A Loki Summer

 I know Tom has played a lot of characters over time, but I vaguely remember him in anything. Loki has to be my favorite character of his and the writers must love Loki too. Because they add something to his character that excites you. You can't help but tune in. On the other hand, many fans feel the summer series on Disney was cut short. The episodes weren't long enough in spite of so much happening and well explained. But just remember..this is what makes us beg for more. And I'm sure Hiddleston is delighted too.

Liu Xue Yi

 in 2013 he made his official debut by appearing in the costume drama "Shangguan Waner".

 Yi just might be one of the most under-rated actors around. You just never know what you'll get. His character was rather twisted in Love & Redemption, but I love his character from the Lost Tomb series the most. You might get a different actor for the ML but he plays old the oldest friends of the ML. Still, one wonders is he really good or he could be bad. Sometimes, he has to do bad things to get some things done yet he never goes too far. Recently, I have been watching him in Ancient Poetry. Naturally of the epic fantasy nature and honestly, I had never seen him smile until then. He is the ML in Qing Luo which is a historical comedy (this is something the Chinese are very good at). Of course, he's the stoic one. He has more ML dramas scheduled in the future.

Yi is 31.

Date with a book - That Weekend

Need to find the dark side of your summer reading? You might find Kara Thomas your new favorite YA author.

Kara is the author of The Darkest CornersLittle Monsters, and The Cheerleaders. She is also the author of the Prep School Confidential series from St. Martin's Griffin under the pen name Kara Taylor.

Kara has written for Warner Brothers Television and currently writes full-time on Long Island, where she lives with her husband and rescue cat.

 Three best friends, a lake house, a secret trip - what could go wrong?

It was supposed to be the perfect prom weekend getaway. But it's clear something terrible happened when Claire wakes up alone and bloodied on a hiking trail with no memory of the past forty-eight hours.

Three went up the mountain, but only one came back.

Now everyone wants answers - most of all, Claire. She remembers Friday night, but after that... nothing. And now Kat and Jesse - her best friends - are missing.

That weekend changes everything.

What happened on the mountain? And where are Kat and Jesse? Claire knows the answers are buried somewhere in her memory, but as she's learning, everyone has secrets - even her best friends. And she's pretty sure she's not going to like what she remembers.
