Summer reading #3

I have finished revenge by Martina cole and I have to say it's so sad that I finished this book. I love this book, it's officially one of my favourite books. The book itself consists of 4 books, and the story of Michael Flynn over 35yrs. At first I was a little confused, as the prologue was set in 2012 and then book 1 was set all the way in 1979. Anyways! Once I got past that, I had to get used to the written style, which is very different from what I am used to. The book is written well, however, when I was reading it I couldn't help but think I was in the movie Rock n' Rolla or 44inch chest. The story is very gripping and once I picked it up to read it, I couldn't  put it down, for days I fashioned my time around it. The story it self, does contain a lot of violence, which I quite happen to like, though, I realise it might not be for the faint hearted.

My favourite character in the book was of course the protagonist himself Michael Flynn, who starts out as a apprentice for a  criminal enterprise and that's the basis of the book. He gradually progresses to greatness through the book and later on, his only daughter does get kidnapped. The characters felt so real, though there was a running theme with all the teens in this book which I didn't like, as it felt really repetitive.  Though, the book did keep me guessing, as there was quite a lot of twists.

I'd have to stop here as I can't really say much more about it without giving away huge spoilers.

The book I am about to start reading is The Three by Sarah lotz, and from my understanding it is about survivors of plane crashes. On  a random Thursday which has been dubbed black Thursday, four passenger planes crash simultaneously, at four different locations around the world. There four survivors, three of them being three children who seemed unhurt. The fourth who is an adult who only lives long enough to leave a warning voice message on her phone.

So the book does look very promising.

Wireless Festival Catch up



Ellie Goulding
Wiz Khalifa
Rudimental
 
Hello all, I worked at the wireless festival this past weekend in Birmingham. It was really good as far as first attempts go, as this was the first time it was held in Birmingham. There was also, the cancellation by Drake, which meant it wasn't going to be as good as it would have been.  Anyways on the work side, I was working on the bar in the VIP area which was behind the Main stage. Which meant I missed some acts, however I had a backstage working wristband again, so I did use it at every chance I got. At first I was disappointed with work because I was supposed to be working full days, but not a lot of people came to the VIP area so our shifts got cut in half. Which is great, but some of us travelled and paid for our own accommodation this time, so we were a already out of pocket; quite a few people did quit because of that. Anyways, I wasn't too bothered, yes I wasn't getting paid as much as I would have but I did get to see some great acts, for free and as well as hang out in the VIP, Press and Backstage area as much as I wanted.

I got to see Rudimental, Wiz Khalifa, John Newman, Bruno Mars, ASAP Ferg, Neon Jungle, Raleigh Ritchie, Iggy Azalea, Pharrell Williams and of Course YEEZUS himself Kanye West. I don't care what people say, even those who don't like Kanye would have been happy to see him live for free and say that they have seen him. I had a wonderful time, it was definitely work getting my hours cut, to see the acts.

Whilst, I was back in the VIP area I got to meet and serve a few famous faces, they only really big star that was there was Schoolboy Q, even though not a lot of people knew who he was. He must have done something right to have performed on the main stage. There was also other famous D-list Celebrates and Socialites like, a few of the Hollyoaks cast, Corry cast, Pervious Big brother entries and a random Gaz from Geordie shore. Jamila was also came to bar. There was a whole lot more famous people but I wouldn't know who they were, because I don't even know what half of the other acts looked like. Anyways! I had a really fun weekend and I am hoping wakestock will be just as great.

Hello July + Festival Madness

I don't really like the month of July, as it can really be 'Hit or Miss', because its official results months for most university students; as most people know. I mean we all do find out results way before July, but as they are only provisional, there's is always that threat they may be moderated. Anyways! so this month other than results, I have moved house! this is the 5th time I have moved house in 3/4years and I moved in today. Which is why I haven't really posted in the last week or so as I was busy sorting out packing, cleaning and moving. Tell you what though, I am not looking forward to unpacking.

Also, this month I will be working at two festivals and they are as follows:
Source
VIP area at Wireless festival in Birmingham (04-05-06 July)
Source
Bar stuff at Wakestock in North Wales (11-12-13 July)

I am really excited to be working at these, but at the same time I don't know how I am going to manage, because it takes me about two weeks to recover from a festival. I really hope it doesn't rain...a lot, a little rain is alright I suppose. In al this madness, I need to fit in Transformers 4! in IMAX, I have been looking forward to see this movie since the last one.  So July, please be good to me.
