Well, today is Alex J. Cavanaugh's GENRE FAVORITE'S BLOGFEST.... YAY! Gotta love Alex and his blogfests! Enter here:
List your favorite genre of:
And a guilty pleasure genre from any category.
How fun is this? Right? Well, come and join in the fun!
Can you imagine all the AMAZING possibilities?
As for me, I has such VARIED tastes, but I will certainly give you my favs ...
Movies are tough. I LOVE so many different types of movies and from all different eras. How could you not love the amazing dramas from the 1940's: the toe-tapping musicals of the 1950's; the screwball comedies of the 1960's; the never-ending mini-series in the 1970's; the "brat-pack" films of the 1980's; etc.
So how is one to choose? But, if I must, I would have to say that I really do adore Fantasy movies. My first love .... THE WIZARD OF OZ ... and then of course the first Harry Potter film: HARRY POTTER and the SORCERER'S STONE.
Books, again are impossible to choose. But I always have loved Nineteenth Century English literature. Dickens, the Bronte' sisters, Austen. Intense Dramas of daily life at that time: the social structure and the powerful, yet downtrodden women.
And then FANTASY! LOVE IT! All kinds, but just two authors. ROWLINGS and BROOKS. My total FAVS!
Ah, now for music. I am so in love with music. I LOVE IT ALL, except for the heavy metal stuff. Sorry Alex. Classical, instrumental, and strings are my all time favs. But I do enjoy beautiful voices and pop music. Again varied tastes.
If I must pic a guilty pleasure .... I really do hate to admit this, but there is one particular genre that I always enjoy watching in movies, yet it's not my favorite to read. I am such a sucker for Romantic comedies and CHRISTMAS FILMS! Give me a Christmas Romantic Comedy and I am in HEAVEN. So much from my macho image. LOL.
Perhaps that is why my posts for Romantic Friday Writers are so well received. I generally don't write Romance, but my blogger friends are raving about them. LOL.
Now that I have revealed my darkest secrets, do tell me YOURS! What are your favs and guilty pleasures. And no I don't mean anything CHOCOLATE, but I can so relate.
Have a great Monday everyone! And for my blogger buddies who enjoy the health and fitness posts, I had postponed Morgan Shamy's helpful tips until Wednesday. I hope you will drop by then and read how she stays in tip top shape ...
