April 25: Favorite Fandom Items

 Whether it’s something you own or something you are lusting after, what are some of your favorite fandom items/merch/memorabilia? Your picks don’t all have to be from the same fandom!

Bookmarks

I have a LOTR and a Six of Crows bookmark and I LOVE THEM. I got them free, but there’s nothing better than seeing quotes from my favourite books when I’m reading something new. It re-affirms my love of reading.

Clothes / T-shirts

I adore, ADORE, clothes and t-shirts with fandoms. I want an Ursula one, a Captain America one, I already have a Hulk one I designed myself, Placebo, MCR, Muse, Tornado Chasers, Arwen, Smeagol, Harry Potter, lots of Broadway shows, but gooodddddd I need more.

Scarves

I received a LOTR scarf for a secret santa last year and I ADORE it. I love my scarves, it just seems to add to my look, so I adore prints that are from my favourite media.

Anything Candle!

I ADORE candles in the first place but there’s nothing as satisfying as sniffing candles based on the Dregs, or Slytherin House, or places in the books… it’s a good job they’re a little bit expensive or else I would spend everything I had on them.

Bags

I’ve had a slight obsession with bags since I was little and had to choose satchels for school, but I regret that I haven’t had ANY fandom bags. It’s my ambition to own a disney villains one and a LOTR one, but there’s also the supernatural one with pentagrams on it, and I need more money.

HONORABLE MENTION:

Funko Pops, Phone cases, Prints, Laptop covers

Top 5 Wednesday – Auto-Buy Scifi and Fantasy Authors

Booktube SFF Awards Babble Crossover Topic! — This month’s crossover topic is your auto-buy authors that write SFF.

I’m actually quite finicky when it comes to absolutely adoring authors enough to buy them automatically – mainly because of money – BUT there are a few authors I’m definitely going to buy immediately regardless of monetary status, and some that I will buy fairly soon after publication.

LEIGH BARDUGO

QUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN.

I want her books now. King of Scars duology (? I think?), Ninth House! THEY CAN’T COME QUICK ENOUGH.

I devoured Six of Crows, she’s a wonderful person, and yes. I adore her. I met her when she did her UK tour with Rainbow Rowell and I am officially her loyal subject.

Top 5 Wednesday – Favorite Jokesters

— In honor of April Fools (a bit late but hey, I don’t control when Wednesdays fall), talk about your favorite jokesters, pranksters, and funny characters. 

I love me some funny characters. While I know there’s bound to be more focus on pranksters and jokers on others’ lists, I haven’t really read many of those that spring immediately to mind. So I’m going with the ones who never fail to make me titter or smile with their humour.

Top 5 Wednesday! – Hidden Gems in Your Favorite Genre

  • What are some of your favorite books in your favorite genre that don’t get a lot of hype?

-Goodreads Top 5 Wednesday group is run by Sam of Thoughts of Tomes, and can be found here!

My favourite genre is definitely fantasy. I don’t care what subgenre, it’s all good to me. It’s quite hard to see what’s really ‘hidden’ though because most of my favourites are actually well known HOWEVER I have found some not many people talk about nowadays:

I read this in 2017 I believe? It was the first book I read of the year. I know it came out in 2012 so I might have missed the hype train but I still love it. Penryn is a likeable heroine without all the dramatics, and it’s a really good journey. Angels in a different light, good prose, she’s capable. I gave this 5*.
