Oh, I love a good blogfest, and today, Alex J. Cavanaugh is hosting one! *Squee*
(P.S. I’m sure you guys are tired of me squee-ing all over my blog, but I’m just an excitable person!)
One blogfest, four favorites!
List your favorite genre of:
And a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories!
Movie: Good-hearted Fun
Not sure if that’s an actual genre, if not, then I’m making it up (we’re writers, it’s what we do, hahaha).
Most of my favs probably border on stupid funny. Give me flicks like The Princess Bride, Nacho Libre, Napoleon Dynamite, Baby Mama, Spaceballs, The Jerk, Mystery Men (pretty much anything with Ben Stiler in it), and Elf (totally should’ve won an Oscar IMHO).
Music: Christian Rock
Okay, go ahead and poke fun at me! This one was a bit harder since I really listen to everything, but mainly the local Christian station because as their slogan states, “It’s safe for the little ears in your family,” and well, I like to shelter my children! As a teacher, I can tell you that we don’t have enough innocence and wonder left in kids these days. There are no more mysteries, they know it all. Okay, I’ll stop preaching. Some of my favs I like to rock out to are: Building 429, Barlow Girl, Need to Breathe, Newsboys (seen them so many times in concert I feel like they’re my distant cousins), Third Day, Skillet, and Superchick.
Books: Everything YA
Especially paranormal and fantasy. If you need some good picks, I recommend The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices Series, The Hunger Games and Harry Potter (obviously), The Cambion Chronicles, Soul Screamers books, The Sweet Trilogy, Divergent Trilogy, Halflings Series, and The Kane Chronicles (and yes, all of those have at least a wee-bit of romance in them–every good book does!)
Okay, now for a guilty pleasure from any of these categories.
Johnny Stecchino is a 1991 Italian comedy film directed by and starring Roberto Benigni (the guy who won an Oscar for Life is Beautiful and stood on the back of the chairs and applauded. He’s one wild & crazy guy!)
Johnny Stecchino is about a kindhearted but bumbling idiot who likes to steal bananas.
I recommend inviting your friends over for banana splits and watching the movie.
Trust me, you’ll be ROTFL:-)
So, dear friends, what are your favorites?
