The Wendig Yeary Wrap Up

Chuck Wendig over at posted a little questionnaire about how 2014 has shaped up. I decided to steal it from him, as I do not fear him or his warmongering googe, and thought I'd share it over here.

Here that, Chuck? I fear neither you nor your goose. Consider you both cooked!

1) Favorite novel of the year?
2) Favorite non-fiction book of the year?
3) Favorite short story of the year?
4) Favorite movie of the year?
5) Favorite TV show of the year?
6) Favorite song of the year?
7) Favorite album?
8) Favorite video game?
9) Favorite app?
10) Favorite [something else] of the year?

1. My favorite novel of the year, besides The Last Ringbearer, would have to be rereading the Song of Ice and Fire series with my Mom. She really got into the series after watching the TV show and it was awesome to read through it again and see her insights into the series. Even though I prefer House Mormont, we'd both make great Starks.
2. My favorite non-fiction book  was the Guns of August, which was a look into World War I. I now know where the Guns of August Society get their name from in KODT!
3. The story about the Cygnarans in the Warmachine book Vengeance. It was really well done, and I enjoyed reading te stries in there.
4. Guardians of the Galaxy, hands down! It was amazing on so many levels and I laugh when thinking about my favorite scenes. It was well worth the wait, though I'm sad we have to wait until 2017 for the sequel.
5. I didn't get to watch a ton of TV this year but I'd have to say it's a toss up between House of Cards and Agents of Shield. House of Cards brought the drama, and Agents of Shield finally picked up steam and delivered what I was hoping for in the show.
6. My favorite song of the year has to be Capital Cities - Safe and Sound. It always makes me feel more optimistic when I hear it.
7. I didn't buy that many albums this year, but the Guardians of the Galaxy - Awesome Mix 1 has to be my favorite.
8. I don't buy that many video games, and while it had a ton of problems that I talked about in another post, I really love Destiny. I loved the co-op game play and I have had many great times doing the weekly missions with Bryan, Dereke, John, and Rico.
9. My favorite app has been the Google Drive app as it lets me work from the hookah cafe and access the files I need. I also get to work cooperatively with others on projects thanks to it.
10. Starting up my own company and putting serious groundwork into a game that I hope to have ready for Kickstarter next year. It is so amazing and fun to work on and I hope that translates into the game itself.

How about you guys?
