The new year is here, and I’m a tad late getting this piece out, but there was no way I would miss it altogether. At the end of every year I love to look back on all of the entertainment I took in, naming my favorite production or event of several different mediums. Below you’ll find what my personal favorite movie, novel, television show, comic, video game, and sporting event of 2019.
2017 was probably the most jammed-pack year that I can remember in the field of entertainment. Across the mediums of film, television, video games, comics, literature, and sports, there were too many significant releases and events to count. No matter where your interests lie, it felt like there was something memorable for you.
I am very thankful that so many of my passions were appropriately catered to last year, to the point where this annual “Favorites” list that I do here on my webpage is easily the hardest I’ve ever had to put together. After a lot of deliberation, I’ve decided on my favorite movie, novel, television show, comic book, video game, and sports event that I experienced last year.
February’s not even over with, yet, but it’s been a busy and productive first couple of weeks to start this year. I’ve completed a rough draft of the third and final book in The Luminous Legend trilogy, although I have to admit that I’m still cleaning it up, and likely will be for a few more weeks. I’m also returning to the first book in the series to begin revisions for its re-release, which I will have concrete details to announce in the next couple of months.
One project I’ve regrettably kept quiet about around here is a website called The Geekiverse, which my good friend Josiah LeRoy launched in 2014. Josiah and I have been best friends since we were Freshman in high school (which seems way too darn long ago now), so he knows as well as anyone my love of movies, comics, video games, and television, which is what the Geekiverse does all of its coverage about. As I was deep into the second book for my high fantasy trilogy The Luminous Legend, Josiah tried repeatedly to recruit me as a part-time contributor to his website, but I just didn’t feel comfortable committing to it while I was still working on that second novel.
I really wish I had more time on my hands, because I could spend hours writing about the seemingly-endless movies, video games, and tv shows set to release this year, along with the laundry list of books and comics that I plan to read throughout 2016. It’s going to be another busy year for me just when it comes to my entertainment choices, but I can’t wait to jump in on it all. Until then, here’s my list of what’s got me most excited for the year.
