I have not finished a book in WEEKS. The last book I finished was back in the beginning of July. And college starts in exactly two weeks, so you’d think I would be reading a lot more now in case I don’t have time later. Nope. Why, you ask? Let’s start with a fun fact about me: I have absolutely NO SELF CONTROL when it comes to addictive TV shows. None. AT ALL. When I start a TV show, I don’t stop watching until I have finished every episode, the spin-offs, the cast interviews and sometimes, other shows the cast have been in. I just make my life very complicated.
***Warning: Slight spoilers ahead for Arrow and the Flash. Very slight though, nothing big***
Back to the issue, I have recently discovered CW’s Arrow.
Awesome show by the way, you should definitely watch if you don’t. Of course I had to binge watch all the episodes on Netflix and I was just innocently watching until season 4 when who comes along? Barry Allen, as in the Flash. As if one show ruining my life wasn’t enough, now I just had to start watching the Flash because I needed to know THE WHOLE STORY. And it doesn’t help that the two shows keep crossing over so I also have to watch both of them in order alternatively. I am very adamant about watching shows in order, even the ones where you don’t necessarily have to. Order matters people, ORDER MATTERS. (Honestly though, the crossover episodes are my favorites. I mean, how awesome are these two?
Oh, you think that’s the end of my dilemma? NO! Because then what happens? Two more shows that will also feature some of the same characters happen. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and the second season of Supergirl (which will now be on the CW) are also being added to the Arrowverse. And it isn’t like I would ever start a show at Season 2 so of course I now have to go watch season 1 of Supergirl. So now, little me has FOUR shows to watch in order. And I’m not even counting the shows outside this universe.
I know what you’re thinking: Well, Shouni, you really don’t have to. YOU ARE WRONG.
And Goodreads is just being plain mean at this point.
So if any of you are wondering why I haven’t posted a book review since June, I have been sucked into a void. There’s really no hope of escape.
