About the ARC ReadAThon An arc readathon is exactly what I need since I did the mistake to go onto NetGalley even though I had a few arcs. Now it’s time to get through all of them! (or at least a few…) This readathon is hosted by Aimal at Bookshelves & Paperbacks and goes on throughout April. The readathon is meant to cause no stress, just … Continue reading April 2017 TBR & ARC ReadAThon
Ending this week with the first episode of a two-parter. An episode that has stuck to my memory even from the first time I saw it.
This is the most hilarious episode in maybe the whole series! At least one of the most memorable ones. Sarah Parish, such a beautiful woman, did an amazing job playing Lady Catrina. The way she can switch between being a troll and a lady in a moment. Beautiful. Hilarious.
Jaeth’s Eye by K.S. Villoso My rating: 4 of 5 stars I got this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I couldn’t decide whether to give this 3 or 4 stars, so I went with 3,5 which rounds up to four. The way this story was told felt quite different. There are multiple perspectives, tons of characters and names that feel … Continue reading Jaeth’s Eye
The Autumn Republic by Brian McClellan My rating: 5 of 5 stars The conclusion to The Powder Mage Trilogy, oh what an ending. I am questioning how I will talk about this without spoilers, but I’ll do it! The first book started with the beheading of the king, and the struggle to create a democracy out of the kingdom’s ruins. Easier said than done. The second … Continue reading The Autumn Republic
And we continue with the amazing season 2 of Merlin. Somehow it has developed so much from the first to the second season, I cannot understand. But I love it!
Btw, still, if someone wants to join me with this I would be very happy for someone to share these reviews with^^ Click here for the introduction to see how this was meant to work out.
This episode hit me right in the feels! Oh…oh…Lancelot! That beautiful soul and kindhearted person. He’s exactly what a knight should be. But this episode makes my heart bleed. But well, I shouldn’t start with the end of the episode. Let’s start from the beginning.
Fantasy. My one true love.
If you have followed my blog for a while, or just scrolled through it, you should know that I love fantasy. It is the genre that I always go for. Sometimes I branch out, but I’m soon to return. I think a lot of people have that relationship with one (or a few) genres. But how come I love fantasy so much?
I want and saw the long awaited Beauty and the Beast this last Friday, and oh what a beautiful film it was! I haven’t seen the 1991 animated movie more than once, and that’s at least 10 years ago, so it was like going into this just knowing the big story.
Everyone, probably, knows the story. If not, skip this paragraph since it contains spoilers. A girl taking her father’s place as a prisoner if the Beast’s castle. However, she manages to melt the Beast’s icy surface through friendliness. The village then attacks the castle and the Beast, but Belle manages to save the beast and the spell is broken.
The second season of Merlin really shows what this show has to offer. Now the story really gets air under its wings and it will only get better from here.
This is such a beautiful episode. Again, this season was off to a shaky start with the first episode, but after that one they started doing things right. Morgana’s magic is getting stronger, and her fears are making it react. To be Uther’s ward is not a good thing when magic runs through your veins.
I got tagged for this one for the second time, but it’s Harry Potter themed so who am I to say no? Thank you Sophie (Blame it on Chocolate) for tagging me^^ I promise I won’t use the same books as last time I did this. Btw, if I have a review for the book click on its name to read it.
A book you found interesting but would like to rewrite
At Water’s Edge by S. McPherson. This book could have been really good, but the writing was lacking. I had high hopes for it but sadly, no. Still, the concept is good.
A first book in a series that got you hooked
During the start of this year I have really enjoyed listening to audiobooks. I wanted something for my bus travels, so I looked through my Goodreads tbr shelf and found a book that sounded interesting – Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan. Then I found it as an audiobook and started. I was hooked. I am now a third through the final book in the trilogy and love … Continue reading 10 Things to Do Whilst Listening to AudioBooks
