The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones / Shadowhunters

Here are random stuff from reminders, what transpired today and my second TV Series review. DISCLAIMER: My personal review for this TV series is based on my personal character preferences or biases, book recognition, and movie adaptation. I wasn’t paid to make a review for the said program. Ino downloaded Shadowhunters (The Mortal instrument’s City of Bones TV series) recently and we’re supposed to be on our 4th episode. We haven’t watched it yet because we were sidetracked by other things. I think he got intrigued by it because we’ve seen the The Mortal instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare…

I Am Divergent

This entry was originally posted on my WordPress account on March 29, 2015.   First of all, I’d like to thank Raymond for sharing this Divergent test! I just woke up when I answered this test and I’m quite surprised to see this result. I know that the story is fiction and I’m probably a mixture of everything. Still, I was hoping for a real faction that I belong to in this dystopian themed book. I’m a Divergent? A mixture of an Erudite and Dauntless? Wait what? I thought I’d be under Candor or Dauntless but Erudite? WHAT? Haha.. Darn. I…

Re: That Thing Called Tadhana

Para sa akin, isa sa mga nakaka-inis kapag nanunuod ka ng pelikula ay yung maririnig mo sa mga tao na maganda ang pelikula. Bakit? Kasi mag-e-expect ka. Mag-e-expect ka ng may mangyayari, na may pasabog, na meron kang aabangan at hindi mo lang makikita yung trailer na paulit-ulit na pinapalabas sa TV. Mag-e-expect ka na may dahilan kaya pinapakita yung trailer na yun. Isa ako sa mga taong huli na nang makita ang pelikulang, That Thing Called Tadhana. WARNING: Content contains SPOILERS Feeling ko buong Pilipinas, buong opisina, at lahat ng tao sa paligid ko ay napanuod na ang pelikulang…

Re: Delirium TV Movie

This post was originally posted on my WordPress account on January 27, 2015   The curiosity killed the cat and I’m the cat. I just finished watching the pilot episode of Delirium. Yep, thanks to Hulu and the torrent gods, I was able to watch it even if it was released for a limited time only.   Watch out for spoilers! I rate this pilot episode ♡♡♡♡ hearts and not stars because I don’t have stars in my Android keyboard. 🙂 I totally agree with Marissa M’s comments. I actually wished that I never discovered this pilot episode. Delirium’s story…

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

  This was originally posted on my Tumblr account on January 25, 2015. This is not a paid review.   After reading Bloodlines, a spin-off of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy, I discovered dystopian fiction which is a new genre under the Young Adult section in the bookstore. I’ve been hooked in dystopian fiction these days. It was quite a different genre. It was new and fast paced. The characters portrayed in most of the series aren’t damsels in distress. It features post apocalyptic stories with a hint of romance. I started reading the Matched trilogy by Allie Condie, followed by…

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green (Movie)

I’m never a sucker for melodramatic movies. I guess it was just not my kind of thing. I don’t like to cry when I’m watching a movie. I don’t. I don’t want to because I know that I can especially when my hormones trigger my emotions. I don’t like to think about cancer or anything that has to do with someone dying because of a disease may it be about a girl, a boy, a man or a woman, or whoever. I just don’t like watching people die even if it’s just for entertainment. I guess I haven’t told anyone…
