The Gilmore Girls Book Tag

Hi guys,

As a lover of Gilmore Girls, I was incredibly excited to see that there were not one but many (I saw at least 3) book tags involving the show. Today I decided to do one of the easier tags as I have to go to work in an hour and a half and don’t have a whole lot of time on my hands anymore. So, here goes the tag!

Lorelei
A character with a witty or sarcastic sense of humor

Ava from the Firebug Series (duology?) by Lish McBride hands down. She is chock full of sarcasm. Also, Kat from 10 Things I Hate About You because I felt like mentioning a movie character as well. Sue me.

Rory
Your favorite classic

I’d have to go with Othello by William Shakespeare for this one because yeah, it’s depressing and messed up and makes me feel some type of way whenever I read it but it is also my absolute favorite.

Luke
A book you secretly love but are afraid to admit.

Ummm, I might have to go with an entire type of books for this one and that would be the Amish love stories as I am hopelessly in love with quite a few of them and I almost never want to admit that love. Also, Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard as I feel like it’s become a bit more common not to like that book than it has to love it and yeah, I was very angry with it at first but after that twist of an ending I’ll admit that it holds a place very near and dear to my heart. Also, gonna have to mention the first book in the Vampire Diaries series which is…The Awakening because I’m trash for it though I would never admit it out loud or in public.

Lane
A musical character

Baz from Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. He’s not necessarily a musical character but he does play an instrument and I love that about him. I also occasionally daydream about it.

Dean
Your first book love

George from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling and come on, do I really need a reason? He’s George.

Sooki
A book you’ve devoured

This would have to be a triple tie between Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg, and the first two books in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I finished them all in a day (obviously separate days lmao).

Jess
A book you love, that gets the most hate.

Maybe Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard? I haven’t been seeing a lot of people loving on it lately.

Miss Patty
A book that was ruined by the hype

Twilight? I spent years not giving this book series even the tiniest bit of a chance because it was so incredibly hyped that I ended up hating it. I’m just now sort of giving it a chance and while I can’t say it’ll ever be my favorite book in the world, it’s not that bad.

Emily Gilmore
An expensive book

I don’t really pay full price for books. Amazon is kind of my go to place next to thriftbooks.com and ebay because I am a very poor reader with a very huge obsession but I’d have to say that the most expensive book I’ve ever bought is probably Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which I purchased the week it came out at the mall and yeah, it was pretty expensive.

Paris
An uptight character

Would it be weird if I said Frodo Baggins? Cause that’s who I’m going with. Also, Bilbo at the start of the Hobbit.

Richard Gilmore
A character death you will never get over

A death sort of happened in Gemina that I’m still not over but I feel like just saying that is a spoiler so I’m gonna run and hide now. Also, a little over half of the deaths in the Harry Potter series. They fucked me up bad. And Commander Root from the Artemis Fowl series. Everytime I read the Opal Deception I cry.

Logan
A character who has gone through the most development

Artemis Fowl. He went through so much character growth throughout the Artemis Fowl series it is incredibly unreal.

The rest of the questions in this tag were taken from A Book Lovers Playlist‘s post.

Michel
A book with a character who has an accent

Seamus Finnigan. Going with him because I could listen to his voice all day.

Christopher
A character who is part of a “Team” fandom Ex. Team Jacob or Team Edward

#TeamSpike? I honestly can’t think of a book character that fits this question right now except for maybe #TeamSimon but I am #TeamSimon not out of shipping him with Clary because I really don’t but because I think he’s amazing and yeah, non-ship reasons.

Jackson
A loyal character

Luna Lovegood. Seriously, Luna is Queen when it comes to loyalty.

Taylor
A character who always has something to say

Simon Snow. While what he says doesn’t always make the most sense, the guy does say a lot of words.

Kirk
A quirky character

Bonnie Bennett from The Vampire Diaries. Way more quirky in the books than in the show but she’s still pretty great either way. Also,  Sylvie from Firebug (told you I loved that series) who is incredibly quirky.

Babette and Morey
A couple you couldn’t imagine not being together

Outside of Luke and Lorelai? Probably Simon and Baz from Carry On because they match.

Book Lover Survival Tag

Just a forewarning, this post is in no way sponsored by Penguin Teen though they did create this awesome tag. It just so happened to be something I saw recently on YouTube and I was so intrigued and obsessed by the tag that I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

The point of this tag is to come up with 5 to 6 books to bring with you if you were going to be stranded on a deserted island which honestly is something I’ve thought about before due to being weirdly obsessive about these sort of things.

Now for the books:

  1. Artemis Fowl and the Opal Deception by Eoin ColferWhile Artemis Fowl is indeed my favorite book in the series it is the fourth book in the series that really holds a special place in my heart. It is not just an adventure story but a reunion story as well one that shows our favorite heroes suffering through loss and fighting hard to take care of and save each other. Words cannot begin to describe my love for this book or half of the feelings that I experience whenever I read this and while I have read it at least six times before I would gladly read it again and again which is precisely why I would gladly have it along with me on a deserted island.
  2. Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg: Fried Green Tomatoes isn’t just my favorite book of all time. It is the book I go to whenever I’m sad and need something warm and familiar to get me through. I have no doubt in the world that this book would provide an excellent companion during those lonely days and hard nights spent on a deserted island which is exactly why I would want to have it with me always.
  3. The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkein: The first book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy just so happens to be my very favorite book in the series. It is the book that started Frodo’s adventure and the book that made the members of the fellowship into a family. Growing up those members were the family I wanted at a time that was extremely difficult in my life and would no doubt be a comfort during a stay on a deserted island.
  4. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell: Words cannot describe my love for this book. If I had to pick one book to have multiple copies of it would be this book and the fact is that I already own 3 copies of it but I feel like I still need more. It is the book I want to own in multiple languages and the book that I want to re-read almost always. I still haven’t yet but I am sure a deserted island would be a great place to do so.
  5. A Tyranny of Petticoats: This book is an anthology of short stories and because of that facts seems like an excellent book to bring on a deserted island with me.
  6. And the last book I would bring with me on a deserted island would be Harry Potter and the Order of the because of reasons I couldn’t even begin to explain.

That’s all for today. Hope you enjoyed my list and please feel free to let me know which books you would bring with yourself in the comments below as I would love to hear them.

Series Summer Update + A Mini Review

Hi guys,

So Series Summer hasn’t been going all that well. It has however been going which I think is great. Seriously, I’m going to give myself pats on the back when they’re needed because it has been a fairly stressful summer so far. Anyhoo, with that said I have finished one book for series summer and that book is:

-drumroll-

Image result for gemina

Yep, your eyes are working correctly. No, I swear they are not deceiving you in the slightest. The first book I’ve managed to finish for Series Summer is Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman and my goodness guys was it an excellent adventure. I adored this book so much and the last few pages had me on the edge of my seat and so stuck in my feelings I didn’t know what to do.

Gemina was a whirlwind that did not slow down even once. It was to me, an excellent sequel that in no way suffered from middle book syndrome and I am literally counting the days until Obsidio comes out. I need that book yesterday, I loved Gemina so much.

Trust me, if you want an action packed adventure with likable characters, gorgeous illustrations and plenty of chaos go on and pick this book up. You will not be disappointed.

Late Post: Read-a-Thin TBR

Hello guys!

Long time no see. Seriously, I think it’s been over a month since I’ve posted which I am very sorry for. Work and school and life had gotten way too stressful and I wasn’t exactly doing much reading at the time. until now that it. This week I started reading a whole lot more than I have been in awhile and it’s all thanks to Read-A-Thin a readathon run by Jessica Marie 493A Court of Books and Love, and A Very Bookish Girl

While I haven’t made too much progress in my books so far I have made it beyond page 20 in both which I am considering a win considering I honestly haven’t been reading or at least haven’t been reading physical books actively. Anyways, I know you don’t want to hear me ramble on and on about my reading struggles so let’s get on to the tbr discussion:

Read a 2017 release: For this challenge, I picked Want by Cindy Po. The cover looks amazing, the character is insanely different from me (I mean the main character does live in space) and I’ve just heard so many different amazing things about the book both on YouTube and on Twitter that I’ve been dying to read it and thanks to this readathon I will finally be able to get to it. I may also use this book for the Read a diverse book challenge as well. 

Read a book that is the same color (or a similar color) as your birthstone: For this challenge, I picked Ash by Malinda Lo. My birthstone color is purple (Amethyst) and the spine of the book (and the naked book) are both purple so  I feel like Ash counts pretty well. 

Read a book that is related to your favorite emoji: For this challenge, I picked The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder as I happen to be a big fan of the wow or surprised emoji and this book’s synopsis seems to fit the description of the emoji fairly well. Fingers crossed that the book ends up being as interesting and wow worthy as it seems.

Read a book starting with a letter from TBR (the word “the” doesn’t count): For this challenge, I picked two books which are The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snickett and Bones of Fairy by Janni Lee Simner. I have currently started Bones of Fairy and it is very attention grabbing so far. Hoping to use it for the Read a book in 24 hours challenge as well, if work ends up allowing me to do it.

Read a book with a title or author with the same first letter as the first letter in your first name: For this challenge, I picked Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here by Anna Breslaw. Ironically, this book was one of the very first books I ever preordered and yet I still haven’t managed to read it. Here’s to hoping that will change during this readathon. 

Read a book with a warm colored cover (orange, red, yellow, brown): And lastly, for this challenge, I picked Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake. This book, the sequel to Anna Dressed in Blood also happens to be on my Series Summer tbr so in a way if I do manage to read this book during the readathon I will be killing two birds with one stone.

The very last challenge that I would like to complete is Buddy read a book and while I do not have a set buddy reading buddy yet I do have a book I would very much like to re-read during this challenge and that book is my favorite book (possibly of all time) Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.

Now I know that this tbr is very extensive and long but I do have very high hopes that I will at least be able to get half of these challenges completed before the readathon is over.

I’m going to try to get some reading done but be warned, you guys haven’t seen the last of me. I’m already planning out my next few posts in my head, the first of which happens to be an update on my Series Summer reading progress (hint hint, I finished a book on the list already, it has a blue cover and makes me want to go to space.)

Until next time,

Amber

 

Insomniac Reviews: Trials of a Teenage Werevulture

Now the story of how I found this book is not all that random. It popped up in my email one day from instafreebie and the synopsis was intriguing plus it had a poc heroine and honestly, how could I resist finding how more? So, obviously I replied to the email and slowly tackled the story which if you’re curious I gave 5 stars too.
Now before we get to the actual review can we please take a moment of silence to appreciate those perfectly amazing books that help us get out of reading slumps?
Trials of a Teenage Werevulture was not a book I expected to enjoy as much as I did but the intriguing synopsis had me curious and itching to read it. Now, I’ve read quite a few books about werewolves and shapeshifters but I’ve never read a book with this many clans or different types of creatures before. I will say that the whole last name of a character being what clean they were in was a bit hard to get used to but tbh that was my only complaint in regards to the story. Lisette was an extremely relatable companion, someone who I could have definitely been friends with in high school.
Her best friend Kegan was also exceptionally relatable and honestly their friendship moments were some of the scenes I lived for (the one where they’d planned to swap clothes and pretend to be each other was glorious) and honestly, it was the strong friendship as well as the strong familial bonds that made me enjoy this story more than if it were some run of the mill adventure story, which it wasn’t.

Not only was Lisette an extremely relatable character but she was also as badass as one would expect a teenager to be which wasn’t very. She wasn’t the best flyer or the cleanest person and she didn’t read every single thing she was supposed to. She had times where she put herself first, pouted and was an overall nusiance but she also learned from her mistakes and grew as a character and eventually even grew to accept herself.

She did what she had to in order to protect the ones she loved and ultimately ended up saving the day on accident. Overall the story was a surprisingly fun and quick read and I’m very excited to read the sequel and see what Emily Martha Sorensen has to offer.

Top Five Wednesday: Favorite Side Ships

Hi guys,

It’s Top Five Wednesday time again! Aren’t you excited? I am extremely excited because this week’s topic is favorite side ships and boy do I have a few of them. Alas, this is only a top 5 list so I won’t be able to regale you with all my favorites just yet but don’t worry- I’m sure I’ll be able to provide you with plenty of my favorite ships (side and main) in the future. Now let’s get down to business (to defeat the Huns)

5. Image result for willow and oz gif

Willow and Oz from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I mean come on, do you guys even have to ask why? Those two were so dorky and cute and just fantabulous that I couldn’t help but love and ship them. Now, this in no way means that I didn’t ship Willow with Tara because I did- a lot- I just happened to not be watching as much Buffy at that time and as a teen, I was more than just a little obsessed with Oz.

4. Image result for lafeyette and angel gif

Lafayette and Jesus from True Blood. To be completely and utterly honest with you guys, Lafayette was my favorite character in True Blood. He was flamboyantly amazing, unashamed and purely badass. I loved him so much as a character and just wanted my baby to be happy and free always. Jesus provided that happiness and I loved him for it and tbh I cried when his character exited the show.

3. Image result for tonks and remus gif

Nymphadora Tonks and Remus Lupin from Harry Potter. I know, I know, there are some people who don’t ship them at all due to shipping Wolfstar but I was one of the people who shipped Tonks and Remus to the core and tbh they were one of the few canon ships I really cared about in the book.

2. Image result for klaus and caroline gif

Klaus and Caroline from The Vampire Diaries. Come on, who didn’t ship them? I mean, they were freaking amazing for each other, oozed chemistry out their ears and he drew her a picture of a horse. Honest to God, they were too cute for words and I hope they’re able to get their perfect happy ever after one day because they deserve it.

  1. Image result for magnus and alec gif

Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood from The Immortal Instruments series. Okay so, I’m cheating a little with this one because I’ve only read the first two books and am at the point where their romance is just really beginning but I really enjoy them all the same and for reals, this ship is my ship for me and that series. My super OTP if you will.

Well, there you have it my top five side ships. Feel free to comment down below and tell me what some of your favorite side ships are cause trust me, I wanna know. Seriously, I could talk about ships all day long.

Check Out My T-Shirt!

Hey Guys,

I’m just popping in to tell you all about my recent t-shirt purchase. Payday was a couple weeks ago and as usual I wandered to redbubble which just so happens to be a site that I am very much addicted to and well, I was there to buy stickers except I saw this shirt:

Obviously, I didn’t even hesitate to spend the 25 dollars because I needed the shirt. I needed it very badly.

My experience with RedBubble was insanely good as it usually is. The shirt arrived yesterdat and there was no flaw at all in it or the packaging and I got a free sticker with it which is something I cannot complain about in the slightest.

So guys, what do you think about my new shirt? Isn’t it fabulous?

May Book Haul

Hi guys!

I wanted to tell you all about my May book haul which is honestly pretty overdue. You see, I’d tried making a video but ended up not enjoying how it looked too much to post it on youtube but I did take pictures so let’s jump right in:

20170603_115357_012

I went a bit crazy in May. I was very much in a manga mood last month and I think the image above shows that. Quick rundown of what I bought:

The first three volumes of Haikyu. Haikyu is a manga series that I probably would not have heard of outside of YouTube. I’m not someone who is very into sports manga and while I can’t tell you much about it I can give you a brief synopsis of what I do know- it’s a volleyball centric manga series that focuses on a boy who has always wanted to best his rival but ends up having to learn how to work with him instead due to their ending up on the same team. Yeah, that’s all I know and frankly, I’m perfectly fine with that. I’ve peaked at the art and it looks amazing and I’ve heard really, really good things so yeah- definitely looking forward to reading the volumes that I bought.

I also purchased or rather repurchased the fifth volumes of both Magical x Miracle and Demon Diary which also happen to be two of the very first manga series that I’d ever purchased ever. Demon Diary centers on Raenef a former street urchin who finds out that he’s the new demon lord and Eclipse the right hand of the former demon lord who ends up being his teacher. It also centers on their adventures together and the fact that Raenef is not at all demon lord material. He’s more of a floating penguins sort of guy and tbh if you ever read the manga you’ll know why I refer to him in that context.

Magical x Miracle centers around a girl named Merleawe who arrives in the Kingdom of Viegald to attend magic school. It just so happens that she arrives just after the Great Wizard Slythfarn has gone missing who she happens to look exactly alike which means a huge conspiracy is begun where she has to impersonate him which can’t be all that hard, can it?

I also purchased the entire Eerie Queerie manga series which is an awesome yaoi series that involves a guy named Mitsuo who can see, communicate and occasionally be possessed by ghosts. This special ability leads to a lot of crazy adventures in the four volume series and the addition of a romantic interest or several makes things even more interesting and (hilariously) fun.

And to finish up the manga part of my haul I bought the first volumes of Death Note, XXX Holic, Kamichama Karin, Secret Devil Chan, Interviews with Monster Girls, Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne and Full Moon.

Kamichama Karin is about a girl who discovers that her mother’s ring can turn her into a goddess. It’s such a fluffy cute series that touches on some sensitive subjects in a really nice way. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys the magical girl genre.

Now I’ve never read Kamiaze Kaito Jeanne before but apparently, it’s about a girl who is an ordinary person during the day but the reincarnation of Joan of Arc by night. Definitely an interesting synopsis right there.

Death Note is one of those series that everyone knows the synopsis of but I’ve never actually read it. I have watched the anime though, twice in English and once in Japanese but for those who have no idea what it’s about- Death Note is about a guy who ends up with a book called a Death Note and whoever’s name ends up written in the Death Note dies. This obviously leads the main character down a very dark path.

Secret Devil Chan was another manga series that I had heard about on YouTube. It sounded hilarious so I thought I might as well check it out and it was pretty hilarious (just really awkward to read out in public). Basically, a guy wants to lose his virginity so he summons a demon to do the deed with and well, that demon ends up being a he instead of a she which is a major mood killer for our protagonist who ends up trying to find ways to send the very adorable demon back where he came from except he can’t seem to shake him at all. This leads to a lot of interesting and semi-awkward moments which make for a really humorous read.

Now Interviews with Monster Girls is about a guy who lives in a world of Demi-Humans (who prefer to be called Demis) and he’s always wanted to know more about them. Then one day when he’s a teacher at a high school he discovers that there are four demis at the school he teaches at. So obviously our protagonist takes it upon himself to get to know these “monster girls” and honestly, it’s just a really cute story that may or may not be harem centric.

XXX Holic is about a guy haunted by visions of ghosts and spirits who accepts a witch named Yuko’s help when she offers it. Turns out, he’s been tricked to work for her and this employment ends up being nothing like any of his previous jobs.

And there you have it. Those are all of the manga I purchased in the month of May. Now for the books, I feel like instead of giving you a huge summary of each book I’ll list them all and explain why I bought them (if there really is one). Let’s get into it:

In May I bought Peter Darling by Austin Chant, Tithe by Holly Black, The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry and Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

I had already read and purchased Peter Darling before in e-book form but I loved it so much that when I had the opportunity to purchase a physical copy of it I jumped on it. It’s an excellent retelling/sequel to Peter Pan by the way and overall something that I really, really enjoyed. Oh and it’s #OwnVoices, features a #TransMC and is just a lovely quick read that I think everyone should check out. I highly doubt you’ll regret it.

Tithe was something that I purchased because I’d heard a lot about it on YouTube and after reading Black Cat by Holly Black I wanted to try something else out of hers. Not sure when I’m going to get a chance to read it but I am very excited to.

Neverwhere was something I purchased because I really wanted to check out one of Neil Gaiman’s adult novels. I adored Coraline by him and while I really, really wanted to read American Gods that book was sadly not in my half priced bookstore.

And for the last book I bought in the month of May, The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place, I bought it because it sounded hilarious. -shrug-

 

 

Top 5 Wednesday: Books for Your Hogwarts House

Hi guys and welcome to another top 5 wednesday.

Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group created by Gingerreadslainey that is currently  hosted by Samantha of ThoughtsOnTomes. The topic for this week is one that made me think quite a bit as I consider myself to be a Hogwarts hybrid, a slytherpuff if you will. Yes, I am a pretty even mix between a Slytherin and a Hufflepuff and if you ask me that’s pretty awesome because come on cunning and loyalty? That’s pretty cool.

Anyways it took some time for me to figure out which books would adequately represent my Hogwarts house and while I’m not entirely sure whether I’m doing a good job by listing these books or not, I still feel like they work fairly well so let’s get down to it:
Image result for nancy drew books

5. the Nancy Drew series. Yes, I am aware of how strange it is to mention this series. I mean, we’re going back old school here but when it comes right down to it the central characters were nothing if not loyal to each other. Nancy and her friends were there for each other almost always throughout the story and it took a whole lot of cunning to solve those mysteries, especially the ones where dangerous criminals were considered which let’s face it was almost always.

Image result for anna dressed in blood

4. The Anna Dressed in Blood series. Even though I’ve only read the first book in this series I don’t think I have to tell you how much cunning it takes to hunt ghosts for a living. You think the Scooby Doo gang set out with no clue what to do? Ok well, a little over half of them didn’t even though Scooby and Shaggy themselves seemed like they had no clue at all. The same thing can be said for Cas who shows a whole lot of cunning and later even some surprising loyalty throughout the book.

Image result for firebug lish mcbride

3. Don’t ask me why but I’ve always pictured Hufflepuff house as this huge friendly family and while the characters in Firebug aren’t the friendliest people all the time they are family. Trust me, they’re super steadfastly loyal to each other and would protect each other until the end- and the main character feels like she’d be a Slytherin to me.

Image result for dead witch walking

2. I picked the Hollows series because while the main character sometimes feels like she’d be a Gryffindor the book houses one of my favorite would be Hufflepuff characters right along with one of my favorite would be Slytherins and they all live in a house together which I feel like is something Hogwarts could really learn from. Screw, house only common rooms do the co-house thing.

Image result for artemis fowl

  1. My number one pick is the Artemis Fowl series because the main character is a cunning as balls criminal mastermind and while I think I’d consider him more of a Slytherclaw, the whole book series is about learning what loyalty and friendship are and honestly you guys, to me those are two of the things that are super fundamental to what being a Hufflepuff is about.

Top 5 Wednesday: Fandoms I’m No Longer In

Hello guys,

It’s time for another Top Five Wednesday post. I missed the last one due to the hellacious thing that is online college.

The topic for this week is fandoms. Not just any fandoms either but the fandoms we are no longer in and goodness- does this get the feels flowing.

I’m going to start this with fandoms that I am sort of in but not actively and then go into fandoms that I am no longer in at all (for reasons).

5. Doctor Who

Image result for doctor who gif

Yeah, I know it’s weird but it’s also true. Me, a former diehard Doctor Who fan is no longer an active participant in the Doctor Who fandom. I used to watch the show every day and would sometimes repeat seasons. I’ve honestly watched Nine’s season about 5 times and up to Ten’s season with Martha almost as much- but something happened once I got through Matt and finally managed to catch a glimpse of the Twelfth Doctor- I realized that I didn’t enjoy Clara nearly as much as other companions and was, in fact, enjoying her even less with Twelve, through no fault of his.

Now a bit of time has passed and I know that Twelve is leaving soon but I don’t feel that urgency to catch up. Maybe I will someday but then again, maybe I’ll just decide to step back for good. Who knows? Get it? Who knows.

4. Supernatural

Image result for supernatural gif

In all honesty, there are plenty of reasons as to why I’m not a super active participant in the Supernatural fandom anymore. There is a lack of representation in the show, queerbaiting, filler seasons (or every other seasonal suckage) and other things- but to be completely honest my main reason for not being in any hurry to continue is that it is so flipping long. Seriously, I think I’m going to be 50 years old and the show will still be going with the characters lying on their deathbeds refusing to give up the ghost for completely unnecessary reasons.

3. The L Word

Image result for the l word gif

The L Word was one of the first real fandoms that I joined actively. It was the first fandom for a show where I read fanfiction, obsessed over characters/ships and just repeatedly watched episodes/seasons over and over again. And then season 6 happened. Season 6 of the L Word is something that still hurts me to this day because it was the worst thing I had ever witnessed from a t.v. show. Sure, my OTP finally got together but was it really that cool when everyone suddenly started hating it and then each of the characters seemed to become a suspect in one-half of the OTP’s death including the other half of said OTP? Yeah, I didn’t think so either which is why I personally never finished the show. Once my OTP was together and I had become aware of the hell they were going to go through I decided to quit and in my head they’re happy.

2. Pretty Little Liars

Now I will always be mad at Pretty Little Liars. It was such a good show up until I think it was season 6 when they wrapped up the mystery of who A was. It was just so good- so good. And then they had to go and fuck it up with time jumps and dumbassery. I mean really did we need another A? I don’t think so.

And Number 1. The Vampire Diaries

Image result for vampire diaries gif

I feel like I might have to explain myself a bit on this one. Provide you with some background information if you will. Elena Gilbert is not my favorite t.v. show character. In fact, she is probably somewhere on the list of my least favorite characters of all time. However, I adored all other characters in the show. I especially loved Bonnie and Damon (and yes I shipped them together). I did like Elena with Stefan- they had a connection which was super deep and amazing even as friends. Damon and Elena (to me) only seemed to have lust and really awesome sex scenes… But beside the point- when Elena had her whole coffin experience I thought that it’d be time for them to take the show in a newer better direction but instead, they kept bringing up her name over and over as if we could forget she existed and just went about killing lesbians off and doing horrible time jumps like they’re ok and then there was that weird plot where Caroline was pregnant with children that weren’t even hers biologically… I quit three episodes away from the end of season 7 and I will never go back.
