Three of a Kind is a series that lists books, shows, movies, podcasts and even music that pair well together. Each post highlights a particular theme and lists fictional worlds (and music) that revolve around the theme. Here’s something a little more mushy for a light sunday (said the lover of funny science fiction).
READ: Simon VS The Homosapien Agenda by Becky Albertalli
oreos + adorable protagonist + emails
Highlights: “White shouldn’t be the default any more than straight should be the default. There shouldn’t even be a default.”
Simon is the most adorable character ever. I don’t think I can emphasize this enough. The book had so much of positive energy and explored Simon coming out and dealing with the different facets of being a teenager in the best way possible.
WATCH: Inside Out
emotions as characters + sweet innocent Joy + life of a 11 year old
Highlights: Train of Thought
Adorable personified, literally. This show captures the workings of the brain in the simplest way possible- through animated characters that represent emotions. It’s so basic in thought yet exploding with creativity in implementation.
Watch: The Secret life of Walter Mitty
adorable shy guy + imaginative life + goes on an adventure
Highlights: Skating in Iceland
There’s a lot of whimsy in this movie and it will make you melt. Walter Mitty is a shy love struck guy who goes on an adventure and finds love. Its innocence and the beauty in the places he visits makes me forget how unrealistic the story is
While cutesy is so not my style, I think these cute stories are worth it. What would you add to this list?
