Because reading and writing are my only obsessions

Genre Favorites Blogfest

Welcome to the Genre Favorites Blogfest hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh. Check here to see all the participants.

Favorite Genre of Movie:
I’ve always loved a great horror flick, and had one friend in high school who watched them all with me. Freddy, Jason, Michael Myers… A few of my favorites from the early years include Children of the Corn and Hellraiser.

 

Favorite Genre of Music:
Wow. I’m not sure exactly what to say for this one because I don’t know exactly how to classify it. I suppose rock music. But alternative rock is probably mixed in. Lite rock too.

Favorite Genre of Books:
Definitely contemporary young adult. I wrote my first YA story, then starting reading others. Fell in love with it and now read it all the time. I still love thrillers, adult contemporary, and historical fiction, to name a few others.

 

 

Guilty pleasure:
I think taking the time to completely watch a good (mind numbing) slasher movie is something I rarely do. Usually I have the laptop and half watch, have do computer stuff. Sometimes it’s fun to laugh at the ridiculousness of the gore.

Now go to Alex’s site to check out some other people’s favorites.

    Hey,

    I am sooo getting a kick out of this Blogfest.. it’s like we’re allllll answering mini-awards questions :)

    For example, I never had you down for a former slasher movie chick (I would have waited outside for you:) but isn’t it fun to revisit and wonder what *did* we see in those movies/books/shows :)

  2. Kyra Lennon Says:

    I’d probably consider those 80s horror movies more of a guilty pleasure LOL! I get a twisted thrill out of watching them, and Freddy still scares me!!

  3. PK Hrezo Says:

    lol…”Taking the time to watch a good slasher movie…” classic line there! We should all take more time for some blood and guts. hee hee

    I used to LOVE horror films and remember cringing to Children of the Corn. But over the years I lost my affinity for them. Guess I got weak. lol :)

  4. cd Coffelt Says:

    Silence of the Lambs is my fave of the slasher realm.

  5. Emily R. King Says:

    I like alternative rock too. And YA fiction is great, so long as there’s romance in it. :)

  6. Morgan Shamy Says:

    LOL! I can’t believe your guilty pleasure! I would’ve never guessed!

    Fun list, Suzi. This is way fun!

  7. Danielle B Says:

    I’m lovin all the horror lovers out here! Another rocker!

  8. Jeremy [Retro-Zombie] Says:

    horror and darkness is the best… go in that room, there is nothing behind that door. trust me..

  9. Murees Dupé Says:

    Horror movies are great, just as long as it doesn’t involve children being the bad guys. There is just something about creepy children that freak me out. Thank you for visiting my blog.

  10. Alex J. Cavanaugh Says:

    Rock covers a lot, so that’s probably a good description.
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

  11. Kimberly Gabriel Says:

    I love that you enjoy horror and a good slasher flick. The 80s has some true classics in those categories.

  12. The Golden Eagle Says:

    YA Contemporary is a great genre. It includes some amazing books!

  13. Jackie F. Says:

    Woohoo for another horror and YA fan!

  14. Rachel Schieffelbein Says:

    Horror is my husband’s favorite, too. I like reading horror, but I don’t like to watch the gorey stuff.

  15. Stina Lindenblatt Says:

    Horror movies freak me out, but I did watch them as a teen, especially the ones with the cute guys. Ever notice how the cute guys always die and only the female protagonist lives?

    I love YA contemporary too. It’s one of my favorite genres.

  16. Carrie Butler Says:

    Rock and YA? Sounds like fun to me! :)

  17. Li @ FlashFiction Says:

    I must be the only person left on earth who hasn’t seen any Nightmare On Elm Street or Halloween movies!

  18. James Garcia Jr Says:

    Hey! A Hellraiser shout-out. You don’t see that very often! I grew up w/ Freddie, Jason & Michael. That’s what got me started writing horror, I guess. Love the rock, too.
    Thanks for sharing, Suzi.
