1 blogfest, 4 favorites


 Ninja Captain Alex  is hosting another blogfest!  This time its One blogfest, four favorites!


List your favorite genre of:


Movie -  action.  Top Gun, Batman, Point Break, Gladiator, Troy, Braveheart, Indiana Jones, Rocky.  Fast paced with strong characters - what's not to like?



Music:  would have to be 90's rock/alternative. Pearl Jam, Guns N Roses, U2, Nirvana, Oasis, Cranberries, Metallica, The Offspring, Beastie Boys, Rage Against the Machine,  Blind Melon, Wheezer.... they just won't make music like that anymore.






Books -  This is the hardest genre for me to pick from because my reading taste varies with my mood, and I often have multiple books on the go at the same time.... if I were to pick one it would have to say currently its YA.  The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, His Dark Materials, The Hobbit, The Maze Runner, Divergent, The Matched, Shiver, Creatures.  (I just notices they are all series)  




And a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories!

Romantic Comedies!  I Love romantic comedies! The Wedding Singer, 10 things I Hate About You, PS I love you, Sweet Home Alabama,  Reality Bites, There's Something about Mary, 13 going on 30, Bridget Jones, 40 Year Old Virgin, The Little Mermaid.  





Remember to check out this post, for you chance to be part of my Chocolate giveaway winner will be drawn Sept 30)

  2. I'm with ya on the romantic comedies.... The Wedding Singer was AWESOME and so was PS I Love You (oh that hunky Irish guy, oh-oh-oh, and how I bawled through all of it.) And OH YES 13 Going on 30 and Bridget Jones (LOVE Bridg). Happy sighs of agreement here.

  4. Great choices with all of this especially on the music aspect Bay Girl. I actually quite like some romantic comedies, 28 dresses was incredible. I prefer action flicks though.

    1. I was upset they couldn't pull it together for the rock n roll hall of fame - would have been killer

  7. I agree, those movies are great!
    I like YA books, but I confess sometimes I have to get something else in between them ...
    Oh, romantic comedies! LOVE!

    1. I seem to have periods of time where YA is all I want, then I find myself wandering to some true crime

  8. OMG we are of one mind, Baygirl! I love action movies too, 90's alternative music, and YA. What'd you think of Divergent? I didn't like it quite as much as Hunger Games but it was still good. I'm a new follower.

  12. Yay! Another 90's music lover. I saw a lot of the bands you listed in concert. The Offspring was great, but I got knocked out half way through. Took a ski boot to the head. :)

  14. Love Indiana Jones, YA novels, and romantic comedies...but I think I might feel tortured if I had to listen to too much 90s rock. I'm more the rock and roll from the 50s type. :D

  15. Good YA choices. Those are some of my favourites!

  19. Okay, I'm totally following your site. Every book series you named I LOVE. Not many people list His Dark Materials trilogy in their faves. I have read those books so many times.

    Nineties Alt is awesome. Gladiator is one of my all time favorite movies. Maggie Stiefvater is one of my favorite authors. And I've seen The Wedding Singer, Ten Things I Hate about You, Thirteen Going on Thirty and The Little Mermaid at least six or seven times each.

    Nice to meet you!! :)
