A Now His Watch Has Ended – Game of Thrones 5×10 Review

The most shocking moment for me wasn’t the Julius Caesar-esque ‘For the watch’ moment, it was the fact that after a season of ‘wtf’ and ‘meh’ I finally enjoyed an episode. Perhaps it was the very episodic nature of it, perhaps it is because a lot of action that we’ve been waiting for happened, perhaps it’s the numerous deaths, perhaps it’s the fact that we’re left on cliffhangers that not even I, as a book reader, know the outcome of.

5 Reasons Why the Princess Diaries Series is A Timeless Classic

One of the pinnacle points of being a 90’s kid is the sense of nostalgia permeating everything, there has to a reason why there has been so many reboots and remakes over the past couple of years – we eat those things like breakfast cereal. So it was no surprise to me that the release of the new Princess Diaries book this past week had me fangirling almost as much as if the Spice Girls announced another reunion *holding thumbs*.

Dear Me – It’s Doesn’t Pay to Be Regina George

My letter written for the Discarded Letters to My Teen Self project!

Discarded Letters to my Teen self

Dear Me,

I know that right now, you are a giant ball of insecurity, sadly that’s not going to change much but it does get better –  you get uncapped wifi.

In all your diary entries and musings, you have discovered that even though you might feel as if your appearance does not measure up to the other girls around you, or you might not be as smart or popular, the one thing you do embrace is your fast thinking and sense of humour. But sometimes you tend to use your powers for evil rather than good, putting down those around you in order to make you feel better about yourself.

Comic of the Day: Amazing Spider-Man #2

I’m beginning to fall in love with Spider-Man again. This comic was far better than it’s predecessors, even better than the other heroes, especially the Human Torch, who is also a teen hero but I’m starting to get bored of his antics.

My Foray in the First 50 Marvel Comics

I have this pedantic need to start at this beginning, to know it all. I can never casual bounce into a TV show, if a movie that I haven’t seen is on and it’s already started I won’t even bother watching it and you best know if I come into a story halfway through you have to start from the beginning again. So even though I have been reading Marvel comics off and on for a long time, my obsession with the MCU especially Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter and the podcast LEGENDS of SHIELD got me wanting to read the comics more orderly, and thanks to the podcast I was introduced to CMRO Reading Order.
