Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Book Review

Book Review

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone is a book by Joanne Rowling, also known as J.K. Rowling, and was published on June 26, 1997.

This book is about a boy, named Harry Potter, who grew up with his aunt and uncle, and his cousin, Dudley. When Harry was just a baby, his parents were killed by the notorious wizard, Voldemort. Voldemort attempted to kill Harry as well, but shockingly the baby survived the killing curse and now assumed the name “The Boy Who Lived.”

When Harry turned 11, he received a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was an invitation to come to school at Hogwarts. Now, Harry’s Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon had never been nice to him. They made him live in a cupboard under the stairs, they gave him Dudley’s old clothes, and they made him do all the chores.

When he received the letter, he was utterly confused. He grew up his whole life thinking his parents died in a car crash, that there was no such thing as magic and that everyone could talk to snakes if they tried!

Imagine that you are Harry and that this huge man came to your house on a secluded island and told you you had been lied to your whole life and that you now are going to a school where magical candles hang from the ceiling.

Pretty crazy, right?

anyways, that’s all for today.

See you later,

Miss Peregrine’s home for Peculiar Children book/movie Review

Book Review

Notice: This movie might be disturbing to younger children.

Rating (movie): PG_13

Rating (Book): Young Adult

Miss Peregrine’s home for Peculiar Children is a young adult book, By Ransom Riggs, and was also made into a movie (screenplay by Tim Burton and directed by Tim Burton)

The movie is slightly odd (You are probably thinking “Obviously, Lizzy! Its a Tim Burton Movie!”) Honestly, I thought the book was better.

It’s about a boy named Jake and his grandfather, Abe Portman, and a house filled with children from all over the world. They are each “Peculiar” or, strange. There is Emma, who can harnest fire and has a fire touch, and then there’s Millard, who is invisable, and then Enoch, who can bring clay soilders to life, and Olive, who is filled with air, Bronwyn, who has the straingth of ten men, and her brother, Victor, with the same peculiarity. And Hugh, who has bees living inside him. Oh, and we can’t forget Miss Peregrine! She’s practicly unforgettable. Her peculiarity is in her name. She is called a Ymbrane, and she can turn into a bird. More specifically, an Peregrine Falcon.

There are a few things that I have found that where in the book but changed in the movie.

  1. They switched Olive and Bronwyn’s ages
  2. They made Enoch older
  3. They switched Olive and Emma’s Peculiarities.
  4. They made Miss Peregrine older
  5. They made it so the monsters ate eyeballs. They did not in the book. (EW)
  6. They made it so Olive could not control her Peculiarity. In the book, Emma could control her Peculiarity.

That’s all I can think of!

Septimus Heap Book 2 : Flyte Book Review

Book Review

Hey, Readers!

I really loved this book. At my library, they didn’t have the first book (Magyk) so I read this book (Flyte) and it really hit off! It was so much fun reading it! Definately a book for 9+!  I finished it so fast. But don’t be fooled by it’s small size! Angie Sage is a GENIUS. You must read this book. My favorite character is Jenna. She is Septimus’s adopted sister, and a princess. Hopefully you’ll love it as much as me! Sail on, Readers!
