Favorite Genre's Bloghop

Oh. Let's see. My favorite genres you ask? That's easy to list!

This will be a short, fun post:)

Fiction:

 Christian Historical Fiction. Take me to another time and place and fill my mind with the romance of another era, and I may never come back.


Movie :

 Drama. I love to cry during a movie. and if I am sitting on the edge of my seat during the entire movie, then it gets brownie point:)

Music:

 Classical is my favorite. But no one in my house would listen to it, except during study times. So I guess I'll go with Christian Contemporary.

Guilty Pleasure?

Fantasy, Sci-fi Fiction and movie

50' and 60's sock hop music!
No wait. It's opera. No one in my family likes opera. But I do. Especially after a very stressful day.

  7. I love a good cry during a movie too. My last time I cried I watched The Help, and then there was War Horse. I can't watch any movie about a horse without bawling.

    Thanks for sharing! Love the new look of your blog!

  12. Hi,

    Dropping over for the blogfest. I must say I think your blog is THE most happy one I have ever seen. It speaks volumes about you ... quirky, fun, and especially welcoming and friendly.

    Glad I dropped by and followed.

    CLassical music is so inspiring. Too bad the family doesn't enjoy it as much as you do...

  15. I love classical music. One of my biggest personal frustrations is that I've never made a bigger effort to educate myself about it. That doesn't stop me from listening to classical radio stations, but I'd love to take a college course on the different periods/eras/composers.

    1. I have studied this and learned so much. It was fascinating. I studied the artists too with equal fascination:)

  16. Lovely choices! And I love how Christian Contemporary has become so much more mainstream now too. Such great music.

    Nice to meet you today!

  17. Although rock is my favorite genre of music, I also enjoy classical. Some of my faves are Rossini, Schubert, Mozart ("Barber of Seville") and of course, Beethoven.

    I once read a study (Harvard newsletter?) where it was proven that classical music significantly improved study habits and increased comprehension.

    As for crying in a movie, nah, not down with that. lol

  18. Classical isn't my favorite but there are times when it is just what I need. And I'll only watch a movie that makes me cry once.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I do enjoy classical music. Now if only I could tell my Mozarts from my Schuberts. :)

  20. I like classical music to listen to, but if you ask me WHO I'm listening to, I'd probably have no idea!

  21. Hi. Thanks for sharing. I write horror with a Christian spin to it, so I thought I would say hello. I listen to rock and 80's hair metal, but lean on classical music when writing and in need of drowning out the noise of the teenagers in the house. *laughs*
    Very good to meet you.
