What's your favorite genre to read?
Ouch, it's tough to pick just one. Fantasy edges out sci-fi on my bookshelf, so it wins.
I will always always say horror Splatter punk is the best genre of horror in my opinion as well
I don't read that much, I've always been into creating my own world. Same with guitar. I don't play other people's shit, I always rip it up freestyle.
But as long as the writer keeps it interesting (not many authors out there that do) then I'll actually read a book or two of theirs.
Gee it's kinda hard to pick between horror and fantasy.
It has got to be Fantasy for me.
I should also mention this will help determine the direction of a site's project I'm going to start come early January.
Definitely horror. I'm not really into fantasy...
I like general fiction stories that are off the beaten path. If you're familiar with A.M. Holmes then you know exactly what I mean.
Usually eclectic - but not with books
You know, it's funny. My tastes are usually so eclectic.
With music or with films I like all kinds of genres. But with reading, probably because of the huge amount of time and attention required to get through a book, I pretty much stick to what I like best - which is fantasy (a very popular choice too it seems).
I'm a fantasy junkie (which is why it's what I write). Tolkien, D&D and Fighting Fantasy are to blame - they were all a huge influence on me in my teens.
im gonna have to say stuff like
A thousand years of solitude or
Well-written thrillers are my favourites, although I read and enjoy quite a few genres.
Fantasy and General fiction for me.
Fantasy? Yes. Sci-fi? Yes. Comedy? Gimme. Horror? Sure, why not. Mystery? Why, of course!
But what is absolutely the best is if you can find a book that blends comedy with sci-fi, like Hitchhiker's or Discworld or Anansi Boys or the Pure Dead series.
fantasy has got my vote all the way, Eragon rocks!!!! Eldest Rocks!!!! The third book which hasn't come out yet im sure will rock!!!! Fantasy Rocks!!!!
Horror! Although I'm ultra-bias to reading only Stephen King's books. I also don't mind a bit of Michael Crichton - so I guess a science-like genre is my taste as well.
...um if i had to choose id have to say fiction of almost any type but if you want the whole cake! i would have to say anything with some action and a bit of a lovin goin down
Crime- Murders, Missing Person Cases, yeah anyone who can pull that plot off well is something I'll read. Books or fanfiction.
indeed this was a tough decision... most of what i read is fantasy, but as long as it's fiction i love it, so i said general fiction
Westerns or adventure, usually, though I probably read more non-fiction and technical manuals for purposes of research.
Ha haaaa. I know you, you sneaky little rodent!
Hmmm...it used to be Fantasy but I'm not so intrigued by fantasy anymore. I like Historical Fiction a lot more and I'm surprised that isn't a chocie up there... =/ I also like Christian fiction. =D Only if they're written well, like Francine Rivers' books. Gilbert Morris's make me shudder b/c the writing is so bad...
For a good fantasy series I will happily sell my unborn children. That being said, I do really like fiction, science-fiction, and the occasional historical fiction.
