Stranger Things Season 1: Review!

1-I_bnDm83n90965m3KxL5wQ

I’ve never done a post like this before because I run a mostly exclusive book blog, but I’m actually thinking of stretching out my blog to be more lifestyle/different types of media as well as literary. More details to come, but I wanted to share my thoughts on this new show that’s literally sweeping social media.

If you didn’t know, STRANGER THINGS is a science fiction supernatural horror drama series, an original series from Netflix, following the disappearance of a young boy named Will and the creepy supernatural shenanigans that follow. I usually don’t love horror or paranormal and all that because I rarely read that genre in terms of books, but I have a weird fascination with shows like these (i.e. THE WALKING DEAD, AMERICAN HORROR STORY). I digress. STRANGER THINGS only has eight episodes in its first season, but I adooooooored this.

In celebration of the beginning of September and the series premiere of many television shows, this week’s topic is a top ten TV show-related list!

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Monthly Recap: August 2016

Screen Shot 2016-01-19 at 8.14.52 PM

Today I’m recapping my August and talking about what I read, reviewed, and did in real life. I’m also going to talk about what’s to come on the blog next month!

Unfortunately, my August meant time for school (I started school on the 29th :/ ) and coincidentally also time for a book slump! I spent so long just doing essentially nothing (besides do summer homework and stuff) but I didn’t have a particularly good reading month. August also means ARC August, in which I had hoped to read lots of ARCs but I only read one (lmaoooo).
