Two Genres, Pick One, Some Explanation

Remember this? It’s back. Sort of.

I pit two genres against each other, I choose the one I prefer, and I offer a bit of an explanation. (Because I’m trying to be less lazy and more productive.)

Mystery vs. Fantasy

This is tough. Why did I start with this one? Sorry fantasy, mystery wins. Blame Baldacci.

Realistic Fiction vs. Science Fiction

I’ve always loved realistic fiction because I can understand what’s going on most of the time. Science fiction tends to go over my tiny head.

Horror vs. Thriller

I read King as a kid, so horror for sure.

Action vs. Adventure 

They are quite similar. I like action movies but adventure books. That’s fair, right? I’m not discriminating!

Magical Realism vs. Surrealism

I’ve encountered more magical realism than surrealism, which says a lot since I barely grasp the concept of surrealism.

Romance vs. Comedy

Love triangles will be the death of me. Any novel that can make me laugh out loud is a winner in my books.

Perhaps I’ll do this again with other genres in the distant future.

Let me know your answers. I’m curious. Create your own post or leave a comment down below. I’m not trying to tell you what to do. I promise.

      1. I feel like a lot of the romance novels are the same kind of romance too. It’s too cliche.
        Though I have to admit I am writing a romance myself, lol. I have many genres I want to try out.

Speak your mind!
