Hello there again, it’s time for another Top 5 Wednesday post!
And this week, it’s all about the favourites you’d like to revisit, be that books, TV, film, etc. So, let’s get right into it!
- A Darker Shade Of Magic, V. E. Schwab. Honestly, was anyone surprised by that answer? I read the trilogy last year in a frenzy, desperate to read every word on the page, to read what happened next. At the end of the year, there’s going to be a spin-off comic being released, The Steel Prince, which focuses on Rhy and Kel’s father. And then, next year, Schwab is releasing The Threads Of Power, a spin-off series set in New York in Kel’s world, promising that there will be appearances from Kel, Lila, Rhy, and Alucard. I obviously have to reread the original series, to remember everything that happened… not just because I love it so much, not at all… I just need to remember, before I see the world expanded…
- Sherlock. Somehow, I’ve managed to not watch my favourite show since December last year, where I watched their Christmas special The Abominable Bride. Since then, I haven’t watched a single episode, further than the clue videos for the escape room (which I’ve booked to go to next year) and the 7 minute short, set pre-season 3, Many Happy Returns. I’m desperate to rewatch the show, at least an episode. I’ve been watching Benedict and Martin in the MCU so much recently, I desperately need to rewatch them in the show I first saw them in. Maybe The Sign Of Three, seeing as its the classic wedding episode, and my cousin is getting married next week…
- Doctor Who. Specifically, 10’s era. It’s not exactly shocking that I’m a massive fan of the 10th Doctor, I can’t shut up about him when I get the chance to talk about him and Doctor Who. And with the show coming back soon, with his Broadchurch co-star, Jodie Whittaker, taking the helm as The Doctor, I feel like it’s time to rewatch 10’s era. It’s been years since I properly watched his seasons, having been emotionally scarred by his regeneration, but maybe now is the time to bite the bullet. And just, maybe, avoid the last four episodes of his era, and skip to the 50th-anniversary episode, and his surprise appearance at The Muppets London show recently.
- The Creakers, Tom Fletcher. I’ve only read this middle-grade novel once, and I absolutely loved it. It was a fantastic story, and it caused one of the best moments of my entire life: And yes, I’m still not over it, don’t think I ever will be either. But, I digress, I loved this book, it was inventive, kinda gross, and had several references in it I loved. But, to top it off, Tom’s now written songs for the book, like he did with The Christmasaurus. I’m probably going to wait until after the release of the musical book first, but this is definitely near the top of my ‘reread’ list.
- Good Omens, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I was planning on reading this again next January, but I may have to reread it sooner than then, I’m just getting far too excited for the TV adaption to come out! I’ve been excited for it since the words ‘David Tennant is playing Crowley’ was said, and now, post SDCC, having seen the behind the scenes video, it’s safe to say that I’m bouncing off the walls in excitement for this! I have no idea when I’m going to get round to reading this book again, but it’s at the top of my list, first priority when I get the time to reread a book unscheduled.
Of course, there are so many others I could mention – The Christmasaurus, The Hogfather, Skulduggery Pleasant – but there’s so obvious, and the first two are always on my list for Christmas reading. But the ones I mentioned are the ones I really want to revisit, but keep on being shoved to the back of the list, thanks to my growing list of unread books/TV shows/films.
What are you guys wanting to revisit? Are you excited for any book spin-off series’? Tell me down below!
