The Umbrella Academy Season 3

I’m currently halfway through this season, and I’m obsessed! As always, you just can’t help but love this family no matter how much they FRUSTRATE the hell out of you! And trust me, they’re VERY, VERY, frustrating, but still I find myself loving the Hargreeves family(and I always will)! I can’t wait to finish this season and see how it all plays out.

My Favorite Dramas of 2021!

I watched a lot of dramas this year. The majority of them I enjoyed, and then they’re those that I LOVED! So I’m really excited to share with you some of my favorites that I watched this year. These aren’t drama’s that were released in 2021(well some are), but these are dramas that I watched this year! Of course they’re SO MANY drama’s that were released in 2021 that I still have yet to watch. I’m excited to watch them this year!

My favorite dramas of 2021 were:

Sisyphus: The Myth

I’ve already written two posts dedicated to Sisyphus: The Myth, so I won’t say anything more about is. I will link the posts and you can check out my entire thoughts there! Simply put…I LOVED IT!

My thoughts on the ending of Sisyphus: The Myth –> Click Here!

Word of Honor

Word of Honor is a show that will keep you watching. It’s such an intense and interesting story, with a compelling plot and cast of characters. And overall, it was pure enjoyment! From the leads, to the fight sequences, it was a fun ride!

Law School

Throughout my watch of Law School I felt as though it had a How To Get Away With Murder(US tv show) vibe to it(which I really enjoyed), so it didn’t surprise me that I would end up enjoying this one! You find yourself so invested in it, and just when you think you’re going to stop watching for the night, BAM the ending ends with a cliffhanger, and you’re like “okay, just one more episode”. It’s absolutely addicing!

Happiness

I was really excited for this drama, and it did not disappoint. I was so invested in the characters and what would happen to them. This is one of the few drama’s where I believe it needed MORE episodes, because I wanted to see what happened with all of the characters at the end!

The King’s Affection

The King’s Affection was the last drama I watched in 2021, and I was so happy I ended the year with this one. I really thought I was just going to enjoy this drama, but I found myself so invested in the story, and the characters. I needed to know what happened and how it was going to end. For me, this was a great drama to end the year with and of course it made my list of favorites.

The Untamed

I might have to say The Untamed is my favorite drama that I watched in 2021. I loved everything about this drama. It was released in 2019, and on one hand I’m mad at myself for waiting so long to watch it, but on the other hand, I think I watched it at the perfect time for me, and it made the experience so much better! This is a drama that I will definitely rewatch over and over and over!

So these were my favorite dramas of 2021! Have you watched any of them? What were your favorite dramas of the year? I would love to know!

My Best Reads of 2021!

It’s that time of year! Time to share my best reads of 2021! These are not books that were published in 2021, but just books that I read this year.

This year I read a total of 38 books! My favorites were

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by MacKenzie Lee

This book was such a surprise for me. I honestly did not expect to love this book as much as I did! From the story, to the characters, and everything in between, this was a great time!

Heartstopper Vol 1 and 2 by Alice Oseman

Heartstopper was one that I figured I would end up loving, so this wasn’t a surprise. It’s such a great story that everyone should read! I’ve only read the first two volumes, but I can’t wait to continue on!

Dear Martin by Nic Stone

I believe Dear Martin is a story that everyone should read. It has a great message, with fascintating characters, and interesting discussion questions. I was so invested in this story while reading, I wasn’t able to put it down!

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare

I knew I would love this book, so this is no surprise! Number one, it’s a shadowhunter story and I love all of them. Number two, it’s a finale! For me, Cassandra Clare knows how to write finales very well! I LOVED this one!

Home Before Dark by Riley Sager

I was very surprised by this book because going into it I’ve heard mixed things. So I wasn’t sure what to think. I was so glad not to be spoiled for this book because I believe the ending is what is hit or miss for people. Overall, I ended up really enjoying my time reading this one, and it may be my favorite Riley Sager book I’ve read(I still two other books of his left to read)

Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQusiton

This book was somewhat of a surprise. I expected a romance story, but what I didn’t expect was for it to be as STEAMY as it was(and damn was it STEAMY.) But I loved every minute of it. I really enjoyed my time reading this story and gollowing these characters. I can’t wait to read more by Casey!

Currently Watching

These are the shows that I’m currently watching!

Lost In SpaceSeason 3

I’ve been wating for this final season and I was so excited to finally see the words “new episodes” show up on my netflix page! At the moment, I only have 2 episode left of this final season, and I’m excited to see how it all wraps up!

Hellbound

At the moment I’ve only watched one episode of this, so I don’t have much to say. I can say that I’m intrigued to watch the rest of it!

Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag || Happy Thanksgiving!

I came across this tag over at Elley the Book Otter page and thought lets do this! So here’s the Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag!

Turkey: The centerpiece of any Thanksgiving Feast, but it’s always dry and actually isn’t that great… – A book that everyone likes, for some reason that completely escapes you.

You by Caroline Kepnes. I’ve tried to read this book a couple of times now, and I just can’t seem to get into it. I think this one is just not for me. (Also, I haven’t watched the show yet, but I do want to check it out)

Stuffing: Warm and filling, and best when smothered with gravy – A comfort read.

For me, this would be the Shadowhunter books by Cassandra Clare! At this point I’ve reread them multiple times(at least The Mortal Instruments), and I still feel like I’m finding things that I missed. And each time, I get sucked back into the world!

Potatoes: Boil ’em, mash ’em, stick ’em in a stew – A book that’s great in any format – hardcover, digital, audio…

I believe the A Good Girls Guide to Murder books by Holly Jackson are perfect in any format! I’ve read the first two books, three ways. I listen to the audiobook for both, while reading the hardcover for the first book, and the ebook for the second! I enjoyed them each way.

Green Bean Casserole: the obligatory side dish that you have to have… whether you want it for not. – A book that you were obligated to read (for school, for a book club, because it was a gift…)

There were a lot of books that I had to read for school that I didn’t enjoy, but they’re also some that I did. So I thought I’d share one that I did enjoy. A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. I will admit, it has been awhile since I’ve read this, but I remember being so surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. I do wonder if I were to reread this, what I would think of it now.

Jello Salad: Look, this is dessert, how on earth does jello with bits of fruit and marshmallows and whipped cream get classified as ANY sort of salad? – A book that is really bizarre.

I honestly can’t think of a really bizarre book that I’ve read off the top of my head…hmm…

Cranberries: Do you serve real cranberries, or canned cranberry jelly? A book that is highly divisive – and you have strong opinions about it.

I’m going to have to steal her answer and say Twilight! It gets a lot of flack, and I really don’t think it deserves it. Of course it has it’s flaws, but I think it’s a series that will always be important to people!

Pie: Whether it’s pumpkin, apple, pecan, or French silk, it’s not Thanksgiving without pie – A book you can’t live without.

I’m going to have to repeat an answer and go with the Shadowhunter series as a whole. I’ve been reading these books for a very long time, and I just can’t imagine what it be like to not have this series, and these characters! I absolutely love this series!

November “TBR”

So this past week I’ve been in this mood where everything I pick up is just not grabbing my attention. Even if it’s a book I know I’ll enjoy, I just can’t seem to focus. Usually I keep trying until I find something that does, or I just ride it out until I’m back in the reading mood. So this is a very short and simple TBR. And who knows if I’ll even get to it!

I’ve put two books on my TBR list for this month, and considering this weird reading mood that I’m in, we’ll see how it goes.
