My Ramblings: TV Shows That Broke My Heart


To celebrate Valentine's Day Week let's discuss:
TV Shows That Broke My Heart

* If you haven't watched any of the series mentioned below beware of spoilers.


The Blacklist

Everything that went down in Season 5 Episode 8. It's a major spoiler and I would prefer to not give it away, but it has to do with Tom Keen. That was the first time in a long time that a tv show made me tear up. I'm still scarred because of that episode.
| IMDb |


House M.D.

The ending was sweet, yet painfully sad. That broke me in ways I may never recover from. This series is quite old, so beware of the next sentence (SPOILER): What a sad existence it must be just waiting for the day death takes your best friend while you're considered to be dead. It was a great ending for House as a character, but my heart still aches for that to not be true.
| IMDb |


Vampire Diaries

I don't remember in which season this happened because it's been a while since I've watched it, but the first time Jeremy died and Elena burned down the house was sob-inducing. That was one of the first times I legitimately liked a character and had to watch them die.
| IMDb |


Supernatural

I like Supernatural even though it's seen its better days, in my opinion. This series has been a roller coaster for me. There were definitely a lot of omg-what's-going-to-happen-next-and-now-I-have-to-wait-8-months for the next season to figure it out throughout their 12+ seasons. Let me be honest, the brotherly moments always bring me back.

The Power Of Book Covers: André By Sybil Bartel


They say don't judge a book by its movie...err...COVER. 
BUT they never said we couldn't PRAISE them.

This week's cover:

André
(Uncompromising #3)
By Sybil Bartel 


André

The Marines trained me to set my sights and wait for the shot. For eight years, I guarded my brothers and defended my country. Now I protect my clients. My personal security firm is the best in the business because I leave nothing to chance… until a dark-haired, hazel-eyed spitfire crosses my path.

She and her sexy-as-hell striptease were supposed to be a one-night distraction. But too late I noticed the branding on her back and my blood ran cold. This woman wasn’t a distraction—she was a death sentence.

Knowing who she was left me no choice. I took her on as my client. But running from her past wasn’t an option.

The Marines didn’t train me to retreat. They taught me to engage.

One shot. One kill.

Audio Book Review: The Gift By Dannika Dark

The Gift
(Mageri #5.5)
By Dannika Dark 

Narrator: Nicole Poole
Length: 3 hours and 4 minutes

Despite a powerful snowstorm that has shut down the city, Silver and the Mageri crew are preparing to spend a peaceful holiday at home, surrounded by family, food, and merriment. But the party comes to an abrupt end when Logan receives an unexpected call, one that forces him to make a life-changing decision that could affect his relationship with Silver forever. Can they find the courage to weather the storm?

Lives are at risk in this compelling and heartwarming story about the remarkable journey of love.

THE MAGERI SERIES is an exciting urban fantasy romance about a young woman's claim to immortality. Passionate, humorous, dark, and full of unpredictable twists, the Mageri series will take you on an unforgettable journey of love, friendship, and the hidden power within us all. Cliffhanger-free.

* This is a novella.

My Review:

Now that I've had a few months to forget my dislike of certain aspects of this series I can say that I enjoyed this novella very much. My dislike was mostly directed towards Logan and Silver and the situations they'd get themselves in. All the other characters were very likable and entertaining.

I like how this novella was set up to give a glimpse into the lives of so many of the characters. This story has me invested in a happy ending for Logan's brothers and Finn. If only writing books was a fast, painless and easy process.

Silver and Logan's happily ever after was cute and that's coming from someone that doesn't necessarily like kids in the books she reads. There are exceptions to every rule and this novella turned out to be one of them. Though I wish I had read this authors books in the order that makes little tidbits in the story more visible to me because, if I'm going off of what happened in the end of this novella, I missed a lot.

In conclusion, the family dynamic in this series is amazing. I love how this story and its characters are accepting of others that aren't like them. Their group accepts that love is love, regardless of species, gender, and ethnicity. No one should be ostracized for showing their true selves and being outside of what everyone considers the "norm". It's a beautiful message that deserves recognition!

The Audio Book:

This narrator's voice has grown on me over the course of this series and a few other books. I love her range in accents and believable male and female voices. She's made me look forward to many other audio books when I see her name mentioned as the narrator. Her narration was awesome in this novella!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Five Most Interesting Paranormal Couples

Hiya My Little Predators!!

Welcome back to:
A weekly feature created By The Broke And The Bookish
Currently featured on That Artsy Reader Girl

This Week's Topic:
Top Five Most Interesting Paranormal Couples

1. Ash & Pipper from the Steel & Stone Series By Annette Marie
Their story is full of twists and turns, one worse than the other. They also aren't the same "type/species" of daemon which makes their story so fascinating.
| My Review |

2. Raven & Christian from the Crossbreed Series By Dannika Dark
As of the third book in this series, they aren't "officially" a couple but it does lean toward it. I like their dynamic of resisting a relationship because both parties have been through so much in their immortal/long lives.
| My Review |

3. Emi & Shiro from the Red Winter Trilogy By Annette Marie
This was the sweetest love story I've willingly read in a long time. Shiro started out with amnesia. His evolution throughout the series is amazing to see.
| My Review |

4. Muse & Stefen from the Veil Series By Pippa DaCosta
Both parties have been through h*ll and back (sometimes together and other times apart). They've saved each other from immense perils various times. Their adventures are amazing and sometimes heartbreaking.
| My Review |

5. Cat & Bones from the Night Huntress Series By Jeaniene Frost
I like their dynamic. From the beginning, you get a sense that Bones will do the impossible for Cat and throughout the series, he makes good on his word. Their adventure is so good that I'm currently rereading the entire series :)
