PopCorn Corner: Parks and Recreation - Season 3

Parks and Recreation - Season 3 (2011)
Created by Greg Daniels & Michael Schur
Episodes: 16
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.







I feel like this is the season were everything falls into place and we finally reach the potential Parks and Rec had since season 1. For me season 3 through 7 is some of the best seasons of comedy shows out there, and I love it very much, it's usually where I start my re-watches too.

This is the first full season with Chris and Ben, so we get to know them pretty well. Chris, specially in this season isn't my favorite character, he's extremely positive and is terrible at delivering bad news, which is a give when you work with cities that are on the verge of being bankrupted, so I wasn't really a fan of how he always threw the bad news to Ben but overtime (and re-watches) he has become a better character for me, still not a favorite but I feel like I understand him more and his relationship with Ben.

Ben is one of my favorite characters of the show, probably my favorite after Leslie but it's hard to tell, he is sarcastic and has a sense of humor that is just like mine, I always love when he talks about something nerdy like Game of Thrones or Star Trek. His relationship with Leslie also progress in this season, at first they sort of hate each other, at least she does, them they start to respectfully fight each other and oh my god, this was so good, until they admit their feelings and finally get together and I WAS SO HAPPY.

So yeah, I highly recommend you watch this series if you like comedies or really just good tv shows.

Verditc: 7 out of 10 stars

Who Wore It Best: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Hey guys, today the Who Wore It Best is about The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, I really wanted to do one about this book because ALL of its covers are so pretty! I have one that I adore, but I honestly want to buy a thousand more editions, even in languages that I can't read, just for the covers. 

Let's take a look in some of the covers that I separated...


US Hardcover

This one was the original I think publication cover, it's the first edition on the US, I have this cover in a pocket paperback edition and it's gorgeous, from the details on the front to the spine, everything in this color schme of black, white and red is so beautiful and I love it.


US Paperback

This is a cover that had a lot of different editions from what I looked up, there is some that there is no circus in it, or the people are in white and not gray, some have a blurb, some not, so there is some variations but I this was the one with best quality to post here, I like it but I still prefer the one with only the circus.


Spanish

I don't know from which country this cover is, but it's in Spanish, it's honestly my least favorite cover for this book, I liked that they added color but the head of that woman is just so big, why did they choose this perspective. 


Russian

I really liked this take on the cover, is very different from the other ones and the color scheme is much more lively and colorful, but it does make it seem more like a straight out romance novel than this book actually is


Japanese

I really loved this one, is probably my second favorite and I would love to have this edition on my shelves even thought I wouldn't understand a thing, I love this blue and how the little dots seems to be starts and lights illuminating the whole cover.


Vintage Classics

I think this is a special edition of the book, I don't know but oh my God, this cover is gorgeous, my favorite definitely, it fits the whole atmosphere of the circus and it shows the two main characters without overtake anything, I just love it.


Indonesian 

Another one of my favorites, I loved the addition of gold to the color scheme, it gives the cover a whole new face while still having the main elements of the circus and the characters in it.


Russian Redesign, I think

I gathered that this one is also a Russian edition, I don't know if it's the first one, if it's from another country that also speaks Russian, I don't know, sorry, but oh my this is really different from the other designs too! I think the faces were a bit meh for me, but I like the way the title is done as if it's a cosmos.


There are a ton of other covers, and a lot of countries have different editions but these one were the ones that caught my attention and that stood out from the other designs, now tell me bellow which one is your personal favorite

June TBR

I think that June will finally be a chill month for publishing and not completely break me trying to read everything because everything looks so good.

My most anticipated read:

Midnight at the Eletric by Jodi Lynn Anderson
To be published on June 13, 2017 by HarperTeen

Kansas, 2065 Adri has been handpicked to live on Mars. But weeks before Launch, she discovers the journal of a girl who lived in her house over a hundred years ago, and is immediately drawn into the mystery surrounding her fate. While Adri knows she must focus on the mission ahead, she becomes captivated by a life that’s been lost in time…and how it might be inextricably tied to her own. 
Oklahoma, 1934 Amidst the fear and uncertainty of the Dust Bowl, Catherine longs for the immortality promised by a professor at a traveling show called The Electric. But as her family’s situation becomes more dire -- and the suffocating dust threatens her sister’s life -- Catherine must find the courage to sacrifice everything she loves in order to save the one person she loves most.
England, 1919 In the recovery following World War One, Lenore tries to come to terms with her grief for her brother, a fallen British soldier, and plans to sail to America in pursuit of a childhood friend. But even if she makes it that far, will her friend be the person she remembers, and the one who can bring her back to herself? 
While their stories spans thousands of miles and multiple generations, Lenore, Catherine, and Adri’s fates are entwined in ways both heartbreaking and hopeful.

Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau - this could be an amazing new fantasy series or not, really hope it's
Rules for Thieves by Alexandra Ott - this middle grade fantasy series sounds awesome
The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson


Such a Good Girl by Amanda K. Morgan - this sounds amazingly addictive
If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak
The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee - everyone is reading and LOVING this, so I can't wait for me to love it too
