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,

Kate 🙂

Where have I been? UPDATE

Date: 28th June, 2016

Ummm, hello lovely devoted blog reader who has obviously stuck by me through my extremely varying posts lately. I appreciate you, thank you.

It has now been 3 months since I drafted this post, yes 3 months since I was actually going to post my where have I been schpeal. That’s pretty ironic. But here it is…

First of all, I’d like to apologize for my lack of posts on this platform, even though there’s been around 1-2 posts a month, so I haven’t been completely awol, that’s not good enough to me. Basically, the reason I have been so absent from everything this year is because I’m in my last year of schooling! (cue the party) I’m so excited for that to be done with on November 9th when I finish my last exam (squeals), and then I’ll be annoying all of you with a lot more weird and whacky content. *5o people unfollow right now*

Please stay… hahaha

I miss being able to have the time to sit down and really focus on writing a blog post (the only reason I’m able to do it right now is because I’m on a 2 week break). I also miss having time to be able to take pictures for TheBookGram, which if you’re reading this, I’m guessing is probably where you came from. I haven’t been neglecting that as much as this, but still haven’t been putting out as much as I’d like.

One more thing, I really miss reading. Reading has been a rather foreign concept for me this year. Whenever I’m not super busy with study, I’m usually so tired that I end up watching TV shows, which is in no way a bad thing because that is hugely another passion of mine that has really grown this year. But I wish I read more. I guess it’s no

I guess it’s no ones fault but my own, maybe it’s  schools fault a little though, or a lot.  Reading rarely occurs now without stressful thoughts appearing in my mind that makes me unable to concentrate on what I’m reading. I think that’s why Harry Potter has been such a prominent thing in my life lately, I mean, reading the books for the first time in my last year of schooling is pretty cool.

I just can’t wait to be able to do things guilt free again, and never have to worry about school, or the things that come with it ever again. I’m also kinda excited to try and start creative writing more, and maybe share my stories with you guys.
I apologize for this being a sort of rant-filled update, but hey, if you read this far, I applaud you!

For now, I just want to say thank you so, so much to those of you who have stuck by me through my strange content schedule, etc. I appreciate you all so much, and honestly am so excited to be able to join in more with the community towards the end of the year.

November 9, 4:15 pm, I’m coming for you with everything I have.

Until next time,

Kate XOXO

 

Maybe Not by Colleen Hoover: REVIEW

23587984

THE DETAILS:

Book: Maybe Not

Authors: Colleen Hoover

Pages: 120

Read: 31st March, 2016

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars


GOODREADS SUMMARY:

When Warren has the opportunity to live with a female roommate, he instantly agrees. It could be an exciting change.

Or maybe not.

Especially when that roommate is the cold and seemingly calculating Bridgette. Tensions run high and tempers flare as the two can hardly stand to be in the same room together. But Warren has a theory about Bridgette: anyone who can hate with that much passion should also have the capability to love with that much passion. And he wants to be the one to test this theory.

Will Bridgette find it in herself to warm her heart to Warren and finally learn to love?

Maybe.

Maybe not.


REVIEW:

Plot: 3/5

Characters: 4/5

Writing: 4.5/5

“I think it takes being loved in order to know how to love,”

This novella takes the character of Warren from Colleen’s novel ‘Maybe Someday’, and we get to see an insight into what his world is like through his own eyes.

In all honesty, I don’t really remember Maybe Someday all that much, but I do remember loving Warren when I read it about a year ago.

I loved being able to see the story of Warren and Bridgette through this new take on the characters, and although at times their romance annoyed me, it was so cute and I love how everything ended up.

My favourite scene has to be when Warren and Bridgette went to his sisters house, and just all the interactions their with the kids was so sweet!

Another favourite was seeing Sydney, Ridge and Brennan in this novella! It was so fantastic to be able to see them, especially Sydney, through Warrens eyes and really see how they interacted with eachother.

The problem I had with this though, surprisngly, is Warren. I didn’t seem to like him as much in this book as I did in Maybe Someday, I found him to be a little overbearing and pushy at times, and even a little creepy. The being said, this was only really a problem for me when he was around Bridgette, not anyone else. He also kind-of redemed himself a bit in the end.

Overall, I really enjoyed this novella, although I had my very small problems with it, it was still such a cute and quick read.

 

That’s all,

Kate:)

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson: REVIEW

18189606

THE DETAILS:

Book: Since You’ve Been Gone

Author: Morgan Matson

Published: Simon & Schuster

Pages: 449

Read: February 27th, 2015

Rating: 5/5 Stars


GOODREADS SUMMARY:

It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list.

On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily would normally never try. But what if they could bring her best friend back?

Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.

Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?

Kiss a stranger? Um…

Emily now has this unexpected summer, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected), to check things off Sloane’s list. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go skinny-dipping? Wait…what?


REVIEW:

Plot: 5/5

Characters: 4/5

Writing: 5/5

At first I was a bit apprehensive about this book, probably because of its length and the amount of hype its received, but wow, a book has never lived up more to the hype, as well as exceeding my expectations. It was everything I wanted it to be, yet nothing I expected it to be and so much more.
In other words, I cannot express my love for this book enough.

This novel was unlike any contemporary I’ve read before. It was the perfect blend of all the best aspects that a book can give.

The characters were amazing, the plot was one of the best I’ve ever read, so unique, the setting was just so vivid that I found myself completely lost in the book and shutting out everything going on around me, this is how you know you love a book.

The whole plot of Emily’s journey and her character development was written so exceptionally, the romance was such a joy to read. Seriously, someone find me a Frank Porter.

This is definitely a book that’s going on my favourites shelf, and will not be forgotten for a very long time, it has made a print on my little reading soul. It taught me so much about life and about who I should strive to be as a person. It showed me what real relationships should be like, it provided the most beautiful insight into friendship, and all things to do with becoming who you are.

This will most definitely not be my last Morgan Matson book, her writing is amazingWhy has it taken me so long to pick up one of her books?

All-in-all, this book was incredible and I’d recommend it to anyone and everyone. Please do yourself a favour and read it.
It’s honestly changed me for the better

Yeah that’s it,

Kate 🙂
