Top 5 Tuesday

Top 5 Tuesday: Fantasy eh, Bookish Facts

As we have already had a similar Top 5 Fantasy in which I listed my top 5 favourite YA & adult fantasy, I thought well, I’m going to talk about my Top 5 favourite Science Fiction reads and then, realised that we’d already covered that HERE and HERE.

I’ve also done my Top 5 Authors, done my Top 10 reads of all time, I’ve told you about my favourite Top 5 books covers and characters, plus what my favourite genres are. I think I’ve even shared my Top 5 Fav SF TV shows. So what else is there left to discover about my reading and viewing habits—well now, that would be telling wouldn’t it!

I could tell you about my serious popcorn addiction. No, I’m not kidding. I think I would live at the cinema just to eat popcorn while watching the screen flicker, doesn’t matter what movie is showing.

Or that I lived in a bed-sit at one time where a lot of my furniture was stacked books. Thankfully, I had a ‘real’ bed, otherwise I might never have gotten any sleep. You know, reading.

I could also mention I had (past tense) a serious comic addiction. It was so bad I nearly rented a 2 bedroom apartment just so I could ‘house’ my collection. Then I got offered a job in New York and moved half way across the planet and the collection was sold. I can still hear myself sobbing in the past!

Other useless bookish facts about me are, I still have my original, much-thumbed copy, of Frank Herbert’s DUNE!

See, you really wanted to know all that, right?


  1. Oh, I’ve got the same popcorn/movie addiction!!!

    Your pain in selling the comic collection resonated so strongly with me! I’m a collector (not of comic books) and the idea of selling any of my stuff…noooooo😬

      Oh, look at that, we’re kindred spirits, Jonetta. We can start a club. The popcorn chomping collectors club. 😉

  2. Bwahahaha YOU are going rogue this week Alexandra while I’ve been the very good girl! It’s like we swapped personalities LOL

    • Alexandra says

      Yep! Thought I’d change it up a wee bit this week, Sophie! Ha! Ha!

  3. Me and my family have a similar popcorn addiction. There’s always at least 4 boxes of the microwave stuff in the cupboard, and a bag of theatre popcorn on the counter. Even the dog goes crazy for it!

    • Alexandra says

      Oh, you too, Shanah? I sometimes wonder if there’s something hidden they put on popcorn that gets us addicted? More sales, right! lol!
