Outlander Season 1

Claire has just got through World War 2 and is back together with her husband Frank. They decide to take a holiday before he begins his teaching job. Though nothing goes as planned and Claire finds herself in 18th Century Scotland. 

This season is a wild ride! It never slows down. From the moment Claire is transported back back in time. I feel so bad for her but damn if she is not one of the strongest female leads I have ever seen. The actress who plays her is beyond perfect. Honestly, the whole cast is perfectly chosen for their roles. I love them all.

So my favorite parts of this season were... all of it! But getting into details, I love the romance between Jamie and Claire. They are so perfect together and it makes me feel bad for frank because I do like him too. I also just want to put out there... am I the only one who's not crushing hard on Sam? I mean sure he's hot but... I don't know, maybe he's just not my cup of tea.

I really loved the whole witch trial part of the season. I knew something was up with Geillis! I had a feeling she was an Outlander like Claire and it was so cool that I was right! I just wish we could have seen more of her and it would've been nice if her and Claire had talked about all this before the trial. 

My heart went out for Frank during the first part of the season when we got pieces of him. I couldn't help but cry at his pain. I wouldn't ever want to be in his place. 

Of course I loved the wedding scene that I had been waiting so long for! It was perfect and glorious and just awesome. I loved all the Highlanders and their sense of humor. I also love how many times that Claire stumped them. They did not know what to do with a modern girl like her! I loved that she never backed down from them. Like I said before, she is such a strong character. So much love for her. I think I'm more infatuated with her than Jamie. 

What killed me the most was the last two episodes... poor Jamie. I cried so hard watching what he went through just to protect the woman he loved. I could never imagine having to go through something like that and coming out the same person I was before. I really felt for him. He'd been though such a lot in his short life. 

Also that bombshell of Claire being pregnant! I didn't see that coming! I was blown away from it. I'm so excited to see where this goes now that they are going to France. I love France so this is going to be awesome for me to watch. I also need to read the book, I got it from the library and can't wait to jump into it. 

So what was your favorite part/episode? 

If you've not watching this show yet then I suggest you get to it now! It's freaking great!

(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. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. 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

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,

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
