Let us begin with this, the book is not for everyone. That said, I loved it!
How many do I say that about a book? Quite often, I know, but if you know me then you know I mostly write here about the books I enjoyed.
Intimate Enemies was difficult for me to really start reading, I had it on my phone for some time actually, and I had read the first page I think, first line and was like, eh, maybe not, even though it was Shana’s and I love how she writes, one of my favourite authors, in case you didn’t figure that one out due to the extensive quotes I have all around from her books, and the fact that most of my reviews are about books by her.
I strayed from the path there, sorry. Back to IE, it has a certain uniqueness to it; the book is set years ago, as in 1170’s more or less, and by the title you can guess that this two clans are not really friendly, until Arion and Lauren are old enough to know they have a thing for each other. Are you planning on reading the book? Don’t worry there is not much spoiler here.
So, here we are once again. I cannot keep it to myself… but don’t worry this one will be short.
Alright… I’m going to say it, I love the show, I admit it but why do they have to do unnecessary changes? I don’t understand! Camille a brunet? Come on! She is blond with green eyes, is that do difficult? Hey, the actress is good and all, but it’s the details people, the details.
Simon, Simon… I can’t say anything that I haven’t already, to me that character is nearly nonexistent, yes, he does stuff in the books, and he is kind of important and what is coming his way, well, we all know where it is heading, if you read the books you know what I’m saying, if not, is pretty obvious. But the point here is, that he is in the scene and I feel like I should like him or have some sort of affinity but I really don’t.
What is coming… so, I realize that I have been talking a lot about Shadowhunters, lately. So, yes, I’m a fan, I don’t care.
But that does not mean I have not read anything else, that is why I have a couple of post coming soon to the site.
*7 Years to Sin
Alright, here we go.
First off, I love Matthew Daddario, I thought that Kevin Z was Alec, but Matthew gives another meaning to bringing to life a character from a book, he studied Alec, you can tell by the way he acts (and if he didn’t then he wings it), and it is not just that he is good enough actor, no, you actually believe Alec is there, just like Emeraude Toubia does Izzy, haven’t seen much of it, but the bits and parts of it, she gets the idea and she looks the part as well.
Yes, we are first talking about the actors and actresses, don’t worry, I’ll get to the good stuff soon enough. Carrying on with Alberto Rosende, so, he kind of is Simon but I personally am not a fan, as yet. Wasn’t a fan of Simon in the books but hey, that is my personal prerogative. And maybe that is why I simply ignore Simon in the series because in the books that is what I did. Sorry, guys!
