Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe #1

Image

I have started reading the first comic book of the series, Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe. So far, I love it! It starts out with the Watcher talking directly to the reader about how he has seen worlds with good in it, and some with evil. That’s all I’m going to say for now, since I don’t want to spoil what happens later on.

For anyone who has never checked out comic books, I would highly recommend giving it a try. They are super interesting, and it gives you a new type of reading, which is super refreshing.

Is Harry Potter worth reading?

Image

The other day, my roommate and I were arguing about movies. Mostly the Harry Potter series. Her argument is that these movies are brilliant, and the books are even better. Personally I did not really enjoy the Harry Potter movies that much. The first one was not bad, but all the others didn’t really impress me. I realize that the book is usually better than the movie, but I’m not sure if I should waste my time reading the series. The storyline and some of the characters just do not interest me.

Is this book worth reading? Or will it be similar to the twilight series, where both the books and movies fell short.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

The Lord of the Rings Vs. The Hobbit

Image

There has been debates over whether J. R. R. Tolkien’s books, The Hobbit, or The Lord of the Rings, books were “better.” Personally, I think they are both brilliant books, and it really all depends what type of books you like to read.

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy are very detailed, and long books. They focus a lot of the books on small details, and it can get a bit repetitive. It has a well thought out storyline, but it takes a while to get through the details to finish it. The Hobbit is much more focused on the story, and does not repeat itself as much. It also has a variety of characters including many dwarves, and a dragon. It is more fast paced then The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and also has a good storyline.

I prefer The Hobbit book over The Lord of the Rings, because it was more to the point, and exciting. I also enjoyed the trilogy, it’s a refreshing book to read while travelling. I would highly recommend to give both a read! If you have not read either, I would suggest to read The Hobbit first, since it was written before The Lord of the Rings.

18 Books!

I realize this is the third time I’ve made a blog post about John Green, but I think what he talks about fits well with my interests! He recently posted a video on a YouTube channel he shares with his brother Hank Green, called vlogbrothers. The video is named, “18 Great Books You Probably Haven’t Read.” In the video he names of 18 books that aren’t famous or best sellers, but he thinks deserve more attention. John finds books from many different genres including fiction, sports, and comedy.

I think more people should make blog posts or videos also sharing their favourite books. I want to encourage everyone reading this to do this themselves, so we can spread books that we might not think of reading otherwise. Next week I am going to get a list together to share on this blog!

If you’d like make a blog post, or comment some of your favourite books that you think everyone should read!
