Opinion: We Don’t Need More Book-to-Screen Adaptations

Last Wednesday, one year almost to the day after the finale of Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments on Freeform, Constantin Film and the BBC dropped a bomb on fans of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter Chronicles: they’re making a TV Show out of…

You Need To Read ‘Red, White & Royal Blue’

I’m not quite sure how Casey Mcquinston’s debut novel Red, White & Royal Blue escaped my notice while I was doing research for my most anticipated books of 2019 list, or during all the time I spent browsing Book Twitter…

‘Shadowhunters’ Series Finale Review: ‘Alliance’ and ‘All Good Things…’

Well. There we go. Just like that, it’s all over. The end of an era. A strange, frustrating era, in which I for some reason committed to reviewing a show that’s mildly amusing at best and downright offensive at worst.…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×20 Review: ‘City of Glass’

It’s the last regular episode of season three of Shadowhunters, and now all that’s left is the 2 ½ hour finale. This episode was underwhelming and cringe-worthy in a lot of ways, as Shadowhunters episodes usually are, but it had…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×19 Review: ‘Aku Cinta Kamu’

It’s the second-to-last episode of the season, I am still so confused about so many things, and I have no idea how this show is going to wrap things up in one episode. Let’s discuss season three episode nineteen, Aku…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×18 Review: ‘The Beast Within’

It’s mid April and only a few weeks before the series finale, which apparently makes it the perfect time for a special Halloween episode. Gotta love Shadowhunters logic. Endarkened, maybe? Source After last episode’s successful mission to retrieve the Heavenly…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×17 Review: ‘Heavenly Fire’

Shadowhunters seems to be making up for all those pointless filler episodes at the start of the season by cramming lots of stuff into this one. I enjoyed a lot of it, and it made me feel things at times,…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×16 Review: ‘Stay With Me’

We’re more than halfway through the final half season of Shadowhunters and finally, finally, the main plot seems to be going somewhere. Is it going where I want it to? I’m not sure. Big changes are being made, seemingly just for the…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×15 Review: ‘To the Night Children’

Another week, another Shadowhunters episode with little to no direction or connection to the overall arc of the season. Did anything really happen in this episode? Not really. Could you have skipped it without missing anything? Probably. Did I expect anything…

My Sports Wishes: Basically Just #MenlykOut

This is an entry in Fangirlish’s What Sports Mean To Me series, where our writers discuss memorable sports moments and how sports have impacted their lives. A few years ago, my list of “sports wishes” was a very long one. I wanted…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×14 Review: ‘A Kiss From A Rose’

You’d think that at some point I’d stop being surprised by Shadowhunters. I’m not even sure I’m surprised right now. I’m disappointed, yes. I had hoped this show would take a different direction with the various storylines it has introduced…

‘Shadowhunters’ Season 3 Episode 3 Review: ‘Beati Bellicosi’

Beati Bellicosi was a bit of a filler episode. The kind Shadowhunters likes to throw in every once in a while even though their plot is already convoluted enough that even ten episodes doesn’t seem like nearly enough. This episode was…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×12 Review: ‘Original Sin’

Shadowhunters only has a few episodes to wrap up the entire series, and in typical Shadowhunters it is breezing through the last few books while attempting to answer all the questions they’ve left unanswered. Couples are getting together, convenient plot holes…

My Most Hated Sports Team: The Montreal Canadiens

This is an entry in Fangirlish’s What Sports Mean To Me series, where our writers discuss memorable sports moments and how sports have impacted their lives. Sometimes, when it comes to sports fandom, it’s more fun to cheer against other teams than…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×11 Review: ‘Lost Souls’

After almost a year off, Shadowhunters is back with the second half of its third and final season, and it’s as fun, as confusing, and as busy as always. This midseason premiere was… an episode of Shadowhunters, and I didn’t…

Shadowhunters releases first trailer for season 3B

It’s almost that time of year again. After a very long hiatus, Shadowhunters returns for its final season on February 25th. Freeform has just released the very first trailer for the new half-season. As expected, it’s… a bit of a mess.…

Books We’re Looking Forward To In 2019

With 2018 drawing to a close, it’s time to look ahead to 2019, and to the amazing books we can’t wait to read in the new year. This list could probably be twice this long, but because we’re still making…

Our Top Movie Moments of 2018

  2018 was a great year for movies. We got great representation for many underrepresented groups, we got fun musicals, amazing rom-coms, and so many iconic moments. Some of them made us cry, others made us laugh, others made us…

‘Anne With An E’ 2×06-2×10 Review: Big Words And Bigger Ideas

Anne With An E is back for a second season, and this one is every bit as good as the first one, if not better. Now, we know what to expect from this show. We’re not looking for a word-for-word…

Shadowhunters To End After Season 3

So long, Shadowhunters. I’d say I’m going to miss you, but, well, I’m not sure I will. Freeform announced today that Shadowhunters, a very loose adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s bestselling Mortal Instruments series, would end after the upcoming second half of its third season.…
