Adaptation Review: Netflix’s Thirteen Reasons Why

Aha so now we enter controversial territory. I’m doing this review as part of the blog challenge for the Summer Bibib, which is to write a book review. Technically, I’m doing an adaptation review but I’ve been meaning to do this review anyway so I thought I’d just force it into this challenge. I’ll also review a bit of the book so maybe it counts? Anyway.

Review: The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices

This summer, I took on the rather daunting goal of reading the Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, at least the first two series. I never really intended or wanted to read them but they just get so much hype on Booktube that I just felt like I should read them so that I could understand what people were talking about. It was a rollercoaster of a journey to say the least. I read them in publication order so the two series kinda intertwined for me and just felt like a giant 9-book series. Still, I shall review them separately because I had very different feelings for each of the series.

Adaptation Review: The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train is about an alcoholic woman who witnesses something out of the window of a train and finds herself entangled in a mysterious web of lies and deceit, not exactly unwillingly. It’s based on a supposed best-selling novel but if you saw my post about my¬†Most Disappointing Books of 2016, you’ll know that I didn’t really think much of the book. I wasn’t really planning on watching this movie after I missed it in the theaters but then I saw Luke Evans in Beauty and the Beast and I just had to see more of his work. So that was basically my sole reason for watching this movie haha.

Review: The Hunger Games

So I know that this is incredibly outdated because the whole Hunger Games phenomenon has kinda died down already but I figure, now’s the best time to be as objective as I can without the influence of the hype right? Plus, I recently reread the series again so my points are quite fresh in my mind. There will be spoilers ahead but honestly, if you haven’t read the books or at least seen the movies, what have you been doing?
