Release Date: August 28th 2018
Publisher: Razorbill
After her family is killed by corrupt warlord Aric Athair and his bloodthirsty army of Bullets, Caledonia Styx is left to chart her own course on the dangerous and deadly seas. She captains her ship, the Mors Navis, with a crew of girls and women just like her, who have lost their families and homes because of Aric and his men. The crew has one mission: stay alive, and take down Aric's armed and armored fleet.

But when Caledonia's best friend and second-in-command barely survives an attack thanks to help from a Bullet looking to defect, Caledonia finds herself questioning whether to let him join their crew. Is this boy the key to taking down Aric Athair once and for all...or will he threaten everything the women of the Mors Navis have worked for?

Movie Review: #ASimpleFavor



A Simple Favor 
Director: Paul Feig
Writers: Jessica Sharzer (screenplay by), Darcey Bell (based upon the novel by)
Starring: Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, Henry Golding
MPAA Rating: R

A SIMPLE FAVOR, directed by Paul Feig, centers around Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), a mommy blogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily's (Blake Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town.
Every since I saw the trailer for this movie, I wanted to see it, so I was quite excited to be invited to go to a screening to do a review for you all. I've loved Anna Kendrick since the Twilight movies, but mostly, she is pretty, quirky, and dorky in real life, and I love it (because so am I). Blake Lively is just stunning to look at and also a good actress. The two of them together? I felt like it was perfection.

The director of the movie said in an interview that "A Simple Favor" is a thriller but with comedy, and he couldn't be more accurate. It's definitely a thriller and, if you've seen the trailer (if not, it's at the end of this review so you can watch it), you might agree with me that it reminded me a bit of "Gone Girl". As I watched the movie, it really confirmed it for me. Although, I admit I've never seen "Gone Girl", I've only read the book, but you get what I mean. They do have you guessing about how some Emily disappeared, how it all happened, and why. They also make it seem like there's something else going on we haven't realized yet. I loved having different theories and trying to figure everything out. I was only right about one of my theories. #EpicFail.

Let's talk a little bit about Anna Kendrick's character, Stephanie. I took my best friend with me to the screening and she told me halfway through the movie what I had been thinking since the beginning: Stephanie reminded her of me. I absolutely loved her character and she is definitely the comedic relief of the movie, but also the strongest and best character, in my humble opinion. She is also the one who has probably the best character development, and I love it when they underestimate a character and said character then surprises everyone. Really and truly loved Anna Kendrick in this movie, more than in any other one I've seen of her.

Blake Lively's character is also slightly unpredictable, and it's one of those personalities you aren't sure if you like her or not. But, I cannot deny she is interesting. And I absolutely loved her fashion sense and just how she portrayed this character overall. She was funny, sweet, cynical, loving, sexy, and smart all at once. It was fun to watch this, I am not going to lie. Also, I absolutely love her hair. Vain, I know, but I couldn't help admire it throughout the whole movie.

Another thing I really loved in the movie was the two little boys that play Emily and Stephanie's kids. They're so tiny, but so talented and adorable. They really did a great job and I look forward to their growing movie careers.

In conclusion, if you want to have fun with a movie, go see this one. I honestly had a great time watching it and I wouldn't mind watching it again. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!








Trailer Thursday: The Iron Flower by Laurie Forest



The Iron Flower
The Black Witch Chronicles #2
Author: Laurie Forest
Release Date: September 18th 2018
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Dark forces are on the rise in this sweeping sequel to The Black Witch by critically acclaimed author Laurie Forest.

Elloren Gardner and her friends were only seeking to right a few wrongs when they rescued a Selkie and freed a military dragon. The last thing they expected was to be thrust into a realm-wide underground resistance against Gardnerian conquest.

While the Resistance struggles to fight back against the harsh rulings of the Mage Council, more and more Gardnerian soldiers descend upon the University…led by none other than Lukas Grey, now commander of the nearby military base. Though Elloren tries to keep him at arm's length, Lukas is determined to tie himself to her, still convinced that she is the heir to the power of the Black Witch, a legacy of magic that will decide the future of all Erthia. As his own magic calls out to her, seeking to awaken a dark force within, Elloren finds it more and more difficult to believe that she's truly powerless, as her uncle always claimed.

Caught between her growing feelings for the rebellious Yvan Guriel and the seductive power offered by Lukas, Elloren must find a way to stay true to what she knows is right and protect everyone she loves…even if that means protecting them from herself.
