Shadowhunters Episode 3 - Short Review

I think this is going to be my last review for this series. I was hoping that I would have more good things to say and then I'd get to fangirl over everything but I don't want to keep harping on the same things or keep ragging on this TV show. I will say last nights episode was.... just too different. I also hate to say that it's forgettable, I watched the episode last night and have already forgotten pretty much all of it. Sad. I understand that when you adapt books to screen that things need to change. This is just too much. I am glad that each episode does seem to get a little better. I'm not sure if that's just because everything is growing on me though.  Anyway, I may tune into this show in a few episodes to see if it's gotten any better but this is about all I can take when it comes to something I love being so abused and torn apart. I will still say that I like the movie better than this.  I'm going to abadon this ship and just watch something more in

Illuminae - Review

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded. The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit. But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again. Told through a fascinating dossier of h

Shadowhunters Episode 2 - Review

So here we are with the second episode. Before I jump into anything, I do want to say that I think this episode is better than the first. That doesn't mean I love this episode and think it's great, because I don't. There are things that are still bothering me, like Clary and Jace. It just mean that this one is better than the train wreck of the first one.  So I want to start off with I still wish they would replace Jace and Clary. Jace is too stiff and rather boring while Clary... her words make her seem like she really cares but her face... she just seems a little bland in the face when she needs to be showing emotion. This actress just isn't the badass that I see as Clary.  I said in my rant that I love the guy playing Luke and that is still very true, I'm just wondering if their budget was so low they couldn't show Luke as a werewolf. Or are they saving it? Because we got to hear the noises. Why in the world is Magnus leaving!? That doesn't help further t

Shadowhunters! Episode 1 Rant

So I plan to do this after every episode of Shadowhunters. I love this series so much and I want them to do it right. So I'm going to kind of recap/review every single episode. I will be posting them every Wednesday. So be sure to check it out and join me, come discuss your thoughts, what you liked, what you didn't. I do want to warn you all though, there will be spoilers. So be careful if you've not watched the first episode yet. I want to start off by saying that my thoughts aren't the most popular. I was checking Twitter out last night and most people loved the first episode. They were so excited and couldn't wait for more. But I didn't... it had a few okay moments that I liked but to me.... I just don't understand how hard it is to take an AMAZING book series and make it come to life? I mean, the movie was better than the first episode and the movie was kind of awful. Am I along in my thoughts about this show? I've not seen the second episode yet, I

December Wrap Up!

I did not read many books this month, only three. I've been so busy with my now full time job, Christmas, classes, my father's birthday, and getting sick. So I've not got to blog or even read much at all. I've not read a single book so far this year and it's sad. It's caused me to get into a reading slump as well. I have so much I want to read but I look at the book and just sigh. It makes me feel like why bother? I'll just have to stop reading and go to work. It would take me a whole week or more to read a book and by that point I'm afraid I've forgotten most of the beginning.  I've just got to find that good balance to reading and balancing mundane life. If any of you guys do the same, give me some tips in the comments! I could use them. Anyway, off to the three books I read in December. Also tell me what you guys read this part month below in the comments. Also, I've missed you all! I've got a lot to catch up on so be looking out for m

Alice in Murderland Volume 1 - Review

Now! Let the "Mad Tea Party" begin! The Kuonji clan, owner of one of the world's top conglomerates, has a tradition: Once a month, family members attend a "Mad Tea Party." But at the latest gathering, the nine Kuonji siblings in attendance are shocked to hear a pronouncement issue from the lips of their mother, Olga- "I'd like you children to now fight one another to the death!" As chaos erupts, Stella, the fourth daughter, loses all reason, and suddenly a whole new Stella, complete with blonde hair and blue dress, comes out to play-!! Author: Kaori Yuki  Genre: Gothic Horror (Manga) Format: Hardcover Release Date: 06/23/2015  Publisher: Yen Press  Manga Breakdown  So this manga starts off with a huge murder scene that makes no sense until later in the volume. Then we cut to our main character; Stella, in a classroom. She asks to leave suddenly because she had a family tea party to attend, one they have every month. Her classmates chalk it up to he
