Hello Internet! My heart was stolen by middle grade fantasy books, sci-fi, cartoons, and podcasts (in that order), and I’m here to write about it.
I’m quite excited because while I’ve had many conversations with friends about our mutual book/TV show/movie/podcast loves, I haven’t spent a lot of time writing my thoughts down. I’ve realized perhaps it’s time I toss some of my fannish opinions out there into some small corner of the Internet and see what happens!
A quick bit about me: I’m Emily (she/her), a college student slash aspiring writer. A few fun facts: I love to sing, my favorite food is pasta, and I’m learning to crochet.
Here’s a run down of media I already love (also found on the about page):
Books: Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and the Olympians/Heroes of Olympus, The Kane Chronicles, Leagues and Legends, Septimus Heap
TV Shows: Doctor Who, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, Steven Universe, Merlin, Once Upon a Time
Movies: Star Wars
Podcasts: The Adventure Zone, Wolf 359, The Strange Case of Starship Iris
And I’m interested in trying new stories and talking about those too. (Right now I’ve got my eye on She-Ra and Star Trek…in between poking around Classic Who.)
I’m still figuring out what types of posts I want to write, but it’ll likely be a mix of in-depth meta-style posts about media I already enjoy and reviews/impressions of things new to me. And while I’m going for a pretty positive, welcoming vibe for the blog, that’s not to say I don’t have plenty of criticism of the things I love. I’m here to dig into the bits of stories that I’ll hold near and dear to my heart and also the bits that make me want to angrily fling a pillow across the room.
I can’t wait to get started on this journey and I hope you, dear reader, will join me for the ride.
