You know I have always been a sci-fi/fantasy freak for as long as I can remember. I've rarely gone to chick flicks at the movies, and I usually don't purchase them for my DVD collection or the books I'd buy.
In fact, it is hard for me to wrap my head around someone not liking a good old fashioned alien or monster movie, of course, with a lot of action packed scenes and over the top special effects, especially now a days with the way they can make it look so real.
When my friends (women ones) want to go see the latest chick flick, I am arguing that I would rather wait until the DVD comes out to spend my money on it. I want to go see Avatar, or Star Trek where you need a big screen to watch it to get the full effect.
The same goes for TV. The only "cop" drama series I ever really watched was X-Files. I have seen a few episodes of CSI, but I still prefer Game of Thrones or Falling Skies. My friends think I'm crazy, and maybe I am a little bit, but give me the action, give me the aliens. I want to see space, or a fantasy world like Frotto Baggin's.
When it comes to reading though, I will read out of these genres. I do like a good historical fiction, or thriller. But my favorite books, hands down, are the Game of Throne series and Harry Potter.
Take me away to another world. Show me other possibilities, another way of life. Give me action that gets my heart racing. Love it!
What types of movies, or books do you like? What is the one TV show you hate to miss and got a DVR just so you won't? Hey life's to short to watch reality shows and cop dramas. Those are every day hum drum stuff.
Leave me a comment and tell me what's your favorite. Me, I'm back to creating my fantasy world Djenrye so that I can share it with you!
Update - Our blog tour will begin next Thursday. I will list the site links for you each week as they happen. I will also have a guest on this blog next week, Shay West.
