Everything, Everything (movie)

I watched Everything, Everything this morning. It is based on the book by Nicola Yoon (which I just read). It has Amandla Stenberg, Nick Robinson, Ana de la Reguera, Taylor Hickson, Anika Noni Rose, Danube Hermosillo, Robert Lawrenson, Peter Benson, Françoise Yip, and Marion Eisman in it.

Warning: it is emotional and one sex scene.

Quick summary: a girl who has rare disease who can’t go outside, falls in love with a guy. There are some differences between the book and the movie.

1. Olly’s eye color is blue.
2. In the book, Olly teases Maddy how to do a handstand. In the movie, she
knows how to do one.
3. Olly is into parkour in the book. In the movie, he’s not.
4. They email each other in the book. In the movie, they use cell phones and text. In the book, she doesn’t have a cell phone until the end of the book.
5. Maddy’s bathing suit is bright pink in the book. In the movie, it’s yellow.

I think her mother had Munchausen syndrome by proxy (info below) because she refused to think that her daughter wasn’t sick. Even though there were differences between the book and movie, I really enjoyed both. They both are thought-provoking.

Monday I’m still watching Garage Sale Mystery: The Pandora Box Murders. And I will watch Miss Peregrine’s House for Peculiar Children as soon as I finish reading the book.

Everything, Everything (book)

I finished reading Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. There is a movie based on the book which I will be watching today. This is a young adult book.

Warning: this book is addicting and it is emotional.

In this book, a girl named Madeline has a rare disease that causes her to be allergic to the outside world. She has a low immune system. She sorta content staying inside until a family moves in next door. She sees the family next door has a teenage boy. She instantly likes him. She begs her nurse to let her meet him in person. Her nurse agrees to meeting lasting a few minutes. They fall in love. Then she gets news about her illness that changes everything.

I love this book. Now I’m reading next Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I’m watching the movie as soon as I finish the book.

You can get this book at Wordery.com, Kobo.com, and Downpour.com.

Origin

I finished reading Origin by Dan Brown. It is the fifth book of Robert Langdon book series.

Warning: there are a few sad parts and some violence.

In this book, Robert Langdon is asked to attend an event given by a former student named Edmond Kirsch. Edmond Kirsch is a computer scientist. He supposedly made a discovery about the origin of life itself and what humans will evolve to. Right when he was about to announce his discovery, Edmond was killed. The curator of the museum that hosted the event was there too. She told Langdon that she knew how to find out what Edmond was going to announce. (This is when my Kindle died. It drove me crazy because I wanted to know what he was going to announce. I got my new Kindle and found out.) The discovery wasn’t actually new. (I saw the tv show One Strange Rock which said basically the same thing.) The second part of the discovery was what we evolve to which wasn’t surprising. Of course, technology will be our future.

I did like this book. I’m reading next Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. It is part of my book to movie marathon which means once I finish this book I’ll watch the movie.

You can find this book at Wordery, Kobo.com, and Downpour.com.

The Novel Murders (movie)

I watched Garage Sale Mystery: The Novel Murders yesterday. I had taped it when it was on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries network. It has Lori Loughlin, Sarah Strange, Steve Bacic, Eva Bourne, Connor Stanhope, Kevin O’Grady, Gerard Plunkett, John Innes, and Ken Tremblett in it.

Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, Jennifer delivers a bird cage to an elderly man’s apartment and discovers him dead. The way the murder was set up reminds her of a book she read. She finds out it was an Agatha Christie book. Then two other murders happened and those murders were set up like two other books. I did like this movie.

Next week I’m watching The Pandora Box Murders. It is another Garage Sale Mystery. I might be also watching Everything, Everything as soon as I finish the book.
