[Error: unknown template qotd]It's been a really long time since I deeply soaked in anything Harry Potter so I can't be too detailed on the film vs book comparison. Prisoner of Azkaban was my favourite book. When Hermione did what she did to Draco...that was quite a turning point. I also felt PoA was darker compared to the first two books.

MIne is probably Beauty & The Beast. There was something about that story that always touched my heart whenever I read it and this was before I watched the Disney version (which was also just as good).
Some reference to this and my post on season 3 finale

I'm not Team this or that )

Pride & Prejudice isn't my favourite book ever (very difficult to narrow down a particular book that is my favourite tbh) but the opening line is very well-known.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife

Probably a mix of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger except I was not a boffin like the latter whatsoever. I may not have been a straight A student like a typical Asian nerd who knew everything but I did do my homework and submitted it on time mostly and focused in class whenever I could, ignoring the dicks who caused trouble. With Harry, he gets shit from the public, people gossip about him for various reasons regardless of whether they're true or not. Teachers or students who hated him gave the guy a hard time. I got all that for being a weirdo Chinese girl. Oh joy.

Things I have noticed on season 4 so far and question the writers...
Read more... )
Had a scary thought about this O____O

I got inspired by this awesome post on [livejournal.com profile] hated_character and it reminded me of how frustrating it is to see the Mary Sue/Gary Stu label abuse in fandoms.

But then lately I had this scary thought while reflecting about memories from school and it also took me back to my previous post where I briefly mentioned how we are all in fact real life Mary Sues or for men Gary Stus and don't want to admit them. Whether that is a good thing or not, we can only decide that for ourselves. I almost think one of my ex-colleagues was a Mary Sue. She almost had a perfect childhood and doesn't hesitate to brag about how wonderful her life has been. I think we'd all want to vomit from that idea.

cluttered thoughts lie beneath )

I am rather keen on music and dramas so I guess I'd say the entertainment column - minus the obvious sarcasm journalists enjoy putting in to make themselves cooler. Another thing I'd put in is more focus on the Far East side of things as well as British or US things that have impressed me lately.
[Error: unknown template qotd]

Longest book would probably be Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer.

Shortest book is definitely A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. I read that very quickly in an hour, on the way home from work.
[Error: unknown template qotd]

Book series - usually Manga, urban fantasy or supernatural fiction in the YA range.

If I really like a book series I would keep buying the books as they come out until the end... unless it goes on for too long and the plot gets crap then I would give up completely.

I used to collect lots of stamps. Family started the stamp collecting originally so I would continue the routine whenever we got letters.
I didn't watch the BRITS last night since I don't know majority of the nominees very well - aside from Take That ^_^;; Halfway through watching the Grammys though and there are more people I know featured. Take Muse for example. I'm delighted they're getting recognition in the US and I did suddenly think of Adam Lambert when Muse were mentioned. I wondered whether he was being a little fanboy since he was in the audience. Well done to Muse for getting a Grammy for the first time.

Uprising ... with lots of fangirls screaming XD Matt's blazer is so sparkly here.

I think the song Uprising fits The Hunger Games perfectly. What do you think?

Also, if there was a band I'd like to see Adam collaborate with it would be Muse :D Or at least cover more songs from them other than Starlight. Unintended please or maybe Plug In Baby *_*

As a teen I was into Sweet Valley Twins and Sweet Valley High. It was a guilty pleasure. I identified with Elizabeth Wakefield the most and thought she was a good girl so therefore a good character (yes that was how I thought back then O_O). Not sure why I liked the books exactly. It's been too long. Maybe I just found it fun to see what crazy drama the characters were experiencing. When I was much younger, however, I liked reading various stories from the Story Teller series, especially Gobbolino. I did occasionally go back to my copies of Dirty Beasts or Revolting Rhymes though.
