over the role of the doctor. The End of time was very dramatic and emotional and it was sad to see David Tennant leave, but i don't feel like Matt S is replacing him its just that the show is moving on and living in a whole new way. Its a whole new doctor and new show i think. Not only has the doctor changed, the writers, the companion, the TARDIS, the screw driver, and the doctors taste in clothes and food. This episode was such a laugh and very entertaining, i loved watching it and it got me very much excited for ever single new episodes.
Great job

The Plot:

Born into a broken home and an impoverished life in Jamaica, Hortense (Naomie Harris) longs for a fulfilling life in England; one with a fine house and a doorbell. The door of opportunity swings open, and Hortense is married and on her way to the promised land of post-war Britain. Steadfast dreams are soon tested by hard realities as Hortense and her husband Gilbert (David Oyelowo) face racism and poverty. In the small-minded country, their only saving grace is Queenie (Ruth Wilson, Jane Eyre). But Queenie faces her own disillusionment, married to the kind but dull Bernard (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Last Enemy). Bonded by high hopes and broken dreams, these four lives fuse together in a powerful and hopeful story of love and fulfillment. Small Island is based on the award-winning, bestselling novel by Andrea Levy. (Two episodes; 90 minutes each; TV-MA, S)


Anne Frank

This is a little late but i wanted to have a small review of Anne Frank.
I watched it on a Sunday and i was really surprised by how much i really liked it. The movie i am told is one of the most accurate that has been made. That is pretty cool i must admit. The actors were really good and i loved the way the story was being told. Like a diary but still a movie. I really liked it and i recommend it to movie lovers, History lovers, and lovers of a good drama.
