Lately, I've been getting fandoms that I was in way back when. Some are painfully bad, like to the point where I questioned my past self's taste because, no. But there are others that make me smile even if they aren't at the level of brilliance that I remember. My parents have been sighing every time they see me watching all my old shows. But whatever.

I've noticed that a lot of my shows have really long battles (DBZ, anyone?). I want to see if recent shows are like this or if it was just part of the '90s. To do that I would actually have to watch some new shows. Any recommendations?

So in between watching Yu Yu Hakusho, Gundam Wing, Dragonball Z etc. I've been reading a lot of Supernatural fanfic. Which is a bit of a problem considering that I haven't watched the second half of Season Five. It got me thinking about how for some shows/books/films/whatever there's such a plethora of fanworks, and for others there's virtually nothing. Why is that?

Moving on to something else, I haven't forgotten about my book list. I've written mini reviews for the books that I've finished and my current thoughts on the ones that I'm in the process of reading. There are mild spoilers, but nothing big. I don't give away the ending or anything.

Does anyone know if Bleach still worth reading? I haven't read it in a year or so, and I'm getting the itch to start reading again. What about Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, is that still good?

I get to finally catch up on my reading. As a literature major I do read a lot of books during the semester and they're great books, but required reading isn't the same as choosing. During the semester, I had been buying books that were recommended and books that looked interesting. That results in a lot of books. My goal this summer is to read all of the books that I bought.

Book List for Summer '10

1.) Rampant by Diana Peterfreund

2.) Lieutenant Nun by Catalina de Erauso

3.) American Queer: Now and Then by David Shneer and Caryn Aviv

4.) Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

5.) Lady Oracle by Margaret Atwood

6.) East of Eden by John Steinbeck

7.) An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

8.) By the Light of My Father's Smile by Alice Walker

9.) Feed by Mira Grant

10.)Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Barnes

11.) Slam Dunk by Inoue Takehiko (Vols. 1-9)

I think there's more, but my father has hidden them away. If there are any books that you adore and want to rec me, let me know!

I'm going to go back to reading Rampant
