A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo’s dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7): 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
It’s no longer safe for Harry at Hogwarts, so he and his best friends, Ron and Hermione, are on the run. Professor Dumbledore has given them clues about what they need to do to defeat the dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, once and for all, but it’s up to them to figure out what these hints and suggestions really mean. Their cross-country odyssey has them searching desperately for the answers, while evading capture or death at every turn. At the same time, their friendship, fortitude, and sense of right and wrong are tested in ways they never could have imagined. The ultimate battle between good and evil that closes out this final chapter of the epic series takes place where Harry’s Wizarding life began: at Hogwarts. The satisfying conclusion offers shocking last-minute twists, incredible acts of courage, powerful new forms of magic, and the resolution of many mysteries. Above all, this intense, cathartic book serves as a clear statement of the message at the heart of the Harry Potter series: that choice matters much more than destiny, and that love will always triumph over death.
Now, these are not books, but movies are usually books turned into images.
So I watched 2 movies (that I remember of): Nerve and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Industrious high school senior Vee Delmonico (Emma Roberts) is tired of living life on the sidelines. Pressured by her friends, Vee decides to join Nerve, a popular online game that challenges players to accept a series of dares. It’s not long before the adrenaline-fueled competition requires her to perform increasingly dangerous stunts. When Nerve begins to take a sinister turn, Vee finds herself in a high-stakes finale that will ultimately determine her entire future.
I loved this movie so so much! It was just so interesting! It didn’t have a slow start, which I enjoyed. The movie had a very clear message 1) Don’t let peer pressure get to you 2) Social media is sometimes dangerous.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Confident in his powers as Spider-Man, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) embraces his new role as a hero and spends time with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in between protecting New York from criminals. However, his greatest battle yet is about to begin. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront an enemy far more powerful than he is. And when his old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns, Peter comes to realize that all his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.
I did NOT like this movie. It was wayy to complicated. So much going on! If you really REALLY fell in love with the first one, then maybe you’ll enjoy it. But the actors were pretty good so that kinda makes up for it.
I did the Sims Book tag which I got nominated for in February by Kate Gold.
WADA YA THINK?
Did you enjoy? I got lots of things done in March and downloaded lots of apps that I will show you in my April Wrap-Up. They helped me be super productive and I think they will help you too.
