You’ve seen my Life after exams: Book Edition (I hope, if not here’s the link…)
https://passthefeels.wordpress.com/2016/10/23/life-after-exams-book-edition/

But, anyway, here’s a TV edition of alllll (well, most) of the things I want to watch when I’m free.

TV Shows:
(To catch up on)

  1. ab4fb3e7bb2b511376cc46bcf95d999f

    The Flash: I recently marathoned season 2, and have watched episode 1 of season 3, so I’m not far behind! Can’t wait to see Tom Felton, aka. Draco Malfoy, in S3!

  2. arrow-season-1-posters-3

    Arrow: Once again, only a few episodes behind, but still excited to be able to watch guilt free, and really be able to get into the new story line of Season 5!

  3. supernatural-season-12-poster

    Supernatural: Okayyy, so I’m not technically behind on this one anymore (which is amazing to be able to say, considering I only started watching this mega 11 season- now 12 season show- 2 years ago.) But I’m sure I’ll have at least a few episodes to watch by the time my exams are over. I love supernatural.

  4. viola-davis-hgm-key-art-s3-abc

    How to Get Away with Murder: I think I deserve an applause for having the will power to actually not binge watch the episodes that are already out in season 3, I mean, every episode is a cliff hanger! But I’m kind of purposefully/not purposefully holding back on this one, so that I can watch a whole bunch of episodes in a row. (I don’t like to be left hanging, okay…)

  5. 5b89ec3817875c9d65f87462c0ed21cf

    The Vampire Diaries: Okay, maybe now I’m just being crazy, because season 8 hasn’t even started yet (as I’m writing this, it airs in 15 minutes in the US). But I’m 99% sure I’ll be behind a couple of episodes sooner or later. So happy this is the last season, I love it, but it’s run its course in my opinion. Also, secretly hoping for Elena (Nina) to come back and marry Stefan in the end… yep, still a Stelena shipper.

  6. Reign-Season-2-Poster.jpg

    Reign: So, I’m about a season and a half behind… Currently up to season 2, episode 13. I can only watch this show when I’m in the mood, and then when I’m not, it just doesn’t appeal to me very much. But once I start watching it, I can’t stop. Definitely not one of my fav shows, but I’m excited to see the direction it takes throughout the rest of season 2, and into season 3.

  7. once-upon-a-time

    Once Upon a Time: I am currently only a couple of episodes behind in season 6, and I’m so excited to see where this season is going! You just never really know with this show… I love the emphasis on Regina this season, because I think Lana Parrilla is an amazing actress!

  8. shadowhunters_s

    Shadowhunters: Well, well, ummm. I have about 2-3 episodes until I finish season 1, but haven’t yet because the motivation is just not there. This show does have its good moments, yes, but it is so cringworthy. The only thing that is going to motivate me now is how much better season 2 looks, so I’m determined to finish this one!

(To start watching)

1.imgres

Supergirl: This show never reallly appealed to me, but seeing as I’ve become even more into the other DC shows, like Flash and Arrow, I now cannot wait to start this show! And a female protagonist with kick ass super powers? Yes please!

2. 9671191c9981e7e5ab524c200861670f

Fear the Walking Dead: Well, I’m not sure if I’m gonna like this one, but I bought the first episode on special for 99 cents on iTunes, so, I shall check it out! Plus, Alycia Debnam-Carey, yassss!

 

And probably a lot more… Whatever I come across, or gets recommended by you guys! 🙂

 

So there are all the TV shows  I plan on watching (atleast in the immediate future)!
Please let me know in the comments, or on Twitter (@thebookgram), of any others I should add to my list. What have you loved recently?

Until Next Time,

Life after exams: Book Edition

Hey lovely people!

Today, whilst I’m sick, and therefore taking a little break from studying (although, not a break from stressing about the fact that I’m not studying… #procrastination right?).

I thought I’d write a post about the books I plan on reading after exams (9th November). Seeing as my whole life has been revolved around school and exams this year (senior year, yep, it’s great), I could not be more excited to get back to reading!

So, without further ranting, here are the top 10 books I plan on reading when I can actually read again (in a not-really-ordered order)…

  1. 27276318._SY180_.jpg

    It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover. I’ve been dyinnnng to read this! I mean, a new Colleen Hoover book?! How could I not be excited to read it! Cannot wait to see what crazy plot twist, or other insane things you’d never see coming that her newest release has! 

  2. 16131489-_sy180_

    The Last Star by Rick Yancey. I cannot wait to see how this trilogy ends. It’s so mysterious, it shall be interesting! I loved the first instalment, and although the second wasn’t great (in my opinion), I do have high hopes that this will not disappoint! 

  3. 22844208-_sx120_

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (yes, for the first time), I’m both so ready, and so anxious to finish this series. All the feels are gonna hit me, that much, I do know.

  4. 17670709

    Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. I read Throne of Glass so long ago now, and didn’t completely fall in love, but it can only get better from there right? I’m so determine to get in on the hype of this series (and catch up…oops)

  5. 15719929

    City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare, as well as City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. Because it’s about time I finished this series that everyone has probably already read 1000 times over by now. These books take a while for me to get into, but I love them once I do get into them. City of Fallen Angels has been my favourite instalment yet, so I’m excited to see where these 2 go, and how it all wraps up.

  6. 17927395

    A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. Ahhh! I’m so, so excited to read this one. ACOTAR was so intriguing and crazy. Really pumped to see where this one takes the direction of the story (and to actually be caught up on a Sarah J. Maas series. That would be nice)

  7. 23846013

    The Rose Society by Marie Lu. I was not the biggest fan of book one by any means, but I feel like now that I’m older, I’ll enjoy this story a lot more, if that even makes sense… haha. I received the third installment in this series for review, so I can’t wait to devour this one, and finish off the trilogy with a bang!

  8. 24974965

    The Amateurs by Sara Shepard. My favourite mystery/thriller author has a new book? You know I’m gonna read it, and you know I’m gonna love it! Can’t wait to get my hands on this one!

  9. 29056083

    Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne. Which I can’t actually read until I’ve finished Deathly Hallows, but I’m so ready to see what goes on after the events of the final HP book! Also, I’m excited to read the script type of writing!

  10. 28686840

    Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven. I’ve started this one multiple times since I got it, but alas, school has interrupted every time. I can’t wait to actually be able to read this book properly, and finish it!

 

So, there you go. Those are the top 10 books I plan on reading after exams, and to close out the year with! There are obviously a lot more, but, these are at the top of my to-read list!

Until next time,

Kate 🙂

Pretty Little Liars 6×11: REVIEW RECAP

Welcome to my first TV recap/review i cant quite figure out what to call it!

Let me know what you guys think, I hope you like it!

Pretty-little-liars-season-6b-poster.jpg

Episode Title: 

“Of Late I Think Of Rosewood”

Air Date:
January 12th, 2016

Synopsis:
After years of tormenting and numerous shocking revelations, the Liars finally uncovered the true identity of “A” in the summer finale of season six. Now, five years later, the girls have each pursued their own paths and have started adjusting to a life without “A,” when something happens in Rosewood that forces them to go back to where it all started. Torn between their old habits and their new lives, the events in Rosewood compel the Liars to join forces once again, as relationships are put to the test and secrets are revealed. Having matured over the past few years, these are not the same girls who left Rosewood. As new lies emerge – how will they push forward without going back?

**Warning, this will contain spoilers**


RECAP/REVIEW:

PLL’s season 6 mid-season premiere, or the re-birth of PLL as I’m calling it, starts 5 years into the future of the girls lives after the reveal of A, and it really does feel new.
I found it to be a fresh take on the 6 year running series, giving it a born-again feel which I loved.

What went down:

teacher

So, the episode begins where we see Ali reading to her students, yes, her students. Alison, the girl who never went to school mainly because she was being fake kidnapped is a teacher… anyway…

dr rollins

Dr. Rollins comes in, who if not already is most likely going to be Ali’s husband as we saw her last name was Rollins at the end of 6×10. I’m not sure what to think of this guy yet, we’ll have to see how he plays out.

letter

Alison sends a letter to each of the girls asking them to come back to Rosewood and attend court to help get Charles, um, Cece, oh sorry, Charlotte out of the institute.
We see Spencer somewhere with a very dodgy green screen, which we really don’t need a picture of to see again.

aria

Aria’s chillin’ at a book signing where she picks up Ezra’s novel and stares longingly at his beautiful face on the back of it.

hanna

Next we see Hanna on a plane on her way back to Rosewood, where we all get played by the writers and think she has a kid, but it turns out to be some random ladies kid from the plane that she was looking after for some reason.

em

Then hello Em, working at some fancy tiki lookin’ bar with a Pina Colada shirt on looking like she hasn’t aged a day in 5 years, seriously they should’ve done something to her hair at-least.

slefie

The girls meet up at the good old Brew and take some super cute selfies, and it’s just like old times.
Also after that Hanna goes to the new Radley, which is now a hotel where her mumma is working, and our fav mother-daughter pair catch up.

ezra

The return of Ezra shows him looking a little worse for wear, but still gorgeous, he’s gonna be having a little trouble with alcohol throughout this season I do believe.

spoby

Toby is back, and so is all the thousands of Spoby feels *cries*. We see him building a house, which is totally gonna be for him and Spencer in the end.

mona

Mona is here, and she looks fab asking Spence about her nightmares because why wouldn’t you still have them after 6 years of torture… even if you were the one doing the torturing for a while. I love Mona, we need to see more of her.

caleb

We also see Caleb, and he’s looking as bomb as ever, aaaand brings back all the Haleb feels in one swoop, including Hanna’s feels.

court

The girls go to the Court to help Ali in getting Charlotte out of the institute/jail, and Aria is the only honest one, which is weird because she’s probably the best/most frequent liar of the 4. Also the acting from all 4 girls was on point here.

coroner

Charlotte gets out.
And then she dies. In true PLL fashion.

sarah

We have a funeral and this biatch makes a come back, acting like she’s a blind Jenna with her male prodigy helping her walk. Why do you need help walking Sara? Can you not see from behind that damn veil? Oh and now the veil is see-through. She’s so irrelevant while trying to be relevant.

funeral

It turns out Charlotte was murdered, and it wasn’t a suicide, what a surprise!

So now we have a new question on our hands that’ll most likely last us a season and a half…

Who Killed A?
