Why Pretty Little Liars Is A Must Watch

Why Pretty Little Liars Is A Must Watch

If you like mystery and romance, then this is the show for you.

I, for one, have always loved a good mystery book, movie or TV show. They leave me anxious, but not just any anxiety, it's the kind that is accelerating and leaves me wanting more. Some may say that it's a show that has been dragged on for too long, but I love shows that are aired for years at a time. It not only creates a fan/family base between the actors and fans among themselves, but it also allows viewers to have people to look up to or to grow up with. Plus, the Liars also have a great sense of style with their outfits and makeup. *May be a few spoilers*

We meet the girls when they are just sophomores in high school, missing their best friend who went missing a year before hand. They all come back together once Allison has a remembrance ceremony, but it's something that would change their lives forever. At the same time they all receive a text message from the mysterious "A." To some teenagers, I don't think a text message would be so frightening, but these girls have secrets they haven't even told to each other, and the crazy part is that "A" knows every single one of them. The girls began jumping at the sound of a cell phone and were scared for their lives as the seasons progressed.

"A" was not your average bully; it was deadly and the girls' reputations could be ruined forever. The mystery makes you want to keep watching, along with the romance. It's dramatic and heartwarming all at once. It may be a stereotype for high school, but what's different is that these girls stay together through thick and thin, whereas I think some friends would have left.

The Liars sacrifice their love lives while trying to defeat "A," which will also bring you to tears when you think "A" has almost won. The entire show has its twists and turns, and if you love watching shows that are unpredictable, this is your show. There are some people that may "die" or go "missing" and maybe they could come back. We just never know with PLL.

Now for those of you who think that it's a waste of time to watch all six seasons on Netflix and then wait for the seventh, I say that's crazy! Not everyone has time to watch shows I suppose, but once you start, you get hooked--there is no going back. It makes you think and almost use your brain trying to figure out who did what and who's really behind the hoodie. Could this creepy creature be a Liar herself, or could it be the missing Allie. Maybe it could be a lone figure whom we haven't met yet.

I will say it will take your breath away if you watch it until the end. It's an emotional roller coaster, and that is why I love it so much. It will warm your heart with friendship, scare your pants off with anxiety, and make you laugh with the sarcasm. I promise you, you won't be disappointed once you get hooked on this show.

'The Cruel Prince' Is The Newest Addition To The Land Of Faerie

Holly Black does it again with new faerie novel.

Holly Black is known for writing marvelous and magical faerie story. And she did it yet again. 'The Cruel Prince' is Black's newest release and the first book in a trilogy. It follows Jude, who was kidnapped at a child and taken to the land of faerie. She never really felt like she belonged there, since she is human, even though the faeries accept her. Everything goes from there.

I found the story really interesting, and it had a few twists and turns that I didn't see coming. A criticism that a lot of YA books get is that it's all kind of predictable. Sometimes it is, but I don't think that that's always a bad thing. It's just a story arc that seems to do well. Nevertheless, that's not the case here. The story was original and had a good plot.

The writing was really good! I have yet to read her other works (such as 'The Spiderwick Chronicles') but I have heard great things about them and am certainly planning on reading them. I really liked Black's writing style, it reads very easily and varies just perfectly.

I thought the characters were very well done. You got to know them pretty well and the same goes for the side characters. Not everything is explored fully yet, but it is a trilogy so there's still a lot of room for that. Next to that, the pacing of the story was also really good. Some people found it a bit slow in the middle, and I can see why. But personally, I didn't really have a problem with it. I thought it was pretty well-paced.

So, overall I think 'The Cruel Prince' is a pretty decent read. You Should really pick it up, especially if you love faeries! It's great for fans of Sarah J Maas (Throne of Glass / A Court of Thorns and Roses) and Julie Kagawa. Be sure to check this new novel out!

7 Reasons Why Your Squad Needs To Be Like the Fab 5

We all have a squad, but the Fab 5 has given us new standards.

In case you haven’t seen it, I’m here to tell you that Netflix’s revamp of Queer Eye is EVERYTHING! Through the show, you will meet the Fab 5: Bobby Berk, interior design mogul, Antoni Porowski, food and drink specialist, Jonathan Van Ness, style and grooming expert, Tan France, style expert, and finally, Karamo Brown, culture specialist. These five have come together to create one of the funniest, most genuine, and touching show I’ve watched in a long time.

For those of you that have not had the opportunity to watch the show yet, here’s a brief synopsis. The Fab 5 visit with a new person each episode and transforms their lives through fashion, proper grooming, home décor, cuisine, and confidence. It sounds so corny, but it is soooo amazing to watch.

Bobby, Antoni, Jonathan, Tan, Karamo, if you are by chance reading this, I adore you and I thank you for the conversations you are starting. Each episode not only transforms someone’s life, but it also creates conversations all across the country about being openly gay, racial barriers, and so much more. Every single one of you has said something in Queer Eye that has touched me and inspired me to be the best version of myself every single day.

Again, if you haven’t watched this show yet, it is a must watch!

1. They are each other’s biggest fans.

Seriously, go look at all of their Instagrams. These guys hype each other up on the show, on social media, and I’d be willing to bet they do in person, too. We all need friends like that.

2. They’re not afraid to be real with each other.

Of course, I can’t speak for their personal relationships. But, look at how open they are with the guests on the show and with each other. The Fab 5 have real, vulnerable moments that all of us need to have with our friends on the regular.

3. They are FIERCE!

Just look at them! All five of them are incredibly confident in themselves and in each other. Can you imagine how bright a room would feel after this group walks in?

4. Their strengths complement each other.

Let’s be real, this show would not work the way it does if all of them knew fashion like Tan or food/drinks like Antoni. Each of the Fab 5 has a strength that is their focus on the show. They each have something to offer to the guests on Queer Eye, and they know that and don’t step on each other’s toes.

5. They can relate to each other.

This is going to sound so cliché, but you need people around you that can relate to what you’re going through, or can at least kind of relate. These men have all experienced some similar things and they can support each other better through that.

6. They celebrate each other.

They are incredibly supportive of each other, especially when one of them is having a huge impact on one of their guests. We all need friends that will be the first to raise a glass to your victories.

7. They are fun!

Watch one episode and you’ll see what I mean. They genuinely have so much fun together.
