Now a Major Motion Picture Reviews
I'm so conflicted about this one, my bookish friends.
It had so many moments that I was dying/loving. But then there was so many moments that I just stared at the book, moved it slightly to the side, and side-eyed it.
I originally thought that Cori McCarthy jumped into my head like Osmosis Jones and somehow slithered down to my bookish heart and soul because this book is so me it hurts? Not only does it have two of my favorite Bastille songs in the after book playlist, it's one giant ode to Flore ...more
Iris was raised to resent her grandmother's world famous Elementia books, and her ire for the series deepened after a rabid fan crossed the line. Out of obligation though, Iris agreed to accompany her little brother to the set of the film adaptation. What she thought would be a most miserable trip, turned out to be quite life changing.
From the cover and synopsis, I thought this book would be cute and fun, but it surprisingly had a lot of depth and tugged at my heartstrings.

Figured I can write a longer review now that I'm done with my history exam, so here we go.
•Behind-the-scenes movie stuff is my FAVORITE. I've watched all of the stuff for Lord of the Rings and can probably still recite weird trivia for a lot of other movies, so it was great to see a book about it.

I adore this book. - Rea
i didn't have high expectations for this based on the cover and the back and the first chapter, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I just really, really loved this.
DNF at 30 percent. I REALLY wanted to like this book because it sounded like it was up my alley... it was set in Ireland, and it was about a movie being taken place there. I just started losing interest within 30 percent. It's not a bad book, I just missed the connection.
I kind of feel like this book was meant for me. Except for the part where the main character hates fantasy fandoms. I don't know if this book is for everyone but if you like love stories, strong female characters, and fantasy fandoms then this should probably be on your to-read pile. Yup, I added another one. I love you, too.
