Shadowhunters TV: Episodes 4 to 6

I work and couldn’t get this posted each week, I’m sorry about it, everyone.

Alright, that said… let us talk about Shadowhunters so far.

Where to start? I have no idea, I’m a total blank, all I can think about is that I like it so far, and Jace is starting to be more like Jace, sometimes at least, I told you that Dominic might grow on me, didn’t I? I think I did…

I love Harry Shum Jr, but it is Matthew Daddario who is having everyone watching the show, he is so damn gorgeous, and he does a great Alec, I truly can’t wait until THE episode comes out, all the fans of the book know what I’m talking about.

Shadowhunters: ‘Dead Man’s Party’

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 so 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 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.

Shadowhunters TV Show Review: Ep 1 and 2

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 to perfection), and it is not just that he is a 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, 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 show  because in the books that is what I did. Sorry, guys!

Stitches by Shawn Mendes and Where She Went (My view)

Am I the only who listens this song and automatically thinks about Where She Went? Really, I don’t know why that book made such an impression on me, even more than If I Stay which was good, of course, but Where She Went was another level of good, maybe because it was Adam, I don’t know.

But you do know, he wrote an entire album for Mia, when she left, spoiler back there sorry, I assume that if you are reading this then you read the book and have heard the song Stitches by Shawn Mendes, which I might add (admit) I hadn’t heard before but all I could think about while listening to it, was Adam wrote songs similar to this one, at least the name is, if you have read the book then you know there is a song in Collateral Damage (Yes, the fictional album on the book by Shooting Star wrote by Adam Wilde), that is called ‘Stitch’

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 Were 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 to 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.

Male characters in books 2.0

Alright so here’s the problem when you are a booklover, bookworm, bookfanatic, whatever you want to call it… you end up having a lot of boys and sometimes girls in your life; because the more you read, the more you have characters to add to a never-ending list of fictional characters to love from many books in different genres.

A long time ago, there was this post I wrote about Favourite Books and Characters and it was good and all, but you see since then there have been so many other books and hence many main characters that have come to my attention, which I can’t put here because it will be the longest list…. Well not the longest that would be in like in a year or more from now when I read even more and have other amazing characters to talk about.

But going back to the present, and why I am rambling here today… I thought it will be nice to have a little reminder of some of the characters so far; you might not agree, you might think that I am wrong or crazy but it is my list after all and perhaps you will discover we have similar taste in books.

Special Edition: About Shadowhunters TV Cast…

I simply have to do this… Because if I don’t, then I might explode… We love The Immortal Instruments and we (fans) are hoping for the TV Series to begin in 2016, and while we do that…. Nothing, there is only this ‘at the edge of your seat’ feeling that won’t go away. The have casted some good actors, I might not agree with All of their choices but I am determined to give them all the benefit of the doubt, well there is one with whom I don’t have to do that because I am certain he’ll be great. If you haven’t read the books, I shall remind you to do so immediately because I am not holding back here…

Cast…

Katherine McNamara and Alberto Rosende will be our star and her childhood friend (I’m sorry is that spoiler? Don’t think so everyone should have read the books by now, at least one); Dominic Sherwood (Benefit of the doubt), Emeraude Toubia (BOTD), and Matthew Daddario will be portraying our lovely group of young Shadowhunters siblings (Again… this is for the fans). And Harry Shum Jr. (The one I look forward to…) will be portraying, bringing to life, making us think that a hot warlock from Brooklyn is possible, Harry as Magnus Bane, which I admit make me very happy in case you didn’t notice, I have high hopes for Harry I think he will be awesome…

Q & A with Shannon Thompson

Author of Take Me Tomorrow

Special Edition of Books Everywhere (@EachPage) 

Hello, everyone. Today I bring to you a special post with a Q&A about Take Me Tomorrow and plus some interesting details about its author, awesome Shannon Thompson, who was nice enough to respond to my ramblings about the book, which if you haven’t read please go here and found out more, or read the review I made couple of days ago: Take Me Tomorrow Review. If you haven’t read the book, I strongly recommend that you do not read the upcoming lines because it may contain some spoiler. That’s it, let us start.

Q&A Take Me Tomorrow

  • Q: I am sure you’ve been asked this but, is there going to be a sequel?

Author: There is a sequel – Take Me Yesterday – as well as a third novel – Take Me Now – written, but neither have guaranteed contracts to be published. Sharing the novel around by reviewing it helps out a lot!

  • Q: Tell me, what inspired you to write about Take Me Tomorrow?

Author: Long story short, my mother was a drug addict, and she died from her addiction when I was eleven years old. Through coping, I spent a lot of time researching about drugs, drug use, drug abuse, and more. Take Me Tomorrow was born. If you want the long story, I wrote more about this on my website: Why I Write About Immigration, Drugs, and Addiction

I encourage you to visit the link and learn more.

The Smell of a New Book

Today I wanted to pay tribute to the hardcover books, which even though I have not had the pleasure of buying from some years now, I still remember how delightful and wonderful it was to have a new book, the fresh smell of it and the whiteness of it pages. Ah! The good old days.

Entering a bookstore and seeing all the books in display is pretty much like going to heaven, going to a library with thousands of books in it, can have the same effect though I have not done that, ever, I imagine I would feel like Belle (Beauty and the Beast), that amount of books at your reach can be intoxicating.

2nd books in Series, Sagas or Trilogies

The long waited second statements; either they are not-good, good or sometimes real good. I don’t know why is like that but usually or at least the past 5 or more series I read the 2nd parts are not what you would expect. Probably the author wants to fill in the blanks and leave all the good parts for the next one, perhaps what happens it is what the characters wanted you to know or simply, it just did not hold your attention because there were only some good parts in it, enough to make it a short story but not a full book.

The fact that the books I am about to name are listed here, is because of one of the reasons above, not because they were completely bad as in really terrible, that is not it (not for all of them). You still read them, you still need to know what happens in order to move on to the next book.
