Question: Book Series/TV Show You Wish You Could Experience Again for the 1st Time #atozchallenge

So a good portion of the attendees are not writers, they're fans. This gives a whole different feel to the convention, and it's a lot of fun to see the enthusiasm of readers interacting with their favorite authors.

And this past week I had the pleasure of attending a panel given by a group of paranormal authors including Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood series), Jeaniene Frost (Night Huntress series), and moderated by Richelle Mead (The Vampire Academy series). Now I'm a big fan of both the Sookie Stackhouse books and The Vampire Academy, but I've never read Jeaniene Frost. So when fans in the audience would whoop and clap when Jeaniene mentioned something about certain characters or books, it made me want to read the books. Clearly, they must be good if people are so passionate about them.

And that got me to thinking--wow, there's this whole great series I've clearly missed out on. But now I get the lovely opportunity to experience these books as a series "virgin". It will all be new to me and I hope that when I do get a chance to pick them up, I feel as rabid as those fans in that room did.

It also got me to thinking about which books and TV shows I wish I could go back in time for and re-experience again because that first time was so, so good. You can always re-read something, but it's never quite like that first time when everything was new and unexpected, when your emotion was fully invested in it.

So I want to know which series or TV shows have given you that "wish I could go back again" feeling.

Here are some of mine...

The Sookie Stackhouse books

 

The Vampire Academy books

 

Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments Series

 

The Wrinkle in Time books by Madeleine L'Engle

 

Diana Gabaldon's Outlander

 

TV Shows (I don't know if some of these would be the same now or if they just hit me at the exact right time in my formative years):

Dawson's Creek

 

Friends

 

My So-Called Life

 

Lost

 

Alright, those are a few of mine, tell me some of yours. Share with us what series we MUST read or show we MUST watch. Which do you wish you could go back in time and experience again for the first time?

 

Boyfriend of the Week: Joshua Jackson

So this week, I'm rocking it old school (wait, is saying rocking it old school too...old school?) Nevermind. Let's just say I'm reaching back to my late high school/early college days and featuring my big time crush....Joshua Jackson.

Yes, I know he's on that show Fringe and I fully intend on netflix-ing the seasons, but in my heart of hearts, Joshua Jackson will always be Pacey from Dawson's Creek to me.

Yes the show was called Dawson's Creek, but for me it was all about bad boy/funny guy/chip on his shoulder/romantic Pacey. *gives a little high school style sigh*

Now unfortunately, Mr. Jackson seems to only pose with his shirt on, but he's still pretty nice to look at all dressed and stuff. (If you're itching for more naughty pics in general, then check out my new hotness tab up above.)

 So any other die hard Dawson Creek fans out there? If so, were you a Dawson or Pacey fan? If not, what is your nostalgic teenage/YA show?
