TMP Television Edition: Romance

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
Today we have a TV show special with romance as the topic!

#1 Skam France

This is a pretty tough topic for me because I’m not a big fan of romance. I have yet to see Skam France but I saw so many quotes and images on tumblr, and it looks brilliant.

#2 Lucifer

While Lucifer is not the first thing you’d think of for romance TV shows, it does feature of my favorite ships: Deckerstar which is Lucifer and Chloe.

The Beholder by Anna Bright

Hello, my darling readers!
Today I want to talk about The Beholder, another stunning book that I received via subscription box. So let’s see what the excitement is all about!

The Plot:

Selah’s life is in tatters. Everything she had longed for gone down the drain. When her marriage proposal is rejected, Selah’s stepmother ships her off to find a suitable husband. After all, she is the daughter of Potomac’s leader, so this is her job. What will she encounter on the quest that sends her all the way to England, Norge, and even darker realms?

The Rating:

So, I’m not a fan of romance books, but this one has won me over. It’s not too sappy (although it gets close sometimes) and there is more going on than just a princess swooning over some cute guy.

I love that Anna Bright drew her inspiration from so many different sources. No spoilers here – you’ll see for yourself should you decide to pick up the book. Let me just tell you that it’s a lot of fun discovering those little things that obviously influenced her. She doesn’t go over the top with this or produce what feels like a cheap copy. Instead Bright creates something that is unique and fun to explore.

Top 5 Tuesday: Books that caused a major Hangover

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
Today’s topic is bookish hangovers which is definitely one of my favorites so far.

#1 ACOTAR

Damn, this series really destroyed me. One of the biggest indicators that I have a bookish hangover is usually that I find myself on tumblr looking for all the fan art, fanfics, and other stuff. After ACOTAR I kind of completely vanished on tumblr…

#2 Six of Crows

Same goes for Six of Crows. My beloved murder babies have the funniest incorrect quotes on tumblr and I could keep giggling about that for hours on end.

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Hey guys!
Another day, another book review. As I am going through my pile of books I received with subscription boxes, I found this one to stand out. The cover art is stunning, and my edition has sprayed edges that sparkle. If that hadn’t been enough to get me excited, the story being set in a library surely did the trick!

The Plot:

Elisabeth’s believes are challenged when somebody breaks into the library – her home – and releases a dangerous grimoire. A book filled with magic that has gone rogue is a strong opponent to face, but Elisabeth is willing to make a stand…

The Rating:

I’ll keep it short: I loved it. Well, I’m not 100% sure about the end but otherwise, it is a wonderful book.

There’s humor, there’s tragedy, there are plot twists, libraries, talking books, and magic. What else could you want?
Margaret Rogerson’s world is enchanting and different than what I’ve encountered to far. I wish I could jump right in!
