Top 10 Favorite Shows! | 2017 Spring Edition

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a top 10 of all my favorite shows of spring of 2017! I did one for winter in February which you can read here. It’s a little late. It’s very late as it’s almost June but I wanted to do this now before we were too deep into the summer. Let’s began!


#10 The Vampire Diaries

the-vampire-diaries-poster-cast.jpg

You’ve probably heard of this show given it came out in the 2009s when everyone was vampire crazy. I’ve been watching this show for a while and I’m only on season two because I’m watching it with my mom and we are always busy doing stuff. We tried to start watching it again but we didn’t remember anything that had happen but it’s fun show to watch that I don’t have to take that seriously.  I read the book and I didn’t like but this show is a lot more enjoyable than the book was. I really like Ian Somerhalder though because he has really pretty eyes and a nice face. I hate Bonnie though Oh my god is she a hypocrite.


#9 Reign

RGN_Poster_800px_130826193656

Again this is another show on CW that I have fun watching and I don’t really have to pay attention to. This show follows Mary, Queen of Scots and I’ve wanted to watch this show for a long time and now that I’m watching it I’m not loving it but I’m not hating it. It’s an okay show that isn’t at all historically inaccurate when it comes to history which I think is hilarious. One they play modern music through out the whole thing, two the outfits aren’t correct for the time period as some of the dresses Mary wears show a lot skin and her elbows which wasn’t allowed during that time because they were weird and hated women, three their is a lot of magic involved with the storyline which I know didn’t happen. But I’m liking this show and if you like CW shows then you’ll love this one.


#8 Supernatural

supernatural-season-12-cover

I put this show on my last list and I know I raved about it because at the time, I was in love with it. I’ve been in love with it since I was 14 and even though it slowed down a little bit in the later seasons but I loved season 11! It was the best season that they had had in a while and the first half of season 12 was great and I was having so much fun but then the second half of season 12 was so boring and I hated it. Well I I didn’t hate but I was just disappointed with it. Supernatural seemed like it was going to be starting to get good again. The British men of letters thing was boring and the anti-christ storyline was too American Horror Story. Don’t even get me started on that season finale like I’m soo mad! How can they do that to me?! I won’t spoil you on anything but I hope that it doesn’t stay like that for long.


#7 Luke Cage

luke-cage-cropped.jpg

Again another show that it’s taking a lot of time for me to watch. I’m enjoy it though and I need to watch more of it before Defenders comes out and I also need to finish Daredevil and watch Iron Fist before Defenders. Luckily I’ll have some free time soon as summer break is near like I have a week of exams and then I’m out of school! I hope to catch up on a lot of shows during my free time. I will finish Luke Cage! I’m enjoying it so far and it’s great! I love all the characters and the story line right now and Mahershala Ali is amazing on this show.


#6 Brooklyn Nine-Nine

BrooklynNineNine_S4.jpg

This show is so much fun to watch! It’s like Scrubs or Psych you know it’s in a setting that most shows take seriously and do overly dramatic plot lines but it doesn’t take itself to seriously and tries to just fun. Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows a group of people who work at  a police station in New York if you haven’t guessed and they all have different personalities that make them work together. I love Jake and Amy they are so cute together and even though they have different personalities as he is laid back and she is a giant nerd but they seem to make each other better. I love Terry and I love Rosa! And I just love the whole thing!


#5 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

63596611808798173224502820_Unbreakable-Kimmy-Schmidt.png

Season three just came onto Netflix and it’s completely random! I love it though. The lemonade parody was amazing and so funny. This show is just a fun and completely random show and you’ll just be laughing really hard when you watch it. It has a really naive main lead who was trapped in a bunker for 15 years and she doesn’t know much about the world. Her roommate Titus is the funniest thing ever and I love the way they interact together. Just go and binge watch all three seasons because it’s so much fun.


#4 Gilmore Girls

14298_7867ecbf7a994ddeb64c40534ef66d22_16x9_788x442o

I’m actually re watching this show because I love it so much. I just wanted to get the feel that it gave me when I first watched it two years ago. I’m on the beginning of season four which isn’t my favorite season as you know Lorelai and Rory are in different locations aren’t together most of the time and there’s the whole Dean thing. But I do love seeing young Jared Padalecki, I don’t love his character later in the series and if you are a supernatural fan then you probably thinks it funny that his name is Dean on this show. I’m just going to say this to get it out in the air……*takes a deep breath.… I hate Jess. Sorry not sorry. He’s a jerk. I mean he gets better later like in season 6 and in A Year in a Life.


#3 The Mindy Project

785f6b2cbf5ea76206dd11d81b14754b-the-mindy-project-season-5.jpg

I need this show to come back on because it’s the final season and I need to know what happens. So season five did something that seemed like Mindy was happy about but then in the last final seconds it shows Mindy looking sad about what she decided to do. I want to know how this last season will play out. Will Danny come back because I miss him? He needs to work out his issues with Mindy and come back because I don’t like Ben that much or at all. I’m sad that it’s the last season because I love Mindy Kaling, she is hilarious and she is so great on this show.


#2 BBC Class

p048smks

Again this was on my last list but it’s on airing in America and I’m showing it to my mom and  I love it! I have a review for it which you should totally read here. This show is amazing and it was created by Patrick Ness who is amazing and he never tells the same story twice every and this was a spin off series to Doctor Who! You guys need watch this show because so many people don’t know anything about it and I want a second season because I need to know what happens next! Go watch this show please. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


#1 Parenthood

parenthood_combined3-620x388.png

I binged watched this series so hard. All six seasons. In a week. I got mad binging skill. This show is a mix of comedy and drama and you will cry and laugh and it’s great. Watch it because it’s so much fun. You’ll have a good time when you aren’t crying.


Well this was fun. I enjoy talking about tv shows, I should do it more. If you were expecting 13 Reasons why and Riverdale well I’m sorry but I don’t watch trash. I’m sorry Riverdale is trash. 13 Reasons Why is just a show that I don’t agree with some of the choices that were made. Do you guys agree with what I’ve said? Have you guys watched any of these shows? If not you really should. I hope you guys enjoy this top 10 list! Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!

THE MOST AMAZING EVER!! | Beauty and the Beast 2017 Movie Review

Greeting Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing the live action remake of Beauty and the Beast staring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast.

WARNING SPOILERS!

BECAUSE THIS FILM MESSED ME UP!!

BUT IN A GOOD WAY!

onesheet

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

If you didn’t know, I’ve been looking forward for this film for a long today and last month it finally came out! Unfortunately I took me forever to go and see it but now I’ve seen it and I have soo much to say because it was so beautiful and perfect and I cried like five times because I have a giant emotional attachment to the original film *stops to catch breath. So yeah I’ve talked about my excitement in two different posts, one talking about my excitement in general which you can read here and then another talking about everything that I was looking forward to this year and this was the first thing on it which you can read here.  I also reviewed this original movie which you can read here.

I love the original film, it was my favorite disney movie ever and every time I watch just fall in love with it again. I just love the story and the characters and the love and the music and the whole damn thing! IT’S THE BEST THING IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!! So I had high hopes for this film for one it’s a live action version of one the best films ever and two it’s got Emma Watson playing Belle.

emma-watson-beauty-beast-trailer-today-170221-tease-01_6e9eb899159e40b1de2168a4c1bd527e.today-inline-large.jpg

This was a great casting choice in my opinion, Emma Watson is just so amazing as Belle and in the beginning of the film all I could think is damn why do you get to be so pretty? because she is so beautiful. I loved her sing in this movie and I didn’t even know they were going to sing until a couple mouths before the film came out and I was freaking out because I had never heard Emma Watson or Dan Stevens sing before. Everyone was great in this film with the singing and everything! Another reason I was looking forward to this movie was DAN FREAKING STEVENS!!!!!!

676FD93B-8EE0-4FC8-AAD1-C676C219CB35_cx0_cy3_cw0_w1023_r1_s

Oh my god! I love him! Look at that face!!!! LOOK AT IT!!! *oh yeah a discovery that i have made is that i’m basically in love with every british male actor and sometimes actress ever!! it’s a problem but i think i can live with it. I watched him on Downton Abbey and he was soo great on that show but then he left and IT BROKE MY HEART!! But I found out that he was in this and I was so excited and I got really excited when I found out that they sang! I was ready to find out if he could sing and they never released any clips of him singing, they released clips of everyone else singing but not him. And then the film came out and everyone was talking about Evermore which is the song that the Beast sings.

I didn’t listen to it because my rule was not to listen to any of the songs until I saw the movie and I did just that and it was WORTH IT!!! I was sobbing during the song, my friend looked at me like I was having a stroke. I’ve been listening to this song everyday for weeks now. I REGRET NOTHING!!! Dan Stevens was great as the Beast and he and Emma did such a great job with their characters and their songs. One of my favorite things during this film and the scene where I was every emotional that my friend had to hold my hand to calm me down was the dance scene where the two dance and she was wearing that dress and the main song is playing and IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL!!

Beauty-and-the-Beast-Featured-11142016.jpg

Emma Thompson who played Mrs. Potts did a great job singing Beauty and The Beast during this scene. For a second I thought they were going to play Ariana Grande and John Legend’s cover of the song which is the worst in my opinion but then they didn’t which made me really happy. I thought the iconic yellow dress looked good at some moments and then some other moments it looked boring but I still liked it.

The film had good moments and unlike what the trailers show you, it isn’t a spot on remake of the original version. They add different thing like they showed happened with Belle’s mother, the Enchantress’ who cursed the beast shows up more than she did in the first version, more new songs were add and they were pretty good, and we got some new characters and we also saw Mr. Potts. I thought Gaston was great and what I mean by that is I mean the actor Luke Evans did a great job of making him a horrible character because Gaston sucks. His death was also another thing that was changed and Le Fou became a better person in the end and realized that Gaston wasn’t making the right decisions. They also made him dance with a guy at the end which I don’t have a problem with but it was just thrown in there and I’m like if you going to make a disney be with someone of the same sex then give them a bigger storyline then just one moment.

My least favorite thing about this movie was Be Our Guest which is one of the most iconic songs and scenes in a Disney movie but in this film it was performed Ewan McGregor who did the voice of Lumiere and he did an okay job. The whole thing was a GI mess and crazy and I was cringing the whole time. Another scene that I cried really hard in was when the Beast was injured by Gaston and he is on the break of death and the last petal falls and everyone turns back into still objects and it’s so sad!!!!

This was a great movie and I’m glad to have seen it! I laughed, I cried, and I loved every second of it. What do you guys think about this film? Did you love like I did?  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.

10 Top Favorite Shows! | 2017 Winter Edition

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a top 10 of all my favorite shows of winter of 2017! I have always wanted to do something like this and I was going to do it with my favorites list but I’m going to do separate list and I’m going to do one for each season. This should be fun! I hope you guys enjoy this!


#10 Daredevil

596674.jpg

Yeah I know you are probably thinking how are you just now getting into Daredevil! I know and I’m disappointed in myself. I started watching it when it first came on but then my family wanted to watch together so then we watched that the first two episodes then my dad went and watched it without me and then after watching Jessica Jones, I decided to start watching Daredevil. I’m still working on season one but it’s hella good. I understand why everyone loves it. I’m loving all the Marvel Netflix shows. I just love any Marvel superhero stuff. It’s my life.


#9 The Crown

the-crown-poster

 Another Netflix original show that follows Queen Elizabeth II coming to power and follows her and her relationship with her husband, her sister, and a lot of another people. I mainly wanted to watch because it’s got a blonde Matt Smith and I love him. Also I like watching shows that take place in different times because I love seeing all the clothes because they remind me that I was born in the wrong era! I really love shows with British people which again is like my life. I’m almost done wit the first season and I haven’t heard anything about a season two but hopefully that’s happening.


#8 How to get away with Murder

how-to-get-away-with-murder-season-3.jpg

*they all look so sexy in this picture

This show is one of those shows that stresses me out so much. If you couldn’t tell by the title this show has something along the lines of murder and getting away with it and that’s all I can really say with giving anything away. I went into this show before season two aired and I didn’t know that much about and then I watched like the whole season in one day then I started season two and I was just like screaming because this show is just TOO GOOD!!! Viola Davis is just amazing in this show she is just so amazing. Every episode is like hey Viola Davis invented acting. Everyone else is really amazing too they have such a great cast. Season three B started and man it’s good!


#7 Sherlock

33910

Season four just finished and I have mixed feelings about it. I thought the first episode was okay. I called the ending of the episode which disappointed me because Sherlock had never been predictable. The second episode was great! It was really crazy and some great moments happened. I was laughing while crying at the same time because even though what had happened in episode one was predictable it was still pretty sad and it had a giant affect. Episode three was just crazy crazy with a capital C shit went down in this episode. I was told that season four was the final season and they made it seem like the final season with how episode three ended. I was happy with how it ended but now I’m seeing all these different articles about season 5 happening and I’m just like what? If there isn’t a season five then I’m happy but if there is I’m still happy.


#6 New Girl

episode-6-1-3_poster_goldposter_com_1.jpg@0o_0l_300w_70q.jpg

This is one of the shows that I’ve loved for along time because it is soo funny. This is one of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen. It’s currently on season six and I think that it might be coming to an end soon because stuff is happening and it’s making me wonder if it’s coming to end which I don’t want because this show is so amazing. It’s so much fun to watch. Every episode makes me laugh. All the characters are so unique and very weird which makes them brilliant. I love Jess, Nick, Cece, Coach, Schmidt, and Winston.


#5 Supernatural

supernatural-season-12-cover

12 SEASONS BABY! Oh my god I’ve loved Supernatural forever! It went through a rough patch but when season eleven came on it was the best thing ever. After a couple seasons of only focusing on only angels and demons they went back to other supernatural beings and then all the stuff started happening and it’s so good. I love Cas he is my favorite. This show is one that when it ends I will be really sad. I said that like it is ending soon but it’s not. I think. The second part of season 12 just came back on and it was so great. If you haven’t watched Supernatural then what you are doing?


#4 A Series of Unfortunate Events

a6cedfb0c9736c220e2524938f3da72e92b3b7df.jpg

I have a review talking about why you should watch this show here. Oh my god this was the best thing that ever happened in the month of January. I finished the books just before  watching the show and so when I got to watch it after finishing up it was amazing and so great seeing all the characters I love on tv. Neil Patrick Harris was just fantastic as Count Olaf he was mean, evil, and funny all at the same time which is basically Count Olaf. I never saw the film version of A Series of Unfortunate Events and I’ve heard mixed feelings about it but as far as I know everyone loves this adaption.


#3 Superstore

superstore-2015

This show just came back on which I am so happy about because this show is just the best thing. It follows an odd group of people who work at a store that is like Walmart and all this random stuff happens and it’s just the best thing ever. This show takes a couple episodes to really kick in but after that it’s like non stop humor and I really love it. This show that you’ll love no matter what it’s just the best you really have to watch. It comes on NBC on Wednesdays.


#2 Victoria

victoria-tile-650x366.jpg

I liked I said I really like watching shows that take place in a different times and that are British. This show has the adorable Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria and it follows her journey through being queen. This show only has four episodes out right now in America and I’ve never loved thing any more. This show is fucking fantastic! I’m really into shows right now with royalty right now if you couldn’t tell. And anything with British actors. I’ve always loved Queen Victoria. I saw the film with Emily Blunt and I’m planning on reading this new book that came out on like last year. Jenna Coleman is so amazing as Queen Victoria she is just so freaking cute and she really shows Victoria grow as a character. I look forward to very episode each week and I need the new one right now!!!!


#1 BBC Class

p048smks

Again I love British television. Technically I watched in 2016 but you know what I’m rewatching it so I’m putting it on the list. I have a review for why you should watch this show which you can read here and after you read that review then you need to go watch this show because it is the best thing ever!!! You may think that Class is one of those shows where it takes place in high school but they casted a bunch of people who are in their twenties and are way to beautiful to be high schoolers which is true but you ignore that you finally watch the show and realize THIS SHOW IS TOO AMAZING FOR ME TO CARE ABOUT THAT. This show needs a season two really I want a season two. GIVE ME A SEASON TWO! WHY DON’T I HAVE A GOD DAMN SEASON TWO! I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! OR AT LEAST GIVE IT TO ME IN BOOK FORM! Sorry I just really love this show and I really want another season two. Everyone needs to watch it. Don’t watch for me, watch it for Patrick Ness and the beautiful people on the picture.


Well that was a lot of fun to write. I hope you guys this top 10 list. I’m planning on doing this for Spring, Summer, Fall, and all do something like this in December of this year then maybe next year. Do you guys agree with what I’ve said? Have you guys watched any of these shows? If not you really should. I hope you guys enjoy this top 10 list! Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these! Also make sure to follow my social media links and check out my link page for more ways to find stuff by me!

Least Favorite Books of 2016!

Greetings earthlings! This the year is coming to an end and I’ll my talking about my least favorite books this year. I just published my favorites list which you can find here and I decide after writing that I wanted to make a least favorite books of this year. They don’t have to be published this year but I have to read and dislike a great amount. Please don’t be offend if you like one of books, it’s just my opinion and these are in no order.….Let’s get started!


Trap Jam by Steven Barwin

28134078

I got this book at ALA and I don’t really know what made me grab this book. I don’t even know why I grabbed this book. When I decide to read this year, I went back and I read the summary I was just like what the hell is this?

Did I Mention I Love You? by Estelle Maskame

51+IZ2VEqfL.jpg

Again I don’t know why I got this book! It is about a girl who is a major push over falling in love with her stepbrother. WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH UP? The main lead is horrible character as she lets these horrible ‘friends’ of hers push her over, body shame her, pressure to do shit stuff, and these dumb ass teenagers also do drugs which is the cherry on top of that predictable sunday. Her step brother is the worst human being in this book, every time he talked I wanted to punch because everything he said was the douching thing ever.

She talks about how he is the best thing to ever happen to her and I’m like he took you to a Coke party against your will, remember that. I hate those female characters who just forgive guys who do douching to them because they love them with all their hearts and I’m like that’s not how love works. This books is worst and it was originally published on Wattpad which should have been warning number one. Wattpad has good stories but they don’t publish those, they publish the crappy romance with douche bag bad boy characters and bad female leads.

Don’t read this book. Just don’t!

The Awakening by L.J. Smith

51iSeO1wYiL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

The saying the book is always better then the show or film has never been more false.

Matched by Ally Condie

7735333.jpg

Do I really need to explain this one?

The Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin

Favorite Books in 2016

Greetings earthlings! This the year is coming to an end I’ll my talking about my favorite books this year. I did this last year which you can read here but I’m only doing books this year! I didn’t read that many book as much as I did last year which was 252 and I read 153 this year. I recording everything that I read to this year because I forget most of the things I read last year.  I according everything that I read to this year which I didn’t do last year and I regret that.….Let’s get started!


Books!

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

28356624

First on my list is the first book I read this year, which is Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and that was first also the first book I read last year. This is the fanfiction that Cath writes in Fangirl which follows Simon Snow and Baz and they fall in love and it’s so beautiful I love it! I pushed this book on like fifty different people including my sisters and my little made a tumblr for this book. I need like sequel no I need a whole series for this book. I loved the characters and I ship Simon and Baz so hard!


Wheel of Time books 6 -14 by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

tumblr_ndktgf4idh1tf2otqo1_1280

I had the first five Wheel of Time books on my 2015 list and since then I have finished the series and written two reviews on this series which you can find here and here. I never stop mentioning these books because they are awesome and I love them. If you have been around then you have probably heard the many stories of my journey with this series and if you haven’t then just go read my reviews.


Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare 

546b72c81f28be9e4a4565b890ccc4b2

I just redid my review for this book like two weeks ago so check that here. This book was kickass and emotions and I loved it! I know that most people don’t put first books on their favorites list but I’m doing for this one and my next pick because they were so amazing!


Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty

51Cpf+z1U+L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

Again this is a first book in a series but it’s still going on this list because this book is great! I love the characters, the plot, and all the magical elements in this book and it takes place at Baltimore which is an awesome house and I don’t live that far away from it so I go there all the time *not all the time but you get what I’m saying. I have two copies of this book one on my kindle which is the one I read the first time and then I went to ALA where Robert Beatty was signing and then I got another hardcover copy signed and then a signed arc of the second book which I haven’t read. Robert Beatty follows me on twitter so I think that’s awesome!


November 9 by Colleen Hoover

november-nine-9781501110344_lg

I like Colleen Hoover books like they are fun and easy to read but I’ve never called one my favorite but this one just blew me out of the water! It was beautiful and crazy and I’ve read so many times this year it’s crazy.


The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kirstoff

These books are epic! This is coming from a person who has read like three science fiction book including these. They are so pretty too! One of the reasons I started Illuminae was because it was so pretty and written in such a creative way. Funny story about my copy of Gemina, I got it at ALA when I was looking for a pair of rainbow sunglasses for my little sister and I find a pile of Gemina copies and I grabbed one and it had a giant sticker on it talking about the audio book. I spent like an hour trying to get the sticker off without ruining the book and I WAS SUCESSFUL!


Wonder by R.J Palacio

121009_DX_WonderBook.jpg.CROP.article250-medium

From the moment I started this book, I knew that I was going to cry. I was in the car when I was reading it and my mom was like ‘you aren’t allowed to cry in the car!’ so I was just trying to hold in tries.The book changes point of views giving different views on Auggie. Man this book was hard to get through not because it was boring but because it was so heartbreaking. It was still so cute at some point and this book was amazing.


Amy & Rodgers Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

7664334

This was the cutest thing EVER!! I can’t believe that I waited so read this book because it was great! This book made me laugh and fall in with the characters and the story. There wasn’t one thing I didn’t love about it. I never wanted the epic detour to end.


The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan 

26252859

So much fun! The Percy Jackson books have always been fun and adventurous books and this book and Magnus Chase are going back to how it was in the beginning. I loved this book more then Magnus Chase thought mainly because Magnus Chase was huge and went on for a long time. This book was 200 pages less then Magnus Chase and it’s fun and so funny. With Apollo being a God and then becoming mortal and him thinking that he can do and have all this stuff makes it so much. Percy and his mom and many other characters make appearances in this book which is alway fun. The end leaves on a sort of cliff hanger and now I can’t wait for the next one.


Forever Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon

27779008

I have a review for this here. I went to ALA and wait in line of this book of an hour and then read it in a day. It was so worth it. I’ve bee I love with this series forever and now I’ve finished and I just want to cry. This book was short like the rest but it still wrapped everything and had so much action and love and heartbreak and made want to hold onto Doon and the characters forever. It has a happy ending and this series will now hold a place in my heart.

Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon

6

Lorie Langdon keeps writing books and I keep falling in love with them. This is very different from Doon but it was still great. I did call who really did it through. I have a review for this book here.


Seven Tears at High Tide by C.B. Lee

25837167

 This book was so cute! It was basically a new take on the little mermaid. Even though Morgan is half human / half selkie. This book was so adorable and I love the relationship between the characters and how it grew throughout the story. This was just so adorable and I loved them together.


Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas

tumblr_static_909hq434xo0s0oowswwwo4gsc_640_v2

It took me so long to get into this series and I finally read it this year and holy crap it was amazing! Each book got better for each one! I thought that Throne of Glass was okay, Crown of Midnight was good, Heir of Fire was badass, Queen of Shadow was great, and Empire of Storms was fucking awesome! I have different reviews for all the books which you can find here, here, here, here, and here. The last books is coming out next year and I’m not at all ready for it come!


This fun! I may make a least favorite books list because that seems it’s going to be a lot of fun. I hope you guys enjoy this list and are following my book club here and other social media links. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these! Also make sure to follow my social media links.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST!

Greetings everyone and today I’m talking about Beauty and the Beast *this isn’t really a review this is just my fangirling!

So Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite films ever. I watched it all the time when I was little. I had a Belle ballgown that I wear everywhere seriously I’m not joking. I still like to pretend that I’m Belle. Basically the only thing that Belle and I have in common is that we like blue and yellow and books and have brown hair. Beauty and the Beauty and the Beast was my all time favorite movie and it still is. If you don’t know what Beauty and the Beast is then where the hell have you been!

This is a film came out in 1991 and the best disney movie ever but that is my opinion *it’s disney everyone thinks their favorite one is the best.  It follows a girl named Belle who loves books and everyone likes that she and her dad are really weird. One day her dad goes out into the woods and after some event that happened, he is in prisoned in a castle and Belle goes looking for him. She discovered that he is being held by a beast and she makes a trade  with him for her father’s freedom. Then her and the beast fall in love and other stuff happens and it’s wonderful!

I hate how people are always like say like the bad boy and good girl ships are basically like Beauty and the Beast. Those ships have people who are just like ‘how could you pick like your family over me? don’t do that’ and they acted like on and off again douchebags. Beast or Adam on the other hand isn’t that great in the beginning but after he and Belle both give each other a chance the two start to fall in love. And when Belle finds out that her dad is sick, he tells her that she should go to him. He loved her and he had to let her go because it was the right thing. It’s not like that in those romance novels where the two are forced together. I mean he gave Belle a library guys! LIBRARY!!!! THAT IS JUST SO ROMANTIC!

Don’t even get me started on the side characters. Adam became the beast after a curse was placed on him and everyone else in the castle so he became the beast and everyone became objects. We’ve got Mrs. Potts and her son Chip who is the cutest thing in the whole freaking world. There Lumiere and Cogsworth who are so funny. Then we have a lot more characters. You know that they are great after they stick by a man that got them cursed after so many years.

 Guys this film has a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. That’s how great it is. I’ve always wanted a live action version of this film. Like a real live action version not some random take on it. I mean Cinderella has like over thirty different live action films, come people pick a different princess. We have had different retellings of it that are live action but none of them left me satisfied *i will never be satisfied.

Until now! If you haven’t heard but you probably we heard, we are finally get a live action version of Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens aka Hermione Granger and Matthew Crawely!

I remember when they announced this like million years ago and I was so excited!! Unfortunately that was in like 2012 or something like that because Harry Potter had finished so the fact she was in it made me so happy and every year since I hoped and prayed that they would release something and this year I almost gave up but then they released the teaser trailer!!!!

This was released in May and I made a draft for it but I didn’t post it because I think it was like finals for me. Nothing else was released but then we got pictures and posters and then we finally got the full trailer.

I’ve watched sooooooooooo many times. I watch it in the mornings and when I get home from school. It just makes me sooooooooooooooooo happy. When those notes start playing in the beginning, the tears just start flowing. Emma looks so great as Belle and Dan looks like he is going to be a great beast. Gaston also makes an appearance in the trailer he is being played by Luke Evans and he looks like he is going to do a great job being  him. Josh Gad is in this film and he is Le Fou and Emma Thompson is in this as Mrs. Potts so Harry Potter reunion. We have Gandalf as Cogsworth which is so cool! We also have Ewan McGregor who was from the Star Wars prequels as Lumbiere.

I’m so excited for this film. It comes out next year so you know I’ll have a review for it. I’m hoping to go and rewatch the original film and make a review for it. And then watch it again because I love it soo much! I hope you enjoy this little fangirl post about a movie that is really close to my heart. Do you love this film as much as I do? Are you excited for the film in 2017? I don’t know if this posting three times a week thing is going to work because  I’m behind already on banking up post. I post review, rants, and other stuff one this blog once every weeks. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!

Favorite Things in 2015 | Books, TV Shows, Music, etc

Hello everyone! This the year is coming to a end I’ll my talking about my favorite things this year. I’ve been wanting to make one of these but I keep forgetting what I’ve like over months and I kept forgetting to make one.

The categories are books, movies, tv shows, and music. Not make up and dress because I have nothing to offer in that category because I don’t buy make up….Let’s get started!


Books!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell 

{1A329402-69B1-4BF7-97E5-E71EDB545D18}Img400.jpg

 

This was the first book I read this year and it was one I had always wanted to read. I had read Eleanor & Park last year and that was painfully beautiful. But what fangirl doesn’t want to read a book about being a fangirl.

It was soooo cute! Cath and Levi’s relationship so adorable and Cath is so relatable. Levi is the perfect boyfriend ever. He works at Starbucks and reads her fan fictions. Every fangirl in the world must read this book. There must a code written somewhere that says all fangirls must read this book.

READ IT!!!

READ IT!!!

REAAAAADDDDD ITTTTTT!!!!!!!


 

The Mortal Instruments / Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

image

Okay so I’ve wanted to read before of these series but I have never gotten to it into this year and I’m sooooo glad I did. I read the Mortal Instruments first because I thought the Infernal Devices was going to over hyped so I didn’t read it before TMI.

I loved TMI so when I finished I went through I withdraw so I used all my money to buy Clockwork Angel. It took me a 100 pages to get into the story because at first it seemed like a remake of City of Bones but it in a different time period an different characters. Then it turned out to be Awesome!!!!!

I need the Shadowhunters right now and if it turns out to be successful than maybe a Infernal Devices spin off!!!!!!!!!

JANURAY 12 ON FREEFORM!!!WATCH IT!!!

I also need Lady Midnight and a Malec Wedding!


 

Binge by Tyler Oakley

image

If you haven’t read my read my review on this book then click here. If you have then you should know that I think Tyler Oakley and this book is perfect and amazing. As I said in the review I cried three times. When he announced this book, I went preorder this book and I waited for this arrive.

It was sooooooo amazing!!!!!

I loved it! I’ve read it a lot because of I love it. It’s one of my favorite books I’ve read this year. The thing is about this is I didn’t love this book because it was written by my role model and my fangirl god. I loved it because it gives me comfort and reminders me of what I want to be.

This is a must read because it’s not another youtube book.


 

Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (Books 1 – 5)

image

A guy that I don’t really like that much recommend this series and it was the most I’ve ever liked him. This is probably one of my favorites series ever even though I’m book six. It’s awesome! Robert Jordan just writes great characters and great plot lines to keep you hanging on.

My favorite characters are Mat and Moraine. Mat is always there for Rand because Rand will sometimes need to be put in his place and Moraine is such awesome character. She doesn’t put up with Rand when he isn’t in his place and likes to not listen to her. No one really takes her until book five but before that everyone is just like “We should tell Moraine this” Said no one ever.

I do like the other characters like the main character, Rand, but he can be really pathetic.


 

Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout 

image

I’ve been wanting to read this for along time. Because I wanted to know if it was a series I should love or make fun of. Look at those covers. When you get the real book though it sprinkles.

This is book about Katy and Daemon. Katy is a teenage girl with a book blog and Daemon is hot alien. I bet you can’t guess what happens next……THEY FALL IN LOVE AND CRAZY ALIEN WARS START HAPPENING!!

It’s very good though but very cheesy. The jokes were very funny. It was awesome and great. I have a book blog so I can only guess that lux is real.


 

A Song of Fire and Ice by George R.R. Martin (Books 1 -3)

image

So I started reading A Song of Fire and Ice and wow is it intense! I’ve just gotten past the Red Wedding and had a breakdown at school. This series is awesome!!

There a lot of violence and plot twists to keep you interested. A long with great characters who aren’t whinny babies. Some are crazy. Some are great. Some are just freakin’ AWESOME!!!!

I haven’t seen the show yet but I’ve been planning on watching it soon.


 

Tv Shows

Scream Queens

image

I was waiting for this shows since it was first announced and it was worth the wait. It’s created by the same people who created Glee and American Horror Story. I’ve watched Glee and I liked it at first but then it got stupid and said somethings that just made me mad. I’ve never seen American Horror Story because it looks creepy af.

This is probably the funniest tv show I’ve seen in a long time. Chanel Oberlin, played by Emma Roberts, is the character funniest character ever with her being “Super Gross Rich”. All the Chanels were perfect and Chad is just sooooooo funny.

The storyline is very interesting too. As a killer in a Red Devil stalks girls in a sorority. The killer is after revenge because their dead in the bathtub in the sorority house and is now killing everyone.

Come the horror stay the humor.


 

Community 

image

Community is a show about Jeff who was a lawyer who faked his degree and after getting caught he is sent Greendale Community to a real degree. This show took a little while to get into but after the season 1 paintball episode things got crazy. The show went full on parody mode.

This was a good thing through the show got funnier and better. The characters changed too which was so for the best or else it would have failed and wouldn’t have been picked back up.


 

Music

All songs by Pentatonix

image

So you know when you met someone new and you start suggesting things that you like and try and get them into. Well that is how get my PTX obsession. One of my friends suggest them to me so I went home and listened to them.

Them have changed music for me. Once I hear one of their covers it becomes my favorite version. Their original is are candy to my ears. I love Rose Gold and all the other songs on their new album. They are just ear candy.

I wish I had found them soon or maybe not because if I did I probably wouldn’t be okay.


 

Blue Neighborhood by Troye Sivan 

image

Troye Sivan has a beautiful voice. It’s like sex on stick beautiful. And his songs are the same way. I have been waiting for this album for what feels like forever. Because we were told that we were getting one and now we have and it’s beautiful.

The songs give me sooooooooooooo many feels. All I want to is listen to theses songs all day. If you don’t know who Troye Sivan, he is a youtuber turned singer. Well he still does youtube. I’ve been a huge fan of his since forever. He was my first youtuber.

I listen to this album because it’s amazing.


 

So this had been my favorite’s list for 2015. Hopefully I will make more in the future years. I hope you enjoy this.

You know you love fiction,

Darling
