Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful book blog The Broke and the Bookish, and is a chance for bloggers to get insanely excited about books!
I was a massive fangirl at school. I watched everything, I’d go on tumblr and fangirl about my favourite shows/books/films, and fandoms were a popular topic of conversation at school.
Then I got to university and suddenly had no time to do anything, so I watch far less stuff nowadays. Which I’m actually really happy about, because it means I can concentrate on my favourites! Speaking of favourites, I’m going to share my favourite fandoms with you today for top ten tuesday, and I’d love to hear what your favourites are!
So what’s my favourite tv show ever? It has to be Merlin. I’ve loved this show ever since it first aired, and I have yet to stop enjoying it. I’m in the middle of rewatching it for the millionth time (although I haven’t managed to rewatch those final two episodes yet because the pain just isn’t worth it).
Of course the second spot on the list had to go to Harry Potter – both the books and the films. Honestly, I’m struggling to remember a time when I haven’t loved this series (seeing as it dominated my whole childhood.) It’s always going to be the series that I go back to time and time again.
The Chronicles of Narnia
Again, I grew up reading the books, I watched the BBC adaptation (if you haven’t seen it, go look for clips on youtube), and then the films. This series definitely has a special place in my heart.
Once Upon a Time
So this fandom is a little more recent, and there was no way that I wasn’t going to fall in love with it. I mean, fairytale retellings set in our world? The perfect show. And can I just say how much I love Emma and Hook together? And also how much the storylines at the moment are killing me?
This show is too good. I forget how much I love it until a new series starts and then it’s all I can’t talk about for the next couple of months. And having now read some of the books, it never ceases to amaze me how faithful an adaptation Poldark is.
I totally may have started rewatching this BBC series again too, but how could I resist? It’s such a fun series with amazing characters, and the friendships between the musketeers are so lovely.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians
To be honest, I’m a fan of any book by Rick Riordan, but PJO is my particular favourite. Well, alongside The Heroes of Olympus. They’re so much fun, and Percabeth are one of my absolute favourite bookish couples.
Every so often I come across people who have yet to hear of Hamilton, and introducing them to one of my new favourite musicals is the best thing! The songs and the story are amazing, and I can’t wait to go see it next March! (Even though it’s still almost a year of waiting).
I don’t listen to a huge amount of music (if I do, it’s usually musicals or soundtracks), but I will happily make an exception for these guys. Sure, they do mostly sing musicals so I’m not branching out that much, but they’re sooo good so I recommend them to all of you. Even if you don’t like musicals, go check them out anyway!
I may not have been the biggest fan of the past couple of series’, but I still love going back and rewatching older Doctor Who episodes (along with its spin-offs). The tenth doctor will always be my favourite doctor (and Martha my favourite companion), but I’m very excited about seeing the new companion when the next series starts.
