Sunday Post #72: TV Shows Take Over!


Welcome to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, where I talk about what is going on in life and the blog, and show you all the bookish things I got that week! Let's get started!


Participant 2015 - Square Button
So you may (or may not) have noticed that I've been really lacking in the posting department... ooops! And I have no real excuse for it. I did join Camp NaNo this month, though. So instead of writing reviews, I've been writing a story! :D I know, still no excuse, LOL. Hopefully I'll have some stuff up this week. Anyway, Camp NaNo, I'm actually really, really behind. I've written about 4,000 words out of my targeted goal of 15,000 for the month. But I figured if I write 1,000 everyday until the end of the month, I can still make my goal! (maybe? lol) I don't know, wish me luck!

Another thing I've been doing is watching a lot of TV... a lot! Every once in a while I'd watch an episode of Modern Family, but I've never really sat down to watch the whole show. I was watching and episode just the other day and I thought to myself, "I obviously enjoy this show, love the family dynamic, and it literally makes me laugh out loud, so why haven't I seen it from the beginning?" And so I started watching it. It's just so funny!

One show I've watched since the beginning and has just gotten better over time is Agents of SHIELD. Oh my gods, it's amazing! It's just gotten so much better after The Winter Soldier when SHIELD just totally and completely fell! If you are a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe like I am and have not see this show, you need to get on it, like yesterday! The thing with this show, though, is that I hadn't seen any of the episodes since the mid season break when Agent Carter was on (another show I haven't seen but absolutely must!) and I don't know why! I finally got all caught up this week, binge watching 6 episodes back to back and OH MY GODS do I regret not catching up sooner! IT WAS AMAZING! It was like Winter Soldier/Hydra all over again! And then the whole things with the Inhumans... I cannot tell you how excited I was about this! I don't read the comic books, so I had no idea what the Inhumans were, but I did know about the movie Marvel has slated to come out in the future. So naturally, I looked it up and it just so happens that the Inhumans are tied into Agents of SHIELD in this second season! That has me really excited because I started to wonder how/if it was all going to tie in with the movie as well. (That would be so cool!) Anyway, Agents is one of my most favorite shows and I cannot wait for more episodes (especially when Age of Ultron comes around, eeeeep!)!

On Pinterest:

You all know about my addiction to Pinterest... it's just one of the greatest places on the internet where you can just hoard all sorts of things you love! Well, about 2-3 weeks ago I created a new board where I post all of my book reviews from this blog. That has actually been kind of a hassle so I've only been doing it a couple of batches at at time.

Follow Liliana's board Books, Books, Books! on Pinterest.

And then this week I created a new Music board! :D Weeee! It's mostly (for now) Panic! At The Disco and Fall Out Boy 'cause those are my favorite bands :)

And my love for reapers continues! I also think there's some mythology involved, but we'll see ;) Thanks so much to Booktrope and Netgalley for The Reaper's Daughter! I also cannot wait to read The Neptune Challenge! I LOVED the first book and am super excited for this one! Thank you Polly! :D And Terminal... guys, Ellie Jordan is one of the best series I have ever read! I wasn't expecting this book till like May, so when J.L. Bryan sent me the ARC yesterday, I was beyond excited! He always seems to show up just when I'm in a reading slump and need something to read! And I actually started reading it last night :D SO good! Thanks so much Jeff!
