Top Ten Tuesday: favorite movies and TV shows

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Let’s talk about other types of stories! Top Ten Favorite Movies or TV Shows! (can break it down to top ten favorite romance movies or comedy shows etc. etc.)

So one thing you should probably know about me is that I’m a culture fiend. I love books, music, movies, television, theater, art… So I was really excited about this week’s Top Ten Tuesday so I could share some of my love of two of these things with you. I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to give top ten favorite movies AND top ten favorite TV shows! 🙂

MOVIES:

Donnie DarkoDonnie Darko

El laberinto del fauno (Pan’s Labyrinth)

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (one of the best, if not the best book to movie adaptation I’ve ever seen)

Los Ojos de Julia (Julia’s Eyes)Julia's Eyes

American Psycho

The Dark Knight RisesDriving Lessons

Driving Lessons

Fight Club

Martian Child (I was going to put Say Anything, but I think I love Martian Child more because of that adorable kid)The Family Stone

The Family Stone (only during the holidays – but about ten times during the holidays. Haha)

I could go on and on, but I’ll end it there. If you couldn’t tell, I really love psychological thrillers aka movies that screw with your mind. And a few comedies. 🙂

TV SHOWS:

Teen WolfTeen Wolf (you’re all shocked, I know)

LostSherlock

Doctor Who

Sherlock

The Big Bang Theory

Criminal Minds

Bates MotelBates MotelAbout a Boy

Tom and
Jerry (yep, I’m a kid at heart)

2 Broke Girls

About a Boy

 

What about you? What are your favorite movies or TV shows?

TEEN WOLF

Okay, I know this is a book blog, but I am so freaking excited and I need more people to be excited with me. I’m fangirling like crazy. Season Four of Teen Wolf premieres tonight on MTV at 10/9c. AHH. Okay, I’ll calm down.

Anyway, this post is for anyone who might be interested in learning more about Teen Wolf or anyone who watches and needs a refresher. If you are so inclined, I’ve recapped all of the seasons of Teen Wolf so far over on WatchPlayRead.

WARNING: THERE ARE SPOILERS. LOTS OF THEM.

Season One

Jackson after Derek

Season Two

Kanima

Season Three, Part One

Stiles in bathtub

Season Three, Part Two

Top Ten Tuesday: books to read if you like these tv shows or movies

toptentuesday

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again, you guys! Yay! This week’s theme as laid out by The Broke and the Bookish is:

Top Ten Books If You Like X tv show/movie/comic/play etc. (basically any sort of other entertainment)

You can find the rest of the themes for upcoming weeks HERE.

This was a particularly difficult theme for me at first because I thought that I should pick one specific tv show, movie, or play, but then I realized, I could just do ten different books for ten different tv shows or movies. So that’s what I did! Maybe this will help you find your next favorite read!

NOTE: I’ve never actually watched Breaking Bad; also, I have linked each tv show and movie to their IMDB page, and each book is linked to its Goodreads page.

Let’s do tv shows first, shall we?
