Let’s Talk About Infinity Wars!

Greetings Earthlings and today I’m talking about Infinity Wars!

MV5BMTc0MjA1OTMxOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzM1NDcyNDM@._V1_

Ah Infinity Wars the movie that we have all been waiting. We have been waiting so long for these characters to come to together and it’s finally happening and I have never been so scared in my whole life for a movie. I have been worried for movies before this is like a whole new level for me. I’ve waited so long for this and not that it is happening I’m so scared! When the first teaser was dropped I wasn’t too scared because I thought that they would be making this into two parts.

Whenever I panicked about this movie I would just tell myself that I didn’t have to worry that much because there was going to be a sequel. Then I would stop worrying because everything would be fine. I was excited because I love all these characters and these last Marvel movies such as Spiderman: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnorak, and Black Panther have all been amazing. So why shouldn’t this one be amazing? More stuff about the movie kept being released and the date was moved up and I was excited. Then the second trailer dropped and I watched it and I had never been so excited and there was so much in and it was wonderful!

There was such happening in this trailer and I was excited! The characters had more interactions and there were so many scenes and it was so exciting! Doctor Strange looked so cool, Peter looked amazing, I love the scene between Star Lord and Iron Man where he is saying that he needs to do the pan because it would work better! It was just so good.  But then seconds after I watched the trailer I was so excited my dad sends me an article saying that Infinity Wars would only be one movie and my nerves got too big real fast. Basically I’m now so scared and excited and worried and wanting more! So I excited to see what had next but I’m terrified. There is going to be a 4 avengers movie and Captain Marvel will be in it and she looks great but I’m still worried about everything because it’s not a second part to Infinity Wars. It will be related but not a direct sequel and I’m just worried about how all of it will be handled.

That is it for my Infinity Wars post! I will definitely be seeing this movie and will be doing a review on it when it comes out. I’m excited and I’m scared and I’m hoping that it will be good. Are you guys excited to see this movie? Are you scared? I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure to look out for more coming your way soon. I have a discussion post coming out next week which I found very interesting and I hope you do it. Infinity wars comes out April 27 and you bet your ass I’m going to see. I hope you guys see it!

YOU HAVE TO WATCH STAR VS THE FORCES OF EVIL!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about Star vs. the Forces of Evil!

r_starvstheforcesofevil_hero_359432e3

*i couldn’t find a trailer so here is the opening

+ A: Perfect story with get characters and fantastic plot line.

I don’t know why I’m making this review. I watched Star in Fall of 2017 and I thought about doing a review but I was so stressed around that time that I didn’t do it. But now I’m still a little stressed but less stressed then normal and I’ve been rewatching a couple episodes and I’ve been looking at the summary for episodes of season three and I’m really emotional so we are going to talk about it. I have only have seen season two so I will mainly be talking about those two seasons. I might talk about season three from my nerves to want might happened and from what I’ve heard has happened and how I’m very emotional. I started watching Star because I had just finished Gravity Falls and I wanted something like that because I needed a new show to watch and I remember people had been talking about this show on Tumblr so I decided to start watching and just like Gravity Falls I didn’t expect to love this show as much as I did nor did I expect to make me cry.

Man kid shows are a lot more intense then the shows I watched when I was little. Seriously! So if you don’t know Star Vs the Forces of Evil is a show about a Princess named Star who when she is fourteen is gifted a magical wand that is passed down to the heir of the Thrones and they are always women! Such is so great! It’s like Buffy but with more magic wands and it’s a family thing. After she sets some things on fire, her parents send her to Earth where she can continuing her training cause there is no magic on Earth. On Earth she mets Marco Diaz who she moves in with him and his family and Marco helps her with Earth things while Star gives him what he wanted which was some adventure in his life and together they fight monsters that come after Star so that they can steal her magical wand.

Honestly if you like anime or cartoons or just a fun show that has an impact then I would highly recommend this show. This show has everything you want friendship, strong female characters, a male character who doesn’t suck and is so funny, traveling through dimensions, a super interesting storyline, and from what I know season three gets more intense so enjoy that fun season while it last friends. Star is so funny and adorable and yes she made not understand some things sometimes but she cares so much about her friends and her family so when it comes down to it she will take care of them because she loves them. Marco is such a wonderful friend and one of my favorite characters I love him and will protect him with my life! Also Starco forever. I think that it is for my spoilery free section and if you haven’t watched Star vs the Forces of Evil then you should leave if you don’t want to get spoiled! BYE!

SPOILERS

I said it before I never expect to love this show as much as I do. I thought that this show was just so cute and I loved the relationship and the characters are so wonderful and entertaining that I was having such a good time. But then Toffee just shows up and I was like noo. This is my happy show please but make my happy show sad by hurting one of my characters! When he took Marco and Star had to break her wand I started crying because it was sad seeing my baby girl crying. Then the hug between after they discover the wand it was so beautiful and wonderful. I ship them so much! Starco forever. After that episode I was just thinking maybe this show will go back to be happy but then season two came around and it was like FUCK NO BITCH YOU CONTINUE CRYING! The whole time I was watching season two I had this feeling of something is going to happen and it is going to be bigger then last time.

Honestly I didn’t know how I felt about Star and Marco being a couple that first season because I thought they would have been cute but they have such a good friendship that I don’t want that to be ruined. Then season two came along and now I’m just like there is no other ship that isn’t Starco! STARCO IS CANCON! That episode where Marco gets locked in the closet and he has to figure out her secret to get out and he finds the journal that says her feelings on Marco and that was when I was like ‘Shit! She has a crush on Marco! What’s gonna happen?’ and then nothing like major happened for the next couple of episodes. But then the Bon Bon the birthday clown episode came and Marco gets a date with Jackie and Star gets jealous and spies on them on their date and I was just oh no things are about to get real intense up in here! Then Star mets 30 year old Marco and is super attracted to him and I was like who can blame you but then I was like   Star thinks Marco is hot and you can’t fight me on this!

We then have the Sleepover episode and the truth box says that one of them is lying about who they have a crush on but then they get into a whole thing and the box gets destroyed and thrown away. But then at the end of the episode Star screams Marco’s name and the box just goes ‘Yes Star has a crush on-‘ and then it crushed again! I was just like what! You can’t do this to me! Then the FUCKING JUST FRIENDS EPISODE! OMG! I just want Star to be happy and she just seemed so upset and I just wanted to protect her and give her love! If you don’t think she was upset then fight me because she basically destroyed a sign. Then comes Face the Music with Patrick Stump and he sings a song about the book being lost and Star having a thing for Marco and again I just wanted to comfort her because SHE DOESN’T DESERVE THIS PAIN! THEN STARCRUSHED HAPPENED AND I WAS CRYING SO MUCH! What is with this show and sad season finales?

The two are both awkward around each other ever since the song day happened and after a while they finally make up but then her mom tells her she has to leave because Toffee has returned and she finally confesses her feelings then leaves. He chase her up the stairs to talk to her but then the room is empty and then the credits is just silence as it shows the Diaz house and the place where Star’s room used to be and I just started crying because she left and she told Marco she liked him but before they could talk about she left and AHHHHHH! How could this show do this to me? I thought that this show would be cute and fun and it is that but then it just had to go and break me. I love Star and Marco and I just want them to be together. If they don’t get together I’m going to be so sad. I like Tom. He is fun character and I enjoy his friendship with Marco but I don’t like him being with Star. I’m sorry!

I don’t want Marco with Kelly either or Janna or Jackie…. I’m sorry if you disagree but this is just my opinion. I do think that Janna and Tom would be cute and I only think that because I read about it in a fanfiction and I thought that was cute. I haven’t see any episodes of season three but I have read some of the episode and I got so emotional that I started crying. I know it seems dumb but I love it so much.

That’s my post of Star Vs the Forces of Evil! Or aka why Starco is best post. I hope you enjoyed this post! If you haven’t watched this show, I highly recommend it! IF you have watched it then what do you think? Do you love it? Do you ship Starco? I hope so because I do and if they don’t become canon then I’m going to scream! Have you guys watched this show? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way.

The Case For Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing the Case For Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro!

33810737

+ A: Perfect story with get characters and fantastic plot line.

“She looked like a whisper made real.”

*yes this is from last of august but i couldn’t find a quote for this book so deal

I have a review for the first book which you can read here and I also reviewed the second book which you can read here. If you follow me on twitter then you know that this series has taken over my life. I tweet at Brittany Cavallaro like every day I’m surprised she hasn’t blocked me yet because I’m probably wasting her time. I’ve been having dreams about these books. I had a dream that Brittany sent me an arc of Question of Holmes and when I woke up I was really sad. Every time I listen to a song all I can think about is Jamie and Charlotte. I really want this to become a tv show staring Harrison Osterfield and me because I’m insane and self centered. Last of August had me shook and I was so excited to get to the next book. But I didn’t have any money and I had already brought like fifty new books so I told myself that I would wait until I got it from the library.

I was going to do that. I was like slowly moving up every day but then my dad and I made a deal that if I worked out three times a week then he could give me some cash. So I did and I got my money and I got my ass to target and I brought a Case For Jamie and I went home and I read it then I finished it and then I didn’t know I felt about it so I reread it again. Basically I loved this book it ruined me and brought me so many other emotions and I love it. I did have so issues which is why Last of August is currently holding it’s place at the top of my favorite in this series. If you don’t know Last of August ended with Milo, Charlotte’s brother, shooting August and killing him and then telling Charlotte that it’s her mess and she should deal with it. Case for Jamie starts with Jamie and Charlotte being separated as Jamie is at school finishing his senior year and has no clue where Charlotte is.

Honestly this book reminded me of Gilmore Girls season six where the two main characters are separated and even though it is still good, it’s not the same and it can be kind of annoying at time as you want the characters to get back together and stop being stubborn. I loved reading about Jamie and Charlotte on their separate journeys but I wanted them to reunite and work things out. But just like Gilmore Girls season six, the separation was needed for them to grow as characters. Honestly one thing I love about this series is how to turns YA tropes on it’s head. For the description this series seems to follow the ‘Out of this world girl’ and the grounded boy who loves her and this series shows how unhealthy that can be. In the first two books, Jamie gets mad whenever Charlotte does something that he doesn’t think is right and it’s so heartbreaking. There is this line in Last of August that always breaks my heart and it’s “Jamie loves me because finds the world boring. The world loves him which it makes it boring.” This book is Jamie coming to turns with the fact that Charlotte isn’t some hero or icon for him to admire, she is a person and he is going to get to know start seeing her as that.

Another thing is that it shows how not everyone makes the best choices and one choice might be wrong in another’s eyes but to them they have a reason for doing that. So many people are sleeping on this series and I don’t know why! GO READ THESE BOOKS! There is a girl that was attacked in the first book named Elizabeth and she just disappeared after that and I kind of wondered what happened to her but then we start this book Jamie is dating her and I got upset. I knew that Jamie was still into Charlotte and that he wanted to move on but he shouldn’t have been in a relationship right now because he was using her to forget the past and she didn’t deserve to go through that. I was scared that she would be the mean girlfriend who gets in the way of the relationship but she turned out not to be. She called Jamie out on his shit and ended up being a good character. She’s like Mary.

Let’ talk about it because I always bring it up whenever I do a review for these book so the mental health part of this book and Jamie and Charlotte’s relationship. I said it before that I was scared this book would go down the ‘Love Cures Mental Health’ trope which I hate but it didn’t and I was so happy about that. From the emails at the end of the book with Jamie and Charlotte, she says that she is going to therapy and I was like ‘YES!’ because my girl has some issues that she needs to work out. Another thing I liked was the fact that they dressed that their relationship was unhealthy which I was so happy about. Before the epilogue and after Charlotte gets shot, they talk and Jamie tells her that their relationship isn’t great and it has a lot of problems. From their emails, it looks like they are taking a small break so that they can work things out so that they be together. That’s what I got from it. I think the final book will take place either the summer before they began college or we are jumping right to college. Even though a lot of my theories for this book weren’t correct I think I’m sticking with my original theories for the next book that it will end with Charlotte and Jamie getting engaged and that’s the question for Holmes. I think that the last line should be something that the last line of the first book like he always says yes.

Should i write this fanfiction? I think I should. Also I need like Milo and Charlotte to like work things out because I think that they could have a good relationship if they worked things out! I just want them to be happy! Also I think that Milo should get a boyfriend. That’s just me. This book broke my heart. I thought I was going to cry with every page. I loved that Charlotte got her own point of view because honestly I love her. She is my favorite character and with the first two books I loved the chapters where she gave her opinion on everything it was just so great. When I started this book, I just assumed that they weren’t talking because of what had happened at the end of book two but we then learn in this book that more stuff happened. Charlotte tried to get Jamie to take the fall and he got mad which then led to her taking the fall. It was just so heartbreaking to read and I didn’t see it coming. Another thing I loved was the flash backs that are in Charlotte’s pov and they were so amazing and sad and wonderful and the Holmes family needs to go to therapy.

Something I didn’t like was just how rushed the last couple chapters were. Like suddenly all these things were happening and I had got whip lash from everything happening so fast. There was just so much happening which was mainly why I reread this book because I needed to just reread what happened so that I could understand it a little better. Also because I love this book. I can’t believe that fucking Lucien Moriarty married Jamie’s mom like I didn’t see that coming. I thought we were just going to add a storyline where Jamie is going to have to deal with a step father which is sort what happened. When we met Milo after he runs away because you know he killed someone and he is described as having a beard and all I could think was Mycroft in the Final Problem with that weird fisherman beard.

tumblr_ojv2yeG5O21u81uqko1_500.gif

I want Milo and Charlotte to have a better relationship. When she said that he had never cared about her, I got so upset because he clearly does and why did she say that!! All I could think about was in Sherlock where Sherlock can just forgive his sister like that but still gave Mycroft a hard time even though his sister was much worse then him. I just want them to work things out. Can I have a spin off about Milo? Because even though we don’t know him that well I want to know him more. I’m glad that this wasn’t the final book because honestly I still think that there are some things that honestly need to be continued now. I wouldn’t have minded if this book was longer but honestly I think that it is better that we are getting a book. I feel like with that fourth book we can watch the characters grow more and get a satisfying ending.

I love this book. I didn’t have it’s problem but it did address a lot of things which I loved. It was amazing and I think that everyone should read these books. Have you guys read this book? If you have what did you think? Did you like it? I hope you guys liked because I thought it was great. I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure to look out for more coming your way soon. I like my next post is a Star vs the Forces of Evil because I love that show. You should follow my book club here and other social media links. I posted rants like this once a week every week.

Books, Movies, and Shows that made me cry!

Greetings Earthlings! So if you remember in like 2016 I did a post talking about the movies, shows, and books that made me cry. I’ve been wanting to redo that post mainly because I’ve cried watching a lot things since that post and I felt like I should do another one because it’s becoming a long list. I will be spoiling so look out! Let’s began!


Black Panther

Black_Panther_Poster

The most recent one on my list as I saw it today *today as in February 18. It was amazing and I want to watch it again because it was so good. IF you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend it. It’s my favorite movie of this year. But I cried after the second challenge and you think that T’Challa is died. I knew that he wasn’t die as the movie is about him but I was so mad at the movie for doing this and I was sad watching the affects of his ‘death’ on his family that I started crying. It wasn’t like a big cry but still I was real emotional.


 Gravity Falls

Six_strange_tales

Gravity Falls was that showed that I ever expected to love or break my heart. I started watching this show because I had seen some people talking about it and I needed a new show. Like Miraculous Ladybug I thought that this would be a fun show to watch and I spent the whole weekend watching it and I cried my eyes out. Season one was what I expected it to be but then I got to see two season and I cried almost every episode because they were so many emotions. The season finale broke my heart but at the same time it was lovely. It was just so amazing and wonderful. If you haven’t watched this show I highly recommend it.


Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

los_cover

I have a whole review talking about this book which you can read here and if you read that review then you know it fucking broke me. I had a lot of hype around Lord Of Shadows and my expectations were met. There are so many moments in this book to which I was having a break down but I think that the moment I had a metal down was around the end of the book. If this book had come out in a different time then I probably would have read it all in one night but this book came out in exam week which did not help me. I spent my whole week studying but in between breaks I read a little of this book. Then school ended for summer and I went up to my grandma’s for the weekend and all I did was read this book. I was tired and emotional so the more I read this book the more emotional I got and then I got to the point where I was crying. Then when I got to the end, I was in the middle of dinner with my cousins and I just sobbed. It was bad but this book was so good! I’m so excited for Queen of Air and Darkness.


 Logan

LOGAN_FINISH_01-1500x2222.jpg

I said it in my Spiderman post I cry watching superhero movies. I’ve seen this film twice and both times I’ve cried in the same fucking spot! If you don’t know this was the last Wolverine movie and so you have to expect somethings to happen but I did not expect to hit me as it did. It’s just an emotional movie and it was so great to watch and even though sometimes I have a probably with movies when they kill main leads but I thought that this one worked so well that I didn’t have a problem with that decision. It was just such a good film and I loved it so much.


Star vs. the Forces of Evil

DDmkfZxXYAASoOs

This show! Like Gravity Falls and Miraculous I didn’t not expect to love this show as much as I did. The first season was so cute and funny and then that fucking finale broke me! I didn’t expect it to make me cry as much as I did. It just shows how much Star and Marco care about each other and what they would do together. Then I got to season two and in the beginning it was like season one but somethings were different as there was more mystery and more things to be learned about the world. Then those last couple episodes fucking broke me! I started crying again! I love Star and Marco so much! With the song and him learning that she had a crush on him but he was with Jackie and then Toffee coming back and her having to leave. The show just ended with the house and seeing what was left from where Star was was just so sad. I haven’t watched season three  yet because they haven’t added it to Hulu and I don’t have cable but I was reading some of the summary and I’ve seen stuff on tumblr and I started tearing up. I’m not ready!!! Also I’ll be making a full review on this show because I love it.


They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

33385229

My review should be up already so I put it here. If you are wondering what this book is about look at the title and that will give some clue and then just go on goodreads and look up the summary because I don’t wanna cry no more! I cried reading this book because the relationship is so beautiful and wonderful and the whole experience of this book was just great. I loved so of the moments that happens before they die and then one of them died and I started tearing up and then other things happened and then another one died and I broke down because the book decided to fucking end! Then I reviewed book and I cried writing that review because I was thinking about everything that happened in this book and I just love it soo much! Favorite book of the year!


Spider-man: Homecoming

Spider-Man_Homecoming_poster_008

Again crying in superhero movies. I said I was going to cry watching it and I did. I have a review for this which you can read here and that was a lot of fun. This movie was amazing and I loved it and I cried. I mainly cried during one scene which was the scene where Peter is under a bunch of rocks and he is trying to get out. The scene was just so wonderfully acted, Tom Holland is an amazing actor and he is great in the rest of this film but he just shined in that scene. I was also freaking out because if you don’t know it’s a scene from the comics and my best friend Abby and who saw the movie with me and we were like silently screaming in the theater. It was a great time and I enjoyed it so much! You know I’m going to be a mess when Infinity War comes out.


Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

img_2718

I did a review for this one and no one liked it which I was pretty sad about because I really love this show and I loved writing that review which you can read here. This was the revival of Gilmore Girls and it had four movie long episodes and the last one Fall was my favorite and I cried almost the whole time. I cried when Lorelai called Emily and finally told her favorite Richard moment. I cried during the wedding with her and Luke’s wedding. I loved that the name of book was called Gilmore Girls and that she was going to write. I was not expecting that ending and it broke my heart that we never got more and I WANT MORE! I’ve only rewatched Fall once and I cried again because it’s just so good and sad and wonderful!


The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

upside of unrequited

I cried reading this at the worst possible time! I was back stage at a play and I had a small part so I would just sit and read a book. I had gotten a copy of this book from the library and I loved Simon so I knew that I was going to love this book to. I was sitting backstage reading this book and I could just relate to the main character with her having all these crushes and none of them liking her back but then she finally met someone and I was just like ‘this was the book I always need in my life!’. I started crying but then I remember I’m backstage and I have my whole face painted with makeup and I was about to go on stage and sing so I had to go put the book away so that I would stop crying! I then went and sang and tried to kidnap a girl *that’s just want i had to do with the play and then I finished everything up and I drove home and I finished this book and it was amazing! Simon is still my favorite but I love this book and I related a little more then I did to Simon.


Beauty and the Beast

onesheet

Wow! What a shock! The movie based off my favorite childhood movie made me! It’s not like I made a post talking about how excited I was for it. Nor did I make a post about the original movie and I didn’t make a giant review talking about how much I loved this movie. But wait! I did all of that and I fucking sob watching this film. Beauty and the Beast just means so much to me and it’s one of my favorite movies of all time. Seeing it with Emma Watson and experiencing my favorite movie in theaters just brought be to tears and I just loved it. Also Evermore! Evermore fucking broke! When Tale as Old as Time started playing and they started dancing I was just like tears. I got so emotional that my friend who went to the movies went me had to hold my hand so that I could calm down. I love this so much! If you don’t like Beauty and the Beast and think it is unhealthy fight me!


This is Us

this-is-us-sconed-season.90671.jpg

This should be obvious if you watch this show. IF you haven’t then you probably have heard about it. My mom started it and I would like sort of be in the room while she watched and then suddenly we started watching it together. One weekend I was home alone and I just binge all of season one and the episodes of season two that I hadn’t watched yet. I love this show but it breaks me into pieces. I posted a picture of me crying on instagram thinking it would be funny but then my extended family starting texting me and my parents to make sure I was okay. I don’t know why they didn’t see the text in the photo that said I was crying over the fact This is US and freaking Jack and the crockpot. If you haven’t watched This is US, you should and then you should tell me how much you cried. If you have watched This is Us and you haven’t cried then I ask you if you have a soul? Or did you just have better control of your emotions better then I do?


I hate Everyone by You by Gaby Dunn and Allison Raskin

51qiSnm2q1L._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

If you’ve been around here then you know that I love this book. If you listen then you know that I didn’t love as much as I do now. I didn’t cry the first time I read this book but one day I was having a hard time. I was stressed and super depressed and I was watching Gaby and Allison videos on youtube because that always makes me feel better but I wanted to read a book so I just decided to read this book to make me happy and it did just that. It just related so much to my life at that time and it made me feel better and wonderful and it made me laugh and I cried. I tried to get my sister to read it but she decided not to because she hates reading. I love this book so much. It’s a lot of fun and it’s very real and I love it. I read it three times last year which is something I never do as I only want to read a book once a year but I loved this book so much that I just needed it. This has definitely become one of my all time favorites.


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

harry-potter-deathly-hallows-part-2-movie-poster-hi-res-01

Incase you are wondering I did put the book Deathly Hallows on my list but I did not put the movie on there for some reason. Basically every time I watch this film I cry. It just happens. One time I wasn’t even watching it but my mom was and I came into the room to make my lunch and I was listening to it and I started tearing up because it’s soo sad! But it’s soo good! Watching this movie just leaves me as a mess.


Orphan Black

orphanblack-poster-500x760

So Orphan Black ended last year and damn I was scared about what was going to happen next because damn! I was messed up! This last season didn’t start off too great as some of the episodes felt like filler episodes and sometimes it felt like we were doing things that didn’t needed to be done but I still held on tight and watched and the episodes got better and better then the finale happened!!!!!!!! AHHHH!!!!!!! I was just sitting and watching everything happen and it was so good. I didn’t cry until the end but then after it ended all I did for about ten minutes was cry off and on again. I would sob some and then stop sobbing and then I would think about everything that had happened and then I would cry again. It was like that for a while. I love this show and the lead actress was rob from an emmy!


Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

turtles-all-the-way-down-hd-cover-john-green

I have a review on this book which badly describes my feelings for this book as I had a hard time writing it. I didn’t cry while reading this book, I cried after I finished reading this book. I read this in one day like I went to the store to go get a present for my best friend which I did and then I saw a signed copy of this book and I bought it and I spent my whole day reading it. Then that night I was in bed and I finished it and for a second I didn’t know how I felt about it. I enjoyed it and I knew that but there was something about this book that I couldn’t put by finger on but then about five minutes later, I started thinking about everything in this book and the journey that the character’s go through and the mental health part of it and I started crying. I loved this book and it is wonderful and amazing and I highly recommend it.


Wonder Woman

Wonder-Woman-Poster_1200_1778_81_s

Again I have a review which you can read here. I cried when Steve died and then I cried when she remembered him telling her that he could save today, she could save the world because if that’s not a perfect relationship then I don’t want is. It’s such a perfect movie and probably my favorite DC movie.


The Mindy Project

The-Mindy-Project-season-6-tv-poster-Hulu-series

I cried watching the finale. This Final season I was basically just like ‘If her and Danny don’t get back together then this is my least favorite show ever!’ because I hated Ben. He was the worst and he took all of the humor out of the show and he tried to make her a boring person but then they got divorced and I was like yay! Then her and Danny started hanging out again and getting along but then there was the last episode and it was perfect. There were parallels to the first episode which was so much fun and I was crying and then her and Danny made up and I was so happy. I love this show and I’m sad it’s over but I’m happy with the ending.


Final Fall by Heather W. Petty

18883196._UY2114_SS2114_

I have a review for all three books in the trilogy which you can read here, here, and here and it might be my favorite trilogy out there because damn it was so good! This is a trilogy about the relationship of a young Sherlock and Moriarty and watching the path the characters go down is just chilling and crazy. Final Fall was something I was kinda scared about because I did have hype a lot around this book and I got an arc and I saw that the size of this book was really small. But I understood why it was so short once I read because it all fit so perfectly together. I was so sad watching Sherlock and Mori fall out and watch her go deepier into the madness. It was just something crazy and wonderful and every time I hear Writer in the Dark by Lorde I think of this trilogy. If you haven’t read this series then I really recommend it because it’s soo good!


 Star Wars: The Last Jedi

 largeposter

Guess what? I have a review for this movie which you can read here. I talk about why I cried in the review and because this movie is so popular I don’t think I can talk about what made me cry but it wasn’t a very big cry and it was right at the end. I really enjoyed this movie.


Wonder by R.J. Palacio

121009_DX_WonderBook.jpg.CROP.article250-medium

The last thing on this last is Wonder and I haven’t seen the film yet so I’m only talking about the book. You should know what this book is about and it should be obvious of why I cried. I cried reading about the way the other kids treat Auggie and seeing how his sister and her friends react to everything. Normally in books you only see one point of view and that what makes Wonder so amazing because you see it from every angle.I was in the car when I read this book and I started crying and then my mom started screaming at me to stop crying.


One Day at a Time

one-day-at-a-time-sezon-2-season-2-cover-okladka

I have cried so many times watching this and I love this show so many times. I first cried watching the season one finale when stupid Victor left before the Father-daughter dance and then Penelope went and dance with her and then Alex, Lydia, and Schneider danced with them and it was so beautiful and wonderful. They just care about each other so much. Then when Penelope decided to go off her meds because she didn’t want to have to tell Max about her meds. But she got depressed and started being mean to everyone and couldn’t get out of bed. Then when she made up with Schneider and they listened to her recording of her talking and I was just in tears because I could relate to it so much and I understood everything that she was saying she went through. Then when Schneider told her about after he went sober he decided to have one drink and after that night he realized that he could never it again and it was sort of like what she was going through. Then when she told Max and he was so understanding and it brought me to tears again. Another time I cried was just the whole season two finale. I was mess. I love this show so much and everyone should watch it.


That was the books, tv shows, and movies that made me cry! What books and movies made you cry? I hope you guys enjoy this list!

After We Collided by Anna Todd Review!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing After We Collided by Anna Todd!

WARNING SPOILERS

81iwgTvwHGL

F: Wasn’t a good read and a was a waste of time. Characters were dulled and annoying and so was the plot line.

“Just because he can’t love you the way you want him to doesn’t mean he does’t love you with everything he has.”

I wasn’t going to review this book because I didn’t think I had a lot of opinions on it but then I started my goodreads review and I wrote like four paragraphs and I still have somethings to say about it. Because it’s this book is so terrible and it’s been a while since I reviewed a book I hated. In case you are wondering ‘ Grace didn’t you read the first book? Didn’t you like the first book?” Yes two both questions. But just because I liked the first book doesn’t mean I have to like the rest of the books. If we are being real I don’t even like the first book anymore. I honestly debate about whether I even like that first book and it’s mainly because the relationship in these books is really terrible but they are more characters and a lot more scenes where the characters are likable.

So this book takes place right after the events After and Tessa is super upset that Hardin *still not used to that awful name only dated her as a bet. Hardin continually tries to win her back despite the fact that she wants him to leave her alone and he does it in the weirdest and creepiest ways ever. Tessa needs to get her car fixed and Hardin just takes without telling her. He also follows her, calls her, and whenever he screams at her a lot. He still gets super jealous even though they aren’t together. When Tessa is drunk and she drunk calls him, he goes to her hotel room and sleeps with her even though she is drunk and he is sober. When she wakes up, he keeps telling her that she wanted him and that he didn’t take advantages of her but I’m like Hardin you did. Yes Tessa said she wanted you but she was drunk and you were sober and you slept with her knowing that if she was sober she wouldn’t be sleeping you so you did take advantage of her.

I would just like how to say that I have no problem with big books but then thing about big books is that THEY CAN ONLY BE GOOD IF SOME FUCKING HAPPENS IN!!! Lord of Shadows is a big book and it is a big book that I love with all my heart but stuff happened  in that book *that book also had people i cared about. This whole book is Tessa and Hardin fighting, having sex, making up, fighting, breaking up, fighting, having sex, making up and it’s so annoying. There is six hundred fucking pages of all that. Their first break at the end of After which continues into this book last about hundred pages. This book as a lot of flaws the main one is that between the relationship is the main problem because it’s toxic. Super toxic. The beginning of this review has some great examples of why they relationship is toxic but I’m going to give you so more examples. For one Hardin is so super jealous. Even when they aren’t together he is still jealous like the scene after where they slept together when she is drunk and he is sober they are getting along but then suddenly she mentions that last night that she kissed someone and he flips out.

He is the worst! Hardin even tells her a lie just to hurt her and I’m like I know that you are hurt but you guys weren’t together so you have no right to act like such an ass. He leaves without telling her and goes out and hangs out at some other girls apartment and Tessa gets into a car accident looking for him. When she finds out that he went out and was at someone else apartment, he keeps saying how hurt he is and he does this all the same fucking time. Tessa was in a car accident, she is hurt physically and emotionally and you are saying you are hurt right now are you fucking kidding!

The characters aren’t the best. Tessa tries to be a strong heroine but a lot of time she isn’t. Hardin is one of my least favorite male leads I’ve read in a book. Sometimes as this book as chapters in his POV I would feel bad and think he was growing as a character but then he acts like an ass and we are back to square one. The character Zed is made to look like a villain even though he is just trying to get Tessa out of this relationship as all Hardin does is betray her and treat her like she is beneath him. He is does care about her and he loves her which he admits but he is trying to get her out of this relationship because he sees that it is unhealthy and abusive and Tessa literally says that everything Hardin has done is her fault which is not true. Landon continues to be my favorite and he is in like less then five percent of this book.

The sex scenes are so bad I couldn’t even read them. I tried to but the writing is so cringing. Half the time they have sex in public places or with people around and you have to wonder don’t they see? There is a scene where she leans back onto her desk and lifts her skirt and they have desk against the desk and it was bad. You have to wonder how can’t people see them. I mean she is an intern there is no way she has a private office and don’t people work around her? It just didn’t make sense. Maybe it was explained I didn’t may attention during any of the sex scenes because they are the same and badly written. Also I don’t like romance books.

Look this book has its flaws and I wouldn’t say that I loved it as I’m not a romance lover. I don’t know if I’ll continue this series unless book three is on sale or I somehow get a copy for free. I’m not saying it’s bad I mean at some points I was weirdly interested in the story but then Hardin would do something stupid and over react and Tessa would cry and I wonder how these two haven’t realized they need to break up?  Also is no one talking about the fact that the author took a line from Wuthering Heights and people are now crediting her for that line. Just me?

“Whatever our souls are made of his and mine are the same”

Speaking of Wuthering Heights this book really wants to be Wuthering Heights as both the leads are compared to Catherine and Heathcliff but hey AT LEAST WUTHERING HEIGHTS WAS INTERESTING!!! The author also really wants Hardin to be like Will Herondale which isn’t possible honey. There is one Will and you can’t replace him!!!! Will Herondale would throw up if he saw you. Will Herondale had a reason for pushing Tessa Gray *a good heroine because he was scared that he was going to kill her because he cared about her. Hardin just pushes Tessa away because he is insecure and he is abusive and he is such an ass. I think I like the first book more even though I didn’t really enjoy that book either as like this one it’s about six hundred pages long and nothing happens!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I should see the movie when it comes out because that would be one fun review.

Also the slut shaming in this book is terrible. Why do we always have to turn girls against each other to cause drama? Seriously? Can we just stop? It seems as if in romance books if you aren’t a virgin you are the bad guy or a whore and if you are a virgin everyone will love and you are an idiot which either of those things are true. I’m going to say this which is that as long as you are comfortable, being safe, and have consent when it comes to sex then that is okay. It just annoys me. Why do we have to put girls against each other? We should be fighting together but not against each other. Let’s write romance books with healthy relationships, good storylines, good characters. Okay? Okay. Writers let’s stop slut shaming, stop abusive relationships, stop making girl’s lives change when they met a boy.

Look this book is terrible. It’s one of the worst things I’ve read this year. The relationship is super unhealthy and this book is so fucking long and nothing happens other then them fighting and having sex. But I got what I wanted out this book. I wanted a read that I didn’t have to focus on and read easily, something that I knew I wouldn’t love but I wouldn’t hate *but i do hate it. Have you guys read this book? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way. You should follow my book club here and other social media links.

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir Review | Season 2 EP 3: Prime Queen

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing the third episode of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir season two!

Prime_Queen_Promotional_Artwork

So it’s been about two months since my last post on Miraculous. You should have seen this coming though. Like it’s been awhile since I’ve talked about it and they’ve released the date for when the first part of season two will be released on Netflix. This is now my six post on miraculous have you gotten annoyed with me talking about it?? Well I don’t really care and I won’t stop so. I did two review for the first season which you can read hereand here, I did a theory post here, and I did a review for the first episode of season two here and the second episode here. Season two finally has a release date to air in America and I was right about it airing in March. I’m hoping this will stick because we got a date and not just a month like last time. Even though I’ve watched some episodes mean I will still be watching then when they air in America! AND YOU SHOULD TOO! I would probably do these for more episodes of season two and I will probably do like a season wrap for when I’ve watched it all.

Prime Queen was a good episode with some enjoyable moment. It felt like it was sort of making fun fans and how they react to things like that episode of Supernatural called Fanfic which was them making fun of the fans. Nadja Chamack who has appeared in many episodes is akamized into Prime Queen and she wants Ladybug and Chat Noir to admit their love for each other. You see where I’m going with this? Like Despair Bear it’s like the episodes in season one where someone gets akamizes and they have to save them. There isn’t really a plot point or more information added but it was still fun to watch and I had a good time. I think I’m going to give this episode an +A. If I had to say which episode has been my least favorite it would probably have to be this one. The Collector was intense and added more to the story and Despair Bear gave us so great shipping moments and even though this one was good I wasn’t like in love with it as much as I love the other ones. That’s it for my nonspoilery section! If you haven’t watched this episode yet then leave and then come back. BYE!

WARNING SPOILERS!

Even though I said that this episode didn’t have any information we did learn something which is if you don’t remember from my first review of the show I was wondering if Chat Noir remembered the kiss that happened between them in Dark Cupid and we discover that he does not as when Nadja shows them a picture of them kissing *which i would like to ask how the hell she got that picture and he is surprised and asks when did it happen. He also tries to kiss her like two other times which I kind of bothers me a little bit and I know that it was supposed to funny and they were told that they had to prove their love for each other if they want to save everyone but she tells him No and he still tries. Maybe I’m just reading to far into this.

Prime Queen was a great villain! Damn she was intense. She tries to kill to teenage girls just because they called in the middle of her interview. Seriously! We have had some villains that just cause trouble, some villains are trying to get back at others, but besides from Kung Food who tried to cook Chloe, I don’t like we’ve had a villain that has literally tried to kill people to get her way.  Her power is really closed to Lady Wifi’s as she can travel through technology but she can travel through tvs while Lady Wifi can only travel through phones. I like I said this episode does make fun of fans but like not really and it’s like all fans and not just the ones for this fandom. It makes fun of them in the way that they read into to things as Nadja shows them a bunch of pictures that are from random moments from different episodes and asks to explain these pictures if they aren’t a couple and Marinette is just like these were taken out contexts and I’m laughing because I’ve seen some many people just analyze moments and pictures to figure out people and I thought it was so funny. Then she got upset when they wouldn’t admit it well she was mainly upset that because they left early and her show got canceled but I was like this is like how people react sometimes.

Also I weirdly don’t believe that a show could get canceled that fast. We weirdly didn’t see them as Adrien and Marinette in this episode. We got a little bit of Marinette in the beginning and in the end but that’s it. The episode is mainly just focused on them as Ladybug and Chat Noir. I did like what Ladybug says when they leave the studio how they aren’t celebrities, they are superheroes and how they should do doing their jobs. I don’t know sometimes her priorities aren’t in the best so the fact that she wanted to be just a hero and nothing more then that I thought that it was good decision. All in all I thought that Prime Queen was a very good episode. The villain was probably the strongest part as she was great. I can’t wait for more to come episodes to come. I’m really hoping that March 30 stays and I can finally watch the first half of season two!

I think that it is for my Prime Queen review! I hope you enjoyed this review! Again I will be watching the episodes once the air in America and I strongly think that everyone one who lives in America should also do the same. If you are watching it online then go and watch it again because I’ve watched a lot of shows end because people watched it online then exactly watch it. I think that’s it for my review for this episode. IF you would like for me to review the next ones then let me know. Also I have not seen the rest of season two and please don’t leave spoilers in the comments or on my social media thank you very much. I will be watching the rest of season two when it airs and you should to. Have you guys seen season two yet? If you have what did you think?

The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro review!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing the Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro!

y648

+ A: Perfect story with get characters and fantastic plot line.

“I tended to spend too much time with my favorite things, loved them too hard until I wore them down. After a while, they became more like a shorthand for who I was and less like things I actually enjoyed.”

I have a review for the first book which you can read here. If you have read my review for the first book or you follow me on twitter then you probably saw that I was so excited for this book and that all I have done is think about the characters and the story because I love it so much. It came in the mail yesterday *i’m writing this on saturday the 17 of 2018 and I was excited. I tried not to read it because it was 12 and I would go be go for the rest of the day and wouldn’t be back until later. But I have no self control so I read this book and oh my god!! There is only one word to describe this book is shook. I have never had a book made me feel this shook since Lord of Shadows! Every page I felt like I was going to cry. So much stuff happens in this book and it’s crazy.

This book takes off a couple weeks after the first book ended with Jamie and Charlotte meeting up and hanging out after winter break. When I finished the first book I was so hoping that when this book started off we would get these fun and cute moments between Charlotte and Jamie and then all the drama would start but boy! That was not the case! We start the story and they are already fighting. So Jamie and Charlotte are spending time together in his house in London and we are told that all these cute and wonderful moments happen between them and then they are talking he tries to kiss her and but then things get awkward! When Charlotte said that she wanted to talk to him but she knew that they would fight so she decided not to say anything I break me because they love each other so much. This whole book I was waiting for them to kiss because they so wanted to but everything with August and everything else things were crazy. When they finally kissed and Charlotte asked him if thats what he wanted and they started fighting and then he told her to leave. Then she went out and used drugs and I was so upset because I just care about them so much.

After the thing with Jamie and he is in the hospital and they do stuff and she says that she just wanted to do something before he hated her it just broke me. The whole thing with her family just reminded me that they all need to go to group therapy. They don’t treat their daughter right at all and it sucks. They kept all this stuff from her so shit happened and AHHHH! We finally met Leandar but he isn’t around a lot because he goes missing and doesn’t appear until the end of the book. He carefully does care about Charlotte and he treats Jamie so nicely. I think that his part will grow as the books go along. Milo is in this book a lot more and like with the first book even though they don’t say it he and Charlotte really do care about each other in their own weird way. But with the end and he kills August! I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT! He shot August! He thought that he was his brother and he shot him! And then tells Charlotte that it’s her mess. THEN THE BOOK FUCKING ENDS!

I said it in my review for the first book I don’t trust August and through out this book I still didn’t trust. He was going do something shady and I wasn’t gonna let him hurt my children. Then when I finally allowed myself to like him HE DIED! I was upset! It was Aaron from the Silver Mask all over again. August is a good character like everyone else morally grey and maybe should get some medical help. I do have an issue with this book and it’s the same with the first book which is the fighting between Jamie and Charlotte. Their fights are repetitive and they never talk because every time they tried to talk things don’t go well. But if they never talk their relationship will become hella toxic and I don’t want that. Another thing is where this book is going with Charlotte and her mental health and drug abuse. She needs help and Jamie knows this as he has tried to tell her she does through out the book. I’m scared that this book will go down the Love can heal Mental Health and that’s just a trope I can’t see past. I’m scared that she will just be like I just have Jamie and I’m fine. I hope that their relationship can give her a reason to go and get help. I haven’t read a Case For Jamie and I’m scared because I’ve read the sample pages and I’m scared about what the hell is going to happen because they aren’t talking.

For Question for Holmes I’ve come up with an ending that could work and what the question could. I think that a possible ending is Jamie and Charlotte fake their deaths like Sherlock Holmes but they do it together and then Milo takes them into hiding and it’s like the Mockingjay ending where they adjust to their lives together but then one day they are like ‘hey let’s get together’ and they get live happily ever after. After then that I think could happen which doesn’t have to go with that weird theory but basically the A Question for Holmes we get like a flash forward to an older Jamie and Charlotte and they are together and happy and the question is Charlotte will you marry me and then she says yes and it relates to the first books ending with like ‘He always says yes’ but now it’s with Charlotte. Let me know if you think I should write this fanfiction. I’ll do it don’t think i won’t!

So in short this book messed me up and I love it so much this has honestly become one of my favorite series. I love it so much. I will totally be reading Case for Jamie whenever I can because my love is too great! These characters are just so amazing and wonderful and they all have problems and I hope that they get help and a happy ending. Have you guys read this book? If you have what did you think? Did you like it? I hope you guys liked because I thought it was great. I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure to look out for more coming your way soon.

*crying noise* | They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera review

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera!

WARNING SPOILERS

33385229

+ A: Perfect story with get characters and fantastic plot line.

“I cannot tell you how you will survive without me. I cannot tell you how to mourn me.  I cannot convince you to not feel guilty if you forget the anniversary of my death, or if you realize days or weeks or months have gone by without thinking about me. I just want you to live.”

So if we are being honest I read this book in 2017 but I had already posted my favorites of 2017. I told myself when I got it that I need to wait for 2018 so that I could put it on my favorite list because I knew I would like it but unfortunately I’m impatient. So I read it and I loved it but I felt like I was on edge the whole time like wondering when they were going to die and if they were go to get together that I was unable to put fully put myself in this world. So I decided when 2018 came I would re read this book and I would love it and put it on my favorite lists! basically I love They Both Die at the End. I have read Adam Silvera’s other books and I loved them as well but this one might be my favorite because I cried reading it. With History is All You Left Me and More Happy than Not I did this weird thing were I just hyperventilated because I have so many emotions. But with this one I just cried because even though the title tells you what happens I was still sad with what happened in the end *i also just took my act that day so i was really tired.

They Both Die at the End is about two boys who receive a phone call saying that sometime in the next 24 hours they will die. There is this app called the Last friend app and they meet through it and shit happens and it’s very sad shit and thinking about it is making me tear up. This is a great book and it is one of my favorites of 2018 so yeah. This  book was just wonderful and amazing and I love it! The relationship is so beautiful and wonderful and I loved the characters are so great. I was so upset that Mateo was never going to talk to his dad again and how he went to see him. After he died and Rufus went to the hospital and left his dad that note telling him about their lats day and that’s honestly the moment when I started crying. I mean I had like teared before that but I was like sobbing *i’m tearing up thinking about it. 

I loved how you can also see the other points of views of other characters around them. It reminded me of The Sun is Also a Star whenever it did that which was also a book that I really loved. I thought that worked really well with this book as you do focus on Mateo and Rufus but you see everyone else and it just made the world and everything around it all read to me. I don’t know what I can say about this book another then the fact that it was perfection and I want to rereading until the end of time! Favorite book of the year! If you haven’t read this book then I highly recommend.

I love this book. It’s beautiful and heart breaking and beautifully heartbreaking. So hopefully the next I talk about this book I won’t tear up. I can’t guarantee that though. I’m really excited for What If It’s Us even though that book will fuck me up more than this one because both Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli are both writers that make me cry. Have you guys read this book? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way.

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro review!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m review A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro!

a study in charlotte

-A: Good story with characters that got better and a slow plot line

“We weren’t Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. I was ok with that, I thought. We had things they didn’t, too. Like electricity, and refrigerators. And Mario Kart.”

If you have been on my blog for a while then you probably know that I didn’t like this book. I hated the characters, I hated the story line, and I wasn’t interested in it. But recently I decided to give this series another chance because I didn’t like Clockwork Scarab when I first read that but then I gave it a second chance and I love it! IT’s become one of my favorite series. Also Rocky from Blonde with a Book talks about this series and I was just like maybe I should give them another chance. I also read this book at time were I was on like missing Stoker and Holmes and Lock and Mori high. Now that Lock and Mori has ended and Stoker and Holmes is ending soon I needed a new series to read so I went this one. I’m really glad I gave this another chance because I had a lot more fun the second time around then the first time.

This story follows Jamie Watson who is the great great great something grandson of John Watson and Charlotte Holmes who is the the great great great something granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes. After Jamie goes to a school in Connecticut he and Charlotte finally met. After some things that happened, the two don’t get along but then a murder happens and the two find themselves the main suspects of the murder. The two come together and to figure out what happened to the kid at their school and other things and it’s all interesting and I love it! This book is a lot of fun and even though at some points I was a little like can we just stop fighting and tell each other secrets! Please! I love Jamie and Charlotte! I love them as characters and as a couple and I have not read The Last of August so no spoilers!

So for this whole book I on the edge of my seat with what was going to happen because so much kept happening and if you weren’t careful you could miss something. Despite reading this book before I did not remember who killed Lee so when I found out it was Bryony and I was ‘WHAT?’! I was not expecting her to be August’s fiancé or the one behind all everyone! I love when Charlotte tells him that she is taking the blame and he says that if she does that then he will die out of spite and I was like AHHHHHHH! I love them so much! But like I can tell that it will hurt because in every Sherlock retelling the relationships always crush me! Mina and Ambrose, Lock and Mori, and now Charlotte and Jamie and I can’t handle it! I love them but they are causing me so much pain! When Jamie fights Lee and Charlotte comes out and is like I don’t need you to stand up to me I was just reminded of that moment in Star when she tells him that she doesn’t need a hero! Maybe it’s because I miss Star but like that’s all I could think about.

Charlotte is probably the most extra version of Sherlock I’ve ever meant. I do know that sometimes they can pretend to be someone to get these done but the whole being Haley and pretending like her and Jamie were a couple I was like girl seriously? Jamie is like Watson but somehow even more stubborn. He doesn’t let things go and gets upset about somethings and I was annoyed at some moments but I did like him. The sass in this book was on point! I loved it! It was a lot of fun. One of the things that I didn’t like was how much Charlotte and Jamie fight and I get that they are very different people so like they will fight each other. It just happens a lot and so much that I hated! Charlotte doesn’t tell him anything and Jamie keeps doing stupid stuff and I was just like BE BEST FRIENDS! Sometimes the fights would be mentioned and that’s were you have to pay attention comes in as you can miss them. I know this because I missed a line that said her and Jamie had a deal which was she would smoke instead of doing drugs.

The scene where Charlotte does Oxy and sees Jamie and tells him about her past and how she started taking drugs to not feel anymore and it was so sad and I just wanted to hold her because she is just trying to get by and I love her. When she said she was mean to him so that he would go away my heart broke! She doesn’t deserve this pain! Even though I do love her I do like that she needs to get help. Like with her drug problem and her mental health because so much has happened to her and her family clearly isn’t helping. I really hope that she gets help and that the whole series isn’t like Jamie somehow cures her mental health and problems because if they do then I will be so mad because it is my least favorite trope. Again I haven’t read the rest of the series so I don’t know what route this story will go on but can someone somehow just tell me that these books don’t fall into that trope. I don’t like Tom and that’s just because of him giving information on Jamie and I was like HOW COULD YOU! Maybe he gets some development later but for now I’m not his biggest fan.

Milo is just like Mycroft in the sense that he is so shady and I can never tell what side he is on. Also I have been saying his name wrong. He does care about Charlotte and she cares about him because this family is weird you have to like really read into to see that they care. I don’t trust August either like we haven’t even met him and I don’t trust him. My first guess was that she and August had some sort of affair and then he went crazy and did something bad because I was thinking it was a Lock and Mori *another sherlock series i’m obsessed with situation going on. I was wrong so Charlotte did like him but he rejected her and she got him arrested and he then faked his death and is now working for her brother. I don’t trust him and he will probably cause trouble between Charlotte and Jamie and I can’t deal! He will probably be working with his brother and will be a bad person and I just want things to be happy! I just want Charlotte and Jamie to be in a happy relationship because I love them. I was waiting for them to kiss and then they did and it was short and I wanted more! If I don’t get more then I will cry for a million years. I’m so obsessed with them like every song I listen to now I’m just like ‘Omg this is so about Jamie and Charlotte’ and I messaged Rocky and I was just like every sad song I listen I just automatically believe it’s connected to them.

When they were at the dance I thought it was so cute that Charlotte was just singing a long to dancing queen. Then they started dancing and I was just like yes I’m going to get a cute little dance scene between them but then the slow music comes on and they both just run away from each other and I was so upset! I wanted a cute slow dance scene! When I finished this book I was so hoping that I would get some cute Charlotte and Jamie traveling around London having a good time then the angst would come and then I read the sample and we just skip right to angst! I’m not ready! I’m not! Even though Jamie gets on my nerves I do love him. I just wish he didn’t give Charlotte such a hard time I mean clearly this goes both ways but either of them are handing it well! It’s a little realistic but still they need to chill. Jamie is fun and he goes through a lot of shit and I want him to be happy and to be happy with Charlotte. I liked the way the book ends with Charlotte like reviewing Jamie’s story and that line where she says that he is so great and he always says yes and AHH!

I really enjoyed this book and I will be continuing on with the sequel soon. It should be coming in the mail tomorrow *tomorrow as in Friday the day this is published but i’m writing this on Thursday and I’m so excited. I keep messaging Rocky about this series because I can’t stop talking about it and I continue reading the pages online because I needed it! I needed it so much! Hopefully I can start it tomorrow but I have a date and and then my family is coming into town and I have work but I need to read the Last of August. I need it! Then I need the Case of Jamie.
