Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor is a funny and absorbing fantasy fiction by Rick Riordan. This book is about Magnus Chase who entered the world of Norse Gods. He is given the task of retrieving Thor’s hammer from the king of earth giants. He and his friend’s scheme and travel to every length, even if it means that they have to let out the God’s oldest prisoner. I love the way Rick Riordan portrays the gods, he makes them act either serious or super funny. I recommend this book to those who don’t know what to read or too bored and need something to do. That is why I rate Magnus Chase and

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is one of the best books that I have ever

The end to an amazing trilogy was hard to think of because many people loved the Christopher Nolan trilogy but for the final movie this could not have been better. I loved every second of The Dark Knight Rises because it creates a whole new Batman. After Batman took the responsibility for Harvey Dent’s crimes, Two Face, he quit being Batman. Eight years later Bruce Wayne stays locked in his room at Wayne Manor until a highly skilled and deadly opponent introduces himself to Gotham. Bane was a member of the League of Assassins and aspired to fulfil Ra’s al Gul’s destiny. I had an amazing time

The Dark Knight is an amazing movie from the aftermath of Batman Begins. This new Batman movie has action, mystery, suspense, and drama. The Dark Knight begins with a mysterious murder being chased by Batman. The Clown Prince of Crime wants to see the city burn and is obsessed with showing Batman they are the same. Bruce Wayne tries to stop the Joker but every step he takes he ends up losing someone. I recommend this movie to everyone, superheroes fans or not, because it has everything you would want in an action and suspenseful movie.

Batman Begins was a mind-blowing movie to watch because it showed how Gotham was meant to be. In DC’s previous 4 Batman films they introduce Gotham in a good way, but Christopher Nolan has introduced the best Gotham City that could be made. Batman Begins starts in a gritty, dark, dirty, and crime infested city where Bruce Wayne’s parents get shot. He becomes an orphan and leaves Gotham to train as a member of the League of Assassins. Once Bruce found out what the League’s plans were for Gotham, he destroyed it. Bruce returned to Gotham after many citizens thought he was dead. Batman became a

Arthur Curry in Aquaman is different from the Aquaman characters you might be used to. I had an amazing time watching Aquaman because it showed a different type of Arthur Curry. In this new film, after the storyline of Justice League, a half Atlantean –half human named Arthur Curry gave up on the sea. He is a mess who wants to look out for his dad. Ocean Master, his brother, threatens to unite all the tribes in the sea to rage upon the surface and destroy the humans. Arthur must journey throughout the seas to find Poseidon’s trident to prove that he is worthy of the throne and stop his brother

Justice League was an amazing and a unique movie that DC brought into their new superhero series because in this new movie they introduce all the characters instead of Marvel’s format where they introduce all of the characters in their own separate movie and then make a movie where they come together, The Avengers. Justice League involves the characters from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and adds more characters including the Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. At the beginning of the movie Justice League starts with Stephen Wolf coming to Earth to obtain three mother boxes so he can bring his

The Rise of Skywalker had a tremendous battle with an amazing storyline that made the best conclusion for the Skywalker Saga. For many fans of the Skywalker franchise, it may be sad that it ends with this movie but once you watch it, it will blow your breath away. This movie was the best ending Star Wars could ever do for the Skywalker Saga. I loved this because this played back to Luke Skywalker trying to save Darth Vader. Instead in this Rey was given information about her past that changed her forever and which forced her to confront her fears of joining the dark side of the force with Kylo

Star Wars: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi are my favorite Star Wars movies of all-time. I love them because they have action, adventure, betrayal, reality, and a happy ending. I have always liked the 4-6 Star Wars movies better than any other because this was how Anakin Skywalker succumbed to the dark side of the force but his son, Luke Skywalker, tried everything to stop him. These next three movies are about Luke Skywalker's journey with the Rebellion to stop the oppressing force of the Empire and save his father.


I recommend these next three movies in the

Rogue One was an amazing movie that had action, mystery, adventure, and new knowledge towards the watchers. Rogue One is about a band of rebels who are led by Jyn Erso to obtain information to destroy a secret weapon that the Empire is building. This movie takes place between the 3rd and 4th movie of the Skywalker Saga and could be called the 3.5 Star Wars movie. It is entertaining to watch and spectacular to listen to. My favorite part about Rogue One is the difference in format Star War put in this movie. Instead of introducing this as a Star Wars movie; it is a Star Wars Story. This movie

I loved how Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced new and different characters into the main roles for the next 3 movies. The appearance of Rey, Fin (FN2187), and Kylo Ren was amazing. After the fall of the Empire, the rebels took control of the galaxy and helped its people. There were a few who still believed in the dark side of the force, the First Order, and took it upon themselves to attack the Resistance. There was a confusing point throughout the movie to whom the new Jedi was going to be. A stormtrooper, Fin, saw how the First Order treated people and left but there was also a girl

Solo begins with Han and Qi’Ra, a friend, escaping their home world. They get separated and Han goes on his mission to gain enough money to save his friend. This movie is my favorite Star Wars story and is a lot different than what you would expect from Han Solo. If you have not seen the original 4-6 Star Wars films then Hans Solo is an overconfident weasel who tries to talk his way out of debts that he gets into. It makes the movie seem funny when you see a younger version of Han Solo who is nothing like the older version. This movie is an amazing watch and I recommend it to people who love

Star Wars The Last Jedi was my favorite movie in the 7-9 Star Wars films because it was in the format of The Empire Strikes Back. After the conclusion of The Force Awakens, Rey journeys through the Galaxy to find Luke Skywalker. While Rey is on her own mission the Resistance is attacked by the First Order. I watched this movie in theaters for the first time and I had an amazing time sitting in the dark and looking at this tremendous movie. I recommend this film to people who love watching Star Wars movies and who loved The Empire Strikes Back movie. To compare this movie to any Star Wars film

The Sword and the Dagger is an epic novel set during the time of the Crusades.

However, Rashid, a Muslim assassin, is ordered to kill Elaine. In a poorly attempted assassination, Rashid is caught and thrown in the dungeons, but Elaine demands he explain why he tried to murder her. When she

Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins, is the final novel in The Hunger Games trilogy. After being rescued from the Quarter Quell, Katniss must adapt to life in District Thirteen while mourning the loss of Peeta. Katniss, forced to be the face of a revolution that she does not lead, suddenly finds herself in the middle of political chaos as the rebels of District Thirteen aim to overthrow the Capitol.


This book was great in some places but boring in others; while it was filled with twists  and turns, especially near the end, it was pretty slow in the middle. I enjoyed how Collins chose to end her

The fifth book in George R.R. Martin’s famous A Song of Ice and Fire series was just okay. This novel is essentially a repeat of the events from A Feast for Crows but from different characters’ perspectives. I was excited to revisit some of my favorite characters that I didn’t get to hear from in the last book, but they didn’t really add anything to the story. Daenerys had the most exciting scenes, in my opinion, but even she didn’t further the storyline; basically, in over 1,000 pages, nothing was accomplished. Overall, I was disappointed in this novel. After reading the previous books in the

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien is a story about friendship in the face of adversary, a story about loyalty to others, a story about destiny. Tolkien’s world building and character development is extremely well executed. Bilbo Baggins as a character works extremely well with the obstacles presented to him and the characters that he meets, allowing the reader to get engaged with the story and with Bilbo. The descriptions of the fantastical areas in this world are extremely detailed, allowing for more immersion in the story.


While the book excels in these two departments, there are some

Illuminae follows Kady Grant and Ezra Mason, two teenagers living on the planet Kerenza in the year 2575. They broke up the day before a fleet of BeiTech ships attack their planet, where they are forced into three different ships; the Alexander (where Ezra ends up), the Hypatia (where Kady ends up), and the Copernicus. The Alexander is damaged and unable to make a wormhole gate, meaning the three ships have to travel six months to the nearest jump station, the Heimdall. In close pursuit by BeiTech destroyer Lincoln, the three ships are tasked with trying to make it to the jump station before

This fantasy novel by Rick Riordan (Book 3 in The Trials of Apollo series) is a book that lifted my spirits and crushed my soul. In The Burning Maze, we go back to Meg’s roots and the “people” there help Lester (Apollo) and his friends defeat the burning maze. Lester and his friends help him get on the enemy’s ship to steal a valuable object. The most compelling aspect of this book is when we meet two old characters from Riordan’s other series.


Personally, I recommend this book to anyone who would like a good laugh and a good cry. I rate this book 5/5 stars because I can’t imagine a better

Today he is trying to find the Reckoners (those opposed to superpowers) and after a long time of research he has observed the Reckoner’s path and has sought them out.

As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From the Making of The Princess Bride​, Cary Elwes' account of the making of the iconic film, ​The Princess Bride​ warmed my heart. ​The Princess Bride​ is one of my all-time favorite stories, so knowing that the movie's cast enjoyed making the film as much as I enjoy watching it is charming. The small excerpts from other actors and directors were interesting to read as they provided different sides to the stories Elwes was retelling. Perhaps the most touching entries were about Andre the Giant; I believe he was truly the favorite of all of his castmates and

Before I say anything else, I just want to say, without qualifications, that I had a lot of fun playing this game.


I've previously talked about the first game in this series, but you're not going to be missing masses of plot if you start in with this one. There's a shared world—separated by centuries and what looks to be some continent-reshaping disasters—a similar art style, a handful of inside jokes, and a mythologized retelling of the first game's plot. Literally everything else is different.


The battle system is one of the biggest changes. Rather than throwing your creatures into
