The Rose and the Dagger

Oh, Renee, you never cease to amaze me! *happy sigh*

After Renee Ahdieh’s “The Wrath and the Dawn” blew–let’s be honest–EVERYONE away (and also after I met the sweet, hilarious writing genius at Comic-Con 2015), the book fandom world suffered greatly for a year in anticipation of the final installment in the duology. Then came a description and the cover!!! (Shipper hearts exploded everywhere) And, finally, after millions of painful hours spent crying softly with want and need, the book arrived.

Oh, how the heavens rejoiced!!!

Anyway, you know I’m not one for being the recipient OR giver of spoilers, so I’ll just give you a brief overview of the story through “Teen Wolf” gifs. Now, come, enter our fandom. WARNING! There are no exits. 

fandom

The book begins with Shazi at the camp Tariq brings her to, and it was actually nice to see them interacting again. But as much as I like Tariq, I have been waiting a year for Khazi to reconnect, so OUT OF THE WAY!!! At long last, once Shazi came to Khalid on her magic carpet (trying so hard not to sing the Steppenwolf song right now!), it was like nothing else mattered in the world.

yesss

And there is this one moment where something happens to Shazi (no spoilers!), and Khalid is about to go into full-on zombie mode to avenge her. I believe every fangirl felt this way in that instant:

hot

But, inevitably, now that we’ve had some great times together, there’s bound to be some drama. Or, like, truckloads of it. I finished the book in two days (if it wasn’t for eating, sleeping, and work, I could have finished sooner!), and I was basically a hot, concerned mess until the last page.

sad

And when Khalid fights to free himself from his curse, we were all cheering him on.

The only issue (“issue” even sounds extreme, since its just my preference) that I had with the book was that there sometimes wasn’t enough of Shazi and Khalid together–plenty of pages were dedicated to secondary characters. For example, I like Irsa as a person, I really do, but sometimes having entire chapters dedicated to her (when you just know Khazi it out there somewhere) was a little tedious. Though I always looked forward to Rahim in her scenes! But as much as we love them, raise your hand if you don’t want Irsa to occupy half of Khazi’s story.

 Although having so many secondary characters at the forefront of the story was sometimes distracting, when one of them–one of my favorite characters–lost his life, I was totally broken up over it and shed several tears. But then I couldn’t see the page and had to dry my tears so I could finish!!!

crying

And somehow Renee can break your heart and then mend it 1,000 times over. Just. Sigh. One of the most perfect series enders I have read in a long time. Kudos, Renee!

But I was so entrenched in the story that once I had rushed through to the end and placed the finished story aside, it hit me that it was over. I had just read the epilogue, and the series was over! Excuse me while I die and then proceed to re-read “The Wrath and the Dawn” 40 times.

end

Now buy, BUY the book! What are you waiting for? GOOOOOOOO!!!!

Such Dazzling Excitement!

It has been a very stupendous week! Here are just a few of the things that have me grinning and gushing and going ga-ga right now (I didn’t realize until after I collected the pictures, but there are quite a few gentlemen on this list. Hmm. Odd).

I LOVED this movie! I kid you not, it was my favorite surprise Fun Film of the year. Who cares what the critics said? It was a blast and uproariously funny and endearing. And that Armie Hammer: Hoo-Hah!

The fact that Jeremy is played by Steve McQueen. Yes, grandson to THE Steve McQueen. Could he be any cooler?

When Liz told me that my crush Isaac from Teen Wolf (a.k.a. Daniel Sharman) was also my voice crush from the small snippet of The Clockwork Princess on CD that I listened to, I did a few giddy air-pumps. . . . . . And then dramatically dropped to my knees.

Just to split up the boy-mania on here, this is my other obsession this week. My favorite Tyler Florence cookbook ever, and it was completely Post-It riddled by the first night it was in my hands. I just made his blueberry scones, which are to die for. Oh, Tyler, fellow food addict and all things culinary aficionado, I love you. *sighs*

The Middle is like The Nanny: Our go-to comedy show, no matter the mood we're in. We've been watching the first season all the way through, and it's scary how much it resembles real life.

Tyler Hoechlin. I would add words, but I don’t believe they’re necessary (refer to next slide).

If I ever went to school with Tyler. . . . . Yeah, this would be me.

 

Liam Payne as Leeroy, the leg warmer-wearing choreographer from One Direction's ridiculously funny countdown to the premiere of "The Best Song Ever" tonight. It's literally twelve seconds that he's in the clip, but the girls and I have watched it ten times minimum.  Yeah, we're staying up 'till midnight.

Speaking of One Direction, Liz and I are SUPER excited, because we finally got our tickets for their show in a couple weeks. Now if I could just find a way on stage.......
