Book Review 40: Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I finished this book last night/early this morning and loved it! I know I say that about, almost every book I read, but I really did love it. It is written in a style and manner unlike any book I have ever read. Though there is languages the book it is black out, literally. Also, there are no traditional chapters in this book. You get bits and pieces at a time that you have to put together. There is romance and suspense. Kady, the main protagonist loses everything, except for her beau, Ezra, expect until the rescue they weren't exactly in speaking terms. Now they are on opposite ships and only have each other left. With a haywire AI, that's possibly trying to kill them all, or is it protecting them? Can Kady save the few remains people from her home, or will they all be lost in the vast abyss? 
I feel like the whole family would enjoy this book. And overall, it if a family friendly book, preferably for ages 13+.
This book got me out of my very long reading slump. If you haven't read this book, you so should! It is an exciting read, that keeps you wanting more until the end. I hope that there will be a sequel soon! 
Amie and Jay are pure geniuses! They have an original story, that will hold anyone's attention!
It's a beast of a book, but a quick and captivating read. 

Go check it out!

Movie Review 25: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

I saw this movie last night, at a Lionsgate pre-release screening. And may I just say, it was beyond what I expected! It was absolutely amazing. The story picks up right where we left off in Part 1, and never slows down. You get to see the emotional (and physical) strain on everyone in this story. You see some of the relationship between Katniss and Gale progress, and then deteriorate. You see people rallying together to stop someone, and something they hate. 
~The Capitol has some major tricks up their sleeve, and they aren't going down without a fight. But neither is Katniss and her rag tag team of survivors. Besides, Peeta's deteriorating mind and pods (traps) are the least of their worries in the Capitol, what have they got to lose? When loyalties are tested, and decisions need to be made, who will the rebels and loyalists side with? 
Oh, everyone knows about the Mutts, right? Oh, you don't? Well I won't say anything then...
You are able to travel with Katniss as she comes to the realization that maybe, not everything she thought was good, was...
There are so many twists and turns in this movie, that they can be hard to keep up with. However, fans of the books, and movies, will be on the edge of their seats to the very end. Literally, THE VERY END. Every person in the theater about jumped out of their seats at the end... You know which scene I'm talking about 😉. And if you don't, I guess you will just have to watch the movie... Just saying, I was jumping for joy.
~Side note, remember when Elizabeth Banks posted about #Hayffie?~
Anyway, there are scenes you may cry (while I didn't actually cry, I did get very teary eyed), you laugh, you will have every possible emotion, while watching this crazy, amazing movie. I was literally flipping out, in my seat, just ask my Dad. I so want to see it again, and cannot wait to hear what everyone thought/thinks of it. Lionsgate, Francis Lawerence, and the whole cast and crew have done an amazing job on this movie as well as the past 2 movies. Gary Ross, did well with THG as well. I don't recall any language, however this is a very intense movie. I personally feel that everyone involved with this movie, have done an exceptional job with wrapping this movie up and tying a bow on it. And everyone has done a great job putting the books, that we all love, on the big screen. 
So once you've seen it let me know what you though of it. 

                                     ~That's all I can say without giving anything away~
Are you team Peeta's or Gale?
Rebel or loyalist?
Capitol or district? 
What has been your favorite/least favorite part of the movie franchise?

Oh, and to answer your question, the epilogue is in the movie if you didn't already know.
