Video games and books, what could go wrong!
1) NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) – A classic you want to read.
Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
I’ve never read the Holmes stories but I’ve always loved the different incarnations and reboots of them. My next classic purchase will be The Hound of Baskerville for sure!
2) SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) – A sequel you liked more than the first.
The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
I don’t remember much of when I read the Trilogy but I will always remember the ending of the Two Towers really sticking out in my young mind. It was, to me at the time, a HUGE cliffhanger and I freaked out. I had to know what happened and if everyone was okay. That’s always what I think of when someone says cliffhanger. Tiny Sarah in her pink bedroom staring at the wall just screaming that she needed to go to the library.
3) Nintendo 64 – A book that revolutionized the way you look at the world.
The Wild Magic Quartet by Tamora Pierce
I read these books and the In the Hand of the Goddess quartet when I was in my early teens. I grew up reading epic fantasy like JRR Tolkien, Tad Williams, and Terry Brooks. Finding a series of books that were both approachable and had female main characters? My tiny mind was blown!
4) GameCube – A popular book that didn’t go over well with you.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
First, I really liked my GameCube! So the fact that I have to compare my GameCube to RPO offends me.
Second, I just did not enjoy Ready Player One. Nope. Not a bit. Nope nope. Also please note, I got all the references. I my problem was not with the over abundance of nerdy references.
5) Wii – A new favorite book
The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
This was all shades of glorious. It has a bit of a learning curve but I really loved everything about this. It was such a hopeful fantasy and I love that.
6) Nintendo Power – Favorite Graphic Novel Series or a Series you want to start
Bitch Planet by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro
I am 4 issues into this (there are only four) but I am in love. I actually have a tattoo planned from this! Non-compliant!
7) Super Mario – A character you’d love to squish like a goomba
Rose from Vampire Academy
I have an almost violent love/hate relationship with Rose. I love her world, what she is, what she stands for (most times). But damn it, she aggravates the ever loving shit out of me with her bad decisions.
8) Zelda – A newer fantasy that you would consider a modern classic
The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison (again)
I don’t want to reuse answers but there ya go. I am incapable of not answering this with Goblin Emperor. It’s beautiful and amazing.
9) Samus Aran – Favorite Sci-fi novel or one you want to read
The Martian by Andy Weir
There is The Goblin Emperor in Fantasy and there is The Martian in sci-fi with me. I adore The Martian. I am so pumped about that movie, it looks great.
10) Pokémon – Book editions you want to collect
The Penguin Classics English Library
This isn’t the same book in different versions but a series of classics reprinted beautifully. I adore the cover, the quality, and the price. Lovely, lovely editions. (I get mine from Book Depository for those interested)
11) Donkey Kong – A book with with original characters
The Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson
This is another set of books that words cannot possibly explain my love. I adore these. Kal alone goes through so much in these. I can’t gush enough, I can not.
12) Nintendo Fandom – Favorite Nintendo games or a game you really want.
Fire Emblem Fates
I love Nintendo games and systems. I’m a Fangirl, but right now I’m so close to loosing my shit over this game. I don’t know if I’m going to make it to 2016. Not only can you (FINALLY) court someone of the same sex but the game is all about choices, big game changing choices! GAH!
My god, that was longer than I thought but so much fun! Woot!
