June TBR

Now, I normally don’t make TBRs. It’s not because I don’t like them, because I always LOVE seeing what other people want to read. I don’t normally do these because I NEVER, EVER stick to them. However, I really want to get back into reading this month. I haven’t read anything since February. I plan to set aside a few books that I REALLY want to get to, and will hopefully be able to fly through this month. I don’t plan on getting to all these this month, but that would be amazing if I did!

  1. Sweet Hope- Tillie Cole
  2. Lady Midnight- Cassandra Clare
  3. We Were Liars- E. Lockhart
  4. The Choice- Nicholas Sparks
  5. A Court of Thorns and Roses- Sarah J. Maas
  6. The 5th Wave- Rick Yancey

3 Days, 3 Quotes- Day 1

3days3quoteschallenge

I wasn’t tagged by anyone specifically, although I saw this on My Tiny Obsessions page, and I thought it would be fun to do! Especially since I’ve been gone for over a month, I thought this would be fun as a getting-back-into-blogging post! This is the 3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge. I think this may have been around for a bit, but this is my first time seeing it.

THE RULES:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  3. Nominate three new bloggers each day! (If you’re reading this, and want to do it, go right ahead! I tag you!)

My first quote is from one of my favorite books: Clockwork Princess!

Shadowhunters Reaction- The Mortal Cup

cqyue2aw8aap-cv-largeSo the premiere has come and gone. Lets talk about it!

  1. Chemistry- I enjoyed the chemistry between most of the characters. You can see this especially with Clary(Kat) and Simon(Alberto). TheDOMINIC SHERWOOD chemistry is fantastic between them! The chemistry between all the other characters is there, but it definitely needs some work in my opinion.
  2.  Acting- The acting wasn’t all that terrible. Alberto(Simon), Harry Shum Jr(Magnus), and Matthew(Alec) were all fantastic. And the others did a good job as well, however my biggest problem was Kats portrayal of Clary. It’s not that it was terrible, it just wasn’t working for me. I had a hard time believing her as Clary. Maybe that will change as the season continues. Iassah(Luke) however, was my favorite, and I loved that scene between him and Simon! It was short but fun!ALBERTO ROSENDE, KATHERINE MCNAMARA
  3.  Dialogue- This I’m on the line about. Some of the lines were fantastic, such as Simons lines! PERFECTION! His were the best and I really enjoyed them. Also Jace’s lines(for the most part) suited him. Some of them didn’t work so well. As for the rest, a lot of it seemed a bit cringe-worthy at times, and I just couldn’t help but laugh. So when it comes to the script and dialogue, I’m a bit worried about it. It can definitely get better.
  4. Costumes- I loved the costumes. I thought they were amazing, and suited the characters fine. I know people had some problems with them, especially Clary in Shadowhunter gear, but to be honest, it didn’t bother me at all.

These are some of my thoughts on the pilot episode. Did you watch? What did you enjoy? What did you dislike?

Reaction- Shadowhunters Character Posters

So the character posters have been released for Shadowhunters and overall I think they’re great! I love how the characters look themselves, especially Magnus and Isabelle. They book look so fierce! However, the background feels a bit off to me. It just doesn’t seem like it fits(in my opinion). Although I will admit, the more I look at them the more the background is growing on me. What do you think?

Reaction- Shadowhunters 7 Minute Sneak Peek

So we got the first 7 minutes of the pilot episode of Shadowhunters! I was reading some comments and quite a few people aren’t impressed with this. I disagree with them! I thought this was a pretty good beginning for the show! Although it did feel rushed, but I felt that way when I read the first book, I felt that way during the movie, so I wasn’t expecting anything different.

I will say one of the reasons why I’m happy with this is because my expectations aren’t set that high. I am excited for the show, but I don’t expect something that will blow my mind. Especially since this is the pilot episode. I NEVER go into pilot episodes expecting something great. It takes time for a show to find itself! I think this will be a fun series, and I definitely think it will get better as the series go on.

From these 7 minutes, I can say that I love the vibe of the club. It looked fantastic. OfThumbs up course Magnus is great, and I loved that we got to see him so early on! I think the costumes for the characters were on point, and worked well for them. I’m not so sure how I feel about Clary or Jace yet. The whole seemed a bit forced(I guess you could say) to me. But we’ll see how it goes when the show airs! Overall, I’m pretty excited for this show and can’t wait for it to air!

Cover Reaction- Lady Midnight

Lady-Midnight-cover-GalleyCatThe cover for Lady Midnight  has been revealed and all I can say is….I LOVE IT!!!

The underwater theme makes it have a darker feel to it, which I love. The colors also add to that! I love how it seems as though she fell into the water, and you can see the sword falling from her hands. From this cover, I can only assume the book is going to be  amazing!
