Where Avengers Endgame let me down. *SPOILERS*

Where Avengers Endgame let me down. *SPOILERS*

Last night, I saw Avengers Endgame and although everyone in my friend group loved it, I wasn’t blown away. At first I thought there was one specific reason it didn’t work for me but after giving it some time (a.k.a about ten hours), I just kept finding more and more things that annoy me. And I know I’m hard to please when it comes to stories but some of these made me cringe so hard I though my face would…

I know.. it’s the middle of March and I’m only just starting to write this post. I’ve been dragging my feet and I know I should stop but the cold and the rain are getting to me. Can it be spring already? I’m desperate for some warmer, sunnier days. Books I read in February The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton I LOVED this book. It was so full of details and intense, really intense. Yes, I’ll say…

Book vs Movie: High-Rise

Book vs Movie: High-Rise

The plot: When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on “enemy” floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle. My thoughts: I read the book last year when I heard that they were making it into a movie. I loved the story and devoured the…

Wintertime means cozy nights and cold mornings. It also means cute Christmas movies, hot cups of tea and coffee. Are there movies you watch every year? Or is that just me?

The awful Christmas sweaters, the awkward conversations. You don’t only get Colin Firth (yum) but…

I want to write a book (perferably bookS) but I can’t seem to start. I’ve got stories in my head but never succeed in putting them…
