So I just really needed to talk about my thoughts on the ending of this show. I have a lot of things going on in my mind and I just wanted to share them.
Is Seo Hae real or is Tae Sul hallucinating her?
I just don’t know…she could be real or not.
I think he remembers her because he did put the code in for the uploader, and I believe the uploader was still made, but not October 31st like it was always made before. It was delayed, which changed the past since the bombs didn’t go off that day. So I think everything that happened in this time became the new past and that’s why Tae Sul remembers Seo Hae.
Now was she there? I just don’t know. She could be a hallucination. Instead of him seeing his brother, he sees her. Or she could actually be there. There could be a new problem and she found another journal and found him again.
Also with Tae Sul killing himself at the end…to me it made sense. He said he knew this was going to happen but kept putting it off because he wanted to be with Seo Hae for as long as possible. To me that makes sense. Obviously he would do everything in his power to change it this time, so putting off killing himself for the last moment makes sense.
He also told Seo Hae to find him no matter what it takes. No matter when, to find him. So he knew he would see her again.
As for Sigma, I feel like Won Ju(Sigma) will still be evil, but he has changed in this new time. He became the way he was because no one cared for him and no one showed him kindness. However, in the final episode, because of Seo Hae father(who showed him kindness and that he does care) he did change. Now he still hates Tae Sul, as we saw from the ending, but I do think he has changed(probably not much though). I also think Eddie Kim will become the “new Sigma“.
Obviously this is all up to interpretation. Normally I’m not a fan of open endings, but with this particular drama I’ve seen a lot of different theories online and I’ve had the best time reading them. They’re many different possibilities and I really enjoyed seeing what people came up with! I just wanted to share my thoughts because I keep thinking about it and just needed to talk about it.
As I said earlier, these are just my thoughts on the ending of Sisyphus: The Myth. I think I may do a whole review of the drama as well!
This book was a lot of fun! I was worried because it’s told from four characters points of view, but honestly I found myself enjoying each character. I was really invested in this story and how it would unfold. I don’t know how I feel about the ending. For me, it was okay. I know some people really enjoyed the ending, while others not so much. Other than that, this was a good read! It was also my first Karen McManus book, and now I’m excited to read more books by her.
Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy
This was an interesting take on the Arthurian legend. I don’t read many retellings that deal with the Arthurian legend, so this was fun. I really thought this was a standalone going into it, but when I got to the end it leaves off on a cliffhanger. I should’ve looked into it more because I was looking for a standalone. Regardless, this was an enjoyable book.
Yes No Maybe So by Becca Albertalli and Aisha Saeed
I read this during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. It was a good read for a readathon. It keep me interested throughout the story. It’s one of those books(at least for me) that was good while I read it, but it’s not something I’ll go back to.
Wicked Fox by Kat Cho
I started this during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon and finished it a few days later. I really enjoyed this book! It was entertaing and very addicting. And I really enjoyed all of the characters. If you’re a fan of KDRAMAS, you’ll really enjoy this because it does read like one!
Fruit Baskets Vol 1
This was an okay read for me. The ending though went from happy to sad real quick! I eventually want to continue on with this!
During this readathon my goal was not to stay up for the entire 24 hours…I cant do that, but to just read more than I have been in a day. And I accomplished that. I was able to start and finish a book, and get about 70 pages into another, so I’m really happy with how it turned out!
I started and finished Yes No Maybe So and it was a good read. I ended up giving this book a 3 out of 5 stars.
I also got about 70 pages into Wicked Fox, which I’m quite enjoying! So it was a good reading day for me. On Goodreads(click to add me as a friend) it says that the kindle edition of Yes No Maybe So is 448 pages. So that plus the 70 pages of Wicked Fox means I was able to read 518 pages in a day. I’m very happy with that. Did you guys participate? How did you do?
Happy Readathon Day! It’s the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon today and so my day is going to consist of me starting and reading as much as I can of Wicked Fox. I will also be reading Alex + Ada in between. Are you participating? What are you reading?
Run On follows the story of a translator and a sprinter. We follow them throughout their jobs, life, and love.
What I liked?
Seon Gyeom. I really liked his character. He was honest, did what he wanted, didn’t give up, and took responsibility for his actions. It was quite refreshing to see a character like him, and I really think that Si-wan portrayed him well.
Seon Gyeom and Mi-joo as a couple was something that I ended up liking. Now let’s be honest, they really weren’t the most interesting couple, but I did find myself liking this relationship!
Seo Dan Ah. To be honest, I’m quite surprised by how much I ended up loving this character. In the beginning I wasn’t sure how I would feel about her, but by the end I loved her. There’s something about this character that makes you so invested.
Seo Dan Ah and Lee Young-hwa. This damn couple! I loved so much! They were so good together and I wanted so much more from this relationship!
Seon Gyeom and his friends. Seriously for someone who people think doesn’t have friends, he sure ends up with quite a bit. He really does get a long with people and I loved his relationships/friendships with Young-hwa, Wook-Shik, and Young Il. These friendships were great to watch!
Mi-joo job! I absolutely loved seeing Mi-joo working. She has so much passion for her job, it was amazing to see. And I loved how she cared so much about loving herself, and making that important!
The Script. Now to be honest this is a basic plot. Nothing mind blowing but I just think it was done well. The characters and the writing really worked for this script. And I think this is what makes it an either “love it or hate it” type of drama. If you’re not into the characters, you’re going to be disappointed.
What I didn’t like?
Mi-joo! Okay overall I did like her character, but that’s not to say that there weren’t things that really, and I mean really frustrated me about her.
She was so upset and annoying when she thought Dan Ah wanted Seon Gyeom. Even though she didn’t say it directly and was just trying to help him as his manager, Mi-joo was so annoyed with everything that she did. And at this point they weren’t even together and she would get mad/annoyed if they were just talking. It was frustrating.
Also the glasses scene really annoyed me. She was the one who wanted him to get his eyes checked, and when they said he would need glasses, she was upset and made faces at every pair because she didn’t want anything to cover his face. It might have just been me, but for some reason I was so annoyed at that part. Why should it matter if he has glasses, or if they cover his face? It just really, really annoyed me. She ended up being so happy when they offered contacts though. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but I was frustrated. (By the way, I’m someone who has been wearing glasses for the majority of my life.)
This was really the only thing that I didn’t enjoy, but when it’s the main character, it can really take you out of the drama. Luckily it didn’t last long, and overall I liked her character. Did you guys watch Run On? What did you think?
I personally quite enjoyed this portion of the book. It really surprised me, because I wasn’t sure what to expect. What happened to the characters in this alternate world was absolutely heartbreaking. Don’t even get me started on Magnus and Alec! And the Blackthorns…Damn! When Thule Livvy was telling Emma and Jules what happened to the Blackthorn family, it was heartbreaking.
Emma and Jules
Honestly, Emma and Jules are not my favorite characters, and this relationship did frustrate me throughout this series. However, I could tolerate them the most during this book. It was sad to see Julian without his emotions and how he treated the people around him. I knew it was going to be bad because he’s already a character that will do anything to protect the people he cares about. Now without any emotions, it will end up being 10xs worse. He could go around killing everyone!
Mark, Kieran and Cristina
I don’t know about anyone else, but this one was and is my freakin SHIP! I love these threes so much and I really didn’t expect to. When we were first introduced to Mark I loved him, and I still do. Same thing for Cristina! I love her so much, and throughout this entire series, my thought was NO ONE better hurt Cristina. I didn’t care about Kieran in Lady Midnight. He did things that were NOT okay, and even though he did try to help at the end, it didn’t make up for it. However, slowly we start to see more of him and the reason he did things, and how much he truly cares for Mark, and I started to like him. By the end of Queen of Air and Darkness, I absolutely adored Kieran. And I love these three together soooo much! As Emma said “hot faerie threesome” and I’m all for it!
Ty and Kit
This plot line followed Ty as he tried to bring Livvy back from the dead. It surprised me that no one noticed what he was doing…but at the same time, with everything going on, it does make sense. Kit, who didn’t want to do this, but also didn’t want to let Ty down, reluctantly went along with it. I really wish Kit would’ve just said no from the beginning. I understand why he didn’t, but still. I honestly think it was a good idea for these guys to going their own way for now…and I mean just for now. We don’t want that forever(NOPE NOT FOREVER!) Kit wants to be liked and have a real family so honestly he would probably gone along with anything. Ty is so use to having someone(his family) with him, I think it’s good for him to go to the Scholomance. Secretly(not so secretly) I absolutely LOVE Kit going to live with Jem and Tessa! I love it so much!
Helen and Aline
It was so nice to see these two FINALLY back with the family. And it made sense how it all worked. She wasn’t just welcomed back into the family by the younger siblings. They were so young when she was exiled, they obviously would feel the way they did about others. Plus they just lost Livvy. TO me, it made sense. Still, Helen tried so hard to work on gaining the relationship back with them, and I liked seeing it.
The Cohort is some bullshit. This damn whatever you want to call it…I see it as a damn cult…well I HATE THEM! As I assume we all do. And the entire time I was reading this book, I kept picture Horace Dearborn as a former president that we have(if you know, you know). I honestly didn’t expect for them to all get exiled. It’s going to make for a really interesting story line going into The Wicked Powers(which I’m soooo excited for)
I honestly don’t know what to expect from this character. At this moment in time, I’m kind of indifferent towards him. I feel like we don’t know enough about him yet for me to love him or hate him. I need to know him more. But I’m curious how will this character play out. But the fact that he’s Sebastian Morgenstern’s son…HOLY FUCK!
I feel like Dru did have more in this story than in the other stories, but we still didn’t get much. Which is fine since I heard she will be a main character in The Wicked Powers. I really like Dru and I can’t wait to see her story. I felt bad for her because every time we saw her, she was pretty much alone. Also everyone kept calling her fat because she’s curvy and for her to not eat so much. I swear it was pissing me off every time I read it, and I wanted to punch everyone one in the face. She’s fucking 13 dammit.
Some people felt like we saw too much of the TMI characters in this book, but I completely disagree. I loved seeing them every time, and it made sense why they were there. They definitely added to the story, and were not just thrown in.
OMG YESSSS! I LOVED THIS SO MUCH! YES YES YES YES YES!!!! I loved this so much and I couldn’t be happier with how it ended. Just to see where Alec started way back in City of Bones, to him at the end of Queen of Air and Darkness! It’s so beautiful!
I’m so curious about this family and the relationship that they have with the fae. They have a lot of faerie heirlooms, but they had to hand them over to the Clave when the Cold Peace was in place. They hid some heirlooms from them, but I’m curious about it. Maybe we will find out more in The Wicked Powers?
Alec Lightwood the new Consul! YESSS! I’m so happy for him. It’ll be nice to see how he leads.
Clave in Exile. I really didn’t see that coming, and I’m so curious how it’ll turn out. Especially now that they basically have to rebuild everything.
Please tell me how this entire 912 page book, and with that 5 page epilogue, it ends on a HUGE ASS CLIFFHANGER!?!?!?! WHAT??? Seriously, in just 5 pages?
I’m probably missing so much more, because this was a huge ass book and A LOT happened. What did you guys think of this book? What was your favorite part?What about your least favorite part?Who’s your favoritecharacter(s)? I would love to know!
