Top 10 Fandom Ships

By: Taylor

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.

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.

Thank goodness 2018 is over! I’m ready to accept all the greatness that 2019 has to offer and part of that greatness is reading as many books as possible! But before I can do that, I want look back on all the wonderful books I read in 2018. I was able to read 43 books in 2018, so this list is the top of the class. Not all of these books were published in 2018, but they came into my life in 2018. These books were the ones that made me laugh, cry, swoon, understand myself and others more, made me think, hope, and want to fight for a better world. These books stayed with me long after I finished reading them and those are the best kinds of books. Without further ado, here is my list of the top 10 YA books I read in 2018*.

Top 10 Y’allFest Haul

By: Taylor

I just got back from Y’allFest! Woo! It was amazing as always. Lots of books, lots of fellow book nerds, and lots of authors! If you haven’t heard of Y’allFest, it’s a  young adult book festival in Charleston, SC. There are book signings, author panels, ARC (advanced reading copy) giveaways, and so much more! It’s an amazing event and this is my 3rd year going and it just gets better and better each year. I love going to get tons of books and attend a few panels, but mostly I like going to experience the amazingness of the YA book community. There’s so many people there and while you wait in line for an ARC or for a panel or signing, you strike up conversations about books and life and you end up with a new friend and a few more book recommendations. It’s honestly just so wonderful. I highly, highly recommend this festival. On another hand, since I just got back, I decided to share my Y’allFest haul with you guys! So here’s a list of the top 10 ARC’s* I got from Y’allFest!
