Favorite genre?

Post  Maggie on Thu Feb 10, 2011 5:18 pm

What's your favorite genre? Mine is Fantasy, always and forever, though I sometimes have enjoyed sci-fi, dystopian, and historical fiction.

My favourite genre is thrillers (particularly archaeological thrillers), but I also read mystery and YA fantasy.

YA Fantasy is definitely my favorite, but I've been known to really love dystopians and (usually paranormal) historicals--both YA. I was definitely a fan of 1984, though, which is obviously not YA, so there're exceptions to every rule. Smile

Favorites of mine would be(in order of most favorite) YA Contemporary, YA Historical Fiction, and then YA Fantasy. I can deal with some Sci-Fi (as in, Ray Bradbury) but not all.

Agreed about the sci-fi.

Argh, I feel like such the black sheep! Adult thrillers FTW! (I count psychological thrillers and police procedurals as the same thing.) Razz

I like psychological thrillers and police procedurals in TV and movie format, if that counts, lol--The Mentalist is probably my favorite show. Smile

Yes, Criminal Minds was one of my favorite shows! I still like it without Gideon, but it's not in the top five anymore. I watched the premier of Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior today--overall, I thought they were trying too hard to tell us the information they decided the audience needed, instead of letting the characters be themselves. But it was okay. It just felt like a bit of a rip-off. Monk and Psych are two of my favorites, as well--I like the mix of humor and seriousness(hence The Mentalist being my favorite). And I'll watch NCIS when it's on. Smile
