Detective/Mystery: I prefer police procedural and hard boiled detective novels, but I like cosy too.
Fantasy: I love convincing world building, something that is fresh and not your stereotypical medieval society.
Sci-Fi: While I love books that explore the impact of technology on humanity and trashumanism, I love space opera too.
Comedy: I love gentle humour and quick wit. Sadly many TV comedies hit my embarassment squick hard.
Romance: This explains my fandom reading habit.

Sufficiently Advanced
Tailslanta
Wandering Monster High School
Lady BlackBird
JAGS: Wonderland
