Em: Guest blogger Tegan

Hi Everyone! I am Tegan from Not your Faery Tale. This week I am doing a guest posting for you because Em is a bit out of sorts. Here is my post.


Goals:
My Goals for this week are pretty simple. I really need to find a job, also I really want to Finish Anaisi Boys by Neil Gaiman and Clockwork angel, but I have been watching Bones and Doctor who, so I haven't been reading much.

Quote:
"Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping. . . Waiting. . . and though unwanted. . . unbidden . . . it will stir. . . open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have?" -Angelus Buffy episode 29
I chose this quote because I think we all have these passions, and no matter how much we give up on those passions those greater ideas in life, it is what guides us to everything we do in life.

Song:
You Found Me by The Fray
I have been playing this song over and over for a month, I love it, I don't really know why because I've never really been into The Fray.

Movies

R.E.D (Retired Extremely Dangerous)



So this movie made me laugh to no end. I was in stitches, which I wasn't really expecting. I thought I would like it, but I didn't think I would like it this much. The plot was good for a summit, shoot-em-up movie, which normally the shoot-em-up movies are not my style, this had the action. It was hilarious. There was this one part of the movie where John Malkovich is running after someone with a bomb/clock on him, and I was crying, it was so funny.

If you are in need of a good story (good shoot-em-up movie its no Tristan and Isolde) and a funny movie with lots of action along with a little bit of romance, you should really go out and see this movie.

This movie is rated PG.

Youth Adult:

Title: Hex Hall
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Publisher: Hyperion
Page Count: 323
Series: Hex Hall
Where to buy: Amazon B&N Boarders Book Depository  Chapters
Hex Hall, I wasn't expecting anything great, and I have to say I was wrong. This book kept me guessing from the start. I found that I could not put the book down, I was laying in bed for hours thinking about the book, trying to get to sleep. There were more then a couple occasions where I put the book down because I was so shocked about what happened.
Sophie is a good main character, yet I found her falling for Archer a little annoying, every bone in her body is screaming "don't go near him, he's a major bully." And yet, she is still drawn to him. That was annoying, Though I like Archer, and I think I might have a little bit of a name crush on him, I don't think that Sophie falling for him was believable, much like the insta-love we see in other books. I am sure if there was more substance to Archer and Sophie I would of liked it better. But Sophie and Archer was vital to the story line.

So this is a really good story and I really liked it, but I found the writing a little weak, and I feel like Sophie, who was I am guessing 15 really should be able to swear, drop an f-bomb every once and a while or sh*t. I found the story seemed older teen, but at the same time, the writing was very middle grade.

What'd you think? Interested in either book or movie?

About Me:
I review books, movies, and music. I also tend to have very eclectic tastes when it comes to all of those categories.
Movies: I'm more into drama, horror, indie, and comedies. I dislike romantic comedies or romances, but could enjoy them if I am in the right mood.

Music: Listen to everything under the sun except rap and country. At times, I am endearingly called an indie snob, and I like to open other people's ears to new sounds and bands that deserve to be heard.


If we don't like something we will always point out as many good points as possible and follow it up with the bad. If we absolutely hated it, chances are we just won't post about it at all. No one wants to read a rant about how much something disappointed. That's what friends are for. :)
