Post by kio »

Mine is fantasy. I just love the complex plots and the magic behind the story. What's your favorite genre? Why?

I love contemporary. I'm not a huge fan of fantasy or supernatural. I like to read books that are realistic because I feel like I can better relate to them.

I love fantasy, too! There's something about escaping to a world that is different than ours with magic and abnormal creatures that pulls me in and puts a smile on my face. :)

I love all genres except non fiction. But if I'm forced to choose, mystery and fantasy get me really smiley and brain cracking.

Once I used to think I don't really have a favorite genre, but then I realized that crime mysteries never seemed to disappoint me.

I enjoy thrillers and mysteries. Nothing excites me more than a complex plot full of riddles to be solved. I also have a love for historical fiction and classical romance novels and occasionally the odd contemporary novel that somehow caught my interest.

Growing up it was sci-fi. Now it is still, well sort of. Instead of space, the final frontier, I like futuristic, how we survive end of the world type stuff.
