TV Show Review: Shadowhunters (The Mortal Instruments) Pilot

So, as many of you may know the Shadowhunters premiered on January 12th and there was a lot of hype going on amongst the fans of Cassandra Clare's series, The Mortal Instruments. 

Was this going to be any good? Will the series be any better that the flunk of a movie that came out a few years ago? Well...I'm going to jump straight to the point.. it was not as fantastic as I may have wished... but there is definitely hope!

 

Synopsis:

On her birthday, Clary Fray discovers a surprise concerning her life. The teenager is not who she thinks she is -- she comes from a long line of human-angel hybrids, called Shadowhunters, who hunt demons. After her mother is kidnapped, Clary is thrust into the world of demon-hunting. Clary relies on mysterious Jace and fellow hunters Isabelle and Alec to help her navigate the dark world. While living in this new world among creatures like vampires and werewolves, Clary's best friend Simon helps her uncover answers that could help her find her mother. The fantasy show is based on a series of young adult books by Cassandra Clare.

My Rating: 
Book: The Truth Spell (Werewolf High, Book #1)
Author: Anita Oh
Pages: 128 pages
Release date: November 21st 2015
Synopsis:
As soon as I stepped onto the grounds of Amaris High, I knew I'd made a big mistake. I could never fit in at such a snobbish school – I was more IT girl than "it girl". But then I saw him.

Sam Spencer. My childhood best friend. But it couldn't be. Sam Spencer had died three years ago, on the night that changed everything. I need to know what happened, why he's suddenly not dead and is hanging out with a bunch of rich kids.

When the school is hit by a truth spell, it seems like the perfect chance to find out what Sam and his creepy new friends are hiding, but the weirder things get, the less I'm sure I want to know. Even for Sam, even for the free food, Amaris High might be more trouble than it's worth.

Book Review: Henge (Le Fay, Book #1) by Realm Lovejoy

My Rating: 
Book: Henge (Le Fay, Book #1)

Author: Realm Lovejoy
Release date: November 11th 2014
Synopsis:
Modern-day Camelot. Where knights no longer carry swords. Magic is dangerous. And those who seek control are not to be trusted.

Sixteen-year-old Morgan le Fay is a fire user. An ordinary girl with an extraordinary skill, she has the ability to create and command fire at will. Her dream is to become the Maven—the right hand of the future King Arthur. In the chance of a lifetime, Morgan is selected to join Arthur’s Round, an elite group of young magic users from which the new Maven will be chosen.

Along with the other fire, water, and wind users in Arthur’s Round, Morgan is rigorously trained and tested. The handsome Merlin, a brilliant water user, takes a particular interest in her. Is his friendship to be trusted, or is Merlin simply trying to win the position of Maven for himself? Among the many rivals Morgan faces is the current Maven, Mordred, who seems determined to see her fail.

But Morgan has a secret—years ago, her mother was executed for using fire magic, and Morgan’s desire for justice makes her more than ready to take on the challenge before her. Can she prevail in Camelot’s tests of survival and magic? Only time—and Morgan’s powerful fire—will tell.

Happy Belated New Year: Giveaway & My resolutions for 2016

I want to wish each and everyone of you a happy new year (I know, I know, a little late...)!! In order to celebrate the new year I have set up a fun giveaway: a gift card worthy of 25 dollars!! This is an international giveaway, so anyone can join in.

Here are my resolutions for 2016.
Healthier lifestyle
I know this is suuper cliche, but I plan on really making a drastic change in my lifestyle. I have taken the challenge in eating no meat for at least 6 days a week. I would like to be a full time vegetarian, but since my family really likes eating meat on special/random occasions, I will make an exception here and there. It's also a good opportunity to get in all the protein I may be missing out on.
