I have been wanting to start doing Top 5 Wednesday for a while, so I thought 2016 would be a good time to start! If you didn’t already know Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group created by GingerReadsLainey (on YouTube).
This weeks topic is your top 5 favorite fandoms.
No explanation really needed. But I’m giving one anyways because I’m a major over-achiever. 😉
When I was in 5th grade, I read the magical series of Harry Potter. And you can ask my parents, I was OBSESSED. I would not stop talking about the series/characters, to the point where my parents almost learned the story without reading/watching it 😄 (and not voluntarily).
Later, I enlarged my obsession by creating a fan Instagram. I made edits, and I loved it. I even got 15,000 followers! (I’m still wicked proud hahaha). AND THEN SOME BITCH HACKED ME. I don’t really care anymore though. If you’re curious, the account is @magicalwizards. It’s still there. 😄
So all in all, Harry Potter is probably my number one obsession. I love it.
2. Star Wars
I was pretty late to the whole Star Wars train, and didn’t hop aboard till a few years ago. But I love it nonetheless.
Also can we talk about how hot the actor who plays Anakin in The Revenge of the Sith (my favorite movie of the series) is?!
3. The Hunger Games
After Star Wars and HP I don’t have many ‘favorite fandoms’ so #3 was hard to choose.
The Hunger Games trilogy hasn’t even earned it’s way onto my ‘favorites’ shelf on GR’s. But I really love the fandom. I think the movies are brilliant (for the most part) and the novels are really good too. The books definitely do have a lot of flaws, in my opinion, but it’s still a series that’s stayed with me for a long time.
4. Pretty Little Liars
I originally loved the PLL TV series, (I haven’t read the books lol), but I feel now they’re dragging on the show waaaaaaaay too long. I’ll still watch it though, because I’m a pretty devoted fan. 😄
I owe Veronica Roth my gratitude for making me a reader. The Divergent series is really what got me into reading and loving books.
Although, I have to say, the movies are pretty awful. I can’t believe they casted Shailene, (she has about as much personality as a rock). Theo’s great though (and really hot too <3).
Hope you enjoyed this post. Have an awesome day!
