The last time I did one of these was last year in June, which I think is crazy because I love seeing what other people are going to read. I think I’m going to do these more often. At the end of the month I’m definitely going to do a June wrap up! So lets get started.

 

Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Holding Court by K.C Held

-What can I say… I love movies based on comic books. I enjoyed two Fantastic Four movies that came out a few years ago, but I’m looking forward to this reboot. I’ve enjoyed the cast of this upcoming movie in other roles, so I’m excited to see them all together in this film.

Action, Comedy

– American Ultra looks like a hoot and I’m ready for a laugh. Between Jesse Eisenberg playing a stoner, who is in fact a ‘sleeper’ government operative, to Kristen Stewart playing his live-in girlfriend, and Topher Grace as a government agent, there is sure to be some great laughs and some action, too.

HITMAN-AGENT-47-QUAD-SUMMER

Hitman: Agent 47

August 21, 2015

http://www.foxmovies.com/movies/hitman-agent-47

Action, Crime, Thriller

-I’d be lying if I said I was into this movie for more than the action, lol. I mean, I know there’s a story there, but the action is what I’m in it for… that and Zachary Quinto and Rupert Friend *drool*

 

What movies are you guys looking forward to?

#TBRTakedown Readathon

Hey guys! So I just saw this challenge on YouTube and I thought I’d give it a go. This challenge is from June 1-7 and I’m a little late but I’ll try my best to read 5 books in the remaining four days! I’m just going to write what the challenges are and which books I chose to read, and over the next few days I’ll write about my progress.

Challenges:


1. A book that’s been on your TBR shelf over a year!
Maas
For this challenge I chose Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I don’t know why I haven’t read this book yet but it’s been on my shelf since April 2014 and I recently read A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas, and I realized what I was missing out on!


2. An unread sequel sitting on your TBR shelf.
Denard
For challenge two I chose A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard. I read the first book Something Strange and Deadly I loved it I just haven’t got around to reading the sequel so here’s my chance. (:


3. A first book in a series on your TBR shelf
Spotswood
For challenge number three I chose Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood. I’ve wanted to read this since last year and I’m going to read it sometime this week.


4. An “out of your comfort zone” book on the TBR shelf!
stanton
For challenge four I chose Rock and a Hard Place by Angie Stanton anything new adult is out of my comfort zone, I don’t think I’ve ever read a new adult book.


5. A book from your most recent book haul!
rabb
So I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday and from my haul I chose Kissing in America by Margo Rabb, I think this book would be a great summer read and I can’t wait to start it.

Recap: The 100: May We Meet Again

1003

“May We Meet Again.”

 

I have been meaning to write about a show where the statement above usually ends in doom.  I don’t know why I haven’t when I find myself constantly pondering about my way of thinking and ours as humans after every episode.  You’re probably thinking I’m talking about some huge success story of a show like that of Scandal, The Blacklist or Fox’s latest success Empire but nope.  I’m talking about this powerhouse of a show on the little network that could and constantly does come up with enthralling television, The CW Network.  The 100!

You may flip over to The CW and see The 100 and first think; wow those people are really dirty.  The 100 is based on a post-apocalyptic young adult novel by Kass Morgan and developed for TV by Jason Rothenberg. Yes, post-apocalyptic is very in right now and I bloody love it! I love that so many readers are having the opportunity to see their beloved favorites come to life on the big and little screens.  Okay off soap box and back to the show…

What would you do if you had to pick between saving one person over one hundred? What if that person was your mother, lover, or best friend?  These are the decisions the kids of The 100 are making weekly, more specifically the heroine, Clarke.  Since the beginning of the show we have watched Clarke go from a peace-loving leader to a fierce woman willing to do whatever it takes to save her people even sacrifice someone she loves dearly.  Her people being The Hundred who were sent to earth from The Arc in the first episode of Season 1.  Basically, they were guinea pigs for the leaders of the Arc. They were disposable, used to see if the Earth was viable for human life. Good thing it was, since these sacrifiable young people are all that’s keeping the adults alive now that they are on the ground as we head towards the end of Season 2. If you want to catch up on all the events of season 1 head over to Netflix Streaming. For now, I’m skipping all the incredible heart-rending stuff that’s happened and focusing on the last two episodes: Rubicon and Resurrection.

The-100-cast-the-100-tv-show-37127411-843-421

I find myself inspired to write this after watching the last two episodes on Hulu Plus.   It’s 2:50am and all I can think about are the choices the characters were forced to make in the episodes!
