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,

REVIEW:

Plot: 4.5/5

Characters: 5/5

Writing: 4.5/5

This is the first Cassandra Clare book that I’ve read the whole way through without taking a 5 month long break between…success!

I really enjoyed this book! I listened to a few chapters of it on audiobook when I wasn’t able to sit down and physically read, and I loved doing that. The audiobook was narrated by Daniel Sharman teen wolf represent and I feel like he did an amazing job, loved it!

Even though this book was 570 pages long, it didn’t really feel that long, I mean it took me a week to read but it still didn’t feel like the story was compacted into 570 pages.

Cassandra Clare has this unique way of enticing you into her world and gripping you with your full attention, hence why I can’t read her books very quickly. However I feel like I may be becoming more accustomed to her writing because I found this one easier to read than her other books. So that’s exciting considering I have 4 books left in TMI to read…ahh.

The characters in this novel were amazing, I just loved the different personalities and relationships they had with one another. Will and Jem have this incredible bond due to being parabatai, and that really shows throughout this instalment especially due to everything that went on… I found this to be the most important relationship in the series, even not being a romantic one.

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book where I quite loved all the side characters as much as I did this one. Throughout the novel I just grew closer to the characters and really cared for them more than I ever had in the previous instalments. Shoutout to Sophie, Henry, Charlotte, Gideon, Gabriel, Cecily, Jessamine, Magnus (who I now get the hype for) and even Bridget because without them, this series wouldn’t have been as good as it was.

There was so many moments in this book that either made me smile, literally laugh out loud, or make not-for-public-viewing facial expressions…or all at one time. I found this final instalment to be much more action packed, fast paced and fun from the very start than the other two, which I loved! Also, once again Clare provides the most amazing quotes with equal amazing delivery by the characters, which honestly aided in my growing love for the characters. Loved.

I loved the way it wrapped up, though bittersweet I couldn’t have imagined it any other way. I was expecting a-lot worse because of what I’ve heard about everyone crying throughout this whole book, but I’m not really a book-cryer so I was safe.

All-in-all, I really enjoyed this trilogy, it was fun, hilarious, heartbreaking, sweet and emotion-inducing. It’ll be sad to say goodbye to these characters, I can still remember reading the first book so clearly, I’m not quite sure why but these books feel special to me. It was just so beautiful.

Yeah that’s it,

Kate 🙂
