Life after exams: TV Edition

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,

The 5th Wave: MOVIE REVIEW

first-looks-at-the-5th-wave-trailer-and-movie-poster-image-edited-by-me-602755

I really shouldn’t have left this review to do 2 days after, but I shall do my best…

loved this movie, yep that’s all I’ve got.

No, really. This movie was so good, simply both as a movie and as a book adaptation.

Before going into this movie I didn’t really listen to anyone else’s thoughts because I wanted my opinions to be mine and mine alone, uninfluenced, and I succeeded in that.

At first I was a bit worried because I didn’t think Chloë Grace Moretz was particularly the best choice for Cassie, but from the moment the movie started I knew it was going to be good and my worries about her went out the window. Chloë was a fantastic Cassie, along with Nick Robinson as Ben Parish, and Alex Roe as Evan Walker, I though they all did an amazing job! Also little Zackary Arthur who played Sammy was perfect for the role, literally the cuteness was unbearable.

I read The 5th Wave back in 2014 so it’s been a while, but from what I can remember they hit all the important plot points, and as I was watching the movie all the feels and memories of the book came back, which was so cool to experience. Some of the scenes were honestly SO close to what I saw in my head that it was scary. In my opinion this was an amazing adaptation of an amazing book. The novel was also quite an information dump and hard to understand at first but they executed this in the movie so so well! The film included all the important information and back stories and managed to do it really well, it was so easy to follow whilst still being entertaining!

The only thing that slightly annoyed me was Ringer, because I didn’t quite expect her to be like she was when she first showed up in the movie, however as soon as that first scene of hers was over, she became more like book Ringer and all was good again.

We didn’t get too much of an insight into what life was like at Wonderland, I think that’s what it was called, or the little characters in Ben’s group, but a movie couldn’t possibly go into as much detail as the book did about all that. So that shall be left to the people like us who actually read the book. score. Although I think they could’ve gone into a little more detail about those minor characters, but oh well.

The action in this movie was never-ending, and I never got bored as I sometimes do in movies like this cough, Insurgent, cough. Constantly entertaining and had me on edge, even though I knew most of what was going to happen. The effects and CGI was done so well, it never looked cheesy or fake, and was scarily realistic, like that wave of water going over the city, oh how I would never want that to actually happen.

I really, really hope they get enough funding from this movie to be able to make the second one, because I feel like they could do a better job than that book did, (yes I didn’t really like the second book sadly). So go see this movie guys!! Whether you’ve read the book or not you’d enjoy it i hope!!!

Yeah that’s it,

Kate 🙂
