Shadowhunters Episode 3 - Short Review



I think this is going to be my last review for this series. I was hoping that I would have more good things to say and then I'd get to fangirl over everything but I don't want to keep harping on the same things or keep ragging on this TV show. I will say last nights episode was.... just too different. I also hate to say that it's forgettable, I watched the episode last night and have already forgotten pretty much all of it. Sad.

I understand that when you adapt books to screen that things need to change. This is just too much. I am glad that each episode does seem to get a little better. I'm not sure if that's just because everything is growing on me though.

Illuminae - Review

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

Shadowhunters Episode 2 - Review



So here we are with the second episode. Before I jump into anything, I do want to say that I think this episode is better than the first. That doesn't mean I love this episode and think it's great, because I don't. There are things that are still bothering me, like Clary and Jace. It just mean that this one is better than the train wreck of the first one.

December Wrap Up!





I did not read many books this month, only three. I've been so busy with my now full time job, Christmas, classes, my father's birthday, and getting sick. So I've not got to blog or even read much at all. I've not read a single book so far this year and it's sad. It's caused me to get into a reading slump as well. I have so much I want to read but I look at the book and just sigh. It makes me feel like why bother? I'll just have to stop reading and go to work. It would take me a whole week or more to read a book and by that point I'm afraid I've forgotten most of the beginning. 

I've just got to find that good balance to reading and balancing mundane life. If any of you guys do the same, give me some tips in the comments! I could use them. Anyway, off to the three books I read in December.

Also tell me what you guys read this part month below in the comments. Also, I've missed you all! I've got a lot to catch up on so be looking out for me to comment on your blogs.
