What if you could re-live the experience of reading a book (or watching a show) for the first time? Mark Oshiro provides just such a thing on a daily basis on Mark Reads and Mark Watches, where he chronicles his unspoiled journey through various television and book series. Since 2009, Mark has been subjecting himself to the emotional journey that one takes when they enter a fictional world for the first time. He mixes textual analysis, confessional blogging, and humor to analyze fiction that usually makes him cry and yell on camera. Since its inception, Mark has covered series such as Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, The Lord of the Rings, and genre favorites like Buffy/Angel, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Battlestar Galactica, and Veronica Mars. All of this earned Mark a Hugo Nomination in the Fan Writer category in 2013 and 2014, and he has no plans on stopping. Somehow, he is also writing the first book in a YA trilogy set in a pre-dystopian world, and he is still determined to fulfill a lifelong goal in the process: TO PET EVERY DOG EVER.
