ORPHAN BLACK: Season 3 Finale

"Despite my gripes over the last few episodes, I must say I loved the conclusion of this season. I was kept at the edge of my seat, I got wrapped up in a few short, but heartfelt moments, and said goodbye to a few characters."

ORPHAN BLACK: Season 3, Episode 9

I think it’s safe to say that ORPHAN BLACK fans let out a collective sigh of relief after last night’s episode, “Insolvent Phantom of Tomorrow,” finally revealed patient zero. We’re getting close people, and though the road is far from straight and narrow, I guess it was worth the journey. Right? Last night’s episodes are a Trinity of some sort in that things came or went in threes: Sarah, Fee, and Mrs. S (Siobhan) went to London town to look for the original Castor, whom Siobhan promises she’ll kill once its identity is known. Who knew Siobhan can belt out a tune in such a sexy way? As expected, trouble follows Sarah so their little homecoming was far from uneventful, but we’ll come back to that later. Cosima, Shay, and Delphine‘s love triangle came to… Continue

ORPHAN BLACK: Season 3, Episode 5

"Finally, the sestras have reunited – but it’s not cozy. The Castors and Mother Virginia has gotten to our feisty assassin that she didn't feel the warm and fuzzies upon seeing her twin, Sarah. Oh Helena, if only you knew the lengths Sarah went through to get to you! I mean it's not the most ideal situation but at least you guys are back together... sort of."

EVER AFTER by Kate SeRine

Kate Serine’s Transplanted Tales is my favorite fairy tale-inspired series. The series gist is very similar to the TV show Once Upon a Time: a rift happens, and our beloved characters from lores, legends, myths, and tales of old are transplanted to our world.  Some have managed to stay true to their characters as they were in the tales, some are almost unrecognizable, while others managed to do both like the heroes and heroines of each installment. Ever After is book four of the series. The hero is Gideon, whom we’ve met in the earlier books, a loyal Unseelie guard to the royal fae family, and his lady love, Arabella aka Robin Hood. I was one of those fans who immediately took an immediate liking to Gideon in book two, The Better to See YouContinue

VIRGIN by Radhika Sanghani

“VIRGINVIRGINVIRGIN. I hated the word. I hated it just as much as I hated the fact that I was one. It wasn’t fair–why did I have to be the only non-deformed, non-religious girl stuck with an untouched inner lotus at the age of twenty-one?” Virgins and deflowering tales: Erotica ruined what historical romance worked diligently to romanticize for me during my formative years. I’m sure I’m not the only person who rolls their eyes when we see “virgin” attached to the heroine who ends up being unbelievably skillful in the sack. I don’t know about you, but virginity to me is almost sacred. I blame it on the nuns who raised me and were this short of saying that I have to build an altar for my untouched vagina until The Husband comes along to… Continue
