Top 10 Favorite Shows! | 2017 Spring Edition

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

#10 The Vampire Diaries


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

#9 Reign


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

#8 Supernatural


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

#7 Luke Cage


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

#6 Brooklyn Nine-Nine


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

#5 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt


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

#4 Gilmore Girls


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

#3 The Mindy Project


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

#2 BBC Class


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

#1 Parenthood


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

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

Now I know you are probably thinking ‘Gigi we are already three months into 2017 why are you making this now?’ Well I was going to make this list earlier but I decide not to do it for some reason I can’t remember at moment. But a lot of stuff is coming soon and I’m really excited and I need to talk about it! This are in no order at all it is just a list!

Let’s began!

Beauty and the Beast

March 17, 2017


This is the live action version of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast staring Emma freaking Watson and Dan freaking Stevens and a lot of other great actors! I know this movie is already out but I haven’t seen yet and it’s driving me crazy! I love Beauty and the Beast the original *i have a review here and I have looking forward for this movie for years *i have a post talking about it hereEveryone in the world has seen this expect me and I’m really sad about that because I’ve only heard amazing things! I mean they have all the original songs from the original and they add a couple more like Evermore! I haven’t listened to it yet because I’m trying to wait for the film but I’ve that it’s heart breaking and DAN STEVENS SING!!!

Pentatonix Vol. IV: Classics

April 7, 2017


Yes the beautiful angels are coming out with another album except they are doing covers again but old school covers. They have already released one of their new songs which is called Imagines and it’s beautiful and heartbreaking and everyone needs to listen to it! They have also released Jolene with Dolly Parton and that won them their third grammy! That is also a really amazing song and even though Jolene is country it’s so good and everyone should listen to it either way. I really love Pentatonix and I’m excited to here their covers of these songs.

Orphan Black: The Final Season

June 10, 2017


It’s the final season and I’m excited but I’m heartbroken because I don’t want it to end. This show is so amazing and great! There are four seasons out right now, I think you can watch them on Amazon Prime but that may not be right. You all should just binge watch this show before it ends because it is just so amazing. Tatiana Maslany is such an amazing actress and you know that she is an amazing actress because she plays half the characters on this show and she is great! She finally won an emmy you know some time ago and I was so happy for her!

Spider-Man: Homecoming

July 7, 2017


Who else is excited for all the upcoming marvel films because I’m so excited like you don’t even know! I’ve recently gotten into Marvel comics *I mean I’ve always lived the movies but now I have the comics and I freaking love them. Like it’s made the whole marvel universe seem a lot bigger and a lot more overwhelming to me. There are just so many characters and universe and there is just so little time! So I have now fallen head over heels in love with the all the spider-men and spider-women and Tom Holland so I’m so excited for this film! And yesterday my excitement grew because I was on Donald Glovers IMBD because I love him and I wanted find stuff on the new Lion King and then I see that it’s says that he is going to be in this movie *screams of joy!!!!!! I’m just sitting there thinking what if he gets to be Miles Morales because he has already voiced him and by doing this we could bring the whole spider verse together and IT COULD BE GLORIOUS!!

Also could someone tell me who Zendaya is playing in this movie because I thought she was Mary Jane and they announced that she was going to be Mary Jane but now everyone is like she is some chick named Michelle and I’m just confused.

A Court of Wings and Ruins by Sarah J. Maas

May 2, 2017


I need to just review this because some much stuff happens in them and it just drives crazy and leaves me in a emotional reaction. If you have read these books and then you just have to go and read them because these books are just so good! Like any other Sarah J. Maas book. Warning these books have very sexual themes so if you aren’t comfortable with that then don’t read them. I’m so curious to see how this finale book in the series plays out with Feyre and Rhysand and with the crazy events that happened in A Court of Mist and Fury. I remember being in shock the whole time reading that book and damn it I need this book now!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

May 5, 2017


I can not expressed to you how much I love the fact that this movie is called Vol. 2 and not Guardians of the Galaxy 2. I hate when they call the movie sequel number 2 like just come up with a title!! I’m so excited for this movie, I’ve watched all the trailers so far and I’m ready for this! Baby Groot is the cutest thing ever to exist The first Guardians of the Galaxy was a really get movie, I’ve never laughed so hard in my life and I’m hoping that this one is going to just as amazing as the first. I’m really excited for all the upcoming Marvel movies for this year and for next year and I hope that they never stop making them because I don’t know what I would do!


The Carnelian Crow by Colleen Gleason

July 11, 2017


YASS!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been waiting for this book for so long and by that I mean I’ve been waiting since January. I wrote a review for the first three books here which you should check out. Well actually you should read the first three books then preorder this books and then read these books. They are fantastic and so underrated! More people need to read these books because they are soooooooo great! It has two great female leads and great plot lines. READ THEM!!!!

10 Top Favorite Shows! | 2017 Winter Edition

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

#10 Daredevil


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

#9 The Crown


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

#8 How to get away with Murder


*they all look so sexy in this picture

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

#7 Sherlock


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

#6 New Girl


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

#5 Supernatural


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

#4 A Series of Unfortunate Events


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

#3 Superstore


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

#2 Victoria


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

#1 BBC Class


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

Well that was a lot of fun to write. I hope you guys this top 10 list. I’m planning on doing this for Spring, Summer, Fall, and all do something like this in December of this year then maybe next year. Do you guys agree with what I’ve said? Have you guys watched any of these shows? If not you really should. I hope you guys enjoy this top 10 list! Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!

Greetings everyone! Today I’m reviewing the Series of Unfortunate Events which came out yesterday and I just finished it and I have a lot of things to say so let’s get started!


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

I’m going to be honest I never read this series until last year. I’ll hold for your judgment *i feel the judgement right now I literally finished the last book on Wednesday. I had alway wanted to read this series but for some reason it took me 16 years to do it. I was going to put the ASOUE books on my 2016 favorites list but I just wanted to finish all the books first. So you guys should be seeing this series on my 2017 favorite book list. I had been looking forward to this series since the  first teaser trailer came out in like 2015 I think maybe before and I never heard anything also after that so I forgot but then more stuff kept coming out and I got so excited!

The show came on yesterday on Netflix and I started watching but then my sister got mad because I was watching it without her so then I stopped watching it and then we started it up again, finished it and now I’m here telling how fucking awesome this show was! It was spot on and beautifully filmed and wonderfully casted. It was so good seeing these books coming to life! It was perfect! Two trailers were released for this series one was funny and the other was pretty dark and I think that was pretty great. That’s what this series is it’s really dark which is something that it is know for but this story has it’s humorous moments. Sometimes that is hard for shows and movies to have that perfect blend because they can be too dark but not funny enough or like the case of the film version of this series they can be too happy.

This show was that perfect blend of humor and darkness that is this series which just adds on to it’s greatness. There was a movies that had the plot lines from the first three books, I haven’t seen it but I have hear horrible things about like the fact that they tried to squeeze  three books into one movie. The cast for the Baudelaire kids look much older then they should be and Klaus ISN’T WEARING GLASS! WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THAT? THAT’S HIS WHOLE CHARACTER! I MEAN NOT REALLY BUT YOU GET WHAT I’M SAYING! But we aren’t here to talk about that film we are here to talk about the show which is much better.

*movie left and tv show right

This show was so great. The characters were great, the story was great, I had so much fun watching this. Everyone was perfect this show was perfect. This show was a great kick off to 2017. Okay that’s all I can say for my non spoiler section so if you haven’t seen the show yet I’m going to ask you to leave. It’s for your own safety if you don’t want to get spoiled. Go watch it and then come back and finish this review. Bye bye! If you have watched the show then you can just keep on reading the rest of this review and I hope you enjoy.




 Okay now that the non spoiler people are gone let’s talk about this show! This show was the best and as soon as the opening came on I knew that was going to be awesome. If you know that in the books something that is said is that you shouldn’t read these books if you want something happy and that is what the opening credits for this show is. It’s Neil Patrick Harris sing about the story for the two episode and about how you should look away. The opening was written by Daniel Handler who wrote the books under Lemony Snicket so that just adds on to the greatness.

They also have Dear Beatrice after the opening in every part one episode because every part one episode is the beginning of new book and when that happened I was just like this show is going to be amazing. I was watching these with my siblings and my mom who hadn’t read the books so I was just freaking out and they were just like what?  I love that had the Dear Beatrice because those are such a big apart of the feel of the books and it made me so happy!

There are so many references and easter eggs to future books all over the place. When I was rewatching the second episode with my siblings I heard Count Olaf say something about a sugar bowl and I was I UNDERSTOOD THAT REFERENCE!!!! Speaking of Count Olaf who is played by Neil Patrick Harris was amazing. I knew he was going to be good when I saw the trailers and he was even better in the actual show oh my god it was great. He was so perfect as Count Olaf like in the books he freaked me out and he was able to make me feel like that again. I didn’t see the film like I said before but I have heard mixed things about Jim Carry’s Count Olaf so.

*movie left and tv show right

Neil was literally one of the best part of this show with the different disguise *#yessicahaircuts along with his henchmen and two women. They were all so funny most of the humor of the show came from their characters goofiness *well many the henchman. There were a lot of other reference like in the last episode when Olaf and the Hook handed man are running away, Olaf was just like that it’s I’m going to be working alone and I’m never going to have a partner which is foreshadowing is to come in the next season with Esme Squalor hopefully.

I think will bring her because this show was spot on in like every episode with characters and storylines. Some of the lines from the books make it into the episodes which is so great!

Patrick Warburton as Lemony Snicket was just fantastic!  He just narrates in a voice that is like soo nice to listen to and it’s also like kind of monotone which just makes it better. He was a lot of fun to watch because he’ll just pop up at random places and start talking and explain whats up and then they’ll have lot of things that help him go along with what he is explaining. I don’t think they had a Lemony Snicket in the film but I know that they had the voice of Jude Law. He probably was good I wouldn’t know but I think even if I had seen then I still would have like Patrick Warburton better.

I already talked about this but I’m going to talk about it again and that is the Baudelaires. They were casted so perfectly in age (well I think Louis Hynes is like 15 but he looks really young and Sunny is infant so that wouldn’t have been too hard) and looks. They all did such a good job as their characters. I loved Malina Weissman as Violet she did such a good job as Violet. Every time she put her hair up in a bow it was so dramatic and I loved it. Louis Hynes was a perfect Klaus and he looked adorable in his glass I loved him. Presley Smith is the cutest baby in the whole world. She is perfect for Sunny!

Other characters were on the show and other actors that I didn’t know about were on the show like Will Arnett and Cobie Smulders, they play two parents trying to get back to their kids and at first I thought that they were the Baudelaires’ parents but it turns out that they were they Quagmire parents and we see the Quagmire Fire. I was just freaking out and my family was just like what? Mr. Poe was a character that I don’t like but is perfectly performed on this show. Uncle Monty and Aunt Josephine were so fun to watch on tv when they die I was just like why!!!!!! The show ends with the kids at the Academy which is the location in the fifth book and the Quagmires are there with them and then it ends with a song talking about not getting a happy ending which was so great! I loved this show!

This show was perfect in every way. I need a season two right now! Netflix if you are reading this just get on it because it’s so perfect! Let’s hope for an even better second season if we get one. Did you guys watch this? Did you enjoy this as much as I did? 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!

Shadowhunters Season One review!

Greetings earthlings! Today I’m reviewing Shadowhunters season one because season two comes on tonight and what the hell I forgot to post this earlier in year!


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

Shadowhunters is based on the Mortal Instruments books series by Cassandra Clare which I have reviews for City of Bones, City of Ashes, and Lady Midnight out right now. My City of Glass review is coming out soon so look out for that. There already was a Mortal Instruments film and I liked it but no one else seem to but I was really looking out for this show ever since it was first announced and ever since I finished the series. My excited dropped though the more stuff they released because man it looked cheesy as hell and had an actress playing Clary that didn’t seem like the best actress.

 I got what I expect. An okay show with Actors and Actress that some I found great like Alberto Rosendo, Matthew Daddario, Harry Shum Jr., and Emeraude Toubia. They played their characters so well and I loved them. Some I thought were okay which is the rest of the cast. I’m sorry to say that because to be honest I like Dom Sherwood, I thought he was good in Vampire Academy and he is not too bad to look. He very once and a while he seems like a good Jace but sometimes I just don’t like him. Clary on the other hand, she hasn’t been in a lot but man I had a little bit a hope that it was just the trailers making her look cheesy. Nope and what the hell is up with her hair?


Why is it orange? It looks like a wig but it’s not!

I have both pros and cons with this show. One of the cons is that it stopped following the books after two episodes. The first two episodes were pretty close to the book and they were pretty good episodes but then episode three came alone and man that was pretty bad. It was just so weird, episode three was my least favorite. I had a test the day after it air so I couldn’t watch but then I started watching and it took me three days to finish it because I just was bored. Jace takes Clary to this underworld bar and has her make out with a vampire and I’m like what???? Then Izzy is ‘hanging out’ with this fairy dude and I’m again like what????? Then we have got my baby Simon who was kidnapped and is now with Raphael and Camille. Alec is off somewhere.

Another thing was they tried to push the ships too hard. I mean come on?? One of the reasons I loved Magnus and Alec is was just watching their relationship grow and there also was a lot of funny moments with Alec trying to hide their relationship. But in the show they just tried so hard to push them together and it was just weird. I didn’t feel that connected to them or that Alec felt the same way for some episodes.  They also did something that I hate which is bring ship names into the show. I don’t find it funny at all I find it like they are trying too hard to be funny.

We also got this weird arrange wedding thing and I don’t get me wrong that kiss was epic and I think Lydia made the right choice with calling off the wedding so that he could be happy. I wanted the City of Glass kiss though after they had before grown and I didn’t get that. We also didn’t get the great Jace and Clary kiss that we got in City of Bones. We got some lame kiss that happened in front of the whole squad and not the romantic one we got in the book.

There were a lot of errors that were in the shows. Like Mrs. Lightwood is like stone cold to Izzy and nice to Jace and Alec but in the books she was nice to Izzy and Alec because they were her kids and stone cold to Jace. Also Lydia is from the Branwell family and she’s like my grandfather ran one of these and I’m like that’s not what happen did any one read the books.

I do have some pros about the show like I said I loved some the cast and how the portrayed the characters. My favorites are Alberto Rosendo and Emeraude Toubia. I love them so much as their characters and they are both very pretty. Everyone on this show is very pretty. I think that the show got better was it went on and with all this new season two stuff showing and it looks pretty close to the books now. They got the Smallville show runners and I’m currently watching that and I really like it.

This is a show where you shouldn’t go in expecting the books because it’s not going to be the same thing. Go into this to look at a different way of the Mortal Instruments because then you should be able to find some entertainment in watching this show. Do you enjoy the show? If you do then are you excited for the second season which comes back on tonight? 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!

Favorite Books in 2016

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


Carry On by Rainbow Rowell


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

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


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

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare 


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

Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty


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

November 9 by Colleen Hoover


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

The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kirstoff

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

Wonder by R.J Palacio


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

Amy & Rodgers Epic Detour by Morgan Matson


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

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan 


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

Forever Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon


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

Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon


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

Seven Tears at High Tide by C.B. Lee


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

Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas


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

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

Greetings everyone! Today I’m talking about the Doctor Who Spin off, Class created by New York Time Best Selling Author, Patrick Ness!


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

I’m doing something different with this review. I will talk about it with giving any spoilers for the first half but then I switch over to a spoiler section and you will be warned when that section is coming.

Class is a Doctor Who spin off and it is the second Doctor Who spin off out there. The first one was Torchwood and I loved it but man did it mess me up. It was a great show but so much stuff happened that man it left me crying in the end and so did Doctor Who. Because of Torchwood, I was really scared to start this show. What if it was going to be like that again. I don’t want another one of those shows *secretly do though. I got sick this weekend and my sister decide to show me all eight episodes and they were amazing!

I found out some stuff about this show which is that it was created and written by Patrick Ness an author that I love! More Than This was freaking fantastic and A Monster Calls left me in tears. If you guys haven’t read a Patrick Ness then you are missing out. Go read A Monster Calls because the film is coming and I’m so excited! Back to regular programming. I also found out that there are three Class books which I’m excited about even though tv books sucks. My sister went out and bought two of those books and I’m currently reading Stone House which is my book club book of the month *join my bookclub here And lastly, this show isn’t well known and it might not get a second season.

*cries off into the distance

I need a season two because I need to know what happens next. I spent most of today trying to talk my friends into watching Class. I finished like the second episode and I started this draft because I knew that I had a lot to talk about. It’s so good and you should watch and I will tell you why. Class follows a prince who goes by Charlie and his protector who goes by Ms. Quill and after their planet is destroyed and they are saved by the Doctor, the two are on Earth with Charlie as a high school student and Ms. Quill as his teacher. They met a bunch of different people and they all fight aliens together. Here is the trailer so you can watch it.

The cast is great and they are British and beautiful. This show has that Doctor Who feel in some of the episodes which I loved. My favorite character is probably everyone because they all have different traits and personalities that just fit together and I love it! Go watch this show!! So that’s all can say for the non spoiler section. If you haven’t watch the show then you watch and then come back and finish reading this review. Okay please leave if you haven’t watch Class because I don’t want you to get spoiled.




Now that the nonspoilered people are gone, let’s get down to business. This show is soo great and it made me even more emotionally unstable then I already am. Every episode was a different adventure and the characters go through so much giving them a lot of development.

It didn’t know anything about this show before I started. I knew two things which was that it was a doctor who spin off and that the main character was gay and had a boyfriend. I didn’t watch it because the boyfriend hadn’t be confirmed for the main cast and the writers were like teasing about someone not making it out alive. I didn’t want to watch because I didn’t want to another Torchwood because that just messed me up. My sister started watching it and then she made me start watching it and I loved every second of it!

The first episode was great! It starts with this kid running through the school with this weird thing that we later learn is a Shadow Kin which destroyed Charlie and Ms. Quill’s planet.That kid the next day is claimed to be missing. Charlie is the new kid who doesn’t really understand human things. April who is one of the main characters asks him to prom and he doesn’t say no in the nicest way and I’m just like Charlie you beautiful idiot. Ms. Quill isn’t the nicest teacher but that is pretty understandable because her kind was destroyed, she has this thing in her head that makes her under Charlie’s control.

They are trying to stay under the radar but that doesn’t work out because the Shadow Kin start attacking April and around girl who is also a main character named Tanya. Both are saved but April ends up with the King of the Shadow Kin heart. She and the Shadow Kin are connected which is crazy. Ram loses his girl and his leg from a Shadow Kin and he decides better. The doctor makes an appearance in this episode and he says a line about IKEA and I never knew how much I need that one line. In one of the scenes when the Doctor is talking there is this board with Clara’s name on it because this is the school where she taught.

My favorite character is Charlie who is played by Greg Austin and he does such a great job playing this character. I mean he is an Alien who is new to everything on Earth and he is so adorable. There is one scene in episode two where April is talking about folk music and while Tanya and April are talking he is just looking it up what it is. Greg also has fantastic chemistry with Jordan who plays his on screen boyfriend, Matteusz.


I love them together! I’m so scared that Matteusz was going to die because the actor who plays him isn’t apart of the main cast and tv doesn’t have the best record of keeping non straight and non white people alive. The morning after the finale, my sister went and watched it and gave me the good news that he doesn’t die! *yasssssssssssssss! But bad things is that more then one person die and man was that emotional. I’m now scared though that they will break up because Charlie used the Cabinet of Souls, which was all the souls of the people of his kind and that can be used as a weapon but he didn’t want to. Matteusz didn’t what him to use it but he did anyway and I just want my kids to be happy and work through this!

I think my favorite episodes are Detained which is episode six and the Nightvisiting which is episode three. Detained is a great episode and it is angsty as hell but I loved it! There was so much out because they get stuck in a room with a truth stone and secrets come out like Tanya saying that it feels like they treat her like a kid, Matteusz says that he is scared of Charlie, Ram tells April that he loves her but he knows that she doesn’t feel the same way, and then April confirms that, and then Charlie admits that he wants to use the cabinets of souls and I’m just over here dying of feeling because I just want everyone to be happy!

The Nightvisiting was also a great episode it wasn’t as angsty but it was still great. This creatures take the form of dead people and claims that they are there to help humans let go. Tanya sees her dad and Ms. Quill see her sister and Rachel Ram’s old girlfriend makes a small appearance. Charlie and Matteusz for most of the episode in Charlie’s room because Matteusz’s parents kicked him out and they were comforting each other and doing other things to each other. April and Ram kiss in this episode which I didn’t think I would like but I really ship them. They are really cute and I love them which makes what happens in the season finale heartbreaking.

In the final after what happened in episode six, no one is talking to each other. They are all ignoring each other, I mean Matteusz is living in a car so that he won’t see Charlie. The Shadow Kin come back and they kill Ram’s dad and Tanya’s mom and then the king is just like Matteusz is number five and I’m like  IF YOU TOUCH ANYONE OF MY CHILDREN, I’LL REACH THROUGH THE SCREEN AND KILL YOU!! Then like they try to kill Tanya’s brothers but the crew gets saves them in time. They all met in the gym where April tells Charlie to kill because then the king will die too and Charlie shots her and becomes king and uses the  Cabinet of Souls to take down all of them and then he tries to kill himself but Ms. Quill saved him. A soul goes into April’s bodies to try and save her but it back fires and April wakes up the Shadow Kin King’s body and then it ends!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This show is amazing and it makes me unemotional unstable but I loved every seconds of it. Have you guys watched this show? If you have what did you think of it? Did you love it as  much as I did?
