message 113: by Shelbie

Shelbie Ammirati Before this came out, my friend told me about it. I read the synopsis and wasn't feeling it because I too, am not one for religious reads. I decided to give it a chance after two of my really good friends read it. I got it off Amazon for 1.99 (Kindle deals for the win!) Needless to say, I tore through the book and it tore my soul in half.

Everything you wrote I agree with 100% <3

*waves* HELLO!! :D What kind of fantasy? Like urban or magical or epic fantasy? I'm suuuuch a fan of anything by Maggie Stiefvater (she writes sort of paranormal/urban/magical realism) and for epic fantasy I totally recommend The Winner's Curse and The Demon King and Six of Crows!!!

Yomi Hi, Cait!

*Wave Back*

Notice – do NOT watch the several trailers include the final one of this film. Because there’s a scene that I felt is slight spoil the character’s reason to fight each and the villain’s fight scene.

I'm slight fan in the DC animated and Marvel Films and some of their television series. Included their Marvel Netflix.

I have watched the film couple of days ago.
It’s was OK, but I wasn’t happy in some of their narrative, character's motive and the script. Some scenarios in the film is incomplete.

The Wonder Women scene was fun and slight interested than other scenario and character in the film.

It's funny, because I wasn't the Wonder Women fan in the first place. But because of the Wonder Women’s introduction I have interested to know her full story in her solo film.

This is my film experience after watch Batman V Superman. Not should with DC films with their direction in the future. I am interested in the DC's Suicide Square.
