Hi, geeks! Spring has sprung! And I’m sneezing 50 times a day despite taking the strongest allergy medicine available over the counter. But in between sneezing, I’ve spent the month of March enjoying many wonderful new things and who better to share my favorite things from March than you lovely geeks? No one! There’s books, shows, podcasts, youtube, etc.! Get a snack, sit down, and let’s talk about some amazing things!
So, it’s no surprise that I love YA books, I read them exclusively. But it may be a surprise that I love a good contemporary YA book. Sometimes I’m not all about murder, space, historical YA, etc. It’s a bit weird for me, but I’m learning to fully embrace the contemporary genre! There’s something amazing about reading a characters journey through life or particular situation. It can be heartfelt, powerful, sad, joyful, or all of those at once (usually that’s when you know you’ve found a good contemporary YA). While I’m learning to indulge in the contemporary YA genre, I thought I would share my top list of my favorite contemporary reads I’ve read so far. Here we go!
Fun fact about me, I love, love, love The Office. I watch The Office about 8-10 times a year. I never get tired of it. I am The Office expert. I know all the quotes, I hum the theme song to myself on multiple occasions, I have a Dunder Mifflin shirt, basically I am The Office Queen! I will take my crown and medal made out of a yogurt lid now (if you get that Office reference, then you’re going to really enjoy the rest of this article). I just love this show so very much. I watched it for the first time in my late high school years/early college years and I caught up enough to watch the last ever season when it premiered and I had to wait week after week to see what would happen next and wonder how it would end until that very last episode when I was a human pile of tears. It’s safe to say The Office is without a doubt, by favorite show in the history of forever. Let’s start this list!
Love is in the air! That means it’s time to talk about my favorite fandom ships. This list is comprised mostly of ships that are canon and maybe one or two that I just want or wish would happen really, really bad. Some of these ships are classic and so full of love that I still ugly cry when I watch their episodes when they fall in love and ugly cry even more when they get in fights. Ugh, it’s making me emotional just thinking about it. Let’s start with the list* before my eyes spring a leak.
*In no particular order
Also, this list may contain spoilers if you haven’t read/watched the books, shows, or movies these ships are from. Read at your own risk.
