Top Ten Favorite TV Shows

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I don’t spend a lot of time watching TV series (maybe 5 episodes max each week) and yet I had trouble only listing 10 TV shows. I decided to only list the ones I’m currently watching and not favorites like Gilmore Girls and Friends which ended a long time ago. If you want to know what other shows (and movies) I watch you can check out my profile on trakt.tv!

Wreck This Journal #4

I haven’t been working on my journal for a while now but I’m currently in a reading slump and thought it would be a good idea to pick it up again. What better thing to do on a rainy day than wrecking a journal when you don’t feel like reading!^^

That’s how the journal looked like before I started working on it. Its spine is broken and the whole journal is slowly falling apart. It didn’t wanted to hold it together with tape because I’ve only started and it might get thicker over the time. That’s why I chose to bind it with a thread that’s pretty loose:

Series: Shattered Sea #1

Summary:

Prince Yarvi has vowed to regain a throne he never wanted. But first he must survive cruelty, chains, and the bitter waters of the Shattered Sea. And he must do it all with only one good hand.

Born a weakling in the eyes of his father, Yarvi is alone in a world where a strong arm and a cold heart rule. He cannot grip a shield or swing an axe, so he must sharpen his mind to a deadly edge.

Gathering a strange fellowship of the outcast and the lost, he finds they can do more to help him become the man he needs to be than any court of nobles could.

But even with loyal friends at his side, Yarvi finds his path may end as it began—in twists, and traps, and tragedy.

Genre:

Series: The Queen of the Tearling #1

Summary:

On her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, raised in exile, sets out on a perilous journey back to the castle of her birth to ascend her rightful throne. Plain and serious, a girl who loves books and learning, Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, the vain and frivolous Queen Elyssa. But though she may be inexperienced and sheltered, Kelsea is not defenseless: Around her neck hangs the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power; and accompanying her is the Queen’s Guard, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus. Kelsea will need them all to survive a cabal of enemies who will use every weapon—from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic—to prevent her from wearing the crown.

Despite her royal blood, Kelsea feels like nothing so much as an insecure girl, a child called upon to lead a people and a kingdom about which she knows almost nothing. But what she discovers in the capital will change everything, confronting her with horrors she never imagined. An act of singular daring will throw Kelsea’s kingdom into tumult, unleashing the vengeance of the tyrannical ruler of neighboring Mortmesne: the Red Queen, a sorceress possessed of the darkest magic. Now Kelsea will begin to discover whom among the servants, aristocracy, and her own guard she can trust.

But the quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny has only just begun—a wondrous journey of self-discovery and a trial by fire that will make her a legend…if she can survive.
