My name is Amber and I'm an aspiring YA author with a passion for movies and novels. If it's young adult AND paranormal and/or romantic (best if all three!) I'm there. Also, it seems fair to warn everyone that I am not a robot or a zombie and when it comes to the all important question: zombie or unicorns, I must side with the unicorns because they were my first love.

Happily Ever Endings are ending summaries of novels that will be in series for your reading pleasure. That way, you can refer to them when the next book comes out if you can't remember exactly what happened.
The CW canceled The Secret Circle today and I have to admit, I'm pretty pissed. I'll be honest, this show got off to a really rocky start. I kept waiting for it to get out of the cliche rut and start to get into some good old fashion witchy fun. About halfway through the season, it finally started to do that.
Last night was The Secret Circle's season finale and it was fantastic. It delivered on every single angle and even left a few threads untied to lead into a second season. But it won't get the chance to follow these threads because it was cut short.
I first started watching this show because I was a fan of Britt Robertson (playing the lead character Cassie Blake) from her earlier work and I wanted her to bring those acting skills into this show. She wasn't as strong as I wanted her to be in the beginning but as her character grew, so did she. I also had a hard time connecting with any of these characters. But after about seven (which is a lot of episodes) episodes, the story really started to get good and I started to become invested in most of the character's lives. I decided I really liked reliable Diana, loved Faye's wicked streak and thought Melissa was an amazing friend and the smartest of the bunch. Adam started to become more than just the stereotypical "good" guy and Jake became more than the normal "bad" boy. They all started to feel real.
As the plot began to grow, so did the mystery and so did my need to tune in every night. I just can't believe that they canceled a show that was finally getting better but kept around several shows that have had even more disappointing numbers. Next thing I know, The CW is going to cancel The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural. Then what am I going to do with my week?
In short, I think this decision really sucks. After the show finally shows some potential, The Powers That Be decide to throw it out. I feel sort of cheated because I've watched this show faithfully from the beginning, let my guard down and really started to like it and then they rip the filming out from underneath me. It's definitely going to make me even more weary to try one of their new pilots for fear of the same thing happening.
RIP The Secret Circle. Sleep in peace and know that you have wronged but at least you went out with one helluva bang--and a ship fire, some great kisses, killer black outfits, a power struggle, one magical relic to end them all and some breathtaking action scenes. This girl, at least, will remember you.
