Outlander Series (Voyager + Drums of Autumn)

Diana Gabaldon

I should probably start off with Voyager, and I will try to look pass the things that I did not enjoy.

I read it fast and not just because it was the first book in this series where I already knew what would happen, but because I read as fast as I could over the parts where Claire was on her own.

Spoilers ahead if you have not read these 2 books, so kindly stop if you have not read.

Outlander & Dragonfly in Amber “Review”

Author: Diana Gabaldon

Where to start? I like them enough, but I had already watched the first 2 season of the series, and I must say they are pretty similar to the books, I could easily picture Sam Heugham and Caitriona Balfe while reading, although Jamie is much taller in the books.

Brianna and Roger on the other hand, are nothing like in the books, sorry for the actor and actress who portray them, but they did not work for me, one bit.

Seven Years to Sin (Review… sort of)

Sylvia Day

Well, if you are into romance and historical, and as a plus adult fiction than you most definitely will absolutely love what goes down with Lady Jessica and the rather rakish Mr. Alistair Caulfield

Alright, let me honest with this one… Sylvia Day has an excellent imagination and the few books I have read of her have been really great, she does has a lot of books under her name and reading them all in less than a month would be viable… if only the to-read list with many amazing authors and promising titles was not as long as it is.

Lady Midnight

Do I need to say is by Cassandra Clare? You probably already know that, but there I said it. Now, I might have to warn you that this review could contain some minor spoilers, that I might talk a lot about Julian Blackthorn, and that I freaking loved it! Even more so than the other 10, I was as surprised as anyone else, because I love TMI and Clockwork Princess became one of my favorite books, but Lady Midnight was just too F**king Awesome!

And I know you will enter my chaotic thought process… thank you for being here. What you are about to read has some minor spoilers and it was written during and shortly after I read LM.

The Infernal Devices: Review and Thoughts

By Cassandra Clare

I’ll try to make this quick…

I tend to say that but considering that I have to talk about Jem, Will and Tessa that might not be entirely true this time… oh! And Gideon as well as Gabriel and Cecily but the latter two will not be that much in my ramblings…

What to say that has not been said before? I know, lots of things! Because never in my wildest dreams (cue in Taylor Swift’s song in the background if you want) would have I imagined that Cassandra could surprise me or make me love even more characters from the Shadow World, Jem is almost certainly perfect, Tess can be a little bit annoying but by book 3 you wanted to be like her or have her luck, that was when you were not crying over the events on that book, as for Will Herondale… what can I say? You might have thought he was just like Jace but in the end he really wasn’t, not entirely.

But that is enough for the overview, I will give you a bit of what I thought as I was reading Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess, since Clockwork Angel is pretty much done in that link you just overlooked.

And While We Were Here (Movie Special)

I don’t normally do this, and it isn’t because this is the greatest movie I have seen in my life but I wanted to share it… And also it isn’t just because Jamie Blackley is in it, which was why I saw the movie I admit but the more I watched the more I felt like sharing a bit about And While We Are Here, 2012 film.

It stars: Kate BosworthJamie Blackley, Iddo Goldberg

I just finished watching this movie, today: I rather not say when I saw the movie… I hope post this soon enough.

That said, it caught me, it called to me and I could feel the inner struggle of this woman, Jane (Kate Bosworth), it isn’t because she is married and enters an affair with a younger man, I think it was more about the fact she was a writer struggling with inspiration and a way of finishing a book… and I wanted to see what else happened in her life.

50 Shades of Grey

Book and Movie

Alright, as many of you may know, I don’t  normally  do movies  here but I haven’t  done 50 shades the book either and since I saw the movie, I felt like I should let it out of my system. Then I decided to make a little combo just for the sake of it and because Jamie is an awesome actor.

FSOG the book

Many of you know that it was originally thought as a Twilight fan fiction, no matter what anyone might try to say to deny that, and let us face it people, the resemblance is there, if you want a short list of them I can give it to you know.

FSOG – Twilight

*Anastasia (Ana) Steele.

*Isabella (Bella) Swan.

They both want to be called by their nickname.

They both think they are not pretty, even when the man of their life says otherwise; they both do crazy stuff to protect their hot boyfriend like cutting the palm of their hand so a vindictive vampiresse go after them or go meet a crazy ex-employee.

They both get pregnant even when the guy didn’t want a child and then the hot bf comes around and loves the kid (obviously is their son/daughter)

*Edward Cullen

*Christian Grey

Both have issues. (One more than the other). They are rich, they are adopted, and they want to buy expensive stuff to their girls.

*The families

Younger sister of C.G aka Alice from Twilight, they both love the brunette straightaway, they both are annoyingly sparkly.

Rosalie and Kate, both gorgeous and Bella/Ana wishes to be a little more like them in their heads most of the time.

Elliot and Emmett, come on. Even the names are similar and the personalities completely the same.

The same for the parents.

Oh! The most important thing of all, the break-up in book two, come on! Bella and Ana living on nothing, basically. And depressed to no end.

Moving on.
