One of my recommended blog posts on this site, for the past little while, has been this post, which rounds up a bunch of old posts about my favorites for books, movies, etc. At this point, I'm realizing that recommended post is outdated, and so I'm creating a new one, with updates on my (new) favorite things and additional favorites posts linked in. So here you go!

Updates on the Old "My Favorites" Posts
So now to update the old "My Favorites" posts.
The first four, the books section, has remained about the same, with an ever-growing and too-long-to-go-over list of additions. In the classics, I would like to also put an extra good word in for The Great Gatsby, Wuthering Heights, Hamlet, Frankenstein, and Trifles. I know I mentioned some of these in that post, but I felt like they needed an even stronger recommendation to fit with my growing love for them.
My favorite quotes have all remained about the same, again, with a growing list. I keep track of favorite quotes on my Goodreads, and I also include a Quote of the Week in my weekly blog e-mails for those subscribed!
My favorite music is always expanding and sometimes changing, but I feel that with my occasional music related posts, you guys get the idea well enough that I don't need to update anything here.
My favorite movies are just about the same as the last post. The one thing that's really changed, though you guys are mostly aware of this, are my favorite TV shows.
In the original post, I was still pretty uncomfortable about transitioning out of kid TV into adult TV. I listed a few different shows I liked, but now, most those shows aren't even running anymore, and I no longer am interested in them the same way.
You guys know what I'm into now: in the summer 2013, I officially became a BBC fangirl! My new favorite shows are as follows: Doctor Who, a very old, very famously brilliant British sci-fi show that is humorous, complex, and tragic all at once. Sherlock, a brilliant British modern adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes series, featuring Hottie McHottie, aka Benesmurf Cucumber. I recently also got into Supernatural, which is an American horror-ish show about two brothers fighting (guess what?) the supernatural. Supernatural is brilliantly written and I love the two main characters and the way they portray that familial relationship, but I do wish it would tone down the sexual content. Hashtag sigh. I'm still also a big Once Upon a Time fan, and I've finally caught up on the most recent seasons! Recently, I've been watching Psych with my brother--it's the American comedic version of Sherlock, without the literary background, basically.
There you have it, an updated "My Favorites" recap post for anyone interested in knowing what's up in my brain! Thanks for reading! There won't be much of a post next time because I'll be at Ch1Con, which I hope to see you at! If you haven't registered yet, we do accept walk-ups.
