Captain I mean, Ninja Alex asked us to share our four favorites genres!
Favorite movie, music, book genre and then a guilty pleasure
from any of the three categories~
This is difficult-but Ninjas are tough so they wouldn't hesitate to bring all they have to the blog, I mean table, no blog, maybe chair, lol
My favorite movie genre: Drama
I love real life drama, romantic drama, drama at sea, drama in space, Indie drama...
I love how many facets of life are exposed and I love to cheer for the underdog~
No not that Underdog....
(I do love an Underdog ;D)
Favorite music: oooh, tough
I am going to say Pop Rock. No, not the candy, Pop Rocks...do you remember those?
I found some recently and gave them to my kids!
Adele blurs the lines, I do not think of her music as pop. So this pick works for me, I can blur the lines a bit. I mean she did win for Pop Rock, but I still think of her music as a blues, jazz, n' easy listening type. I love sooo many types of music, country is my least favorite. I grew up hearing a lot of Johnny Cash, also jazz. My memories are tied up in a lot of music genres, so it was tough to pick a favorite~
My favorite book genre: Lately is historical fiction.
"Summer, 1890. Van Gogh arrives at Auvers-sur-Oise, a bucolic French village that lures city artists to the country. It is here that twenty-year-old Maurguerite Gachet has grown up, attending to her father and brother ever since her mother's death. And it is here that Vincent Van Gogh will spend his last summer, under the care of Doctor Gachet - homeopathic doctor, dilettante painter, and collector. In these last days of his life, Van Gogh will create over 70 paintings, two of them portraits of Marguerite Gachet. But little does he know that, while capturing Marguerite and her garden on canvas, he will also capture her heart." Learn more here~
I know sounds more like Romantic fiction...
It is like time travel, I can go back and see life in an different era. You can visit another world, time and place. ;D
Yes, you probably have guessed my guilty pleasure, lol.
Yes, Science Fiction is my guilty pleasure~
I haven't read this one yet! It is controversial and the hard copy is going for $99?! I'm happy it is available for Kindle~
Winner of the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novel
"Startling, unusual, and yet irresistibly readable, Among Others is at once the compelling story of a young woman struggling to escape a troubled childhood, a brilliant diary of first encounters with the great novels of modern fantasy and SF, and a spellbinding tale of escape from ancient enchantment.
I also love SciFi movies! I remember waiting in a mile long line, to get into Star Trek. I lived and breathed Star Wars. My parents managed a local Drive In theater when Star Wars premiered~ Dad hired a man to dress up like Darth Vadar...guess who he wanted to be Princess Leia. Sorry, Dad talk to my boss! We had 5 showings that day at the Colonial Theater~ If you can get me out of that gig, I'll be Leia. My Dad grew up with my boss. It didn't happen-Dad pranked called me at the theater instead. He was always calling me up pretending to be either an old woman asking inappropriate questions or an annoying child! I was the Ticket Girl~
