Good Books & Movies

I am creating this page for books/movies that I have read/seen that I think everyone should read/see, they don't need to I guess, but, they are REALLY good books/movies! If you have read/watched any of these let me know what you think of them! I will eventually write a review on all of these, and if I have there will be a link to it! Some of these books/movies are better than others, so you'll have to read my review to find out how good they were. Enjoy reading and watching these fine works!!

Whew! I put all my energy into doing the books and now I'm worn out! Thank you so much for reading! If you like any of these, let me know! I'll be adding more!



  1. What a load of movies and books!!! Have you ever seen Downton Abbey, Cinderella (2015), Lark Rise to Candleford, Emma (2009) or Letters To Juliet? They are very good to watch. :) Can I ask you a question? Are those movies you posted here all the movies you once watched?

    1. P.S. Yust followed you. :) Your blog is awesome!

    2. Hello Rachel! Thank you for visting my blog! I have seen the first three seasons and part of the forth of Downton Abbey, and Cinderella (2015), but I haven't seen the other three (I really want to though), These are all books and movies that I have read/watched. I have another page for the things I want to read/watch. Once again, thanks for looking around!!

  2. A Christmas Carol, Little Women, Sense & Sensibility, Little House on the Prairie, Stuart Little!! (Have you read Charlotte's Web?)

    I love these books so much. :)

    1. They are classics! No I haven't, but it is one that I hope to read soon!!!
      Me too!! :D

  3. Oh, Cinderella, Akeelah and the Bee, Aristo Cats, Singin' in the Rain! Those are so enjoyable to watch! Have you seen the movie Little Women? And the two adaptions of Sense and Sensibility are very good too, although 2008 has a very strange beginning(which we skipped). And Little Dorrit 2008 is great to watch too! The tv-mini-serie may start a little mysterious and you could not understand it a lot, but it is really a good serie. And Robin Hood BBC is one of my favourites! It is soooo good! But that's my opinion. (You might notice I'm a Robin Hood BBC fan because of...well, my blog)And Downton Abbey is great too!!
    I love your blog, you're very good at reviewing!

    1. They are super good! I have seen the 1994 Little Women. And I have seen the 1995 Sense and Sensibility, but I hope to see the 2008 one soon. I'll have to try it! Thanks for the tip!! Robin Hood BBC! Yes, I'm still in season three but I am loving it! And I am just starting Downton Abbey, and I'm enjoying it so far! Thank you so much for your sweet comment and looking around my blog!!!!

Even if you don't agree with me, I would love to hear from you as long as you keep the comment respectful and on subject. I am not very good at reviews yet, so advice is welcome! I love comments on old posts!!
