Posts Tagged ‘The Secret Circle’

It has been a quite the week (geesh). Between snow storms and craziness at the day job (ahh), I’m so ready for the weekend. There’s another round of snow coming in this afternoon/tonight so it’ll be another lovely commute home.

Tomorrow (weather pending) we’ll have my daughter’s basketball game. So hoping it’s a good one. Last week was a little rough as 2 girls got injured, 1 girl was sick and didn’t show, and another dropped off the team. So yeah, they were a little short. Erin had all but one of the baskets for the team (woohoo). She was amazing on defense (lots of steals), but yeah, they lost by 6 points.

And ZOMG, Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle were flipping AWESOME last night. Seriously LOVING these shows. Thursday is like my favorite TV night (well, I also like Wednesday (Ghost Hunters) and Sunday (Once Upon a Time) too-hehe). Hmmm…on the VD front methinks Stefan might be starting to show signs of caring for Elena again (much to my dismay—LOL). I so LOVE Damon and want him and Elena to be together. And I’m trying to figure out what’s going on with Alaric and the Dr. There’s something up with her. So don’t trust her. Definitely some interesting turn of events (Bonnie’s mom). HOLY CRAP, I didn’t see the Elijah thing coming, great plot twist.  So much going on. Can’t wait until next week.

Oh, and on the Secret Circle, I love me some Jake. He and Cassie have a GREAT connection. I’m anxious to see how it’s played out. And I can’t wait to see more on Cassie’s dad. And of course, I know there will be some major craziness coming especially if Faye gets hooked on this drug. I really liked seeing a little bit of the past and seeing that softer side to Jake last night. Still like Adam, but want to see Cassie and Jake have a moment or two. I’m wondering how long Diana will stick with “just being friends” with Adam. I have a feeling they’ll hook back up for a little bit. Still hoping they have Adam go look for the Master Tools. But we’ll see.

My TBR pile is still humongous. I’m almost finished reading Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris. I’m really liking it so far. After that, I’ll read Passion by Lauren Kate (which I bought last October for my birthday). Yeah, as you can tell my TBR pile hasn’t been touched much lately (LOL). And with Valentine’s Day coming up, I hope my hubby gets me a gift card for books (or a bouquet of books would be kind of flipping awesome).

Have some crazy stuff going on regarding the writing front. Still waiting to hear back on some stuff (eek). I’m leaning toward writing two books at once. I want to get book 2 for My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator written. I’ve got some research I need to do on it, but I’m hoping to get that underway soon. I also want to work on another book that I have some great ideas for (YA Fantasy). But that’s going to be more of rewrite/overhaul than anything.

Also, have to give props to my girls over at YAFF (Traci, Min, Pen, Vanessa, Jenn, Barb, Rachel, and Kelbian) and also my Non-YAFF writing friends (Angie and Lee) this week for your lovely emails/PM’s etc. You’ve totally been dolls.

I hope everyone has a FABULOUS weekend. Try and stay warm!!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Yeah, I know, I’m a bit late (LOL). So here I am, back from vacation. And let me tell you, I had a GREAT time just hanging out at the house. I played video games, watched movies, did stuff with the kidlets. We went shopping a few times. I didn’t do anything writing related. But yeah, I think I needed that break, kind of let the mind rest. However, now that vacay’s over, I’m back at it. Work is crazy. We’re short staffed right now and it sounds like they don’t intend to hire anyone else on. So, what that means for me? Double work load (ahhh).

On the writing front, I’m waiting to hear back on some projects, not to mention, I’m still trying to decide what story I want to work on next. I have 3-4 possibilities, just not sure which is calling more at the moment.  Figure I’ll give myself til next week to start figuring it out (LOL).

And OMG, my football team (Detroit Lions) are in the playoffs (holy crap—squuuuuuuuueeeeee). This is their first appearance since 1999. Totally stoked. Unfortunately, our first round opponent is New Orleans (boo/hiss). LOL. Yeah, it’ll be a tough game, but I’m so excited. I SO SO SO hope they pull of the win. ROAR (that’s my lion impression).  And speaking of football, don’t want to forget about my boys at the University of Michigan, who won the Sugar Bowl (OH YEAH). Totally humming the fight song. Hehehehe.  Lots to cheer about.

Finally, I come to the portion about The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle  (spoiler alert).

ELENA AND DAMON FINALLY KISSED!!!!! That’s right, the moment I’ve been waiting for since the beginning. Hehehe. And I admit that I rewound the DVR a few times during that scene! Really loved all the twists last night. The fact that Stefan is back and town and being a bad ass is kinda cool (LOL). Although, I wonder where Katherine has run off to again. And I didn’t see the whole using compulsion on Jeremy thing coming (Damon/Elena sending him out of town). I liked the united front of Alaric, Damon, and Elena though. Of course, Klaus is still causing havoc and I’m trying to figure out what he’s going to do with Tyler. Lots going on. And I can’t wait to see what they do with Bonnie/the coffins. But yeah, my favorite moment last night was THE KISS. SIGH.

And wow, how about The Secret Circle? OMG, I was so excited for last night to see Cassie’s powers. I have to say Diana’s grandma is kind of a bitch (LOL).  I’m really not liking Faye’s mom and Diana’s dad either. Bunch of conniving peeps. It was good to see Adam showing some interest in Cassie again, even after she almost choked him. And I have to say, I hope Jake comes back. He’s one of those characters that you know is bad, but has some good intentions as well. Also looks like Faye is going to be wreaking some havoc again, will be interested to see what happens with her. I hope we get to see the kids find out about the master tools (like they do in the books) and maybe have Adam go look for them. I really liked that arc in the book. So yeah, so much to look forward to. It’d be awesome to see Adam and Cassie have a moment as well (LOL).

Well, hope everyone has an AWESOME WEEKEND! I’ll be doing a lot of traveling we have basketball for my daughter and my son is a part of a Honors Orchestra  and they have a big concert on Sunday. And of course, Saturday, the Lions are playing New Orleans (so can’t miss it).

Ah, can I just say that I’m SO happy it’s Friday? This week has been filled with non-stop running.  We’re in full fall sports mode with Football and Soccer and the kids have practice like almost every night (but Friday—woohoo). LOL.

 

Tomorrow we have an out of town football game for my son Chase and we have to be there at 8:45 am.  OMG.  It’s going to be COLD in the morning.  As in I better get some hot cocoa to soak my hands in.  Then we get to go home for a little while and then we’ll head into town for my daughter Erin’s 2:00 pm soccer game. 

 

In other news in case you’ve been hiding in a cave, VAMPIRE DIARIES IS BACK…OH YEAH.  And Ian Somerhalder is still mega hot. Le sigh.  Last night’s episode was really good. Not only did Elena turn 18 and get to see a very nekkid Damon with water and bubbles glistening on his holy-hella-chest, but we got to see “evil” Stephan in action.

 

As always, the episode had a fast pace and I so can’t wait until next week.  And guess what else was on last night? Come on, guess?  SECRET CIRCLE…DOUBLE OMG…SQUEEEEEEEEEEE.

 

Phew, okay, now that I’ve settled down enough.  As some of you know, The Secret Circle was my ABSOLUTE favorite series when I was a teen.  I mean, I reread it every year, that’s how much I love it.  Now, I know the TV show doesn’t follow the books, but let me say, I think I’m going to have another favorite show to watch (hehehe).

 

Britt Robertson is the perfect Cassie, and while I had my doubts about Thomas Dekker being Adam, he quickly blew me away in last night’s episode.  So did the rest of the cast.  The first show was fast-paced with awesome characters.  I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it, but OMG, there is some Cassie/Adam chemistry going on.  I do hope that they’ll explore the Nick angle as well (like they did in the books). 

 

In yucky news, I was bummed to find out that The Nine Lives of Chloe King got cancelled by ABC Family.  Say what?  GRRRR…finally, a show I could actually watch with my 6th grade daughter and my 7th grade niece that didn’t have tons of sex etc in it and they take it off the air.  My daughter will be devastated because she LOVED that show.  However, I think I’ll let her watchSecret Circle (well at least the first episode).  And I’ll have to buy her the Chloe King book series so she can at least figure out what happens to everyone.

 

I’m still diligently working on my YA Fantasy Horror.  I’m about ½ done with it and the next chapter is going to be a VERY pivotal one.  Can’t wait to write it and I hope the plot twist surprises my crit partners (LOL).  Need to get my butt in gear and put in some writing time though.

 

In my TBR pile (or currently reading pile):  Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles (really loving it so far), Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles, Elixir by Hilary Duff, Balefire by Cate Tiernan, and Awakening by P.C. and Kristin Cast.  Oh and I should be getting the ARC for A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies in the mail pretty soon (ooh so can’t wait).

 

Hope everyone has a FAB weekend!
