Other Bookish Things:

I went to my local Waterstones the other day for a decent wander around (usually when I end up there, it’s because I’ve popped in just before I go home). This time I bought a copy of “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins. When we had the horrendous floods in December 2015, I was coming back from a day trip and got stuck miles from home due to lack of trains and road access. This meant I couldn’t get home for 2 nights but my friend’s mum kindly took me in. She let me read her copy of this book but I only got halfway through and because it was a library book, I couldn’t borrow it. Waterstones had the paperback on offer at half price so I decided to get myself a copy so I can finally finish it!

Other Bookish Things:

I found this article on Buzzfeed “Proof That “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince” Had The Most Beautiful Cinematography” about the cinematography of the film version of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Price” and it made me realise just how different this film is to the others. Looking at the stills from the film makes me appreciate the beauty of the images captured and how the tone is set in each scene. Usually, I’m too wrapped up in the story and characters to think about the cinematography of a film, but occasionally, I’ll watch a film which has more to it and is more thought about than others. Another example of a film which is like this is “Inception”, with its mind-bending visuals!
