Top 5 Shows on Amazon Prime Video

Hello people! For today’s blogmas post I decided to chat about my 5 favourite shows on Amazon Prime Video. I’ve been watching a lot of Prime Video lately because they have every season of Buffy (which is not on Netflix in Ireland) and they have some great original content as well.

When you sign up to Prime Video you get a 30-day free trial and it is £7.99 a month after that. Sign up here.

The Man in the High Castle

We started watching this show a few years ago and got bored after about episode 3 and dropped it. We started watching it again last year and fell in love with the show. We picked it up again where we stopped in case we lost interest again so I can’t say if we were just moody the first time around but I wish we had kept going, it is fantastic.

American Gods

This show is kind of crazy but it’s so good and it is stunning. Fantastic effects and a very strange and interesting story.

Outlander

LOVE ❤❤❤ I would love this show for the theme song alone but the whole lot is amazing. It does focus more on romance but there is a lot of history and drama in it too.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

It’s a classic! I am really enjoying reliving my youth watching this show. Each season brings back memories of where my life was at the time it was on TV.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel

I went into this show completely blind. I saw the 1950’s style clothes and wanted to check it out. It’s hilarious, I love it! A woman trying to make it as a comedian in the 50’s isn’t something you think about very often but it makes for very entertaining TV.

Blogmas 2018

I may be biting off more than I can chew but this year I have decided to take part in Blogmas. What is Blogmas? It’s kind of like an advent calendar of festive blog content posted every day for 25 days in December. I’m not sure I will be able to write 25 interesting Christmas themed posts but I should be able to post every day for 25 days. There just might be the odd bit of regular content thrown in.

Vlogmas is another option for the season. It’s the same as Blogmas but on YouTube with video content. I would love to try this but I seriously doubt I’d be up to the challenge. I struggle with getting a single video a week up.

So, even though I’m unsure of my ability I do have a few ideas for posts. These would work for Vlogmas and Blogmas.

They’ve taken the mice to Isengard | LOTR Mouse Movie

This is so good! The mice are just so cute and the end gave me a giggle. The hobbits and Gandalf are all mice while the orcs are rats and Sauron is a creepy owl.

Mice Animated Short Film by Jade Baillargeault, Nazli Doale, Dimitri James, Quang Daniel La, Morgane Lau, Mélanie Pango et Manon Pringault at ISART DIGITAL. Featured on CGMeetup.

“In a dark subway tunnel, a group of mice find a gold ring-pull that seems to have a mysterious effect on one of them. Not so far from them, an owl and his enslaved rats are watching. The owl sends his rats to get hold of this strange object…”

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

August 24th – 30th – Where do you post your reviews besides your blog? Please list them all so perhaps we can find some new sites. (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

Goodreads

I post all of my reviews here along with some mini-reviews that I don’t post here because they’re so short.

LibraryThing

I joined this site recently and have been adding my latest reviews to it. I’ll update past books soon.

BookLikes

BookLikes is a book blog hosting site. I was a member a few years ago and recently created a new shiny account and have been posting new reviews.

Facebook

Don’t really review here but I share my reviews on my page and post stories about what I’m reading.

YouTube

I post some full reviews but mostly small ones and book chats.

NetGalley

When I get a book from there.

When I really want to support an author I post on Google Play, Kobo and Barnes and Noble as well. I would post on Amazon but for some reason, it won’t lwet me.
