Hello people, How are you? Firstly, I would like to say thank you to everyone that has supported my blog since the beginning and to the new followers, as well.
I had almost a month of holidays from university, so I have had a lot of leisure time lately. Most of this time was spent reading and watching those series that were on my list of to-watch and to-read, so I did take advantage of my time . . . almost. The only thing that I do regret is that I did not spend the time that I wanted to spend in my blog, such as writing blog posts more frequently, for instance. So, I’m sorry for that.
Having said that, here they are:
Divorce: This HBO series is amazing! Such a good performance by Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church. The story is full of drama and comedy as well. A very good one.
Sarah Jessica Parker returns to HBO in the new comedy series, Divorce. Parker stars as Frances, a woman who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage, and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought.
- Big little lies: This one is a 10 of 10. I read the book a few weeks ago and I can say that the limited TV series makes an excellent job. Despite the many extra things and details added to the show, It is totally worth-watching. From the incredible soundtrack to the amazing performances by these great actresses (Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley). There’s a mistery murder the day of the Trivia night at the public school, that leads to confussion and doubt of who can be the murderer. I highly recommend both the book and and limited series. One of my favourite so far.
In the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, nothing is quite as it seems. Doting moms, successful husbands, adorable children, beautiful homes: What lies will be told to keep their perfect worlds from unraveling?
Told through the eyes of three mothers – Madeline, Celeste and Jane – Big Little Lies paints a picture of a town fueled by rumors and divided into the haves and have-nots, exposing the conflicts, secrets and betrayals that compromise relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and friends and neighbors.
- Stranger Things: Also a good one. I wanted to give it a try because I have heard many positive comments about it. I know that this series is a bit old since first season was published last year and season 2 is scheduled for this autumn. I bet that most of you must have already watched it. In my opinion, the series is very good and creative; I also liked its vintage look. I cannot wait for season two!
When a young boy disappears, his mother, a police chief, and his friends must confront terrifying forces in order to get him back.
Here is the trailer of season Two:
- 13 Reasons Why: Here we are . . . The popular these days. One day, I decided to give it a try as everyone was talking about it. I, too, bet that most of you must have watched it already. It is a very sad story indeed. A girl, tired of being bullied, harassed and many other things (Not Spoilers given; I promise), decides to commit suicide. Nevertheless, she left behind 13 tapes with 13 reasons why she decided to do so. In my opinion, It was an excellent series which shows the problems, nowadays, teenagers live with at schools. However, I have seen negative comments about it as well. By the way, after finishing watching the series, I decided to read the book immediately since I was moved by the series. A ten of ten.
Follows teenager Clay Jensen, in his quest to uncover the story behind his classmate and crush, Hannah, and her decision to end her life.
- A Series of Unfortunate Events: A very good story; I liked it. I wanted to watch this series because, as I said in my other post, I want to read this series of 13 books (I haven’t yet) because they look interesting. The story is very funny and creative; the first season contains the first 4 books, so there are, at least, 2 seasons left. Nevertheless, I did not feel connected with it until episode 3 or 4; It did not convince me at first.
After the loss of their parents in a mysterious fire, the three Baudelaire children face trials and tribulations attempting to uncover dark family secrets.
- Riverdale: I love this series, It is very entertaining and interesting. First season hasn’t finished yet, so I recommend you to watch it until its end. Another unknown-murderer story, full of drama, comedy and thriller. I Highly recommended.
A subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small town life, the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade.
