Most people underestimate eyes. They're infinite. You look someone straight in the eye and your whole soul can be sucked out in a nanosecond. Other people's eyes are limitless and that's what scares me.
Let me just start the review by saying that this book is hilarious. Truly. It had me smiling and laughing on every other page and just being generally happy. After reading a whole lot of Fantasy for the last month, the humorous contemporary is a much-appreciated break from gore, monsters and killing. (Though I do miss magical powers a little bit)

Smash Bros is a game franchise that has brought family and friends together over a series of almost 20 years; from the retro N64, all the way to Nintendo's newest addition, the Wii U. But just how well did creator Masahiro Sakurai live up to the expectations of gamers and fans of the highly acclaimed franchise, with his newest release of Super Smash Bros (for the Wii U) compared to their previous titles? SSBY has successfully dealt with many problems, namely the game pacing issues. SSBY has managed to find a fine balance between the very fast faced SSB melee and the slow flow of SSB brawl, allowing for both casual and competitive play. The newest SSB4, also fixed several of the predecessors' game balance issues, where one character proves to be far stronger than other characters, such as MetaKnight in Brawl, or Fox in Medee. While many problems have been fixed, the introduction of DLC fighters released are considered to be much stronger than regular fighters from the base game. Thankfully the introduction of hot fixes and game patches has minimized the damage caused by regular and DLC fighter balance issues. These types of games are very competitive so people consider many techniques. People who watch the competition also have fun contributing. The program will for sure be enjoyable. In conclusion, taking into account all the pros and cons relevant to the game, we'd give it an overall 9/10.
Currently in the midst of its seventh season, Pretty Little Liars is a drama that has attracted millions of viewers. Four best friends, Spencer (played by Troian Bellasario), Aria (played by Lucy Hale), Hanna (played by Ashley Benson), and Emily (played by Shay Mitchell) are reunited after the leader of the group, Alison (played by Sasha Pieterse), is allegedly murdered. When they begin receiving messages from a mysterious villain named "A" who threatens and tortures them for the mistakes they've made before and after Alison was alive, how far will they go to bury their secrets?

Marvel's Unbeatable Squirrel Girl may not be as well known as the Avengers or the X-Men, but she's the only one who's beaten all the biggest and toughest - Wolverine? Check. Deapool? Yup. Doctor Doom AND Thanos? Got the better of both of them. Sometimes, cute and resourceful is totally better than raw power, and Doreen Green is proof. Read all about her adventures with Tippy Toe this summer!
