Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a bookish favorites post. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
Today I’m going to talk about some books to be released later this year that I’m really looking forward to. I decided to do a little theme within the theme and only picked sequels to stuff I read recently!

#1 Kingdom of the Cursed (Kingdom of the Wicked #2)

Kingdom of the Wicked was so good! I cannot wait for the sequel and hope that I will actually be released this year.

#2 The Excalibur Curse (Camelot Rising #3)

I completely devoured the first two books in the series. You have no idea how happy I am that the third installment is coming out relatively quick!

Kill la Kill – A Review

Hello, all you lovlies!
Today I want to talk about a show that was so weird to watch, I’m at a loss for words. Weird does not even begin to cover it. Why, you might ask? Well, here’s the deal…

The Plot:

Dressed up in a powerful sentinent armor, Ryuko wilds one scissor blade, fighting against the demons of her past, seeking revenge for her dead father. It soon turns out, things are more complicated than initially thought…

The Rating:

This was probably one of the weirdest things I have ever seen in my entire life. I still don’t know what the heck I watched there! ­čśů

Weird as the show may be, it certainly was entertaining. I can’t even tell you how much I laughed at the ridiculousness of the show. Sure, there are many fucked up moments, but they are so beyond over the top that I couldn’t help but chuckle. What could have amused me so, you ask?

Sexify Season 1 – A Review

Hello, my darling readers!
You know when you finish watching something on Netflix, don’t hit the “back” button fast enough and it starts playing some random trailer? That happened to me the other day and the new show Netflix decided to present me with was Sexify. I didn’t know what to make of it, it looked weird and slightly crazy. Well, there only 8 episodes, so I decided to give it a shot. How did that turn out, you ask?

The Plot (according to RT):

To build an innovative sex app and win a tech competition, a sexually inexperienced student and her friends must explore the daunting world of intimacy.

The Rating:

This was suprisingly cool! A I mentioned before, I didn’t really have any idea what to expect but the show won me over pretty quickly.
First of all, this is not an American production, it was actually made in Poland. That makes for such a nice change of scenery. I’ve been to Warsaw before and I just loved spotted places I’ve seen there. It really is a beautiful city.
Furthermore, based on what you can se on screen you can already tell this isn’t an American show. There is a certain amount of nudity. But it’s Europe. We don’t give a fuck over here. Makes me kinda wonder how people over in the U.S. will react to the show. ­čśů

But again, the nudity feature works well with the story. After all, the show is about a sex-app. Which is nothing dirty. The concept may sound weird but essentially, the women working on the app simply want to help women reach orgasm which in fact can be a pretty rare thing. They are even quite scientific and organized about this. Not to hate on the U.S. or anything, but I can’t help but think that this production simply wouldn’t have been possible or it would have gone into a different direction.

Merlin: Season 3 – A Review

Hello, y’all!
I’m slowly making my way through all the season of Merlin and just finished the third one. So, without further ado, let’s get right down to it and see if it was any good!

The Plot (according to Rotten Tomatoes):

The bewitching third series finds Arthur (Bradley James) and Merlin (Colin Morgan) discovering the long-missing Morgana (Katie McGrath) and returning her to Camelot. But her arrival may include a scheme against Uther Pendragon (Anthony Head) whose mental faculties are beginning to falter. As his father’s mind begins to fray, Arthur struggles to help Uther retain the throne. As their relationship continues to grow, Arthur and Gwen (Angel Coulby) decide to keep it hidden. Though Merlin is becoming more assertive and escaping the shadow of his mentor Gaius (Richard Wilson) the pair find they often have more strength together than apart.

The Rating:

This was a great season! I feel like the show has finally found it’s footing and is playing it’s strengths well. The plot becomes somewhat more daring, darker and intense.

While many familar faces make a return, they don’t just come back but get bigger parts to play. Additionally, there are a few new cast aditions that had me rather excited. I have some thoughts on that, so beware of spoilers after the cut!

Thursday Movie Picks: Natural Disaster

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’re going to talk about some films that depict natural disasters!

#1 The Day After Tomorrow

In this movie hell – erm, sorry earth, freezes over due to climate change. I watched this film years ago and I know the only reason for that was Jake Gyllenhaal. There isn’t a single thing I seemed to be able to remember about the movie, so I’m not sure how good it was. ­čśé

#2 Armageddon

This one might be most famous for the Aerosmith song that came on the soundtrack. With a stellar cast inlcuding Liv Tyler, Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck, this movie shows how earth almost is destroyed by an asteroid.
