Earlier this month, I mentioned that I may do book reviews soon. With so many books to review, I’ve been thinking of a way to schedule posts. I’ve decided to post 2-3 book reviews weekly until I can have control over the reviewing. I’ll soon be posting a page on how my reviewing would work before getting down to the ‘dirty work’! 😛
NOTE: There is no telling how I may review a book. It can a short one, a lengthy one, in note form or simply a rant. And a fair heads up: I read varying genres.

What’s ‘Doubt’ about?
The legal drama stars Katherine Heigl as Sadie Ellis, a brilliant attorney who starts to fall for her charismatic client, a surgeon (Steven Pasquale) accused of murdering his girlfriend.
This show was pulled by CBS after two airings because of the poor ratings, but I’m going to give my verdict anyway.
When CBS showed the trailer for their new legal drama Doubt I was excited given that I love anything to do with the law. I love the courtroom drama, the presented cases, the jurors, the squabbling between the defence and the prosecution and even the judge! I also love seeing what the lawyers wore to trials. The show had promise written all over it, but one thing was wrong with it: Katherine Heigl. I have nothing against Heigl who is no stranger to TV (she was in Grey’s Anatomy’s & I can’t comment on this show because I’ve never watched it. I know! Cue the gasps!), but this is her 2nd failed TV series in 3 years (the other one was State of Affairs). She must be doing something wrong, but I think she held her own pretty well in this one.
I decided to give this show a go for Dulé Hill (I loved him on Psych!), but I ended up liking Laverne Cox as Cameron Wirth and Elliot Gould as Isaiah Roth as well.
I wish CBS would’ve given the series the benefit of the doubt and stick with it. I thought it was refreshing and the cast worked well. The show was well put together and better than most of the shows that cable is offering of late. Each character is interesting and the plot and acting are well balanced. I was looking forward to investing in the show right after my beloved Criminal Minds on Wednesdays, so thanks CBS for cancelling this series.
Thanks for not giving it the benefit of the doubt.
“And they lived happily ever after.” Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there?
I don’t believe in happily ever afters. Life is not a fairytale, but reality. I have goals to achieve and I have to work hard in getting to my destination.
Clichés become clichés for a reason. Tell us about the last time a bird in the hand was worth two in the bush for you.
*Shrugs* Seriously, you want me to recall that time now?
This is the 8th week of Cee’s Share Your World Challenge & boy, am I late!
When you cut something with scissors, do you move your jaw (as if you were about to chew)?
Do you chew your pens and pencils?
Yes… when I was young.

Are you a collector of anything? If so what?
I used to collect pens, now I’m a book hoarder.
What size is your bed?
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week was okay, but for this week, I am looking forward to the Carnival holidays because I’ll be away from work. I’ll try to get enough rest and catch up on some writing.
