So, we have been out of school for nearly a month for those of us who actually still are in school, and apparently July is National Anti-Boredom Month. I am usually bored within a couple of days, so July, you need to come up with a way to keep my interest.
Hope everyone had an awesome day with their best friends today on National Best Friends Day. I know I did. The Internet and I have just always gotten along, and it is always there for me, except for when there is no Wi-Fi.
And for those who didn’t get it, five-ever is longer than forever (and yes I know my jokes suck).
June is the month for those who love food. For those who love sugar, it’s Candy Month. For those like me that cannot put the cheese down, it’s Dairy Month. And for those who are trying to get healthy in the food department, it’s National Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month.
As many of you may know, the last book that I read was The Book Thief, and I have recently watched the movie. I tried my best not to let my feelings about the book sway my feelings about the movie, but it was hard considering how terrible the book was. If you want by take on the book, click here. But now on to the movie (and there will be some spoilers).
Is everyone ready to celebrate National Salad Month? Probably not, but lucky for you meat eats out there it is also National Barbecue Month. Also, take your best pictures for National Photograph Month. And be honest. How many of those pictures are selfies? We are all guilty of it.
I recently had the pleasure of reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Please hear all of the sarcasm that the precious statement had. Please do. I think this is that worst book that takes place during the Holocaust and World War II that I have read ever. Ever! I know that it won a whole bunch of awards, but I question why. Since this book is well-loved by so many people, and I have an adverse reaction to it, this review will have spoilers. Stop reading now if you don’t want any.
Recently, I finished reading the classic Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, and it was just as interesting as the first time I read it. From the movies, it always felt that the monster was the monster. After reading it, you realize that that is not the case. The scientist, Victor Frankenstein, is the real monster. The monster, who I have started to called Adam after he read Paradise Lost, is only a monster based on how the others in the Victorian society saw him as. A blind man became Adam’s best friend because he saw who Adam really was instead of the composition of corpses that everyone else saw him as. I, personally would recommend this work, although I do know those who do not like this book. It is that type of book. Either you like it or you don’t.
If you have read this book, tell me what you think. Also, leave book suggestions for me in the comments or scream it at me via Twitter. My handle is @RayaIBoyd. I would love to know what you think.
