Pizzaface Restaurant Review

So yesterday I went to Pizzaface, which has recently opened a branch in my town. They currently have only three places (two in Brighton, one in Worthing) but I am so hoping they continue expanding as they are awesome!

Firstly, the layout was great. It’s mostly wooden and I like the design. It is also bigger than you first expect. I didn’t actually go into the toilets myself but my mum remarked that they were wonderful.

The menu had so many options. Whether you’re a meat-eater, vegetarian, vegan, or even want a pizza with fish on, there’s something for you! There were several vegan choices which made me happy.

The waitress was so attentive and thoughtful. She asked if we wanted water first and made sure to let us know that our orders could be switched around as we liked. I just had a vegan Margherita (without having to bring in my own cheese!!) and some vegan garlic bread, which I shared with my mum. She had a vegetarian pizza called The Woodsman, which she added anchovies to.

Her pizza cost £10 and mine cost £7 (but would have been £6 if I wasn’t a vegan), and the garlic bread and drinks were cheap too. It was £23 altogether and we made sure to give a big tip.

The food itself was lovely! My cheese melted great, just like normal cheese, and it tasted amazing. It was massive as well, for £7!? My mum said hers was good too. We had plenty of water if our drinks weren’t enough and the garlic bread was wonderful too.

We were so pleased with the service and the food, which is something so rare, that I just couldn’t help recommending this place to anyone who lives in Sussex. I will definitely be going there again!

We even got two vegan mints to end the evening and a lovely talk about the vegan and non-vegan ice creams offered, which they change around every 4 – 5 weeks, hence no menu for them.

Game Review: Life is Strange

*Slight spoiler warning*

So, this game was such a massive trend amongst the Steam community that I just had to give it a shot. And I was not disappointed!

The first thing I just have to talk about is the sound track — it is so beautiful and wow and everything and I just love it! Honestly, it is the best game soundtrack I have possibly ever heard.

The graphics are pretty nice too, but the main thing I need to get at is how brilliant the story is.

This game is split into five episodes. You play the game as Max, a nerdy, aspiring photographer who’s just a little bit nosy. She finds out she has these crazy rewind powers and the ability to literally change time. It’s more than just some superhero story though; some terrible stuff goes on at Blackwell. A missing girl, a suicide attempt, and later, the discovery of the dark room…

It’s a game where your choices do matter. They can change a lot of the story but, ultimately, you discover that there’s one thing that cannot be changed: destiny. It was such an emotional thing too. Like, when you discover who the real psychopath is. That’s pretty darn shocking.

To be honest, I would love for the company who made this game to make so many more games like this because they are so brilliant. This game was brilliant. It was so moving and the story was the best part.

I wish I had rewind powers, to be honest. That’d be cool.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness [Book Review]

So, I finished this book last night and I just had to write a review for it! It was astonishing! It’s the last YA book by Patrick Ness that I’ve read, meaning that I’ve read all of his YA books and so I don’t have any left to read. 😦

‘A Monster Calls’ is about monsters and it’s more of a psychological thing than a physical thing; even though the monsters are very much present, it’s sort of to do with the monsters that Conor, the main character, hides within himself, and is really intriguing. It’s a really sad story, in all honesty, and I felt my heart sink at the end of it.

It’s wonderfully illustrated too though, and the pictures really add to the story. The story probably wouldn’t have the same feel without those illustrations. They definitely add to the words surrounding them.

I had strong emotions about the characters too, getting annoyed at Conor sometimes because Patrick Ness is the best author at creating realistic, flawed characters. Without giving too much away, I will say that Conor definitely grows throughout the novel, despite other aspects of his life being crushed. The monster makes him see and that is the real beauty of the story. Conor is blinded by his hatred of himself but then he realises that there’s something more important… something that can make him see… This is with the monster’s help, of course.

I am just filled with love for this story! I wasn’t surprised, though, as it is by my favourite author. I can’t think of anything to criticise in this tale of relationships, truth, and realisation.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

I would love book suggestions too. 🙂

Thank you,
