‘Game of Thrones’ Bran Stark all grown up in Season 6 …

Bran Stark in season 6 of Game of Thrones

Bran sat out season five, as his character was holed up learning to master his ability to control animals’ minds.

The British teenager plays the paralyzed son of Ned and Catelyn Stark, who is able to transport himself into the minds of animals to control them.

Bran was last seen in the season four finale, when he met the Three-Eyed Raven, played by Max von Sydow in the new season.

The latest photo of Bran makes it look like he’s much more determined, maybe even confident, and definitely healthier looking.

“Game of Thrones” returns to HBO this April.

There’s so much to look forward in the year 2016 and one of those is a new show titled “Shadowhunters based on the popular book series by Cassandra Clare.” With its premiere date nearing, the show isn’t wasting any time in capturing the audience’s attention through teasers and spoilers.

Shadowhunters follows Clary Fray, a seemingly normal New York City teen who discovers she’s a part of a secret half-human, half-angel race known as Shadowhunters after a mysterious battle rages right before her eyes on her 18th birthday. When her mother is attacked and kidnapped, Clary must join the other Shadowhunters she’s discovered to learn the ways of Shadowhunters and save her mother from the evil Valentine Morgenstern.

Shadowhunters premieres January 12, 2016 on FreeForm (formerly ABC Family).

The show will air on January 21 on The CW.The series will also star Casper Crump as returning warlord Vandal Savage – as well as Neal McDonough as HIVE boss Damien Darhk and Mathew Nable as the seemingly-deceased Ra’s al Ghul. 

The show has been confirmed for a thirteen episode run – which is flawless for this kind of project and one that I hope we see utilized well going forward. Then character Rip Hunter gives his team a brief pep talk followed by more ass kicking and explosions.

Marvel`s Agent Carter Season 2 Premiers January 2016

Marvel’s Agent Carter

The eight action-packed episodes that make up the first season of Marvel’s Agent Carter tell a rich, tight, tale of espionage that begins small, with Howard Stark recruiting Peggy to retrieve his stolen inventions, before spiraling and taking a detour to Russia with the Howling Commandos, hinting at the precursor to the Black Widow training program, and culminating in a finale that proves once again why you shouldn’t send a man to do a woman’s job.

Set against the sexism of the 1940s, the series captures the spirit of the era in a way that allows Peggy to rise above it all while also focusing on who she is post-WWII and post-Steve Rogers.

With excellent supporting work from James D’Arcy, Enver Gjokaj, and Bridget Regan, the show is an all-around entertaining watch that merges easily and effortlessly into the larger MCU. But even if you’re not a big fan of Marvel or comics, the series can stand on its own and is absolutely worth your time.(source TV.com)

Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

HER PERFECT LIFE IS A PERFECT LIE.

As a teenager at the prestigious Bradley School, Ani FaNelli endured a shocking, public humiliation that left her desperate to reinvent herself. Now, with a glamorous job, expensive wardrobe, and handsome blue blood fiancé, she’s this close to living the perfect life she’s worked so hard to achieve.

But Ani has a secret.

There’s something else buried in her past that still haunts her, something private and painful that threatens to bubble to the surface and destroy everything.

With a singular voice and twists you won’t see coming, Luckiest Girl Alive explores the unbearable pressure that so many women feel to “have it all” and introduces a heroine whose sharp edges and cutthroat ambition have been protecting a scandalous truth, and a heart that’s bigger than it first appears.

The question remains: will breaking her silence destroy all that she has worked for—or, will it at long last, set Ani free?

A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler

“It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon. . .” This is how Abby Whitshank always begins the story of how she fell in love with Red that day in July 1959. The Whitshanks are one of those families that radiate togetherness: an indefinable, enviable kind of specialness. But they are also like all families, in that the stories they tell themselves reveal only part of the picture. Abby and Red and their four grown children have accumulated not only tender moments, laughter, and celebrations, but also jealousies, disappointments, and carefully guarded secrets. From Red’s father and mother, newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to Abby and Red’s grandchildren carrying the family legacy boisterously into the twenty-first century, here are four generations of Whitshanks, their lives unfolding in and around the sprawling, lovingly worn Baltimore house that has always been their anchor.

Brimming with all the insight, humor, and generosity of spirit that are the hallmarks of Anne Tyler’s work, A Spool of Blue Thread tells a poignant yet unsentimental story in praise of family in all its emotional complexity. It is a novel to cherish.

The Stranger by Harlan Coben

The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar, or a parking lot, or at the grocery store. His identity is unknown. His motives are unclear. His information is undeniable. Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world.

Adam Price has a lot to lose: a comfortable marriage to a beautiful woman, two wonderful sons, and all the trappings of the American Dream: a big house, a good job, a seemingly perfect life.

Then he runs into the Stranger. When he learns a devastating secret about his wife, Corinne, he confronts her, and the mirage of perfection disappears as if it never existed at all. Soon Adam finds himself tangled in something far darker than even Corinne’s deception, and realizes that if he doesn’t make exactly the right moves, the conspiracy he’s stumbled into will not only ruin lives—it will end them.

The Crossing by Michael Connelly

Detective Harry Bosch has retired from the LAPD, but his half-brother, defense attorney Mickey Haller, needs his help. A woman has been brutally murdered in her bed and all evidence points to Haller’s client, a former gang member turned family man. Though the murder rap seems ironclad, Mickey is sure it’s a setup.

Bosch doesn’t want anything to do with crossing the aisle to work for the defense. He feels it will undo all the good he’s done in his thirty years as a homicide cop. But Mickey promises to let the chips fall where they may. If Harry proves that his client did it, under the rules of discovery, they are obliged to turn over the evidence to the prosecution.

Though it goes against all his instincts, Bosch reluctantly takes the case. The prosecution’s file just has too many holes and he has to find out for himself: if Haller’s client didn’t do it, then who did? With the secret help of his former LAPD partner Lucy Soto, Harry starts digging. Soon his investigation leads him inside the police department, where he realizes that the killer he’s been tracking has also been tracking him.

Shelby takes her three-year-old daughter and heads south to seek comfort in her hometown, where she meets someone new: Griff Lott, a successful contractor. But her husband had secrets she has yet to discover. Even in this small town, surrounded by loved ones, danger is closer than she knows—and threatens Griff, as well. And an attempted murder is only the beginning
