What Should I Read Next? Part 2

It has been awhile since I revisited the age old question, what should I read next? Between work and school, finding time to read for pleasure can be tough, but the holidays provide some much needed down time to catch up. While none of these books are hot off the press, they were all fantastic reads, and I highly recommend giving them a chance.     If you liked Supernatural + CSI = Read “The Harry Dresden Series” What it is: Harry Dresden is a wizard in present day Chicago,…

Supernatural 12.07 “Rock Never Dies” Top 5

I love when the Boys team up with Cas and Crowley. It was a certainly a treat to have all four of them working together on a common goal this episode. They work together to get closer to capturing Lucifer, trying ultimately to put him back in the cage. Dean and Sam are summoned out to Los Angeles to help the dynamic duo of Cas and Crowley on their mission. There was certainly small but great, warm moment, some funny moments, and more of Sam being the moral compass. Here…

Supernatural 12.06 “Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox” Top 5

Sam and Mary

This show continues to make me love it more and more. After 11+ seasons, I still love it. It still makes me laugh. This episode was incredible in a lot of different ways. We get to have Jody Mills back. Mary Winchester shows up again. There’s laughs. There’s great emotional moments. There’s action. There is a party of other hunters. And we get back to fighting a demon. “Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox” perfectly brought together so many elements. Here are my top 5 moments from this week’s episode.…

Supernatural 12.03 “The Foundry” Top 5

Now that Sammy’s free of Toni and the rest of the British division of the Men of Letters, it’s time for Supernatural to get back to the family business! Mary and her boys investigate an abandoned house, and things unravel from there. By ‘unravel’ I mean they went to the creepiest dollhouse ever. Meanwhile, Cas and Crowley give us our favorite heaven and hell team-up to try and track down Lucifer before he unleashes more mischief on Earth. Mary and Cas I don’t know what it is about the relationship between…

Supernatural 12.02 “Mamma Mia” Top 5

Supernatural’s premier was great, but it didn’t really dig into just what it means for Mary Winchester to be back from the dead. ‘Mamma Mia’ managed to dive into that idea a bit deeper, which resulted in an episode with a few more feels than the first. Don’t worry though, tonight wasn’t just feelsy moments between the Winchester clan. You also have the misadventures of Crowley and Rowena to look forward to.   It’s the Thought That Counts? Ah, Crowley… you tried. We were all rooting for you, bud. I…

Supernatural 12.01 “Keep Calm and Carry On” Top 5

My word, y’all. Would you look at that headline? Supernatural 12.01. 12 seasons. That’s a pretty long ‘On the road so far’. Hiatus was rough after season 11 proved to be one of the best in the show’s tenure. Though it had a rocky finale, it left just enough to make us all go ‘but wait… what now!?’ Keep Calm and Carry On has never been advice that the Winchester family’s been exceptional at following, but it the title left me intrigued.  You know, in case Mary Winchester’s return to both…

Supernatural 2.23 “Alpha and Omega” Top 5

This week on Supernatural, we all head in to the final showdown as the sun begins to dim and God is left teetering on the edge of death. With everything thrown at Amara last week having no impact what so ever, things are looking pretty bleak for our heroes. Faced with either scrambling for a plan b or throwing in the towel, it’s down to the wire for humanity and the supernatural alike. The road so far has been a long one, and now it’s time to carry on. No…

Supernatural 11.22 “We Happy Few” Top 5

The whole gang is back this week as Supernatural sets everything in motion for next week’s finale. With the big fight looming, Chuck and the Winchesters not only need to come up with a game plan, but also round up a small army and deal with a less-than-happy Lucifer. Without any Archangels to have his back in the fight against Amara, it’s up to team free will to recruit from heaven to hell if they want the world to keep spinning. The end is frickin’ nigh, y’all! Here are my…

Supernatural 11.21 “All in the Family” Top 5

  This week on Supernatural, plans are starting to fall into place in preparation for the final showdown with the Darkness. With the big Chuck reveal last week, the question on everyone’s mind is whether or not he plans on helping the Winchesters or getting out of the way? And will his power be enough to truly take Amara out once and for all? Look away if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, because here are my top 5 moments for “All in the Family” 5. Gone but not Forgotten…

Supernatural 11.19 “The Chitters” Top 5

This week on Supernatural, Sam and Dean venture to the Western Slope of Colorado to investigate some missing persons who keep reappearing with green eyes and pointy teeth. “The Chitters” gave us a fun monster of the week episode while we all wait to see what exactly is going to happen with Amara. Here are my top 5 from this week’s episode:   5. Monster in the Woods Maybe it’s because the second episode ever of Supernatural took place in the woods of Colorado, but “Chitters” really felt like a…

Here are my top 5 moments from “Hell’s Angel.”   5. Back in the Game After a long break from our favorite cast of supporting characters, it’s fantastic to see them all back in action. This week, we got Crowley, Lucifer, Casifer, Castiel, and Rowena. Then you throw in a…

Supernatural 11.17 “Red Meat” Top 5

This week’s Supernatural showed us what happens when a hunt doesn’t go so well. Possible character deaths, disastrous rescue attempts, and a serious run of bad luck plague the Winchesters this week as they try to rescue two hikers from werewolves. Here are my top 5 for “Red Meat.”   5. Incongruous Timelines One of the things I’ve really enjoyed about this season of Supernatural are the risks the writers are taking in their story-telling formats. With a devoted fan base going 11 seasons strong (soon to be 12 seasons!),…

Supernatural 11.16 “Safe House” Top 5

This week on Supernatural, Jim Beaver and Steven Williams returned to reprise their roles as Bobby and Rufus while putting the Supernatural family on an emotional roller coaster as we remember how much we miss those characters and face a brand new monster. Here were my top 5 moments from “Safe House.”   5. New Monster After 11 years on the air as a show that specializes in monsters, it must be challenging to come up with something fresh and new for dedicated fans. Sometimes little twists and loopholes can…

Supernatural Season Favorites

  As we begin another week of Hellatus, I couldn’t help but think of Supernatural. I decided to look back on the previous seasons and try to choose my favorite from each of them. Below is my list. Season 1 It’s very difficult to choose the best or a favorite episode from season 1. They are all just so good. Of course, there’s “Pilot”, which introduced us to the Winchester Bros. This is a very important episode. It’s how the show draws people in for the next 11 seasons. Because…

Supernatural 11.15 “Beyond the Mat” Top 5

This week on Supernatural, it looks like hell is back in business and Crowley is back in the game. Here are my top 5 moments from “Beyond the Mat.” 5.Burnout For 11 seasons, I’ve been watching these two brothers fight the supernatural week after week. While I sit on the couch, enjoying the down time from my day job, Sam and Dean are on the case, hunting monsters and demons alike, preventing more apocalypses than any person should have to face, and going through volumes of lore like it’s no…
