Book-wise I'll read pretty much anything you put in front of me. I can't really pinpoint specific genres I don't like but there have been some books I just haven't enjoyed:

.'Enduring Love' by Ian McEwan
. 'To Kill A Mockingbird' by Harper Lee - loved the film oddly enough but just couldn't get into the book
. 'The Time Traveler's Wife' by Audrey Niffenegger - Do actually quite like this book but it's sooo hard to ead with all the time skips and such

And don't even get me started on the whole Twilight saga! I vehemently despise it because (and this is just my opinion) Stephanie Meyer is being paid millions for a poorly crafted plot who's main character is a Mary-Sue. Also, Sparkly Vampires?? WTF! I mean yeah, creative license with vampire lore and all  that but come on.

Real vampires are turning in their coffins ;D But all my friends are Twilight obsessives so when they start talking about it I kind of ha ve to just tune them out lol.

Movie-wise it's pretty much the same but I don't like thriller - anything too psychological because my thinking is I watch movies when I want to escape and can't be bothered to make the effort and read a book (shocking I know but it doesn't happen often) so what I want from a film is something that I can watch and enjoy but that doesn't confuse me too much or make me think too much.

I also don't enjoy book adaptations that change the book ridiculously or miss important bits out (cough Harry Potter 4 cough) and horror films without a proper ending, like one missed call.

okay, rant over now - normal service will be resumed shortly.
