Weekly Wrap-up!


I had a really slow week. I didn't get to any new books BUT I did watch some pretty fantastic new shows and saw a music video that I loved...

I started the week off with an Amazon Original series called...

Sneaky Pete
Sneaky Pete is so far a one season, 10 episode series staring Bryan Cranston - who is also on the show producers - and Giovanni Ribisi about a con-man recently out of prison who pretends to be his former cell-mate, Pete, in order to con money out of Pete's long-lost family. 

Add it to your IMDB watchlist here:
And watch it on Amazon here:

You can also watch this show on Amazon FireTV! And I'm fairly certain on any Amazon device or the Amazon app on others. This show is available FREE with an Amazon Prime account, but you can watch the first episode free without.

The show started out a little slow, but it had me hooked within the first couple episodes! I completed the series within two days and I am looking forward to the second season... as it does end on sort of a cliffhanger! 

I gave this show a 9 stars on IMDB, which I am converting to a 4.5 out of 5



I also watched the first season of another Amazon Original show...

Just Add Magic is about a group of girls that discover the wonderful world of magic when one of them finds a magic cookbook in her grandmother's attic. But not all is well... they quickly learn that magic comes with consequences... consequences that may have lead to her grandmother's inability to communicate with her or anyone else. They have to unravel the mystery, discover the truth in the past, and keep out of the way of a possible villain.

Add it to your watchlist here:

Just Add Magic is quite juvenile in its story, development, dialogue, ect, but I very much enjoyed it! I love witch and magic EVERYTHING so I enjoyed this twist on a witch story. It actually reminded me of Charmed, especially the first episode! It's like a younger Charmed! :) 

I haven't rated this on IMDB yet, but I give this series a 4 stars out of 5!


AND FINALLY,

TRYOE SIVAN's new video for "Heaven"... my favorite on the album!


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


OH! I DID read something this week... 


Rated M!
Edward wasn't the only vampire to find Bella's scent mouthwatering. A delay in her journey meant she never made it to Forks, but she did become a vampire…in the worst possible way. What sort of a newborn will she make without the Cullens to guide her, and what will she think of Edward when they meet? No rape or graphic violence. Edward & Bella HEA...eventually. COMPLETE.

This took me ALL week long to read... it's not a long fic, at all, but I kept putting it down. Which is odd. I read her fic, Once Bitten, last week and I couldn't put it down. It was far longer... longer chapter and MORE chapters, but I read that one within a few days. This one though, I kept putting down, only reading a little at a time. So in the end, I def enjoyed Once Bitten more. That was her first fic and it has a very similar theme, Bella gets turned into a vampire in the first book, a book one AU, but it was more detailed and gripped me more... here's that one:

It was so good!! If you like AUs, I highly suggest it. It's a LONG ass read, but beautifully written and very enjoyable! I had trouble putting it down to sleep! It flips the script of the entire series... what if Edward had NOT been able to resist Bella's singer's blood in biology class, what if he bit and turned her the first day they met? 


Rated M!
Edward finally meets the love of his existence but can't resist her singer's blood. Can their fairytale love survive a horror beginning or will Bella's newborn grief, an outraged wolf pack, and the offended Volturi deny them their happily ever after? COMPLETE with a future take or two to come.
