I dunno. I prefer speculative fiction of all kinds to more mundane fare, but I'll read(edit:)/play/watch the latter anyway if things pique my interest.
I'm not particularly fond of pure romance or slice-of-life fiction, and I prefer science fiction to fantasy.
I'm currently in the process of reading The Fountainhead
, which has successfully lived up to my expectations of being a morally reprehensible but acceptably diverting piece of fiction I only chose to read to better understand Bioshock
, so if that tells you anything about my likes and dislikes on fiction, good for you.
Edit: I forgot, graphic novels and comic books. I prefer American comic books to Japanese manga—and in fact I've never read a manga. I loved Spider-Man
and the Marvel Universe as a kid (never particularly liked DC, but they're alright), and now I'm getting into more mature stuff like Alan Moore
. I don't get to read these as often as conventional books, though, unfortunately.
