Favourite Movie Genre: That would be the pew pew genre. I love the flashy blockbusters with lots of action and lame one-liners. I switch off my brain and have a wonderful time. The Avengers is a great example. My favourite movies of all time however are fantasies: The Princess Bride and Ladyhawk. They are my indulgences.
Favourite Genre in Music: This one varies depending on my mood and why I’m listening to music. If I’m listening while I write then my favourite would be instrumental soundtracks with emotive beats. If I’m listening while doing anything else I think my favourite would have to be Rock, or anything with a strong drumbeat. My occasional guilty pleasure is trance music. I love the energy.
Favourite Genre in Books: No surprises here. While I read a wide range of genres, my favourites are anything speculative—fantasy, science fiction, paranormal, steampunk. If it’s strange and unusual I’ll read it. Occasionally I’ll indulge in reading stories simply for the beauty of the words, something fancy and florally with turns of phrases that make me go, “wow!” However, I do prefer my speculative reading to be written in a non-literary way.
What are your favourite genres?
