Genre Favorites Blogfest by Alex J. Cavanaugh

Tonight I’m taking part in the Ninja Master‘s Genre Favourites Blogfest.
Initially, I thought participating in this blogfest would be easy. After all, all I have to do is list my favourite genre of movie, music, books and a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories. But then I realised something… I don’t really have genre favourites! Seriously, I don’t! So, instead, I’m going to list a handful of my specific favourites in each category, which will give you an idea of how NOT clustered into genre they are.
Favourite movies
  • Romeo and Juliet
  • Death at a Funeral
  • Moulin Rouge
  • Cruel Intentions
  • Knocked Up


Favourite music
  • Lisa Mitchell
  • Missy Higgins
  • The Beatles
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • The Eagles
  • Powderfinger

Favourite books

  • Room by Emma Donoghue
  • 48 Shades of Brown by Nick Earls
  • Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (yes, I know, I know. Be quiet)
  • Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
  • The Time-Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
  • The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay

My guilty pleasure 

Since I’m already breaking the rules, I’m going to share a guilty pleasure that doesn’t actually fit into any of the above genres. But it’s still entertainment, so I’m not straying too far. My guilty pleasure is… reality television. Right now, as I’m writing this, I’m watching Big Brother Australia (nomination night!) and taping X Factor Australia. I also quite enjoy Misbehaving Mums to Be and World’s Strictest Parents. I even like Border Security. Yes, it’s a very, very guilty pleasure!

Your turn

Do you have favourite genres or are your favourites all over the place like mine?
