Shadowhunter Sunday - How Are Thou Fallen - EP 7

Well my favorite Iron Sister is evil... great. Not.

Magnus and Alec are still my favorites in this whole show which is weird because they are second in the books but these two actors are just so great and I love every scene they are in and wish they were in more. 

Also, I'm a little pissed with Clary for getting all goggly eyed for Simon when she saw him without his shirt. So it's like she only noticed him then? The guy is hot and sweet girl, you're stupid for just seeing that now. Is this how they are going to play in the love triangle bit? 

I feel so badly for Izzy, she's really struggling with Yin Fin and now she's pushing Clary away for not telling her about the Rune she created. Which I don't blame her for. Izzy has been there for Clary and then Clary doesn't trust her?

Also, I hate to say this but I really dislike TV show Jace more and more. He's just so different from book Jace and even movie Jace. I don't care that they made changes from the book, I'm not that kind of person but I just don't like TV Jace. Sorry. 

Magnus is adorable and I love how he's falling hard for Alec. I also love how awesome Magnus is and how well he can see through Izzy. Also, he said 'Jem'. They fucking mentioned Jem!!!!!!! Sorry I will try and reign myself in now. It's just so hard when anyone from TFD are mentioned. 

Izzy really needs help, she can't keep going this way. I hate seeing her this way. I love Izzy and she doesn't deserve this. This show is starting to rip my heart out. 

I am loving Maya and Simon and I think they are cute as can be. I also actually liked how Jace and Simon were at the bar. I don't know why as they were pretty mean to each other but it felt very book like and real. I liked it.

I really did like how smart Clary was with Luke's sister, it's one of the only times she'd actually being smart and I just love it when she is. Smart Clary is the best Clary.

"Dazzle me." HAHAHAHAHAHA OMG! Best line in this whole episode. It came from Jace, I can't even believe it. 

Best use of the stupid shape shifting rune ever. Jace turning into Simon just to prove a point. This whole scene is just too funny, I couldn't stop laughing my butt off. 

Clary is now being stupid again, how could she do that to Luke? Not Luke.... ugh. I bet this blows up in her face. I hope it doesn't but I just don't see this ending very well. Running off with Valentine follower is never a good idea. 

I freaking knew that Luke would go and get Jace, so he can save Clary and bring them closer together and blah blah blah. 

Clary hears Angels now? Yeah...

I love Simon and Maya, I love how good she is for him. I love their friendship. 

OMG..... the soul sword and the vision and I just can't right now. Alec and Magnus had sex and the Jace and Clary saved the angel and my mind is really blown right now.

Hello, I Love You - Mini Review

A teen escapes to a boarding school abroad and falls for a Korean pop star in this fun and fresh romantic novel in the vein of Anna and the French Kiss.

Grace Wilde is running—from the multi-million dollar mansion her record producer father bought, the famous older brother who’s topped the country music charts five years in a row, and the mother who blames her for her brother’s breakdown. Grace escapes to the farthest place from home she can think of, a boarding school in Korea, hoping for a fresh start.

She wants nothing to do with music, but when her roommate Sophie’s twin brother Jason turns out to be the newest Korean pop music superstar, Grace is thrust back into the world of fame. She can't stand Jason, whose celebrity status is only outmatched by his oversized ego, but they form a tenuous alliance for the sake of her friendship with Sophie. As the months go by and Grace adjusts to her new life in Korea, even she can't deny the sparks flying between her and the KPOP idol. 

Soon, Grace realizes that her feelings for Jason threaten her promise to herself that she'll leave behind the music industry that destroyed her family. But can Grace ignore her attraction to Jason and her undeniable pull of the music she was born to write? Sweet, fun, and romantic, this young adult novel explores what it means to experience first love and discover who you really are in the process. 

Book Breakdown 

This book reminds me a lot of Anna and the French Kiss, without all the hot bits. This book is so clean I'd say any age can read it. We follow Grace, a girl from Nashville TN, which made me love her right off the bat as Nashville is my hometown and I miss it so damn much.

Grace decides she needs to get away from all the drama and pain going through her family and so she goes to a boarding school in South Korea. Yes, South Korea, home of the wonderful K-Pop. I've never seen a book deal with K-Pop so when I saw that, I was even more eager to read it.

The idea of this book and parts of it are 5 star worthy but Grace... the more I read about her, she'd really kind of a bitch at first but she does slowly get better. I still disliked her at times though. Jason has some issues but he still was a likable person. I did feel like all the other characters weren't as well flushed out. They really felt like background characters to me. 

So this book isn't awful by any means but it could have been fantastic! If you like cute and clean romance stories, this is for you. Also you get a glimpse of Korea and I have always wanted to visit Korea so this was great for me.

50/50 Friday - World Building

This meme is hosted by myself and the wonderful Laura from Blue Eye Books.

What is 50/50 Friday? 
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. 

Topic for the Week
Most/Least Intricately Built World

There is so many good choices for both of these and it took me a while before deciding on only one for each. I will also probably get some flack for this but these are my opinions and if you disagree that is fine. Just no hate please.

Most - Throne of Glass
I love the world that Sarah J Mass as created and I fill it is so flushed out and it feels like a real place. I can't wait to see how how much more she will flush it out when The Chaol novel comes out. Even though he's my least favorite character, I love this world so much that I'm sure Sarah will not disappoint me! 

Least - Twilight

I enjoy this series not as much as I used to but I still like them. I just think everything could have been flushed out better. Yes, it's not bad but really it was just giant info drops for a few chapters and then that's it. I wanted more about this world that touches ours. She could have expanded so much. 

Topic for Next Week
Best/Worst Book Read in February
