City of Bones
Author: Cassandra Clare

Rating: ★★★★★

My thoughts: I loved this book because I found it very unique in its genre. I love how the author makes up this incredible world in a city like New York, which could seem anything but magical or supernatural. But all her fantastic places are concealed right at the heart of the city, giving this book the perfect atmosphere. Also, you can just tell that there was so much thought in the development of all the character, as the story develops and unfolds slowly but with such a precision of details and wonderful descriptions that it really does end up in completely unexpected twists. I can't wait to read the next volume of the series!

Sunshine Cleaning
Year: 2008
Directed by: Christine Jeffs
Seen on: August 2009
Rating: ★★★☆☆
My thoughts: Sunshine Cleaning was an interesting film. It wasn't the least how I expected it to be, as the trailer said it was meant to be funny, and by the same author of Little Miss Sunshine, which is one of my favourite comedies. It wasn't funny but rather depressing, but I still think it was a very good film. The authors were very brave because they chose a very unusual/unpopular theme, and the characters are not heroes with a great personality, but everyday people who have gotten used not to want too much from their lives and who all look completely stuck.
This film has a great message, and I personally think that the ending is very positive and makes up for everything else. It was acted in a brilliant way and it had some very moving moments, but what I loved the most was the characters, as non of them was the 'conventional' type of film protagonist you'd expect :)
