  1. Kind of tough to find one that isn't mainstream because most of the time a book to movie adaptation often entails some sort of widely known recognition.

    I'm not sure if this movie is mainstream I think it is but you can try "Red Dragon" and "The Silence of the Lambs" they're both movie adaptations of the novel of the same title written by Thomas Harris. They're pretty well made so I think you'll enjoy them nonetheless.

    I agree. But I think both those movies and books are pretty much mainstream. The character of Hannibal has been an icon so I think it's not really lesser known. But I think it is not that well known with this generation.

  2. That doesn't make any sense. I mean sure it's going to be hard since there has to be some cultural differences but I don't see the point in that. It's kind of like racism in a way. If the writing you'll do requires you to write a different race then it's okay. Just because some know-it-all wrote an essay that doesn't mean it makes sense.

  3. I think it depends on how he story is told really. I think the goofiest monster could be terrifying if it's done right. But for me I think psychological thrillers are far more terrifying than that off monsters. Because monsters you can fight, there's a chance that you can win but when it comes to the psyche and sick mind there's not much more you can do about it, it's just pure dread.

  4. I despise people who uses horrible shortcuts like "Do U lyk 2g2 my plaz latur?". I always keep it clean with my texts, proper English, proper grammar proper everything.

    I can understand when people use shortcuts when they're walking or driving while texting because you can't really focus on texting if you're doing those things but if you're going to text me like that everyday then you're better off calling me because I'm not going to respond to that text.

  5. Well that's funny. I don't really feel any stress when it comes to exams, maybe because I don't care much because for the subject and my grades or the exam doesn't really have a huge consequence. But if you know what you're doing and you know for a fact that you studied the things you're supposed to then there's not point stressing it out.

    But I had a friend once, in English class we had this very long exam. About an hour in the exam he stood up from his chair cupping his nose and there was droplets of blood all over his answer sheet.

  6. I haven't read that much classic books but I did read Dracula and I think it's as classic as you can get with horror books at least. I don't really like reading classics that much because I was born reading modern and contemporary books so I feel like a lot of the cliche in the classics ruin it for me for all the wrong reasons.

  7. I find book reviews to be both a good thing and a bad thing. Since almost all of us can do a review now it's sometimes hard to determine which reviews are legit and which aren't.

    I personally check on the ratings first and then I read individual reviews but for the most part if a book is rated 3 stars below I pretty much skip it altogether.

  8. The cover is the books first strike at getting your attention so if the book cover fails to get your attention then the chance of it being purchased is going to be less and less. I personally wouldn't pick a book with a bad cover not unless the reviews said it's a good read.
