I think it's pretty obvious that I prefer YA sci-fi/fantasy novels, but I've been on a dystopian/post-apocalyptic kick lately, and I don't foresee that coming to an end anytime soon. When people recommend books to me, they usually opt for paranormal-type reads, though, based on previous experience. I don't have a big history with contemporary novels, but I have been known to give them a shot now and again, and in fact, find that I enjoy them a lot more than I expected to.
My new favorite genre, though, is definitely dystopian/post-apocalyptic. My love of this genre started way back in high school, though, when we were required to read 1984, Animal Farm, and Fahrenheit 451. Those are still some of my favorite books, and they paved the way for a love of all things related to the end of the world as we know it. (Aw, geez, now I have that song stuck in my head! Great.)
