Film Recommendations – Lord of the Rings

I know Lord of the Rings is a trilogy of films that I should have watched years ago but only recently have I given into my boyfriend’s request and actually watched these films with him. As must as I would like to tell him I didn’t like them I couldn’t I had to admit that I actually enjoyed them, and they may now even be some of my favourite films that I have watched.

I am not sure what put me off watching them in the first place, perhaps it was the hype that followed them that made me think they wouldn’t be able to live up to the hype or maybe I just thought I wouldn’t enjoy them. Part of me wishes I had watched them sooner but the majority of me is glad I waited because I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed them as much if I had watched them as soon as they came out.

My boyfriend of course is extremely happy that I liked the films and has now given me the hobbit to watch, which so far, I am not that impressed with. I know a lot of people like the hobbit, but I just cannot not get into it like Lord of the Rings. I am going to perservere we The Hobbit for another couple of days but after that I may have to give up for now and perhaps try again in the future.

The scenery is the Lord of the Rings films is just immense and I know need to go to New Zealand. I have always wanted to go there but now that interest has increased. I almost liked the films that much that I could quite easily watch them again already.

If you haven’t watch them already and are late to the party like my then I would highly recommend watching these films.

Audible

I have recently been introduced to Amazon’s Audible; my boyfriend started to use it and at first I wasn’t sold on it. But once I got over being stubborn and gave it a try I absolutely love it.
I am not a massive reader – well that’s an understatement. I cannot actually remember that last time I read a book from start to finish. I have always been jealous of those who can hold there concentration in order to finish a book. I used to always try to read a book but after a chapter or two I would get distracted by something and then I would never end up going back to finish the book. Nowadays I barely even try to read a book unless my boyfriend recommends it and even then it will take me about a year to get through it.
One Sunday afternoon I decided to give Audible a try and I haven’t look back since. So far I am on my 5th book and I have only had it a couple of weeks. There are so many books to choose from and it is so easy to use.
You are able to try it for free for a month which is what I am currently doing it but if after the month I am still as in love with it as I am now I will be continuing to pay the monthly fee for it. In your free month trial you are given 1 credit which allows you to download one book to listen to. However once you have finished the book or if you don’t like the book you can refund it and then choose another book.
I really enjoy learning new things but for quite a while this has been through the internet and not through books. There are so many informative books out there and audible is making them more accessible than ever before. I often select a book and listen to it while I am doing other tasks for example I am listening to it while I am writing this blog.
Some of the books that I have listen to so far have been:-
– The Subtle Art of not giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
– Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
– 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote for Chaos by Jordan Peterson
I have thoroughly enjoyed all of these books and learnt a lot from all of them. Once you start to read a couple of books you get recommended books often a lot of which I have never heard of before.
I would highly recommend using Audible and I am going to continue to listen to as many books as I can.
