    I believe I should win because I have been a huge fan of Rick Riordan since the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series came out all of those years ago. I have actually read the Kane Chronicles before and thoroughly enjoyed it! To own this series would make me very, very jubilant!

    bournethisway's movie review was featured in SPECTRE.
    In this fourth installment of the Daniel Craig, Bond movies, he once again not only fails to disappoint, but rises above all expectations. In the midst of the power scramble after M's death, Bond discovers a symbol on the ring of a suspect that leads him straight to the heart of an organization called SPECTRE who are single handedly responsible for all of the hardship he was put through in the previous motion pictures. Following this, his hand is forced as he works tirelessly to end its unchallenged reign throughout the film. What makes the film even better is the cover song written, produced, and performed by none other than Sam Smith. Personally, Sam Smith was an excellent choice being British and all. I absolutely recommend this movie as well as all of the Daniel Craig movies prior to this one. Besides the point, we can all look forward to the newest Bond film coming out in 2019!

    bournethisway's book review was featured in Fahrenheit 451.
    Fahrenheit 451 was written over 60 years ago by Ray Bradbury which makes it even more impressive how well it has stood the test of time being relatable to the age we're living in today. But basically, the government has enlisted the help of "firefighters" whose job is actually to do just the opposite. Burn all of the books and the homes that house them. Guy Montag, is one such firefighter who meets a very odd peculiar girl named Clarisse. They actually become great friends despite their very distinct lifestyle differences. Clarisse asks very interpersonal, even intimate questions at times which starts causing Guy Montag to ask questions about his own life. As I went on, I was pleasantly surprised. It is one of those books that you could read time and time again and notice something new each and every time. Faber has to be one of my favorite characters. From what I’ve read, he has no ulterior motive and seems fully focused on preserving literature in such a broken world. My image of Faber actually lies in the basis of the kind, very wise grandfather figure many people have in their lives. Someone who has seen it all done it all for you to confide in. I really see this at work assessing Guy Montag’s attachment to Faber. At the moment, Montag is desperately trying to reach Faber with a crippled body that was a result of a standoff with Captain Beatty that actually resulted in his death! Now, Montag on the run makes it to Faber's home is able to throw his scent off in order to escape from the hound, an automaton robot dog that is described with spider legs and a needle housed in its neck that kills upon contact. Montag ends up with a group of homeless folk who protect the memory of literature in their heads. Each one of them has memorized a piece of literature they believed needed to be reserved. What you don't really take note of during all of the action of Montag escaping from the authorities and the dreadful hound is that in the midst of all of this, a war has begun. However, set in the future, we forget that war has a totally different meaning. War meant weapons of mass destruction which therefore means massive collateral damage. In the aftermath of a nuclear attack that leveled the city, Bradbury describes the legend of the Phoenix dying and rising from the ashes. Similar to the Phoneix, humanity would rise again from the ashes of destruction again and again and again. All in all, Fahrenheit 451 is a thought provking, moving story that I highly, highly reccomend!

    bournethiswayliked a comment in The Legend Trilogy.
    Legend is one of my favorite series of all time, if not my absolute favorite trilogy. Marie Lu is a fantastic author, and I believe she deserves two thumbs up for this series. The character development is absolutely phenomenal (seriously, after reading I wondered how long it took her to plot out the characters!) and the plot is fantastically well planned out. I loved every single page of these books, and the details and characters in this book are amazing. Lu is by far one of my favorite authors of all time, and if you have not read this series please do!
