Book Review: "Think Of A Number" - John Verdon

Think of a number between 1 and 1000. Do you have your number? Good. I guarantee that by the end of reading this book it will be a 10. 


Short summary

Retired NYPD detective Dave Gurney is contacted by an old acquaintance by the name of Mark Mellery, who has been receiving letters in which a mystery person, signed "X. Arybdis", writes a series of poems, first creating panic and fear as he predicts the exact number Mellery is thinking about. 

"What he took he will give, when he gets what he gave"
Gurney then proceeds to try and uncover not only the mystery behind the letters, but also the identity of the perpetrator. When Mellery is murderd and the crime scene evidence left behind is found to be strategically placed there, making no sense at all, it quickly becomes clear that the culprit is smart, cunning and hungry for more blood. 
Diving into the world of mystery, murder and the past, Gurney finds himself in a game in which only one can prevail.

Film list: Movies coming out in 2015/16 (that I wish were out already)

Hello and welcome to my newest wizard post! Today I'm going to be sharing some films that I just can't wait for. THEY NEED TO COME! But unfortunately they haven't been released yet... so I just watch the trailers - over and over. So without further a do, let's jump into the list of movies I wish would be in theatres already. 

Trailers will be included for all of you lazy people out there like me, so that you don't have to head over to YouTube (and let's face it: once you watch one trailer, you usually start binge watching random trailers - or is that just me?!)


1.) Suicide Squad


This is definitely the movie I'm most excited about. I've always been a fan of DC in general, but the trailer just did it for me. Justice isn't always black and white and DC shows that in the trailer. There is a very thin line between justice and crime. The Suicide Squad basically does the governments dirt work, killing terrorists and other bad guys. Things, that they don't…

iZOMBIE - the "brainhunt" starts tomorrow!

With the new season come fresh brains. This time around the stakes have changed...
In this post I will focus on spoilers for the upcoming season (and I'll try to contain my utter excitement - Season 2 is nearly here!). *Trailer included*


Rumour mill & spoilers


New character alert!Former basketball star Rick Fox takes on the role of a retired basketball star named Calvin Owens. Liv and Clive first meet him at the wake of his deceased college friend's wake. His buddy, Harry Cole, a degenerate gambler, was murdered right in front of Clive on the King Country Courthouse steps. Calvin is one of the last people to see Harry alive. 


Blaine's new businessIn the first episode, the antihero's and recently cured zombie's new business venture will be revealed. With all the evil, unremorseful and unapologetically hilarious behaviour, we will certainly get to see a new side to the power-hungry newly turned (back) human. Apparently, Liv also pays Blaine a surprise visit. (Revenge…

5 new shows to watch Autumn 2015

Autumn - the season of TV show premieres. (That's right, the Pumpkin Spice Latte's can wait) September is the January in TV business. It's the peek of the iceberg, the time for channels and networks to experiment. It's also the time that is very crucial - in some ways, a TV show's future partly depends on the views it gets at this time. With this post I will be counting down my pick of 5 TV shows that will premiere this Autumn. Let the countdown begin!


1) Quantico (ABC Family)
"Quantico" follows the lives of a group of 50 people, all of them different and all of them have different backgrounds. They have one thing in common: they are recruits training at the FBI Quantico Base. The individuals have various reasons for joining, however, most of their decisions are linked to their pasts. All of them in a fierce competitive competition, the recruits uncover secrets and lies about each other. That was nine months ago. Flashing forward to when they are training g…

Fixation Friday: Sense8 (Season 1 Summary)

Are you sensate (aware)? Because that is what the Sci-fi drama "Sense8" is all about - showing you the bigger picture.  Get ready to be sucked into a complex world that deals with politics, sexualtiy, religion, different cultures, science, identity and humanity.
In honour of the announcement on Aug. 8th 2015 that the critically acclaimed series "Sense8" has been renewed for a second season, I decided to break down season 1 for you. After doing so, I will interpret and review the series.

"Scream Queens": Get ready to shit your pants.

That's right - Get ready indeed to shit your pants with fear and laughter, because we just got to see the opening credits. The pilot episode of FOX's horror comedy is to be aired September 22nd. Let the countdown begin!


"You belong to me" are the words we get to hear over and over again followed by screams in the newly released opening credits. Creepy, right? 
"Scream Queens" is definitely one of the most anticipated shows for Fall 2015 television and not only because of the well known actors. It brings an interesting mix of gore and dark humor to the table, making it exactly my cup of tea. Good job Ryan Murphy!

Also, Ariana Grande (aka Chanel #2) and Nick Jonas (Boone) are nowhere to be seen in the opening credits! Are their characters going to die?


You haven't heard of Scream Queens yet?
20 years after a mysterious death in a sorority, another murder takes place, plunging the college into a pool of fear. Especially the head sorority lead by mean girl Chanel…

Stitchers Season 1 Finale - Did Cameron DIE?

Last night's "Stitchers" finale brought a roller coaster of emotions with it. Coming closer to solving the unknown mystery about the stitchers programme and her mother's and father's involvement within that programme, Kirsten also gets to see blasts from the (or should I say her) past. And finally,  one of the most important questions all "Stitchers" fans are asking themselves - is Cameron dead or alive?

As Cameron (Kyle Harris) and Detective Fisher (Damon Dayoub) get shot, leaving Fisher in ICU due to internal bleeding, Cameron makes the ultimate sacrifice to help ID'ing the shooters accomplice - he stops his own heart. 


Kirsten FINALLY knows about Camerons feelings

Cameron planned on stopping his heart for 4 minutes, giving Kirsten (Emma Ishta) a 3 minute window to stitch into her partner in crime. During the stitch she got to see Cameron's most precious memories, which (to her surprise) all involved her. "I had no idea" she says as she…
