I LOVE this book. There, I've said it. This book is fantastic!
I have read all of the Mortal Instruments series, so I am already in love with the Shadowhunter world. This book only added to that love.
I love that this series is set in England. It's nice to see the Shadowhunters in my country. The narrative from Tessa is great. It allows a magnificent incite into her brain as she copes with all the new surroundings, information and Shadowhunter way of life which is completely different from the Mundane world in the 19th century.
I was so happy that Magnus played a more prominent role in this book as he is my favourite character from The Mortal Instruments series. But, my heart went out to Will once the truth about his past was revealed. The constant battle against Mortmain however is frustrating and creates a tonne of sympathy for the characters as the problems don't ever seem to end. Hopefully all will be resolved in the final book.
Despite this, there were many unexpected events like the engagement of one couple (who I won't name due to spoilers) which was a lovely surprise.
The arrival of a certain character at the end (the cliff-hanger) was shocking and left me wanting to read more. Luckily as I own the series I have been able to start the next book straight away.
I have watched the original Poltergeist so I was hoping this wasn't going to be a pointless, rubbish remake. Luckily, it wasn't. It was an amazing remake.
The cast were fabulous- they perfectly displayed their characters' personality and role in the story line without being cheesy at all. I enjoyed the added element of being able to see inside the other dimension where the poltergeists are, using modern technology. It added a new depth to the movie that the original didn't have. Also, the CGI effects were fantastic. The spirits looked amazingly scary.
The plot was almost exactly the same as the original which meant the new twists were 100% unexpected thus making the film a good remake where you didn't already know everything that was going to happen. The ending was good, it made me chuckle which was good as previous scenes made me think a happy ending was going to be unlikely. Overall this was a fantastic film, I would highly recommend it.

I was super excited for this film. The trailer made it seem like a great horror movie that was going to be a twist on the fairy-tale Hansel and Gretel. It wasn't.
It was an awful film, probably one of the worst films I've ever seen. Although the two young actors were very good, the plot was pants. It was silly, odd and lacking it horror. The movie started off with tonnes of potential but it was wasted. It had a few minor jumps but nothing too scary like the trailer suggested, instead they were so predictable they had no effect.
In the trailer the grandma is shown making her granddaughter climb into an oven. This gave me the hope it was going to be fast paced however having seen the movie this scene was pointless other than to show the audience the grandmother was odd. It didn't give me as the viewer that fear for the character that is usually created in a good horror film.
I watched the film until the end but even that was a disappointment. It was gross and boring. To be honest, I was glad when it finally ended. The film makers could have done so much more with this movie. I would not recommend it to anyone.

I will admit it. I hate football. I don't understand the game or why the players earn so much. However on the 30th January, I went to my first ever professional football match.
I volunteered to go as my dad had a spare ticket. I thought it would be good experience and nice to spend time with my dad. I'm honestly not sure what I expected.
The pitch looked smaller in real life than on the TV screen which I thought was odd, though that could have just been down to where I was sitting. I didn't understand most of the rules but it was easy to see that the opposition dived a few times. It was shocking to see how many times the players headed the ball in the match. I had always thought headers didn't happen often. It was a good match and I surprised myself by not hating it. I quite enjoyed it and even found myself getting annoyed when the opposition took possession of the ball. It was a shame we didn't win but I did get to see our team score a goal.
Overall it was an amazing atmosphere. It was very busy and loud due to the amount of fans there. I enjoyed the chants; many of which made me laugh. I still don't understand why football players get paid so much but somethings will never change.
I enjoyed the experience and you never know, I might go again one day.
