My Obsession With The Little Mermaid Continues…

The side effect of binge watching movies all weekend is reviews…la laalalala la.

Okay that was a horrible, horrible joke at the expense of The Chainsmokers’ Side Effects ft. Emily Warren (watch the video featuring Riverdale’s Camila Mendes if you haven’t already) but whatever works. :p

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – Movie Review

Let me just tell you right now, this film is solid 5 ⭐ , gold, coming of age material.

Based on a novel by the same name, penned by Jenny Han, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a story of a lonely half-Asian, half-American teen, Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) who is used to living life vicariously through her elder sister Margot Covey (Janel Parrish). She also writes love-letters to her crushes, but they’re a diary of sorts. These letters aren’t to be mailed. Ever. Continue reading “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – Movie Review”

Enchanted Garden With A Dark Twist

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book is so full of colour and life and drips raw emotion with every word and each new chapter has its own scent and just so amazing that every adjective I use to describe this fantastic novel will be drab and dull and fail to do justice to the story and to the lovey Anna-Marie McLemore. Continue reading “Enchanted Garden With A Dark Twist”

The Seven Deadly Sins [Tag]

This tag has been making rounds on book blogs and I came across it on Serendipitous Reads‘ blog (you’ll love her if you’re a bibliophile) and she tagged anyone reading the post. So here’s what I’m guilty of.

The One About TV Sequels

Too much of good thing is bad? Who said that, ever?!

We can never have enough of some stories, be it TV shows or films, that’s why we have reboots and sequels! Whether they surpass the original in terms of quality and/or popularity is debatable, but they sure do get the viewer excited to see some of their favourite characters back on the screen.

The Princess Diaries: Meghan, Duchess of Sussex

Even as I write this, I’m a little annoyed at myself for being so caught-up in Her Royal Highness Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s fairytale romance. I blame a large part of my curiosity on Google and it’s incessant updates regarding their nuptials (no Google didn’t give me these updates because I kept searching Meghan Markle, I’m a fan of Suits, a tv show she used to be a part of), the rest is all me. 😛 Continue reading “The Princess Diaries: Meghan, Duchess of Sussex”

Sirens, Pirates, Mermen and More…

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

“A prince may be the subject of myth and legend,” he explains, “but he can’t live in them. He should live in the real world, where he can create them.” He looks solemn. “You should pay less mind to fairy tales, Elian, or that’s all you’ll become.”

When he leaves, I think about whether that would be awful, or beautiful. Could it really be such a bad thing, to become a story whispered to children in the dead of night? A song they sing to one another while they play.

The literary fiction world is being dominated by YA authors popping in on the scene left right and center. Amidst this overcrowded genre, the sub-genre of retold fairy tales has carved a niche for itself and authors like Sarah J. Maas and Renee Ahdieh have ensured that mark won’t fade away with the passing of time. Continue reading “Sirens, Pirates, Mermen and More…”

What’s ‘super’ about Krypton?

Rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

SyFy’s Krypton does all that it can to hook you into the world of Els and Zods, yet something is still amiss. The ambitious show has debuted in the absolute right time, this is the Golden Age of comics! With time by its side and audience ripe for picking, why hasn’t the show fared the way The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl have? Pressing questions right?!
