I’m Back With TONS of News

Hello everyone! So I’m officially back from the three weeks of crazy I had to endure and I come bearing great news!

  1. So the first great thing that happened (other than being done with the crazy weeks) was that my comic guest post debuted on Lisa Amowitz’s blog!!
  2. The second great thing that happened is that I now have an OFFICIAL email for the blog and it is avidreaderofficial (@) gmail.com (just take out the spaces and parentheses)
  3. With that Gmail comes a Google+ so check that out too! :)
  4. The fourth thing I have is that I have a bunch of books reviews lined up, movie reviews, an interview, and more coming soon! The first actual book review will come on June 1 (but there may be one earlier depending on when I finish the book).
  5. The fifth thing is that the fourth Guest Blogging Week is coming up soon and though there is going to be an official announcement, you can start signing up now! Don’t forget to check out the policy page before you sign up!
  6. The last thing is a survey I put together with Google forms. I just wanted to check in and see what you guys think/thought so far of the blog, me, the content etc. I’m hoping that you guys actually do it because depending on what you say, more opportunities for me/the blog and you can open up. It would be appreciated if you take it and if you do, thank you!

That’s really all for today…I’m not sure when 10 Second Reviews will be renewed again as I have several books I’ve gotten from authors that I need to read first before I get to other stuff. So thank you for putting up with a lack of extra posts over these last three weeks, I promise it’s going to get pretty awesome pretty soon. Well, hopefully you’ll like it. Anyway, thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!

Weights

When I look at you I don’t feel butterflies like I used to,

With you, I’m over that.

I should be at the end by now but instead, my heart sinks to the ground

with the weight of this thing I feel for you.

It’s not love, it may be unrequited

and I don’t want it, but it stays by my side,

leaving me with light touches from this possibility.

These chains are not made from madness,

but they leave me dizzy when you laugh and smile.

When you’re not around, I feel nothing towards you.

When you are, I feel caged and free at the same time;

I feel weighted and weightless at the same time.

 

Note: if this poem was confusing to you, believe me, it was confusing for me too.

Top Ten Books That Should Be TV Series

Hello world! So today’s top ten is based on two things: the fact that The Mortal Instruments is becoming a TV Show salled Shadowhunters and this tweet:

This started a twitter convo between me,  and another person named  on what books we wished were TV Shows. It got me thinking and so I decided that this week’s top ten should be about the Top Ten Books That Should Be TV Shows so thank you Sarah and Adriyanna! I hope you enjoy:

1) The Selection Series by Kiera Cass – could you imagine starting with a brief glimpse into Queen Amberley’s Selection then, every week, watching Maxon and America on screen and finally seeing their daughter’s Selection!

2) The Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter – an all girls spy school with new adventures every week? Sign me up!

4) The Percy Jackson series/Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan – everyone including Rick Riordan wants a redo of the movies and having a TV show would be the perf way to pull this off (more Percabeth too!) and also include his other Greek/Roman series Heroes Of Olympus!

5) The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling – I loved the movies and actors but, and I’m pretty sure everyone else will agree, the movies missed quite a bit of the storyline. It’s understandable but if all the actors could play their characters in a tv show series and fans could see as they grew up again and pretty much all the things in the books were in the tv series then that would be beyond amazing….

6) The Cherub series by Robert Muchamore – can you imagine watching all the kids training to be spies and seeing their missions and the Cherub HQ? Ugh, I want this soo bad!

7) The 7 Kingdom Series by Kristin Cashore – All the beautiful monsters, Fire, Katsa and Po and Bitterblue on screen every week? YES, PLEASE!

8) The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah E Harkness – Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes!

9) The Mother – Daughter Book Club series by Heather Vogel Frederick – I want to see all the girls in the club and be part of the club and I just want this so badly!

10) The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – So I originally had this is mind as part of this list but wasn’t totally sure if it would be a TV series but then asked Twitter for their opinion and got TLC as part of their answers so it’s definitely on here (thanks  and !)

Well that’s it for today peoples! What did you guys think? Do you agree with my list? Do you have any additions? Tell me all your thoughts in the comments below!Thank you! Have a great day/night and tata for now!

What’s Happening With The Shadowhunters TV Show?

Hello everyone! It’s Fantasy Angel again back with a lot of Shadowhunter TV News! So first off on our list was that:

 1) Kat McNamara (aka Clary Fray!) dyed her hair red in order to keep with the character’s signature red hair. Fun fact: red was actually Kat’s    original hair color. Looks like she’s getting back to her roots (hahahahaha)

2) The Shadowhunters started training last week in Toronto as seen through the pictures on Twitter and Instagram from Dominic Sherwood (Jace *insert last name*), Kat (Clary Fray) and McG (the Shadowhunters producer).

and three…We’ve got our JOCELYN!!!!

Whooo! Now the person who is the amazing Jocelyn Fray is……drum roll please……Maxim Roy!! Check her out below:

Okay now for all my thoughts, questions and where she is from….

Thoughts on Maxim:

So my first thought was “How did we get two perf Jocelyns?” Okay that was a lie; my first thought about Jocelyn was “WHY DIDN’T I KNOW ABOUT THIS??!!” My second thought was then “How did we get two perf Jocelyns?” On the first point, how have I lately been getting surprises about the cast? I check almost every hour or couple of hours and not ONCE did I see anything about an announcement…..#done. Second point, I am reallly fine with Maxim being Jocelyn because she looks like Jocelyn just like Lena Headey (meaning movie Jocelyn) looked like how I thought she should. It’s really quite surprising that we’ve got two great people who both look like they could be Jocelyn…..

Now for where she’s been: a bunch of French movies (she’s from Quebec, Canada), some other movies I don’t know and, the best part, Heartland!!!! YES!!!! See, I knew I recognized her from somewhere but I thought it was maybe Gilmore Girls? I hadn’t seen the show but I thought I recognized her from pictures but now that I know she was from Heartland (a Canadian TV Show series based on an amazing book series on horses and family and other cool stuff – you need to read/watch the series!), everything’s coming back and I remember! Oh she was sooo amazing as Miranda on Heartland and I love her so much! She’s an amazing actress! It’s awesome that she’s actually the second person I have actually seen acting (Kat was the first) as now I now definitely know that she’s the perfect Jocelyn!

Okay now for the one question I have: do you think that she’ll dye her hair (like Kat) to red for the character? I love her with her black-ish hair but there’s also the character consistency that’s definitely wanted from me and the rest of the Mundane Shadowhunters…. what do you guys think: should she dye it or is it fine as is? (tell me in the comments!)

That’s really all….Well, actually there’s one last thing. So Cassandra Clare made a mini Shadowhunters FAQ so if you want to check it out, click here.

Okay, now that’s it! I hope you guys liked that epic compilation of Shadowhunters news! Don’t forget: What do you guys think of the cast? and do you think Maxim should dye her hair red like Kat or is it fine as it is? Tell me in the comments; I would love to know! Thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!
