TV Review:Shadowhunters: Moo Shu to Go(1.05)

                                    Shadowhunters: Moo Shu to Go(1.05)Review
  • I liked that Clary went to tell Jace about how she saw Valentine with her mother through her necklace because it shows that she knows that she needs to get advice from someone who knows more about how this world than she does.
  • I liked that it was explained that the necklace is a portal shard and that's why Clary can see certain people at certain times and I like that Alec points out that it is a door of sorts and that it could be dangerous for Clary to have it while Valentine knows that he can get to her through it.
  • I can't blame Clary for not paying attention to any detail but the fact that Valentine has her mother because that's something that must be terrifying to have confirmed but at the same time I can't blame Alec for trying to get information from her about Valentine's location because that is what is going to help them find Valentine and stop him.
  • I liked that when Alec was telling Clary that emotions were nothing but a distraction that she asked him how well ignoring all his emotions been working out for him because I agree with Clary's way of thinking that emotions are an important part of being a person and ignoring them always turns out badly in the long run.
  • I'm glad that Alec took the portal shard because he's right in thinking that Valentine would probably use the connection to try to manipulate Clary to come to him and then she would ended up captured herself so it's probably for the best that Clary and Jace don't try to out manipulate Valentine because they would probably fail.
  • I liked that Alec pointed out to Clary that going up against Valentine is a lot different than going up against the vampires and their going to need a lot more shadowhunters than four if they want to win against him and his followers.
  • I liked that Izzy went to comfort Clary after she heard about what happened with the portal shard and I liked that even though she was being there for Clary she also told Clary that Alec was right to take it away because it is something that can be very dangerous for her to use. I also liked that when Clary said that she was willing to go off on her own and use it that Izzy pointed out that she's not on her own anymore.
  • I liked how Clary told Izzy about her mom and how close they were and I liked that Clary describes her mom as a friend as well and the person that she loves most in the world.
  • I felt bad for Izzy  when her mom returned and one of the first things she said to her was her looking down on her for how she was dressed and the rest of what she was saying was all business.
  • I like that Clary can't believe that Izzy's mom would be so cold to her and I felt so bad for Izzy when her mom hugged Jace when she didn't hug Izzy.
  • I hate how Maryse so clearly prefers Jace over Izzy and Alec just because he's one the best fighters.
  • I liked that both Izzy and Jace asked where Max was because it shows how much they care about their younger brother.
  • I felt for Izzy when Maryse both looked down on Izzy for having seelie friends and then tried to blame her for the entire seelie population refusing to talk to the Clave anymore, I did like that Jace did point out how unfair Maryse was being to Izzy.
  • I hated how Maryse acted like Alec requesting to go with Izzy when she met with Melrion rather than look after Clary was something extremely selfish of him to ask and how she acted like he was a spoiled child when he's so clearly has already given up so much to please her and the Clave.
  • I liked that Clary did point out to Maryse that the reason that she has caused so many problems is because she's literally just found out that she was a shadowhunter a few days ago so she has no idea what is and isn't okay in there eyes.
  • I feel bad for Alec that all those unapproved missions that Jace, Izzy and Clary pretty much forced him into going on are something that he will end up being punished for despite the fact that he told them not to go on those missions and they just went on them anyways.
  • I found it interesting that the demonic murders are of mundanes with the sight but I'm disappointed because I'm pretty sure that this plot didn't really go anywhere.
  • I was honestly so surprised when I learned that Alec is actually the acting head of the institute because that means that he is the authority that everyone in the institute answers and Jace and Izzy just kept breaking laws in front of him and trying to convince him to break it too, that's crazy that's like asking your cop friend to be your get away drive when you rob a bank.
  • I liked that when Alec tried to aploguise for what happened with the demon that Jace told him that everything is okay between them and that he loves Alec to although he makes it clear that he loves Alec as a brother, I do like that Jace makes sure that Alec knows he's not mad at him and that he loves him.
  • I'm glad that Raphael found Simon outside of the vampire's hotel and that he made Simon leave before Simon could get hurt again.
  • I liked that Clary tells Alec that she thinks his mom was too hard on him although Alec disagrees because he's used to being treated that way by his mother.
  • I liked that Alec does his best to train Clary even though he doesn't like her much he does still try to make sure that she learns how to be a shadowhunter and I like that he kept giving her advice about how to improve her fighting skills.
  • I think that it's a bit sad how Alec thinks that every time that he screws up he should be punished or if someone under him screws up because he believes that being a leader means to accept punishment on the behalf of others.
  • I liked that when Clary told Alec about the box that her mother has that could lead them to finding something that could help them find Valentine that Alec seems somewhat interested in finding it but he doesn't want to go look for it without the Clave's approval.
  • I liked that Magnus called and asked Alec out on a date and I liked that Alec accepted right away despite not wanting anyone to know about his sexuality.
  • I get why Clary left while Alec was distracted but I don't think she understands that this will only cause more problems for Alec later on since he was suppose to keep her inside the institute.
  • I like that when Alec finds Clary while her phone is ringing he asks her what the point of an invisibility rune is when she doesn't silence her phone.
  • I like that Simon finds it alarming when Clary tells him that she killed a demon since they've last seen each other.
  • I liked that when Clary tells Simon that she's going back to her old apartment that Simon tells her that it's too dangerous to go back there and I liked that when it became clear to him that Clary was going to go no matter what he said that he insisted that he goes with her.
  • I liked that Clary confronted Alec about being in love with Jace and I like that she tried to convince Alec to admit it because she honestly believes that he would feel better if he did but Alec of course doesn't.
  • I liked that when Clary and Simon first meet up that they hug each other right away because they're so relieved to see that the other is okay.
  • I find it a bit odd that Clary and Alec both noticed that things are abnormal with Simon with him being able to jump over walls, see runes and being able to break down a door and yet neither of them mention or seriously think about what this could mean for Simon.
  • I like that Clary and Simon are all happily nostalgic about climbing the fire escape and I like that Alec just can't understand why this would bring them excitement.
  • I find it cute that Clary and Simon were engaged when they were eight years old those two are just the cutest childhood best friends.
  • I felt bad for Clary when she saw her old home burned down and realized that she could never go back to it.
  • I like that Alec points out that the reason why there's no trace of Clary in her old home is because her mother was trying to protect her and that since she's still alive it seems that it worked.
  • I like that Simon was able to find the box that Clary's mother kept secret from her but sadly the objects in the box are something that doesn't look all that helpful.
  • I liked that when it was clear that a threat was outside that Alec told both Clary and Simon to wait inside for him while he went outside to take care of it so that they would be safe from the threat although sadly that noise form outside was a distraction for when the werewolves could take Clary and Simon.
  • I like that the reason that seelies aren't talking to the clave is because their scouts were killed by Valentine after they were sent on a mission by the clave and now they don't think that clave has their best interest at heart so they want nothing to do with it.
  • I dislike that Jace blames Alec for Clary sneaking out of the institute and I like that Izzy points out that it makes no sense to blame Alec for something that Clary did.
  • I dislike how Jace tells Alec that maybe his mom was right that his best isn't good enough but I liked that Izzy was so furious with him when he said that and tried to get him to stop right away.
  • I really dislike how angry Jace is at Alec for loosing Clary when it isn't his fault that she was taken but I like that Alec points out that he didn't do anything that Jace hasn't done before because it's true yet Jace still refuses to see reason.
  • I liked that when Simon said that he couldn't believe that he was kidnapped again that Clary told him that she doesn't want to be self centered but she thinks that they are after her.
  • I hate how the werewolves are threatening to kill Simon if Clary doesn't tell them were the cup is when she doesn't know where the cup is, honestly this whole cup situation is so frustrating.
  • I liked that Simon was able to find a phone and call Jace and he was able to tell them were he was and I liked that while looking at the menu that Simon mentions that the restaurant has very inexpensive cocktails.
  • I liked that when Jace told Simon to light a fire that Simon told him that never works and asks if he's ever seen an action movie although Simon does end up starting a fire.
  • I found it a bit funny that when Clary tried to use an unlock rune that she accidently started a fire instead.
  • I liked that when Clary tried to threaten Luke with her stele that he asks her if she knows that she can't do spells with that and then picks her up while telling her that she still needs more training and that he's trying to protect her.
  • I liked that Izzy rescues Sijmon and tells him that she's getting sick of rescuing him while having a smile on her face and Simon also with a smile on his face tells her isn't.
  • I like that after Luke saves Clary from the alpha of the pack that she now knows that she can trust him and I like that since Luke is the new alpha that means that the werewolves are no longer a threat to them.
  • I liked that when Luke started to pass out because of his wounds that both Clary and Simon were at his side trying to help him up.
  • I like that Clary tells Luke that she never should have doubted him and I liked that Luke then tells her that they never should have lied to her.
  • I find it sad that when Izzy asks Alec if things are okay with him and Jace that he has tell her that he doesn't know.

TV Review: The 100: Terms and Conditions(3.08)

                                   The 100: Terms and Conditions(3.08)Review
  • I liked that when the grounders established their blockade and then pretty much demanded that they give up Pike so that blood can have blood that Bellamy mentions that he seen this before referring to what happened with Finn last season.
  • I can't blame Bellamy for choosing to protect Pike who is someone who cares about the well being of the ark's people who are Bellamy's people over giving the grounders what they want so that they can a short lived peace because honestly the grounders have been killing the ark's people since they got to earth so he has no reason to believe they will ever stop.
  • I liked that Pike knows that they can't take on the grounders until they sort out the problems they have with their own people although I don't think that Pike is doing the right things for his people I like that he at least knows they have to be on the same side.
  • I like that Monty finds the idea of spying on their own people to be something that he doesn't want to do.
  • I like that Kane refuses to just attack Pike and give him over to the grounders because that would be considered murder and treason and I like that Miller asks if maybe they need to do those things in order to save their people.
  • I dislike that Jaha has the idea to use Jasper's desperation to find a way to escape his pain in order to get him access to more chips that are the key to the city of light.
  • I liked that Kane urges Pike to choose the peaceful option rather than to start a war that he knows they can't win but I also like that Pike brings up that they sacrificed Finn in order to appease the grounders before and that still didn't prevent them from turning on them later on.
  • I liked that Jasper told Raven that he thinks the plan to break into Pike's office for the chips is a bad one but that he still wants to be in on it.
  • I liked that when Pike admitted that they didn't have the fire power to take on the grounders and then started talking about using landmines that Bellamy seems to be unsure of the plan because in the long term it sounds like they can't win the war against the grounders so should they even be attacking them in the first place.
  • While I do think that Kane was doing the right thing by trying to prevent the landmines from being planted by using Sinclair but I don't think Bellamy is wrong for arresting Sinclair since it is treason to interfere with Pike's order since he's chancellor.
  • I liked that Bellamy was frightened for a moment that Pike would kill Sinclair for being a traitor like they would have if they were on the ark.
  • I like that Jasper finds it odd that Raven keeps talking to herself when she talks to ALI.
  • I liked how Jasper told Raven about how he and Monty would spend their time looking out the window on the ark and playing a planet would you rather game, I just liked hearing about how their life was like while they lived on the ark.
  • I like that Monty is questioning what makes something right and I find it worrying that his mom believes because of Pike that anything that keeps you alive is the right thing to do because that isn't really true because sometimes especially on this show you have to do something truly awful to survive but that doesn't make it right.
  • I liked that it turned out that the real mission that Kane had for Sinclair was that he get arrested so that he could give a message to Lincoln from Kane.
  • I can see why both Bellamy and Kane choose the sides they do with Bellamy I understand why he sees the grounders as threats because they have always have been in the past and him wanting to just follow the led of Pike who is the chancellor is something that makes sense since Bellamy has become very unsure of what the right thing to do was after the grounders destroyed mount weather. Kane is of course right about Pike being a threat to their people because he wants to lead their people into a war in which they can't win because he can't see grounders as anything but an enemy.
  • I like that both Bellamy and Kane try to convince the other to join their side because they believe that their side is the right one and they believe that each other is a good person who should be fighting on their side.
  • I like that Bryan has noticed that Miller isn't around as much and that he is keeping some kind of secrets from him. I like that that Bryan knows that Miller has problems with the way Pike runs things.
  • I liked that Bryan questioned whether it was right to spy on someone they love and I liked that Bellamy said it was as long as it was to protect them because this is something that we saw that Bellamy did at the beginning of the series so seeing that he's using the same justification now makes a lot of sense.
  • I like that Jasper starts to notice that Raven doesn't remember Finn dying and I like that he asks if in the city of light that means you only remember the good things about the one that you lost and I like that this got Raven to realize that she doesn't remember anything about Finn at all and I liked that this made her realize that helping ALI is the wrong thing to do.
  • I like that that when Lincoln attacked Sinclair as part of their plan that Bellamy sounded shocked when he shouted Lincoln's name because that action is very out of character for Lincoln.
  • I kind of liked that Kane did what he was determined not to do by kidnapping Pike so that he could hand him over to the grounders and had a riot start as a distraction so that he could get away with it, I like that he did what he said he didn't want to do with committing treason and starting a fight within their own ranks which makes it look like Kane has lost his way in the eyes of someone like Bellamy.
  • I'm a bit  disappointed that Monty was able to alert Bellamy of Kane's plan before he was able to hand Pike over but I understand that they were both doing their jobs and what they thought was best for their people.
  • I find it a bit scary that ALI is upset that she was able to completely control Raven but I find it even scarier that Jaha is trying to find a way to make it so ALI doesn't need a person's consent to get them to do what she wants them to.
  • I liked that Kane gave a speech about how the law has to change to fit the future and how things aren't the same as they were in the past as a final way to get through to Bellamy that what Pike is doing isn't the best thing for their people.
  • I was sad that Kane was sentenced to death but I can't really blame Pike for giving that order after what Kane did.
  • I like that Bellamy is visibly upset when Kane is sentenced to die and I like that he questions Pike about how they are now killing their own people.
  • I like that after Bellamy told Monty about what happened to Kane that he asked about what will happen with Miller and Harper.
  • I like that when Monty's mom tells them that they did the right thing today that both Monty and Bellamy didn't look like they agreed with her.
  • I like that when Monty's mom asked if they could identify who was working with Kane that Bellamy answered no right away showing that he isn't truly on Pike's side anymore.
  • I liked that when Monty asks if choosing what's best for your people isn't very hard that Bellamy tells her that he does that everyday.

Anime Review: Clannad: On the Hillside Where the Cherry Blossoms Flutter(1.01)

           Clannad: On the Hillside Where the Cherry Blossoms Flutter(1.01)Review
This episode is about how a delinquent student Tomoya Okazaki ends up having a chance encounter with a shy girl named Nagisa Furukawa who he later learns had to repeat her final year of school because she was out of school for quite awhile the year before. Nagisa isn't having much luck with making new friends do to her shy nature but she does mention that she always wanted to join the drama club and Tomoya ends up convincing her to join only for her to discover that the drama club no longer exist since they're weren't enough member but Tomoya tells her not to give up on it and promises to help her get it going again.

The episode also spent a lot of time introducing us to characters such as Ryou Fujibayashi the timid class representative and her protective sister Kyou. Another character we meet is Tomoyo Sakagami who is a new transfer student who is great at fighting which is something that surprises quite a few people since she's a beautiful girl but also makes her popular with her fellow students. There is also an introduction of Tomoya's friend that is always getting into trouble and of Nagisa's parents who own a bakery, her mother is very sweet but a bit too sensitive while her father is rather brash and quite protective of his wife and daughter.

Overall I really enjoyed this episode I thought this was fairly good introduction to all the characters and I thought that the episode did a good job at showing us where all the characters are right now so that we can see how much they grow later on. I really like how Tomoya and Nagisa's characters contrast with each other which makes their interactions interesting to watch. Please tell me your thoughts on this episode in the comment section below.

TV Review: How to Get Away with Murder: Is Someone Really Dead?(3.06)

                 How to Get Away with Murder: Is Someone Really Dead?(3.06)Review
  • I liked that in the flash forward that Michaela is obviously freaking out about what happened at Annalise's house and I liked that when her mother tries to be of help that Michaela tells her that she can't help and that she's been through much worse. I also find it interesting that Michaela tells her mother not to steal anything.
  • I like that it turns out that Bonnie went to meet with Frank so that she could record him confessing to the crime but I was that Annalise says that they can't use this as evidence.
  • I liked that while Laurel is mad at Annalise for hiring a hit man to go after Frank that Wes doesn't think it's that bad of idea considering her tried to frame him for murder which ended up making Bonnie upset and that led to Annalise telling her not to go after him.
  • I'm worried because the police showed up at Wes's apartment which means that they now consider him a suspect.
  • I felt bad for Maggie when she just found the police waiting outside of Wes's apartment in order to question him about a shooting since she has no idea about any of this.
  • I like that Wes wants to just talk to the police rather than hid out at Annalise's house like she wants him to.
  • I like that Wes called Maggie and told her about how he witnessed shooting so that she wouldn't have to wonder what is going on with the police.
  • I like that there is a lot of rules that comes with Annalise getting her license back because that makes things a bit more difficult for her.
  • I think it's unfair of Bonnie to blame Wes for everything going wrong around Annalise's life since the beginning of the series because there are a lot of people to blame and Wes is hardly the only one that has caused problems.
  • The case of the week deals with an army woman who stabbed a guy in the neck after he was harassing her and her girlfriend. I was surprised when Annalise chose Drake the guy who made the fliers as her first chair although it does make sense because he suggested using PTSD as the defense which makes the most sense in this case.
  • I liked that Connor, Michaela and Asher were informed about Wes witnessing his father being shot after they noticed that Wes was missing from class and the police were looking for him.
  • I liked how Asher told Wes that he was sorry about his dad dying after he found out.
  • I liked how Annalise told everyone not to worry because she has protected them all even when she hated them.
  • I like that Bonnie keeps trying to get Annalise to take out all her angry at her and be done with it so that they could move on from it.
  • I liked that Michaela and Connor told Laurel that she couldn't sit with them because she keeps, keeping secrets from the rest of them.
  • I liked how Annalise decided to take over questioning the victim after the  prosecutor showed up and I liked that Drake was upset with that since he spent so much time prepping for it.
  • I was frustrated that the judge didn't seem to let Annalise ask any questions of the victim because of her recent suspension.
  • I found it interesting that the defendant wasn't traumatized by something that happened to her but rather something that she has read that happened to others in the military.
  • I can't blame Connor for blaming Wes for everything going to Hell in his life because unlike with Annalise he's actually right since Connor was fine before he had to be part of covering up murder and everything that followed was because of that. I know that when Connor says he'll kill Wes if he mentions his name to the police that he's lying because Connor can't handle killing someone.
  • I understand why Connor is upset by Oliver going on dates when he broke up with him because he wanted to be alone but I also understand that Oliver broke up with Connor because he wasn't sure if their relationship was good for them anymore.
  • I liked that Annalise made it seem like she just found out after her client perjured herself that she was lying so that the case would become a mistrial and get a plea deal from the DA.
  • I felt bad for Wes when he broke up with Maggie because he believes that he is too much for her to handle.
  • I was happy for Oliver that his date actually did go well because he deserves to be happy.
  • I understand why Asher is upset that Michaela doesn't consider him her boyfriend but I agree with Michaela that her not thinking of him as her boyfriend is because they never agreed to be in a relationship.
  • I liked that Asher told Michaela that he thinks of her as his family and I like that after Michaela tells him that she never had a family that he tells he wants to be there for her and support her.
  • I liked that Wes destroyed Frank's confession because he believes that Laurel wants him to protected too.
  • I like that Wes and Laurel hooked up with each other because I like their relationship with each other and I was also interested in seeing what it would be like if they add romance to it.
  • I liked that the show made us think that Wes turned himself in but it was actually his biological father's legitimate son that Frank framed that was arrested instead.
  • I find it interesting that in the flash forward that Asher mentions that Annalise had called everyone to come over to her house.

TV Review: Witch's Romance

                                                       Witch's Romance Review
Witch's Romance is about Ban Ji-yeon a 39 year old investigative reporter who has been dedicated to her job above all else since her ex left her at the alter six years ago which has made her become cold, bitter and driven which as led to her co-workers calling her a witch behind her back. By chance Ji-yeon ends up crossing paths with Yoon Dong-ha a 25 year old who works as a part timer doing basically any job someone needs done, he is kindhearted, earnest and hardworking the two clash right away but they end up running into each other again and again. Eventually Dong-ha is hired to work as Ji-yeon's assistant whether she wants him to or not and this of course leads to the two working day and night together which leads to them bonding with each other and learning that they make a pretty good team.

After getting to know each other and becoming what one could considering friends it becomes clear that Ji-yeon and Dong-ha feels something more than friendship for each other but with them both still recovering from the end of their last relationships both of them hesitate to act on their feelings for each other. Dong-ha does end up gaining the courage to confess his feelings for Ji-yeon right before her ex shows up out of the blue after six years of not contacting her acting as if they're still in a relationship and offering no explanation as to why he left and never contacted her. Ji-yeon's ex showing up throws her for a loop which makes her briefly take a step forward rather than backwards in her life but in the end everything works out in the way that it should.

Overall this drama is really good, I found the dynamic between our leads to be just so sweet and moving and I just loved that they both had strong personalities that played off of each other so well and I loved that they felt like they could just be themselves around each other and that they made each other so completely happy. Another thing I really liked about this drama was that it was populated with side characters that had their own little side plots which you cared about but they never over took the main storyline. The one thing I didn't like this drama was the ex coming back and how long it took to get rid of him considering how unlikable he was from beginning to end but other than this was a great drama. Please tell me your thoughts about this drama in the comment section below.

TV Review: The 100: Thirteen(3.07)

                                               The 100: Thirteen(3.07)Review
  • I like that Murphy tells Titus what he knows about the City of Light key that he got from Jaha that is the same symbol as the Commander uses, I like how Murphy tells him this in the most sarcastic way and that Titus didn't really get any of it.
  • I found it sad to see that ninety-seven years ago the people watch the end of the world from where they were in space completely helpless to stop it from happening.
  • I like that Lexa decided to block the people from ark from leaving their land until they sort out their leadership problems but it seems that rest of her don't like this plan and are unhappy with her decision.
  • I find it sad that it seems like the thirteenth station didn't join with the rest of the ark because the creator didn't want to give up on her programing.
  • I like that Octavia is upset with Clarke after she defends Lexa after she gives a kill order to all ark people who are outside of their lands.
  • I like that Lexa is rejecting the teaching of love is weakness and that being commander means being alone because even though I don't like Clarke and Lexa together I'm always happy to see people learn that emotions don't have to be a weakness.
  • I liked that Murphy tried to kill Titus so that he could escape from where he was being held with his life.
  • I liked that when Murphy was explaining to Titus about what happened with station Thirteen that Titus said that their faiths have nothing to do with each other that Murphy tells him that he has no faith before he gives him a bit of history lesson that Titus mostly ignores.
  • I think it's sad that other people on station thirteen died because she wouldn't give up on her program and that she escape the ship and went down to earth.
  • I like that Octavia tells Clarke that she can't do more for her people here than she could by actually being with her people because it's true Clarke can't truly know what's going on with her people when she's so far away from them.
  • I really don't like or understand why Clarke decided that she wanted to be with Lexa romantically when really not enough time has past for Clarke to be able to move past how Lexa made her commit genocide at Mount Weather and since Clarke is still suffering from guilt over the incident last episode I don't think that she's over it in anyway so a relationship with Lexa makes no sense.
  • I found it a bit funny when Clarke referred to Murphy as her friend when they were never even close to being friends.
  • I honestly found it so random and poorly written that Lexa died because Titus went crazy with a gun and tried to kill Clarke and Lexa happened to walk in the room, I completely understand why people were so upset with this death because it was so poorly done and did nothing to honor her character.
  • I like that Indra decided to join Octavia when it comes to fighting Pike.
  • I dislike that the show is somewhat implying that Lexa giving into love is what got her killed in the end because that's untrue and a terrible lesson to send out to people.
  • I was a bit surprised to learn that a chip with all the past commanders memories is passed down from the lady that invented the program almost a hundred years ago.
  • I like that Clarke and Murphy are both a bit frightened by the AI that came out of Lexa's neck that the grounders call the commanders spirit.

Book Review: The Raven Cycle : Blue Lily, Lily Blue

                                                  Blue Lily, Lily Blue Review
This book is the third The Raven Cycle series and in this book the main focus is on the fact that there are three sleeping people one that they should wake, one that they shouldn't and one that is in between. In between looking for Glendower and the other sleepers Blue also has to deal with the fact that her mother has disappeared after she left a note that said that she was going off to look for Blue's father and Blue finds herself both very worried for her mother and angry at her for leaving without even telling her where she was going. Another problem that has be dealt with in this book is that Greenmantle the employer of Mr. Gray is in town and threatening to cause problems and this leads Ronan into enlisting Adam to help him find something on Greenmantle in order to chase him out of town. There is also the problem of Noah becoming less human than he once was because of how long he's been a ghost and so there's new worries about his condition as well.

The character development and the relationship development in this book is something that happens along side of the plot and this makes it all feel really natural which makes the developments all the more believable. The relationship between Blue and Gansey is definitely heading in the romantic direction now with how much they both like sneaking hidden moments and late night phone calls between the two of them and the fact that there is a little bit of guilt about the way that their feelings for each other has changed just shows that their relationship is now going in a romantic direction whether they like it or not. Adam as a character is also getting some important development with him both becoming more accepting of his role with Cabeswater and with accepting help from others and realizing that when you need help sometimes it's okay to accept that help which is something he struggled with in the previous books.

Overall I loved the book it had an interesting plot going on and I loved learning more about this world but mostly I loved getting to spend time with these characters again and seeing them interact with each other and grow as people. Please tell me your thoughts on this book.
