I went to see The Hunger Games yesterday. I won’t post another review as I’m a long way behind the rest (although I will say I loved it). Instead, in honour of the film and another favourite of mine Twilight, I thought I’d pitch the YA series’ against each other.

I did not get it.… Continue reading Is Twitter the new Marmite?
Sigh it's Monday again. So a fun post is in order I think! I love films. I usually watch a new one every week supplemented with a couple of my favourite films.
