TV Review:The Secret Circle:Loner(1.03)

                                               The Secret Circle:Loner(1.03)Review  
  • I think that binding the circle may not have been the best idea since it leaves them defenseless when they are alone and Zachary said that if he killed one of them they all would die.
  • I thought Zachary was very creepy but it seems like he had a good reason for wanting revenge.
  • I continue to like Cassie and Sally’s friendship but I dislike that she’s so dismissive of Diana who just wants be her friend.
  • I also like the Faye and Melissa friendship and I loved that Faye told Nick to treat Melissa right.
  • I liked that Melissa has decided she won’t let Nick use her anymore and I like that Nick actually wants to make an effort with her.
  • I loved Diana in this episode because of her trying to befriend Cassie and her wanting her Dad to be happy. Also in her last scene I got a feeling that Diana doesn’t really have anyone other then Adam which made me really sad since she’s so nice.
  • I wonder what Zachary being marked means and I wonder what really happened to Heather and how it was a worse faith then death.
  • I overall liked this episode but I felt it was the weakest so far.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

TV Review:The Vampire Diaries The End of the Affair(3.03)

                                   The Vampire Diaries The End of the Affair(3.03)Review      
  • I loved that Katherine called Damon at the beginning and end of the episode but I pretty much love any scene with those two. I wasn’t surprised by Katherine following Stefan but I’m not really happy about it either.
  • I liked the Elena and Damon scenes because they reminded me of their friendship back in season 1 were there wasn’t a lot of sexual tension.
  • I found it extremely creepy that the reason that Caroline’s Dad was torturing her was because he loved her but didn’t want to kill her. I felt so bad for all the emotional and physical torture her Dad put her through.
  • I loved the 1920s flashbacks. I actually by the relationship between Stefan and Klaus back then. I also really liked Rebecca and her relationship with Stefan.
  • I liked the idea of Gloria using magic to slow down her aging.
  • I liked that Damon tried to take Stefan’s place but I knew that was never going to work.
  • I liked Tyler and Liz going and saving Caroline. I also loved the scene towards the end of the episode were Caroline drank blood in front of her mom and she just accepted her and comforted her. I also liked that Tyler stayed to comfort Caroline.
  • I’m curious as to who is chasing after Klaus in the 20s and why he was afraid of them.
  • I loved in the flashback Stefan was delightfully evil and compelled a to drink his wife’s blood it was fabulously evil.
  • I’m glad Rebecca came back at the end and I’m glad that she was mad at Klaus and I wonder what kind of relationship her and Stefan will have now that he remembers and she’s alive again.
  • This episode has been my favorite of this season.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

TV Review:Ringer: She's Ruining Everything(1.02)

                                     Ringer:She'sRuining Everything(1.02)Review

In this episode Bridget deals with trying to cover up the body of the person she killed at the end of last episode her first thought is to run but she soon discovers now that she’s Sioban it’s not that easy to leave. In this episode we see that Juliette is a party girl much like Bridget used to be which leads to flashbacks of Bridget’s life nine years earlier and is one of the biggest reasons Bridget decides to stay. The agent guy is still looking for Bridget and he’s looking into Sioban’s life. I also really liked the relationship between Malcom and Bridget it’s nice that she has someone who will always be there for her.I also continuie to enjoy Gemma and I  weirdly like the relationship between her and Bridget as Sioban despite what Sioban was doing pre series with her husband.  Overall really enjoyed this episode and I’m looking forward to finding out why Sioban wants Bridget dead and who was the person who took the body in the end.

TV Review: The Secret Circle:Bound(1.02)

                                                     The Secret Circle:Bound(1.02)
  • In this episode I loved Faye for being the bad girl who just wants to use her power and I liked that when she killed Sally she felt really bad about it.
  • I liked that Adam tried to teach Cassie magic but I think Diana may have been a better teacher.
  • In this episode I felt like we got a better feel for who Melissa is and so far I really like her. She’s the one in the middle she seems the most sensible and she has I thing with Nick but he’s into Faye.
  • I liked Sally and Cassie becoming friends.
  • I’m really interested in what dawn and Charles are planning and I find it interesting that their stripped of their power and can only use their power if they have a certain crystal.
  • I’m interested in Dawn’s character since we know her and Charles are up to something but she seems to really care about Faye and she did use her crystal to bring Sally back to life but she may have killed her father in law without blinking as well.
  • I continue to enjoy Adam’s father even though he only has a small part.
  • I liked the talk in the car that Diana and Adam had when Diana mentions she doesn’t really know what she’s doing and she’s insecure.
  • I’m glad that they decided to bind the circle after what happened with Sally because it was pretty clear that their magic was out of control.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

TV Review: The Vampire Diaries:The Hybrid(3.02)

                                        The Vampire Diaries: The Hybrid(3.02)Review
  • I liked the scenes between Elena and Alaric. I liked that she made him see that she and Jeremy still need him and that they’re all kind of lost right now and I like that Alaric couldn’t help but protect her.
  • I liked the scenes were Jeremy tells Matt about seeing Vicki and I liked seeing both Matt and Jeremy talk about Vicki’s death.
  • I’m intrigued by what Vicki means that she can come back and I wonder why Anna says it’s a bad thing. I also wonder what Jeremy’s going to tell Matt.
  • I really liked the scene between Damon and Stefan, I also like that the scene made Damon think that Stefan can be saved.
  • I’m actually pretty happy that Klaus’s plan isn’t working for him although I’m a little worried about what will happen to when Klaus finds out Elena isn’t dead.
  • I like that this episode shows that despite all the horrible things Stefan’s doing he’s still Stefan.
  • I really loved that Tyler showed his mom that he’s a werewolf and I’m glad she accepted it. I’m also glad that she wants to save Caroline but I’m mad at her for putting Caroline in that situation.
  • I was quite surprised that Bill the vampire hunter guy was Caroline’s dad and that he didn’t seem hesitant at all about killing her. I also can’t help but feel really bad for Caroline since now both of her parents have at one point wanted to kill her.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

Book Review: Shiver

                                              Wolves of Mercy Falls:Shiver Review

Shiver is a book by Maggie Stiefvater is about a girl named Grace who was almost killed by wolves at a young age but was rescued by one with golden eyes and then became obsessed with them. Sam is a boy who turns into a wolf in the winter and he was the one who rescued Grace and he watches her from afar for years. Then after a while Sam and Grace meet and fall in love but with the weather growing colder they both know it’s only a matter of time before it all has to end.

I really liked the relationship that developed between Sam and Grace it felt magically and believable which is something I find hard to pull off well. I liked Grace she seemed normal but different enough that she felt like her own character. I loved Sam he’s my favorite character, he’s so sweet, I love how he writes songs in his head all the time and I also feel really made for him because all he wants is to stay human but he knows his time is coming to an end and also the completely disturbing thing his parents did to him when he was little.

I overall really liked the book and I liked that their were other plots that had to do with other wolves and both of the characters past but mostly Sam’s. I plan to read the next book in the series as well.

Top 10 Books I feel everyone has read except me

1.Anna and the French Kiss: It’s weird in that I never heard about or saw this book in a store but I here about on almost ever book blog that I go to.

 2. Catching Fire and Mocking Jay: I’ve read the first book of the series and while I enjoyed I don’t feel the need to read the rest of the series at the moment, also it seemed like right after I finished Hunger Games all the books are now only sold in hard cover and I prefer paperback.

3.Linger and Forever: I just finished reading Shiver and I loved so I’ll read these books as soon as I can.

4.The Mortal Instruments: These books sound interesting and everyone seems to love them so I plan to read them sometime soon.

5.Pride and Prejudice: I’ve tried to read this book but I only got about thirty or forty pages in, I just find it too dry and I don’t like any of the characters but everyone else seems to love it. 

6.Fallen: I see a lot of reviews for this book but not a lot of them are good so I don’t know if I’ll read it.

7.Deliruim: I’ll probably read this since it sounds interesting.
8. Entwined: I love this cover and the story sounds okay so I plan on reading it.
9.Vampire Academy:  I don’t plan on reading this series but I hear about it a lot.

10. Pretty Little Liars: I’ve seen the TV show but I haven’t read the books yet but I want to really badly.

TV Review: The Secret Circle: Pilot(1.01)

                                                           The Secret Circle: Pilot(1.01)Review
  • I found the scene were Charles burns down Cassie’s in order to kill her mom to be really creepy and I enjoy that he was calm through out the whole thing. I was also frightened by him when he almost killed Adam’s dad. I think he’ll end up being a good villain also he kind of reminds of Elijah from Vampire Diaries.
  • So far I like Cassie’s character a bit more here then in books and I like Adam more here then in the books. I like Faye and Diana just as much as I did in the books. I don’t really know how I feel about Nick and Melissa yet.
  • I like the relationship between Cassie and Adam here more then I did in the books. I thought they had nice chemistry and it didn’t feel like it came out of nowhere.
  • I like seeing the relationship between Faye and Diana. I look forward to more scenes between the two of them.
  •  For some reason I really liked Adam’s dad even though he’s a bit of a drunk he’s a nice one and I’m sure he’s not a bad person.
  • I like the magic that we’ve seen so far and I look forward to seeing more.
  • I like that the parents actually have a role in the story and I wonder what Dawn and Charles are up to. I also wonder if Cassie’s father the same person that he was in the books.
  • I overall really enjoyed this episode and I look forward to next week’s episode.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

TV Review: Vampire Diaries: The Birthday(3.01)

                                          Vampire Diaries: The Birthday(3.01)Review
  • I like that Elena still cares for Stefan and wants to find him. I also like that Elena admits that her kiss with Damon in the season finale was a pity kiss and I also like that Tyler mentions that the kiss probably messed with Damon’s head.
  • I like that Damon was tracking Stefan and not telling Elena about because he knows Elena wouldn’t handle that situation well and that she still thinks of Stefan as good.
  • I found Stefan’s behavior as a ripper to be really disturbing because even though he’ll rip a person apart, he’ll actually put the body back together because he felt remorse. This also makes his character more complicated.
  • I’m still really interested in Jeremy’s storyline and I’m still not sure were it’s going but I look forward to it.
  • I’m glad that by the end of the episode Caroline and Tyler got together.
  • I was sad that Andie died because I always enjoyed her and her and Damon’s screwed up relationship, also it seemed like Damon actually cared at least a little when she died.
  • I like that Stefan called Elena towards the end of the episode but I also like that he wasn’t able to say anything to her.
  • I still don’t Klaus as a character or a villain and I’m not really interested in his storyline.
  • This episode felt disconnected from the rest of the series which brother me quite a bit but I’m pretty sure that’s because of the time skip I felt the same way when I first watch the Dollhouse episode Meet Jane Doe.
  • I didn’t mind not seeing Bonnie and I like that everyone in the main cast now knows about the supernatural world.
  • I was shocked at the end when Tyler’s mom shot a whole bunch of vervain darts into Caroline’s back. I’m not sure how she knew but I hope that Caroline’s okay because I don’t know if I could continue watching the show if she were to die.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

Book Review: Heist Society

                                                                Heist Society Review

The book Heist Society by Ally Carter, author of the Gallagher Girls series, is about a girl named Kat who comes from a family of con artist and she had tried to abandon that life by going to boarding school but she gets pulled out in order to help her father keep save from a man named Arturo Taccone who believes her father stole his paintings but for once her father actually hasn’t. So Kat has to steal back Arturo Taccone’s paintings which are located in the Henley in order to assure her father’s safety. Kat plans the heist along with Hale a billionaire who decided to be a con artist after he found Kat trying to steal a painting from his family’s home, Gabrielle Kat’s cousin who is so pretty she’s often used to distract people, Simon the tech genius, and Angus and Hamish two brothers who seem to get themselves in to trouble often.

I overall really like the story and that may because I con artist. I love pretty much all the characters and I like that they all seemed to have a history with each other. My favorite character is probably Hale I find him interesting, funny and I love his relationship with Kat. I also love Gabrielle because even though she’s uses her looks to her advantage she is by no means stupid. I love Kat but I especially love her scenes with Arturo Taccone she’s just great in those scenes she’s confidant, funny and clever in everyone of those scenes. Overall it’s a really good book and I look forward to reading the next one. Please tell me your thoughts on the book.

TV Review: Ringer: Pilot(1.01)

                                                       Ringer: Pilot(1.01)Review

Ringer is about Bridget who is a recovering alcoholic who soon has to testify in court against a dangerous man but she leaves town out of fear and gets in touch with her sister Siobhan who she has seen in six years. During their time together Siobhan disappears and Bridget believing she is dead she decides to take her place. Bridget soon discovers that Siobhan’s life isn’t as perfect as she thought it was and that there are a lot of lies.

I overall found the pilot to be very intriguing and I most definitely want to know what happens next. I’m wondering just who exactly Siobhan really is and why she seems to want to live a double life. I wonder why Siobhan wanted to fake her death just so her sister can step into her life. I also want to know who wanted to kill Siobhan and why. I also wonder if Bridget’s old life will come back to haunt her.

I thought all the acting on the show was great. I really like the character of Bridget she seems like a good person overall but with a dark past. I also enjoyed Bridget’s sponsor and the FBI agent Victor I’m not sure why exactly they just seemed like two people who genuinely wants to help Bridget out. I also liked Gemma Siobhan’s best friend she was really entertaining. I didn’t particularly like the rest of the characters but I found them all intriguing which is always a good thing. Overall really good episode I look forward to next week’s episode. Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

Book Review: Gallagher Girls: Cross My Heart Hope to Spy

                            Gallagher Girls: Cross My Heart Hope to Spy Review

Cross my Heart Hope to Spy is the sequel to I’d Tell You I Love You But then I’d Have to Kill you and it starts off after winter break and Cammie still trying to put her relationship with Josh behind her. Through out the book Cammie tries to stay out of trouble but she doesn’t entirely succeeds being that she’s a spy and when some mysterious things happen she can’t help but to investigate.

About half way through the book the girls learn there is a spy school for boys called Blackthorn and a few of it’s students will be staying at Gallagher academy for the rest of the semester. Sadly we don’t really get to know most of the boys but we do get to know Zach who I love. I like the relationship that develops between Cammie and Zach it’s very different then the one Cammie and Josh had in the first book, I like that Cammie and Zach feels more like equals, also I just find Zach a lot more interesting then Josh.

I also continue to enjoy the friendship between Cammie, Bex, Liz and Macy as well as all of them as characters. I also really enjoyed Macy a lot more in this book probably due to her character development from book one. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I hope to read the third one soon. Please tell me your thoughts on the book.

Top Shows I'm looking forward to in Fall 2011

                                        Top Shows I'm looking forward to in Fall 2011
1.The Secret Circle: When I heard this was being made into a TV show I read the books which the series will be based on and I loved them. Also this series is made by the same people who made Vampire Diaries and I love that show so this one should be good as well. I’m excited to see a show about witchcraft since I’ve always been interested in magic and hope there’s at least an episode or two that deals with a misfired spell and wackyness ensues.
2.Ringer: I’ve been excited for this show since I read the plot summary it sounds really intriguing and like the show will have a lot twists. Also it stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and loved her in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Cruel Intentions.
3.Grimm: I’ve been excited for this show since I saw the trailer the idea seems really interesting and I like the idea of mixing fairytales with crime because it will make it a far more interesting crime show. Also it’s created by the co-creator of Angel and the other creator also worked on that show.
4.Vampire Diaries Season 3: I’ve loved the first two seasons of this series and as long as they don’t derail or kill off my favorite characters and stop focusing one boring love triangles, I’ll probably love this season as well.
5.Revenge: I’ve been wanting to see this show since I saw the trailer it looks really good and I hope it doesn’t get too soap opera like.
6.Psych season 6: I loved the first five seasons of this show and I’ve been missing it since season five ended and I’m sure that season 6 will be just as good if not better then season 5.
7.Once Upon a Time: This show looks like it’s going to be either really good or really bad but I’m hoping for really good. I like the idea of fairytales mixing with the real world.
8.Suburgatory: I’m not usually a big fan of sitcoms but this one looks like it has a chance at being good.
 9.Pan Am: I saw the trailer for this and it looked like it could be good and I liked that it was set in the sixties.
10.Hart of Dixie: The show itself doesn’t look all that great for it stars Rachel Bilson ( who I know form The OC) and it involves Josh Schwartz creator of The OC, Chuck and Gossip Girl, so I think it’s worth checking out.

Please tell me whta shows your looking forward to this fall.

TV Review: Alphas: A Short Time in Paradise(1.08)

                                      Alphas:A Short Time in Paradise(1.08)Review

In this episode Hicks and Nina become part of an alpha named Jonas cult who has the ability to make people see the light and when people in the cult fall sick they call Dr.Rosen to help them. Once there Dr.Rosen figures out that it’s the Jonas’s power that is making the people sick and eventually die and Jonas refuses to stop using his power on them and Dr.Rosen does what he must to save the people.

Also in this episode Rachel discovers her father has cancer and she has to convince him to get treatment for it. I overall liked this episode even though I thought it started out pretty slow but it got much better once it got to the part were Dr.Rosen came to the cult to treat the people. This episode made me realize once again how much I like Dr.Rosen as a character and I enjoyed seeing him struggling with killing Jonas in order to save everyone else. Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

                                The Nine Lives of Chloe King: Beautiful Day(1.10)Review

In this episode Chloe and Brain go to visit Brain’s grandmother who appeared to be a very sweet old lady but we soon discover that she’s part of the group trying to kill Chloe. Also in this episode Chloe confess she loves Brain to her mom and Alec over hears. Chloe also gets a message from her dad telling her to meet him at the cable car place only to discover that it’s not her dad who’s been sending her messages.

The second half this episode was a lot better then the first and filled with quite a few twists. In the second half we have Jasmine’s fake boyfriend Zane ends up killing both Valetina and Jasmine and at the very end reveals himself to be Alec’s brother. We also have Chloe’s second death and Brain coming to her body and they kiss and it’s revealed at the end he’d died already.

TV Review: Teen Wolf:Code Breaker(1.12)

                                                 Teen Wolf:Code Breaker(1.12)Review

  • I like that this episode starts exactly were the last episode ended. I liked that Alison feels conflicted about Scott being a werewolf and I like that Stiles refuses to leave Lydia alone.
  • I love the scenes between Peter and Stiles. I especially love the part were we learn that Scott’s user name and password are Alison and Stiles wonders if Peter still wants him in his pack. I also like that Stiles refuses the bite.
  • I like that Scott was able to find and rescue Derek and I was glad that Derek decides to help kill Peter after learning that peter purposely killed his sister.
  • I didn’t like that Kate and Alison tried to kill Scott and Derek but I thought Alison looked badass with a cross bow and that she didn’t want to kill them.
  • I was glad that Alison’s dad really does follow the code and I was glad he found out the truth and saved Scott.
  • I was glad that Kate died since I didn’t like her character and I’m glad she said sorry in order to save Alison.
  • I liked that everyone teamed up together in order to defeat the alpha even though I thought Peter was a great villain I’m glad that he’s gone now.
  • I’m curious to see what’s going to happen to Derek now that he’s the alpha and if he’s going to give Jackson the bite. I’m also wondering what’s happening to Lydia whether she’ll died or become a werewolf or something.
  • I overall thought this was a really good way to end the season and I found this show to overall be very good and I look forward to a second season.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode
