Welcome to my public review page. No, this isn't a place for you to review my fics. You can email me or sign my guestbook for that! Instead, I'll be writing reviews of the films I see and books I read. I hope I can be of service to you guys!

Movie Reviews

Pride and Prejudice was extremely well-done. Although wonderfully entrancing and beautiful, I wasn't expecting such a subtle and different exploration of Elizabeth Bennett's character from Keira Knightley. She and Matthew McFayden have brilliant chemistry (and he most definitely embodies Mr. Darcy!) and make the film very easy to get into. I give it an 8/10. I encourage you guys to go see it. :)

How I Live Now, by Meg Rosoff

How I Live Now is one of the most magical and touching stories of our time. Rosoff gives a unique and ambiguous look into the life of 15-year-old Daisy, a New-Yorker with Anorexia who is sent to England by her father to live with her estranged cousins. An occupation takes place in the UK during her visit, and Daisy is forced to grow up, and truly live for the first time. I'm telling you guys, this book is amazing.
