Favorites

I hate that I haven’t posted much, but I’ve been so busy with school work. Also, we’ve been trying to pack because we are hoping to move in the next month or so. We don’t know where yet, we’re waiting on a job to pop up and say ‘hey come work for us.’ We are so hopeful that one happens soon.

I also haven’t watched any actual television for the past 2-3 weeks, because we’ve been re-watching Fairy Tale and One Piece. We got the DVDs for Christmas, and so we’ve been popping in those DVDs and playing them through. It’s been fun.

Anyway, I wanted to do a quick favorites post because why not, they’re fun!

Fairest: The Lunar Chronicles

Oh man, what a good book! I actually wasn’t interested in this book, I only bought it because I absolutely love The Lunar Chronicles. I don’t really like to read those side stories for series either, like how Dorothy Must Die and The Selection have, but this one I really enjoyed, which I didn’t expect because it’s about one of the evilest characters out there in YA fiction.

There will be spoilers, but I’m not sure if you can really call them that since it just goes into detail about things you already know about Levana from the books Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress.

Without giving spoilers, this book was about Queen Levana from age 16 to about 26-27, maybe 5 or so years before the start of Cinder. It was a quick read, and I’d recommend it if you love The Lunar Chronicles.

Now for Spoilers.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall.
Who is the Fairest of them all?

Pure evil has a name, hides behind a mask of deceit, and uses her “glamour” to gain power. But who is Queen Levana? Long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress in The Lunar Chronicles, Levana lived a very different story—a story that has never been told . . . until now.

The Name of the Blade

Oh my god, Fairest comes out tomorrow! I already have my book pre-ordered, and I’m thinking I might even order the e-book so I can read it at work. I don’t know yet, haven’t decided.

Anyway, to get in the book reading mood, I read the book The Name of the Blade. It’s a pretty new here in the US, but it’s apparently been out for a while in the UK. The sequel is even out there too; I was able to find it on book depository. If you want them, they’re called The Night Itself and Darkness Hidden.

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis

What a good movie. I totally did a google search of the movie online and found a link, then watched it all. Loved it, and I’m not even a huge Aquaman fan.

Yea, it was predictable and what not, but I really enjoyed it.

Spoilers ahead.

Gurren Lagann

There are so many great animes out there that I love, but none that I have seen have made me feel so many emotions while going WTF the whole time as I did with Gurren Lagann. Also, I feel I should mention that this is a Mecha Anime, and I am not a fan of those, but this one I loved! Just thought I’d get that out of the way. Continue reading

An end to the big three

So if you haven’t heard by now, Naruto, the long running ninja series, is coming to an end. This comes after Bleach, another long running series about soul reapers, announced it would be ending. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sad about this.

I know I’m late, and this has been talked about for a while, but I though I would take this time to talk a little bit about Naruto. I’m not going to go into detail, because there is of much of it, I couldn’t even find a video trailer to shoe, but I will be really brief. This comes from the Wikipedia page, I edited it a little: Continue reading

Attack on Titan

There are no words that can describe the sheer beauty and amazingness that is Attack on Titan. If you have read my book reviews, you’ve probably gathered that I am a fan of horror stories, and this show is one of the best shows I have ever seen. Seriously, when I finally watched it earlier this year, I watched all 25 episodes in one day in Japanese. I was finishing it! Continue reading
