Genre Favorites Blogfest

Alex J. Cavanaugh is hosting his SEVENTH blog fest today and it’s all about–you guessed it–genre favs!

Participating bloggers are asked to share their favorite genres for movies, books, and music.

Gotta say, my tastes are pretty simple.

My favorite movies are action blockbusters (usually with a sci fi, fantasy, paranormal, or magical twist)

THE LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy and the HARRY POTTER series are my ALL TIME favs!

My favorite book genres include paranormal and scifi–either YA or adult. I also enjoy urban fantasy.

My favorite music includes alternative rock (a la Bush, Five Finger Death Punch, Alice in Chains, Breaking Benjamin, Pearl Jam, etc), classical, and I LOVE movie soundtracks (LoTR, Harry Potter, Batman (a la Dark Knight), etc).

How about you? What are your fav genres?


Need a character “shrink-wrapped?” Ask me! I’ll feature your question on Mental Health Monday! 🙂

    No question, suspense, mystery, and literary–books and movies! Also, though, I love good comedy, which is incredibly hard to write or act.

  8. Leigh Moore says:

    what a fun fest! I love all kinds of movies, really–action, romcom, drama, indies… for music, I’m also just everywhere. Rock, rap, dance, classics–I like movie soundtracks, too! b/c they help me remember my favorite parts. As for books, well, I’m pretty straight forward–romance/any subgenre~ 😀 ❤

    We share similar movie and music tastes. 😀 I like the bands you picked.

  16. Hi, Laura. I always keep an open mind for new music. I am familiar with many of those you mentioned, and will have to give the others a try. Thanks for sharing. I don’t really read a lot of Fantasy, but the first Lord of the Rings film really sucked us all in, didn’t it? Jackson really outdid himself with the series. It’s so great that he finally ended up working on The Hobbitt. *waves*


  17. All great choices! I always liked The Hobbit a bit more than LOTR, but they’re all related. ;-p
