Your favourite TV Show is CANCELLED!

It’s very difficult to love a TV Show as of 2015. Obviously this has been going on for quite some time but recently it’s getting worse. These networks hype up a premiere series and before season 1 is even over, it is cancelled. It’s really annoying for people like me who enjoy the continuation of a TV series over movies.

I have gone back to older series that I haven’t looked at with at least 3 seasons. I get that the networks want super ratings, but I’m pretty sure they get low ratings because people feel like it would be cancelled anyway. And what exactly are low ratings? For different networks, this means different numbers because I have seen some pretty shitty TV shows with longevity. Even if a new series looks promising, I will wait until it is picked up for another season, but by that time I may not even care.
Gone to soon(These are just some of my personal favourites):
Stalker w/ Maggie Q & Dylan McDermott
Witches of East End
Dracula
Mike & Molly
American Odyssey
Star Crossed
Covert Affairs
Cristela
Gracepoint
The Whispers
Agent X

There are also a lot I have been meaning to start, but what’s the point now?
So maybe it’s back to movies for this TV junkie or maybe some foreign series?

Book Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

*CONTAINS SPOILERS*

This was definitely one of my best reads of 2015. This book was plotted and written so well, I could not put it down. I suspected everyone as the murderer.
Rachel, a mentally unstable drunk rides the train to and from work daily, only she doesn’t work. She just hangs out in libraries and such to make her roommate believe she is working. There is a specific spot where the train stops and Rachel sees the same people and enacts stories in her head about them, who they are, what they’re doing etc. As the story moves along, the reader may have a love/hate relationship with Rachel. One day something is different from what she sees daily and immediately Rachel knows something is wrong. She plays nosy and ends up in the middle of a murder case.

Happy Reading 🙂

Book Review: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn






A mother and two daughters were brutally murdered in what was suspected to be some kind of cult killing. A 7 year old sister Libby survived and her older brother is in jail for the murders which she claimed to witness. The novel is told from Libby Day’s point of view years later, with flashback chapters throughout the book. Personally I didn’t care for Libby’s tone in telling the story. I understand that seeing your family brutally murdered will leave you damaged for life but I just couldn’t deal with her attitude towards people around her who were nice to her. Ben, the older brother is a very interesting character as his teenage life unfolds in the book. The plot was impressive and well written, I can’t say that the climax “wowed” me at all. I would recommend.


Happy Reading 🙂
