NOS4A2 by Joe Hill | Book Review

NOS4A2 is a book I have been putting off for a long time. In part, it’s because I didn’t feel any particular way about Joe Hill’s other novel, Horns, and I didn’t want this one to disappoint. Going into it, the storyline was definitely more up my alley and thankfully, it impressed me more than I expected it to.

No Exit (2022) | Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

Before watching the No Exit, I’d read the book. It definitely influenced my opinion of the movie. Personally, I prefer the book but I enjoyed both and I’m glad I sat down to watch this adaptation. For those who don’t know. No Exit follows Darby who is forced to take refuge at a rest stop during a blizzard. There she meets four strangers and finds evidence that one of them may have kidnapped a child. 

Now, there are some differences between the book and the movie so I would say it’s worth checking out both, however, at its core, the plot is essentially the same whether you read the book or watch the movie.

No Exit by Taylor Adams | Book Review

It’s by no means perfect but No Exit is still a decent thriller that’s worth the time picking up. It’s fast-paced which makes for a fairly quick reading experience and despite the odd hiccup here and there, it’s almost entirely a constant push forward.

The story follows Darby who is forced to take refuge at a rest stop during a blizzard along with four strangers. While there, she discovers evidence of a kidnapped child and has to figure out what to do and who might be involved.

Bridgerton Season 2 Review

This post has potential, minor SPOILERS.

Admittedly, I wasn’t sure how much I’d like season 2 of Bridgerton going into it. This is because I never felt any particular way towards Anthony (the eldest Bridgerton sibling whom this season follows). I was, however, happy to find that I enjoyed this season quite a bit and honestly, I probably enjoyed it as equally as the first.

Here’s the thing with Bridgerton. It’s not going to be for everyone and I would argue is not the kind of show you go into for anything other than a good time. While it does have deeper and more emotional scenes and storylines — Anthony’s past surrounding his father is a particularly good example of this — it can also be a little silly and over the top at times.

The Lost Daughter (2021) | Movie Review

While it’s not a favourite, I did enjoy The Lost Daughter more than I was expecting to and it actually grew on me a little in the few days after I watched it. In particular, I really enjoyed the way it looks and sounds. For the most part, it manages to keep a strong aesthetic (and feeling) throughout even if it does waver here and there.
