2017 Favorites

2017 flew by so fast! I can't believe it's already January! My birthday is in 14 days! I'm so excited!

I wanted to share some of my favorites of 2017. My interests haven't change much. I've always been attracted to sci-fi, superheroes and drama.

Movie Favorites

Based on the negative things going on in the world, I was afraid we were all going to be nuked and I wasn't going to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  It's definitely my favorite movie of the year. So many people weren't impressed with it-saying it's too different from the whole series but that's what I loved about it. Plus, there's Reylo, my OTP. I don't use that term loosely. Since I've seen The Force Awakens they've been all I can think about. Reylo is life! I hope no one steals my phone cause I have dedicated folders for Adam Driver, Reylo and Star Wars on there with an embarrassing number of images. 

I'd recommend you see all of those movies on my list but if you don't have the time to watch them all I suggest you watch Split, Baby Driver and It. I have a soft spot for Valerian as well-so underrated. 

TV Favorites

TV shows are getting better and better as the time goes by. This year I've been really into these shows. Dark is a German production and I would recommend it to Stranger Things fans. you can't go wrong with a Netflix production, in my opinion. Hulu has been stepping up and released Runaways and the award-winning The Handmaid's Tale. This wouldn't be a Zemira list without a CW show. This time it's Riverdale. As an avid Archie comics lover I am so happy this show exists. 

Book Favorites

2017 has been a year I discovered Alice Oseman. I have to say she has quickly become one of those authors who's work I will read. I have to give her props for writing about LGBT+ population, especially about my fellow asexuals. We are underrepresented in all media. While we're talking about asexuals, I have to mention Ormsbee's Tash Hearts Tolstoy. This book should not be missed! Also, check out Moxie if you are looking for girl power. 

Psychopaths, saints, space battles with and without giant robots, one wilderness life camp, soft winter girlfriends, cults, female assassins and virtual worlds also landed among my favorites. I am drawn to dark things by default. I can't help it.
