Currently Watching #1

Hi everyone!

If you read my 25 Facts About Me, then you will know that I am a total TV nerd! I have a TON of shows that I watch throughout the year. No joke, I have to have a list that tells me when each show airs. If I don’t have that list then I am like a lost puppy dog.

Since I do watch quite a bit of TV, I thought that it would be fun to share with you all what I have been watching. I am definitely going to make this a series so I will only share 3 or 4 shows at a time!

The Boys (Amazon Prime Video)

Superheroes are often as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and sometimes even as revered as gods. But that’s when they’re using their powers for good. What happens when the heroes go rogue and start abusing their powers? When it’s the powerless against the super powerful, the Boys head out on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the Seven and Vought, the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. Based on the comic book series of the same name.

This is the most recent show I have finished. There is only one season so far and it’s only eight episodes, so it was super quick to get though. The Boys was adapted by Eric Kripke, who just happened to create my favorite show of all time, Supernatural! I knew once he announced this new show I was going to give it a try.

Of all the shows Kripke has created, this one has to be wildest. If you plan to watch this, please believe me when I say…The Boys is messed up. Like within the first five minutes, you will be saying “Oh my god, did that just happen? Ew.”

So yeah, it’s crazy, but it’s also SO good. I loved most (screw you Homelander) of the characters, the production is fantastic and the story will make you want to go up against the Seven!

Big Brother 21 (CBS)

In this combination of a reality series and a game show, the contestants battle it out each week to maintain their places in the house, all in the hope of claiming the $500,000 prize awarded at the end of the summer.

I’m sure most of you know what Big Brother is. This is one of the only reality shows that I watch and I look forward to it every summer. I usually get super invested each season, but unfortunately I have not liked season 21 at al. CBS picked some really awful houseguests this year. Typically I will have a favorite player, but I could honestly care less about who wins this time around

So now you’re probably like…Sadie, if you don’t like the houseguests then just stop watching. Well, I cant. I feel am obligation to finish this out since there is only one week left in this season.

I am REALLY hoping that next summer Big Brother 22 will be a hundred times better!

Breaking Bad (AMC & Netflix)

Mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher Walter White thinks his life can’t get much worse. His salary barely makes ends meet, a situation not likely to improve once his pregnant wife gives birth, and their teenage son is battling cerebral palsy. But Walter is dumbstruck when he learns he has terminal cancer. Realizing that his illness probably will ruin his family financially, Walter makes a desperate bid to earn as much money as he can in the time he has left by turning an old RV into a meth lab on wheels.

This show has been off the air for 6 years, but randomly last month, Netflix shared a teaser for a Breaking Bad movie! Of course I felt the need to rewatch the series & oh boy I am loving it! It kind of feels like I’m watching the show for the first time again because I have forgotten so much.

Breaking Bad is such a legend. It’s honestly one of the best shows I have ever watched. Between the complex characters & the gripping story, this series is truly one of a kind. I highly recommend it!

That’s all for now! The next round will be after all the fall shows have premiered. There are some new shows that I am really interested in so hopefully I will like them enough to share them with you all.

Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to do this tag. It’s one of my favorite videos to watch on Booktube. I think it’s so interesting to hear all the different opinions!

Originally created by The Book Archer

What is a popular book or series that you didn’t like?

Starting off really controversial! I have to say The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I didn’t like the writing style at all & I was bored throughout most of the story. I was so disappointed.

What is a popular book or series that everyone else seems to hate but you love?

The Selection series by Kiera Cass. I don’t necessarily LOVE these books, but I did really enjoy them. I thought they were super fun & quick reads.

What is a love triangle in a book or series where the main character ended up with the person you did not want them to end up with?

Hands down Katniss & Peeta. I didn’t even want her to *choose* Gale either. She should have ended up alone!

What is a popular book genre that you hardly reach for?

Adult fantasy. It intimidates me so much.

What is a popular or beloved character that you do not like?

Warner from the Shatter Me series. I don’t get why people like him so much. Don’t hate me for this one please!! 

Who is a popular author that you can’t seem to get into?

Sophie Kinsella. I have tried reading a few of her books, unfortunetly the writing just isn’t for me.

What is a popular book trope that you are tired of seeing?

Definitely instalove. It can be done well, but most of the time it’s over the top ridiculous.

What is a popular book or series that you have no interest in reading?

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. I have read the first two books but I have zero interest in the last two. This series is so confusing. 

What is a movie or TV show adaption of a book or series that you like more than the book/s?

Twilight for sure. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the books, but the movies were my everything as a teenager. So much nostalgia there!

I’d love to hear some of your answers to these questions!
