Dana of DanaSquare and I are huge TV addicts and are always binge watching a show. This usually results in one of us telling the other they need to watch X or catch up on Y. One of those shows was Timeless.

Timeless has had a rocky road. After it’s first season it was cancelled but with fan support NBC decided to bring it back for a second season. And unfortunately after the second season, NBC has yet again cancelled this amazing show.

So, we’re putting together this list of reasons why we need to #SaveTimeless, find Timeless a new home and why you should start watching it, if you haven’t already!

5 Reasons We Feel You Need To Watch Timeless:

1. Every episode of Timeless takes place in a different pivotal moment in history (primarily American history in season 2) with an incredible detail to wardrobe and sets, but more importantly the show focuses on the stories of minorities in every episode. There is a heart to the writing that always pays mind to those stories that are forgotten in history books or down played.

2. Quite a few of the episodes have a huge impact. I remember when I was watching the episode where they go back to the days during the Women’s Suffrage and that episode had me in tears because it impacted me so much. And there are quite a few moments like that in this show.

3. It portrays intelligent and capable women who get the job done! And not only that but it’s also one of the most diverse casts ever!

4. THE SHIPS! Are you Team Lyatt (Lucy/Wyatt) or Lynn (Lucy/Flynn)? One thing is for sure we are Team Riya (Rufus/Jiya)! Dana is kinda leaning towards Lynn…I feel like there is something about his journal and the future that he’s not telling Lucy, plus Wyatt can be a jerk sometimes *cough end of season 2 cough*. Uhm… Stephanie is kind of in the same boat. As much as I love Lyatt…I also LOVE Lynn… maybe more so!!

5. The cliffhanger of Season 2… OMG. Guys, where they ended Season 2… there is SO much more for us to experience! I love where they left it off at and it makes you want so much more of the story! The writers have been amazing and deserve to tell us the rest of their story!
If you already watch and love Timeless, take the time to tweet about it with the hashtag #SaveTimeless to show your support to the show and hopefully encourage Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon to pick it up for a third season.

If you haven’t watched Timeless, you can catch it all on Hulu! We’re also thinking about doing a watchalong and you’re all invited to join us! We’ll post on twitter when we come up with dates for that!

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins brings us a riveting middle grade fantasy-adventure, perfect for fans of Lisa Graff.   The town of Journey's End may not literally be at the end of the world, but it sure feels like it to Nolie Stanhope. Spending the summer with her scientist father in the tiny Scottish village isn't exactly Nolie's idea of a good time, but she soon finds a friend: native Journey's Ender Bel McKissick. 
While Nolie's father came to Journey's End to study the Boundary--a mysterious fog bank offshore--Bel's family  can’t afford to consider it a threat.  The McKissick’s livelihood depends on the tourists drawn by legends of a curse. Still, whether you believe in magic or science, going into the Boundary means you'll never come back. 
…Unless you do. Albert Etheridge, a boy who disappeared into the Boundary in 1914, suddenly returns--without having aged a day and with no memory of the past hundred years. Then the Boundary starts creeping closer to the town, threatening to consume everyone within.
While Nolie's father wants to have the village evacuated, Bel's parents lead the charge to stay in Journey's End. Meanwhile, Albert and the girls look for ways to stop the encroaching boundary, coming across an ancient Scottish spell that requires magic, a quest, and a sacrifice.

Why You Should Read Journey’s End!

1. It’s freaking Rachel Hawkins!

I mean you can’t go wrong with a Rachel Hawkins book! I absolutely adored her Hex Hall series and I loved Rebel Belle and now she wrote a middle grade book! I mean, I cannot wait to pick this book up!

2. It takes place in a tiny Scottish village!

If you are as obsessed with Ireland or Scotland as I am, you’ll want to read this book just because of the fact it takes place in Scotland!

3. It’s about a mysterious fog that makes most people disappear

Okay, I don’t know about you? But this is super intriguing for me! I mean, I’m already a little skeptical about fog. I think it’s beautiful, but it can be downright creepy and eerie. So if there is a fog out there that makes people disappear and never to be seen again, I definitely do not want to be near it. But I sure as hell do want to read about it!
