Alton Towers

Review: Thirteen!

Oooooooh! Thirteen!! Despite the long waiting times, the 13 experience was a brilliant one!! We were in the line for 45-55mins, which compare to other people who have waited 2hours+, it doesn't seem too bad. The best thing in my opinion is that I had no real idea of what was going to happen! :s I suggest to everyone to go on it without knowing - if you can! Myself and my little (9 year old) cousin were at the very front and loved it. It mixes roller coaster fast madness with scary mary ghost house fun! There are a couple of very noticeable surprises too! :)

So to those going to Alton Towers... you better not go... alone


Book Review - The Host

Book Review: The Host
by Stephenie Meyer

"Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed"

I began this book under the note ''it's a bit weird''. And it was ~ Very weird! But once the reader gets the idea of what the world is like in the book and who the characters are, they really get into it.

If you can make it through the first few chapters and get your head around the concept I think you will really enjoy it. The book is full of emotion and complicated situations. There are a lot of questions raised about human nature and 'what would I do in that situation' questions to ask yourself.

Overall I really enjoyed it! - it was easy to read (apart from understanding the initial concept) and quite an emotional read too.
