Teaser Trailer || Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Percy Jackson and the Olympians teaser trailer released a couple of weeks ago, and even though I’m a bit late with it(is anyone surprised?), I wanted to share it! 

I was honestly surprised that we got a teaser so soon. They’re still currently filming so I really thought we would only get a very short glimpse or maybe some stills. But NO! We got a whole 50 second plus teaser!!! WHAT??? Just from this teaser, I’m already SO EXCITED for this show. I have high expectations, which may or may not be a good thing. Either way I’m very excited for a full trailer to be released! 

Are you excited for the show? What did you think of the teaser?

“Look, I didn’t want to be a half-blood.”

Your Favorite Book(s)?

So this is a very short and simple post, but I’m genuinely curious what your all time favorite book and/or books are? Because I know we don’t just have one! I was randomly staring at my shelves and was thinking which would I choose as my all time favorite stand alone and series? Then it got me thinking what would other people choose as their favorites?

So what would say is your favorite standalone? Series?

What about romance? Mystery? Thriller? Fantasy? Manga? and so on? Just share your favorite book(s)

I think it would be fun to share and we can find new books to add to our ever growing TBR pile!

My First ITZY Song!

I FINALLY decided to get into ITZY and WANNABE is the first song from them that I listened to and I think it was a great choice! Definitely a good one to get into! Now it’s time for me to get sucked down into the ITZY rabbit hole! Let me know what is your favorite ITZY song, or the very first song you listened to?

Goal number 1. Get familiarized with who is who!

Goal number 2. Listen to and watch all the videos!

See you on the other side!

Sisyphus: The Myth Thoughts

I’m hear to talk about the drama Sisyphus: The Myth. (***This post may contain SPOILERS***)

First thing, I absolutely loved this drama. From the characters, relationships, story, I really loved it all.

Sisyphus: The Myth is about a war that breaks out leaving it completely destroyed. We follow our main character Seo Hae as she travels from 2035 back to 2020 to prevent the war. We follow the timeline of both the post war as well as present time.

The characters and the relationships were really great in my opinion. I found myself loving not only the main characters but most of the side characters as well, both good and bad. I loved how the villains were portrayed in this story, especially Sigma.

Seo Hae, played by Park Shin Hye, really surprised me with this character. And I think she portrayed her so well. She was such a badass character, and I absolutely loved seeing it! I loved seeing her time in both the present and the future and it was SO NICE to see a woman as the protector this time! The relationships that she built with people was fun to watch, but the relationship between her and her father was absolutely amazing. I loved seeing how that father-daughter relationship was portrayed in both the past, present, and future.

Tae Sul, played by Cho Seung Woo, was such a fun character to see played out on screen. I think Cho Seung Woo was a great choice for this character. He plays a brilliant CEO engineer who also happens to be struggling with the loss of his brother. He hallucinates his brother quite often, so we see him taking pills to stop it.

Kim Byung Chul who plays Sigma was absolutely amazing. I thought he was such a great villain, and every time he appeared I was wondering what he was going to do next. What he had planned. And the dynamic between him and Tae Sul was absolutely entertaining to watch. And adding Seo Hae in the mix made it better.

The crew of Asia Mart was also a lot of fun to watch. They become important parts to the story and with our main characters.

I was a big fan of the relationship between Tae Sul and Seo Hae. Personally I loved seeing them together and this relationship develop. And I absolutely loved seeing Seo Hae as the protector in this story.

This entire drama is very action filled, but we also get quite a bit of emotional moments between a lot of the characters. I was rooting for our leads to save the world and stop the war. I wanted to see it happen even though about halfway through I finally realized what the title meant.

I think why I loved this drama so much is because I didn’t take it that seriously. This deals with time travel, and obviously time travel is a very difficult plot to do well. So with movies and/or shows that do it I don’t take them all that seriously and am pretty lenient with how it’s portrayed. You have to be open to it, so because I was more open to what they were doing with this plot, I think I was able to enjoy it so much more.

I won’t talk about the ending here because I have an entire post dedicated to my thoughts on the ending of this drama. People have a lot of theories, and I share mine. If you would like to read that I’ll link it here—> Sisyphus: The Myth ENDING

Overall I really loved this drama. I know it has a lot of mix thoughts, and I would love to hear yours.

Currently Watching

I’m taking a short, but necessary break from reading. I kind of burnt myself out in February. So I decided to watch a couple of shows.

The Untamed

I don’t watch many C-Dramas, but I’ve heard such good things about this particular drama so I decided to FINALLY check it out. When I’m writing this(I’m not sure if I will post this today or days from now), I’m currently about 30 episodes into this drama and I’m loving it so much! I can’t believe it it has taken me this long to watch this! This drama is my priority for the upcoming days!

The Walking Dead

This is one of my favorite shows and it came back last week so I have to watch the most recent episode. I’m excited to see the characters again, and see what happens.

Superman & Lois

This is one that I haven’t started yet, but it premiered at the end of February and I’m excited to start watching this show. I don’t watch many superhero shows anymore. I use to watch them all, but kind of fell off of it. But I’m excited to check out this show!

Heartstopper VOL 1

Charlie, a highly-strung, openly gay over-thinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, meet at a British all-boys grammar school. Friendship blooms quickly, but could there be something more…?

Oh my God this book! What can I say? I can honestly say I had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading this book. It’s the most heartwarming, sweetest book.

Hearstopper deals with friendship, romance, acceptance, coming out, and more. This story follows the relationship between Nick and Charlie.(I’ve heard these characters are mentioned in other books by Alice Oseman, but this was my first read of hers.) We follow the meeting, friendship, and growing feelings between the two of them.

You will end up flying through this story. Not just because it is a comic/graphic novel, but because you will be so invested in this story and these characters.

Also how can I not mention NELLIE! Oh my God, NELLIE!(Nicks dog) She’s the absolute best! We love her!

I also want to add that Alice Osemans book deal with serious issues, and I found a list of the trigger warnings on her website. So I would like to list them here for any of you who are intesrested in checking this story out. These are taken from her website! https://www.aliceoseman.com/content-warnings

Heartstopper VOL 1 Trigger Warnings:

  • Emotionally abusive relationship
  • Non- consensual kiss
  • past homophobia/slurs
  • past bullying

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”
