Lord of the Rings (obviously), movies, video games, art, animation, outdoors, women, history, hiking, biking, cooking, photography, friends, etc.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
I had read part of the Lord of the Rings before I saw the movies and was heavily motivated to finish it after seeing them. I thought the world was so amazing and expansive, I wanted to go explore the forests and caves to look for treasure and magic. I thought Gandalf was the coolest guy ever (and still do haha). Overall it was amazing! I am currently rereading the Hobbit (which was the first Tolkien book I ever read).
Favorite Tolkien character:
Gandalf. He was always what I thought I wizard should be, amazingly powerful and wise as well as full of personality and charm.
