Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted on The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s theme is a fandom freebie. You can do whatever you want within the fandom realm, so I’m choosing to just list the bookish fandoms I’ve been a part of over the course of my life, for one reason or another. I’ve never really bothered with television shows or games or anything like that, so the book fandoms are pretty much all I’ve got. You can see why I was a nerd in school (and proud of it, honestly).
Harry Potter fandom
This is the one fandom I’ve actually stuck with for more than a short period of my life. I was part of the Harry Potter fandom before the internet was a thing and I knew there were other people who liked the same things I did. And still kicking around in it until this day.
I’m not sure that this one actually counts, but in and around ’99-’03, these were the coolest books you could be reading in my school. We were all obsessed about who was reading which book and how many we each had read. It was a thing.
This is probably one of the more embarrassing fandoms I belong to, but I was 12/13 at the time, and I didn’t know better. But it was fun for the year or so it lasted. I don’t even think I stuck with it until New Moon came out, though I have read all four books.
Meg Cabot fandom
Does this one count? I’m going with it, because I spent a lot of time on the Meg Cabot Book Club forums back in the day.
The Hunger Games fandom
This was a very brief period during university when we were all addicted to these books and movies. Maybe it was just because we needed something to think about other than schoolwork, but it was fun while it lasted.
So that’s it! It’s a rather short list, because I don’t find too much that I want to get super into. What fandoms are you a part of? Let me know in the comments below!
