In a world where we’re constantly looking for diverse books, look for Who Do You Think I Am?Β by Dawn McClaughlin, Illustrated by Hannah Rowe.

Shadowhunters Ep 8 β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†

This week onΒ Shadowhunters, Clary Fray doesn’t check her phone messages. Evident with in the first few minutes of the episode.

“Oh Simon, I’ve got so much to tell you, so sorry I don’t seem to have the ability to listen to voicemail.”

I may have embellished the quote a little.

Oh but she does eventually actually listen to the voicemails, the many voicemails, that Simon left on her phone. And it’s what–days–weeks–later?

Awake by Natasha Preston β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

9781492618522_35ba1Scarlett Garner doesn’t remember anything before the age of fourβ€”but a car accident changes everything. She starts to remember pieces of a past that frighten her. A past her parents hid from her…and a secret that could get her killed.

Awake has a lot of problems. Let’s start here:

Shadowhunters Ep 6 β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

shadowhunters ep 6Ugh. I suppose I can’t just leave my review of Shadowhunters Episode 6Β asΒ Ugh.

The acting–as usual–was terrible. And because I don’t care to relive it all just to review it. Let’s just leave it at: I used to think it was the writing and now I know it’s the acting.

REVIEW: Shadowhunters Ep 5 β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†

4eacd9b29257141cfb9c99a9fd172d0fThis… was the worst episode of Shadowhunters thatΒ I’ve seen yet. Where do I begin here?

I guess I’ll start with the setting. The Institute. The mysterious institute of–what exactly? Because that hasn’t really been explained or revealed in the TV show. Oh, we’ve seen some random “girl” training with Hodge (but seriously the actress looked well into her thirties–aren’t these supposed to be teens?), but other than that the “Institute” is just a bunch of computer screens.

REVIEW: Shadowhunters Eps 2-4 β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

5208aa49-4e70-4a05-be81-dc7ce901e341Let’s just save ourselves the time and do a bulk review to catch ourselves up, shall we? Yes, I gave ShadowhuntersΒ threeΒ stars. But it’s for episode two through four, so I’m really judging close to three hours of content.

This is Where it Ends β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

2452912310:00 a.m.
The principal of Opportunity, Alabama’s high school finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.

10:02 a.m.
The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.

10:03
The auditorium doors won’t open.

10:05
Someone starts shooting.
Told over the span of 54 harrowing minutes from four different perspectives, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.

This is Where it EndsΒ is an insult to all the victims of school shootings, a morbidly intriguing topic given the psychology behind the act which is incredibly complex and certainly not to be taken lightly.

Shadowhunters Ep 1 β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

shadowhunters-series-premiereOkay, so FreeForm’s ShadowhuntersΒ started a few weeks ago, and I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. It feels like a well-budgeted b-film and–not surprisingly–I kind of like that charm about it. But that’s not why you’re reading this review.

So I didn’t read the books, that’s an important lead out here. I have only Tumblr based fandom knowledge. I know going in that there are angels, demons, vampires, etc. and that humans are calledΒ mundanes.
