New Mockingjay Teaser Trailer!!!

As soon as I have seen the teaser I decided to share this very exciting moment with everyone! Until now we have got to Capitol announcements, and now a very very exciting teaser trailer.

I will not analyse every single scene because I will let you draw conclusions for yourself. However, I must say that the whistled song at the end never ceases to give me goose flesh.

I have nothing to say about this teaser. It pretty much shows what the book said. It is very well constructed and it is very convincing from a first look.

Despite the fact that I love how the teaser looks, I still cannot understand how they will replace the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, seeing that his character is very important in the third installment. Maybe they think that they can kill his character in the second part, which would be very convenient for them, but they better not do that because I will not be held responsible for my actions. Hehe.

Now please enjoy the new teaser trailer and the little videos from the Capitol and let me know what you thought of them.

 

 

So? What do you think? This movie has a great potential! I bet it will be a blockbuster!!

Until next time, may the odds be ever in your favor,

Lexi xoxoxoxo!

Book Review: “City of Ashes”

Hey dear reader,

Today I have the review for the second book in the mortal instruments series- City of Ashes.

Given the fact that this book was not adapted into a movie yet, I didn’t have the occasion to spoil the book by seeing the movie.

Here is the summary:

Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who’s becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn’t ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary’s only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

City of Ashes is one hundred times better than the first book in the series. It had a faster pace and it was more action packed.

Also, in this second installment, you will get even more attached to the characters. Without spoiling the story I can only say that even the characters bond more as well as you will get more gripped with their story.

The new characters that are introduced in the second book, are very well described and have a strong background and this is very important because they have a huge impact on the course of the story. Obviously, we have villains and heroes, both which we hate and love.

The book is a lot more action packed that the first one and also its story line is more compelling. Another thing to appreciate about City of Ahes is the way the story is told. We are given a very well described vision of this world so this way we don’t need a lot of help to imagine the things Miss Claire has created.

After reading this second book, I couldn’t help but compare all the pros and cons with those from the first installment. So I concluded that City of Ashes is ten times better than City of Bones. Obviously, I cannot give this book less than 5 stars because it would be a crime. I cannot wait to buy the next book!

I highly suggest this to everyone who liked City of Bones, I am sure you will like this a lot more!

Until next time, take care,
Lexi. Xoxo

P.S. I really hope that they won’t butcher this book to movie adaptation as much as they did with the first one.

The Imitation Game- New Trailer

Dearest reader,

Here’s the new trailer for ‘The Imitation Game’, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, and Mark Strong. A new movie set during World War II.

Now, I don’t only find the premise amazing, but I also think that this is a killer cast!!!

Sadly I have yet to find someone who will go with me to the cinema to see this potential masterpiece. Apparently, my friends do not think movies based on history and wars are ‘cool’, but I’ll be positive and hope that I will find someone until November.

Now, please enjoy this trailer of a film that seems to have huge potential.

Hope you liked it,

Until next time, many kisses,

Lexi xoxo.

P.S. It seems that we will have many great movies at the end of this year.

Book review: “The Selection” -NO SPOILERS!

Oh My GOD! THIS, THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!

I haven’t read a book so fast in my life!!! I think I have read The Selection by Kiera Cass  in a total of 4 hours. I swear, I am not exaggerating when I say that I love this book more than I can think of!!! I knew I’d like it, but it didn’t cross my mind that I would love it so much!!!

This kind of book is best to read it at the perfect moment when you are in the right set of mind. I read The Selection when I was pretty happy and was in the mood for a very fluffy story.

Again, I am too lazy to write a real review and add a summary of the plot, but I am not that lazy to not write my opinion of it. Also, I went to the great trouble of adding a summary of the plot that I got from Goodreads I believe. 

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself–and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

 

I am not that sure that I know where to begin really. The first two pages are always hard to read when you are in a slump but I think that they actually define the entire book. What I mean is, if you don’t like a book from the beginning it is very possible that you’ll never finish it…at least that’s the way it woks for me.

I thought that the plot was very well narrated and the story line didn’t let me put the book down. The characters were as well, tremendously well described; and to my amazement and pleasure the main character America Singer has a major character development without which the story wouldn’t be as great as it is.

I honestly think that this book doesn’t get enough recognition for what it is and what great story it holds.The combination of a dystopian world and the emotions it gives, it is at times overwhelming but in the end it will definitely make you feel that you want to read more.

I would recommend this book to anyone that loves a very well written fluff from time to time. Obviously I can’t seem to preach this book enough and I cannot wait to do the same with the next two that I plan on reading ASAP. *giggles* I also think I might reread it as soon as I can; yes, I enjoyed it that much!

Once again, I am sorry if you did not like my review, but with time I hope they get better. Also, I really reaaaaalllyyyy enjoyed this book.

AND once again, I have to thank Carol for making it possible for me to read a book that made me so so happy! Thank you SO much!!

So excited and thankful! ❤


Until next time, stay safe,

Lexi! xxxxxxxxxx!!!

P.S. I know there is a bunch of controversy over this book, but I really do not see the point of all this hate that is directed over it…I mean, if you don’t like it, that is perfectly fine, but there are a lot of people that do like a soft “silly” story once in a while.

This book honestly made my 6 year-old heart sing of joy whilst I read the story of a Prince and Princess to be. There are people in this world that like different kinds of genres and characters and  so on, but you don’t have to call them stupid for what they enjoy to read!

It really was one of the best books I have ever read because it made me feel happy and at peace rather than anxious at all times. Sometimes our souls need that too. So don’t kill me for speaking my mind, but you should revise what you say to a person before you do because you may hurt them a lot, especially if they are the writers. I bet you wouldn’t like that either!

A teenager experience!

Hello there, long time no post… sorry about that :)!

I did not plan to post this but it just occurred to me that I should share this with everybody!

MV5BMjIxMjgxNTk0MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjIyOTg2MDE@._V1_SX640_SY720_Earlier this week, as a dedicated film lover, I went to the cinema with a friend to go watch “The Wolf of Wall Street“.  We were both so excited to see it, I even booked seat tickets so we would stay at a convenient spot and all of that…

When I got to the box office, and got my money out so I could pay, the girl asks how old I am, and without thinking I told her and she said that I couldn’t go in… I was speechless. It never happened to me before, and I will make sure it never will again…

Very angry, and about to kill someone, my friend and I decided to go to the other cinema we have in our town, which is at a 10 minute distance from the one we’ve just been into. When we get there, again, a girl asks us how old we are and we say the right age and she says that she got a call from the first girl who “was onto us” and told her that we might be coming… Anyway, I asked her if I could call a parent so she can hear that I  have approval from a “grown-up” that I can see this movie, and she told me that it didn’t matter,and we still couldn’t go in. On the front desk there was a pice of paper that said “Minors aren’t allowed to see The Wolf of Wall Street even if accompanied by an adult.” I was even more angry than before and in a surprisingly calm matter I asked what is in this Oscar nominated movie that I haven’t seen before?  And with a shrug of a shoulder she very rudely dismissed us.

I understand both of them because they were only doing their jobs, but now that I think of it I was and still am angry at the system… I mean, if today I am not an official adult and I want to see a movie, I am not allowed to because it will probably “scar” me for life and if tomorrow is my birthday and I am finally of age it means that I won’t be at all affected by the message and the images in that movie. Hmm…what a difference a day makes..

Of course, my birthday wasn’t the next day, I was only referring to the system… And I am sure that this happens all around the world and these rules aren’t  just in my country and town, but still, can’t a parent or a tutor decide if I will or not be traumatised after I see the movie and just let me see it?

I hope some of you agree. This is just my honest opinion! Of course I don’t blame the women at the box offices [even though they annoyed the crap out of me and had an attitude that they could work on…a lot..], they were only doing their jobs, but the rules are completely messed up and should be revised as soon as possible!

Until next time,

Lexi xxxxxxxxx 🙂

P.S. I am currently watching The Wolf of Wall Street online. *Laughs evilly*
