A New Favourtie Author.

Hello everyone well here I am again with another blog post. Hopefully I can keep this up a bit. :)
Last year I was bored. I didn't have any new and interesting books to read. Sure, we have tons of books but I didn't really fancy any of them at the time. So my Mummy being the amazing Mum that she is asked on Facebook if any of her friends had some good book recommendations for me. I got quite a few, let me tell you, which was awesome.

But one lady mentioned an author called Georgette Heyer who wrote historical romance novels and that didn't have anything in them that I would need to skip!
To date I have read two of her novels and am reading happily through another. These have been: The Corinthian, Bauvallet, and now, The Black Moth.

I read the Corithian first of all. This is the synopis because I could't remember the storyline that well:
'Sir Richard Wyndham, an accomplished Corinthian, is being forced into marriage by his family, who want him to have an heir. Depressed by the life laid out before him, he nevertheless agrees to this course. The night before he is to announce his choice he comes across Penelope Creed, a young girl in boys' clothes, hanging helplessly from an upper story window. She is a very wealthy orphan who is running away from her own distasteful marriage plans. The two become allies, leave London in search of Miss Creed's childhood sweetheart, and find themselves in the middle of a dangerous game of mystery, theft, and murder.'

I remember that I was sick when I read it and so read most of it in about a day. I really enjoyed and Sir Richard made me smile and maybe even laugh as well, he was so clever. This was a regency time period novel but Georgetter Heyer also does other time periods, but not to the same extent. One of these is Beauvallet


Beauvallet was the Georgette Heyer book I had drooled over and waited and waited to eventually come to my library. Did I mention the library actually has a vast collection of Georgette Heyer books? I was delighted indeed when I found out. :)
Anyway so I finally just put a hold on it and read it. Okay, and yeah I'm being really slack and putting in another synopsis which is not my own.: 'What happens when a pirate falls in love with his captive? During her return to Spain with her father, the lovely Dona Dominica de Rada y Sylva is horrified when their ship is set upon by pirates. Far worse is her discovery that their captor isn't just any pirate -- he is the notorious Sir Nicholas Beauvallet, an Englishman with a scandalous reputation for plundering Spanish ships. But Dominica's pride braces her determination to be no one's hostage . . . It should have been easy for Sir Nicholas. It was, after all, just another ship. But instead, Sir Nicholas finds himself captivated by Dominica's dark beauty and indomitable courage. After returning his captives to their homeland, Sir Nicholas vows to win the heart of the Spanish beauty. It could be his riskiest venture yet -- and one that promises a treasure greater than any other . . .'

I really enjoyed Beauvallet and I hated Don Domingo so much! Nick Beauvallet was awesome and though I came to enjoy Dominica she also irritated me a bit. The parts in Spain were really good and fast-paced. But I did find it a bit difficult to read because it talks about the Inquisition and the portrayal though not terrible still irritated me. Joshua was so funny, too!
And that leaves: The Black Moth.
2626949

'Disguised as a highwayman, Jack Carstares, the wrongly disgraced Earl of Wyncham, found himself again face-to-face with the wicked Duke of Andover. This time, the Black Moth was attempting to abduct dark-haired beauty Diana Beauleigh. Once more Jack's noble impulse to save the day landed him in trouble, but not before sending the villainous duke scurrying. Diana took her gallant rescuer in and nursed his wounds, and soon truer emotions grew between them. But Jack couldn't stay, for an lady and an outlaw would make a scandalous pair. Torn between his tarnished past and the hope for Diana's hand, Jack had one dangerous chance to redeem his honor--by defeating the Black Moth for good!'
Ahh! Spoilers! I'm not that far into it you see. I hate Lady Lavinia and I love Jack so far and Richard needs to grow a bit of a spine! Hopefully it will continue to be an excellent book.


So there you have it, three books from one author and oodles more of her books which I want to read! :) Some more than others. :)

God Bless

Lent....



When we talk about Lent we think 'argh it's that stupid liturgical season when I have to do acts of charity and fast and give up stuff.' But is that the attitude we should have? Not at all. Lent is a wondrous season. What? How can it be a wondrous season you may ask. It's miserable you might say. The honest answer is that it's about perspective.

What is the point of lent and how can we best use the forty days before the Triduum to our best advantage? The point of lent is to draw closer to our Lord. To give up or abstain from things that we might find distracting or time-wasters, or to take on NEW things. Like prayer or doing something extra for someone you struggle to get along with. Perhaps we can read a book which will be spiritually enriching for us. The point is that by Maundy Thursday evening, when we being the Triduum we will be able to say to our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament "Here Lord, this is what I have done for you to show I love you." And not matter how small a thing it may seem to us, it means so much more to him. And what we may find is that on that Thursday we feel that we truly have done something great and that we have drawn closer and had a better glimpse of what the Paschal mystery is.


I actually find Lent to be more enriching for me than Advent. The reasons behind this are:
1. Advent goes for four weeks whereas Lent goes for about six.
2. Lent is always at the start of the year and I'm ready and hyped to begin new stuff, it's also the start of school so it makes it more organised.
3. Advent in Australia is also our harvest whereas Lent starts anywhere from late summer to mid autumn.
4. I am always running around in Advent trying to get things like Christmas presents and stuff like that ready.
5. I am also organising last catch-ups with people before Christmas and this though good can also be a distraction.

So Lent for me makes a more focused and helpful season for me.

There was something I saw on Facebook the other day. Someone had written something like: "Don't give up chocolate or say you will give clothes to charity. Instead do something that will help make you into the saint that God wants you to be.

Lent can be a challenge but in a good way. Lent is a wonderful and beautiful time in which we can grow in holiness and love of our neighbour but we have to be willing to go the extra distance.
Lent is also about having a fresh start to our spiritual lives.

I pray that you all will have a happy, holy, and wondrously-enriching Lent!


God Bless,

On Love...

...let the little children come unto Me.♥

Sometimes I find it depressing going out to town to shop and things. It might sound strange but I do.
Why do I though? Why would I? Because I look at people while I'm out.

 An old couple taking their grandchildren shopping because there parents are working or too busy to look after them. A person who looks like the world is going to end or like they don't have a purpose in life.
 Just the other day when I was out shopping a young family was shopping for clothes in K-Mart. They were a sad family. Not because they themselves seemed down in the dumps, exactly. But because they didn't seem to actually BE happy. The mother swore at one of her children and then said to that child they weren't having lunch and she then proceeded to tell her husband that she was done and she just wanted to go. The children were tired. The little boy was hungry. Sure sometimes kids are naughty in shops. But this is usually because they are hungry or tired or just plain bored.
I felt emotionally sorry for the children and for the parents.
A little while later we went to a different part of the shop and from there you are very near the check-out. This same family was at the check-out and the little boy was hanging off the side of it. I think he was still saying he was hungry. They paid for their things and left. A little while later a little boy in K-Mart was calling for his Dad who he had seemed to have lost in the shop. A K-Mart person was noted and I hope they found his father for him.


These two most encounters made me so sad. I forgot about it but then was reminded of them again, later when we were at Aldi's. There was a mother and her twelve or so year old boys. She was looking at something and one of the boys was trying to touch whatever she had. She told them in an irritated voice to stop that. However, when one of the boys said. "We're just trying to help." Her reply was "I know but you aren't really." It was the way she said it!!! She said it with gentleness and kindness. How a mother SHOULD talk to her children. I had been rather unhappy earlier hearing the other family in K-Mart but this exchange lifted my spirits a lot. Can you guess what the difference was?

It was love. Love is the most powerful and wonderful thing in the universe. Maybe that first mother hadn't been shown any love or proper substantial kindness in her life, maybe she was only doing as she had been taught growing up. If so it was a very poor upbringing.

Food for thought. 
In today's society we will find many people who are selfish or are very-short tempered. Even to their own children. This is NOT how children should be treated. I don't know about you, but I've always wanted to adopt all of the unloved children in the world. It might sound like a totally absurd and strange thing to think but the truth is that a lot of people aren't loved at all in their lives. And that is a tragedy. Children deserve love and kindness. If they don't have them growing up, they won't be able to show this as adults.

So to all those people who look after children, who talk to the children with love. I thank you. Love is a free gift yet for some, it's seem like the most expensive and hard to give gift in the world. NEVER FORGET TO LOVE!!!

What I listen to......


I've always been a big fan of listening to things. Audio-books, music, anything really.
Since getting an I-Pod Touch for my birthday which I named Mr Reese (Person of Interest) and the case that I have for it is Sherlock, I've been enjoying being able to listen to a lot of stuff, without having to ask Mum if I could use her I-Pod.
One of the coolest things about having my own I-Pod is that I can get podcasts! It's really exciting. And one of the stations I've been listening to a fair bit this past six months or so, is a Catholic Radio Station called 'Catholic Answers Live' 
This was first found by my brother Saxon who began to download some of them and I started to listen to them.
Catholic Answers is an amazing radio show with an awesome website which I have not really looked at that much, but has thousands of articles on varying issues. Their talks are excellent and top notch and they broadcast every day except Sunday which is awesome. I love checking my I-Pod in the morning to see what interesting Podcasts have been added. :D
Their slogan is to 'Defend and explain the Faith'.
They do many different broadcasts. The thing is though, that they have different people from different backgrounds ring them up and ask questions they are always respectful and kind and try to do their best to help the caller. I've learnt a lot from listening to them. I've enjoyed learning more about my faith, and also to be more respectful towards people of different religious backgrounds. Yes, I'm proud to be Catholic, but that means that sometimes I'm a little full of myself and can be rather judgmental of other people. It's a very big failing of mine. :(
Some of the podcasts I skip and some I listen to. It really depends on what I'm interested in listening to. Some of my favourites are the Street Evangelisation broadcasts as they are really interesting.
I even have favourite apologists. Tim Staples is a definite favourite as is Brant Pitre. Trent Horn is becoming a favourite, too. At least some of his :)
Catholic Answers' radio has been going for as long as I've been on this good earth. They've done an excellent job of facing various issues with both compassion, respectfulness, and the solid truths of the Catholic Faith.
I think that a lot of the time people who aren't Catholic hear a lot of misconceptions about Catholics. That's why Catholic Answers is such a great website, it's there for anyone. Catholic, Protestant and non-Christains alike. If you ever had any query about the Catholic Faith I would most strongly advise you to pop over to the website and type in what you are confused about. They have anything and everything on there.
Catholic Answers makes me proud to be a Catholic though in a proud glad kind of way, I love listening to people who actually know what they are talking about and who know that really the Catholic Church is an amazing thing. So pop on over to their website. You have no idea what you'll be missing out on! :D
Thanks be to God for Catholic Answers!

Let's Talk About Some Glass Slippers....


Hi everyone. How have you all been? Today I am finally getting around to reviewing Disney's live-action version of Cinderella. I am so glad I got to see it at the movies! :D
Scroll down to the end if you don't want spoilers.

So where do I begin? I really really wanted to see this at the movies. Seriously I watched the trailer about a million times and got really hyped because of it. But I wanted to wait for Autumn and Eden to come home from college to watch it with them. Also, it was getting close to the end of lent.
Anyway, as it turned out, we all ended up going to see it! Including Mummy and Daddy and Braedon and Anna-Lisa and Balian! His first movie at the movies I think. :D
It was so much fun!

Okay, just so everyone knows, I think that Cinderella is way better than the new adaptation of both Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. Both of those are a lot darker and I enjoyed Cinderella's story and characters much more. Because of how both Snow White and Maleficent had been so different from their originals I had also expected Cinderella to be so. So I was a little disappointed in that area. But honestly guys, it was also such a great movie!

It follows the animated Disney very closely but also it added other things in like Ella's mother (who was awesome!) and lots of Kit hem Prince Charming!


'Have courage and be kind' This was such a wonderful quote from Ella's mother and also something that can be used in the every day. And Ella truly does live it. She was a warm-hearted, loving character. Even though the mice in the movie didn't actually talk I loved it how she set them up a table for them to eat on. She was very courageous, always remembering what her Mother told her. I was actually a little surprised when her fairy Godmother showed up and she said that there was no such thing, or something along those lines! After all her mother talked to her about all of that before she died, and I thought that she believed that too. 
 She had some beautiful clothes. I mean I would honestly love to own all of her dresses. Even her every day one! Although I didn't her original dress for the ball. Her ball dress was fantastic!!! But I think that out of them all I loved her wedding dress the best. I know it sounds weird, right?  
I really liked it how she was miffed at Kit when she worked out that he was actually the Prince. Because he HAD told her the truth. :P The part where they went to the garden and there was the swing was lovely! And then when she is found at almost at the end, singing up in her attic, that was nice, too.

Kit was my favourite character. He was a strong character and it was really awesome how he actually respected his father. And he talked! Prince Charming talks? Never! I loved it how he used Ella's words when he is speaking to the Grand Duke. 'Just because it's done doesn't mean it's what should be done.' And then he does this little grin thing. :D I think that my favourite bit with Kit was when his father was dying, and you see that deep down inside he really is just a boy compared to his father, and he just lies down beside his father as he is dying. That honestly I have to say, was very emotional for me, :) It was my favourite bit out of the entire movie. :) I also enjoyed how he became the King because usually, in fairy tales, he's only a Prince. Being King seemed really something more mature and I liked that. Oh! And he totally liked Ella from the moment he met her. Just saying! 
I was really glad that he didn't actually stay behind at the castle when the Grand Duke went about on his quest with the glass slipper. I asked my six-year-old sister Arwen what her favourite bit was and she said. 'When he was disguised!' I liked that he went out and found Ella himself. Kit was awesome. I had expected more of him, but I must say that he did do a very good job anyway. :)

It doesn't exactly say carriage...

The Fairy Godmother was funny! The day after we went and saw it Rogan and Autumn were making me laugh saying. 'I'm your Hairy Dogfather.' Although to be truthful, Rogan was laughing about it first and he made me laugh, too. That line was pretty funny! If I had to use only a few words to describe the fairy Godmother I would use 'eccentric' and 'kind' because she was both in bucketfuls! She also was very amusing. It was nice how she still kept Ella's original dress, but put her own twist on it. And her dialogue when finding to find something that really said 'carriage' was also quite funny.

Madam will do! 
I suppose I should also mention the Stepmother. She was a good bad guy, but I do think that she could have been a little bit better. I think I was expecting a bit more of a back-story as to why she was like how she was. That probably would not have worked, however, because the focus would have been taken off Ella and her story. She was funny though, with how she basically forced two gentleman to dance with her daughters. And how she was mouthing at them from across the dance floor to 'project'. 

The stepsisters. I honestly didn't think that much more their performance. They were there because they were part of the story, but I didn't think they were fantastic.


Negativities: Okay so I'm just going to spell out a few things I would have liked better/wished they would have done. 
1. Had a bit more on Kit. I know the story is about Ella but anyway. :P
2. A litte more of a back story on the stepmother
3. Perhaps a little bit more different from the scource material.

I just don't want anyone to think that I thought this was the best movie ever, but neither do I want it to sound like I didn't like it at all. I want to be as honest as possible. :)

So to end this post: I really enjoyed Cinderella. It was a visually stunning movie, with great effects (like the lizards and goose) good characters and I'm sure I will like it even more when I watch it again. True, it did leave me wanting a little more in the story, just a bit, but it was really good! 
Well done Disney!!! 

God Bless

Little Letters....Maze-Runner Style.


NOTE: Do not read if you want spoilers. Because you don't.


Dear Thomas....Thank you for being such an awesome, relatable character. You stand up for what you believe in, you're kind and forgive even though the person might have done something like kill one of your best friends. You know it wasn't his fault.You are my second favourite after all. Thank you.

Dear Teresa......I don't understand you that much at all, to be honest. I think I liked you best in the first book. After that I began to feel a little like Thomas, resentful towards you. What you did however in the end showed that no matter how strange a character you might have seemed, you still possessed the knack to be a hero.

Dear Minho...seriously you made me laugh sometimes! Your sarcastic snarky comments would probably in real life make me find you more than a little irritating. You are a product of your background, and being stuck in the Glade for an extended period of time certainly can make you like that. Thanks for sticking up for Thomas. Oh! And what you did to Jorge in Scorch Trials? I totally loved that. :D

Dear Brenda.....I liked you a lot. Thank you for not disappointing me in book three when I was confused about your intentions. Your relationship with Jorge I really enjoyed also. Oh, and Thomas totally deserved you. :)

Dear Chuck.....Oh my gosh, Chuck, you are so adorable!!! Thank you for being there when Thomas didn't seem to have any friends whatsoever. Thank you for helping him along, and being his friend. Thank you for being just so adorable and cute, even when you're trying to act tough. Thanks for playing that trick on Gally.

Dear Newt....Okay,,,,,I'm already feeling a little melancholy. Seriously Newt, you are my all-time favourite out of the entire trilogy. I loved it how you were the only one who called Thomas 'Tommy'. Though pretty much every sentence you said I had to edit out a word as I went along, I still loved you. I loved the fact that you were the glue, it made so much sense. I loved it how you, Thomas and Minho were together at the start of book three taking a stand, you guys had me laughing. :) I really hate the Flare just in case you were wondering! I guess I should have seen the signs, you're my favourite character, your're blonde, and that usually means for guy characters that I like, that you die. You did not disappoint on that score.

Dear Aris, as a secondary character I liked you, but then you teamed up with Teresa and I didn't like you that much. It would have been nice if there had been more of you in book three.

Dear Gally...Honestly in the first book I didn't like you one little bit, but when we met you again in the third book and when you decided to go with Thomas and save the other Immunes I liked you a lot more. You aren't by far a favorite of mine, but I'm glad you ended up on the good side.

To Ava Paige...At the end I liked you. Still the end does not justify the means.

To Rat Man....I hate you. 'Nuff said.

As you can see I've just finished reading the Maze-Runner trilogy. They were really good books! I enjoyed them, although I did find them a bit depressing. If you've seen the movie, read the books! As always the books are better, I hope you'll agree. :)


God Bless

"That icky-sticky stuff is only fit for Heffalumps and Woosels"

Bluch!
Okay. No it's not but it certainly deserves a big fat overrated label on it! Do you want to know what I'm talking ranting about. I'll tell you:
PEANUT BUTTER!!!!
Honestly guys, I just don't get it! It's a spread that's SUPPOSE to go on wait for it BREAD! Why is it when I search on Google for things like cheesecake, or anything sweet they always have a recipe that contains peanut butter. Why would you want to have that?! It's not sweet!
Now, assuming your American and totally love Peanut Butter you may be asking the question. "What is she going on about? Peanut butter is amazing!" Okay, Yeah I know. But let's search for a minute....................................................................................................................
Wha?????????
See what I mean?
But wait there's more:


And more


So you get the picture, right. I don't understand how you could put peanut butter in things like cheesecakes, cookies, cupcakes and all those sweet kinds of things.
Yes, I know that there are a ton of recipes that DON'T have peanut butter in them, but I'm just having a bit of fun ranting about this. :)
Don't get me wrong, I love to have peanut butter. Just not in sweet stuff. On bread. :P To some people that must sound really strange, but it's true. In fact, I wonder if my peanut butter is different to what you guys have.............I have no idea honestly.
I made a caramel slice a while back and it said to use quite a large amount of peanut butter. Then it was sort of like this:

Hhhm. Yeah, so I didn't like it at all.

NOOOOOOOO Don't ruin the oreos! 
Anyway, that's pretty much all I'm going to say on the subject. It was fun to do this blog post. :) I'm sorry if there are any typos or accidental bad spelling. I haven't really checked that. :)
God Bless

My many identities..........

Now, if you know me in real life you might be surprised at some of the nicknames I have, some have been around for ages, others are used only occasionally and some aren't really used at all anymore. So here is my list:
1993
Porthos-Probably the fattest and most jovial out of the three Musketeers. So we have this young readers version of The Three Musketeers which has a cool cover of the three musketeers and we always said that I was Porthos. This originated from my older siblings telling the story of watching a version of the Three Musketeers at our Grandparents house (I don't remember me watching it) and Porthos was the one who was eating drum sticks or something and he was really funny. That's how it started anyway, but now if we even start talking about The Three Musketeers I'm Porthos. I've seen three different versions of Porthos being: The Three Musketeers (1993) which I got for Christmas because I really like it a lot. The Three Musketeers (2011) and The Musketeers ( T. V. series 2014-) My personal favourite, and who I think really is the best version of Porthos is the 1993 version. I would also add that probably from book to movie it is not the most faithful, but it sure makes for a great story.

I probably don't get called Porthos that much, but I've played Halo online with Rogan and Saxon and Eden (their respective characters being Aramais, Athos and D'artagnan) and my Steam profile is Porthos. :)


Legolas/The Elf- If any nickname is common out of all of mine, this is the one. The name 'The Elf' which eventually included Legolas as well started with my brother Saxon rhyming peoples names with different things. For instance, Eden was Eden of Sweden ect. So my name rhymes with Elven so Saxon began to call me Vellvin Da Elven. In fact my Instagram profile is that! :D Once I became Vellvin Da Elven it quickly became Legolas. I've gotta say I really like this nickname. I find that as a character Legolas is better int the Hobbit as he actually talks a lot. But I like LOTR better than the Hobbit, hence the reason why the picture is LOTR. :)

Flea- Okay, I know what you are thinking...What a weird name, right? Who would want a nickname like Flea? Well, really how it started is a bit of a long story.
A few years back, Mum bought this cartoon DVD series which was Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales. Now, I am honestly not an expert on Fairy Tales but there is one of the stories which we watched called 'The Professor and the Flea'. And it's about this Professor and his performing Flea. They get stranded on this island where there are cannibals and the flea manages to safe them by amusing the spoiled Princess who is in charge. Autumn and I find this very amusing indeed. And we have a habit of being a bit stupid, both of us, as sister are from time to time. :) And Autumn found that whatever I was doing was very funny. The Princess in the story says. "You amuse me, Flea!" And that is exactly what Autumn said. So in other words I'm the Flea and she's the Princess. :) I told you it was a long story. :)

Sergie- This is once again a nickname that Saxon gave me. I don't know how many of you guys ahve seen Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. I actually haven't even seen all of it. I fell asleep in it. :P But at the start of it the main guy is locked in a prison, and his team breaks him out. But he also helps one of his cell-mates out of the prison as well. This other prisoner calls him 'Sergie' even though his name is not that. So Saxon got into the habit of coming home from work and saying 'Sergie' to me. Of course this one hasn't been used in a very long time. :)
This is Balian and I the other week. 
Belvie- This is my oldest nickname ever. Well, technically what it was suppose to be is 'Velvie' but the littler ones never actually said the 'V' at the start of it, but instead added a B. I think it will be really sad when they are bigger because it means that they will no longer refer to me as Belvie. Which will be really sad. :( When I'm talking to Arwen and Trahaearn I usually call myself Belvie. Trahaearn is the one who says my name like that the most.

So there you have it. Those are some of my nicknames/identities. What do you think?

God Bless

To let you know....


Hello everyone! How are you all? I am much better than I was on Monday. Guess what! I can walk!! :D :D The CT scan showed that I had no broken bones. *clap clap clap* My bruises and grazes are healing nicely, which is a relief and I've been able to do some of the stuff which I couldn't do while being lounge-bound. :) Thank you so much for all of your prayers. I really, really appreciated every single one of them! :) I'm sorry that I didn't update you all sooner, but I've been really busy and yesterday I spent a majority of time cooking. :) I made pound cake which was great! :) And strawberry cheescake and yeah, it was just really good. Thank you for praying for me! :)

The Maze Runner (A Review)

Hello everyone! :)
So anyway, as my foot trouble is going I've heard nothing new, Hopefully I'll hear something later today, anbd I pray, that it is a good result! But today I'm not really talking about that. Today I'm talking about the movie I watched on Saturday.
Now, just so you know, I have no idea how good from book-to-movie this is. I hope to read the books soon. :)

The Maze Runner is a movie which is very interesting. Don't get me wrong. I really enjoyed it. It was a good movie, but if you want a clear-cut plot then you'd better go and find something else to watch. :)
Plot:
Basically it's about a colony of people who live in a glade in the middle of the maze. They get sent new supplies and one new person each month, and each and everyone one of them only remembers what their name is. They have no idea who they were before the maze. And no idea why they were sent to the maze, either. They've been trying to chart the maze for three years, trying to find a way out of it, but with not very much success at all. They have a few people who go out into the maze each day, charting it, and they are called Maze-Runners, but they always need to get back to the glade before sun set as the maze blocks the entrance to the glade at that time. No one has ever survived a night in the maze. Ever.
 Thomas (the main character) is sent to the maze and is more determined, and curious then most others, thinking and trying new ways to get out of the maze. And he becomes a Maze-Runner. That's all I'm going to tell you about the plot. :) Otherwise it would ruin it all. :)

The characters I want to cover:
Thomas: Thomas was a good main character and seemed different than the other people in the glade. Which obviously meant that the plot went forward nicely. It is hard to formulate how much you like a character if you don't have much back story, but he was still a good lead.

Chuck: Okay, he was just really cute. I feel really sad that he has no idea who his parents were. 'sniff' He is so much younger than everyone else, which makes him stand out more. And I don't want to say very much about him because I'm trying to avoid spoilers.

Newt: Newt was probably one of my favourite characters. He certainly knows how to look out for people and is wise enough to see that Thomas is the one they need to follow.

Gally: Honestly he was soooooo irritating!!! And stupid!!! He was also hard to think of as a different character than Eustace. I mean he just looks like Eustace!

Minho: Okay. I think Minho was my other favourite character. He was a strong, good guy. The leader of the runners he knows more about the maze than anyone else and he follows Thomas's lead. I just really liked him. :)

Umm, who else? Oh! Alby he wasn't that interesting, and Teresa was really not that interesting either. I'm sorry if this review is quite short, but I'm just being quick today. :) And most reviews take me quite a while, but this is easier. :)
In short the Maze-Runner is a interesting, different movie. And the ending? I have no idea what to think now! I hope I can read the books soon. Rogan and I are already talking about going to see the second when it comes out this year! :D

Anna-Lisa and Balian came over on Saturday and she watched Maze-Runner with us. Trahaearn was the only little one home and he wanted to hold his nephew. It was so cute! :D

God Bless
