6 Riveting TV Shows That Will Shake You Out Of Your End-of-Series Slump

6 Riveting TV Shows That Will Shake You Out Of Your End-of-Series Slump

We all have that time when we end a TV show and we're in search of a new one, so here are six shows that will get you out of the blues when you finish a show.

There is always a time when our favorite television shows come to an end. I know in the past year or so, there have been so many shows that I loved have ended, and it put me into mood where I only want to rewatch my favorite episodes of those series. If there's anyone that gets obssessed over TV shows, it's me. It takes something attention-grabbing to get me into a show, but once that happens, I'm hooked. Here are six TV shows that will get you out of your end-of-series slump.

1. Backstage

"Backstage" is something I didn't really expect to like. Even though it seems like it is mostly for younger audiences (being on the Disney Channel), I really enjoy it. A performing arts high school focusing on dance, art and music can bring along drama and romance in this sweet-but-sour series. Being easily relatable with modern high school events and drama, this show will not fail to amaze you. Not to mention that the actors sing and dance really well, even in their teens!

2. The Shannara Chronicles

This show is for someone who just came from a fantasy TV show slump. "The Shannara Chronicles" came back with its second season this October after a year-long break. Based off the book series, this show follows Wil, an ordinary human in a world with elves, dwarves, druids and more, who steps up alongside an elf to save the Four Lands. Will they survive on their own, or will they have to recruit some help on the way?

3. Riverdale

Most people have probably already heard of this show since it's all the rage now. The CW just can't stop coming up with the best television shows that get an audience thinking and impatiently awaiting the next episode. In a small town where everyone knows everyone, it won't be hard to find the murder of one of the town's most cherished high school students, right? We have the athlete, the prep, the outcast and the writer who won't stop until the killer in "Riverdale" is found.

4. Shadowhunters

To be honest, this show isn't for everyone, especially the people that read "The Mortal Instruments" book series and are very critical about book-to-TV adaptions. I've got to say, though, this one is a keeper. Clary Fray, a young woman who thinks she has her entire life figured out, is ready to take on the world, but when she finds out that who she thought she was is a lie, her world gets turned upside-down. With a third season on the way, "Shadowhunters" will make you cry one minute and shiver in fear during the next.

5. Stranger Things

Take this advice from someone who loves thrillers and mystery: "Stranger Things" will take you on a journey like none other. Imagine an '80s setting as we follow a set of nerdy middle schoolers whose friend goes missing due to an unknown supernatural force. When they meet someone they think can help them, they jump at the opportunity.

6. 13 Reasons Why

Although this show may come with some controversy, it is still definitely worth your time. "13 Reasons Why" will take you an emotional rollercoaster as you follow Clay Jensen while he listens to recorded tapes by Hannah Baker, a classmate who took her own life. Throughout the show, you follow Hannah's life as she experiences high school and what led her to make the decision to end her life. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.

6 Things I Never Miss To Have In My Handbag

My handbag is a 'mini me' and I feel totally clueless without it


I take my handbag everywhere and carried everything at times even junk, worn out receipts, tickets, coupons for a long time. Thought it would be the right time to come to terms with it. I have started organizing or should I say customize my shoulder companion with things that are needed every day for me so that I could share it with you peeps. I really like my handbag that I became a sucker for naming it and you can see it why.

My Nutcracker Case

It might seem different but that is how I like to call my cute little box with nuts. I fill them up with almonds, pistachios, cashews, walnut and dried fruits and sorts if I go out. My nutcracker case helps me with my hunger pangs and snacking habit. I can munch them on when I have to skip my eating during my studies or if I have some work or travel. It is just a simple healthy alternative I do instead of grabbing fries or burgers. I've been taking healthy choices lately and this idea is helping me a lot. Try it!

My Perfume

I literally cannot survive without my perfume. It keeps me going and it really helps me on the go. My perfume is like a part of me so I am very choosy about it. So that said, I always keep my perfume in my handbag. How do I choose my perfume? My nose has a sharp sensitivity over the fragrances. So it says, what is the best perfume for women.

My Tech Space

I use to put up a fight every time with my handbag in the name of searching for my charger and headphones. So I gave it a thought. My favorite clear pouch came to the rescue and I gave it a name, my Tech Space. I carry my two headphones, my power bank, pen drives, travel phone charger, memory cards, and USB connector within the Tech space!

Money Banks

Well you would have figured it out by now. Yes, it's my wallet . Something I would never miss to have. I do have a separate small coin pouch. I am not a big wallet person so I always prefer a small comfortable wallet with many racks where I put my cards and ready-cash. I don't just put my wallet in my bag; I specifically have them in a zipped compartment. Once I had a bad experience when I left my wallet in the room due to 'bag cleaning'. So from then on, I started to put my wallet in a separate zipped compartment, so that it remains safe even when I occasionally take out the bag.

My Journal

I am still an old school. I will better remember the details when I manually write it down. My journal is also my 'To-Do list' so I pretty much use it for everything. I carry a fountain pen with me which I use, so pretty much I am a very old school indeed.


I stash all my skin essentials in this pouch. I will have a small bottle of my daily-facewash, a pack of facial tissues, my moisturizer, a concealer, small mirror and a light lip shade, overall a quick makeup fix. I have a side compartment in my vanity pouch where I keep my sanitary needs. I need my lip balm very often, so I usually put it the bag so every time I don't have to open the pouch.

When you ask me, my bag is more like a non-talking companion who literally has a small version of my room in it. What about yours?
