Outlander & Dragonfly in Amber “Review”

Author: Diana Gabaldon

Where to start? I like them enough, but I had already watched the first 2 season of the series, and I must say they are pretty similar to the books, I could easily picture Sam Heugham and Caitriona Balfe while reading, although Jamie is much taller in the books.

Brianna and Roger on the other hand, are nothing like in the books, sorry for the actor and actress who portray them, but they did not work for me, one bit.

Intimate Enemies (close review)

Shana Abe

Let us begin with this, the book is not for everyone. That said, I loved it!

How many do I say that about a book? Quite often, I know, but if you know me then you know I mostly write here about the books I enjoyed.

Intimate Enemies was difficult for me to really start reading, I had it on my phone for some time actually, and I had read the first page I think, first line and was like, eh, maybe not, even though it was Shana’s and I love how she writes, one of my favourite authors, in case you didn’t figure that one out due to the extensive quotes I have all around from her books, and the fact that most of my reviews are about books by her.

I strayed from the path there, sorry. Back to IE, it has a certain uniqueness to it; the book is set years ago, as in 1170’s more or less, and by the title you can guess that this two clans are not really friendly, until Arion and Lauren are old enough to know they have a thing for each other. Are you planning on reading the book? Don’t worry there is not much spoiler here.

50 Shades of Grey

Book and Movie

Alright, as many of you may know, I don’t  normally  do movies  here but I haven’t  done 50 shades the book either and since I saw the movie, I felt like I should let it out of my system. Then I decided to make a little combo just for the sake of it and because Jamie is an awesome actor.

FSOG the book

Many of you know that it was originally thought as a Twilight fan fiction, no matter what anyone might try to say to deny that, and let us face it people, the resemblance is there, if you want a short list of them I can give it to you know.

FSOG – Twilight

*Anastasia (Ana) Steele.

*Isabella (Bella) Swan.

They both want to be called by their nickname.

They both think they are not pretty, even when the man of their life says otherwise; they both do crazy stuff to protect their hot boyfriend like cutting the palm of their hand so a vindictive vampiresse go after them or go meet a crazy ex-employee.

They both get pregnant even when the guy didn’t want a child and then the hot bf comes around and loves the kid (obviously is their son/daughter)

*Edward Cullen

*Christian Grey

Both have issues. (One more than the other). They are rich, they are adopted, and they want to buy expensive stuff to their girls.

*The families

Younger sister of C.G aka Alice from Twilight, they both love the brunette straightaway, they both are annoyingly sparkly.

Rosalie and Kate, both gorgeous and Bella/Ana wishes to be a little more like them in their heads most of the time.

Elliot and Emmett, come on. Even the names are similar and the personalities completely the same.

The same for the parents.

Oh! The most important thing of all, the break-up in book two, come on! Bella and Ana living on nothing, basically. And depressed to no end.

Moving on.
