Book Review: Everything, Everything

18692431

If you’re into YA contemporary fiction, this book might have one or two things you’ll like and one or two things you don’t. If I were to list the things it’s about, here’s what I’d come up with:

  • A romance with the boy next door.
  • A relationship between a girl and her mom.
  • An illness keeping our protagonist from leaving her house.

Deadpool

Mild spoilers. Nothing serious.

I have been looking forward to this film for a long time (though not as long as Ryan Reynolds has).

I love Deadpool. He was my introduction to comic books and he’s just awesome. His humour, creativity, mercenary skills, R-rating, general quirkiness, and deep seated self-hatred all come together to create the perfect Mary Sue for everyone to love. Any shortcomings are overlooked because he can, has, and will break the fourth wall, making him interesting on a whole other level. He’s like Batman but with less money and more personality.

The Big Short

Disclaimer: The movie I just saw had a lot of swearing in it, so you can rest assured this post will, too.

How To Make Winning Feel Bad – an alternate film title.

Well I’m scared to shit.

I’m twenty-one years old. I still haven’t completed my university degree. My subject of study is freakin’ Creative Writing. I know fuck-all about Wall Street. So keep that in mind when reading what I’m about to say about The Big Short.
