I love fantasy. That's why I draw dragon and stuff. I like historical-fiction too but I hate sci-fi. I'm more of a medieval person. I like the past not the future. Hee Hee! :D :D (Don't ask me why)
Way hay!!!!

I love fantasy, but I also love the books where every little thing that happens happens for a reason.

Do you follow?

I like whatever. As long as it's well written and has an interesting, consistent plot, I'll read it.

Probably my favorite books to read are classics (that's not a genre, though, is it?). Currently, I'm reading Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I love it! I guess I just enjoy the way older literature is written. I find contemporary stories too fast paced and simple. This is not always the case, but a lot of times it is.

Fantasy. I don't mind reading or writing other things from time to time (well, I'm not a big fan of sci-fi, it just never seems real to me. Or it's disturbing, I hate disturbing books or movies) but fantasy is my favourite and I read and write it ALL the time.

Fun, fun. Well, some here know what I would have picked.

Romance. But of course, indeed.

Don't know really why I got into it... Possibly because the romance in my life is nonexistant.

Well, alot have picked fantasy, and I like fantasy as well.

But romance, I think, tops that.

Fantasy. It's so malleable, it's not funny. I'd much rather read about man-eating ogres than some guy who has some troubles in his life...or something. However, I enjoy horror and sci-fi as well, albeit not all sci-fi. And horror usually when it's applied to fantasy, or is more 'fictious' or 'fantastical' than real (i.e. Underworld)

Action genres for me. Well, more like action/fantasy. But action is definatley my favorite. I'm not a big adventure genre fan though. I know these two usually go together, but action is better.

What about Realism? Why is that always overlooked and relegated to an "other"? The vast majority of modern literature is based on realism.
