Movie Talk- The Grand Budapest Hotel




Movies and books are wonderful, as they transport you into a whole other world. You get to see it or you get to imagine your own images with the help of words written by another. I love and enjoy that, especially when watching The Grand Budapest Hotel, a crime and drama movie. No spoilers!

Overall Thoughts- Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children

In this post I am reviewing Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children as a series. It was hard for me to write about them separately especially when it comes to the last book... Mainly because it held the same amazing elements as the first two books. The thought behind this post is to summarize my thoughts.

The Others

photo source: imbd.com

The Others is a 2001 Spanish-American supernatural gothic horror film with elements of a psychological horror film. It's about a religious woman (Nicole Kidman) with two sunlight-sensitive children believes ghosts inhabit her darkened island mansion (-wiki). AND IT'S A MOVIE THAT YOU MUST WATCH (without reading the plot)! You have to go into it completely blind!

I'm thanking my dear mother who told me about this film!

The 'Lost In A Book' Tag


Welcome back to my blog loves!
My previous "new header" looked a bit messy so I changed it again. There are literally NO fonts that make "jaseyjade" look pretty other than this one and the one Noor made for me ( which was super pretty but the color didn't quite fit). Yes, call me the header changer! So here's to sticking to this one.

Today I am going to do the "Lost In A Book" tag because it's a super fun tag and I love books! Here we go,
