I work at a bookstore, so it's pretty difficult to pick favorites,
but I love Stephen King, The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, the
Divergent series, John Green, and so many more. I'm the Children's
and Teen department head at my store, so lately I've been reading a
lot of Young Adult fiction to give good recommendations. There's a
lot of good stuff out there...
I like a lot of movies, in varying genres. Basically I watch just
about everything except scary movies - and even then I'll sit
through it, I'll just hide behind a pillow the whole time.
I love Doctor Who, Firefly (even though it was cancelled), How I
Met Your Mother, Community, New Girl, Sherlock, Gilmore Girls,
Psych, Castle, LOST, and...many other things.
I'm a quasi-hipster kid. I like random obscure things, but I also
like some mainstream stuff and I'm genuinely happy for the bands I
like when they become popular. I pretty much listen to anything
except Country, Rap, and Hip Hop. And yes, that does include
classical and opera. But if I had to choose some favorites, they'd
be The Decemberists, The Airborne Toxic Event, Lindsey Stirling,
REM, Arcade Fire, Floof and the Time Bandits, DeVotchKa, Tally
Hall, Neutral Milk Hotel, Fun., Queen, The Beatles, Temper Trap,
Passion Pit, Of Monsters and Men, and...many many more.
FOOD! I love food! I love cooking food and eating food...I just
don't like paying for the ingredients to cook the delicious food
that I make. I'm a bit scared of trying new foods, though, so I
don't really explore "exotic" cuisines much.
