Goodbye 2017 and Hello 2018

As the new year has just started, I thought it would be nice to share some of my favourite things of 2017 and some of the things I’m looking forward to in the new year. Hello 2018!

My favourite things of 2017

Movies

Horror made a great comeback this year, so my favourite movie of the year is Get Out. The movie I had the most fun with was by far hands down Thor: Ragnorak. Special mentions for Kong: Skull Island and Shin Godzilla! Giant monsters will always rule for me!

Books/Comic Books

Paper Girls was the stand out series for me of this year, I’m looking forward how the plot unfolds. 2017 was also the year I rediscovered one of fantasy’s greatest heroes: Conan the Cimmerian. Reading his short stories and the comic book adaptations, made me appreciate this iconic character. Worth a read if you want to know where the sowrd and sorcery genre stems from. If I mention Conan, I also have to mention Red Sonja his female counterpart. Xena who? Red Sonja is the OG kickass lady.

I hardly read books anymore, but I like reading biographies and autobiographies. So Suck Less by Willam Belli is my favourite book. Willam is a drag queen and Suck Less is her guide to well Suck Less. Honest, open and hilarious. Please check out her YouTube account as well.

Series

Steven Universe is my favourite serie of the year, I know i’m a but behind on the times. But we watched the first four seasons together and we fell in love. Some of the themes are inclusiveness, gender identity, love and figuring out who you are. For all ages, gorgeous pastel coloured and it looks and feels like a dream.

Other series I loved watching RuPaul’s dragrace season 9, The Punisher and Masterchef Australia!

Special mentions

These are some other things I loved. Gone Home is my favourite video game of all time, but Overwatch pretty much was my to go game this year. I am playing Dungeons and Dragons, both as The Dungeon Master and as a player. I highly recommend this as well, nothing is more fun than to play with a group of friends in a world where there are infinite possibilities( as long as the Dungeon Master did his or her work ;)).

Plus most of all, writing for this website and meeting my fellow writers Nora and Ingrid!

Things I am looking forward to in 2018

In no particular order here are some movies/series/whatever I am looking forward to.

Movies

These are the movies I want to see the most next year: Pacific Rim: Uprising, The New Mutans, Deadpool 2, Cloverfield 2017, Black Panther and Ant-man and Wasp.

Series

Finally seeing the complete season 5 of Steven Universe, Jessica Jones season 2, Rupaul’s Drag Race Allstars 3 and season 10, Judge Dredd: Mega City One and the New Warriors.

Thanks for reading, a Happy New Year from me and onwards to 2018!
