permalink Hello everyone! I was wondering what genre you all liked? I am a heavy reader so I have a hard time choosing. I enjoy everything but I am leaning a bit toward fantasy at the moment.

everyone else? :)

permalink Mmmm I'm not sure what specific genre, but I know what kinds of books I like. ^^

I really like books that have societies that seem perfect on the surface, but underneath it's all twisted with corrupted ideals. Ex. The Giver, Brave New World, 1984, even Battle Royale and The Golden Compass to some extent.

I also enjoy reading Greek tragedies like Medea and Oedipus. :)[edit]Last edit by kimihana on Saturday 07 Feb, 2009 at 02:07 +2.5%[/edit]

permalink Well for me, I like to read a lot too, but my favorite genre of books are Urban Fiction. I'm sure not a lot of people on here would like to read those novels, but they are basically about Street life, they are those scandalous, graphic novels. But they keep my attention and I enjoy them. I don't connect to them really, but I can see that they are very realistic from what I do know. I also like other Romance novels, I like Biographies, and I also like other Non fiction in general. Especially history.

permalink See, I don't really have a favorite genre.

I like soo many.

Lately I have really been enjoying books that are about love...
I guess that would be romance :RBstickout:
But I like them all as I said.
So yeah.
It really just depends on my mood. :RBstickout:

If I'm sad I read sad books and the same for every other mood.
all in all, I'm not a very picky person.
I like to read

permalink Ahh! Same here, I love fantasy no matter what! :) I also like romance but I only read manga romance since the regular books don't interest me. So I mostly read mystery, fantasy, and sometimes culture/music once in a while. It makes me feel smart ;) lol, and it also lets me understand some stuff that I'm really curious about in those subjects.

permalink [i]Well, my favorite genre is actually fantasy - it's so much fun to read. My favorite series would have to be the Trickster series by Tamora Pierce, Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, the Alchemyst series by Michael Scott, the Night World Volumes by L. J. Smith, and the City series by Cassandra Clare. I'm always looking for more books though![/i][edit]Last edit by OrchidAngel19 on Saturday 04 Jul, 2009 at 02:21 +2.4%[/edit]

permalink has to be fantasy, mixed with adventure, action and comedy.

im not much of a romance, sci-fi person so i tend to stay away from those type of books. though occasionally my friends would lend me their chick-flicks and i would try to swallow them down :RBstickout:

permalink I used to read a lot of girly books, but now I've gained an interest in science fiction since reading Ender's Game last year. I also write a lot. What I right tends to be science fiction/fantasy type stories. I think I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like twilight right now. I've been thinking about putting some of the stuff that I write here on jpop asia.

permalink I suppose I have two favorite genera of books. The first is history. I love reading about thing that have happened. It gives me more insite into what is going on in the world today. I especially like American History. This is probably a home time type thing. I also like British History. Once gain these are where my people came from. I have also found the history of of Russia and Japan very interesting. Neither are nations that I or my ancestors are from. Still there is something about these two countries that intrigues me. They have both done so much with several disadvantages. It is just interesting to see how a nation over comes this type of situation.

Recently I have been more interested in the Mayan and Aztec civilizations. Once again they have no impact on my family tree. Still there is something about solving the mysteries of a lost civilization that is very interesting to me. Also there have been great leaps and bounds in translating their texts. So many thing that we did not know are now being revealed. It is just an exciting time for these two ancient civilizations.

Also I like the Imperial Roman History. I especially like Emperor Claudius. He was a wiley type but not in an evil way like Nero. Still he should have had his mother put out to pasture before she killed him. Still hindsight is 20/20

I have also been getting into the history of troy and sparta. Nothing like a good old fashioned grudge match.

permalink I love the harsh reality type of books.
So books that involve drugs, therapy, violence (some love and sex always thickens the plots :D )
I always find it weird though, because I'm sooo not a serious person, but these kinds of books make my life.
