It's pancake day today
Wanna know what I've eaten today?




Sweet potato fries
Not a single pancake in sight and I am disgusted with myself













FOR SHAME!

I've become an over achiever
I never thought the day would come either!
I've read two books in february!
Two
And its only the 16th
So theres room for a third…

(i'm sure I can smell bacon cooking :S)

February 2.0 was Coraline by Neil Gaiman
My mum bought me this for my birthday and I was a bit reluctant cause I'm totally obsessed with the film and it changes it when you read the book after but I manned up and read it anyway
And believe me when I say I've never read a creepier book
It shocks me because its for kids
It freaked me out pretty bad
And I've been having some pretty fucked up dreams since I started reading it
What you need to know is that it isn't scary
It's just creepy
But is why I think they can get away with it for kids
But even the illustration are messed up
Dave McKean has done a good job and got it spot on for each chapter 
But they are freaky as balls

(And although this picture terrifies me, I really really want it on a tshirt. how cool would that be!)


Its very different to the film
But theres more little changes than huge massive ones
But obviously there are a few huge massive ones 
But now I've watched the film and read the book I'm at that tricky stage when you don't know which one you like most…
The film is the reason for my yellow rain coat and my blue and white stary bedding, laptop case and pencil case
But the book has scenes that weren't put into the film that maybe they should have been because that cellar scene is literally fucking horrifically terrifying
Chapter 9
Super Creepsville

I find it hard to explain because it isn't a scary book
When I was little
Probably too little
I read a book called The Demon Within by Dana Reed
And that book was a scary book
It stopped me from sleeping type of scary
And a couple of years ago I found it in the attic so I read it again
It still stopped me from sleeping
But Coraline isn't like that
It gets your mind thinking more than just out right scaring you

Anyway
Big fan
Gonna read the other stories in this book then read his 'The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains'(thank you abbie)

why do people get fickle? 
i get fickle about my nail polish and my favourite song 
not about people

i've just read an article about the narnia chronicles and the guy who wrote the article said that the silver chair was truly the worst of the collection


why bother making a film out of it??
why not leave it at the four kids from the three movies and leave eustace and jill out of it


because of the last battle
meant to be a life changing book and all this stuff so he says
and they'll probably make a film out of that too cause i bet eustace and jill are in that n all
let me check
'Jill and Eustace are called to Narnia once more,…' - The Last Battle

I just don't know how Eustace and Jill are gonna even compare to Peter Susan Edmund and Lucy
actually peter and susan did my fucking head in
so really just Edmund and Lucy
I dunno if they'll do it for me


i need to read them all right now!!
and i need the collectors editions but they're relatively expensive god damn it
I've just had a thought!
what if the professor in the lion the witch and the wardrobe is digory or someone like that from the magicians nephew
and thats why he doesnt get all freaked out when the children tell him about narnia and encourages them in the beginning
and is it fate that the children get taken there to that house or did the professor know something no one else did???
hmmmmmmmm perhaps…… 


i need to read some theories
please excuse me
number four on my list of sorting my life out was to 'read a book a month'

februarys book was one that i got for christmas from chloe
i thank thee again miss
The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis

FUN FACT: did you know the C stands for Clive and the S stands for Staples? What an old school name



It took me three days to read it
I already knew the story cause of the film obviously and haven't actually read the first book, The Magician's Nephew, because i don't have it so I don't know whether in the first book there is a bit of info that would have been good to know before reading the second book but fuck it
who cares really
although in the back of this one there is a little synopsis of each of the other 6 books
it says this for the magicians nephew:

'Make your choice, adventurous stranger;
Strike the bell and bide the danger,
Or wonder, till it drives you mad,
What would have followed if you had.


Magic and a mad uncle put two young children, Digory and Polly, in a situation where they are forced to make a choice. The result is an adventure beyond their wildest dreams as the doorway to the magical land of Narnia opens for the first time…'

so i guess I'd have just got a bit of a Narnian back story

it was alright
im not sure I'm the biggest fan of his writing style
but i suppose it is aimed at kids
and I'm not a kid anymore
unfortunately
though i would have never read it if i was still a kid
so, every cloud i guess

I'm still interested in reading them and will just power through his writing style
mostly because they're making a fourth narnia film, The Silver Chair, which is the 6th book and its not out til like 2016 so i have to know the low down
The book says this about it:

''It must be a dream, it must, it must,' said Jill to herself. 'I'll wake up in a moment.' 
But it wasn't and she didn't'


Eustace and his friend, Jill, are pulled back into Narnia because Prince Rilian, the son of King Caspian, has disappeared. With the aid of a rather gloomy marsh-wiggle the children set out to find him. But will they be able to resist the enchantment of the Lady of the Green Kirtle…'

okay, the things i need to know are how long since The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is The Silver Chair set??
one year?
ten years??
How long after?
Cause if Eustace and Jill are having to look for the Prince does that mean Caspian is dead? 
Also who the hell did Caspian bed to make a prince??! 
cause in the dawn treader it'd been three years since he'd seen susan and he still wasn't over her, if your not over someone in three years you aint getting over em caspian!

I wonder why it's always children that have these adventures
perhaps because the target audience is children and therefore its more relatable?
or children have better imaginations and could handle all the crazy shit that happens to them
but just to throw kids into a battle isn't cool
although maybe peter is 16 and we just haven't been told?
but thats still no excuse for edmund cause in the dawn treader film it states he's too young to join the army
hmmm 
maybe its their open-mindedness
who knows

i used a fantastic mr fox bookmark with this book and it didn't feel right

could be a really long earring if it wasn't a book mark
