He's the fastest man alive. Show N' Read Saturday: THE FLASH

TV Station: The CW
Genre: Fantasy/Superheroes
My Favorite Character: Cisco
Can kids watch? You bet.

Words cannot truly express how BOMB this show is. I thought the first season of Arrow was boss, but the first season of The Flash was just amazing. From episode one until the end of the season, it was just one bad ass plot twist after another. The acting isn't the greatest ever, but trust me, you will not care. There's so much action and romance, and it's really just a show that everyone can love. Whether you are into comic books or not (like me), you can enjoy this show. It starts from the beginning, sort of reinventing the way Barry Allen became the Flash and just taking off from there. I am honestly so psyched for season two! So if you're looking for a new show to get into, I recommend this one. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

The last thing in the world Thom Creed wants is to add to his father's pain, so he keeps secrets. Like that he has special powers. And that he's been asked to join the League - the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. But the most painful secret of all is one Thom can barely face himself: he's gay.

But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, who can control fire but not her anger; Typhoid Larry, who can make anyone sick with his touch; and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide; but they will have to learn to trust one another when they uncover a deadly conspiracy within the League.

To survive, Thom will face challenges he never imagined. To find happiness, he'll have to come to terms with his father's past and discover the kind of hero he really wants to be.


It was really hard for me to find a book about superheroes that wasn't a comic book, but I managed to find one that sounded interesting. From the synopsis I get that there are some things that are similar to The Flash–keeping secrets from people they love, learning to trust and knowing when to let go, self-acceptance and other stuff. It has mixed reviews (like most books, yeah?), but I'm still intrigued. Might be worth picking up.
