Week movies

As this week comes to an end, I must admit that my reading levels are hitting rock bottom. Bookwise, I did not make any progress, except for the fact that I started reading “Nimona“, a graphic novel that I first read about on Over The Place. It is about a girl that happens to be a shapeshifter, who ends up being a villain’s sidekick. It is quite fun and easy to read so far. The illustration is simple, yet charming and I shall tell you more about it once I finish it.

On Thursday I watched “Room” as it premiered here in Greece and I was so agog to see Emma Donoghue’s book adaptation on the big screen. I really loved the book, as it was the first to make me cry, and I can say that the movie did not disappoint me. It must be one of the best book-to-movie adaptations out there. Brie Larson was amazing but the one that really deserves every award on this planet is Jacob Tremblay, who was absolutely stunning. I never knew a little kid could perform like that and I was totally blown away by his performance!

I also started watching the Divergent series on Friday and I must say I really, really liked the first two parts, “Divergent” and “Insurgent“. For those of you who are not familiar with the series, it’s about a post-apocalyptic future of humanity, in which the remaining people live in Chicago, and have built a wall around it to be protected. They are divided into factions based on virtues but Tris -the protagonist- finds out that she fits into more than one, which makes her a Divergent. And then the action starts kicking in! I have not read the books by Veronica Roth on which the movies are based but I loved the adaptations -maybe more than the Hunger Games series- and cannot wait for the final part, “Allegiant“.

P.S. *SPOILER ALERT* In “Divergent” I watched what I think is the most believable character’s death on the big screen ever. You can watch it here.

  1. Χαίρομαι που σ’άρεσε το Room. Εγώ δεν νομίζω ότι θα αντέξω να πάω να το δω, γενικά αυτό το θέμα για κάποιο λόγο είναι too sensitive για μένα. Αλήθεια σ’άρεσαν τα Divergent? Γενικά δεν ήταν και πολύ καλογυρισμένα, κλασσικά τα βιβλία πολύ καλύτερα, εκτός από το τρίτο, το οποίο ήταν κάκιστο (δεν μπορείς να φανταστείς πόσο με έχει τσαντίσει αυτό το βιβλίο, δεν θα σου πω κάτι για να μη σου κάνω spoil εννοείται). Μόνο αγάπη για Nimona ❤
    Η ίδια κοπέλα έχει βγάλει και το Lumberjanes αν σ'ενδιαφέρει να κοιτάξεις.

    1. Μου άρεσε πολύ σαν concept, αν και δεν έχω διαβάσει τα βιβλία για να συγκρίνω!
      Το lumberjanes το έχω επίσης δει στο blog σου και είναι στα TBR!


      1. Α ωραία! Βασικά αν σ’άρεσε το Divergent, θα σ’αρέσει σίγουρα και το Maze Runner και το 5th Wave που έρχεται σε λίγες μέρες στα ελληνικά σινεμά 🙂
