Glee




Glee is a tv show that has taken the world (ok well America, Canada and Australia) and is watched by millions!
I LOVE Glee but what is it about ?
Glee is about when a spanish teacher decides to take over the glee club (think choir but different) thus resulting in massive changes and a complete makeover of the club. It starts out with just 6 students but then slowly it gets bigger. Chuck in a competive cheerleading coach, romance and whole lot more you get Glee! The music is great not to mention the acting and the scrip it is over all a great show!
Who should watch glee? well I'm really not sure, I got dragged in to glee as one of my friends (amazingly who is a guy) Andrew got me to watch an episode and I got hooked. But if you love High School Muscial you would like this! before I go here are few songs that they have remixed and are well worth listening to! Volume 1:




  • Don't stop beliving.


  • No air.


  • Keep holding on.


  • Dancing with myself.


  • Somebody to love.


Volume 2:





  • My life would suck with out you.


  • Don't rain on my parade.


  • True Colors


  • Smile (charlie chaplan)


  • you can't always get what you want.


So check these out on itunes if you want!

Harry Potter VS Twilight



Many books get published each year but none has made quite a stir since Harry Potter and more recently Twilight. So what happens when I Erin Maree book reader extrordinare put both books against each other? Well lets find out!


Harry Potter and the philosophers stone by J K Rowling (bloomsbury publishing)


OverView: It is a story about an orphened boy who finds out he is a wizard (much to his aunt and uncle's disgust) and tells of his first year at Hogwarts school of witch craft and wizardry.It is the first book in the Harry Potter Series (I won't tell you any more as I will spoil the book!)


Genre: Fantasy but you could easily say adventure.


Who should read it: Though Rowling wrote it in mind for 11 year olds, any one should read it! I am personly not a big fantasy or adventure fan but I LOVE this!


Other comments: This is written beautifully and is impossible to put down and once you read the first one you have to read the whole series!


Rating: 5 stars ***** out of 5 *****


Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (little publishing).


OverView: It is a modern day Romeo and Juliet. When Bella falls in love with mysterous Edward Cullen ( this is the part when girls scream) she suddenly finds out he is a vampire and can easily kill her. Will she go with her heart or instinct (well we all know what happens next!). This is the first book in the Twilight Series.


Genre: Fantasy romance ( Basicly Chic lit).


Who should read it: Any one who likes a twisted love story and is a teenage girl need I say more?!


Other Comments: This is one of my least favourite books (the reason behind the poor rating) as it is written poorly and it is very predictible.


Rating: 2 stars ***** out of 5 *****


Note: These are my personly views on both books and I am and only voicing my opinion!
