Snapchat filters are so funny 😂 I really want to carry on reading ACOTAR but I'm just not in a reading mood at the moment ... so I'll probably read in bed tonight🌙✨

Street Trilogy: Car/Raw/Kid | Chris O'Connell
post image
Mehso-so

Raw by Chris o'Connell is an okay script. I like it but I feel that it's not explained well enough and so by the end of the script your still left with questions that really shouldn't be there. The style of writing is great and the characters are very credible ... the plot just doesn't feel completed by the end of it ...

Divergent | Veronica Roth
post image
Mehso-so

I thought this book was good and it was a fun read but I was expecting more...I felt that it fell short of my expectations (particularly because of the hype surrounding the series). The series picked up for me and I loved the final book but I just found that something was missing and I just can't quite put my finger on it...overall, a fun read and I can definitely see why this would be a 5⭐️ read for some!
My review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️/⭐️ (3.5)

“Who are you?” said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, “I - I hardly know, sir, just at present - at least I know who I was when I woke up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.”

I enjoyed all of these books! Particularly “The Tales of Beedle the Bard”. There's so much character to them & it's a wonderful extension to the wizarding world that most of us have now come to love. Also, I just love these editions of the books! Definitely recommended if you love the Harry Potter series & want to expand your knowledge of it. They're all very quick, but very fun, to read 📚

So far I'm really enjoying this book 😊 I'm surprised it's taken me so long so start this series ... but I have a bad feeling about a certain character *cough* Tamlin *cough*

Another little introduction as I'm new here😊
1) Never have read Harry Potter so at least I can experience the magic all over again ❤️
2) /slightly weirded out by this question😂/ Always spill food in my books, I guess...😂
3) Dust jacket off...It irritates me when it starts to slide off while I read
4) Poetry! I need to invest myself in a story and prefer them to be long so I can fully connect📖
5) Black and White⚫️⚪️

Welcome to Litsy! Okay, here I go 😃
1. Never have read Harry Potter, don't get me wrong.. I love HP but I also like to read other books 😊
2. Only use dog ears as bookmarks, I think that's going to hurt less than food spilled 😭
3. Always read with the dust jacket off, not a big fan of dust jackets..
4. Only read short stories 📖 poetry is great, but I need an unfolding plot!
5. Only own colourful books ❤️💛💚💙💜

A great book for anyone studying German! Brilliant explanations, examples an easy to grasp (even for beginners). Collins is wonderful when it comes to language dictionaries and is by far my absolute favourite! I can't wait to buy a Japanese one
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cherrielein0508 It's so funny to see someone else trying to learn your language, when you're hustling hard to learn theirs. 😊 Good luck. 🍀 3y
HollieTurner @Cherrielein0508 Haha! Thank you! I'm getting their slowly but surely. I've found that English and German are very similar which is a big help 😊 3y
Cherrielein0508 @HollieTurner That's right. But I think that the grammar in german is a little bit - I don't want to say harder - more complex. What do you think? ? Always down for a "practice conversation" ?☺️?? 3y
See All 8 Comments
HollieTurner @Cherrielein0508 I agree! But I think English is really difficult because sentence structures are so weird sometimes 😂 3y
Cherrielein0508 That's true! I mean, I know the words, but sometimes there not in the right order, or the sentence sounds weird, or "too german". ? Hard to explain ? And there are those words, that sound to familiar. Their, they're, your, you're...but I kinda got used to it. Do you have the same "problems" with the German language? 3y
Cherrielein0508 See...they're 3y
HollieTurner @Cherrielein0508 I think my main difficulty is just when to use der, die and das ... It's simple but I always end up confusing them 😄 3y
Cherrielein0508 Yeah, that's pretty tough. 3y

#Throwback to rehearsals when I had the pleasure to play Alice, in the modern stage adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. This was such a brilliantly intriguing take on the original and the script is marvellous! If you can, I highly recommend any lovers of Alice in Wonderland to read this script ❤️🐇🕕☕️🎩#AliceInWonderland #CheshireCat #MadHatter #KnaveOfHearts #QueenOfHearts #TweedleDee #TweedleDum #WhiteRabbit #Duchess #LewisCarroll #Script #Actor

“Within days of remembering how to put one foot in front of the other and not fall over, I'd walked and counted and mapped with pictures in my mind every floor of the hospital that was access allowed. I could have found each nurses' station, lab and room by number blindfolded; I could close me eyes now and see it all before me.”
