Wow, I haven’t posted anything on here since January. Anyway, with the second season of Once Upon A Time having finished on the 12th, there are some things that I didn’t quite get. The things are pretty summed up in the two links I’m posting.
I know this must be such a weird post to follow such a serious post that I just posted, but I think it sorta relates because both deal with death. Anyway, this post is a book review for the book Fracture by Megan Miranda. Please make sure you go to the link in order to get a brief synopsis of the book. Well, I finished the book last week and I thought that the premise of the book was a good one. However, I found the book a little bit hard to read. What I mean by that is that the author left so many loose ends. For example, the author doesn’t really explain what the ability the main character and another character have or how they came to have it. I mean, the main character does try to figure it out but the reasons she comes up are less than satisfactory. Another loose end was the actual ending of the book. I won’t give away what happens in the end, but to me, it feels extremely rushed. It seems to me that the author was trying to write an acceptable “cliff hanging” ending, but ran out of time before she had to turn in her book to her publisher. There are a few other loose ends in my opinion. In addition to the loose ends, I think that some of the characters, especially the main character, are undeveloped. I couldn’t completely relate to any of the characters. Plus, quite a few of the characters seem flip back and forth between one personality and another. Anyway, as a whole, I didn’t particularly care for the book. I think that the book was a good first try for the author but it just fell short. I would only it one and half stars out of a possible five.
You know I have been thinking about the shooting in Connecticut that happened this past Friday. While I think that the deaths of children and of teachers are tragic, I’m a bit pissed that the only time that the issue of gun control, or any hot topic issue, happens when something like the shootings in Connecticut or at Virginia Tech and Columbine High School. Personally, I think that hot topic issues like gun control should be discussed year-round as opposed to responses to tragedies involving guns.
I just finished re-watching the second season of Lost Girl on DVD. And is it just me, or does it seem like the last few episodes of the second season dragged on, like the writers of the show were just writing episodes to make the necessary twenty-two episode minimum? Because that’s what it felt like to me. To me, it felt like the last few episodes were just put there to help past the time until the Garuda came without putting in any substantial plot into the episodes. Anyway, that’s just what I think.
So, I’ve seen the new Brad Pitt Chanel #5 commercial and I’m confused by it. I don’t really get why Brad Pitt is the one advertising a perfume, especially one as iconic as Chanel #5. I mean, I can understand if he was advertising his own perfume, but like I said…Chanel #5? The only thing that I think could have made the commercial work is if he was dressed as Louis from Interview With The Vampire and it was advertised back when the movie came out. Either that, or change Brad out to another celebrity or change what was said.
So, I wanted to post this before the final three of season 10 of Project Runway are revealed. As we’ve seen in last week’s episode of Project Runway, Sonjie was eliminated and the final four were revealed to be Melissa, Fabio, Christopher, and Dmitry. Personally, I think that the two shoe-ins are Melissa and Christopher. The reason I think that is because they both have distinctive points-of-view and they have consistently been safe or in the top three. However, with Fabio and Dmitry, I’m not sure which one will fill the last spot in the final three. The reason I say that is because both have pros and cons to them. Both make excellent and well-tailored clothes. However, with Fabio, he has no definitive point-of-view when it comes to design. And with Dmitry, I have a feeling that he is a one-trick pony when it comes to designs. He reminds me of Laura Bennett from season 3, who if you’ve been watching Project Runway for a while know that she was known for predominately making clothes that she would wear herself. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
I know it’s a week since the Once Upon A Time season 2 premiere, but I wanted to get my thoughts out before the second episode airs tonight at 7:00 Hawaii time. I have a lot of questions dealing with the episode. A majority of the questions are pretty much summed up in the following articles. However, I have additional questions.
- How did Mulan and Prince Philip know how long they were frozen? Does time work the same in Fairytale Land?
- How can the Wraith medallion be in two different worlds at once? Or is there more than one medallion that can control the wraith? Because we see Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin holding onto it the “real” world while we also see Mulan put the medallion in a pouch and gives it to Sleeping Beauty/Aurora.
- Can the Dark One control creatures like wraiths?

I just wanted to write a book review for Rachel Caine’s Last Breath. You can find a summary here. I found that the idea of the draugr being an predator for the typical vampire that we think of. I mean, I didn’t even know what draugrs were until I read about it in Last Breath. Anyway, I found it so interesting to think that in this world, vampires have a natural predator. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.
