I enjoy reading teen fiction, particularly fantasy (think dragons and wizards), romance, and contemporary fiction. Some favorite authors include Becky Albertalli, Emery Lord, Julie Murphy, Tamora Pierce, J.K. Rowling, Marie Rutkoski, and Jennifer E. Smith. I also read adult and junior fiction. For a book to capture me, I need strong characters or inventive world-building. Although I prefer fiction, I read non-fiction, memoirs, graphic novels, and anything having to do with Broadway musicals.

As for television, I tend to re-watch shows that I’ve already watched before and love. Some of my favorites are Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Gilmore Girls, Grey’s Anatomy, and Outlander.

I enjoy a wide variety of movie genres from fantasy (Harry Potter, Stardust) to musicals (Rent, Chicago) to dramas (The Social Network, Spotlight) to teen comedies (Easy A, Pitch Perfect). I’ll also watch any baseball movie (A League of Their Own, Rookie of the Year, 42) and always make it to the theater to see the newest Disney movie (Moana, Finding Dory).
