Some book moments that made me go “nope”

Hey people, how’s it going? I hope you’re all well and healthy. Today I bring you another list of things about me and this time is about books. The moments in books I read that made me want to close the book and throw it through the window like Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook.

wtf

Admit it, if you’re a current reader, you felt identified with this scene. I know I did. This is not a post about moments that I didn’t like but more like moments that were too much to handle. let’s get into it.

WARNING: beware of the spoilers!

  • Jay Gatsby’s death/ The Great Gatsby

When I look back at this book I don’t feel sorry about his death, it’s not a book I became emotionally attached to but I will admit that when I first read it I was really frustrated for the reasons he died. I hate when bad things happen for stupid misunderstandings. To me, at 15/16 years old it was really unexpected, I think it was about the realism that this death provided. I was so used to happy endings and flowers and rainbows or idealistic futures like the one Gatsby had that his death was like if someone had thrown a glass of cold water at me.

  • Augustus Waters’ cancer / The Fault in Our Stars

That moment when everything is perfect and suddenly Augustus tells Hazel that his cancer was back and I wanted to literally throw the book through the window. I read this book pretty early so I had the good luck of not spoiling myself. Around when the movie was coming out it was impossible to enter to a social network without spoiling yourself that he was going to die, I mean, even the movie trailer made it really obvious. This is why Augustus death was a surprise to me. I mean, I knew someone was going to die I just expected it to be Hazel and not him.

  • Peeta’s hate towards Katniss / Mockingjay (The Hunger Games trilogy)

Peeta Mellark is one of my favorite characters from The Hunger Games so of course I suffered a lot when he was kidnapped and tortured. And just when he was back, relatively safe with Katniss who was coming around with her feelings, he went psycho and tried to kill her with his bare hands.

  • Finnick’s death / Mockingjay (The Hunger Games trilogy)

Finnick my ultimate hunger games favorite character had me so emotional, he got married with the woman he loved, Annie was pregnant and then boom, Finnick dead. His death was so fast and sudden that I had to go back and read it again because I was not sure those creatures actually killed him. Not to mention I didn’t even understand his death until I saw it on the movie, all I know is that with some few describing words this character was gone. I literally stopped reading the book for like 4 days in protest of what happened.

  • Snape killing Dumbledore / Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince

Even if it was part of a secret Dumbledore and Snape had and that Dumbledore was going to die anyways I suffered a lot when he killed the guy. First of all because I was trying to like Snape and second of all because WHO KILLS DUMBLEDORE?!? HE IS SO MAJESTIC. YOU JUST DON’T KILL HIM. Besides, Dumbledore’s death was one of the few Harry Potter’s death I didn’t know it was going to happen when I started reading the books.

  • Cinder is actually the lost princess Selene / Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles)

Yeah this made me go all “Nope” but not for the reason you might be thinking. It’s because it was so obvious!!! From the moment a baby supposedly dead was mentioned I had the feeling we were talking about Cinder whose past was all blurry and mysterious. She was a cyborg girl and the baby was supposedly killed in a fire, coincidence? I think not. Then when Kay says he was looking for her I instantly knew it was Cinder. I mean who else could be the lost princess of the exact same age Cinder is?

Everyone loves her

marilyn monroe

The life of others often interests me, I like being an observer in life, well, what I mean is I’m a really curious person who is always trying to understand everything, always trying to find reasons to why things happen, so people intrigue me. Where I’m going with this? I have no idea.

Oh wait I do, I do. Because people intrigue me, famous people who are always in the spotlight intrigue me a lot. When I was 16 I found a quote of Milton Greene’s (Marilyn Monroe’s personal photographer) wife, Amy Greene and I loved it. Marilyn Monroe always keeps me thinking, her life, her tragic end, she’s such and interesting person to know about. Anyway, I’ll leave it here for you to read.

“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” -Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene

What I’m into at the moment

Hello! I thought a lot about what to talk in my next post. I was going to talk about Disney and Universal but then I decided not to because it would be kind of boring just mentioning what rides I went to. The reason I wanted to talk about it really was because of some issues we had with my family in Universal Studios which was going to bring the whole subject of discrimination and all.

Instead I’m going to talk about what things have I been into in my winter holidays. So here it goes…

Tv Shows

In last “What I’m into at them moment” post I was into Grey’s Anatomy and about to start Elementary. I stopped watching Grey’s… not forever just momentarily because it was the only thing I could watch at the moment and I got a bit bored. I started Elementary and I think it’s great but I didn’t continue with it either. Instead what I’m obsessing at the moment is Bones.

Season_7_cast

Bones is one of those shows that never caught my attention, I was honestly not interested in watching it at all but because I was missing that Mulder and Scully vibe (I actually miss watching The X-Files) I thought maybe it was going to be something like that. I don’t know, I seem to have a thing for those kind of relationships between characters. I wasn’t disappointed, it’s pretty good. I lost my temper with Brennan and Booth’s relationship I was like “get the hell together already!!!”Some of the cases are a bit boring but the characters are great and I’m all about characters and relationships… and dead people.

Another  show I’m into at the moment and constantly thinking about re watching it is Stranger Things, yeah I know, pretty obvious since everyone loved it.

netflix-stranger-things-poster

I feel this show is like Twin Peaks meets The X-Files (I really miss watching this show) plus something new. When I started watching it I was not sure I was going to like it. Well obviously I was wrong. I loved the show, the theme, the plot though I was constantly putting my “wtf” expression, and the characters. All in all I think it deserves all the hype it’s getting because it’s pretty amazing.

Music

I have not been listening  to anything but Hamilton, it’s like a really bad obsession I’m having at the moment. At first when I heard about the musical a while ago I had three songs but then I started downloading more and more. Every time I listen to music I listen to the album and when I put shuffle on my music I pass all the songs until a Hamilton one is on. How awkward would it be for someone to ask me what I’m into the moment, I gained all this knowledge while listening and reading the songs in Genius.com, It’s not even the story of my country! I mean, what do I do with all this information about the US now? I started talking to my grandparents about Hamilton telling them about everything I learned about the dude in the 10 dollar bill… and that’s not even my country’s currency…

Books

The Diviners by Libba Bray, I have been waiting for this book for a while now. I spent an entire hour trying to find it in a book shop in Miami and when I finally got it I almost started crying of happiness. It’s just that every time I wanted to buy it in my own country they only had it in one book store and they were always out of stock so I gave up trying to get it and decided to wait for a trip to see if I could see

I’ll leave the goodreads summary

Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened.

Movie

I was really excited to watch Suicide Squad but the reviews took a bit of excitement. I know better that to read the reviews of the movies because they said that Batman v Superman was not good and I personally thought it was a piece of art.

On the other hand I saw Ghostbusters and loved it, I really want to watch it again.

Ghostbusters-2016

Clothes & accessories

I never was into Disney pins because I know that if I started collecting them I would end up broke, I always wanted though. On my last visit to Disney however I took these three and I love them.

And then I finally  bought a Hufflepuff scarf at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal. I use it all the time since it’s cold here.

Hope I entertained you, see ya!

 

(movie) REVIEW: Ghostbusters

img_6836

Just came home from the cinema which means: yeah, another crappy review. I hope you know that when I do reviews I just want to talk about the movie I just saw, not about the good or bad qualities the movie had in a cinematographically speaking way.

Anyways, I just saw Ghostbusters which was a film I was so desperately waiting to see. Though it has 73% of rotten tomatoes, here in my country it wasn’t so popular apparently because it’s only been two weeks since the release and there was only one function at 11pm

Honestly I don’t understand why because it was AMAZING. It was so funny and great and it makes me so happy that it got such good reviews and critics because people (white men probably) where trying to sabotage it. I also know before coming out they were criticizing the special effects of the movie but let me assure you they’re pretty great. And not only they were not happy about the protagonists being woman and the special effects of the movie but they also bullied Leslie Jones up to the point where she had to leave twitter. How mean can people be to bully a woman for being in a movie and criticize her about her skin color and body? That is so sick! Leslie was amazing in the movie and definitely made me laugh a lot, honestly she was a highlight.

I’m going to be honest, I watched the other ghostbusters but never kind of got into it. I did like the catchy song though. When I heard they were doing an all woman remake I got really interested and even more when I found out Kate McKinnon was going to be there because I love her a lot, she’s so funny and cool. She was so good in the movie making all the audience laugh with everything she did.

Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig were also amazing along with Chris Hemsworth who I was also glad to see in the movie, he made me laugh a lot, besides being Thor I think he should also focus in comedy because it suits him.

In conclusion if you haven’t watch it go and do it because you will laugh and you won’t regret it. There are some awesome appearances of the original cast too so that’s a plus.
