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 the plot in anyway. He needs to stay and help or at least meet Alec already. Yeah I just don't understand why he is leaving.


I love the actress playing Izzy. She is stunning and very close to what I see when I picture her. It's just the writing... like in the bedroom scene with Simon and her Jace lines... the way the writers wrote it, makes it sound like she has a huge crush on Jace which is just weird to me. They need to give her better lines! The actress has such potential! 


The Institute bothers me so much, still does. I will never ever like that change. Also, I can't remember very well, but Hodge didn't get hurt when he spoke of the Circle and stuff in the books right? I don't think he did. Why add that? It does nothing to further the plot either. 


Okay the real thing that bothered me this episode was Clary's necklace. So if she touches it, it shows her where Dot is? What? Also, who is Dot? She's still not really done much. Seriously though, that necklace.... what is the propose? Ugh. Also, this may be kind of mean but I laughed my butt off when I saw the actress playing Clary trying to run in those high heels. They should just give her normal shoes, or maybe something she can actually run in. I'm not sure who called the shot for her to wear those high heels that she clearly can't run in very well. Though I'm not picking on the actress, I sure as hell couldn't run in those shoes either. I'd look just as silly. 


So I guess that's really it for this episode. I will admit that I just skimmed it. After the first episode I just felt so disheartened. But as I said before, this episode was better than the first. So hopefully they keep getting better and better and then the show will be good. 


I will leave you with my favorite line from the episode, said none other than Jace. Well, if you want to call him that.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless.

So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,
