I know, I have totally been playing around with my Tuesday features for a while now. Originally there was no post on Tuesdays, then there was the Bookcomet Awards, then there was Series Spotlight and now there is “It’s Tuesday”.
It’s Tuesday is kind of going to be my little random everything post. I have been tossing up for ages how to work into my blogging schedule a couple of posts and this is how I’m going to do it. There will be news, movie reviews (usually books that have been turned into movie/TV series, keeping with the theme, ya know?) and some really random stuff.
First off, WordPress was kind enough to enlighten me to the fact that it’s my bloggoversary. That’s right, on the 18th of March 2013, Bookcomet was established *wipes tear from eye*, I never knew. A lot has changed over 1 year. A LOT.
Five things that happened to me today:
- I tried this slushy thing made with ice, pear, fresh ginger and lemon. It was AMAZING.
- Had my last test for a little while, which is so good.
- Had my first American relief teacher. She was awesome.
- Made little moulds of trilobites (weirdly cute).
- Found out it was my blog’s anniversary. Aw.
I know I have been meaning to do a little news post for a while, so this is kind of old news, but whatever.

Binge-watching TV shows?
Does anyone have any good TV shows that they’d recommend? I’m looking to get into that because I don’t watch much TV and I’d really like to find some good shows that I can get into. I already know and adore Supernatural, Buffy and Angel!
Here are some I already know of and am considering:
- Pretty Little Liars
- Downtown Abbey
- The Tudors (huuuuge history nerd)
- Game of Thrones
