Doctor who · Tv shows

The Doctors will return On Christmas

Welcome friends, can we please take a moment to discuss the season finale of Doctor who?!? I know I haven’t been doing recaps this season of TV shows like I used to, but I’m working on getting things back up to old standards. With that being said let’s get to it here is your 

************* SPOILER ALART************

So as we all (should) know by now this is season is the last for our doctor, both our companions, and our (not so) beloved writer. Ok now I get that it’s an unpopular opinion but I really am not sad to see moffet go. I do however have some mixed feelings on the loss of your current doctor! 

This season has been a beautifully confusing but consistent rollercoaster of two parter/ multi-episode story lines that blended together in a Tennetesk season. With last weeks return of the one and only Master, and his team up with his future Regeneration Missy, this week promised to be a beautiful disaster for the doctor and his friends. Specifically Bill who they turned into a cyber man. 

While I personally felt this episode was long and drawn out, we did get some lose ends tied up. Missy’s conflicted feelings of affection for the doctor, combined with her past self pushing for her to return to her life of evil made for a head spinning Ride of will she or won’t she. In the end the good in her prevailed ( as did her crush on the doctor) but her change of heart came a little to late and her counterpart the master refuses to let her aid his mortal enemy and kills her.  The doctor blew up all the cyber men, triggering the start of his regeneration cycle. Between the Doctors hissy of not wanting to be a new person, and the revilation that Bill finally get to be with the Lady in the water, who saved her after the doctor killed the cybermen, the final 20 minutes defiantly hit you right in the feels. 

The doctor relived all his companions giving us a glimps of Amy, Rose, and of course River, but then something unexpected happens Capaldi runs into the “Original” Doctor, played by David Bradly who revives the roll that was originated by William hartnell. 

We go out on a heart breaking identity crisis as he runs into his former self, leaving whovians everywhere on pins and needles as we desporatly await the announcement of who the next doctor might be!

The Love of Poetry In Motion.

Nobody likes having to pretend to be something their not, especially around the people who supposedly love them the most, but for Samantha McAlister pretending was everyday life.
When Samantha found herself in the company of some unexpected friends, ones that her old friends might not approve of, shes faced with a difficult decision. Be true to herself and who she wants to be and be shunned by her old friends, or follow the crowd and lose this new fascinating and beautiful world of poetry, the feeling of sanity, and the boy of her dreams forever.
I loved this book, it was fun, and different! Tamara Stone shed a light on what its like to live, and hide Obsessive Compulsive Disorder like no one else. Showing us that something you’ve gotta just be true to yourself and show the world who you are no flaws and all, and trust that the people that matter and the ones that will stick by you through all the hard stuff!

The Fandom Never Dies

Welcome back friend and fellow book lovers. Now let me be 100% honest when i say I was super reluctant when I got this book. I’ve only read one other book by Rainbow Rowell and I have to be honest in saying that it really wasnt one of my favorites. That being said when I saw Fangirl I was intrigued and torn. This book speaks to my soul on a deeper level than my love of books because my inner fangirl is strong. Between the books I read and the shows i want the fandom life is strong with this one.

I can defiantly say that I relate to this book and a deep level. Cather really is my spirit animal, from her want to take care of her family to her love of a “fictional world” to her awkward and cringe worthy experiences with the opposite sex, and school life. College can be a strange and scary place for everyone, especially when you’re living in a dorm with people you’ve never met before.

Fangirl really illistrats the struggles of growing up and experiencing the real world outside of your own computer screen. It beautifully illistrates the horrible feelings of being awkward and shy and painfully new to the dating game.

Rainbow Rowell Truly hit it out of the park with this one, from one fangirl to fangirls everywhere, life love and friendship are really shown well in this one. For sure a must read!!!

What did you think? Did you like it? Whatever you felt about this book be sure to let me know. and Come back in a few days when i reveal with May’s book of the month is!! thanks guys!
