Season 25, Episode 3 “Latin Night”

Tonight was “Latin Night” and it was good, but it could have been better. I was expecting fire and, like my title says, some sizzle with these performances. Now, I did get that with some, but not all. It was a better night compared to last night, but I think I may have set my expectations a little too high.
Now let’s look at these performances one by one.

Season 25, Episode 2 “Ballroom Night”

First you all should know that this is the first time I’ve ever watched Dancing with the Stars. In the past I’ve watched clips on YouTube of the celebrity that I knew, but this is my first time missing WWE Monday Night Raw, which is what I usually watch, to watch this show. Now, you may be wondering why? What celebrity do I love so much that I had to watch this instead of wrestling and the answer, or I guess I should say answers, are:

WWE‘s very own Nikki Bella

YouTube Violinist Sensation Lindsey Stirling

Book Review – The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening & The Struggle by L.J. Smith

The Awakening / The Struggle (The Vampire Diaries, #1-2)

So, I decided to reread the books simply because I was feeling a little nostalgic after the series finale of the TV show, not so much for the show, but for the books.
Now, the one thing I clearly remembered from the first time I read these books, which I think was almost ten years ago, was how much I hated Elena Gilbert and after finishing the books I can say those feelings were justified.

Book Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

So, when I started this book, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. All I knew was that a lot of people really liked this book and the plot seemed interesting.

At first I thought everyone had lied to me or that this just wasn’t the book for me because I did not enjoy it. For the first 170 pages, I honestly was not enjoying this book. It almost felt like a chore to get through it. I didn’t care about Tariq or Jahandar, so when chapters popped up dedicated to their POV, I found myself wanting to skip it entirely, but knowing I couldn’t because they were most likely important to the plot. Shahrzad and Khalid’s parts were interesting, but still not grabbing my attention. A part of me feels like a lot of this had to do with the fact that Renee Ahdieh takes her time setting up the story, which isn’t a bad thing, but doesn’t make for an exciting, attention grabbing beginning. The other thing is I’m quite ignorant of the culture that is depicted in this book so it was sometimes hard to follow and it also took me forever to realize there was a glossary in the back to help me understand, so once I found that, it helped me understand a lot better.
