Genre Favorites Blogfest

That kooky author Alex Cavanaugh is at it again, hosting a fun blogfest HERE.

Genre Favorites Blogfest, September 17, 2012
One blogfest, four favorites!
List your favorite genre of:
Movie
Music
Books
And a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories!ย 
Okay, here goes:
1) My favorite MOVIE genre is…

DRAMA/ROMANCE

Titanic is my favorite movie (quit laughing!) and here’s a deleted kissing scene from the epic ship flick:
I also love The Shawshank Redemption, Speed, Godfather II, Terminator II, American Beauty, Gladiator, Die Hard, Moonstruck, Working Girl, A Fish Called Wanda, Grand Canyon, Prince of Tides, Ordinary People, and so many more.

2) Favorite MUSIC genre:

MAINSTREAM ALTERNATIVE

Now that’s an oxymoron! What I mean is that I love music that’s “alternative” but not too far out there.

My favorite song is With or Without You by U2.

Gah. What a beautiful, sorrowful song. Other artists I love are The Fray, Jack Johnson, Colbie Callait, Indigo Girls, John Mayer, Adele, Snow Patrol, and The Script.

3) Now, BOOKS! My favorite genre is…

ROMANTIC SUSPENSE

…which isn’t a surprise if you know what books I like to write. I adore author Pamela Clare, and I also enjoy fiction and YA contemporary.

4) Finally onto my GUILTY PLEASURE…

NEIL DIAMOND!

I love singing along to his songs, and there are SCADS of good ones like “Forever in Blue Jeans”:

Thank you Alex for this fun hop!

  1. Shawshank Redemption is one of my all-time favorite movies. Too funny, I also listed Neil Diamond. He's my hubby's favorite, so I've learned to appreciate him indirectly. ;-)Such a fun blogrest today. I'm #173.

  2. We have a lot in common. I do love Neil's voice and own a Christmas CD of his (which my hubby hates), but I don't think I'd be able to sing along with any of his songs. Now Barry Manilow, on the other hand…

  3. Working Girl was the first film I ever saw at the cinema. I love U2 – the first lines of With or Without You always make me tingle. I've never been a fan of Neil Diamond though – I saw a televised concert (or 10 mins of it) and had to turn over because the song he was singing wouldn't end!
