Likes:

It was very interesting and that was partly  why I enjoyed it. Also, I loved the intensity of the middle section of the book. It was extremely entertaining.

Dislikes:

I’m sorry but the movie does sound a lot better. (I haven’t watched it so I can’t say anything). Also, if it was meant to be a single book why wasn’t the ending more closed in. I didn’t really like the ending.

What was the drive behind you to take up blogging?

My perfect day would be no school, hanging out with friends and family, going to the beach and of course writing this blog!!!

Who is the most inspirational person you have met until now?

I don’t have one person, I have many. My dad because he always makes me laugh and my mum for always providing me with great advice. Also, all my school friends who have made me the best I can be and provided me with advice, hospitality and kindness.
