Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Normally today was reserved to talk about wintery reads, but honestly? I don’t have any particular wintery reads. In winter I often do like to re-read old favorites, but I didn’t feel like that warranted a post. Now, what I do love to do in winter more than any other season, is binge-watch short and addictive tv series.

You know, the kind of show that doesn’t have too many episodes, but just enough to get you hooked and looking forward to watching a new episode (or two, three) every evening with a cozy blanket and a hot chocolate. Here are some of my favorites!

Ten Fandoms That Have Been Prominent In My Life {Top Ten Tuesday}

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!

Yuri On Ice Book Tag {Tag Thursday}

Yuri On Ice Book Tag

Hi guys, and welcome to this very special Tag Thursday! Why is this one so special, you may ask?

Well, it’s the first time I actually made my own ORGINAL BOOK TAG! Woop, woop! As you may or may not know, I have recently fallen in love (some may call it obsessed) with a little anime called Yuri!!! On Ice. Now, I never would have guessed I would become addicted to an anime about ice figure skaters, but here I am! I saw this show mentioned on Twitter regularly and got intrigued so I checked out the first few episodes and became hooked.

It’s about Katsuki Yuri, a Japanese figure skater who lost badly in his last Grand Prix. He’s suffering from crippling self-doubt and anxiety and is thinking about retiring until a video of him skating the routine of his idol, Victor Nikiforov, goes viral and none other than Victor himself shows up to coach him. This show is just so beautiful and funny and heartwarming. Yuri is such a relatable main character and the evolution of his relationship with Victor (an actual canon LGBTQIA+ relationship) is a joy to watch. I adored the 12 episodes and am keeping my fingers crossed for a second season!

And in the meantime, why not combine two things I love and do a little Yuri On Ice Book Tag?

Here we go!
