THOR: THE DARK WORLD REVIEW


SPOILERS



First and foremost this movie was awesome. Of all the superheros Marvel has I have to say that Thor is in my top 5 male superheroes that I honestly LOVE and will spend money to go and see. Thor played by the awesome Chris Hemsworth is once again out not just to say Earth and his lady love Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), but all of the nine realms in this latest installment of the Norse Gods awesomeness. In this movie we meet a new foe of course the dark elf Malekith played by Christopher Eccleston (You might know him from a little BBC series call Doctor Who the 9th Doctor). Malekith sets out to bring back darkness to a world of light.

When in search of Thor, Jane finds an ancient evil said to be destroyed by Odin's father, but it isn't so. In a race against time Thor, reunites with troublesome brother to save the universe from darkness. 
This movie is well worth the money...I sat there in awww of the special effects, the magnificent shot of Asgard. If you haven't see Thor: The Dark World yet...You should. Why are you still reading this? Go and by your ticket NOW.

NEW COVER FOR LATEST PROJECT-PRACTICALLY FICTION

So I wanted to share with you the new cover for my latest project. I know what you're saying "but La Luna or Shamara or Mrs. Davis, you didn't finish you other projects yet." OH WELL I'll get to it but I was so excited to be working on this (and you're saying what is THIS??) a compilation of all the things I've written so far. All the short stories I've posted and some of my other writings. So here it is :


So I don't know when I am going to be finished with this since I am backed up with a lot of my projects right now and there are new ones that are just buzzing around in my brain waiting for their turn to see themselves on paper. But for now I am just grabbing everything and putting it all together for your reading pleasure. So basically I am placing everything in one place to make sure that you can find whatever work I've done outside of my books. I have six weeks left of my Masters program and after that I am on the job hunt but I am free to do more writing, so I will be pushing hard to get everything done by the new year so look out 2014. But this should be done by the end of November.

UPDATE FROM LA LUNA and New RUSTY FISCHER BOOK



Hi Readers,

I just wanted to give you a quick  update...As you can see the sight hasn't been really updated as much as I use to update it, that's because I have been student teaching. For those that don't know what student teaching is, that is when they give you the student a chance to get in front of a class and teach whatever grade level you are getting your degree in for 1/2 a semester of full semester and gain the experience you need to become a teacher. 

https://dwtr67e3ikfml.cloudfront.net/bookCovers/5d0be0fd119598e1c89ba3a8d6059304b015c21cSo far I have finished 1/2 of my student teaching and I am currently on my second half here at a high school in Brooklyn, NY. I must say that I had a great experience with the students at BECS which is the Junior High I started at. I learned a lot about myself there as a teacher and I will never forget it or them. But anyway back to the site. I am hoping to at least update the site every two days or so with new books for you to check out and to let you know about any new book releases from me (Shamara Davis). Make sure to stop by my Facebook sight and look for information regarding my books or just to see info about the books I've already published at 


I hope that you all enjoy whatever your currently reading and I look forward to linking you up with great novels, short stories, and other things of interest. 

Before I go here is another book that you should check out: HOMECOMING: A WEREWOLF THANKSGIVING STORY BY RUSTY FISCHER

Description

It’s Thanksgiving and all Sarah and her Mom want to do is celebrate the holiday in peace. But that peace is shattered when Sarah’s sister, Shannon, shows up, a fugitive from the The Research Facility for Lycan Readjustment and Reprogramming, better known as Werewolf Rehab. Just like that, Thanksgiving dinner turns into a fight for survival.

I must say in advance that people will be annoyed with the lead character because me being who I am I kept saying why doesn't he say something, why doesn't he do something, but when you look back at it you see that he is just a kid that no one really pays much mind too and he doesn't get the support from those around them that he should get. But going to a different environment he finds this support in people the rest of his community looks down on. 

This was a great book to read. I started reading it because I had to read it with the 8th grade class that I was leading, but I finished the book in advance to create questions for them to answer and test their knowledge of the reading. I must say that I really liked it because it taught all kinds of lessons, such as sticking up for yourself, speaking out when you see something that is unjust done, and doing the right thing and sticking up for people you consider your friends. I think that anyone that wants to show their students that it isn't always easy doing to right thing, but in the end it pays off should read/teach this book.
