Diane  | 12949 comments According to this quiz:
http://www.allthetests.com/quiz13/qui...

...I am a balance of Classic, Romance, and Fantasy with a splash of Horror...

What genre are you?


message 2: by Joseph (new)

Joseph  (bluemanticore) | 76 comments 40% Classic, 30% Romance, 10% Humor, 10% Fantasy, and %10 Horror.
To be honest, kind of surprising, I thought I'd be a bit more fantasy and not so much romance. :-)


message 3: by Connie (new)

Connie G (connie_g) | 860 comments 50% Classic, 40% Romance, and 10% Fantasy. I think the poll was right on--I would have been surprised if Horror showed up.


message 4: by Sam (new)

Sam (aramsamsam) 40% Fantasy, 30% Romance, 20% Classic, 10% Horror.

Only because I like a dark bedroom and didn't find a better answer to the "Whatr happens in your future"-question than the dragon thing, doesn't mean I am 40% fantasy, right? Only to let you know: I do NOT like romance at all and I very very VERY seldom read horror. I mostly do read classics mixed with a fantasy book now and then.
Could have been fun, but I think this test is way too short to say anything about me.

Actually I don't like Horror and I love to read Humor and laugh with family and friends. I suppose the 60% Romance is true but I felt some of the questions were very difficult to choose an answer

But I'm a big fantasy fan, I like humorous books, and I rarely read romance.

Still a fun quiz.


message 9: by Arda (new)

Arda (arda_nl) | 33 comments 40% romance
40% classic
10% humor
10% horror
0% fantasy

if these are the choices I think their about right... maybe I would switch the 10% horror for fantasy, because I don't like horror at all!

Antje གརས པཅ Parker | 27 comments For 30 % you are: You are a CLASSIC. You are completely normal, and are definitely down to earth. You have plans for the future which generally involve a good education, and are unlikely to do something like run off and elope. You've probably got a lot of friends because people generally find you endearing.
% of Quiz participants had this profile!

You could also get this result:
For 20 % you are: You are HUMOR. You like to joke around with your friends, and you have a lot of friends. You like to be the center of attention, but everyone you know also wants you to be the center of attention because you're so darned funny, so that's alright. Everyone likes you for the most part, but you can sometimes come off as a bit cocky.

Or even this one:
For 20 % you are: You are FANTASY. You live in a dream world, and enjoy fairy tales, although you may not admit it. Your one wish would be something fantastic like to be able to do magic or fly. You want to believe in magic, even if you don't. You are constantly daydreaming, and are very creative.

Or even this one:
For 20 % you are: You are ROMANCE. You are romantic and like things to be beautiful and classy. You also prefer things formal, and enjoy relationships a lot.

Or even this one:
For 10 % you are: You are HORROR. You are constantly telling scary stories with which you are obsessed, and you think death is always just around the corner. You have a somewhat dark sense of humor, and are pretty much normal except for that.

Debra Brown (debrabrown) | 13 comments For 80 % you are: You are ROMANCE.

I tried to avoid fantasy, but the truth of it came out. I am a bit in the fantasy world. Pretty much the Jane Austen kind of fantasy, not with dragons.

DUMB quiz, what did it have to do with reading?
50% Classic

Where are the History, Travel, Arts, etc. sections?
and although I do read some of what is considered sci-fi or fantasy, I don't read Romance (20%!) Where is the category for Mysteries & Thrillers? I guess the quiz was too girly for me.


message 19: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Hager (cheryl_is_reading) 60% Classic, 20% Romance, 10% Fantasy, 10% Horror, 0% Humor

I do like reading the classics, but I am a much bigger fan of fantasy. The questions in the quiz were...a bit silly. I guess that's why I got 0% on humor...hehehehe

Explains at least my reading preferences. :)


message 29: by LindaJ^ (new)

LindaJ^ (lindajs) There were no answers to any of the questions that fit me. I do like to go to nice restaurants, so I guess that makes me romantic? While I'll read just about anything, romance and horror are 2 genres I avoid. I do not think the quiz is designed for folks over 30 and since it has been awhile since I saw that birthday, I'll just ignore the results and continue to read what I like -- Sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, contemporary fiction, biographies, etc.

message 40: by Julia (new)

Julia (juliastrimer) LOL--I got 0% for Fantasy, and that's my favorite genre! The 50% for classic works, but I agree with Linda: "I do not think the quiz is designed for folks over 30 and since it has been awhile since I saw that birthday...." Yep, at 73, some of those questions didn't make much sense to me :-)

message 42: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Teper (shanteper) I am 40% romance, 30% classic, 20% fantasy, and 10% horror. As a reader of mainly mysteries, I wonder why that genre wasn't included. I don't read romances, but do like a little love in my mysteries. I do like classics and some fantasies if they play by consistent rules. I like to be scared, but am not real fond of horror because it allows things to remain unexplained. A giant spider comes down from space and sends out an evil clown to do its bidding. A person has to have questions about this, and, when the author doesn't give a credible answer, I feel the urge to throw the book against a wall.
I'm not sure this quiz is effective since we sometimes read to make up for what we are lacking in real life rather than to reflect the way we are already living.


message 43: by Sharon (new)

Sharon | 7 comments Silly quiz! I couldn't answer half the questions because the alternatives were far too limiting. For instance, food. I don't eat any of the choices given. Or the bedroom. Or the outfit. Or favourite places to go. Or where do you see your future. Oh well. Guess I had too much time to waste -- guess I know what kind of book genre I am!
