A Life Lesson Learned The Hard Way

Life Lesson: Even if the assigned reading is only 200 pages long, don't wait two days before the deadline to read Lord of The Flies. I promise you that it will be boring, therefore you will read it slowly. In the end you will be awake at 1:39 am, finishing the last, disappointing chapters, barely comprehending a word.

Also, if anyone tells you that the book ends in cannibalism, don't get your hopes up. They're liars.

Mini-Blog: Boys R Us by Lisi Harrison

Very Good. Not my favorite, but it was better than most of the books in the series. The drama wasn't as petty and childish as usual, but still petty and childish.

Out of All The Clique Books: 9 Stars.

Out of All The Books Ever (that I've read): 7.6 Stars.

Sorry, I'm just terribly sleepy.

Your Tired Blogger,

P.S. Don't question my logic! Of COURSE I can post this after falling asleep! I'm just awesome like that!

My Absence And A Movie Review


Have I really been away for so long? I haven't added a post in about three weeks! That's something. It's felt like forever!

Okay, now onto explaining my web silence. Well, it's summer and I've been hanging with friends, and I was on a family vacation, so yeah. And I have nothing to say on here at the moment, and I didn't feel like wasting our time.

But now I have something to say!

It's a mini-movie review of Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince!

I saw it on the 15th for my birthday party, though my b-day was earlier this month, and I thought it was great. (Note that it's "great." and not "great!")

The acting was better than usual, and though they didn't keep to the book much, it was mostly better for it. I was very disappointed when [SPOILER AHEAD] in the end there was no huge fight scene, which is sad, because I was really looking forward to it [SPOILER OVER].

The pacing was a bit messed up in the second half. There wasn't enough Dumbledore. There's more Harry-Ginny interaction, which I liked, though it was kind of weird.

This will only make sense to you if you've read all seven books: While in the Room of Requirement, they messed up by never showing the Diadem of Rawena Ravenclaw.

Tom Felton, Michael Gambon, Helena Bonham Carter, and Alan Rickman were all GREAT!!!!! (Note the exclamation point.)

[Small SPOILER AHEAD] The scene in the cave was perfect. [Small SPOILER OVER]

Um... That's all I have to say for now, so...

Your Movie Reviewer Blogger Chick,

P.S. Next post will involve book reviews.
