Bingeable TV Series!

I made a blog post earlier on about bingeable book series, and since I love TV so much I decided to make a bingeable TV series post as well. These are TV series that have finished or are quite a few seasons in, that are very bingeable and addictive. A lot of these shows are pretty popular, but I threw a few that I don’t hear about that often in as well so I hope you enjoy!

The Vampire Diaries

I obviously had to start with my favourite TV show of all time because it is amazing, and one of the most bingeable series out there. The Vampire Diaries just wrapped up its final season (season 8) last fall which was really sad but I suppose all good things must come to an end. This series follows a girl named Elena Gilbert who after the death of her parents, meets a mysterious boy named Stefan Salvatore who saves her from the sadness she felt about her parents. With Stefan in her life, secrets unravel and truths rise up not only about Stefan, but about Elena that she never knew. If you haven’t watched this series just go watch it because even though it has its cheesy, cliche moments (quite often too) it  is fantastic!

Once Upon a Time

Honestly, I have no idea if they are done filming this TV show because this past season has NOT been a favourite of mine at all. However, the first five seasons are really enjoyable in my opinion, and definitely deserve to be watched. I love watching this TV show during the winter because it is dark and cold outside, which perfectly reflects the mood of Once Upon a Time. Once Upon a Time follows a cast of characters who do not remember that they are fairy tale characters placed in the real world by the evil queen, and it is up to the queen’s son, Henry to find the savior and bring her back to Storybrook to break the curse. If you like fairy tales you will adore this TV show because I know I did!

Castle

Castle is a murder mystery TV show that follows famous writer, Richard Castle as he works with the New York Police Department to solve homicides in research for his new books. I absolutely adore this TV series because while it is calculating and intriguing with its murders and situations, it is also funny and witty due to the amazing characters. Castle recently wrapped up its final season last year (season 8) and I was so devastated because the show is so great and deserved a little more air time!

The 100

This is one show that I have been watching since day one and it is an emotional roller coaster let me tell you. The 100 follows a group of teenaged prisoners who had been sent down to post-apocalyptic earth hundreds of years after a nuclear war to see if the ground is survivable. Because the ground may not be survivable, they had lived in space for hundreds of years but it is time they return to earth, but they learn to question whether or not the earth is still survivable and if they are the only ones down there?.You will want to watch this show non stop because it leaves you on the edge of your seat wanting more, which is the best reaction to a TV show you can get!

Grey’s Anatomy

You cannot help but binge Grey’s Anatomy because it is so dramatic and addicting that it takes over your life for a few weeks. Grey’s Anatomy follows a group of interns at the hospital, Seattle Grace, as they try to become doctors and figure out what they want in life. That is my basic description of it but there is so much more that goes down and it is just amazing. Go watch it!!!

Merlin

I found this TV show a few years ago and flew through it because it was really good. It takes place during the age when King Arthur was alive, and follows our main characters Merlin, who is struggling to understand the powers he has, and Arthur, a young man who is also struggling to understand his destiny. There is lots of mystic and magic which I really enjoyed, and now thinking about this TV show I really feel like rewatching it!

Those are a few bingeable TV shows and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: August 2017 Wrap Up!

The Hamilton Book Tag!

If you somehow do not know what Hamilton is…it is basically an epic musical based on the life and events of Alexander Hamilton. I am not even American, yet I absolutely love the songs from this musical, and the whole history behind them. Since I love Hamilton so much, as well as books, I thought this would the perfect tag to do! (P.S. I am not sure who created this tag, but if you do know definitely let me know!)

The Room Where It Happens – Pick a Book World That You Would Put Yourself In

Ok, so for this literally everyone has said Harry Potter, because who wouldn’t want to live in a world where magic exists? Of course that would be my answer, but I decided to be a little more original and not officially choose that. So, my answer is the Percy Jackson world from Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. I chose this because I would love to be the child of some all powerful god or goddess, and also have some fighting skills as well.

The Schulyer Sisters – Share a Female Character That You Think is Underrated

I definitely have to go with Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. Hermione is such an intelligent person, yet she doesn’t get enough credit for it. Especially by Snape, who literally calls her a snobby know-it-all, just because she knows the answers to his questions. I think that Ron and Harry also took her a little for granted and some points, and while there were moments Hermione did show some girl power, I wish there were more scenes like that!

My Shot – Pick a Character That Goes After What They Want

Emma Carstairs from Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare! I think Emma is a very strong and independent character, which I really appreciate. Emma definitely goes after what she wants no matter the consequences, and takes nothing from nobody because she knows she could easily destroy them with a flick of her sword, Cortana.

Stay Alive – Pick a Character You Wish Was Still Alive

Hahahaha, if you have not finished watching season 8 of the Vampire Diaries (yes, I am using a TV show for this question, but it is also a book so…) then DO NOT READ BELOW!

For this I have to go with Stefan Salvatore because really? You really have to go and kill off a great guy who just tries to keep the ones he loves alive? Ugh, I cried a lot because of his death. It was just so sad to think that not only is he never really going to see Elena again after her being half dead for a few years, but he is also not going to see Caroline, Damon, Bonnie and really anyone again. The thought of this is absolutely heart breaking.

Burn – The Most Devastating End To A Relationship You Read About

Champion by Marie Lu…if you have read it you know what I am talking about.

You’ll Be Back – The Sassiest Villain You Have Read In A Book

Again! I have to use The Vampire Diaries because oh my gosh, Katherine and Kai were the most sassiest and best villains I have ever watched unfold on the screen. I mean yeah, they were awful people, but they were never dull or boring.

The Reynolds Pamphlet – A Book With a Twist That You Didn’t See Coming

I don’t like being spoiled on twists that happen in books so I am just not going to answer this one!

Non Stop – Pick A Series That You Marathoned

I have marathoned many, many series so I am just going to a list a few. Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, Harry Potter by JK Rowling…The list goes on and on.

Satisfied – Pick Out Your Favourite Book With Multi POV

I can definitely tell you which book that I did not appreciate it having multiple POVs, and that was The 5th Wave by Rick Yancy. But for a book that I did enjoy that had mutli POV would probably be The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare because I always love Cassandra Clare’s main characters. They are just so fun and diverse and I always enjoying reading in their different perspectives.

Who Lives Who Dies Who Tells Your Story – Pick A Book That YOU Think Will Go Down In History

This time I am just going to go with the obvious choice, and that is Harry Potter by JK Rowling because it still has a massive impact on not only readers, but society today and it was written in the early 90’s! I think Harry Potter will not fade for a long, long, long time and I am glad because it truly is a fantastic series.

Those are my answers for the Hamilton Book Tag and I tag anyone who has the desire to do it!

Never Will I Ever Book Tag!

I was tagged by Ann at https://annthebookmaster.wordpress.com/ so thank you, and definitely check out her post as well as her blog!

Never Will I Ever Ship This: Pick a Book/Series OTP That You Will Never Ship

88fe50cc73e03e2cef66b1b3a7759602

For this, I definitely have to go with Chaol and Celaena from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. I did not agree with that ship at all because one, I am a DorianxCalaena shipper and also I just didn’t think they went that well together! Chaol is too uptight for Calaena which is why I haven’t and never will ship this OTP.

Never Will I Ever Forget This Ending: Pick a Book/Series Ending You Will Never Forget (In a Good or Bad Way)

lady-midnight-by-cassandra-clare

This was difficult because there are a lot of endings I will never forget, whether it is in a good way or a bad way. I will say that at the moment, the ending for Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare had me shook, and lets be honest, it still does. I won’t spoil anything for anyone who hasn’t read it, but if you have, you know what I mean. Those last few lines though!

Never Will I Ever Get Over this Character’s Death: Pick a Character Death from a Book/Series That You Will Never Stop Mourning (Give Spoiler Warning)

thevampirediaries

Okay, I am kind of bending the rules a bit because I am choosing a two characters from The Vampire Diaries TV show, but it is also book so at the same time its all okay. So if you haven’t completed all the seasons of The Vampire Diaries, than don’t keep reading!!!

So I have two for this answer at that is Jeremy’s death in season six, I think, because it was so heartbreaking to watch Elena lose not only her parents, but her brother as well. I know he comes back and all, like everyone seems to, but still, it broke me! Another that actually stayed dead, is Stefan Salvatore in that final episode…I cried so hard and will never stop mourning him.

Never Will I Ever Stop Crying Over this Book: Pick a Book/Series That You Will Always Cry Over (In a Good or Bad Way)

thWCIJ53JD

The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan! I chose this because even though it wasn’t all I was expecting, I cried because the series that I had been reading for years and years had ended and my favourite characters would no longer be in the spotlight anymore. I knew I would see Percy and Annabeth and the others in other Rick Riordan books, but this was the end of their adventures and the thought just makes me cry an ocean of tears!

Never Will I Ever Read this Book/Series: Pick a Book/Series You Will Never Read

the-100-tv-series-wallpapers

 

I was going to say The Vampire Diaries by LJ Smith, but I decided to change it up a bit and so I went with The 100 by Kass Morgan. I absolutely love the TV show, especially this current season, but I do not see myself ever picking up the book series just because I have heard from many reliable sources, that it is nowhere near as fantastic as the TV series. I don’t like saying never though, so possibly one day I will give it a try, but at this point, I don’t see myself reading it any time soon.

Never Will I Ever Stop Raving About this Book/Series:  Pick a Book/Series You Will Never Stop Raving About

 

I have to go with two different series for this, just because I think they are both amazing. The first is, of course, The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare because not only does it hold a lot of sentimental value to me, but I also just love the characters, the story and the world. The second series is the Ruby Red trilogy by Kerstin Gier which is just such an interesting and fun trilogy on time travel that I recommend to as many people as possible!

Never Will I Ever Lend this Book/Series to a Friend: Pick a Book/Series You Will Never Let Anyone Borrow

harry-potter-philosophers-stone-book

My Harry Potter series by JK Rowling because not only is it the beautiful UK edition, but it is also all paperback meaning it bends easily. I want everyone to read Harry Potter but they can just go to the library and pick up the series instead of ruining my gorgeous book covers!

I tag whoever wants to do this tag!

That is all for the Never Will I Ever Book Tag and thanks again, Ann, for tagging me to do this fun tag! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: May 2017 Talk!

Fall TV Shows

This post isn’t really about new TV shows coming out in the fall, but just shows to watch during the fall! These shows either give off a really cozy feeling or a spooky and more creepier vibe that is perfect for October!

The Vampire Diaries – Okay, a lot of people think the Vampire Diaries is cheesy and while it is a tiny bit, it actually is a great TV show. I think its a good TV show to watch during the fall time, especially October because it has vampires, werewolves and other supernatural creatures that makes it eerie. If you like Twilight or Teen Wolf and you haven’t checked this show out yet you need to!

Gilmore Girls – Gilmore Girls is a feel good TV show that just makes you feel all cozy and comfy. Obviously it has a few Halloween episodes but just the whole show gives me a fall vibe. Even if it’s not fall you should still watch this TV show because it is amazing and very, very addicting!

Once Upon a Time – This show is definitely on the darker side of things. It is filled with fairy tales that intertwine and has characters that are so complex and just plain awesome! While watching this, you find yourself falling for the darker characters more often with the “good” characters.

Stranger Things – I actually just completed the first season and oh my god. This show is so creepy and eerie that I had to watch during the daytime, but I couldn’t stop watching it! People go missing, creatures come out of walls, and there is a fantastic cast of very talented young actors that really make the show as amazing as it is.

Those are a few TV recommendations and I hope you liked them! If you have any more don’t forget to comment 🙂

4. Castle – Castle is a murder mystery show that I have adored for several years and I was so sad when they announced season 8 was going to be there last season (which is the season that aired this year) I just love all of the episodes and the cast is amazing and hilarious and I will forever love this show.

3. Gilmore Girls – I only started watching this show this year and I fell in love with it with the first episode! Right now I am on season 6 and its a bit slow but I am hoping to get back to it before the new episodes come back which I am so pumped for! If you haven’t watching Gilmore Girls…do it!!!

2. The Vampire Diaries – I am currently obsessed with show…again. I watched it a few years ago but got bored around season 2 but I gave it a second try this year and BAM! I am sucked into the world of the Vampire Diaries and I cannot seem to get out.

Annnnnd 1. The 100 – I loooove this show, and I need season 4 ASAP. How season 3 ended…well lets just say that was NOT nice of the creators.
