Topical Tropical Trinity
Season 1 – Week 1
Question Fun Directory
Topical Tropical Trinity questions are about your interests, your passions, your hobbies and activities and about living your life in gene⁰ral.
Each weekly game will have a fixed ‘subject’ and ask you two basic questions – and one three fold question.
|What are your favourite genres to read?
I have to do quite a bit of scientific reading in connection with my work so I like to keep my recreational reading very light. My favourite genres are mystery/thriller as in Agatha Christie. I also enjoy romantic comedies especially those in a period setting like the ones by Georgette Heyer. Chick-lit is also one of my faves, especially Sophie Kinsella and Helen Fielding.
|What are your favourite genres to write about?
Surprisingly, I like to write non-fiction whereas I read mainly fiction. Personal development is one of my favourite genres. I also love to write about food, coffee and tea. Book and movie reviews are quite fun to write too.
Why do you like your favourite reading genres – what is it that appeals to you about them – please discuss.
With thrillers and mysteries, I think it is the puzzle that keeps me hooked. Also, in country house mysteries I love the settings. With chick-lit and romances, I guess because of their entertainment value.
What prompts you to write about your favourite genres?
I love to eat and therefore like to write about food. As for personal development, I don’t really know–maybe they are ideas and suggestions that I would like to implement in my own life– I am not sure. It just happens.
What do you think are the most popular read and written about genres and why?
I think this is difficult to answer because the popularity would vary with the demographic.
| I always enjoy reading as well as writing about reading and writing so thanks for the opportunity Rory.
