Reaction || Shadowhunters 2B Teasers

:02- “I’m not your brother Clary” FINALLY he tells her!

:05- I may be one of the few people who don’t hate seeing Simon and Clary as a couple. I mean of course, I want CLACE. But I don’t hate seeing Simon and Clary together(which really surprised me)

:06- You have to respect Jace for not wanting to ruin “A good thing” for Clary.

:01- AHHH Jace, Clary, Isabelle, and Alec together!

:02- Raphael and Izzy drama! When it comes to what happen, it’s not all Isabelle’s fault, and it’s not all Raphael’s fault.  However, none of this would’ve happened if it wasn’t for Aldertree. Damn you Aldertree!

:04- MALEC! YESSSS!

#FridayReads [4]

Today, and this weekend, I’ll be rereading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. It has been quite awhile since I last read this book, so I thought a reread was due! Plus its 10 year bookaversary is coming up!

City_of_Bones

When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder. Much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with odd markings. This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons–and keeping the odd werewolves and vampires in line. It’s also her first meeting with gorgeous, golden-haired Jace. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in an ordinary mundane like Clary? And how did she suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….

For those of you who don’t know, this is the first book in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. The same series the TV show Shadowhunters is based off of. Have you read this series? Do you watch the show?

The Vampire Diaries: Series Finale || Favorite Moments

Damon and Stefan’s Goodbye tvd_8-16

Damon and Stefan have always been my favorite non-romantic relationship on the show! And I always loved seeing moments together like this! This scene was so emotional and heartbreaking, especially when they were trying to explain to one another why it needed to be them to sacrifice themselves.

Bonnie and Bennett Witches Save Mystic Falls

Bonnie freakin 8x16_bonnie2Bennett has always been one of the best and the most SELFLESS characters on the show. She was always willing to sacrifice herself and her happiness time and time again for the ones she loves. To see her be the one to save Mystic Falls doesn’t surprise me one bit. However the scene with her, Grams, and generations of Bennett witches was just badass, and I absolutely loved it! However I’m still pissed about them not bringing Enzo back, so they can both have there happy ending! Bonnie and Enzo are two characters who deserved that!

Stefan and Elena/Stefan and Lexi

This schqdefaultene! We NEEDED this! Stefan and Elena was where it all started and to see them FINALLY have a moment like this. We really needed it. Even though these two are not in love with each other anymore, they will always love one another. This scene was sweet, emotional, and just absolutely necessary. Plus the song Never Say Never played as they ended the goodbye! PERFECTION! And then we can’t forgot when he does leave, he walks out to see Lexi, finding peace with her! That scene was EPIC!

Damon and Elena

What we’ve been waiting for: the Delena reunion! It wasn’t this big, over the top reunion. They simply see each other, run into each other arms, kiss and hug. I know a lot of people wimagesere disappointed with this, but to be honest, I really quite enjoyed it. If you think about it, it was very bittersweet. I mean yes, they have each other back, but Damon just lost his brother and was saying goodbye to him, plus he’s now human. I mean come on, he has to be feeling so many different emotions at that moment. And Elena just woke up, and she lost someone really important to her. With all that going on, I think the reunion was done well and fit with the tone of the story in that moment. Of course I know quite a few people might disagree(that’s okay!).

Finding Peace

The ending, at least in my opinionthe-vampire-diaries-defan-8x16n, was perfect. I loved how we got to see what everyone was doing, or going to do in the future. How they had loved ones that died looking out for them, and eventually finding peace with them! Elena and Damon living a long and happy life, and when they do pass on: Elena finds peace with her parents, Aunt Jenna, and John, while Damon finds peace with Stefan, finally getting to see him again. I absolutely freakin loved that the final scene was of Stefan and Damon, and the final line was:

“Damon.”

“Hello Brother”

#IIReadathon Wrap Up!

Dana over at @andbookhoarding hosted the Informal Impromptu Readathon from February 27th until March 4th. As what I normally do, I decided to join in last mimg_5395inute. It was a fun readathon, with sprints being hosted every night, which really helped with my reading. I was able to read 3 books this week, which is the most I’ve read in one week!

The first book I read was The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury and I gave this book a 4 out of 5. This book was a retelling of Aladdin and was a definite surprise. I really enjoyed the characters and retake on the story!

Next I read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I’ve been wanting to read this book since I watched the trailer. I’m really glad I was able to get to it during the readathon. This book was such a fast read, and I really did end up enjoying it. I ended up giving this book a 4.3 out of 5. I loved how it was told throughout different formats like IM’s and Emails as well. The characters were a lot of fun and I loved the romance.

The last book I read Was Nerve by Jeanne Ryan. I really didn’t like this book and I gave it a 1 out of 5. I watched he movie last month which made me want to read the book. I enjoyed the movie. It wasn’t anything great, but it was simply fun to watch on a Sunday afternoon. However, I really didn’t like the book. I didn’t like the writing, or the characters, and I really didn’t like the romance. It just wasn’t for me. I do however recommend the movie if you want something fun.

Trailer Thoughts: Everything, Everything

So I finally watched the Everything, Everything trailer and I thought I would share my thoughts. First, I think it’s important to mention that I HAVE NOT read the book. So these thoughts are just from the trailer alone.

everything_everythingI absolutely adore this trailer. It seems like it’s going to be such a cute, yet emotional movie! From what I’ve heard, it gives away a lot from the book? As I said, I haven’t read the book, so I can’t really say. I can definitely say that after watching this trailer, I really want to read the book. So here’s hoping my library has it in!

I thought the music in this trailer was great, and fit really well! But what I think is the most important thing are the actors. The casting for this movie seems fantastic. Just from this trailer you can tell that the two leads have such amazing chemistry together. I really can’t wait to see this movie. Until then, I definitely plan on picking up the book.

What are your thoughts? I’d really love to hear from those who have read the book? Does it seem like it’ll be a good adaptation?
