I recently finished The Umbrella Academy on Netflix!
I was seeing it all over Instagram, both on bookstagram and on my friend’s stories. I didn’t want to miss out so…I watched it! I really liked this show, full of misfits and dysfunctional families (well just the one but aH well)!
A few random opinions; ♥Klaus was my fave! I also loved Allison! ♥Luther was boring and stupid WHY COULDN’T HE JUST LISTEN TO ALLISON ♥Diego was…Diego. ♥ Hazel and Cha Cha were annoying and had too much screen time ♥Ben is a sweet little bean and mUst be prOtecTed at alL coSts ♥’twas a good show, season 2 pls thank u
I saw this tag over at Paper Fury, but it was created by It’s My Birth Write on YouTube! Let’s get straight in…
1. HELLO: NAME THE BEST FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES.
Ooh, a HARD one! I always find I like sequels more, and since I can only name ones I’ve read the sequel for… I’m going to have to go with Lady Midnight, Truthwitch and Daughter of Smoke and Bone! I know that’s three, but all of these books perfectly set the stage for their sequels while still being works of art in themselves!
2. THE HARGREAVES CHILDREN: NAME A BIG BOOK FAMILY (DYSFUNCTION IS OPTIONAL)
THE BLACKTHORNS!!! MY CHILDREN! I love the Blackthorn siblings so much I want to cuddle them and keep them safe FOREVER…they definitely count as dysfunctional as well!
3. THE WORLD ENDS IN 8 DAYS: IF YOU ONLY HAD EIGHT DAYS LEFT, WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO BE YOUR LAST READ?
You can’t ask me this! Okay, I do actually have an answer…The Red Scrolls of Magic! It features my OTP, MALEC and comes out in FOURTEEN DAYS (the apocalypse better freaking wait) !!! I’m so excited I’m going to combust I need this NOW!
4. SPACE BOY: NAME A CHARACTER WHO PLAYS THE LEADER, BUT MAY NOT BE CUT OUT FOR IT.
Ugh, I AGREE with this question! Luther isn’t at all cut out for leadership… I mean look at the last couple episodes *smacks forehead*. But book characters…hmm…Cardan? I mean he starts out DEFINITELY not cut out for it but at the end of The Wicked King…damn! I’m still gonna go with him but let’s just wait for Queen of Nothing.
5. THROWING KNIVES: WHAT LITERARY WEAPON WOULD YOU WANT IN YOUR ARSENAL?
I kinda want like a cool sword that I get to name or legendary magical powers or something awesome…but I also know me, and I wouldn’t be able to handle it…so I’d want to have magical powers that are very me-y…IDK what those would be, or maybe a magic wand? I reckon I’d be pretty good at spells…ooh or a fae warrior pls.
6. I HEARD A RUMOUR: NAME A BOOK THAT HAS A MISLEADING PLOTLINE.
Um…I can’t think of any??? Vicious was so confusing until like 3/4 of the way through when you finally understand all the back story but then it’s meant to be like that and I love it so I don’t know *shrug*!
7. KLAUS: NAME A BOOK THAT INVOLVES THE DEAD / GHOSTS / ETC.
So I’m obviously going to mention one of my ALL TIME FAVES, Strange the Dreamer. Minya can control the dead (she’s a formidable six-year-old I love her) and she doesn’t always use that for good but I love her SO MUCH! Though the ghosts play a bigger part in Muse of Nightmares, when one of our main babies may or may not die and become a ghost…just read the book trust it’s so gooooodddd!
8. THE BOY: RECOMMEND A BOOK THAT PLAYS WITH TIME (WHETHER IT BE IN DUAL TIMELINES, INVOLVING TIME TRAVEL, ETC.)
Hmm…I’m so stumped for this one…I can’t think of any…I started Passenger but I never finished it so…dual timelines? This is abstract but Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy has lots of people telling stories of the past kinda…It’s so good obviously!
9. VANYA: NAME A CHARACTER WHO HAS BURIED POTENTIAL.
I’m apparently bad at this…I’m going to say Vaness from Truthwitch! She’s not a super main character but I really want to see her become one and be all cool and Aelin-y because she deserves that and she is formidable and fair and definitely more sensible than Aelin and she just needs more screen (page??) time! *sobs*
10. LUTHER AND ALLISON: NAME A QUESTIONABLE BOOK COUPLE, AND WHY YOU DO OR DON’T LIKE THEM.
I didn’t really ship them either tbh…Alli is too good for him! Hm there’s a couple popular couples I just don’t ship;
♦Alina and Mal…just…no spark! no CUDDLES ♦Jude and Cardan…so toxic! I just don’t ship it, but I like them as characters RESPECTIVELY ♦Warner and Juliette…Okay so I’ve only read the first two but I just don’t really understand why people ship this couple SO MUCH ♦Bella and Edward…need I explain myself?
11. HAZEL AND CHA CHA: PICK A DEADLY BOOK DUO.
Aelin and Rowan! Morrigan and Feyre (they need a badass scene together or I’ll kill Sarah)! Safi and Iseult! SOO MANY!
12. GOODBYE: WHAT’S THE BEST FINALE?
NOOO LEAVE ME! I hate the end of series but…Kingdom of Ash! Queen of Air and Darkness! Clockwork Princess! Allegiant! These books broooke me I’m ded k! So many others with new books to come out so I can’t count them…
Have you watched The Umbrella Academy? Which popular couples do you NOT ship?
Thanks so much for reading this blog, Midnightlings! I love you *blowing kiss emoji*
