#LoveAThon: Mini Challenge #5: X Meets Y Challenge

This is the third year I’ll be participating in the Book Blogger’s Love-A-Thon and this year, I’m cohosting the event alongside Alexa of Alexa Loves Books, Cee of The Novel Hermit and Mel of The Daily Prophecy.  Sign-ups are still open so there’s time if you want to join in (and you should) and the Love-A-Thon takes place from February 19th – 20th.  It’s the perfect way to meet new book bloggers and make new friends<3

Mix and match away! This challenge is made for you to combine the books and movies/tv shows that you love in some way, in order for other people to find new recommendations for things to check out. Whether inspired by characters or themes, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

If you liked Pushing Daisies then try The Architect of Song by A.G. Howard! The Architect of Song is actually a Beauty and the Beast retelling but there are a bunch of parallels to Pushing Daisies which I absolutely adore!

If you like Supernatural then try Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake!  Both involve awesome squads hunting demons in a super cool car!

If you like The Illusionist then try CaravalThe Illusionist has always been one of my favorite films! There’s a forbidden romance, everything about it is pure magic and there’s a scheme that reminds me of Caraval!

If you like Dexter then try The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis!  Both involve morally grey main characters who avenge the deaths of innocent people.  They also both touch upon very uncomfortable but important topics.

If you liked The Lunar Chronicles then try The 10th Kingdom!  The 10th Kingdom is a completely underrated television miniseries that deserves so much more love than it gets.  It’s a fun fairytale adventure story and I can definitely see fans of Cinder and Co. loving it!


If you like Illuminae then try Battlestar Galactica! BSG is another one of my favorite shows that I just don’t see talked about enough.  It’s quite the journey from season one to the end and it takes place on a military battelship in the depths of space.  Sound familiar? :-)

Waiting on Wednesday: Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly awaiting.  This week I’m choosing Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham.  The Gilmore Girls excitement is real in my household.  I recently joined the Gilmore Girls fandom after my husband insisted that I would love it.  We binged watched the series (a re-watch for him) and I could not get enough.  One of my favorite aspects of Gilmore Girls is the atmosphere and the way the seasons are portrayed so I couldn’t be more excited that the upcoming Netflix episodes cover a year in Stars Hollow.  But anyway, I’m supposed to be talking about books here so when I heard that Lauren Graham, who plays Lorelai Gilmore, is coming out with a non-fiction book of essays that has Gilmore Girls in the title not once, but twice, I insta-preordered it.  I can’t wait for this and the new episodes and the Funkos and just all the Gilmore Girls things.

Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls and Everything in Between

In her first work of nonfiction, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood recounts her experiences on Gilmore Girls—the first and second time—and shares stories about life, love, and working in Hollywood. This collection of essays is written in the intimate, hilarious, and down-to earth voice that made her novel, Someday Someday Maybe, a New York Times bestseller.

“This book contains some stories from my life: the awkward growing up years, the confusing dating years, the fulfilling working years, and what it was like to be asked to play one of my favorite characters again. You probably think I’m talking about my incredible achievement as Dolly in Hello, Dolly! as a Langley High School junior, a performance my dad called “you’re so much taller than the other kids.” But no! I’m talking about Lorelai Gilmore, who, back in 2008, I wasn’t sure I’d ever see again. Also included: tales of living on a houseboat, meeting guys at awards shows, and that time I was asked to be a butt model. A hint: all three made me seasick.”—Lauren Graham (via Goodreads)

Fall TV Anxiety Strikes

It seems like every Fall I get stuck in the same endless cycle of Fall TV anxiety.  I LOVE the Fall.  I LOVE new TV shows and getting to see new episodes of old favorites.  I actively follow all of the news surrounding upfronts, every bit of casting information I come across, and I find joy in reading the synopses of new shows prior to even seeing the preliminary trailers.  I make lists of all the shows that seem promising (I even gathered those into a video this year – Supergirl FTW!), I mark my calendar with all of the premiere dates and I enthusiastically set my DVR for the upcoming season.

In the first few weeks of September show premieres tend to be staggered.  Only two shows the first week?  DONE.  What? We’re adding a third in the next week? Totes handleable.  By the third week I’m still feeling pretty good and I’m locking down the final schedule of shows I’m sticking with.  Things are going well.  I’m up to date (with the exception of Jeopardy because that premieres every single day so I’m bound to rack up a few episodes here and there).  I’ve even been able to tweet reactions to shows on the night they air (spoiler free of course)!  I’m feeling good.  Things are good.

The next thing I know it’s October and some of the shows I committed to last season are returning.  New Flash (MY FAVORITE), Arrow, Fresh Off the Boat, The Mindy Project and New Girl (just to name a few), what more could a girl ask for?  Suddenly, family things keep coming up.  I’m spending a lot of time during the week catching up on blogging, reading and BookTubing since my weekends have been booked solid. I’m still able to dedicate a small amount of time to TV but realistically I’m only enjoying one 45-min episode or 2-3 20 minute episodes per night.  Unfortunately my lack of time doesn’t stop new episodes from airing.  It’s okay I think. I HAVE to have a free weekend soon.  I’ll just binge watch some stuff!

The weekend comes and goes.  I’ve barely made a dent in the shows I have to catch up on because unexpected life things keep coming up.  I can’t exactly tell my family I have no time to talk to them because there are rumors circulating that the Red Devils will be revealed on Scream Queens next week and I’m still four episodes behind.  I look at my DVR. 85% full.  My anxiety levels start skyrocketing.  I think about how I’m never going to catch up.  “Why do I do this to myself?!” I wonder.  Can I even go online anymore without being spoiled about something I’m behind on?  Then Jessica Jones premieres on Netflix in its entirety and clearly takes precedent over everything else because JESSICA JONES.  Panic attack ensue. (This is the stage I’m in now).

2

The next thing I know, it’s the holiday season.  Things in TV land are calming down as shows prepare for their Winter hiatuses.  I’m excited.  That means I’ll have weeks of time to catch up before everything resumes.  And it’s Winter.  What introvert wants to leave their house in the Winter?  Not this one.  I barely like committing to going anywhere in the Summer but suddenly I have a valid and widely accepted weather excuse to use.  It’s like a gift.  I see so many cold nights snuggling under blankets with Andrew, my Wii-mote, and lots of chocolate in my near future.  I’m sure to catch up at this rate…  Only, I’ll be adding Agent Carter to my watch list in January.  And X-Files. And Legends of Tomorrow.  And Swords of Shannara.  And…

…I give up.

Until May at least.  Everything is ending. As long as I don’t fall more than 5 episodes behind on anything I can clear my DVR of recent episodes and depend on Hulu.  There’s usually at least one or two shows I’ve decided to give up on by this point.  Whether it’s due to lack of time or interest, it’s bound to happen.  I’m finally there. I’ve finally done it.  I’ve seen all the things (or shows have been cancelled {RIP Constantine, I miss you buddy!} or I’ve come to terms with what I’ll watch when it’s released on Netflix).

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 10.46.52 PM

It usually takes until at least mid-May to fully catch up on everything I care about watching.  Coincidentally, this is when upfronts week occurs.  The cycle re-starts itself.

Do you ever feel this way or go through a similar cycle? Am I the only who stresses herself out about something that’s supposed to be entertainment?  I’m fairly certain that before social media I was never faced with this problem.  Also DVR-ing  of the past actually meant asking my mom to record Dawson’s Creek and Charmed on VHS tapes.  Maybe that’s how I missed out on Gilmore Girls and why I’m only now trying to catch up on all 8 seasons amid the madness of the Fall TV season.

5 Fandom Friday: My Apocalypse Dream Team

This weeks 5 Fandom Friday topic was thought up by Kendall Ashley of Distracted Blogger and it couldn’t be more suitable for an October topic.  Halloween is in the air and Fear the Walking Dead has been airing so a potential apocalypse is a thing most people start seriously considering again.  Escape routes and food preparation are all well and good but it’s your apocalypse team that’ll really determine whether you make it or break it.  When I hear the word apocalypse my mind immediately jumps to zombies so that’s why I’ve chosen the folks I listed below.  In order to be a part of the team I’ve drafted, there would have to be some kind of really special thing that happens to me before the apocalypse strikes because otherwise I could never have the best of the best just banding together to protect little old me.

1

1. Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) – If Buffy’s zombie slaying skills are anything like her vampire slaying skills I would not stray far from her in a crisis.  She’s has years of experience and training under her belt and I would feel completely comfortable putting my life in her hands and following her direction and if you think otherwise then you might need to get your head checked.

1

2.  Black Widow (Marvel Comics) – Natasha is well trained in martial arts and her weapons skills are a force to be reckoned with so I think Black Widow is a no-brainer when it comes to wanting to survive.  Plus, if she could introduce me to my Spider-Man once things got sorted out I would be forever grateful.

1

3.  Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) – Katniss is yet another badass female that I would trust completely on my Apocalypse dream team.  She has a strong moral compass and her physical and mental abilities are equally up to par.  I might also ask her for some archery lessons between running from campsite to campsite.

1

4. Shane Walsh (The Walking Dead) – If you haven’t been following me since The Walking Dead started airing on AMC, you may not know just how much I love Jon Berthnal’s character Shane (I assure you that my feelings toward Robert Kirkman’s comic book Shane are VERY different).  I’ve defended him time and time again and I will continue to do so.  He thought Rick was dead.  He took Lori and Karl under his wing as his family and did what was best for them.  He was the guy making all the tough decisions before Rick finally stepped up to the plate (that honestly took FOREVER) and if it weren’t for Shane Walsh that group of people would’ve died long ago. Kristin and I even made our own Team Shane t-shirts during Season 1.

1

5.  The Winchesters (Supernatural) – If we’re dealing with demons of some sort, I definitely want these guys on my side.  If not, they’re the perfect end of the world eye candy so it’s really a win-win situation any way you look at it.  Also I really wanted to include this gif because it makes me smile uncontrollably.

Location Love: The Pandorica

This past weekend Andrew and I traveled to Marist college for his 5 year reunion (it’s basically Hogwarts – see here) and since we were up that way we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try the Doctor Who themed restaurant, The Pandorica!  I’ve been wanting to go since it opened but it’s pretty far out of the way so we hadn’t made it there previously.  It’s such a cute little spot and the food is fantastic.  I think it if were located in NYC it would be too crowded to truly enjoy the experience.

As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a friendly waitress and I immediately noticed a man sitting near us outfitted in suspenders and a bow tie (yeah Whovians!).  The Pandorica definitely has a quiet atmosphere which is due to episodes of Doctor Who playing and most attendees having their eyes glued to the tv screen (think sports bar but actually fun!).  We were lucky enough to catch the latter half of the David Tennat werewolf episode and the beginning of the David Tennat – Sarah Jane – K-9 episode.  Also I was that disruptive girl who totally didn’t mind being the uncool tourist running around the restaurant to photograph EVERY DETAIL.

image3

image9

image10

So speaking of those details, my favorite touch is the Police Box mason jar full on sunflowers on several tables though I’m also partial to the Dinosaur head with a TARDIS in it’s mouth.  One of the coolest things is that right near the restrooms there is a giant crack in the wall that changes colors.  The bathroom door is fashioned after a TARDIS using a wall decal and an actual light bulb atop the door.  The inside of the bathroom is decorated to look like the interior of a TARDIS (also wall decals) and the back of the bathroom door is full of tally marks.  Hmm I wonder what those could mean? :-)  There’s also a hanging member of the Silence in wall area opposite the bathroom and an Ood that sits near the front desk.  The menus look like River Song’s journal and there’s a giant Van Gogh TARDIS mural across the back wall.  There’s also a wall of artwork that’s for sale which is not allowed to be photographed (I was nicely informed about that when I tried to snap some pics).  Even the cloth pattern on the booths is very Gallifreyan.  So A+ in the decoration department.

image2

image7

image11

image6

For dinner I ordered the Gallifreyed potato pancakes because I wasn’t super hungry and I really enjoyed them! It was the perfect amount of food and I was still able to enjoy a brownie covered in ice cream and caramel sauce once I finished.  Andrew ordered something very meaty that involved bacon so I cannot comment on his food.  If I ever have the chance to go back I would love to try the faux fish fingers and custard from the dessert menu.  It’s actually french toast sticks!

image4

image8

image12

Overall, The Pandorica is a really enjoyable place for any Whovian.  The decor is timey wimey, the staff is really friendly and the food is delish.  It’s a bit far for us to make a trip out there where The Pandorica is the sole purpose but if we ever find ourselves in the area again you can bet we’ll be going back!

GIVEAWAY: Once Upon A Time: Red’s Untold Tale By Wendy Toliver

082714_WorldofWeirTour_Phase1

Some of my favorite types of stories are fairy tales so I have been loving that retellings have grown popular in past few years.  And when it comes to fairy tales, Disney is the ultimate master of preserving classics and piecing together a story that is both accessible, enjoyable, and an instant classic which is why I am so excited to be a part of their Fairy Tale 2.0!  The three books Disney Hyperion is celebrating on this blog tour are A Whole New World (an Aladdin retelling where Jafar finds the lamp first), A Frozen Heart (the backstory of Elsa and Anna told in alternating perspectives), and the book I’ll be focusing on, Once Upon a Time: Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver (which tells the popular character Red’s story while she wasn’t on Once Upon a Time).  If you follow the #FairyTale2pt0 hashtag, you’ll be able to enter giveaways for the other books as well!  Here is the synopsis to Red’s Untold Tale:

Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help’s Granny with Granny’s baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of “control” as she discovers she has a hot temper when the “mean girls” push her too far. (“When we learn to control it, we needn’t fear it,” Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname “Red.” She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn’t understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming out. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter.

GIVEAWAY

One winner will receive 1) Copy of Red’s Untold Tale 2) plus FAIRY TALE 2.0 tank, notepad, cosmetic pouch & pillow. Prizing is courtesy of Disney Hyperion and open to US Residents.

The Next 10 Things in my Netflix Queue

I’m always posting about books that I’m reading or planning on reading so I thought it would be fun to compile a list of the next 10 things I have in my Netflix queue.  I only have 3 episodes left of The 100 and then I’ll be starting something new (but I’m not sure what yet!).  Let me know what you think I should watch next in the comments, and tell me whats in your queue!

Netflix2

1) Doctor Who Season 8 – I’m a failure Whovian who never finished the last season while it was airing because I still really dislike Clara :-/

2) The Witches of East End – I believe this series is based on a book by Melissa de la Cruz and it centers around a family of witches who live on Long Island.

3) Sense8 – This a Netflix original series that I’ve heard such incredible things about so I need to watch it.  It centers around a group of people all over the world who’s lives are linked.

4) Gilmore Girls – I started watching the first season of Gilmore Girls in May but I was told to put it on hold until the Fall so that is what I did! I have no idea why I didn’t watch the series when it aired on TV but I’m loving it so far!

5) Once Upon a Time Seasons 2-4 – I’ve only seen the first season and about half of season 2 (which I’m going to start over because I must’ve been multitasking) but I really want to see the Frozen season so I think it’s time to catch up!

6) Beauty and the Beast – In all honesty, this doesn’t look great but it’s only two seasons and I really like Kristin Kreuk fromSmallville and Eurotrip so why not.

7) Alias – Another show that I have no idea how I missed when it was on.  I like spies and badass female protagonists so this seems right up my alley!

8) Ripper Street – I love reading about Jack the Ripper and I since I very much enjoy British drama I think this show will cater to my interests.  Plus, Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) has just been added to the cast so it’s a great motivation to catch up!

9) RWBY – RWBY is originally a YouTube series about a group of four girls who fight crime and monsters. Yes please.

10) InuYasha – This is an anime series created by Rumiko Takahashi (creator of Ranma!) and I’ve been meaning to watch it for ages!  It’s about a teenage girl who can time travel to feudal Japan to help a young demon.

YouTube: Top 5 Fall TV Shows

Today I’m posting my first non-BookTube video and it’s all about the 5 new Fall TV shows I’m most anticipating!  I’m going to be filming in a different area of my room in front of some of my favorite convention artwork that I recently hung for all of my non-book videos because I’m going to do be doing more!  I read through numerous synopses and watched so many trailers before I was able to narrow it down to just five.  I decided to include only new TV shows (otherwise my list would’ve been Flash 5x).  What are you most looking forward to seeing premiere?

Arrow Vs. The Flash

I’ll never forget how excited I was to learn that Green Arrow would be the main character on a prime time television show.  The times have seriously changed in regard to the wide acceptance of comic book characters and since then, The Flash, Gotham, Agent Carter and Daredevil (I’m not counting Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because it’s boring and I just cannot get into no matter how many times I try) have also been picked up (and most recently SUPERGIRL *dances*) There’s almost nothing I love more than seeing these characters explored in the format of a television series.  I really love that we get to spend more time in their worlds than we would if they had been made into a film (not to mention the first films would ALL be origin stories… again, boring) and see them develop even further.

1

I had been convinced that Arrow would be my new favorite show, but once The Flash premiered I knew I was sorely mistaken.  It pains me to say this but because I LOVE Felicity Smoak and Ray Palmer, but lately Arrow hasn’t been holding my interest or living up to my expectations.  If there’s one thing Arrow should do right, it’s Black Canary, and it just hasn’t happened.  Sarah was pretty okay (by no means was she impressive enough to live up to the Black Canary in our comics) but Laurel is probably the worst character ever.  Every time she comes onscreen I feel annoyed.  I’m angry with DC for ruining such an amazing character.  It actually blows my mind to even be writing this article because John Barrowman is a reoccurring character on Arrow.  How could I not love a show with John Barrowman?!  Also, has anyone else gotten slightly irritated with how emo Oliver is?  I am one of those people that does NOT ship Felicity with Oliver because she deserves SO MUCH BETTER.  I’m also not super into Thea’s storyline but as long as Felicity and Ray have a home in Starling City, I’ll continue to watch it weekly.  TBH it wasn’t until The Flash started airing that I actually put a ton of thought into analyzing my Arrow feelings.  In retrospect, I think I was so excited that Arrow was actually on TV that I wasn’t worried about whether it was actually good.

On the other hand, The Flash, is just about everything I was looking for in a TV show.  I’m not saying that it’s perfect, there are some definite issues with the series (particularly with Iris and several plot holes), but since episode one premiered I feel like I’ve been having all-caps FUN.  Barry is awkward and sweet and so genuine in all of his relationships.  I love that while he is aware that his identity could put others in danger, he doesn’t shut out the entire world.  He still relies heavily on Joe for life advice and he tries to be the best friend he can be to Iris.  I also really love Caitlin, Cisco and Wells as Barry’s scientific team.  Most of all, season one of The Flash has not yet concluded but SO MUCH has happened.  The story is very quick paced and it’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that it only starting airing last October.  There is nothing that I love more than when Felicity Smoak visits Central City because her interactions with Barry are just my absolute favorite thing to watch.

Overall, I have to say that The FlashArrow.  While darker shows can be executed wonderfully (ie. Daredevil), there’s no need for as much angst as Oliver Queen loves to bring us every week.  Barry and his merry band of science folk have won this girl’s heart and I can’t wait to see how the season is going to end.  In the meantime, I am SO EXCITED about seeing Supergirl in the fall, I’m crossing all of my fingers that ABC will renew Agent Carter, I’m ECSTATIC that we’re getting another season of Daredevil, and I have yet to get into Gotham but I remember enjoying The Penguin in the first few episodes I did see.
