  2. Enjoy your read, Freda! I just finished reading The Red Sparrow, interesting to see more books about Russians :) I know the movie didn't do well in the reviews, but I liked the movie way better than the book...Go figure!

    Happy Easter!

  7. I've never really been a fan of Dostoevsky to be honest. I've read Crime and Punishment twice; for high school and then uni. It was a struggle both times. I hope you like his writing though :)

  9. Woman, you can read much deeper books than I can. If I even tried to read Dostoevsky at this point in my life, my brain would explode! LOL Thank you for adding me to Linky.

  10. Just read this for my litcourse. Makes you rather depressing, does it not? However, it is a fine example of the new realistic style of writing that came up at this time.

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
