The Sunday Post #4: I Now Walk Into The Wild

So another week has passed! How’s your week been? I finally got some reading done. This week I read 5 books:  Finders Keepers (Bill Hodges Trilogy #2) by Stephen King: Slow at first and then everything happened at once. Stephen King does not let you down. I’m looking forward to reading the third part of Bill Hodges trilogy. Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity #1) by Victoria Schwab: Darker kind of fantasy and I really missed that ♥ Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor & Tribe: We Need You To Lead Us by Seth Godin .Below two of my reviews on Goodreads.

Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1)Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Strange, dreamy and utterly beautiful book. If you thought that Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy was wonderful, you know nothing.

 

Into the WildInto the Wild by Jon Krakauer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What drives a young man to abandon everything and to go into the Alaskan wilderness. Krakauer tries to tackle that question in his book Into the Wild. It’s a story of Chris McCandless who went into the Alaskan wilderness when he was 23 years old and never returned. Eventually, his body was found in a converted bus.For quite some time I was wondering if it really was necessary to turn that article into 200 pages long book. I had trouble concentrating on reading this because of that thinking. I have reached the conclusion that it was necessary to turn that article into a book. I think what is captivating about this book is the conflict. Many of us live unhappy lives and never do anything to change anything about their lives. Into the Wild is perhaps extreme example how life can be changed but there lies the core message of the book. Make the changes. Don’t settle, walk into the wild.

On the blog I reviewed: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

I went to movies thrice this week. Seriously thrice. Should I start a movie blog?  I saw: War for the Planet of Apes, Spider-Man: Homecoming & Baywatch. War for the Planet of Apes: I think the title is a bit misleading. After the events of the previous movie…can we really call it a war? But the movie was epic. I don’t know how else to describe it. Apes riding horses on the beach. Apes in some giant castles. Apes carrying machine guns. Apes talking. That was all very entertaining. It was a sadder movie, however, I’m hoping there will be a sequel trilogy as I’m not ready to let go … Spider-Man: Homecoming: Silliest Marvel movie ever. I loved the lighter tone of this movie. It’s different to any Spider-Man movies before this, different in a good way. I liked this one a lot and there were pretty good plot twists. Baywatch: Ah, Priyanka Chopra is just gorgeous ♥  Even if her character was kind of the bad…and what happened to her in the end. And Dwayne Johnson ♥ I have an issue with developing instant crush on tall men and I can tell immediately who is tall and who is not on screen…I think I liked Johnson more than Efron o.O Anyways Baywatch was a lot of fun & it is the perfect summer movie. I warmly recommend it!

I did some shopping. Look at my Mini Deadpool and Awesome Mix Vol. 2 ♥♥♥ Then I spent plenty of time outside just bicycling around the city. Good weather has FINALLY arrived in Helsinki.
