I participated in an awesome, fun blogfest on Monday hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh..
So here they are:
Old Musicals like Oklahoma, Singin' In the Rain, Top Hat
Romantic Comedies like No Reservations, and Kate & Leopold
SciFi: like Star Wars, Star Trek, Blade Runner
Fantasy: Mirror, Mirror; The Princess Bride; LOTR; Harry Potter
Animated Movies like Tangled, UP, and Kung Fu Panda.
Fantasy books like: The Hobbit, the Narnia series, LOTR. (and a Happy Birthday to The Hobbit today!)
Scifi books like: Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game, Alex J. Cavanaugh's CassaStar and CassaFire
YA and MG like: the Hunger Games Trilogy, Divergent, the Farworld series, the Ranger's Apprentice series, and the H.I.V.E. series, Dragon Slippers.
Comic Collections: Snoopy, Calvin and Hobbes, Garfield
Children's Picture Books: Where the Wild Things Are, The Hungry Caterpillar, Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude, The Scroll and the Sword.
Literature: Much Ado About Nothing, Jane Eyre, Les Miserables, Macbeth, The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo, Kidnapped, Treasure Island, Henry the IV, parts 1 and 2.
The rare and occasional romance . . .usually a historical fiction romance combo, or a fantasy romance combo . . .usually handed to me by my mom.
Rare and occasional mysteries . . .usually Agatha Christie, Sherlock, or something of that kind.
Music: I grew up listening to musical sound tracks, folk, classical and western (my parents favorites) and r&b and jazz with one of my aunts. So just imagine listening to a mash of Oklahoma, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Hair, Harry Belafonte, The Kingston Trio, Joan Baez, Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Dizzy Gillespie, and Roberta Flack.
I didn't start listening to "pop" music until I turned eleven . . .so I had a smattering of Pink Floyd, Queen, and Olivia Newton John, Doobie Brothers, etc for a little while until my friends got me listening to Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, Prince, Bananarama, Billy Joel, and Rick Springfield (no, I didn't watch the soap opera stuff first). My first concert involved a chair riot while watching Night Ranger at a fairgrounds. (I kept my chair and stood on it because I'm so short). ACDC was the most popular band at my high school and although I'm not fond of their lyrics I have a tendency to know them . . .my senior class' theme was "Back In Black" in 1989.
So my tastes are pretty eclectic . . .but these days I mainly listen to Christian music . . .although as a family we've definitely driven down the road singing "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson.
And I never filled out the guilty pleasure category: Why? Because I don't feel guilty about my likes.
