Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal.
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one.
Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price.
New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbours secret doubts about her son. But why?
Most Book Geeks have a significant TBR pile. They could be stacked up on your bedside table, overflowing from your bookshelves, or just bundled neatly around the floor, either way with SO many amazing books to get through, you would think we do little else except read.
But there comes a time, whether through book burnout, a reading slump, or just because you fancy a change of pace, that you need to take a break and do something different. So, what do Book Geeks do when they aren’t reading?
It is Ireland in the early 1950s and for Eilis Lacey, as for so many young Irish girls, opportunities are scarce. So when her sister arranges for her to emigrate to New York, Eilis knows she must go, leaving behind her family and her home for the first time.
Arriving in a crowded lodging house in Brooklyn, Eilis can only be reminded of what she has sacrificed. She is far from home – and homesick. And just as she takes tentative steps towards friendship, and perhaps something more, Eilis receives news which sends her back to Ireland. There she will be confronted by a terrible dilemma – a devastating choice between two worlds.
A couple of years ago, I took part in something called Blogmas, where I (failed miserably) at posting every day in December. One of those posts was on my favourite Christmas movies, so I’m upcycling some content today as I revamp that old post and bring it to you in all of its new glory!
I haven’t read 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, but I have heard a lot about it through the BookTube and Book Blogging community, which is why when Netflix announced they were making a TV show adaptation – I got excited.
Unfortunately, it did not live up to expectations.
Time for another Giveaway! My last Banned Books Giveaway was so successful, and I had so much participation and interaction from you guys, that I’ve decided to do another one! So many of our favourite movies have originated as great books, so to celebrate that I’m going to give away a book that has a […]
This isn’t the type of thing I usually blog about, but I felt compelled to share the love and remember the late Robin Williams. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his death, and was surprised to learn that he had suffered with depression and addiction. Maybe I had been living under a rock, […]
This post will surely be ridiculously long by the time I’m finished with it… The first actual Teaser Trailer has been released that isn’t a faux propaganda piece from The Capitol. The marketing guys for this movie are smart, very smart. First Teaser Trailer – 28/07/2014 Second Faux Propaganda Trailer – 10/07/14 The second trailer for […]
Oh. My. Word. Shut. The. Front. Door!! Have you seen it yet? Have you? I bring you the official trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey! First of all, I was very pleasantly surprised by just how good Jamie Dornan was. I was expecting him to be good, but that elevator scene?? *Phew* Still not sure […]
Top Ten Movies and TV Shows I’m not just a Book Geek, I’m a pretty well-rounded Geek. I LOVE movies and TV Shows almost as much as I love to read, and this topic really needs to be split in two as I could make Top Ten lists for both movies and TV shows ten […]
*UPDATE* 11/07/2014 A new and (in my opinion) approved trailer has been released for Gone Girl! I’m really looking forward to this adaptation. I loved the book and hated the ending, but still love it overall. Go figure. This trailer is a big improvement on the first one, but I think they’re maybe giving away […]
