Riverdale: Season 6.2 – A Review

Hey guys!
Well, it is time to talk about the second half of Riverdale’s sixth season. I finished watching the first half with a sour taste in my mouth, so let’s see if things could be salvaged in the second half!

The Plot:

How on earth do I describe this? Blatant MCU rip-off superhero multiverse stuff?

The Rating:

Whenever I watch a show or movie, I usually jot down some bullet points of my thoughts, so that when I sit down to write my review (most of the time a lot later than I intended to) I can actually remember stuff. My first not for this season of Riverdale is “The bad writing makes me wanna cry.” I think this should give you a good idea of how I feel about season 6 part 2.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it another ten thousand times. This show has so much potential, but the writing is abysmally bad. And I don’t mean the fact that this season we are dealing with supernatural stuff and a parallel universe. While this sound a bit crazy, I am convinced that this could have worked out tremendously well, simply if it had been written better.

The second half of this season was not just badly written, it also felt extremely lazy on top of that. I’m going to give some examples so, the following paragraphs will contain spoilers!

Riverdale: Season 5, Part 2 – A Review

Hey guys!
We’re back with Riverdale, taking a closer look at the second half of Riverdale’s season 5. I wasn’t too impressed with the first half, but maybe they manage to redeem themselves?

The Plot:

Okay, so the timehop has happened, we are still in Riverdale. Archie is still over the place, Betty is on the hunt for a serial killer, Jughead needs to get a grip, Veronica tries to get back to being her old self, while I don’t even know what the heck is going on with Cheryl…

The Rating:

What. A. Giant. Clusterfuck.
I don’t have words for how freaking bad this season was. There were moments that has so much potential, this could have been great but overall, I think this is the season I dislike the most so far. This review will feature a lot of spoilers because, believe me, there are *a lot* of things we need to address.

The sheer craziness of some of the plot developments is nothing short of ridiculous. Some episodes were so cringe-worthy, I actually had to stop halfway through to stop halfway through to take a deep breath and a break before finishing. Let’s talk about some of that after the *read more*.

Playing with Fire by Derek Landy (Skulduggery Pleasant #2)

Hello, my darling readers!
After I enjoyed the first Skulduggery Pleasant book so much, I immediately had to pick up #2. Let’s see whether that one is good as well!

The Plot (according to Goodreads):

Skulduggery and Valkyrie are facing a new enemy: Baron Vengeous, who is determined to bring back the terrifying Faceless Ones and is crafting an army of evil to help him. Added to that, Vengeous is about to enlist a new ally (if he can raise it from the dead): the horrible Grotesquery, a very unlikable monster of legend.

Once Vengeous is on the loose, dead bodies and vampires start showing up all over Ireland. Now pretty much everybody is out to kill Valkyrie, and the daring detective duo faces its biggest challenge yet.

But what if the greatest threat to Valkyrie is just a little closer to home?

The Rating:

I’ll make sure to keep this short.
It’s just as good as the first one!

The story is intriguing enough with a good number of twists and turns that’ll keep you on your toes. It’s a really good mystery/crime book that you can’t put down.

Book vs. Movie: Maze Runner – The Scorch Trials

Hey guys!
Today I want to share my thoughts on the second installment in the Maze Runner series. Let’s see about the Scorch Trials – what’s better, book or movie?
Make sure to also check out my post on the first part!


The Plot:
After escaping the Maze the gladers are taken in by WCKD. They want to believe that the hard times are over, but little do Thomas, Theresa, Newt and the others know about what is to come…


Book vs. Movie:
So guys, I know that there is a huge fandom around the Maze runner series, but I have to admit that I am less than impressed.
I’ll begin with my thoughts on the novel by James Dashner. The first part in the series was not perfect, but it featured some interesting aspects and I was excited to see where Scorch Trials would take us.
However, I ended up disappointed. Not all of it made sense, over quite a few chapters it was boring and you could see where this was heading from the beginning. Nevertheless, I was rather by the way finished this novel. To be honest, it seemed like even the author didn’t really know what to do with the story or what to come up with. After this let-down of a book I was still interested to see what the movie would look like! Continue reading

Me from A to Z (part 2)

This is the second part of the “Me from A to Z” series! You can check out part 1 right here.
I hope you enjoy it and I’d love for some of my fellow bloggers to pick up the idea 😉
As I posted this back in 2015, I updated a few things in this posts – so you’re getting the 2019 status right now!

I – Inside Jokes: I’m pretty sure whoever has to listen to me and my friends must think that we are all nuts. Sometimes our conversations exist almost exclusively of inside jokes. As ridiculous as it is, I love it. The jokes may be totally stupid, but never fail to make me smile.

J – June: I couldn’t think of anything cool or interesting for the letter J, so I chose June, the month I was born in. I always liked it, almost summer but not yet too hot. During university my excitement over June has been ebbing. It’s when all the exams for the summer semester take place meaning that it’s nothing but stress and I hardly ever get to leave the house. Plus it usually means that I can’t spend my birthday at home nor celebrate it at all. With an exam coming up the next day you’re not in the mood for a party.

K – Kitchen: My favourite room! I love to cook and to bake so the kitchen is the place to be for me. Whenever I’m at a home center I glance longingly at all those amazing kitchens with all the appliances a cook could ever dream of. Continue reading
