The Last Bookstore- Los Angeles Attraction

In the beginning of May, we had the chance to travel to Los Angeles! As reknowned bookworms *smirk*, we had to visit the most popular bookstore out there: THE LAST BOOKSTORE! 

A real bookworm treat babay!

giphy2They have couches to read, every genre is separated in an unique way and my favourite has to be the Horror Vault. Where you are entering through a Vault Metallic Door (AHHH SO COOL) and then it’s dark and you have all these novels from H,P Lovecraft to Edgar Allan Poe. It’s AMAZING. Unforunately, I lost my mac a few weeks ago and all of my pictures were inside. I just have 3 pics left from the gallery hahah .

The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins

MY RATING: ★★★

“There’s nothing so painful, so corrosive, as suspicion.”

thrthr

Goodreads blurb :

“EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. 

UNTIL TODAY
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough.”

Cinedote – Trumbo (2015)

 

Summary: In 1947, Dalton Trumbo was Hollywood’s top screenwriter, until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs.

Director: Jay Roach

Writers: John McNamara (screenplay), Bruce Cook (book)

Stars: Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, John Goodman, Michael Struhlbarg

   Cinema has known a lot of drama throughout time. From actors, screenwriters, directors to Hollywood itself, the things that happen behind the big screen is mind-boggling and a lot of it remains in the closet to this day. Politics has played a huge role in marking the cinematographic landscape. Trumbo is a movie that not only shows you what a screenwriter’s political belief can do to his career, but what an artist will do for his passion. No matter his inclinations in the political world, his silence found ways to reach theaters and propel Dalton Trumbo onto a career like none other. Set around the late 40s and early 50s, Trumbo is known as an elite in what he does. However, several individuals still denounce his allegiance to the Communist Party of the USA and his constant use of cinema for communist propaganda purposes. The relentless assault from anti-communists will take a big tole on Dalton Trumbo’s career as he discovers the infamous blacklist. But, will it be enough to stop Trumbo from making history?
