I live in New York City and I'm surrounded by books all day and when I go home I have more books waiting for me. Read my "About" page on top to see what I mean. I just want to share my book experiences and my love of all-things-books, with hopefully the occasional review thrown in. If you wish to contact me, the address is polishoutlanderATgmailDOTcom

Vampire Diaries: Founder’s Day (Season Finale)

I have nothing. I don’t want to spoil anyone.
But I will say this….watching Buffy/Angel has taught me that being dead is not necessarily the end of the road for any character.
I think I have to rewatch the last 5 minutes of the episode, to be sure of something though.

Vampire Diaries: Isobel

Oh yes my friends, that’s Jeremy and Uncle John sitting together….talking. About what you say? Well, you have to find out for yourself. But I guess this episode solves the question I had about the Uncle…I guess he is just a regular human.
Well this episode is all about secrets, and secrets revealed, involving everyone, including [...]

Vampire Diaries: Blood Brothers

Well, we finally get the whole story of Damon and Stefan. We finally see that Stefan isn’t the same Stefan we thought he was all his vampire life. Puts a great spin on their whole brother relationship.

Vampire Diaries: Under Control & Miss Mystic Falls

Ladies and gentlemen…the $&@* has hit the fan!
I just watched these latest two episodes this week. Watching Under Control, my jaw literally dropped when it appeared that Damon killed Jonathan Gilbert. So what’s the dude’s story? How old is he anyway because the way he talks, it’s as if he’s been around for a while. [...]

Vampire Diaries: Let the Right One In

Well….Vicky makes a comeback…sorta. And just her being dead causes all sorts of other problems. I was wondering during the show why we had to see Caroline driving the back roads in her fancy car, phone in hand, in the rain….boooooring! There had to be a reason. And we got it. Who would have thought [...]

Vampire Diaries: There Goes the Neighborhood

Didn’t get to watch this when it aired last week so I finally caught up the other night.
Well surprisingly, it was sort of a normal double-date for our foursome. Although I don’t feel the Matt/Caroline connection. I feel it’s too forced, on both their parts, as characters. I just don’t see how they connect. But [...]

Vampire Diaries: A Few Good Men

Well, kiddies, the hiatus was over last night. And it was another shocking episode.  That little flashback scene of Damon killing Alaric’s wife? Who would have thought it would spiral into all this!?!
And I knew we wouldn’t be seeing the last of Pearl and Anna. But this does make me think…..how many special rings are [...]
