Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!

31 December 2014

And yet again, here we are at the end of another year! It's been a good year  - excluding the trainwreck that was the How I Met Your Mother finale ... lets not even got there! 2014 has brought me so many memorable events, from graduation to seeing two of my favourite bands perform live. There are just so many memories I'll cherish from this past year, from the events I've been to, and the wonderful people that I've met along the way. Plus, not to mention the amount of awesome things that came out this year - TFIOS, The Maze Runner, City of Heavenly Fire, The Flash to name a few. As we say goodbye to the past, I hope you may be able to look to the near future with hope, positivity and light. 

I can't wait to see what 2015 will bring! So from my heart to yours, I wish you a wonderful and prospectus happy new year! To this next coming year, and what more exciting adventurous that may bring! May 2015 be kind to you, and bring you unlimited happiness and joy. I'll see you on the other side with some awesome projects to come your way real soon! ^_^

29 December 2014

Continuing on with this year's favourites round up, it's time to pay tribute to the most memorable villains. 2014 gave us some pretty interesting villains in our mist, who were pretty unforgettable. They gave us chills and goosebumps, and made us ever so happy that we weren't on their hit list! Here are the most captivating - and my favourite - villains of 2014 that graced our screens (and books).

Favourite Books of 2014

27 December 2014

Reading is one of my favourite pastimes. I love losing myself in novels, and this year I read some pretty awesome stories. The amount of literature that has been released this year was amazing! We have so many stand alone novels, squeals novels. But only a selected few have been selected to be a part of this list. So from all the books I read this year, here are my top favourite five ...

As the countdown to Christmas ends, the countdown to New Year begins! 2014 has given so many amazing memories and so much fictional goodness.

Festive Films For The Holidays!

22 December 2014

It's only three wonderful days until Christmas morning, can you even believe it? I for one can't wait, and who knows maybe we'll wake up to the sight of snow in the morning. You really never know with English weather. I love this time of year. I love how the stores play Christmas songs, the art of buying presents for loved ones, and dressing up the Christmas tree. There is nothing quite like this time of year, and we aren't too far away from that special day! So to pull you through this extraordinarily long wait, here are a few films to get you into the festive spirit! 

Why I'm glad the Delirium pilot didn't get picked up

15 December 2014

Delirium is set in a futuristic world, where love is classified as a disease. Teenagers - at the tender age of 18 - are set to receive the cute that will forever rid them of love. From there, they will live out their lives planned by the government in so-called-contentment, away from the dangers of love and impulse. Things seem to be going according to plan for young Lena - who can not wait to get the Cure -, until she falls in love weeks before her appending due date. 

When Fox announced that it would be adapting Delirium to television, I was slightly sceptical, nervous but excited.
I loved Delirium. The story was incredibly well written and executed, and I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. I hoped that the producers would do it justice! The feeling of apprehension I had surrounding the adaptation continued on as the casting for the series was announced. But I kept hope. As long as the core principles of the story were kept, I didn't mind. In the end all that anticipation was left to waste, as the pilot was not picked up. As a fan of the series, I would have at least loved an opportunity to see the final cut! But now, after finally viewing the unaired pilot, it is so clear to see why this series did not get picked up after all. Despite the amount of potential within the pilot, there were many pitfalls that brought its downfall, including ... 

The Peter Pan Effect: Who wants to be a grown up anyway?

8 December 2014

When I turned 22 almost two weeks ago, I couldn't help but reminisce on past birthday's. In those young years, I remember the excitement that each birthday held as I turned a year older, and the anticipation of gifts and birthday wishes from friends and family alike. I remember being roughly 10 years old, and declaring to the people around me that I was 10 and a half. I also remember being terribly annoyed if anyone said anything otherwise. But yet somehow as we get older, we find ourselves reluctant to state our ages - with no mentions of in between fractions. We feel glad and blessed if we look younger than what we actually are, as opposed to older. As time passes we vividly embrace those memories that bring us closer to so called detrimental nostalgia, that stops us from seeing the positives yet to come. Here comes my theory called the Peter Pan Effect.

Autumn Favourites (Media Edition)

1 December 2014

It's tricky to know when Autumn truly ends, isn't it? Is it when the winter cold starts to kick in, or when we hit mid November? Either way, it's the first of December! And you know what that means - the beginning of the official countdown to Christmas! Although I'm sure many of you already have your Christmas tree put up in the living room, and have been jamming out to those Christmas tunes! A wonderful way of formally saying hello to the Christmas spirit is by honouring the awesome things that Autumn brought! So without further ado, here are the things I loved so dearly this Autumn ...
