PopCorn Corner: Parks and Recreation - Season 2

Parks and Recreation - Season 2 (2009 - 2010)
Created by Greg Daniels & Michael Schur
Episodes: 24
Runtime: 22 min.
Genre: Comedy

The absurd antics of an Indiana town's public officials as they pursue sundry projects to make their city a better place.

The second season of Parks and Recreation still isn't of the best of the show, there is much room for improvement but at least this time around we have enough episodes to get to know its characters and start to caring about them.

One of my favorite things of this season is that Ron gets more scream time and getting to know him, develop his relationship with Leslie is just one of the greatest things of this show. They are both head strong characters with completely different views of the world that still manage to be friends based on their respect and admiration from each other.Leslie and Ann's friendship also grows and turn into an actual friendship and not just a partnership to cover the pit, I love their relationship and how strongly into each others side they are.

On the more romantic side of things Leslie finally stops mopping around for Mark (at least for most of the time) and he actually becomes bearable when they manage to be friends. She dates two guys, who aren't that great as characters, but towards the end of the season Ben comes into the show and I swear it's magical, there is nothing romantic between the two of them yet since Ben is trying to shut down the Park's department but it's amazing to see the start of their relationship and they irritating and getting into each others neck. Prepare to see a lot of gushing about this couple in the next reviews of the series, because they are one of my ultimate OTPs.

Overall this season is an improvement on the first one, we get to know the characters and they start to resemble real life people, with personalities and traits, there is also the start of the greatest friendships and dynamics of this show. There is still room for improvement but things are starting to look better.

Verdict: 6 out of 10 stars

Who Wore It Best: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Unless you live under a rock you probably already heard of the books of the ACOTAR series and the Throne of Glass series, both by Sarah J. Maas and this week the third book, A Court of Wings and Ruin finally came out and since I'm really excited about it I'm doing the Who Wore It Best all about this series.

Since there isn't all that much different covers for these books I'll be doing things a bit different...


I personally love the UK mostly because is the one that I own, but also because I think is just prettier the whole read background, the spine is also prettier, with a bit of thorns and not just the title and black like the US one, tell me bellow which one is YOUR favorite

Now this is where things get weird, I don't know why the UK edition insisted on using the thorns theme for the cover since it don't really fit with the story anymore, the spine is still beautiful though and I'm glad they didn't insisted on putting the same chapter headers as the first book. I definitely prefer the US one this time, seeing the Night Court in the background is just <3 and is more detailed and fits the story better. What is your opinion

Why, oh, why do we have thorns on the cover again, I guess the UK covers just decided it was too late to back down now and this will just keeps going for the 6 books of the series, also this sort of green-blue is really scaring me because it seems to be super bold and not my favorite at all. I'll definitely go with the US one again, the green is more darker and the details stand out again.

Trying to decide which books to put on my May TBR is like torture, there is so many good books coming out this month!! I can't decide so this will be only a loosely list of books that I intend to read during May and hopefully I'm in a good reading month so I can get to most of these.

My most anticipated title of the month is:

Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy
To be published on May 9, 2017 by Balzer + Bray

Ramona was only five years old when Hurricane Katrina changed her life forever. 
Since then, it’s been Ramona and her family against the world. Standing over six feet tall with unmistakable blue hair, Ramona is sure of three things: she likes girls, she’s fiercely devoted to her family, and she knows she’s destined for something bigger than the trailer she calls home in Eulogy, Mississippi. 
But juggling multiple jobs, her flaky mom, and her well-meaning but ineffectual dad forces her to be the adult of the family. Now, with her sister, Hattie, pregnant, responsibility weighs more heavily than ever. The return of her childhood friend Freddie brings a welcome distraction. Ramona’s friendship with the former competitive swimmer picks up exactly where it left off, and soon he’s talked her into joining him for laps at the pool. 
But as Ramona falls in love with swimming, her feelings for Freddie begin to shift too, which is the last thing she expected. With her growing affection for Freddie making her question her sexual identity, Ramona begins to wonder if perhaps she likes girls and guys or if this new attraction is just a fluke. Either way, Ramona will discover that, for her, life and love are more fluid than they seem.

Girl out of Water by Laura Silverman - everyone is loving so much this book, I really hope to love it too, it sounds like a great contemporary novel
Dreamfall by Amy Plum
Avenged by Amy Tintera - I haven't read the first one yet, but I hope I read and love it and jump right into the second one

Antisocial by Jillian Blake
Queer There and Everywhere by Sarah Prager - Historical non-fiction about Queer people that changed the world, yes please
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon - diversity ftw + shippy romance
Romancing the Throne by Nadine Jolie Courtney - this could be either really fun fluffy or a disaster
