Main Characters

I was just explaining to someone how I really like Sailor Moon the series, but I can’t actually stand Sailor Moon herself. I like literally every other aspect, except for whole Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Moon are “fated” to be together, so he dumps Sailor Mars. It was like “Oh, well can’t stop this now, can I?”…YES YOU CAN!

Do you have any shows or characters like that? You love the rest of the entire show, but you really dislike one of the main characters?

Take 2!

I have decided to do a bit of a different review this time. I am kind of doing two at the same time, just not necessarily a whole review of each book.

I want to review and compare between the two. Both the books that I’ve read over the last month or so, are the second books in a series. I thought it’d be interesting to see how I felt they were the same, different etc.

*Now I’ll just also say that I am not doing any spoilers either*.

I decided because I was reading two of the most Young Adults series writers. I would compare what I thought of the two.

Now I just want to say that I am enjoying both of the novels…This is just a comparison, mainly on my observations.

Main Characters:

Similar: Both books have a young female as their lead characters…(Yay, Female empowerment). It’s actually part of the reasons that I wanted to compare the two really. They are both very similar but the writing is very different. Both female leads have a male love interest that pretty much throughout the end of the first book and the start of the second books, there has been some sort of quarrel. Which means at the beginning of both books the two love interests are not together, but there is tension as the books goes along.

Difference: In Endless Knight the two main love interests get back together rather early again. There was some serious miscommunication between the two. In the end though they ended up getting together. Also Endless Knight is not nearly as long as Lord of Shadows.

Lord of Shadows is a little different, at the end of the first book it seemed like they were going to get together, but then realised that they could not. Which means during the second book (I have not read all of it at this stage, but I there’s isn’t much story left for a romance). It doesn’t seem like they will get back together at this particular stage/book.

Conclusion: It makes you want to keep reading Lord of Shadows, because the two characters are going through so much. Including denying being together, the forbidden! Although the love interests between the two in Endless Knights makes me want them to get back together. I felt like they got back together really quickly considering there is a lot going on. However, I do understand it because of  what happens at the end of the book. If Endless Knight was a longer book, they probably would have gotten together later. It just felt more “Oh I don’t hate” “I don’t hate you either” “Let’s get together”. It felt a little rushed.

Theme/Plot

Similar: Both books take place in a “modern” type era, but these young women have discovered in the first book that there is some kind of magic land hiding. Both women end up being some kind of “Prodigy”, one-of-a-kind, destiny fulfilling…You get where I’m going with this…

Both of their parents are dead, usually killed by the monsters that they are now hunting. That’s how they discovered their new magical world. They both have another male “interest”. Which you get the feeling that if something happens to the other male love interest, the girls will be fine. Which kind of puts a damper on the whole “soul mate” bit. With one of Cassandra Clare’s series, this actually really annoyed me.

Difference: Endless Knight it’s a lot more straightforward (which probably explains when it’s a lot shorter book). Whereas with Lord of Shadows there is a lot more explanation and description of the battles and the places in the world. You get to know the minor characters a lot more.

Conclusion: Although the theme and killing monsters to get to the big boss type monster is pretty much the same. There is just a lot more description in Lord of Shadows compared to Endless Knight. In Endless Knight they don’t give much of a description, in fact I couldn’t really tell you what the monsters look like. However, in Lord of Shadow, as the go from character to character you get a little description (that’s interesting and pivotal to the story). I could more describe the characters/monsters in LoS.

Other Characters:

Similar: Both books have a group of other characters in the story that help defeat and travel through the book. Both books have characters where the main female lead relies heavily on another male character that makes the main male lead believe that she’s in love with the other guy.

Difference: The other difference is in Lord of Shadow, the other characters are mainly family. Whereas in Endless Knights the other characters are brought together more by Fate. Which means that main male lead in LoS believes the main female lead is in love with his brother!

Conculsion: It definitely does make it more suspenseful between the two brothers and the female lead in LoS. The main male lead is really upset but because it’s his brother, he feels like he can’t be upset. As well he’s not “legally” allowed to be with the female lead anyway. Endless Knight means that there’s just less emotions involved. One of the other female characters clearly has a crush on the male lead, but you don’t feel as sympathetic as you do with with LoS. Also the relationship between one the main female lead and “Death” in Endless Knight felt so forced to ymself.

Powers:

I have to say that the powers although both books/series do use Magic throughout the books as the main powers in each series. The way they use the Magic is totally different. Endless Knights is based more on more Tarot Cards, hence the series being “The Arcana Chronicles”. Whereas LoS is more based on using runes to heal and make their Weapons specific to them with more magic.

 Reviews

Which one are you?

Just watching “My Little Pony” as one grown adult does.

It occurred to me that when you don’t know me very well I am very much Flutter-shy…Those who know me well though say I’m more like Pinkie Pie.

My question today is if you could take two completely different characters from a book or a tv show, to represent your “me vs me” traits…Which two would they be and why?

This or That? #39

this-or-that

This or That #39

Oh my Goodness! I completely love this weeks, this or that!

Would you rather…

Spend 24 hours in a fictional world

OR

Spend 24 hours with a fictional character

I have dreamt of both to these situation, it would be too embarrassing to admit, being an “adult”, how many times I have dreamt of both of these situations happening…Many…many…MANY times!

SO WHICH ONE DO I CHOOSE?!

I am going to have to go with spending 24 hours with a fictional character. The only problem I would have is, who do I spend the 24 hours with when it comes to my lifelong fictional crushes.

Legolas, Thorin, Judah Bow?! Who! Who do I chose?!

I’d probably have to go with Thorin…It might come as shock to some as I have been in love with Orlando Bloom since LotR, but he never was my favourite character in the movies. My favourite character in the movie was actually Pippen aka Billy Boyd. Whereas Thorin was my favourite character and to be honest I actually Legolas better in The Hobbit rather than the Lord of the Ring. I’d probably end up not being able to say anything to Thorin, but I don’t mind mooning over him, with a little exploring,lol

Dreaming of you

I was honestly so inspired by a post posted by the awesomely amazing The Wild Readers and there recent posting of https://thewildreaders.wordpress.com/2016/03/04/discussion-br%E2%99%A5mance/. I was inspired because when I started to think about and thought about two of my favourite “bromance” type relationships. I started to think about who I would love to play those characters in a movie. Please feel free to comment below on who would play your fantasy characters and why!

The two that I started with was Colin Morgan (Merlin) and Toby Regbo (Francis/Reign) playing Jem and Will from “The Infernal Devices” book series by Cassandra Clare.

It’s not even so much that they look like the parts, but the characters that they have played previously are very similar to Will and Jem.

 

I have also always wanted to watch Tom Hiddleston (Loki) play a Mr Darcy type character or even Dorian Gray! I believe that Tom Hiddleston has played “Mr Darcy” type adaptation, but I want to see him play the real character. I cannot wait to watch Tom Hiddleston in his new series “The Night Managerr” it also has Hugh Laurie in it.

Also my dream has actually come true as well when we are talking about Emma Watson playing in the upcoming live action film version of Beauty and the Beast (IMDB 2017) Every time they make an announcement on another casting I am overjoyed.

So I believe that I’ve embarrassed myself enough…Let’s share!

Fuller House

Over the weekend I was trying to help myself get over a “SundayFundayHangover” and my partner and I suddenly remembered that “Netflix” is now playing the full season of Fuller House. So we decided to give it a go.

First of all I’ll just start this review off by saying that we ended up playing the whole season in one go, so to me, that’s always a good sign and especially since we were laughing through the episodes was a good sign as well. The only downside that I could see with the new show is that I am worried for the show relying too much on making references from the past show. Even trying to make some of the regular reoccurring new characters like the old regular reoccurring characters.

Apart from that it’s actually a really good show. If this didn’t have the original tv show it would still actually work as a standalone show (they’d have to take out the flashback references though).

I just felt like I had to write this because I’ve been reading a lot of the reviews and they all sound bad. Except that most people seem to have never seen the original and somehow expected to just “get” the new show. The others seemed to have watched the original but they expected it to be the same. It’s not a Shakespeare play, it’s a cheesy comedy.

Sims 4 Update!

One of my most popular Blogs has apparently been the Blog about my Sims 4, which is quiet entertaining to me. I love playing it and my characters has been “developing”. So I thought that I give little random updates about the characters I’m playing all the time.

01-17-15_12-31 PM-2 01-17-15_12-33 PM

These two characters are Arwen Oakenshield and Aragorn Bloom and they are both now teenagers, dating, in a relationships and have recently swapped promise rings. It is SO cute! I am loving playing this game, I am probably going to buy some kind of extension game. I’m to busy though at the moment to really consider that…Watch this space for more though!…

 

Sims 4!

In case you hadn’t realised I am a bit of a “Geek”…a nice one of course, not all “Oh so you only play PC games, well you suck!”…I love all the games, including the ones that I can’t even play.  There is one game though that I just LOVE to play, I have been obsessed with it ever since the very first version of it came out (2000!) The Sims!

I love creating the characters, creating their lives and creating their relationships. The Sims 4 is even better than the others! The creation of the your character just surpasses all the other Sims games. I know that it is a coincidence, but one of the outfits for the characters I actually have in real life!

At the moment I have just received an achievement for playing the Sims 4 for 5 hours and I’ve only had it the one day…Shocking, I know! I thought that maybe it was time to get off the PC and came back on the PC to write about this game that I just love and is very magical to me. At the moment I have created a character after myself (of course) Orlando Bloom and Thorin Oakenshield.
