Bookish (5)

HP5: Order of the Phoenix. I read at age 15 and at first hated emo Harry. But later related to his slice-of-life hardships, and now it’s my favorite to start a HP binge on. Plus, Prof. Umbridge is deliciously evil.

Twist/surprise exposition.
When characters are monologuing plans to audiences in books/movies, they usually go wrong. When they plan off-screen, they usually go right and are revealed later as a twist. Even better when the former is paired with the latter as a red herring. Ocean’s 11, for example.

Mystery / Thriller.
Surprisingly, Harry Potter introduced me to this genre, because they’re, at their core, mystery books with a magic twist!

Hmmm, this is hard to explain because while I’m a fan, I don’t really participate in fandoms – but I like to lurk and watch the revelry from the sidelines. I would say I enjoy unfinished book series fandoms the most because I like reading the speculations in real time.

I’m pretty neutral on a lot of things, but I think most people prefer to read books than listen to audiobooks. I like to keep my eyes and hands busy with other projects and my ears busy with books. It’s a symbiotic relationship.
