Weekly Wrap-Up – 4/24/15

What We've Been Reading and Loving This Week on Pretty Sassy Cool

Welcome to a new Week in Review. Each week, we’ll let you know what we’ve been reading and checking out, whether it’s books, movies, shows, or anything else 🙂

Sherry: Let it be said that if you are NOT watching Outlander then go, run, NOW & start. This show just gets better and better IMO. It is probably the sexiest, most sensuous show I’ve seen on TV. The chemistry between the two leads playing Claire & Jamie is give me chills, curl your toes, to die for. This week SPOILER ALERT:

Again – Go Watch this Show. And to the person here who told me to watch this show, a thousand Thank You’s. I’m thinking about reading the books. Are they as good? I assume better, not that I can see that possibility, but books are usually better. So perhaps.

Scandal – WAIT did that just happen??????? SPOILER ALERT:

Now let’s talk about The Vampire Diaries, I’m seriously not happy that Nina Dobrev is leaving the show and I’m not sure how it will go on without her. I’m still gonna watch, but I just don’t know if I can live without my Delana.

What else have I been doing? Taxes taxes taxes. Thank goodness they are finally done and I can go back to a normal life. I’ll come back later if I watch something I have to talk about. Til then Have Fun, Pretties!

Betsy: Sherry, I love Outlander. The books are amazing. I have read Outlander at least 5 times, Voyager almost as many. The audiobooks are terrific as well. Davina Porter, the narrator, is incredible. The books can be dense; I will give that warning, but contain so many brilliantly constructed scenes and dialogue that will have you tearing up regularly. I really love the show as well. The two actors who play the main characters are fantastic, just fantastic. Last week’s show contained one of my favorite scenes, actually two of them. Speaking of the stones, I saw some very interesting comments from non-book readers. Some of them were confused by the scene at the stones. One person even posted she thought Claire had gone to say goodbye to Frank and come back. *dies laughing* Revolving door stones. hahahahaha. But yeah, some confusion amongst the masses. My only complaint was that I felt there was a bit too much witch trial and not enough of the scene at the stones and the reunion. Sherry, I have read that one scene over and over and over. One of the best scenes ever.

As to reading, well I did read that story that I mentioned last week with a controversial topic. It was a request by an agent/publicist to read for an honest opinion. I’m still on the fence because the premise was way out of my comfort zone. Once I can coherently put words together I will let y’all know what, who etc.

I did finally read the 3rd book in The Raven Boys Series by Maggie Stiefvater, Blue Lily, Lily Blue. I am still TERRIFIED by what’s happening to all of them and so worried for sweet Gansey. Dammit. I hate having to wait for the finale and pray to all the gods that I don’t get an Allegiant hot fricking mess. PLEASE make this all good. I did enjoy the writing in this book. Maggie has really grown as a writer, not that she was terrible to start with, because she was not, but her prose now is so beautiful and evocative. Just pulls you in, even when you want to hide your head behind a pillow. Or drink a lot. 🙂

I have not done anything remotely pretty in my world so I need some pretty to be spread around. Please and thank you.

Kassiah: I’m still here, still reading. I’ve made a couple of websites lately, one that will go live this weekend and the other one is Fiction Fare. We’re still trudging along with school, though I really just want to be done for the year. I think we’ll start a little early next year so we can finish at Spring Break LOL I can’t believe it’s already MAY!!!

Bill and Ted Whoa Gif

A recent read that totally stands out is Things I Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby, which was absolutely amazing. We posted a review on Swoony Boys Podcast, if you want to check it out.
