Sherlock

I love love love love love crime/detective/stuff like that tv series and movies and when I asked some of my friends what to watch, they told me to check out Sherlock.

Aaaand I never got to watch it….. until today. I didn’t know what to do and I definitely didn’t want to do my homework yet so I looked through my files and I found a folder that’s filled with Sherlock series 1 and 2. I can say that I spent my morning and afternoon well, and this is by watching Sherlock series 1 and the first episode of series 2!

It’s pretty much about Sherlock Holmes in modern day London solving crimes and puzzles with his partner, Dr. John Watson.  Each episode is an hour and 30 minutes long! So it’s like a movie except it’s not because there are two series already with 3 episodes each hahaha

The first episode appeared two years ago I think and I cannot believe I just watched this series now. I seriously recommend this to all of you. If you love CSI or Castle or shows like those, this is for you. Also it’s created and sometimes written by Steven Moffat and although most of the time the episodes (from Doctor Who and Sherlock) that he co-wrote are confusing it’s still really interesting and I think it’s a great workout for the mind.

The cast is also amazing! Benedict Cumberbatch does not only have a great face, he also has great acting skills. He plays Sherlock and he’s amazing and convincing and he really talks fast. Martin Freeman, no I don’t know if he’s related to Morgan Freeman but I want to believe that they are related, is extraordinary as well. He’s doing a great job being John…. yes…

You should all start from episode 1, series 1 so that you’ll really understand what’s happening okay. Series 1 ends with a cliffhanger and it will really suck if you don’t have series 2 so make sure you get that too!!! They haven’t announced the series premiere for series 3 yet so yeah…. just hang on there because apparently, series 2 ends with a cliffhanger worse than series 1’s cliffhanger…. yeah….

Anyway, make sure you check out Sherlock and it’s amazingness!!! 🙂

Looking for Audrey, Wait!

Image

When her ex writes a break-up song about her that rockets up the charts, Audrey is suddenly famous–she can’t go out without being mobbed by fans and paparazzi. Readers can take a wild ride with Audrey as she makes headlines, confronts her ex on MTV, and shows the world who she really is. This irresistible, fast-paced novel has a totally hot new paperback cover! Its the song everyones singing. And its about her! But for Audrey, becoming famous overnight equals total, life-changing disaster. . .

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway is definitely unlike anything I’ve ever read. This is the second time I’ve read this (the first was because a friend of mine suggested it and omg I love her for that) and I still looooooooooove this book. Each chapter starts with a quote from different songs of different bands (that I love by the way) and each quote fits perfectly well on what the chapter is about. This book will give you a glimpse in the life of a fangirl (I should know hahaha!) and it’s pretty accurate! I squealed in a lot of parts omg James is amazing and so is Audrey and Victoria and everyone else. I fell in love with it the first time and I surely fell in love with this book the second time. This book seriously deserves all the praise it received. I highly recommend this one.

*Notice how in almost every book post I do, I say I highly recommend it and it may seem weird but it’s true. I really want all of you to check it out because all these books are amazing 🙂

Miles Halter, a sixteen-year-old with a fascination for last words, begins his scholastic adventure at Culver Creek boarding school in Alabama with an introduction to his roommate Chip “Colonel” Martin, a trailer-bred genius. Chip nicknames the skinny Miles “Pudge” and introduces him to Alaska Young, a beautiful, literate and intellectually gifted teenager with a head full of elaborate pranks. Under the tutelage of his new (and real) friends, Miles learns to drink, smoke, escape punishment, and understand people. A few days following a major, adrenaline-pumping prank, Alaska drives insanely drunk, crashes her car and dies instantly. 

Miles and Chip, both grieving for their lost friend, wondering if she committed suicide or was killed accidentally, search for evidence of the reasons behind her death. They also feel guilty because they were the last people to see her alive and did not stop her from driving drunk. From his experiences with this loss, Miles learns valuable lessons about loyalty, friendship, and life. 

Looking For Alaska by John Green never failed to make me rethink my life. This is another book I just recently reread due to book shortage and I do not regret it. Life’s been shit lately and hey, who knew this was the one to help me. I also almost cried when the thing happened. The characters may be selfish and self-centered and whatnot sometimes but they’re just the perfect group of people thrown into the perfect situation to make the readers see what can be done to get out of this labyrinth of suffering. Like any typical John Green books, I highly recommend this one. 🙂

There’s also quite a lot of booze and mischief.
