TV Show Review: Disney Channel's New Comedy Series, Girl Meets World

First Check Out the Trailer!!!

My Thoughts

In this fast paced society, it is nice that Disney is producing shows filled with laughable moments and great messages that facilitate discussions between parents and children.

One such show is Girl Meets World, which is set to air June 27, 2014. My daughter and I had the opportunity to attend a live taping on May 15, 2014. And let me tell you….Boy Meets World fans this is a great spin off from the original series with Cory (Ben Savage) & Topanga (Danielle Fishel). Now, Cory and Topanga are all grown up and they experience the joy of parenting as their daughter, Riley (Rowan Blanchard), seeks to define her identity. There are lessons to be learned along the way as Riley begins to discover the meaning of friendship, loyalty, and being true to oneself.  And hey kids—there are even some teachable moments for parents as Cory has over-the-top reactions to his daughter’s quest to grow up—um, reflection time.  

My daughter loved being part of the live studio audience. Although, she wasn’t familiar with Boy Meets World, she loved this show and is looking forward to watching the series. In her words, “The experience was awesome. I loved learning about what happens behind the scenes. I really liked Robert and the DJ, they made it fun. I just can’t wait to see Girl Meets World on TV!”

So if my daughter likes it, I must say that this series definitely appears promising. Now, if you are curious and want to get a sneak peak at the premiere, it’s available now on the WATCH Disney app

ARC Review: The Warrior by Victoria Scott

The Warrior (Dante Walker, #3)Title: The Warrior
Author: Victoria Scott
Age Range: YA
Source/ Format: Publisher, E-ARC
Publisher/ Publication Date: Entangled Teen, May 6, 2014
Goodreads    Amazon    Barnes & Noble    Book Depository

Summary From Goodreads

War between heaven and hell is coming, but Dante Walker makes it look damn good.
Dante’s girlfriend, Charlie, is fated to save the world. And Aspen, the girl who feels like a sister, is an ordained soldier. In order to help both fulfill their destiny and win the war, Dante must complete liberator training at the Hive, rescue Aspen from hell, and uncover a message hidden on an ancient scroll. Read More Here

My Thoughts    

     All good things must come to an end and the same can be said for the Collector Series, which is coming to an end with the final installment, The Warrior. Dante Walker is back again with his usual wit and charm, and the compassion that’s always present for his girlfriend, Charlie. As far as finals in a trilogy go, The Warrior is one of my favorites. It was full of action, sadness, loss, and happiness with an outcome that left me nearly breathless.

     The Warrior basically picks up where The Liberator left off, as the final battle between the sides is drawing near. I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions between the characters and the developing—and the few—dissolving relationships that happened throughout the book. I also liked seeing Dante Walker change so much. His development as a character was awesome, and Charlie was right along with him. Everyone changed a little bit, it just depended on if that change was good or bad, and I liked not knowing who was to be trusted and who wasn’t—it just made the book that much better. The other secondary characters were great as always, with each one having a different story to tell, which contributed nicely to the overall execution of the book.

     As far as the overall plot I have to say that I love it when I think a series has shown its all, but then turns right around and still has a few surprises left lurking around. With The Warrior, I thought I had just about everything figured out—I thought I knew who was who and what side they were on—but nope. The twists and turns were marvelous and kept me reading till the very end. All in all The Warrior was a fantastic finish to an already delightful series. While I am sad that The Collector Trilogy is over at the very least I have Salt & Stone to look forward to.

   This ARC was provided by the publisher (Entangled Teen) in exchange for an honest review, thank you!

A Hiatus...

From the Our Thoughts Precisely Team

     Things have gotten a little sparse around here again, but it's not without reason this time. As the title of the post suggests, we've got to take a break from blogging, because you know life sometimes gets in the way of things. It happens. Basically we're moving and I don't mean the blog.  And with the move means soon we're going to have a lack of internet connection, and little time to read. I know we've got stuff to do, reviews to write, and so on, but this hiatus is pretty inevitable at this point. (Things moved along quicker than we thought.) But we'll be back up as soon as things are settled and more or less organized again. (Those books don't unpack themselves you know.) This is just to let you guys know that we're not quitting, or disappearing, but rather going on a hiatus for the time being, but don't fret we'll be back soon. And so now we're off, but we leave you with a shiny new poll on the side of the blog.

Mortal Enchantment
About the book
In Kalin Matthew's world, elementals control the forces of nature. They are divided into four courts: air, woodland, fire, and water. At sixteen she will leave the life she's built with her mortal mother. Kalin will move to Avalon to rule with her father—the elemental king of the air court. Along the way, she's attacked by a fire court assassin and saved by Rowan, a swoon-worthy elemental with a questionable past.
Worst of all, she learns her father is missing.
To rescue him, Kalin will have to work with a judgmental council and a system of courts too busy accusing each other of deceit to actually be able to help her. But, they aren’t her biggest challenge. With the Midwinter’s Ball only five days away, Kalin must take over her father’s duties, which includes shifting control of the elements—power Kalin has yet to realize.
As Rowan attempts to train her, a war looms between the four courts. If Kalin fails, her father will die and the courts will fall, but the betrayal she’s about to uncover may cost her even more...

“Mortal Enchantment spins a unique twist on elemental mythology. This series is not to be missed.” Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Every sacrifice has consequences. Sixteen-year-old Rowan has spent most of his life living among the mortals—learning to control the element of fire, impatiently awaiting the day his vengeful mother, Queen Prisma, will abdicate her throne. When he finally returns to Avalon for his coronation, his mother insists he must first prove his loyalty to the court by completing a secret mission: Kill Kalin, the half-human, half-elemental daughter of the air court king. Willing to do anything to remove his mother from power, he agrees to sacrifice the halfling. He returns to the mortal world with his best friend, Marcus, determined to kill the princess. But as he devises a plan, he starts to question whether or not he's capable of completing such a heinous task. And what price he will pay if he refuses?

Cover Reveal & Giveaway!!! LUX: BEGINNINGS AND LUX: CONSEQUENCES by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lux: Beginnings (Obsidian & Onyx) and Lux: Consequences (Opal & Origin) will both be releasing on June 3, 2014.

Lux: Beginnings (Obsidian & Onyx) official Blurb:

There's an alien next door. And with his looming height and eerie green eyes, he's hot...until he opens his mouth. He's infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, he lights me up with a big fat bulls-eye. Turns out he has a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal his abilities and the only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to him until my alien mojo fades. If I don’t kill him first, that is.
Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro alien connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems. I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

LUX: BEGINNING (Obsidian & Onyx)Links:

Lux: Consequences (Opal & Origin) official blurb:

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing alien hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.
Daemon will do anything to get Katy back. After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?
