Top 5 Wednesday: August 8, 2018

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by GingerReadsLainey and managed by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes on Goodreads. Each week features a new prompt in which you are suppose to talk about the top 5 books that you relate to the prompt. This week the topic is: Favorites You’d Like to Revisit— What favorite books would you like to re-read? These don’t just need to be books, they can also be TV, movies, video games, etc.

So, without further adieu, I present my contribution to this week’s top five conversation.

4f60e3d4244cecaf3598485d91a0b841Charmed television series

Network: The WB

No. of seasons: 8 (1998-2006)

One of my favourite childhood television series, Charmed has been on my mind a lot lately, given that the CW has decided to reboot the series rather than making a revival or sequel. As I won’t be watching the new series when it is released on October 14, because lets be honest it doesn’t look that great, I think the only thing left for me to do is to whip out my DVDs and devour a series that has left a lasting impression.

Network: The WB (2000-06), The CW (2006-07)

No. of seasons: 8 (2000-2007, 2016)

Another of my favourite childhood series, Gilmore Girls is a show that I watch, in its entirety, every single year. As we are starting to get to the cooler months, you can bet that Carol King’s ‘Where You Lead’ will be blaring out of my television speakers in no time at all.

Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures

No. of movies: 8 (2001-2011)

It has been a hot minute since I have rewatched this magical series. So long in fact that I think the last time I visited the wizarding world was when I went to the opening night showing of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in 2016. Thankfully, my fiancé has agreed to watch them with me in the very near future, so my return to Hogwarts should not be too far away.

Publisher: Square Enix, Microsoft Studios (November 10, 2015)

With Shadow of the Tomb Raider set for release on September 14, 2018, I am choosing to prepare myself for, at least this Laura Croft’s, the curtain call by playing the previous installment of the series. And hey, I never played it on Xbox One so easy achievements for me!



15749186To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before book series by Jenny Han

Publisher: Penerbit Spring (April 15, 2014)

Print Length: 355 pages

Quite possibly one of the only contemporary authors I like to read works by, Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is becoming a Netflix film on August 17, 2018. I want to prepare for it by reading the first novel, and given I never actually finished the series it seems like devouring the trilogy is also in order.

And those are my top five favorites I’d like to revisit. Do you have anything that could fill this T5W? Leave it as a comment below and let’s chat about it.

    I need to rewatch Charmed. I had a phase a few years ago where it would be the only thing I’d watch and it helped me through a lot when I was living in France. It’s just a classic 90s and 2000s show that was so empowering in a lot of ways. Like you, I’m not going to watch the reboot either. It doesn’t feel right to me and I can’t understand why they’re calling it a “feminist reboot” when Charmed was already pretty feminist in the first place. Crazy!


    1. Thepbkpilgrim

      That’s awesome that you got to live in France! Its a well-rounded show that hits on a lot of issues that young women face, well, minus the whole magical powers/demons thing. I don’t understand that wording either, just say you’re trying to be more inclusive and offer more diversity rather than say its ‘feminist.’
