We all have our favorite books, shows, and movies that we look forward to going home to at the end of a long day. Let me share mine with you! These are in no particular order.
1. Neil Gaiman
As I said last week, he is my favorite author. After a long day, it feels amazing to go home and curl up in a ball with any one of his novels. Lately, my adoration has even changed to watching his videos and old speeches while I get my work done. Just one more way to support amazing talent.
Joss Whedon is another amazing man. One of his most underrated yet most wonderful shows is Firefly. I can always look forward to this show dealing with a wide variety of unusual and well-developed characters. The language used, a combination of Chinese and English, never ceases to amaze me. It always helps to look forward to some Kaylee. She makes everything better!
3. The Mortal Instruments
I abso-fricking-lutely devoured these books. I could not put them down. I fell in love with every single one of these characters and cried every single time any one of them died. It may sound dramatic, but I could not get enough of the romance between characters! And, it was wonderful that the jokes were carried between books. I was excited to see this continuation.
4. Harry Potter
10 POINTS TO RAVENCLAW! Hell yeah! Ravenclaw forever, my friends! Harry Potter was where I truly began to feel myself becoming an avid reader. I fell in love with the characters and, where other people just saw a story, I learned about friendship, courage, and strength.
5. Nightmare Before Christmas
Is it a Christmas movie? Is it a Halloween movie? Who cares?! Jack and Sally have always been two of my dearest loves. I think that this movie provides a wonderful lesson about loving yourself and accepting who you are.
6. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
You want it, Buffy has it! Again, Joss Whedon provides us with a wonderful cast and relatable situations. In addition to the monsters and chaos, that is.
7. How I Met Your Mother
Even though I came into watching this show late, this show was my drug. It is the only show that I have ever been able to successfully binge watch!
8. M. Night Shyamalan
Despite most people's assertions that this amazing man's movies are terrifying, I absolutely love them! He never fails to deliver the surprise endings or important messages that I seek!
9. Gilmore Girls
Guilty pleasures-everyone has them! I love the connection between Rory and Lorelai because it is so much like the relationship I have with my mom. She is definitely one of my best friends.
While others obsess over The Walking Dead, which I don't understand, I will happily sit and watch my iZombie. I love the character development in this show as well as the twists, changes, and cliffhangers. I will never be happy to see this show come to a close.
What fandoms are you a part of? Do you obsess over any of the fandoms that I do?
