I'm not sure if it would count as a genre or not, but my favourite type of writing is children's literature. I love the classics like Peter Pan and Winnie the Pooh. I also like fantasy books such as Harry Potter. The same goes for film genre, although I like sci-fi films, but am not so keen on sci-fi books. I think the technobabble in books gets too laborious.
I'm a sucker for a drama/romance book. Like the stuff Marian Keyes or Cathy Kelly writes. They have parts where you can laugh, parts where you could cry and they have relatable characters. I don't need it to be mills or boon or all fine and dandy. Some drama, ups and downs makes them amazing.
Fantasy for me: Lord of the Rings, Game of a Thrones, Wheel of Time. Even the children's literature I like tends towards fantasy, although I used to love a school story when I was younger, or adventures like Swallows and Amazons, the Chronicles of Narnia, the Famous Five, and other classics like that.
I tend to read more of nonfiction books e.g. self-help and memoir. I find them enriching and in a way, food for the soul.
For me I love Biographies to see how people got through life, and challenges, good times bad times.

I find a lot of encouragement for my own life, and also some very good advice.
Everyone has a story to tell, and the fact they took the time...and told 'what really made them' the people they are.

The best thing is that they write from their thoughts, even if not well written.....it is still a look.
Being too focused on our lives, we tend to forget their are some really amazing human beings out there.
I read a lot of different types of books, but I think the one I read most is probably detective/mystery stories. I'm a big fan of Reginald Hill (of the Dalziel and Pascoe and Joe Sixsmith series) and Agatha Christie, as well as historical mystery series like Kerry Greenwood's Miss Fisher's Mysteries (set in 1920's Australia) and Lindsay Davis' Falco mysteries set in ancient Rome.

I also read a lot of books about zombies, which I suppose is a subgenre of horror books.
The classics; The Bronte's, Jane Austen. There is nothing like warming up to a 19th Century novel on a rainy night. I also love mysteries and modern fiction. Poetry throughout the ages I can read for hours.
I like a good mystery book with lots of suspense and a twist in the end that leaves you gasping for air!
suspense, thriller, action with a bit of romance. it's the same as my favourite movie genre.
I collect old children's books that have those gorgeous old fashioned colour plates and illustrations.
While i look through them regularly, my favourite reading genre are crime thrillers and romance.

Used to read much Crime Fction, but now more of the True Crime, especially Australian ones'.

Other than that, I read factual books on subjects in which I'm interested, eg Archaeology, Geology, Astronomy etc.
Factual books, General knowledge, Classics, and some Sci - Fi.
