Stranger Things 3 Book Tag {Tag Thursday}

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Tag Thursday! It’s been a while since I did a book tag, but when I saw that Flavia The Bibliophile created a Stranger Things 3 Book Tag, I just could not resist. I adore Stranger Things, and in just 3 seasons it’s quickly become one of my all-time favorite shows. I was honestly really worried about season 3, because I feared that it wouldn’t live up to the amazing first two seasons, but honestly, I should not have worried one bit, because IT WAS SOOO GOOD. Also, I love Steve. And Robin. And Dustin. So if you haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend it. And without further ado, let’s just dive into the book tag!

My Favorite Binge-Worthy TV Shows {Top Ten Tuesday}

180904 Binge-Worthy TV Shows

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

With the new TV season starting, today is all about binge-worthy TV shows! (Because it doesn’t always have to be about books). Now, I used to be a huge tv show junkie. Meaning, I followed about 10-15 shows religiously and watched them every evening as soon as they came out. Lately, I’ve almost stopped that completely. Why?

One, because a lot of shows I used to love just seem to go on too long and I end up losing interest.
Two, because I started preferring binge-watching shows with shorter seasons over weekly watching shows with longer seasons.

To me, shorter seasons make for tighter storylines and are just much more fun to binge-watch. I watch them for a certain period, as long as it takes me to finish them, and then I move on to the next tv show. So these are a few of my latest binge-watch obsessions!

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Do you know the saying “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain”?

I feel that way about tv shows. They either get cancelled too early, or they just go on for too long and end up messing up in one way or another. Especially when it comes to their characters. No matter how much I can love a show, nothing annoys me quite as much as a badly or unfairly handled character. So today, I decided to focus on a few of the characters that I feel deserved better.

Note: this list contains spoilers so proceed with caution.

November 2017: The Month of Annette Marie, Superheroes & Stranger Things {Monthly Wrap Up}

November 2017

Hi guys, and welcome to my November wrap up!

Even if I may have only read three books this month, I think I can finally say that I have beaten my reading slump. Or to be more correct, Annette Marie has beaten my reading slump, because all three books are part of her Steel & Stone series. And even though it’s “only” three books, I have sped through them, fallen in love with the characters and their world and have had my heart racing at the thought of coming home at night and getting to read, which is the joy of reading I have sorely missed the past few months.

So here’s what I’ve been up to in November!

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today is all about fandoms.

According to Wikipedia:
Fandom is a term used to refer to a subculture composed of fans characterized by a feeling of empathy and camaraderie with others who share a common interest.

Now, I admit I am a HUGE fangirl. The phrase “I don’t like, I OBSESS.” definitely applies to me. I just love feeling passionate about something I like, and sharing that with other fans who feel the same. It’s why I started blogging about books. It’s why I love going to live shows by my fave bands and artists. It’s why I love fan fiction and fan art.

That’s why I think I’m a member of a LOT of fandoms. I could never really limit it to just ten, so I decided to feature a few fandoms that are the ones I believe have made the most impact on my life so far. They are the ones I will think about first when I think about fandoms and the ones I believe other people may connect to me the most. Am I still active in all of them? Not necessarily. Do I love every single song by that band, or every episode of a show? Not necessarily. But do I still care deeply about them all and will I still keep excitedly rambling on about it when the opportunity arises? OH YES.

Also, I didn’t really feature the book fandom, because… duh. I think we can also assume that I am in the fandom for all of my all-time favorite books. So these favorites are mostly movies, tv and music. Let’s go!
