The Hookup Plan (Show Review)

I had seen this around social media but I hadn’t thought too much of it until I saw Kat gushing about it on her blog. I decided I should watch it, and boy was it worth watching. I finished all eight episodes one after the other. It was beautiful.

The basic premise is that Elsa’s friends are worried about her because she is still obsessed with her ex, despite the fact that he’s now in a relationship. He also cheated on her but that seems to be out of Elsa’s focus. In hopes of helping Elsa, her two best friends pay a male escort to stage a relationship with Elsa and eventually hookup with her, as the name ensues.

Mini Review Monday – Room (The Movie)

I’m trying out a new series! If you’d like to participate, just comment down below. Mini-Review Monday is just that, a mini-review on a Monday. It can be on books, products, or TV shows/movies.

I recently watched the film adaptation of Room on Netflix and all I can say is that I was bawling for a chunk of it. It’s about a woman who was kidnapped and had a child, who she names Jack, for her captor. Her son is five years old and she plans to have him escape the room, with or without her.

I’m trying something new, let me know what you think.

The Grownish Season 2 Premiere was one hour long, so the first two episodes. I was live tweeting for the first time. I had so much fun reading everyone’s comments.

Let me start off with the non-spoilers, like the fact that the outfits were poppin as usual. Ana was wearing these white fishnet leggings with patterned shorts and it was just sooo cute. Also, the twins had their shoe game on point. Nomi’s rocking the coat and I’m not gonna pretend Zoey isn’t killing it with that striped sweater. In the famed words of Spongebob, “The best time to wear a striped sweater, is all the time.”

Two for Tuesday – New Year, New Books

Happy New Year! We’ve successfully made it into 2019 and to rein in the new year, I purchased more books. New books also mean new pictures, so here is a shot I took right after I opened my package.

I’ve decided to treat myself, especially since these books were in my TBR for so long and I couldn’t stop thinking about them. These two should be great follow ups to The Education of Margot Sanchez.
