Oh, a chance to expound on my reading habits! Fun, fun, fun. I am very fond of well written fantasy, am intrigued by sci-fi (specifically Orson Scott Card's Ender cycle) but can really enjoy any genre. I'm quite eclectic. My only true dislikes are smutty romance, overblown thrillers, and icky horror. Oh, and anything that I percieve as juvenile. Artemis Fowl is probably one of the last children's books that I still love. I like to think that I have good taste. Wink

In any book, I love (in no particular order), tragedy/drama (The Grapes of Wrath *sigh*), clever plotting (The Westing Game, anyone?), romance (Gone With The Wind kind), in-depth characterizations (OSC!), thought-provoking ideas (OSC again!), pretty figurative language, wit, and emotional depth (which goes along with everything else). Epics are fun.

I personally think that J.K. Rowling has accomplished all of this in Harry Potter, though other authors can do particular things better.

Yes, I've given all of this a lot of thought before! Sorry if you have a problem with it, lol.

Ah yes, The Sight has an awesome feeling to it when the characters are being torn apart. Such a good book.

But anyways, I like a sad book about loyalty and faith and doing what's right. For example, Warriors. One of the scenes in the book were about an old Cat who had her last litter of kittens before she got too old. She only had one kitten, and that kitten was deaf. All the cats of her clan warned her about how the kitten wouldn't hear battle cries, orders, or if a predator was coming. But the mother didn't care, and she tried teaching her kitten everything it needed to know to become a Warrior. The kitten and mother got very close, but one day, a hawk swept down to the clan's camp and snatched the deaf kitten from where it slept. The mother was depressed, and too old to have any more kittens.

I like a sad book, like that. Also, I like humorous books. I think you know which humorous books in particular I'm talking about. >w<

I read nearly everything, with the exception of those Mary Kate and Ashley and Sweet valley high and anything that falls into that ctaergory. I prefer moving stories which make me cry... and with action but lots of emotion. I like humor too, and although I really don't like admitting it, romance.

I like books that have depth, meaning, surprises and humour. Just as long as a book has those two factors, I don't mind the genre (although like Slepyhead, I don't like Mary Kate/Ashley books).

I despise most "teen/chick-flick books" as my friends classed them. I can't stand them. Mad

I don't mind a bit of humour in a book, but I tend to go for the more serious, epic books. Though I do like some of the classics, I get bored with most of them. Well written romance is a must-have in all my favourite books, [s]I love romance.[/s] but only when it's done well. Harry Potter romance is sickening, as is romance in the Supernaturalist and books written for romance [chick-flicks].

Some books do romance okay, ie. The Old Kingdom books- the romance is sweet, but not really centre stage. And then you have WoT romance, which I LOVE. ANd stuffs...
