Marvel Avengers Book Tag!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing the Marvel Avengers Book Tag!

Avengers-panel1a-137434.jpg

I didn’t create this tag and I don’t know who did but I love Marvel and Superheroes and books so I wanted to do this.


Iron Man

2cbb04e7ef9266e1e57a9b0e75bc555f.jpg

Your Favorite First Book

I love Iron Man but I watched the movies in the wrong order. My parents showed the first movie to my sisters and then they showed all three of us the second one and then we all went in saw the third one and I’d saw all the other Avengers movies. I finally watched it pretty recently and I did like it. First books in series aren’t always going to be the first because they are opening up the universe and the new world we are about to explore so they take time but their are some good ones. I’m going to pick Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare.

546b72c81f28be9e4a4565b890ccc4b2

This book is just great!! I loved this book so much more than City of Bones and Clockwork Angel. I have a review on how I feel about it here. Lord of Shadow is about to come out as I’m writing and it’s probably already out when this post comes into the world! I’m so excited!! Another good first book is Alice in Zombieland. Damn that was the best one in the series.


Captain America

tumblr_n0oxpj88rS1raoayro1_1280.jpg

A Book that takes place in a different time

Captain America is my favorite. I love him so much! Chris Evans is just so gorgeous and I love him as the role of Steve Rogers. I don’t read a lot of books that take place in a different time period. I don’t know why, I don’t know why I just don’t find a lot of them or know of any of them so it’s not something that I read a lot of right next to science fiction. I have read Outlander, the Infernal Devices, and technically Harry Potter takes place in a different time. I think I’m going to pick Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson.

51zqk1y72TL

This book if you couldn’t guess is about the yellow fever and it follows a girl named Mattie and her life during the time of this and how she deals with it. It’s a really great book and I love it and I love Laurie Halse Anderson, her books are like damn! I would recommend this book to everyone because it’s so good.


Thor

avengers_2_affiche_08-640x933.jpg

A book character that you like more after they were casted

I love Thor and I love Chris Hemsworth. I didn’t really want to see this movie at first but then my family was like it’s so good and I’ve come to adore Thor and all the characters and Loki and these movies! Whose excited about Thor: Ragnarok? I AM!!! It took me awhile for me to decide what to pick for this question but I finally realized that my answer is Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy.

Draco Malfoy is terrible character well the choices he makes are terrible. He is a good boy that was forced into a life that he didn’t want. Now if I had read the books first then he would have just thought he was a spoiled brat but watching Tom Felton bring this character to the screen helped me understand what he was going through this and he made me love him more.


Hawkeye

hawkeye.jpg

A book that you love but isn’t really a popular read for others

I love Hawkeye. I was so scared that he was going to die in Age of Ultron because they introduce as to his family and when his wife was like be safe and I was shit he is going to die but he didn’t! I’m going to pick to Sherlock inspire stories that I love and I couldn’t decide which one I should do so I’m going Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty and the Clockwork Scarab by Colleen Gleason!

They are so amazing and so wonderful and I love them so much. I have review for both Lock and Mori books here and here and I have reviews for Stoker and Holmes here and here. If you haven’t read these books yet then go read them because they are so amazing and wonderful and I need the final books right now because I need to know what happens!!


Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch

A Book with a Sibling Duo

Okay so is Quicksilver coming back for Infinity Wars because I kept seeing stuff saying that he still is alive and is returning? Can someone just clear this up for me? Thanks. I don’t know who else there is to pick besides Fred and George from Harry Potter.

fred and george.jpg

I love them so much and they are just so amazing and the death in Deathly Hallows breaks my heart and AHHHHHHHHH!


Loki

Loki_textless.jpg

A villain that you love and you can’t help but be attracted to

I love Loki. I love him so much. I’m so excited Thor 3 because I know what the title means and the trailers look great. I’m having a hard time picking this one because I can’t be a attracted to a lot of villains because they do such horrible things. I’m gonna go with Hideo from Warcross by Marie Lu.

warcross

I don’t know if he counts as villain but his motivation at the end of Warcross can be called villainy. I don’t know. I don’t feel attracted to any book villains right now. Because like I said before so many villains do terrible things and I stop loving them after that. Like Tate from American Horror Story, everyone loves him but he’s done such terrible things that I don’t like him.


Antman

Ant-Man_Poster_Cropped.png

A Book I’ve been meaning to read

Like every book in the world I feel like. I do have answer for this and it’s pretty shameful and the books I’ve been meaning to read are Six of Crows and Shadows and Bone! I’m sorry! I’ve been meaning to read them and every time I get them I just start reading them and then I give up on them. I plan on reading them soon but I’ve been saying that for awhile now.


The Hulk

avengers___age_of_ultron___hulk_poster_by_zedkate-d7c79b4.jpg

A Book you can’t talk about without getting angry

*COUGHS LOUDLY

983940_orig

DISHONORABLE MENTION: 13 REASONS WHY! I hate these books so much and I get so mad every time I talk about them. Same for 13 Reasons Why.


Black Widow

black widow.jpg

A Side Character that You wished had their own Book

I mean I wish I got a whole series about Harry Potter’s parent when they were at Hogwarts but everyone wants that so. How about Dorian? Because Chaol got a whole book about him so why I get he get one? I love Dorian he’s my favorite! I guess so many people wouldn’t like that because I feel like everyone loves Chaol and I don’t really like him that much.

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.


636274955462993937-2016165915_thirteen-reasons-why.jpg

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. Have you guys read this book? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way.

YOU HAVE TO WATCH MIRACULOUS: TALES OF LADYBUG AND CAT NOIR!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about my new obsession Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir! *or miraculous or miraculous ladybug depending on where you live

ladybug

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

If you are on the internet or Tumblr a lot, then chances are you have heard of this show. That’s how I heard about it. I was just scrolling through Tumblr and I saw gifs of it and I found out what it called and I thought this looks cute. I went to ALA this week and my sister had started watching this show but I didn’t know what the show was called until we were in the car on my way home when I figured out what she was watching. At first I thought it was really cheesy but then I spent the rest of the car ride looking over the sit trying to watch it.

This show is a French animated show that follows the two main heroes Marinette Dupain-Cheng aka Ladybug and Adrien Agreste aka Cat Noir. These two have the powers of the miraculous giving them the ability to transform and get cool powers. The show follows them fighting and protecting Paris along with their Kwamis, Tikki and Plagg, and their main enemy is Hawk Moth really wants their miraculous because Marinette and Adrien have the most powerful miraculous and they are very powerful when used together *I really hope I’m not giving anything away. Hawk Moth puts akumas on people who are sad or angry turning them into villains as a chance for Hawk Moth to get their miraculous because he can’t leave his cage.

Every episode is basically the same thing expect with a different villain changing things up a bit for each episode. Like most kids shows. This show is cheesy as hell and is filled with bad puns but despite all that I love it with all my fucking heart and I’m really obsessed with it and as I’m writing this I’m watching the show for the second time but in a different order. I don’t know what it is about this show that makes me love it so much. Through is only one thing that bothers me and I’m not going to talk about it right now because I’m scared of giving spoilers but if you watch the show then you know what  I’m talking about because I’m not the only one bothered by this which is why it has an -A and not an +A.

I love the characters, I love the cheesy lines, I love the story lines, I love this show in general. If you haven’t watched this show then you need to go watch it right. The whole first season is on Netflix a long with the Christmas special. They are like 21 minutes long and there are 25 of them. Go watch them! Do it! That’s it for my non spoilery part of this review so if you haven’t watched this show then you have to leave because I’m not holding anything because this show fucked me up real good.

WARNING SPOILERS

IF YOU WANT TO WATCH THE SHOW THEN LEAVE

DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU

OKAY SO THIS SHOW IS AMAZING and it ruined me. And it’s only a kid show. If you look at the age group of the show on Netflix then you’ll see that it is for 9 – 12 and I’m none of those ages but I’m not the only one so that’s good. I’m on my third time watching on the show. The first time I watched it in the order Netflix has it but then I went on Wiki and the episode aired in different order so I watched the episode in that order which makes more sense. I recommend watching it that way. Now I’m watching them in a completely random order.

We are just gonna have to jump right in from the beginning because I have no clue where to start *by that I mean the origins episode which is my favorite. We are told that there are these things called the Miraculous which can give anyone powers but they have to be given to the right person or else bad shit happens which is how we get our villain for this story. Hawk Moth *or Adrian’s dad if you are like me and you believe that finds the Moth Brooch and uses it for evil. Master Fu has the all the other miraculous he is like we have to get other heroes out there. Like I said before the show follows Marinette is a sweet girl who is clumsy and wants to be a fashion designer and then we have Adrian who is a cinnamon roll and needs to be protected at all time. Master Fu decides to give Marinette the ladybug earrings and Adrian the cat ring and they become superheroes ad it’s amazing.

No one knows that Marinette is Ladybug or that Adrian is Cat Noir and it’s frustrating as hell! Because Marinette is in love with Adrian who she hated at first because she saw him trying to remove gum from her sit and she thought he was putting it on her first so she was like I hate you but he explained everything and she forgive him and fell in love with him but she has no one clue that he is Cat Noir who is head over heels for Ladybug who is Marinette but he doesn’t know that!! To round it up for you, Marinette loves Adrian who loves Ladybug but doesn’t know it’s Marinette who doesn’t like Cat Noir who is in love with Ladybug and flirts with Marinette. We have a love square with only two people. I didn’t like even think that was possible! I still ship them though and I was so excited when this moment happened.

Ladynoir_kiss.gif

I CAN I GET A YES!!!!!! Unfortunately she only did this to get him out of the spell he was under and I don’t think he remembers it. But still it happened and I’m love this moment so much! You have to wonder though she only had to give him a small peck and it had to be true love so just think about that *because she loves him too. I’ve been told according to spoilers on twitter that more kisses are coming on seasons two but I don’t know what to believe. The said that they are between Adrien and Marinette but are they just calling them that because those are their real names or because they kiss and not Ladybug and Cat Noir. I’m still excited though!

One of the things that bother me was how they wouldn’t recognized each other and it’s just not them, it’s everyone. No one can piece together that Marinette and Adrian are Ladybug and Cat Noir. Their disguises aren’t that great. It’s just their masks and their outfits, I mean Cat Noir’s hair changes a bit and his eyes are a little different but still. Nothing changes with Marinette like her hair is the same you know blue hair tied in pig tails. It’s like Oliver on the first season of Arrow where he just wears the hoodie and green paint on his eyes and somehow no one sees his face. At least Oliver changes his voice in the first season. I watched a theory on why people couldn’t recognize them and it made sense. The theory was that when they are transform magic is used on them so that people can only recognize as their hero forms. It makes sense because when Chloe dresses up as Ladybug people thought she was Ladybug despite the fact that she has blonde hair and wears it in a ponytail. But Alya thought that Adrien could be Cat Noir with a costume on so that kind of disproves that theory. I don’t know! Okay I DONT’ KNOW! I hoping that this is explained when season two comes along *if it ever does……

Let’s talk about some of the characters on this show. We have a lot of characters on this show, mainly so that every episode we can get a new villain but let’s start with the main two Adrien and Marinette. Marinette is Ladybug and she is so strong and she is confident and smart and strong mind when she is Ladybug but when she is Marinette she is really clumsy and spends most of her time obsessing over Adrien. I love her because she is really relatable. She’s like a female Peter Parker and I really like that about her. She also wants to be a fashion designer and like stands up for herself against the bitch that is Chloe and I’m like you go girl! So she is the reason that Cat Noir and Ladybug don’t know who they are. In episode seven, they are about to transform back into their real identities and Cat is like I won’t tell anyone but then she’s like none can know who we really are not even us. And I’m like why do you have to be like that and then I realize that I think she is scared of what people are going to say when they find out that she is Ladybug.

There is a big difference between how she acts when she is Ladybug and when is she Marinette like I said before. One of the things about Marinette is like that she really lacks in self-confidence. The began * and i mean origins people she wonders if she can even be Ladybug and even gives up at one point because she messed up once and thinks that she can’t do it right. So I’m thinking and I’m going off a post I saw on Pinterest, that she isn’t scared of people knowing her identity, she scared of people knowing who she is and then them be disappointed. I’m like really scared for that reveal scene which is said to be coming soon. I’m like afraid it’s going to go badly.  Let’s talk about Adrien who is too good for this world. He has the backstory of a villain or a really angsty superhero but instead of being either of those things, he is this sweet boy who just goes around saving the world and saying puns. I love him.

We have Alya who is Marinette’s best friend and then we have Nino who is Adrien’s best friend and they are sassy best friends well Alya is for Marinette. Alya loves superheroes and is a blogger and who basically do anything to get a lead on the story. Like in the origins episode the news is on and you see the villain and Alya is just following behind on her bike and I’m like girl you’re crazy. I enjoy these characters they mean well and want to be there for their friends. They are good characters and I like them better then our other background characters. We have Chloe who is a bitch and I hate her and we have Sabrina who is the girl Chloe pushes around. I don’t like her but it seems like she is getting the bee miraculous next season and I think Alya is becoming the fox miraculous. I’m even with Alya getting the fox miraculous but not Chloe. I hate Chloe, I find her really  annoying. I don’t know how she is going to get the miraculous though because don’t you have to be a good person? What if she think saves someone be mistake and Master Fu is like I’m going to pick her and that’s how she gets it because that would be really funny. I would enjoy that a lot.

Let’s talk about the character I hope to never see again which was Lila. We met her in the season final and she is telling everyone lies and she tells people that she has met Ladybug and she flirts with Adrien and Marinette hates her. She finds this book about miraculous *she didn’t find it she stole from Adrien and she is like I’ll pretend I’m the fox miraculous to get with Adrien. Ladybug is like you lying bitch that’s not true *I’m paraphrasing again and she gets embarrassed into front of Adrien so then she gets akumized and is like I kidnapped Adrien and Ladybug believes it but Cat Noir is like it’s not true but Ladybug doesn’t believe him and I’m like this could be a good time to tell her man but he doesn’t!  I’ve also seen fanart that shows Lila and Marinette becoming friends and I’m no.

I don’t want her around.

 I WANT HER GONE!

SHE’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THIS SHOW!

This show is amazing and it’s so much fun to watch. Like I’ve watch it so many times already. I love it. You guys should totally watch it. If you have then what did you think of it?

My heart! It hurts! | City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing City of Heavenly Fire, the sixth book in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare!

WARNING SPOILERS

Cassandra_Clare_City_of_Heavenly_Fire_book_cover

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

Heroes aren’t always the ones who win,” she said. “They’re the ones who lose, sometimes. But they keep fighting, they keep coming back. They don’t give up. That’s what makes them heroes.” 

This is sixth book in the Mortal Instruments series which if you didn’t know I’m re reading the series for the release of Lord Of Shadows which comes out in three days turns out I got the date wrong so these are going to be late. I have already review City of BonesCity of AshesCity of GlassCity of Fallen Angels, City of Lost SoulsLady MidnightThe Infernal Devices, and the first season of Shadowhunters which you should check out.   After this review I’m done with Mortal Instruments reviews, I mean I will stay review Shadowhunter Academy but after I do other things because I have so much to write about if you didn’t read the crazy beginning to my City of Fallen Angels review.

Okay City of Lost Souls was rough and left me crying but this book, this emotional roller coster of a final book nearly destroyed me! Like it’s too much! It felt like there Cassandra Clare was just beating me with this book. The book starts off with us meeting a new character Emma Carstairs who is our female lead for the Dark Artifices and this is her the day her parents died. We get a chance to know her and everyone else that becomes apart of the Dark Artifices series which is something that I loved and I talked about that a little in my Lady Midnight review.

I love the fact that we had a chance to met these characters when they were younger and experience what happened before the Lady Midnight. I just felt like I had a better connection with them because I already knew them and I didn’t really get that with the characters in this series or the other series. The characters reappear through out the book about it’s mostly Emma and Julian and I also loved the young Emma and Julien moments. Like the sword is used on all the Blackthorns and Emma is trying to stand up for them and she’s like ‘no I saw Sebastian and I stabbed too so just leave them alone’ and I’m like ‘YOU GO GIRL!’.

There is also this moment and I loved it.

We could—” he started, then stopped, swallowed, and started again. “We could become parabatai.” 
He said it shyly, half-turning his face away from her, so that the shadows partially hid his expression. 
“Then they couldn’t separate us,” he added. “Not ever.” 
Emma felt her heart turn over. “Jules, being parabatai is a big deal,” she said. “It’s—it’s forever.” 
He looked at her, his face open and guileless. There was no trickery in Jules, no darkness. “Aren’t we forever?” he asked.”

*emma and julian forever! i don’t know how I’m going to get through lord of shadows! because lady midnight was just too fucking much okay!

We have our little shadowhunter gang trying to fight back against Sebastian. Simon and Izzy are dating sort and Clary and Jace are definitely dating but they get do much because Jace has the heavenly fire in him so if they want to get busy then is there a chance he could set Clary on fire *which you know isn’t good. Alec is still upset about the fact that he and Magnus are broken up but let me tell you that doesn’t stop Alec from dropping sass like there is no tomorrow and there are still some steamy and sweet moments between the two. Sebastian is still creep as fuck! Like he is just going through this book killing people and doing terrible things and still being a creepy motherfucker and all I’ve done through out these last two books but in this book near the end Sebastian kicks the bucket.

And it’s heartbreaking!

It wasn’t fair! All I have done through out these books is hate him but then after Clary tricks him into thinking that she is on his side and then she’s stabs him and all the demon blood like leaves him and he becomes Jonathan which was who he was before he was like Sebastian and he is like saying he’s sorry to everyone and I’m like HOW DO YOU MAKE ME CARE ABOUT HIM RIGHT AS HE’S DYING???? WHO DOES THAT? More emotional moments come when like our group is in a demon realm and there is like a demon who shows you what it thinks you want and it literally shows everyone what it thinks they want and I’m screaming and dying fuck it was emotional hell.

Also after Sebastian’s death and they save Magnus, they run into Magnus’ dad *they don’t really run into him they summon and Magnus says that he is going to give up his immortality which will kill me because he’s 400 years old to save the world and Alec is like no don’t do this and I’m sobbing. Then Simon is just like no let me do it and then I’m died because Simon is my child and I’ll protect him with my life!!!

tumblr_npmrpkysi11u1xbygo1_400

So his memories are taken away and he doesn’t remember anything over the last six books.  But then the epilogue comes and everything is beautifully wrapped up and my kids are happy and Simon sort of remembers somethings. It’s just so beautiful!

This book was the best thing ever. I’ve read like five times and each time still leaves me crying!!! Have you guys read this book? What did you think of it? Did you like or did you hate it? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way. You should follow my book club here and other social media links.

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?

The Candy Book Tag!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing the Candy Book Tag! I saw meltingpotsandothercalamities *it’s a really cool blog check it out do this and I thought that it was pretty funny and interesting and I decide to do it. Let’s began!


Apples

Red_Apple.jpg

Ah. Healthy food. It is deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.

Basically any classics. Look I get that classic books were the ones that started the book lovers and a lot of people love them but I can never get into them. I’ve read a lot of classics that people love like 1984, Dracula, and even the Once and Future King and I can’t get into them at all. I get that they are all probably great to some people but I just don’t see how.


Milk Chocolate

This is a book you’d recommend to absolutely EVERYONE.

What don’t a recommend? I recommend books that I think are worth people’s time. A book or a series that I have been recommending a lot lately is the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan.

1add83dc05d393866abc11c4d3512981

I just started rereading this books and every Percy and Annabeth scene I’m just like screaming inside because they are so young and in love! These books are just the funniest and greatest things I’ve ever read! If you haven’t read these books then I highly recommend them. Don’t watch those movies though. Just don’t!


Black Jellybeans

black-jelly-beans.jpg

Why do these exist??

First off, I didn’t even know that these were even a thing. What the hell? What flavor even is that? Well I have some books that I like shouldn’t exist *cough fifty shades cough* but I’m going with The Girl Online books by Zoe Sugg.

 

I have reviews for Girl Online and Girl Online: On Tour and I have talked about how I feel about them a lot and I don’t love these books. They are just the worst and she keeps writing them or maybe someone else is writing them and she is just taking the credit for them because it was announced that the first book was ghost written but nothing has been said about the other two. These books have characters who never get good development and whatever they get development somewhere in the book it’s just forgot and they return to the way they were. I wish these books just went away. I haven’t read the last one and I’m not looking forward to it.


Chocolate Kisses

Awww this novel had the best romance.

I really hate questions like these because I can’t ever decide. I have too many ships and too many loves to decide but for the first time I’m actually going to pick a couple. This is a couple that has known each other since they were twelve years old and have saved the world so many times. They are so perfect for each other and they have a very heathy relationship. If you haven’t guessed yet it’s Percy and Annabeth from the Percy Jackson series.

3e94bb7780a8670792febf757bec714f.png

Like I said I’m rereading these books and I’m just remind about how cute and perfect their relationship is. I know that they are a lot of other couples that have great romances in books and I very each love those books. But these guys are perfect!


Gummy Spiders

gummy-spiders-2-2lb-sold-out-3.jpg

Eek! You made sure to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.

I don’t watch scary things or read them because I know how I’m going to end for me so yeah I don’t have answer for this one.


Jumbo Lollipop

This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it!

This is easy. A book that took me forever was The Wheel of Time Companion.

51zRGrAxrZL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

This books took me a whole month to finish and I loved it. It was so worth it!


Cotton Candy

Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do). Think children’s or MG fiction.

Again another easy one. A series I loved when I was kid and still do is the 39 Clues series by a lot of authors.

kr_kidsread_042011_39clues_header

I have a post talking about this series which you can read here. This series was so much fun to read as a kid and every once and while I go back and read one of the books and it’s like nostalgia! I just always have a great time reading these books.


That was fun! Thank guys for reading tag! It was much fun. I’m spring break right now and I’m hoping to get a lot done. I’m tagging you guys to do this if you guys want to do. I post review, rants, and other stuff one this blog once every weeks. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these! Also make sure to follow my social media links.

Romantic and Relatable as hell | A Totally Awkward Love Story by Lucy Ivison and Tom Ellen review

Greetings everyone! Welcome to my first book review of 2017! Today I’m reviewing A Totally Awkward Love Story by Lucy Ivison and Tom Ellen!

WARNING SPOILERS

23341743

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

This wasn’t the first book that I picked up and read this year but it was one that I felt so strongly about that I had to review it. Also this book is also called Lobsters by the way and I didn’t figure that out until I went on Facebook and it was just like ‘you are currently reading Lobsters’ and I was just like what the hell. This book follows Hannah who is trying to find the one before she leaves for college and then her and Sam met which is followed by a lot of awkward events. They are both trying to loss their virginities which just adds on to the awkwardness.

Honestly I don’t really know what made me want to get this book but I remember seeing this book at the store and just being like I have to have it. Maybe it’s because it’s called A Totally Awkward Love Story and I thought that the title was just so funny or the cover just being so cute. I don’t read a lot of romance because they are just the same story over and over again. Girl and guy meet, one as a dramatic past that makes the character has issues and the other is just a major cinnamon roll, cinnamon roll characters decides that their lives now revolve around the other even though the dramatic character has hurt them  because they thought it was the ‘right thing’ or some other bullshit reason but in the end they still get together.

It’s the same goddamn story every time!

But this story was different in some ways. The characters are relatable and so is the storyline like I could totally see people going through because it’s really awkward like the kind of awkward that you can relate to in way that you wish you didn’t know how they felt. The characters feel really real which is always great in romance novels. I love the relationship between Sam and Hannah it wasn’t the best but to be honest they were really cute. They just seemed to get each other and I hated moments when they weren’t together  it’s like hey you two are meant for each other just be together!

Hannah and Sam are such fun characters with crazy unique storylines that are really awkward at the same time. Both storylines are about the fact that they really are the best for each other but they kept getting separated and being with the wrong people and dealing with their friends. Like seriously they kept getting with the wrong people. Sam gets with this girl at one point and man that was so awkward. I read that scene in class and I was just cringing. Oh man that was just wow…. that was just so awkward.

This book can get really be graphic during some scene with hand jobs and sex. Also there is a lot of sex talk during this book. Which is expected mainly because its about two people trying to lose their virginities but in most young adult books don’t go as graphic is this book. It could be really cringey at sometimes.

As much I as I did love this book, I did have some issues with this book one of them being cheating. I have a lot of ships and most writers love to give those ships issues and an issue they usually throw out the characters is making them have a fight and cheat on each other. I don’t like cheating and I hate when it is throw into a story with characters that I really like and enjoy. Sam and Hannah’s relationship isn’t perfect in this story which I guess is realistic but after Sam gets the wrong impression with Hannah and other guy named Paz and he doesn’t make the right decision when he needs to handle it and Sam goes and cheats on Hannah with a girl he doesn’t even know that well.

I was so mad when that happened I was just like you little shit how could you ruin this! Hannah thought that they were like Lobsters and where meant to be together and then she goes outside and sees Sam the guy she has spent the whole fucking book waiting for making out some other girl. It just makes me so mad! Also two of Hannah’s friends cheat on their boyfriends so there was a fair about of cheating.

Another issue I had was Hannah’s relationship with her friend Stella. Stella is one of those girls who think that they are all that, put themselves first, and sometimes don’t really care about all of their friends and sometimes they do. I have always been in the Hannah in friendships like that where I feel like I can never be honest with them because it could ruin the friendship. I just hated reading about their friendship because it made me so mad. Hannah kept letting Stella walk over her and I get that but it made me mad because it felt like I was reliving those awful friendships. When Hannah finally told off Stella I was just like hells yeah you go girl!

This book beside it’s issues was a lot of fun to read. It had great characters who got great development and went through so things that were really awkward and really relatable. I had some much fun reading this book. Have you guys read this book? If you have what did you think? I hope you guys enjoy this review and are following my book club here and other social media links. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!
