F.R.I.E.N.D.S Book Tag

I was not tagged by anyone this is just something that i saw a youtuber do on youtube and I thought that I would try it. As you guys all know, I love the show Friends, i'm pretty sure i can quote mostly every line. Anyways, let's start the tag.


1. Monica- The one with your favorite perfectionist.
For this one, I choose Hermione from The Harry Potter series. She always has to make good grades, studies constantly for classes and exams

2. Chandler- The one with your favorite comedic relief character.
This one goes to Kenji from The Shatter Me series, He's such a funny guy, he brings the comic relief out of any serious situation. I love him he's one of my favorite side characters.
3. Phoebe- The one with your favorite quirky character.
 This goes without saying but Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. She's incredibly quirky like Phoebe. She dances with no shoes, reads magazines upside down, wears a Lion Hat on her head to represent Griffindor.
4. Joey- The one that you wish to be a movie.
Fangirl By Rainbow Rowell, hand downs. I can see it as a indie film. I think it would easy to translate into film. The characters have to be on point. Cat is awkward and shy, Wren is outgoing, Levi is funny and loyal.
5. Rachel & Ross- The one with your OTP.
Katherine and Matthew in the Next Together. This is a new release about a couple who is reincarnated every time. Each timeline they play different people and i loved the storyline.
6. NYC- The one that takes place in a big city.
 Landline- Omaha is a big city and most of the book takes place in there.
7. Central Perk- The one with you favorite designated hang-out spot.
 The Fault In our Stars- The Funny Bones spot where it's just a giant skeleton and Hazel and Augustus are just sitting there talking.
8. Smelly Cat- The one with your favorite outcast.
Finch from All The Bright Places, I love him he's smart, loyal, funny, outgoing. His determination to always have adventures and find wonders.

9. The Friends- The one with your favorite friend group.
Paper Towns- The dynamic between the friends from Q, Radar, and Ben to Lindsay was so great. I love every scene in the car they had.

10. YOUR Friends- The one where you tag your friends!

Review: Heir of Fire

Heir of Fire Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. I think this is my favorite out of the entire series so far. I still have to read Queen of Shadows which i will get later this week. Ok, a lot of things were happening in terms of plot and characters. i'm just going to go with the storylines that I felt were important to the plot. The Celeana and Rowan storyline, i loved Rowan, i really did. He was different from Chaol and Dorian. You can tell just by the way he acts around Celena, he doesn't treat her less than him, he treats her as an equal, and pushes her to where her full potential should be. Another thing is he never wants calls her Celeana, he calls her Aelin which is her birth name. I know it's such a small detail but it's important because it shows that Rowan gives her the respect that she deserves as the queen that she. Celeana's past is finally shown to us, and i felt bad for her. From reading her past and everything she went though, her actions in the first book makes sense. The plot with Chaol and Aedion is somewhat important because basically Aedion wants to find Aelin so she can take her rightful place as queen. I love how Aedion calls her his queen. Now on to the new characters which were Manon and Sorcha. Man is one of the witches from the 13 clan. I thought she was an interesting character and i liked how their system was introduced, i liked the dragon riding. Sorcha on the other hand, was a different story i felt that i couldn't connect with her because it seemed like she was just there as a love interest for Dorian. But i guess that's what was needed in order for Dorian to do what he did in the end. I feel like this book was mostly character-driven which i liked because it shows more character development. I can't wait to read Queen of Shadows and see what happens when Celeana confronts her old master along with saving her friends. Also. Aelin and Aedion reunion :) All he wants is to see his cousin.

I recently got into the 100. I decided to check it out, i'm like  ok let's see what's so great it. i binge-watched 4 episodes a day. 4 episodes guys. There are 13 episodes in the first season. i'm up to the season 1 finale now. Bellarke shipper, I shipped them since the beginning. Not a fan of Finn, and he's not even in the books at all. I don't know why they made him a filler character for Clarke. Like, no you don't deserve her.

Riley & Farkle - Everything Has Changed [LOVE STORY 1x01-2x22]

Article about being In love and being in love with the idea of love
I thought this was an interesting article to read because it talks about the difference between being in love with someone and being in love with the idea of love. This is mostly seen in relationships. Now i'm not currently in a relationship but that doesn't mean I don't know  about them. In my experience, from stories that I've heard from friends, family, and best friends i believe that the idea of being in love with love is being in a relationship for the benefits, basically expectations that you have that are met by your significant other. They call you all the time, send you flowers, things like that. But when they stop doing that, the person does not find them attractive any more. The other type of relationship is actually being in love with the person that you are with, accepting them for who they are, the good and bad side. The person is actually wanting to hear about their partner's thoughts, opinions, fears and feelings. I believe that is what actually being in love with someone is.
