It feels like it’s been a while since I did a Top 5 Wednesday.
In case you didn’t know, Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey (Youtube) and you can find the future (and past) topics on the Goodreads page.
Today, the topic is favourite fandoms.
How can I resist? I’m a huge fangirl… Sometimes, all you really need is to be able to talk to someone who is completely obsessed by the same things you love..
I understood that reference..
I love Marvel. I love people with superpowers and gods and the like. The comics aren’t very popular here, although that’s starting to change now. Some of the newer comics have been translated. Still, I don’t read a lot of comics.. so when I say Marvel, I mean the movies and tv shows. I especially love The Avengers, Thor and Captain America and of course the great tv shows Agent Carter and Jessica Jones. I’m looking forward to Civil War and Doctor Strange!
Aaaah, Sherlock. There aren’t a lot of tv shows that I’ve recommended as much as Sherlock. I adore the intricacy of the story lines and the chemistry between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. It’s such a wonderful, wonderful show. Although, I still wasn’t completely convinced by the Christmas episode.
I found out about Doctor Who when David Tennant left and Matt Smith took his place. Suddenly there was this cute, quirky guy in a crashing spaceship screaming ‘Geronimo’ and I was sold. Since then, I’ve watched every episode from 9 till 12 and although Peter Capaldi wasn’t exactly my favourite at first, I’ve grown to like him since seeing him in the Christmas special. River and Twelve had such great chemistry!
BUT Eleven will always be my one, true doctor. I adored him!!
Tom Hiddleston, the gift that keeps on giving. Thor, Warhorse, Crimson Peak, Only Lovers Left Alive, The Hollow Crown… What do they have in common? A great performance by Mr Hiddleston. In 2016, you’ll find him in the BBC’s mini series The Night Manager and on the big screen in High-Rise. I’m always in awe when I see him act. He’s one of the greatest actors of this time. I also want him to be the next James Bond… (fingers crossed)
I am, and will always be, a fan of Harry Potter. These books have brought me so much joy. They made me into the person I am today (not even joking). If it wasn’t for these books, I doubt that I would love reading as much as I do. I think people who diss on Harry Potter, don’t even know what the books are about. Between the lines, you learn about life, friendship, loss and so much more. I will forever stand up for this story. I will always be a Potterhead!
I have started rereading the books now and want to read all seven by the end of the year.
What fandoms are you a part of?
(Also, I’m due to have my baby in two weeks time so if you don’t hear from me in a while, that’s where I’ve gone.. I’ll try to keep the posts coming but I can’t promise anything… wish me luck!!)
