Ms Marvel Episode Three – Thoughts and Reactions

We have reached the halfway point of Ms. Marvel season one and a lot has happened in episode three to really open up the story and tell us what to expect, what could happen next and where exactly we are going with Kamala’s story and I know I keep saying it, but I’m super enjoying it, guys. I’ve already been a huge Ms. Marvel fan for ages. I finally got a new shirt this week – took forever to get here – and I managed to track down Ms. Marvel in Avengers Campus at work and I was totally stoked.

Let’s jump into episode 3!

I’m Stuck in An Endless Loop of Re-Watching and Re-Reading!

Recently, I’ve been watching Criminal Minds for the first time. I’m a huge true crime kick – I’ve always been fascinated by it and read a lot of true crime novels growing up since it was something my mom read and young adult novels weren’t totally a thing for me growing up. I’ve been pretty much exclusively listening to True Crime Obsessed, Once Upon a Crime and Crime Junkie. I knew Criminal Minds was this insanely popular show, spanning years and years of new episodes and stories, and I fell in love with it.

I’m currently on season 12 and I had to take a break from it. Partly because, I mean, well, I’m in season 12 but also because it was getting overwhelming for me to watch and I almost dreaded watching it. The last few episodes that Derek Morgan, played by Shemar Moore, was in before he left was so emotional for me and I had to stop. Then Aaron Hotchner disappeared off the show due to some issues with the actor and I just couldn’t handle it. So I decided to take a break!

And I went to an old staple that I’ve watched about a million times – The Vampire Diaries.

And it really got me thinking about re-watching and why we do it so much.

My Husband and I Got Matching Nerdy Tattoos!

Hello my friends! If you know anything about me, or have followed me over the past ten years, you know that I have a fair amount of tattoos and that most of them are nerd related in some way. I have a ton of Harry Potter tattoos, some Mortal Instruments, a Divergent, Vampire Academy, Six of Crows, Lunar Chronicles, Captain Marvel, Star Wars, Studio Ghibli and so many more. I love getting tattoos and I love my tattoos and I love showing my love for these stories on my body permanently.

My husband and I had talked about getting matching tattoos when we got married and one of the ideas that I had had was the wedding rune from the Shadowhunter chronicles. I didn’t think that my husband would go for that LOL! He attempted to read the first Mortal Instruments book ages ago and couldn’t get into it and I wouldn’t want him to get something on his body that he didn’t have a special connection to. Maybe one day…

Ms Marvel Episode Two – Thoughts and Reactions!

Hello friends! Happy Thursday! Today has been a great day for me and part of that is watching the newest episodes of Obi Wan Kenobi and, of course, Ms Marvel. I’ve been eagerly awaiting each new thing when it comes to Ms Marvel and am so excited for this show. Tomorrow, the husband and I are heading to Disneyland and California Adventure to play in the parks (since we are most often there just for work) and my GOAL is to find Ms Marvel, the character, and take photos with her and to check out the props from the show that are in the Avengers store!

Let’s jump into this week’s episode, shall we?

Short N’Sweet Book Review: Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur

Welcome to the Short N’ Sweet Book Review! For the ten years that I’ve been reviewing books on this blog, I’ve written long, wordy reviews that, let’s be honest, not a lot of people are probably reading. I’ve recently  decided to shorten those reviews and get straight to the point – what is this book about, who wrote it, where you can find and a short review on what I loved, liked and maybe thought could be better.

Today’s review is a super fun and sweet queer rom-com between a logical actuary and a dreamy, hopeful astrology lover, Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur.
