I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It was fascinating to learn more about Mindy Kaling‘s life and her career. The Office is one of my brother and I’s favorite shows and Kelly Kapoor is one of my favorite characters. So to dive into Mindy’s world and learn about all she went through before she hit it big with The Office was really enjoyable.

TV Show Review – Charmed: 1×01 “Something Wicca This Way Comes”

81vhq+y3I1L._RI_SX200_.jpg

Charmed was not a show I fell for right away, but over time it became one of my absolute favorites. With the news of the reboot coming soon, I decided to rewatch this wonderful show from the beginning and post reviews of each episode. These won’t be full blown reviews, but more like my random thoughts throughout the episode, with a summery at the end. I’ll also be rating each episode using a five star rating system.

Movie Review – Star Wars, Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

So, as we all know life can sometimes get in the way of us doing things we want to do, like rewatch and write up a review for a Star Wars movie. My life has finally settled down enough that I can finally do just that. So, without further ado, the time has come to review one of the most controversial and polarizing movies from the end of 2017. Here is my review of episode eight, The Last Jedi.

Now, after following the success of The Force Awakens, many people had spent the two years between Episode VII and Episode VIII theorizing about what would happen next. Which, in my opinion, put a lot of pressure on The Last Jedi‘s director Rian Johnson. As I said above this movie received some very strong hate directed it’s way, but also a lot of love. The question now is, where do I fall on this scale of love and hate after seeing The Last Jedi for a second time?

Book Review: The 100 by Kass Morgan

Going into this book after watching four seasons of the TV show, at first, was very difficult. The first couple chapters I just kept comparing the book to the show, but the more I read the more I realized that I had to look at the show and book as completely different things. There are some elements to the show that I like more than the book and vice versa.

Book Review – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by Alexander Freed

8f3f8-1502048542-800.jpg

I really enjoyed Rogue One and thought Alexander Freed did a good job at fleshing out the story and characters even more in this adaptation of the film. I think one of the reasons it took me so long to read this book was because I’ve seen the movie multiple times and since I already knew what was going to happen in the plot, I just wanted everything to progress faster, but since this was a novel that wasn’t the case.
That in no way means that this book is slow paced, it’s just a personal thing with me as a reader. So, I think that plus the “Supplemental Data” sections were what brought this book down for me. It’s still a well executed book that gives you great insight into the minds of these characters and explores their connections even more than they were in the film.
Overall, I did enjoy Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by Alexander Freed and I’d give it 4outof5Stars.
I’d also recommend it to any Star Wars fan or any fan of the Rogue One film.

Book Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

Okay, this book was a lot more enjoyable as a whole to me compared to The Wrath and the Dawn. It took me awhile to get into the first book, but I was hooked from the first chapter of this one. Now, I understand why I liked this one more than the first one and that’s due to the fact that the first one has to set everything up. It’s job is to introduce me to this world that Renee Ahdieh created and she did a great job in the first one, it just took me awhile to get into it.
