    BEST OF 2017: Maggie Riney, Reference

    Our “Best Of 2017” series will be a bit different than most. Rather than having the staff write about things released this year, we’ve elected to allow anything they’ve listened to/played/read/watched this year that they’ve enjoyed. Favorite programs we’ve hosted also might make lists as well. This one comes to us from the Reference Department’s Maggie Riney.

    Stranger Things 2
    For me, the best MEDIA I have consumed in 2017 was Stranger Things season 2. From the character development of Will, to babysitter Steve, to Mike and Eleven’s story arc, I can say I ugly cried at least five times. “Bitchin’”.

    11/22/63
    I know this book came out several years ago, but it was easily in my top five reads of 2017. I’m not huge into Sci-Fi, but this time traveling novel leaves readers laughing, crying, and feeling nostalgia for a time they might not never have seen before.

    Raleigh Ritchie
    Artist of the year hands down is Raleigh Ritchie. Though, I’ve loved him for a long time, his release of “Unicron Loev” was constantly on repeat for me the first half of the year…maybe that’s why it’s my number one most played song of 2017 on Spotify.

    IT
    Never in my life would I think a horror movie about a clown rank as one of the best films I’ve seen this year. However, the 2017 retelling of Stephen King’s It, was so much than eerie vibes and a haunting plot. Ultimately, It is the story of friendships, or growing up, of loyalty, and the actors did such an amazing job I left the theatre feeling warm and happy compared to frightened. Other great flicks: Ladybird and Dunkirk

    I Love Hue (iOS link, Android link)
    5. I Love Hue: App wise, I Love Hue is a puzzle game I cannot put down. Free on the App Store, I Love Hue challenges the user to correctly match up colors in the right spectrum. With peaceful music and no time limit, I really do look forward to playing it as the night winds down.
