Grace’s Reaction to Love, Simon Trailer!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about my thoughts and feelings about the Love, Simon trailer!

*warning! I talk about both the trailer and the book so spoilers

So it’s out in the world and I have a lot of things on it! I have never done one of these before and I probably won’t do it again as I don’t really watch trailers anymore. Trailers give me anxiety about movies I’m really excited for and I get really scared and I like about them until I get really bad aches. There have been a lot of Books to Movie Adaptation in the works this year and I’m excited for a lot of them including this one but I watched the trailer because I wanted to even though I knew I shouldn’t and now I have a lot of anxiety!

Let’s just start with the whole trailer in general. Well it’s a good first trailer, it gives you a feel for the characters and the story without giving you a lot of information on them. Literally the only thing that you really learn about anyone is that Simon is gay and he is in high school that it’s! Which is good. You can’t give away the plot in the whole trailer or then no one is going to go see it and it’s also trailer #1 so when more trailers come out we will probably get more and I need more! I thought the straight people coming out scene was funny with their parent’s reaction. I’m guessing that’s like a fantasy scene in Simon’s mind. There is also like a clip of Simon almost kissing someone under the mistletoe and is that a fantasy thing too? Or is that something that is happening? I’m confused! And that’s thing with this trailer, it has confused me!

I mean I did like it and I’m excited about the movie but it has confused me to the point where I had to write a blog post about it! We see Simon looking at Bram and then Bram is kissing someone and he seems upset about it. What was that? I’ve checked like five times on IMBD and it says that it is Bram so like what the fuck is happening!! I know it’s just a trailer and it’s hasn’t given us a lot to go on but if we are following the plot of the movie then you might what to be a little better at keeping secrets!

I probably just need to calm down and wait for the next trailer. Becky Albertalli if you are reading can you tweet me everything is going to be okay. In fact can everyone just tweet me everything is going to be okay. This is a short post but it was never going to be long in the first so. I hope you enjoyed this really random post and make sure to look out for different and a little more sane posts coming your way soon.

Let’s talk about Miraculous Ladybug!

Greetings Earthlings! And welcome back to Let’s talk about it because this my third one of these I’m now making it a series. For this post I’m talking about Miraculous Ladybug and my thoughts and theories for season two which is coming out in December!

WARNING IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCH SEASON ONE THERE WILL BE SPOILERS SO ENEMIES OF THE HEIR BEWHERE

*HAHAHA harry potter jokes

ANOTHER WARNING THIS POST CONTAINS THE CRAZY RANTS OF AN OBSESSED GIRL

FINAL WARNING SAID OBSESSED GIRL DID NOT DO AS MUCH RESEARCH AS SHE THOUGHT AND SO SOME OF THE INFORMATION MAYBE INCORRECT OR NOT CONFIRMED

ladybug

 So this is also my third post talking about this show, maybe I should make a category for it too but that’s not what we are talking about right! Season two has been announced for December and will be coming onto Netflix which is so closer but yet so far away at the same. I have a lot of thought and feelings on this show though and about season two so we are going to talking about my feelings, my theories, and everything we know about season two right now. I do have two post talking about this show which you can read here and here and yes I am older than target age on Netflix and I have watched almost ten times. DON’T JUDGE ME!

This show follows Marinette and Adrien who are also the superheroes Ladybug and Cat Noir and every episode they go up against the villain HawkMoth who does his dirty work by sending out Akumas which give sad people powers and they become villains. The show has become really popular since it aired two years with it now getting a Live Action remake *which i hope doesn’t suck and getting it’s own comics. It is a French show and it takes place in Paris. Anyone of all ages can like this show like it’s not for kids even though Netflix says other wises with it’s age limits and even the creator has gone on saying that anyone can watch this which is nice. Ever since the first season ended, fans have been waiting for a season two for awhile and we’ve been given information about some things that are going to happen so let’s start with that. *Also I should add that I have not watched any trailers or script reads for the next season. Let’s start off with the heroes we are getting!

 

 

 

We have more Miraculous Carriers coming this season which I already knew but we have officially been confirmed on who is carrying them which I’m so excited about. Also all of these guys have been Akumized so fun fact. I kind of figured that it would be Nino and Alya but that was just my theory and we kind of already knew about Chloe becoming Queen B. So from what I’ve heard on Tumblr is that Marinette is going to be the one who hands them out and is there a reason for that? Like can Master Fu like not doing it anymore? Maybe he’s got a listen of the people he wants to give them to and he makes Marinette pass them. If she is the one picking them out and I’m not surprised that she picked Alya because in the origins episode she does try and make Alya become Ladybug because she thinks that Alya would be the better hero. Nino I can also see as a good hero because he just wants to do what he thinks is right and he’s such a good friend.

Chloe I still don’t like that she would be a good hero because she causes that half of the Akamized victims to get upset. *i’m re watching the show as I right this and like the first six episodes are the ones where she has nothing to do with them. I do like my theory from my last post where I said that she accidentally does something nice or she gets like accidentally get the box and it’s meant from someone else and she gets the miraculous and becomes Queen B. I just like that it would be so funny! I mean I do want a storyline where she grows as a character because I think that it would be a nice story. Also the name Queen B like really really fits Chloe though because when you hear Queen B you think of the a mean girl or Regina George from Mean Girls. I was at practice today and I was just like thinking at Miraculous and Mean Girls and I was just imagining a moment like in Mean Girls but with Miraculous characters. It’s like ‘Raise your hand if you’ve ever been akumized.’

The city of Paris:

mean girls.gif

My other one is ‘Raise your hand if you’ve been akumized because Chloe made you upset.’ Marinette and Adrien’s class:

mean girls

I can always enjoy a good mean girls joke. I really hope that the girl from the finale who pretend she had the fox miraculous what’s her name ‘tried to destroy my ship’ it doesn’t matter she’s dead now. Okay she’s not dead, I just hate her and I want her gone. That episode felt like an hour and it’s only 21 minutes and it gave me some much anxiety. If she does come back then I want her not to be an awful person. I keep seeing fanart of her and Marinette becoming friends and I’m like nope. I want her to be gone but you never like have those characters that just appear once in this. Like they never go away. If she tries to mess things up again then I’ll hope that Alya beats her up. *this idiot just now looked at the overview for season two on the miraculous wiki page and Lila is coming back

I also want to know what powers these guys have because I still have some questions on everyone else’s powers. Like so we say that other chicks akumized version of the fox miraculous powers and I’m wondering if they are the same or are they different. I feel like they are to be different because that chick had a staff if I remember correctly *i skipped the last episode of season one because like i said it gives me anxiety so my memory could serve me wrong and it seems like Alya doesn’t. Her costume is cool, I like all their costume in that picture so hopefully I like them when I watch them on tv. Nino has like a shell because he’s got the turtle and according to Google Translate, his name means shell but Google translate sometimes can’t be trusted *i do know a little french because i took French for two years I got so off topic let’s get back to it. Like I was say before I started making sure people know I don’t just use Google Translate like I know things, so he has like a shell on his back and I’m wondering if it’s going to be like Captain America shield because that would be so cool.

Also what are they going to say when they want to transform? Is Nino going to say like ‘Shell on!’? I can see Chloe saying with like strips but I’m not sure what Alya would say to transform like I’m super confused on what she said. I really hope that like they aren’t unable to figure out who they are because I will be so mad if they are just like ‘Hey it’s you!’ like I will flip the table. Because I know I did not sit through a whole season of Marinette and Adrien not recognizing each other. I mean I do want them to know who they are but I want everyone to know who they are because it’s not fair to me or to them or AAHAHAHAH! Next I want to talk a little bit about the kwamis and the miraculous because I got some things to say.

miraculous.gif

I did talk a little bit about Kwamis in my second Miraculous post and I still stand by what I said in that, I’m just going to be repeating that and talking about the miraculous and powers and stuff. In my last post, I talked about how I wanted to learn more about the kwamis and I also want to know more the other people who have hold the Miraculous. I know what to know more. Like can Kwamis feel other Kwamis when they are around? Do they know who the others are? Do they have powers or are they just there to give others powers? I like both Tikki and Plagg like they are great and represent them when they are Ladybug and Cat Noir well that’s what I think sometimes. I’m really excited to meet the new kwamis next season well I guess we’ve sort of already met the turtle kwami but we don’t really know him. So for the Bee kwami like I’m imagining him or her to be like so sassy and like not put up with Chloe’s attitude. It would just be so funny! *this idiot also just learned that the bee kwami is called Pollen and the turtle one is Wayzz and this idiot needs to do better research before she begins ranting

I am curious about what other powers our heroes have because according to a picture I saw of them with like fins and I know that we are getting a swimming episode and I’m not sure how I feel about it. My first thought was that Barbie movie sequel that was about fairies but for some reason it changed and became a mermaid movie *is it sad that i remember that? I’m just saying that because it seems like a change of pace which I get why they’re doing it because you can’t do the same thing over and over again you have to change things and I might love that episode who knows! Back to what I was saying I want to know whatever powers they might also have because I feel like for right now we’ve scratched the surface of their powers. Will their be more than just the regular powers and the water powers? Do the powers differ for each person who holds the miraculous?

Also how do you know if someone is right for a miraculous and how would their powers change if they used it like HawkMoth? You know not using it for good. I mean I don’t want to see this happen like my heart couldn’t handled it but I am curious on what would it be like. I also with HawkMoth’s powers what are his like with a person who is using them for good? I know that they are meant to create superheroes but like he uses them to create super villains when people have negative emotions and I’m just wondering if you need like happy emotions to create superheroes Like how do emotions play a part in making these heroes? Does HawkMoth like brain washed them or mind control them? Do you even need to emotions to become a hero? And how do you decide if a person is worthy of being a hero? I just have so many questions. And how does he know if a person is sad? Like does a sad single go off and he goes into his Moth Cave and then it suddenly a sound comes on and it’s ‘Na NA NA Na HawkMoth! HawkMoth! HawkMoth!’ *hahahaha i’m so funny.

I would also like to met some of the other past miraculous holders because i feel like that would be really cool. I just want to learn about everything and met the other people who had the powers and see how they used them. Also I got it into my head that everyone who gets the ladybug and cat miraculous are soulmates and I’m too far into believing this that I don’t think I can get out of it. Like how cute would that be though? Another thing do the earrings and ring only have to go a girl and a boy? Can both genders get the miraculous or are they like meant for one gender? I’m just curious. How did the Moth miraculous get lost? Did someone try and get rid of it? like what’s up with people thinking it was lost forever? So moral of this topic I’m interested to see what other powers people have and I’m so looking forward to seeing that come up next season and I want more answers. Now let’s talk about HawkMoth because what the hell? We literally none nothing about him!

hawkmoth.png

Again I sort of went into this in my last post about this show and I literally just talked about it a second ago so yeah. If you’ve read my last posts than you know that I thought  Adrien’s dad but now I’m not sure about anything anymore! Like who is the fuck is this guy? I thought I knew but now I don’t know. Are we going to learn who he is? And who is the new villain coming in? Will we learn who they are off the bat or is it going to be a mystery? Is the new villain going to be worse than? Like I was saying before I want know more about this guy’s power because he seems goes akumaing butterflies like how I go through Gold Fish like there is an unlimited amount! But there a bottom to that Gold Fish box and miraculouses only last for a small amount of time so how is this guy always in the ready? Are the powers different from Marinette and Adrien’s Miraculous? Like because their’s are more powerful that they have a limited about of time? I don’t know! Maybe because we just don’t see him a lot. We seem him do the thing with the butterfly and then he talks to them and tells what to do but he still like appears through out the thing. I don’t know anything more!!!!! *sighsssssssssssss 

I have noticed that a lot of the adults seem better at almost getting their miraculous than the teens do. Like the adults are like doing both of their things and trying to get their miraculous but the teens are like hey I’m going to do my thing later! I mean that’s just want I think I could do be wrong. It just seems like that right now. I’m honestly like second guessing everything that I write because I don’t know what to believe like! Season two could come and like shake the whole thing up and I will have to like re think the whole thing and make another post about it. I don’t what to make another Let’s talk about post for Miraculous well is this even a Let’s Talk about It post? Because it some how turned it Grace crazily asks questions like she has someone to answer them for her. I am making a post for season two when it comes out and it might ten thousands words or might just be a video of me screaming but it will come.

Also another thing I noticed is in the American Version of Miraculous in the origins episode when HawkMoth transforms he says Dark wings rise and I was just like what the hell? Dark Wings rise? Like what the hell? Why Dark Wings? Is it because he is bad and if you add dark to something it makes villainous? If he wasn’t a villain would it still be Dark Wings Rise? Does it have something to with moths? Do moths have dark wings and I’ve just never noticed? If that’s the reason then I feel really foolish. I don’t know! And why did he pick the name HawkMoth? I get the moth part but I don’t understand the hawk part. With Ladybug and Cat Noir they wasn’t a lot really a chance in picking their name, I mean their miraculous are the earrings of Ladybug and the ring of the Black Cat and their costumes match their miraculous so it would be weird and kinda of stupid for one of them to pick the name Squidward the blue butterfly when they have miraculous that is not Squidward the blue butterfly related. HawkMoth for some reason just puts a Hawk in front of the Moth. Is it because Hawk makes you seem cool or like the leader or like you’re some badass villain that can’t be defeated? I just want to know why the name HawkMoth was the first thing to pop into his head.

SO it’s been said that we are getting a new villain next season or he’s getting a partner that is much better than him. Like is this new guy not going to do the same plan every episode? Seriously Hawkmoth I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again you need a new plan because I’m pretty sure that you’ve akamized almost everyone in the city of Paris and you even went as far as to akamaize a kid which I think is a pretty lower move and I think it also means you are out of options. I really don’t want the whole Marinette or Adrien to get akamaized storyline that everyone else in the fandom seems to want and I’m like NO! NO! NO! I can’t even read angsty fanfic for this show without getting emotional *which by the way there is a lot of angsty fanfic for this fandom? why? what makes you think I could get through that happening in the show! And why do we want Adrien to go through that? HE’s been through so much! I’m done talking about this now. I’m on going to talk about my next and finale topic before I’m done which is the two leads of this show, Marinette and Adrien.

miraculous.jpg

I’ve talked about them before because they are the leads of the show and I ship them so hard and it makes me mad sometimes and angry. For season two we’ve been told that there are going to be kisses between Marinette and Adrien and that they are going to be a couple at some point during the show and from the pictures it looks like that’s happening. I know the trailer of sorts came out and that like scenes with them but like I said. I haven’t watched it and I don’t really want to watch it because I’m terrified of what could happen in the next season if you couldn’t tell. Let’s just get to the point if these two don’t figure out who they are then I’m going to lose my shit!

Also we have been told that they are getting together in season two but we haven’t been told if it’s just Adrien and Marinette that are becoming a couple or is you know Ladybug and Cat Noir. I’m excited for two see them as a couple but I want them to become a couple when they realize who they are because if they become a couple and then realize who they are they will most likely break up. I’m just so scared for their relationship because I can see it go very badly and I don’t want that! I JUST WANT THEM TO BE HAPPY!!! I think that we have been told that a reveal is happening and I want them to be happy with the reveal. I don’t want this angsty sad reveal okay no. Also we are getting a balcony scene with Marinette and Cat Noir and if you’ve ever looked at fanart or read fanfic then you know that there’s a balcony scene when Adrien has regretted Marinette and Ladybug has rejected Cat Noir and you know they still don’t know that they are the same person. Is that going to happen? I don’t the whole I like you but I like someone else no they are the SAME PERSON!!

Okay I’m done!

Moral of the post: Season two will either bring me so much enjoy or it will slowly kill me.

Well that’s all I have to say for this post! And about this show for awhile because I’m done talking about it. Like I have a headache because it. I have not watched any trailers because I need a break and I’m super super scared for season two! Also I’m really excited for season two and I can’t wait for it. I’m also really scared about somethings that could happen and I don’t want Lila there but I guess with Chloe becoming a hero we need to someone to make others upset. If you have watched Miraculous then are you really excited for season two? Do you agree with what I had to said? What do you disagree with me on? Are you as excited for as season two as much as me? I can’t wait! And I’m scared! If Thomas Astruc like found this post, I’m pretty sure it would just be him snickering at me. I honestly have no idea what’s being posted next on this blog because I’m doing in the past *doctor who theme song starts playing Again I love this show, it’s my life, and if you haven’t watched it then YOU HAVE TO! I’m so excited for season two! I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure to look out for more coming your way soon. You should follow my book club here and other social media links.

Let’s talk about the Wayward Sisters!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about my concerns for the Supernatural spin off, the Wayward Sisters! *this is going to give me much hate but let’s just do it

supernatural-jody-claire-alex

Supernatural is a show that is has been on since 2005, has twelve seasons, is very popular, and is one of my favorite moments so the fact that it is getting a spin off should not come as a surprise. A spin off was going to happen and it was going to be called Bloodlines. They filmed a backdoor pilot episode but it didn’t work out in the end. Fans have been asking for a show about these girls Alex, Clarie, and Jody since they were all showed living together and a little before that. I wanted one and now we are getting one which is giving mixed emotions.

I am excited for this because I love these characters and I show about them could be great but here’s the two problems I have with it which is the writers, the network, and the Supernatural fandom. I’m going to tell you a story about a wonderful and fantastic show called Class I have a review for it here. Class is a story with a lot of diversity, great characters, a fantastic storyline, and was created by the great Patrick Ness. It was amazing and it was a spin off to Doctor Who a very popular show. Unfortunately Class did get treated well. By the Network and by the Doctor Who fandom as the network wouldn’t advertisement and the Doctor Who fandom wouldn’t watch it because it wasn’t Doctor Who. I’m telling you all this because I’m scared that the same thing will happen to this show as one CW isn’t the best network.

I’m scared that it won’t treat it fairly because it won’t be like Riverdale or Supernatural or it will expect higher views. And I say probably expect higher views is because I scared that the Supernatural fandom will treat it like because I’m sorry the Supernatural fandom is toxic and sexist to basically a lot of the female characters. Being a toxic fandom is common in very big popular fandoms but Supernatural us a very mean group of fans. They are sexist to any female characters and so are the writers and they are mainly mean to them because they don’t want them to have any chances of screwing Destiel. Guys you need to chill!!!! Give these characters a chance and the writers of Supernatural aren’t better and I don’t really want them writing this show. They’ll mess up it and we won’t get a good show.

That’s all I have to say but moral of the story is: let’s treat this show right, give it a chance, and just chill for millisecond. Are you guys excited for this show? Are you guys going to watch the show? And are you going to watch all the episodes and not just the ones with the Supernatural boys? Let me know! I’ll probably watch them if I have time. But right now I’m mad about Supernatural right now. I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way.

13 Reasons Why TV SHOW review / Rant | Epic Adaptations

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about the hit Netflix tv show based off the book by Jay Asher which is my July book of the month!

13ReasonsWhy

If you don’t know, I’m doing a book club called Epic Adaptations where every month I pick a book that has a movie adaptation and I review both the adaptation and the book. If you want to know more about it then click out this post here and if you want to read about my thoughts on the book then click here to check that out. If you like 13 Reasons Why then you shouldn’t read this review because you probably won’t like it.

So if you remembered from my review of the book then you should know that I don’t really like 13 Reasons Why the book and if you want to know then go read read my review of the book. I wasn’t looking forward to this show even before I re read the book, I still wasn’t looking forward to this show. Then it dropped and it trended on Tumblr for like a week and I went to school and everyone was talking about it. It was the new thing. I tired to give it a shot and I got like two minutes in and then I stopped because I didn’t like it. It just wasn’t close to the book in anyway. Now that I have re read the book and I’m doing this so I have watched the show and I don’t like it either. It just wasn’t good. I only really liked Clay and hell sometimes I didn’t even really like him at some points.

I can’t do a non spoiler part because I just have to rant about everything so if you haven’t watched this you have to leave because I’m going to spoil you in this.

WARNING SPOILERS

SERISOUSLY JUST LEAVE

OKAY! So where the hell do I began? The first episode was good which surprised. It was pretty close to book besides some thing like making Hannah and Clay friends and giving more flashbacks and I didn’t hate it. Liked that it made them friends because I thought it would have been better for their relationship. I’m thinking my rating will be like a high 90% but then episode to rolled around and my rating and my liking dropped. It dropped like every episode.

Okay that’s start with the fact that Tony is like Hannah Baker’s freaking secret agent. He was being really weird and mysterious and it was annoying as hell. I didn’t like his character. His only purpose in the book was for Clay to steal the walkman from him which Clay does in the show but then Tony just shows up everywhere like some old guy that appears in fantasy movies to give warnings and inspirational messages and I found it so weird! I didn’t really like his character because for one like I said before he was weird and one that’s literally all he is around for. His character is only for being that and that’s it nothing else so you don’t get to learn anything about him that would make him interesting. Guess the fact that he’s a secret agent is what makes him an interesting character but I didn’t it like that.

Another thing I didn’t like which was something I was half way looking forward to was us getting a closer look at all the characters. We never met any other characters besides Clay and Hannah in the book of 13 Reasons Why so when I watched Christine’s review of the show she said that we get a closer look at the characters who have tapes and Hannah’s parents. The other characters that have tapes in this story suck. They aren’t great people and they for the first couple episodes they are going after Clay because they don’t want the tapes to go to Bryce who raped Hannah and is the worst out of all them. I’m like why you guys all still friends? You know what he did what the fuck are you guys doing? None of them are interesting and the story is trying to get me to connect with them but I can’t. We one don’t know a lot about them or see them in any scene where they are doing something good. I liked Hannah’s parents because they are going through something that is hard to go through and it’s probably the only thing that is shown well on this show.

Can we talk about the weird dream sequence with Hannah’s mom killing Clay? What was that? I mean I would understand why he would have that if he had listen to his tape and then had met up with Hannah’s mom and had that dream I would understand but he didn’t so what was the point. Also if you are going to make Clay and Hannah closer then they were in the book why is Clay saying that they weren’t close! What was that! They are clearly friends! Also can we talked about the fact that Hannah doesn’t even die the same way! In this she gets in the bath and cuts her wrist but in the book she takes pills. Why did we need to make this change? To make it more dramatic because that doesn’t look go on Netflix or the people who run the show. You literally changed her death to make it more dramatic.

Also they shouldn’t have add the suicide or the rape scenes to the show because it can trigger people and they knew. The people went to therapist and specialist to figure out how they should do these scenes and they were told not to do it because people would be triggered and they completely ignored that! The message is still the same for this show from the book which is that love can heal depression which I don’t agree and they have this whole thing were Clay feels guilty about Hannah because she said that he could have saved her if he loved her. I have two reaction for this which is no not true she has no right to tell him this because it’s not true. It doesn’t work like that. And two this boy cared about you so much. Yes he could have been a better friend at some points but he loved her. THIS SHOW MAKES ME SO MAD! I need to stop. Okay we were done! This show started out really well but with every episode I liked less and it got less accurate.

Accuracy: 43%

The character names were right, the people on the tapes were right but I didn’t remember Justin being on there twice. It wasn’t that close to the book and I won’t be watching it again. I didn’t have a fun time watching this. It was boring it has the same messages as the book which I didn’t like and the show runners did somethings that I didn’t agree with which is why I’m giving it a D.

Rating: D for being really boring

I’m not giving it an F because I do think that the acting is great and I did enjoy that first episode so I don’t think can give it an F. I didn’t enjoy it and I wouldn’t watch it again because it felt longer then 13 freaking episodes! Also WHY IS THERE TO BE A SEASON TWO! WE DON’T NEED A SEASON TWO! *sighs to calm down Okay I’m done. For now at least. I’m not going to watch season two because it probably has nothing to do with the book and can we talk about how weird it is that Netflix renewed this but canceled Girl Boss, Sense 8, and the Get Down. What the hell? I have a poll on Twitter to decide what book I should read next for Epic Adaptations so if you could please check that out.

img_3977

Right now it’s between The Handmaid’s Tale and Still Star-Crossed and I can’t decide so please help! I don’t know what post is coming up next but look out for it. I’m so glad I’m done reviewing this show. 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. You should follow my book club here and other social media links.

13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher BOOK review / RANT

Greetings Earthling! Today I’m talking about 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, not the show, which is also my July book of the month!

WARNING SPOILERS

AND COMPLAINTS FROM A VERY BITTER GIRL

BUT FIRST A MESSAGE FROM THAT GIRL

HEY EVERYONE! So I need you to read this part before we began the review. I need to say  this because I have a feeling that I might make some people upset for this review. I know that we all have different opinions and the world and I know that I can’t change people’s opinions but I don’t want to hurt anyones feelings. So if you liked 13 Reasons Why then you need to not read this review. I say this again in the review but I’m going to give you this warning now. Okay? Okay. You can continue.

Rating: D – Nothing seem to happen. The characters had a bad attitude or were boring until the end. Story didn’t know what it wanted.

You can’t stop the future
You can’t rewind the past
The only way to learn the secret
…is to press play.”

*sighs deeply of frustration and disappointment about the kids in my generation. So a lot of you have probably heard about the show that claims it is based off this book. It’s not, it just has the same name as the book. If you couldn’t tell I’m very against the show. If you like the show or the book then I think you should leave because it’s about to get mean. I’m sorry.

This is my second time reading this book, I read it the first time in like 2014 and I liked it. I didn’t love it mainly because reading books about suicide has always been a touchy subject for me. I gave it three stars the first time which is a rating I have given to another books that deal with suicide like Playlist for the Dead and All The Bright Places. I thought it was okay book that dealt for a subject that is hard to talk about, trust me I know I’m writing about it and it’s hard. It’s also hard to read. For this book and All the Bright Places, I know that these book have a lot of controversy. Some find them great and these books helped them but for people like me it wasn’t like that.

I reread this book because it is my July book of the month for my book club and because the show had come out and I didn’t remember a lot. I haven’t seen the show yet but I will. I started watching it but I could already see that it was different for the book and mainly because it was popular so I decided that I would wait for the hype to die down before watching the show. Like I said this book wasn’t for me but I still liked it then I reread it and I didn’t like it as much.

This book follows Hannah Baker and Clay Jenson, Hannah has committed suicide and Clay was a guy who always wanted to be Hannah’s friend or maybe something a little bit more but he never got the chance. A couple days after her death, he revives a books full of tapes that has Hannah talking about people who did things to cause her to take her own life and there are seven tapes which are doubled sided, making it 13 Thirteen Reasons. The only people who get them are the ones who have a tape and Clay is on one of these tapes. Now I like Jay Asher and I like what he was going for, I got to read some interview questions that where in the back of his book. He talked about how he went around and talked to girls and what they struggled in high school but the general theme of this book bothers me. Which is that love can heal depression.

This is a trope and an idea that has been passed around through different shows and books and I hate it. Love can help you through depression but it can’t heal depression. This is shown by the fact that Hannah says that no one really seem care enough about her and if they had then she would have been better.

A lot of you cared, just not enough.”

I hate this belief and I hate it keeps coming up in different things. Hannah also blames everyone for taking her own life. Taking your life is your own decision and even though things bit have happened to lead to this decision still you shouldn’t do that. I didn’t like the fact that Clay is blamed for not loving Hannah and not being there for her and it’s said he could have saved her. I just didn’t like it! I did like some parts of this book though. I like *well I didn’t really like but i found it heartbreaking how Clay wanted to be there for Hannah before she died. Clay is a good character and honestly he was the one out of the all the types that I cared about and he didn’t do anything terrible to her. Also even though I’ve complained about Hannah I did like her and she didn’t deserve anything that happened to her *no one deserves to go through that. I mean she got her first kiss and then a rumor went around that she and Justin did more then kiss and everyone at school started believe and then her friends abandoned her and it’s so sad.

Another thing that I liked is the message that our actions and what we do have affects on people that surround us. I mean one of the reasons that I think Hannah does these tapes is to tell everyone about how their actions effected her and her life. I mean Justin started a rumor that everyone believed and then her friends stopped being her friends and a lot of other stuff followed. One of the things that you should think about after reading this book is your actions and how the affect others.

The book also deals with what people think about you and saying terrible things about you and also rape. Near the end of the book, Hannah gets rape by a guy and it’s a really hard scene. Just reading it was hard. This whole book was hard. I’m sorry if you liked this book and it changed your life then I’m happy for you but it didn’t have the same affect on me. I thought this book was okay, I just don’t like the messages through out it. The only message that I liked was that the things we do and say have effects on people. I’ll be having my Spiderman: Homecoming review coming next week followed by my 13 Reasons Why show review.

Let’s talk about Spiderman: Homecoming!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m going to talk about my thoughts on the new Spiderman movie starring Tom Holland which comes out July 7, 2017.

img_3386

Spiderman or Peter Parker is a very popular comic character and one of my favorites superheroes. I normally would explain things about what I was talking about but you should know about Spiderman. Peter Parker was bitten by a spider and then he got powers. He is a great character who is very funny and I love his comics even though I just got into them recently. They are all great. He has had many chances at having live action movies. In 2002 -2007 we got three spiderman movies staring Tobey Magurie as Peter Parker and Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson and a lot of other characters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have never seen these movies completely before but I don’t want to because they look terrible. I’ve seen some scenes from these, I’m sorry they look really bad. I know people like these movies but I don’t understand how. I mean seriously even after Spiderman 3??? *i’m sorry i know we all have different and i shouldn’t judge these movies because I haven’t seen them. People still like these better than the two movies made in 2012 -2014 which starred Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a lot of unpopular opinions but the fact is that I like these movies. I loved Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. They had such great chemistry during this movie and I thought that it was a good movie. It was a good take on Spiderman, it was a deep film that followed a kind of depressing Peter Parker. I’ll admit I could have gone without the lizards and the second one had too many villains which made the third movie Spiderman fail.

These movies didn’t get another one which did upset me but for Captain America: Civil War it was announced they were recasting Spiderman and my sister showed me a picture of the guys they were thinking about casting and all I could think was ‘damn these guys are so young that they could be babies’. I didn’t hear anything else for the movie because I wanted to be surprised but then after awhile I forgot until my dad sent me the second Civil War trailer.

I texted my dad back in all caps SPIDERMAN. Then I saw the movie which was amazing and I think everyone should want to watch and I fell in love with two people that day: Peter Parker *well i already loved him but i loved him even more and Tom freaking Holland. He is so adorable in this film and he is closer to the age then Garfield and Magurie were. If I’m being honest I’m very attractive to Tom Holland, have you seen his Instagram? He is really hot. I loved him in this movie and when Spiderman: Homecoming was happening, I got really, really excited.

Then the first trailer dropped and I’d loved it.

I loved it! I had never seen anything so great and I could only think that is it! We are finally getting the perfect Spiderman movie! It is going to be amazing and perfect! I’m so looking forward to it. It has a great cast, a hot lead, a good storyline, a cute lead, Zendaya is in it and for awhile everyone thought she was playing Mary Jane but she is playing some girl named Michelle *or maybe she is playing Mary Jane I don’t!, Aunt May is really young for some reason, and it looks so good! I was excited for this movie, I put it on Things I’m looking forward in 2017 list because if you haven’t guessed I was pretty damn excited.

But then the second dropped the other day.

It made me excited because we got all new scenes, more Tony Stark, some Iron Man, more Tom Holland, we got to see an interesting Spiderman suit with new stuff added to it, more Peter Parker, and we finally see the new villains. Yeah that’s right villains, plural. You know part of the reason Spider-man 3 and The Amazing Spiderman 2 failed were because they had too many villains. Spiderman 3 had the sand guy and Topher Grace and maybe someone else like I said I have made it through this film. Then The Amazing Spiderman 2 had the electricity guy and Harry Osborn somehow got in there and decide to be the green goblin *i forgot to tag spoilers. spoilers. 

I’m not saying it’s only Spiderman movies because there have been movies a lot villains and it’s never worked really and now I’m worried for this movie. That makes me nerve because this film is something that I have been very much looking forward to.

We have been given three villains who are:

Michael Keaton as The Vulture

c1253c607c195c2257cccab7594c55e204010a8c.jpg

Michael Chernus as The Tinkerer

michael-chernus-is-the-tinkerer-images-marvel-comics-netflix.jpg

The Shocker

we-now-know-he-ll-be-appearing-image-marvel-comics

I don’t know how I feel about this film now because I was looking forward to it but now everything is changing. I’m a little glad this happened though because my expectations would have been to high and have now they are almost at a realistic level now which is good or else I would have been really mad. I’m still excited for this film, I think it has a great cast and it could still be good. I’m not as excited as I once was.

I’m curious about a lot of things though because there have been rumors about Pepper Potts making a small appearance but I guess the same was said about Civil War but that ended up not happening. There was also that thing about Zendaya playing Mary Jane that went around which I thought would have been awesome but according to everywhere on the internet with information and Zendaya, she is playing some girl named Michelle. I also want to know if we are going to see Peter’s whole backstory, I mean I know we all know it and in Civil War they had Peter six months after he had gotten his powers but every spiderman movie has the origin story.

And another thing if you go on IMBD, you’ll find that a lot of people’s characters haven’t been named and that’s gotten me thinking. Like Donald Glover is in the film and my first thought was Miles Morales and Spiderverse but I’m trying not to think that because that feels like a giant long shot *i mean how cool would that be though, right?

I’m going to see this film, it’s in July and my friend and I are already making plans to go and see which is great because she is a big spiderman fan like me. We talked about this movie so many times this week it’s crazy. Most of the conversations I’ve had with my friends since week have been marvel related. I have a problem.

It’s all I want and all I need *i’m singing this in my head. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is getting so good and I’m worried that it is ending after Infinity Wars which I don’t want! Like what else am I going to do? Get involved in the new DC movies? Why would I do that? Also Spiderman is going to be in Infinity War which is cool!!!!!

It’s also been going around that there is going to Infinity War and the second spiderman movie but then that’s it for Tom Holland as Peter? Like are they going to others or is that it? If that is it then how dare marvel make me fall in love with new characters and new actors and then take them away!!

What do you guys think about this film? Are you excited to see it? Are you worried about the multiple villains?

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

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

Do I really need to explain this one?

The Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin

An less annoying then the first one | City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare review

Greetings everyone! Today I’m posting my review of City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare, the second book in the Mortal Instruments series!

1582996.jpg

Rating: +B: Had a weird pace and took me a while to like the characters.

Desire is not always lessened by disgust. Nor can it be bestowed, like a favor, to those most deserving of it. And as my words bind my magic, so you can know the truth. If she doesn’t desire his kiss, she won’t be free.”

I did a review for the first book and you can read that here. I’m doing reviews of all the books in this series and Infernal Devices along with a Shadowhunter before the second season comes out and Lord of Shadows is released. In this book, Clary and Jace tried to deal with the fact that they are sibling that are attracted to each other and that their dad is a crazy shadowhunter who wants to raise demons and stuff like that. Clary  tries dating Simon and Alec is trying to hide the fact that he isn’t having hot gay sex with Magnus Bane, the high warlock for Brooklyn aka the best character ever.

I thought that the first book was hard to get into and this book was much better then the first book but it’s not my favorite. This book still took awhile to get into but it was easier then the first book. I kind of hated Jace in this book because he decide to be a giant dick to everyone which I get because everyone thinks that he is Valentine’s son and that gets in prison and he loves his sister and she goes off and gets another boyfriend. Which I guess is something that is hard to go through. I mean it’s not something that happens to normal people in everyday life.

Most of this book is just everyone trying to work out their feelings. In this corner we have Clary and Jace we found out that their are siblings and it’s weird because in the last book, they had this really hot kiss scene. Clary decides to try and date Simon who has been in love with Clary since like forever. Jace tries dealing with his feelings in a different away as I same before, he becomes a dick to everyone. He gets into a fight in the beginning at a werewolf club and thank goodness for Luke being there because he would have die. They sort of deal with it but they still think that they are siblings so it is still not totally good with them.

Something inside Clary cracked and broke, and words came pouring out. ‘What do you want me to tell you? The truth? The truth is that I love Simon like I should love you, and I wish he was my brother and you weren’t, but I can’t do anything about that and neither can you!”

In the other corner, we have Alec who is trying really hard to fight his feeling for ‘Jace’ even though we know that he means ‘Magnus’ and he always has to deal with family finding out that he is gay. We get a really funny scene where Alec has a hickey on his neck and Jace sees it and Alec tries to hide it and he does a horrible job. There is also a really cute scene where Magnus loses his strength and Alec is just like take me strength and my heart just can’t take it! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!

“We’re not dating,” Alec said again.
“Oh?” Magnus said. “So you’re just that friendly with everybody, is that it?”

In the other other corner, we have Simon who is with the girl that he has always liked but then we mets a new girl who is a werewolf and then after a events happen where Simon becomes a vampire and Valentine  kidnapped him, Maya, and Clary and he kills Simon. He kills my CHILD! But something good happens, and Simon lives and can walk outside in the sunlight unlike most vampires. He and Clary break up because she’s in love with her brother and he likes Maya.

This book definitely beats the first book but it still isn’t the best. It really picks up in the next book and I can’t wait to review it. After I review City of Glass I will then do Clockwork Angel which I’m so excited to do. Have you you guys read this book? Did you like it? I hope you enjoyed this review and are following my book club here and other social media links. I posted rants like this once a week every week. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!

I forgot how annoying the first book was | City of Bones by Cassandra Clare review

Greetings everyone! Today I’m posting my review of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, the first book in the Mortal Instruments series!

WARNING SPOILERS

256683-315x475

Rating:-B: Could has better and was too slow and only got good at the end

The boy never cried again, and he never forgot what he’d learned: that to love is to destroy, and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed.”

So I decide to re read the Mortal Instruments because it’s a really great series and I love it! I also wanted to have reviews for all the books and I read the books in the correct order with the Infernal Devices because I didn’t do that the first. I’ll be reviewing stuff for the Shadowhunter Chronicles up until the releases of Shadowhunters Season two and Lord of Shadows.

This book follows Clary Fray who one night goes out to club and watches a man get killed by three people and she was the only one who saw. She is thrown into this whole different world with demons and demon hunters called Shadowhunters and it’s crazy! I read this book like a year ago *yes i was late to the fandom leave me alone! and I didn’t really like it. I mean I knew that it was one of those books where you have to push through it to get to the good stuff but man this story is soooo slow and full of cliches. It was hard to re read this book because I was so bored. The first time I read this book it took me like two weeks to read this book and it took me like a week to re read and the whole time I was just thinking man I can’t wait for this series to finally pick up!

This book starts a lot of things that didn’t really carry on. I get that it’s an introduction book but my god so things were started but they completely change in the next book. I guess that’s a good thing because I didn’t like any of the things in this book. I thought the whole Clary, Simon, and Jace love triangle was stupid. I didn’t really like most of the characters in this as much as I do in the other ones.

Alec was a douchebag in this book because he was in love with Jace and Izzy was okay in this book. But Jace’s sass level was like off the charts and I loved it.

Is this the part where you start tearing off strips of your shirt to bind my wounds?”
“If you wanted me to rip my clothes off, you should have just asked.”

I still loved Simon though. I will always love Simon. When Alec and Magnus met I was just fangirling so hard because Malec is my OTP and they are so cute! Alec was just talking about how he didn’t like Warlock and I was just thinking oh you grow to love them so much.

One the things I disliked about this book when I first read and that I still don’t like now is that it has a lot of cliches. It got a girl who is young and has a mother that doesn’t really let her do a lot. She has this friend that has feels for her but she doesn’t feel the same way. One night she goes out and see something that changes her life forever. She mets a dark and mysterious handsome boy and his friends who are apart of the strange world. Suddenly once she enters that new world stuff starts happening and it’s all around her and she somehow is different from everyone else.

Basically very fantasy cliches in the book.

It still is good if you can get over all the cliches and rule number one for this book is that you have to push through it to get to all the good stuff like character development and much better and cuter ships. There is something that is little different and that was the fact Hodge the Shadowhunter gangs favorite teacher was the one of the people helping Valentine who is Clary’s dad and she isn’t happy that your mother lied to her again about her life. Valentine then tells her that Jace the guy that she has very strong feeling and made out with is her brother. What a star wars plot twist!

I think Clary and Jace are a cute couple and when this was announced, I didn’t believe at all. I know couples in fiction go through stuff but this wasn’t likely. These two had too much chemistry for them not to end up together.

Valentine is an okay villain. I didn’t like but I wasn’t always scared about what he would do because he wasn’t that intense of a villain. He is crazy and he is a cult leader but other then that I didn’t love him as a villain.

This book isn’t the best in the series but it is a good introduction for the Shadowhunter world. I think that everyone needs to give this book a shot and find love in this series because I think it is one of my favorites of all time. Have you guys read the Mortal Instruments? If you have what did you think? I hope you enjoy this review and I post once a week every week. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these! Also make sure to follow my social media links.
