Let’s talk bookish is a weekly meme, created and hosted by Rukky @Eternity Books, here different topics will be discussed.
This week’s topic is ‘the hype train’, but I honestly don’t really know what to discuss about it.. But I missed last week’s post, for which the topic was ‘bookish fandoms’, so I thought I would go with that one 🙂
To be honest, I’m not that big in any bookish fandom, as in I don’t collect things ‘belonging’ to a certain fandom. I do own some Funko pops, bookish candles and some small other things. Those candles and other things all come from fairyloot boxes! I really appreciate them, but I won’t really go out of my way to buy them..
I do really appreciate all these companies making these candles, bookmarks, art prints and many more things that I can’t think of right now haha!
The one bookish fandom that I definitely am part of is Harry Potter! I collect copies of Harry Potter and the philosophers stone in languages from countries that I visit! Most of my funko pops that I own are also from Harry Potter (3). Besides I’m buying all the illustrated editions, and I definitely own quidditch through the ages and Fantastic beasts and where to find them!
I know ‘belonging’ to a bookish fandom doesn’t mean you need to own stuff from that fandom! I just feel like it proofs my love for Harry Potter in this case haah!
I also just love how creative creators get when they are making something for a fandom!
When of the things Rukky mentioned in her topic announcement is ‘do you think fans can ruin the experience of reading it’. Which I think is difficult to answer, because in one way, yes because it could give you very high expectations for a book, which then could make you disappointed in a book if those expectations are not met. But I also just really love seeing others peoples love for a fandom, even when I’m not part of it!
Some fandom I consider myself a part of:
- Harry Potter
- A darker shade of magic
- Name of the wind
- The final empire
I’m not really sure if this was the point of this discussion (is this really a discussion?) but this is what I have to say about bookish fandoms haha!
