Books: Most Anticipated Releases 2016

Standard

Today I thought I would write a quick blog post on my most anticipated book releases for the upcoming months. I am a massive book lover and there are few books I cannot wait to have my hands on.

  1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling and Jack Thorne.

This is a script book of the newest addition to the Harry Potter series/franchise, a new play that will open at the Palace Theatre London in July 2016. As a Harry Potter fan, it would be a sin not to have this book on my list.

This book is to be released on the 31st of July.jhgfg

  1. The Dark Artifices Book 1 – Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare.

This is the first book in a spin-off trilogy to The Mortal Instruments series. I am a huge fan of The Mortal Instruments books. I have read the six books of the main series, and I was just bought The Infernal Devices trilogy and The Shadowhunter’s Codex for my birthday. I am hoping to read The Bane Chronicles next. Needless to say I can’t wait for even more Mortal Instruments content!

This book is to be released on the 8th of March.

  1. On The Other Side by Carrie Hope Fletcher.

This is probably the most anticipated book on my most anticipated books list. The concept of this book sounds incredible. The Waterstones summary is as follows: Evie Snow is eighty-two when she quietly passes away in her sleep, surrounded by her children and grandchildren. It’s the way most people wish to leave the world but when Evie reaches the door of her own private heaven, she finds that she’s become her twenty-seven-year-old self and the door won’t open.

Evie’s soul must be light enough to pass through so she needs to get rid of whatever is making her soul heavy. For Evie, this means unburdening herself of the three secrets that have weighed her down for over fifty years, so she must find a way to reveal them before it’s too late. As Evie begins the journey of a lifetime, she learns more about life and love than she ever thought possible, and somehow, some way, she may also find her way back to her long lost love.’kjh

I cannot wait to read Carrie’s first fiction book, due out on the 14th July, especially after reading her debut book All I know Now which I thoroughly enjoyed.

  1. The Luxe Life by Fleur DeForce.

I really enjoyed Fleur’s The Glam Guide, which came out last year, and since this book is a follow up to that I cannot wait to read it.

This book is to be released on the 28th July.

  1. Tanya Bakes by Tanya Burr.

Tanya Burr who realised Love, Tanya last year, is releasing a complete baking book due to high demand. Tanya’s channel, known mostly for beauty and make-up, has seen the odd baking video and they are always very popular. I love Tanya’s baking and I can’t wait to buy this baking book and make all the treats inside!

This book is to be released on the 30th June.

Film: Deadpool

Standard

Deadpool-Poster-Dec1st.jpgThis Valentine’s weekend, I saw Deadpool at cinemas. ‘Crashing’ a friends Valentine’s date, I sat with five of my friends in the packed screening, feeling like I was the least excited out of all of them. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted to see Deadpool, but since I love X-men and Marvel as they are, I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy Deadpool quite as much. It was going to be a little different and I didn’t know what to expect.

Fortunately, I truly loved the film. Its fourth-wall breaking humour was spectacular and made it such a unique film. Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool was on point – no better way to say it. He really made the character.

For the few of you reading who are not familiar with Marvel’s Deadpool character here is a little summary from IMDB about the film: ‘This is the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.’

However, this film is a love story. Of course, that is part of the joke of Deadpool being released Valentine’s weekend, but I found this a really lovely part of the film too.

The cast were great; I’ve already mentioned Ryan Reynolds, but here are some of the other brilliant actors who made the film what it is: Morena Baccarin, Karan Soni, Ed Skrein, Stefan Kapicic, Brianna Hildebrand and T.J.Miller.

Here’s the trailer:

Check out the film!

Beauty: Zoella’s Let’s Spritz Fragrance

Standard

dsjfhjdI am recommending Zoella’s Let’s Spritz Fragranced Body Mist. Previously I have recommended her Blissful Mistful body mist which you can see here.

I have very much adopted the YouTube culture of this decade, with many YouTubers bringing out books and products. Some of these include beauty products from Zoella, Tanya Burr, Fleur de Force and Ruth Crilly and stationary from Jim Chapman under the name ‘James and Friends’. Zoella’s products are no different and I very much enjoy them.j

One of my best friends has made it a tradition of sorts to buy me Zoella’s fragrances as presents. This Christmas she bought me the Let’s Spritz body mist and I love it. The perfume is sweet but is a little more grown up than Zoella’s last fragrance, not that either are childish in any way.

The size of the perfume is 45ml and genuinely lasts a long time – well worth the money, since… It’s cheap! You can find Zoella’s products at Superdrug. The first fragrance was usually £8 or £9 but this one is almost half the price at £4.80 (source: freeunique).

Film: Daddy’s Home

Standard

ksjdAbout three weeks ago I met up with a friend to swap Christmas presents and to see a film at the cinema. We chose to watch Daddy’s Home.

Daddy’s Home, a comedy, is about two men and the family they share. One man, Brad, is the perfect dad and has been wanting children of his own for a long time. He’s married to Sara and is the Step Dad to her two children. Just as he’s finally being accepted as their new dad, Dusty Mayron turns up to unsettle everything. Dusty is the children’s biological father and Sara’s ex-husband; he’s reckless and not very responsible but he’s very cool. Hijinks ensue as the two men challenge each other and try to win over their family.

With a cast starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg little was going to be bad about this film. Supporting them, the cast includes: Linda Cardellini, Thomas Haden Church, Scarlett Estevez, Owen Vaccaro, Hannibal Buress and Bobby Cannavale.

Here’s the trailer:

Enjoy!
