Top 10 Books That I Liked A Bit More As Movies

10 For 10 Mettel Ray

I’m starting this week off by bringing you ten book to movie adaptations that I thought worked wonderfully. All these books are okay, some are actually very good, but others simply aren’t as strong. The point of the Top 10 list is that the movies were better than books. Yes, I love some adaptations a bit more than the books and that is rare. By the way, I’ve been reading less books lately, so if you have any recommendations to…

Top 5 HBO Shows To Watch During Self-Quarantine

Top 5 Tv-show

Well, how about these eventful times, eh? Anyone feeling anxious, panicked, worried – well, you’re definitely not alone. The corona pandemic has made its way to almost every country. Including mine, Estonia, which is super tiny with only 1,3 million people and has already over 200 infected (as we know of). Statistically we are not doing so great. Thankfully I have the option to work from home but I can just imagine how stressful it is for those who can’t…

Doctor Sleep (2019)

Movie

Back in April 2018 I wrote that the ending of The Shining left a lot of questions unanswered. Well, enter Doctor Sleep that answers all of them while trying to balance the new with the old and dropping some old into the new. This was definitely not an easy task but hey, I think it turned out better than I anticipated.…

It Chapter Two (2019)

Movie

It’s been a hot minute since I sat down and wrote a review. It has been so long I feel like I don’t even know how and where to begin. And it has been quite a while since I saw this movie so… let’s see how it holds up! I’ll start with the simplest of ways. I did not love It Chapter Two. The movie had its moments, some of which will forever remain my favourite, but overall, the magic…

Blindspot 2018, April: The Shining

Blindspot

That’s right, I had not seen The Shining before last week and I’m okay with that. Because only in recent years have I started to appreciate horror, and its genre for something other than jump scares and blood splatters. So it seems that it was just the right time for me, to finally watch The Shining.…

Reading Wrap Up: July

Literature

These images are taken from my personal bookstagram account Well another month has passed and I’m still on track with my reading challenge. It may seem like a weird thing to say, considering I had a month off from work this past July, but it was a surprise to me. Partly because I didn’t feel like reading at the beginning of summer, and then I decided to pick up a massive book. Luckily, everything worked out well, and I actually…

Commercial Break #79

Extra

Images from Tumblr. Part of me feels I wasted two whole weeks of vacation on nothing. I didn’t write any reviews, I didn’t finish reading Stephen King’s It, and I watched mostly shitty movies and binge watched one show. As you can see, I had no grand adventures nor trips during the past two weeks, and now that I’m on sick leave, I doubt I’ll manage to climb any hills any time soon. But if my hills are reviews, then…

Commercial Break #78

Extra

Images from Tumblr. Since my last Commercial Break I’ve gone through a huge emotional roller coaster and it hasn’t been nice. Though now that I’ve enjoyed my vacation for almost a week I feel like things are slowly getting better but I’m still an emotional wreck. Nothing seems to be helping either, books, movies, shows, not to mention, writing. But I’m hanging in there, trying to be strong and not think negative thoughts, especially considering what this week is going…
