The Protector (Review)

Director; Tosca Musk
Romance
2h 6 minutes
Now streaming on Passionflix.

Based on the novel by Jodi Ellen Malpas with the same name, Passionflix, an online streaming website that turns popular romance novels into movies and series decided to make the movie adaption of this book – as excited as I first was to finally see The Protector on the screen, and not just through the pages as I had done since I bought the novel, I must say, that excitement quickly faded away into thin air.

It was simply bad, gut-wrenching, and it hurt my eyes.
My soul was torn, my heart in pieces shattered on the floor, and in shock that the author even approved this – who in their right mind would sell out so easy on a work they’ve been working so hard on for someone else to ruin in 2 hours and 6 minutes?!

Everything was bad; the second-class acting, the poor script, the unpleasant visual, and worst? The painful sound that made my entire essence cringe. I pray to the every lord above that they don’t try to turn another of my favorite novels into movies or I will rip my eyeballs out, because one thing I cannot stand is directors, producers, and script creators slaughtering my lovable books that I read with passion, excitement, and so much enthusiasm – for them to crap all over it.

If you’ve read the novel, don’t dare watching the movie. 0/10



It ends with us (Review)

ends-with-us

Anyone and everyone should read this extraordinary emotional novel, and once you enter the enticingly captivating world of Colleen Hoover, you will want to stay.
It Ends With Us reminded me why I fell in love with writing all over again, it reminded me why I wanted to become an author, why I loved reading so much, and why I loved to let my thoughts dreamingly fly away on a cloud to the unknown. To a place far beyond the stars, and further.

It left me yearning for more, begging for crumbs even, it didn’t have to be a lot more, just more because it wasn’t enough for my soul to say goodbye after 300 or so pages, I still wasn’t ready for closure or letting go.
And here I am now, in my deepest despair, praying to the lords above that they’ll help me set each and every character free, to let them go, and keep them in this warm little place inside of my heart that I created for them through each chapter.

It was relatable, because I’ve gone through some of the things Lily went through, and I think that is what made me connect with it and her even more. I didn’t feel alone, it made me feel as if it wasn’t only a novel with words in it but a friend, and that meant everything. I doubt I’ll ever forget this, not only the beautiful story, the emotional rollercoaster, but also the smiles it brought.
The intense feelings at the end, the last page was difficult to read due to the blur caused by the glossiness, and the second I closed the book, my eyes shed one single tear, falling from me like a glistening drop from the gray skies.

I strongly recommend it, it’s beautiful, entertaining, addicting, and emotional. 6.7/10

”Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up – she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, but Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan – her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.” – Goodreads
