Book review: Warm Bodies (No spoilers)

Even though I am not a big Gore fan, I do like Zombie apocalypse books and movies if they are not too scary. I started reading Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion and it was good! I would definitely be interested in watching the movie, even though I heard it’s not as good as the book. Warm Bodies portays the Zombie apocalypse from the un-dead’s side. A Zombie named “R” meets a girl named Julie and falls in love with her. A pretty interesting story. Check it out!

Star Wars Rogue One at Rycom Movie theater

Gonna be honest, the movie ticket prizes in Japan are pretty savage. 1700¥ for a ticket. No matter what time or movie. If you want to enjoy 3D it’s even more, 1900¥. But seriously: it was worth it seeing the new Star Wars movie!! It was great! Go check it out, if you are contemplating on going. I looked for an eigakan (jpn for movie theater) that played it in English with Japanese subs so I would be able to understand everything and Rycom mall had a showing at night. Didn’t regret spending the money! 

Wistful perfume is strangely comforting…

For some reason this new perfume my mom gave me is very comforting. The scent is mild and light but feminine and elegant. It’s from France. I wonder where I know it from.

The Japanese Carbonara Spagetti

Look at this beauty! I wanted to go for a pasta dish the other day when I met up for lunch with my friends at Joyfull. The Joyfull chain restaurants serve a whole lot of deliciousness and this was my first Carbonara Spagetti outside of Europe. It was quite good and the egg on top was quite different from what I am used to.

Tv Show: Stranger Things

Here another review! This show was quite short but very very exciting!

Have you guys heard of “Stranger Things”, the new Netflix series? It came out this year and got a lot of people hooked!

The show has a whole of 8 episodes and takes place in the 80ies in the American Town Hawkins. Will, a boy of 12 years old one day mysteriously dissapears. His friends, family and the police start a search to find him but soon his body is found in a lake. But something is very wrong about his whole disappearance and also, about Wills body. Strange things are happing in the town. More people go missing and Will’s mom is receiving mysterious phone calls from her son. 

To find out what has happened to Will and if he is still alive, the characters of the show join forces to get behind the secrets of the woods that surround the town. 

“Stranger Things” is definitely an exiciting show to watch. Check it out if you like mystery and suspense. It definitely is a bit scary and exciting at times, but so worth the watch. The acting is so amazing, the story line so thought through and the characters are so greatly portrayed and developed! 

Tv Show: Downton Abbey

Wow, I remember starting this show when I was home on vacation in Germany in July! I actually finished the whole series! It was good but often pretty long. There are a lot of characters in the show and they focus on each one of them.

If you love the Twenties and history, definitely check out Downton Abbey. It has a bit of a Pride and Prejudice feel (one of the characters actually refers to Elizabeth Bennett), but with a more modern feel. You can see the characters reaction to political happenings, new inventions coming into their lives (like the telephone), new styles arriving and how the woman gets more and more independent in the world of the twenties. 

Review on ‘The Office’ | American version

I’m finally done with watching the Office. I really liked the show and I was excited to go through it. Parks and Recreation is probably still my favorite but the Office really emphasizes the normal workplace many people go to every day and it shows you how much fun you can have in a mediocre day. Parks and Rec doesn’t really show a simple and mundane work life. It’s a bit different. I am very interested in starting up the British Office now! 

But hey, next week the new Flash Season starts!!! I’m not even missing Doctor Who, which pauses for a while because the writer is arranging his last season. We will see how Doctor Who turns out next year!
