Today's Top 5 is Top 5 Fandoms. What is a fandom? A fandom is the state or condition of being a fan of someone or something. Or the fans of a particular person, team, fictional series, etc., regarded collectively as a community or subculture. So essentially these are the top 5 things I fangirl over.
Yeah, yeah. If you aren't a fan of Twilight then you've most likely made fun of those who are fans of Twilight. I am not the biggest fan of the movies - at least the first two but I am a huge fan of the books. I have read and reread the books. These books are the first books I fell in love with, the first books I stood in line for at midnight and the first books that truly let me just escape from the world I was in. The best part? They take place in our world - a place that I can actually visit. Which I have and thoroughly enjoyed. I'm grateful for this series. It came at a time I needed it and it made me fall in love with YA books.
I was late to the Harry Potter fandom. I had tried to read the books when they first came out but I just couldn't get past the first book, no matter how hard I tried. Once the movies came out I fell in love with them. A few years ago I started reading the books and slowly but surely I'm making my way through them. I think having a visual and having heard someone pronounce the words has helped me a lot. I definitely think that is what was holding me back.
I just discovered this show 2ish years ago and oh my goodness. It is amazing! It's got everything and I love it. I could gush for days but I won't. If you've watched it I'm sure you love it just as much as me. I'm currently beginning season 11 and I am SO excited!
Yeah - I say movies because I haven't followed the comics. I know nothing of the story lines except for what the movies tell me. I love all things that go KA-BOOM so obviously these are some of my favorite movies. I can watch them over and over and never get bored. I can't explain why I love them so much, just that I do.
I love the music, the princesses that everyone says are weak but are really strong, the art, the sidekicks and did I mention the music? I have so many favorite Disney movies but I think my top three are Beauty and the Beast, Moana, and Tangled. Ugh, let's go with top four because I love The Little Mermaid too! I am that girl who gets an autograph book every time I go to Disney, I cry during the shows that are put on, I geek out over seeing princesses, and I HAVE to see Pluto (my favorite character)! We went to Disney World for out honeymoon - I mean really... need I say more?
