The Joy of Christmas Tag

I wasn’t tagged but saw this over on BookSayerReads and fell for it. I haven’t been tagged for anything Christmas related so now I’m taking stuff into my own hands. Let’s begin!


Anticipation

The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating?

None of them have a cover yet, but Doors of Stone by Patrick Rothfuss (not even an expected publication date yet) and the sixth book in Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas are definitely my most anticipated reads.

Christmas Songs/Carols

What book or author can you not help but sing its praises?

My two all time favourite authors are J.K. Rowling and Patrick Rothfuss. They are worth all the praise possible! Incredible imagination and use of words.

Gingerbread Houses

What book or series has wonderful world building?

Merlin Watch Along: S01E08 – The Beginning of the End

Christmas is upon us but we still have time for an episode of Merlin. So Merry Christmas to all of you and let’s enjoy one of the best episodes of Merlin!


Cassiopeia | Princess

A perfect name for a perfect episode. If you know anything about the Arthurian Legends this episode definitely will put you on the edge of your seat. And if you do not know anything, like I did when I saw it the first time, remember the boy. It is the beginning of the end.

I love this episode. It is one of my favorites in the season for sure. In this episode, the spotlight shifts to Morgana’s character and we truly see just who she is. We also see Mordred for the first (and not the last) time. If you know Arthurian legend, you would understand how truly important he is.

Morgana’s relationship with Mordred is beautiful. This is the first time she really takes a stand against Uther and you really see her as the strong and beautiful character she is.

Morgana and Mordred

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – The Original Screenplay

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling My rating: 5 of 5 stars The best birthday gift ever! (I turned 22 yesterday.) This book was incredible. It was like watching the movie once more. The voices, the surroundings, the feelings. It was beautiful. The movie was probably the best movie I’ve seen all year, and this book is … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – The Original Screenplay

Bookish Bingo – Winter Edition

We’re already halfway through December, but I am hopping on this train – The Bookish Bingo Winter Edition created by PrettyDeadlyReviews. This is my first time participating in anything like this. I have been thinking about it for so long, but the categories have always felt so far off what I have planned to read. This one however, seems perfect! I’ve already read The Novice by Taran … Continue reading Bookish Bingo – Winter Edition

Merlin Watch Along: S01E07 – The Gates of Avalon

The review of this episode was first posted on Ampersand Princess’ blog, which does not exist anymore. However, here is my part of the review:


Cassiopeia

I love this episode! It definitely is one of the better ones. Arthur’s put under a love spell and it takes way too long for anyone to realise. But the best part is Morgana.

If you know anything about the Arthurian Legends you know Morgana is, well, she plays a huge role. And this episode is finally giving her the screen time she deserves and put the foundation for what will be.
