The Order (Netflix) - TV Talk


I actually had no idea this was coming to Netflix. I was just flipping through one day when my daughter was in school and my partner was at work. It looked cool, it had witches and werewolves and the look of romance and so I clicked on it. Boy, am I so damn glad I did!

This show is freaking amazing! I've not been this into a TV show since The Haunting of Hill House! I don't really get into TV or movies the way I do books so it's rare when I watch something that just sucks me in. The Order is one of those shows!

So The Order starts with Jack Morton getting into Belgrave University with a plan to get into the secret society that his father rules. Why? Well, he wants revenge for the death of his mother. Things don't go as smoothly as one would think, with a hot girl and werewolves entering the picture, everything gets messy fast. Leading to so many wonderful episodes. 

There was one moment that had me blinking twice and just confused as to why that needed to happen the way it did. It really felt drawn out and needless, like filler in an anime. But it was just the one moment with Edward and a guy from the Vade Maecum but besides for that moment, this show is solid and entertaining and just freaking awesome.

The actors are really good, I liked all of them and thought they did a great job. I love the look of the show, the sets were great, the special effects were top notch and the script is good. It's really made for the 'young adult' audience. So, this show is right up our alley!

It's also been compared to Riverdale and Sabrina, so if you like those shows, this one is another that you'll enjoy. I don't like Riverdale anymore but I still love The Order. So if you have access to Netflix, check this out! You'll thank me later.

(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

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,
