Genre Favorites Blogfest!


It's that time again...

Another fabulous blogfest hosted by none other than our famous Ninja Captain... 

Alex J. Cavanaugh! 


One blogfest, four favorites!
List your favorite genre of:
Movie
Music
Books
And a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories!

Favorite Movie: The classics. Anything with Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire. 

Favorite Music: Anything from the Baroque period.

Favorite Books: Diana Gabaldon. (Yes, she is her own genre.) Hands down. Best. Author. Ever. 

Guilty Pleasure: The Vampire Diaries! Technically it's not a movie, but yup, I'm open about loving it... Can we say Ian Somerhalder? 

Thanks, Alex, for hosting. It'll be fun to pop around and see who else is participating! 

And make sure to stop by Michael Di Gesu's blog on Wednesday. I'll be doing a guest post on being a writer and staying fit!

Red. Head. Out. :D

  2. What Elise said...

    *What did Elise say?*

    I dunno, check what Kyra say?

    *Oh, ok...*

    So, what did she say?

    *Check for yourself*

    Really? You're going to make me?

    *Yes.*

    Whatever, dude.

    *No need to get your knickers in a twist.*

    Hmmp.

    *Well. I. Say.*

    1. I've heard of her, but I haven't read her stuff yet. *blush* I do have one of her books on my TBR shelf. Considering the number of people mentioning how good her writing is, I'll have to read it sooner rather than later. ;)

      Great post! :)

  8. Don't know why, but your answers surprised me! That's the funny thing about meeting people on the Internet isn't it? We can put our own thoughts to that person's face :)

  9. If it's not Baroque ... (you know the rest of the joke).

    Awesome, Morgan. I thought for sure you were a heavy metal guru. That's apparently not true. :)

  11. I am totally not surprised by your movie and music choices. :)

  12. Ah, Vampire Diaries! I've stopped classifying it as a guilty pleasure, even. I admit my love of it to everyone. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ahh, Baroque. Home of the original one-hit wonder: Pachelbel. I do enjoy L'Orfeo, though.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love Vampire Diaries too! What is Baroque??

    1. Hi Sheena-kay! Baroque is a period between the 1600-1700's-ish... I love the music written during that time! Bach, Vivaldi... sigh...

  15. Oh I love Gene Kelly! And Diana Gabaldon!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love older movies as well. All of that singing, dancing, and acting. Talented!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Some great selections, there. I have to look up Ian Somerhalder,since I don't watch much TV. Cute.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You love Baroque music? Wow. I listen to it to when the mood strikes me. Bach, Handel, and some Vivaldi!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I agree with what Elise said... What Krya said. ;) Love Diana Gabaldon.

    ReplyDelete
  20. You LOVE Baroque music.... Well, do I have the CD for you .... Stringed Barque music... SO AWESOME! I will dig it up and send you the specifics...

    I play it to death during the holidays. Sending email to you. For some reason it't taking it's sweet time. It should have been sent by now...

  22. I love that you have such "old soul" choices, and then *boom* TVD for guilty pleasure. Man, I sure do love me some TVD and Ian, and I also have to chime in with - what Kyra said!

    I enjoyed reading about your favorite genres,
    Jocelyn

  26. Interesting list! Diana Gabaldon is brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  27. All I generally read is YA, but I've never checked out Vampire Diaries. I might look into that. I like your blog. I'm a mom of five, so I thought I'd follow you. We crazy people have to stick together. haha :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yay for another TVD fan! I can't wait for the new season! #TeamDamon

    ReplyDelete
  31. Stopping by on the blog fest. Nice to meet you. Great blog here. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, man...I love Gene Kelly. Excellent choice.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh My God, I LOVE the Vampire Diaries. Yes, I can say Ian Somerhalder and frequently do...

    I also love Gene Kelly quite a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'll never be able to think of Baroque anything without hearing my 10th grade European History AP teacher's comment, "Baroque, think butts in seats." He told us Baroque art and music was kind of a way for the Catholic Church to lure back people during the Counter-Reformation, and compared it to the part of Sister Act where modern music draws in more congregants.

    I haven't read any Diana Gabaldon, but I've heard a lot about her books. I love a good historical saga that stretches for over a thousand pages.

  35. The first one I have come across that lists classic musicals too :)

    Siv Maria's blog, Been there, done that...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Interesting choices. Everyone says that my voice is geared to Baroque music, which is apparently a good thing, since not a lot of people can do it. :-D

    I love Gene Kelly movies. :-D

    ReplyDelete
  37. Morgan~ you're one of those classy chicks I make the heroine of stories! A ballerina who likes music without words...if that isn't the beginning of a Harlequin, I don't know what is!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ah! A familiar face! Hello, Morgan. Thanks for joining the blogfest. It was cool to get your choices, especially because they were quite different than others I have seen so far.

  41. An acquaintance of mine got to meet Ian Somerhalder and I'm still burning with jealousy. I quite enjoy classic films, as well, but haven't had the chance to read Gabaldon yet.

  42. Okay, Ian Somerhalder allows you to claim that guilty pleasure.

    ReplyDelete
