Mockingjay book review

Ok, so even though I complained about book one and the way the author was lazy and then went on to read book two and complained about how I thought it was a set up for the next book, I still went on to read book three, Mockingjay because my sister promised me that the books were real good and if I just had an open mind and I wasn't so old I would love them like she did. She was wrong.

I tried to keep an open mind, but with so much senseless killing of new characters and old characters that I found myself actually starting to get attached too, it was hard for me to even finish this book.

I was kind of apposed to the whole concept of killing children for sport in the beginning anyway, but this last book brought the whole meaning of innocent murder to life. This is not a children's book or a young adult book. Its gory and sad, but if you like that stuff then go for it, plus she totally ruined the love story between Peeta and Katniss which was the only reason I wanted to keep reading.

I guess I am too old to read a book about murdering children. Why didn't someone tell me this earlier so I wouldn't have wasted my time and brain space with these horrible images that are now ingrained in my mind. My next book, I have a feeling is going to be a happy go lucky love story where no one dies. I don't think I can handle anything more.

So, If you want a really slow read about Murdering children then pick up this monstrosity.

I would like to reiterate that this is my opinion and if you loved the books I won't judge you (Lindsey,) but I would like to hear what you liked about the book if you put aside the gruesome war story.

What I'm reading this week and the #WeeklyMenu Week #254

Welcome back to Monday. We had a wonderful first full week of summer break. The boys and I ran into a cool event at our local library. It was a park and play... or something like that. The local fire department and police force were out with all their cool vehicles. The boys got to sit in them and talk to the police and fire fighters. Their favorite part was trying to find who had the cool stickers. 


Saturday, my husband and I took a mini vacation and went to a friends wedding in Scappoose, OR. There isn't much there, but cow poop and air planes. We did find a llama and it made some weird noises. The weather was strange. Rain, sun, rain, sun. Come on, Oregon. Pick one.
My husband and I like to play a game. If we were to open a shop in this little town, what would it be called. I came up with the "Scap and Poose." A hole in the wall bar. "You want to go down to the Scap and Poose and get a beer?"

The Girl With All the Gifts | Movie Review

Title: The Girl with all the Gifts
Genre: Dystopian

Release Date: January 26th, 2017 Rating: 6.7/10 IMDB Cast: Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton
Summary from IMDB: A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie.
IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…
