TV Tuesday Volume 10 – The Last Season

TV Tuesday Volume 10 – The Last Season

Here we are, folks. We made it. We’re finally at the end of the currently available Gilmore Girls story, and I have to say that I’m a little sad for it. I love getting to spend time in Stars Hollow, even though some of it (especially the last bit of it) doesn’t quite make me squee with joy. It’s a fun place to be and is always at least a little entertaining. Now, just like I had some issues with…

Book Review – A Criminal Magic

Book Review – A Criminal Magic

I picked up A Criminal Magic on a whim at work. The cover was pretty, and anything 20s basically is a guarantee that I’ll at least try and read it. It wasn’t until I was more than a hundred pages in that I looked on the back and saw V. E. Schwab’s name there, all nice and pretty, telling me that I should read this book. So, naturally, because V. E. Schwab is queen, I finished it. I wasn’t absolutely pulled…

The Raven King or The Book That Ruined Me

The Raven King or The Book That Ruined Me

I know I haven’t said much about the Raven Cycle books as I finished them, but that ends with The Raven King. I thought “Oh, just save them and do a mini review at the end of the month or something. You don’t want to ruin the series for the 4 other people in this world that haven’t read it.” This is not something I can do. So here’s a kind of review of all of them and mostly a…

TV Tuesday Volume 9 – Whining About Season 6

TV Tuesday Volume 9 – Whining About Season 6

Alright, so, here’s the thing. I don’t like this season. In fact, I hate it. I was serious about wanting to stay forever in season five, and I really didn’t want to keep going. This time through, I realized what was coming, and how much I would not enjoy it, and yet here I am, finishing. Sticking it out through the bitter end. Okay, I’m going to try and make this less whiny as I go along, but I can’t…

#ReadThemAllAThon – Knocking out my TBR

#ReadThemAllAThon – Knocking out my TBR

I’m absolutely loving Aentee’s Pokemon kick! So when I saw that she was doing a readathon that’s Pokemon focused I started trying to figure out what exactly I would read for it. All the details can be found at Read At Midnight but here are the basics. There are eight badges and a book to read for each one. Each book and gym completed, review posted, earns you CP (combat points) for your chosen Pokemon. After certain point goals are reached, your Pokemon…

TV Tuesday Volume 8 – Raving Over Season 5

TV Tuesday Volume 8 – Raving Over Season 5

I always hate it when season five is over because it’s my favorite. I always kind of want to live in the space it creates. Rory has finally gotten her shit together and has left the whole Dean thing in the past, LOGAN IS HERE, and it’s just before Lorelai starts throwing her most immature hissy fit ever in the world. The one that makes me hate her a little. Then the Luke and Lorelai thing happens FINALLY and then…

We Need to Talk About the Cursed Child

We Need to Talk About the Cursed Child

I’ve been sitting on this for D A Y S trying to figure out what to say about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I’ve changed my mind about this review 7 times (which is actually why it’s going up so late). I don’t know what to think about this book/play/story/thing. Nor do I know where to start. There will be spoilers, probably, so be warned. If you haven’t read it yet, I’d suggest you hold off on reading this…

TV Tuesday Volume 7 – The Gilmores Go To Yale

I just spent all morning writing the wrong post. At least I’m prepared for next week, I suppose, but this will teach me to watch ahead and not pay attention to what I’m blogging! So now I’ll work on the right post, and here I give you Gilmore Girls season 4! The Lorelais I want to go on their Europe trip. It seems like it would be so much fun, and just. Although I don’t know how there was any way…

The Raven Boys Review

The Raven Boys Review

I was a little hesitant to read The Raven Boys because of the sheer amount of hype around the series. So I didn’t read it, I listened to it. And I have to say that while I liked the audio quite a bit, I didn’t hear a lot of the voices as the reader did. Actually I think in my head I had different voices for all of them. But I’ll get to that later. I LOVED the whole psychic part of…

TV Tuesday Volume 6 and the rant against Jess

TV Tuesday Volume 6 and the rant against Jess

So WE HAVE A RELEASE DATE for the new mini-movies! November 25th is looking a lot shinier from where I’m sitting. In addition to being ever grateful that I won’t have to deal with the retail side of Black Friday, I can also emerge from my food coma in peace while bingeing the new movies. THIS IS THE BEST THING. Anyway. On to the actual post. I’m going to start with my biggest complaint about this whole season. Jess. I hate…
