2021 has been a year of slow progress for me. I’m finally pursuing a B.A. in earnest, and in turn beginning to make the transition from writing for fun to maybe making a career of it.
As always, this list is mostly what I’ve watched this year that I have something (positive) to say about, and not necessarily the “best” nor “of the year”, listed in alphabetical order.
Another year has gone by, and at least you and I, dear reader, have made it out the other side. I won’t say that this odd year in entertainment somehow made it worth it, because it didn’t. It did, however, make things occasionally more bearable, and that’s worth something. Read more
As predicted, I encountered many wonderful new (and not so new) stories this year. I could not have predicted these would be on my list (mostly), and for the first time I’m going to include a sizable list of honorable mentions (because it’s my list and I can do as I please)! Read more
This year was pretty low key for me in terms of highly anticipated releases, but on the plus side, I finally got around to some great stories that I missed out on in the past few years!

This franchise holds a special place in my heart. While it wasn’t my first fandom (that honor belongs to Narnia), it was the first multimedia franchise I was really engaged in, and I was once deeply entrenched in it. Upon (finally) procuring my copy of The Last Jedi, I felt compelled to rank my favorite Star Wars films, so I decided to revisit them (I hadn’t seen some of them for a very long time) and write my thoughts in a list format.

Since I’m not starting a new series this year, I figured I’d celebrate the new year with a list! This is not a “best of 2017” list – it’s just a list of some stories I’ve encountered this year (mostly from 2016-17, but not all) that made an impression on me which I believe merit some more attention.
