Books: The LOTR books, Harry Potter, the Grimnoir Chronicles, The
Dresden Files. A Song of Ice and Fire. Everything by Brandon
Sanderson. I have a love hate relationship with the Wheel of Time
series. Everything by Neil Gaiman, especially American Gods. Terry
Pratchett is my hero.
I also enjoy historical documents and biographies.
Music: too many to name, in too many genres. Not a day passes
without some Florence+ the Machine and some classic rock. I also
enjoy instrumental pieces when I'm working or need to relax.
Shows: Doctor Who, ADVENTURE TIME!, Archer, Supernatural, Firefly,
Buffy and Angel. Everything else Joss Whedon touches.
