  • Reading STATISTICS because they’re cool
  • BLOGGING stuff as a newbie in 2016
  • FAVOURITES and obsessions founded in 2016
  • Other GENERAL life stuff of 2016 because ~occasionally~, my life isn’t buried in books

This thriller YA is Scandal meets Veronica Mars.

Sixteen-year-old Tess Kendrick has spent her entire life on her grandfather’s ranch. But when her estranged sister Ivy uproots her to D.C., Tess is thrown into a world that revolves around politics and power. She also starts at Hardwicke Academy, the D.C. school for the children of the rich and powerful, where she unwittingly becomes a fixer for the high school set, fixing teens’ problems the way her sister fixes their parents’ problems.

And when a conspiracy surfaces that involves the family member of one of Tess’s classmates, love triangles and unbelievable family secrets come to light and life gets even more interesting—and complicated—for Tess.

Perfect for fans of Pretty Little Liars and Heist Society, readers will be clamoring for this compelling teen drama with a political twist.


It was a bit of a slow start but the situation was very mysterious and definitely intriguing. The plot kept me engaged, although it could be dense sometimes and I needed to reread passages. It’s just a lot to take in. Despite being very plot driven and twisty, I found that there was great development of characters and relationships.

Shadowhunters: season 2 premiere thoughts // Adaptation reviews

Hey hey!

I’m back with another Shadowhunters related post. I’ve decided to only share my thoughts on “important episodes” rather than every single one because I know a lot of people aren’t fans of the books and with 20 episodes in season 2, your feed would be full of them. I promise I’ll talk about something other than Shadowhunters for a very long time.

If you didn’t know, The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare has gotten another chance of an adaptation, this time in the form of a TV show. Thus far, I haven’t been impressed with the show, but we shall see what season 2 brings. Honestly, I can’t believe it got renewed with 20 EPISODES! Today’s post is just going to be a collection of my thoughts whilst watching the season 2 premiere from start to end. Very informal.

WARNING: this post will contain spoilers of season 1 of the show and the season 2 premiere (of course). These are my honest, personal thoughts on this episode and it you can’t stand anything negative said about this show, it would be a good idea not to read this post.
