See Ya'll In The New Year!


Hey Ya'll! It's going to be quite this way for the next month. I just wanted to pop it and wish you and yours a very Happy Holiday and abundantly prosperous New Year. 

With work and daily life, I'm finding it a bit stressing to attempt to post but I am reading and enjoying some new TV shows. I'll start posting again in January with reviews for both the books I read, shows I watched and all the others little thangs I want to start posting to this blog. Technically, we will still be a review blog but I just wanted to add a bit more to what we do you know and I dang sure don't want to change the blogs name, lols. 

I'll still be around social media...limited anyways. Mostly on Instagram (personal and blog) and Snapchat (Tarrelle Elba). Wonder how I came up with that name? Well....My middle name and someday I will meet and marry Idris Elba, lols!  

Anyhoos, see ya (here) in 2018!

Movie Review: Thor Ragnarok & Tuesday Jams #185





So I saw Thor: Ragnarok and it was good..and funny. I wasn't expecting the funnies, I really wasn't but I'm glad the director added them in. So basically, Thor along with his brother Loki have to save Asgard from their power crazy sister Hela, who just happens to be the Goddess of Death. Dad never told him nor Loki about Hela.

But we had that whole Loki is not your blood brother thing going on so....

Seems dear ol dad is good at keeping the secrets.

What's the take from this third installment of Thor? Welp, Thor and Loki seem to get along or do they? because towards the end when Loki went to grab something had me side eyeing him. But of course, we are dealing with Loki. Thor and this new Valkyrie (played by the gorgeous Tessa Thompson) have this sexual tension thangy going on or was I the only one who noticed that? The Hulk? no words man, he was just awesome as hell. And I mean the Hulk, not Banner. But mainly, Thor kinda comes into is own here and realizes his powers weren't always bound by his mighty hammer.

Anyhoo's with the added comedy skits from most everyone in the movie along with some bad ass, kick ass action, Thor Ragnarok is well worth your movie money. Much and I mean muuuccchhho better that the one before it...



This Thor is so much fun and it has that whole 80's thang going on with it. Yeah, I loved it.

And why not a #TuesdayJams to go along with this review....

AudioBook Review: Magic Bites (Kate Daniel #1) by Ilona Andrews




Title: Magic Bites | Author: Ilona Andrews | Source: Purchased | Format: (Audio Book) | Released: October 4, 2016 | Genre: Urban Fantasy| Available: BN | Goodreads | Amazon *Book cover and buy link is below

I like this one for the most part. I still feel like Kate was TSTL (too stupid to live), I mean did she really want to die? I can't say that I liked her very much, actually I didn't like her at all. When did bad-ass become mixed up with TSTL? I digress. 

Anyhoo's, Kate sets out to find out who killed her guardian Greg. During the investigation, she finds out that someone or something....is trying to start a war between The People (Vampires) and Beasts (a mixture of shape-shifters) and the story takes on from there. 

Honestly I don't see what all the fuss is about, the story for the most part is interesting. I liked the twist on the magic and paranormal world. There was also some good action here and there throughout the story but semantics I guess. 

I think the authors have a good basic formula with these characters and with this series (its still ongoing I see) but I don't think I'll be reading any further books. 

As far as the audio itself? Eh, this audio is a 9 hour #listento and that's because some chapters were like more than a hour (I can just image reading the physical book *rolls eyes*). I think it could have been shortened a bit but again semantics. I wasn't a fan of the narrator but for the most part, she did a good job. I really need for folks to start investing in dual narrators.

I'm probably the last one in the book-o-sphere to have read this book (I mean look at the release date, lols) so you know...I don't even know what I'm trying to say, lols. Anyways, if you're a fan of urban fantasy, you will probably enjoy Kate and her wanna be "snarky" self.
